O.o ohh ok. I'm American-Chinese, and I don't like to go there.

Why don't you like to visit china, and what part do you visit?

No actually I think it was because I got airsick on the plane so I didn't feel well there. I went to FuZhou, Wu Yi Shan, and Beijing.

Are you good at playing the piano?
Are you good at math?
Are you a terrible driver?

1) Nope, but a heck load of Chinese people in Singapore are.
2) I used to be, till I got lazy. Generally yes, I would say I'm above average for math. But don't stereotype.
3) On Burnout and Need For Speed yes.

ding ding ding no modesty coming through

Are you good at playing the piano?

After 20 years of it, I daresay I am.

Are you good at math?

When I was studying it I was among the best in the country. I daresay I'm far from it now!

Are you a terrible driver?

There's no such thing as a good driver in Melbourne (Australia). But if it's a race you're talking, bring it.

Anyway.

Having read through this thread, I noticed that there were two types of question. One were actually thought provoking questions that might give us some insight into China and Chinese culture compared to the rest of the world. The other pretty much go "hey i herd chinese were liek dis hurr". Now I'm guessing some of you probably haven't even seen a Chinese person in your life, but in the interests of keeping the discussion relevant to WEPR, I'd like questions to focus more on finding out about China itself. In particular, I'm interested to know about the changing face of China's affluent and the evolving relationship between them and the government, a local's take on the CCP's humanitarian track record esp. those allegations of the organ trade blackmarket and religious oppression. And internet censorship.

Stuff like that, those are the questions we like to see in WEPR. Less "do you eat dogs?" (which was effectively answered earlier anyway.)

Liek is it troo u eat teh tiger wang fer the sexing?

Anyways! Have not really bothered to wade through the muck of questions to get here, so apologies if one of my questions has already been asked.

What have you noticed in your day to day life of the state censorship of 'objectionable' material? Because in the West we always hear of the Chinese government using threats and bullying of smaller, non-state approved news organizations to silence events/ideas which put the acting government in a poor light. Along with local media blackouts, the censorship of many websites has been in the news on and off for the past year or so.
How hard if it for you to, for example, access certain websites and such?

I'm afraid yes Voidy, and not just in China, in SEA too.

Voidy and Strop, you'd be surprised how enterprising the Chinese get when it gets to hacking and circumventing the Great Firewall of China. My friend's 14 and she got Facebook up and running pretty easily by herself after we had a student exchange program. They use proxies a lot of the time. Of course, there is anger, Jasmine Revolution cough, but many of the Chinese just laugh it off and continue using whatever banned website they were.

If they want to that is, Baidu and QQ are pretty much mirror image sites of Google and MSN. I forgot what was their version of FB though.

Also, this cute little song which I don't know if it can be allowed past AG's censorship rules. Don't ''harmonize'' it for me please? But for the sake of its academic value I'm just going to put it here. Read the description on the vid.

Yes I suppose they filter a lot of the news and such, but no matter, us Jews of the East always have a way around.

You know, such questions are more easily answered if you Google them, seeing that most of us won't actually go around memorising legislation of our countries.

Anti-animal cruelty laws first passed in 2009.
Short report in the Chinese papers.
