Qujing City
(qǔ jìng shì 曲靖市) is located in the center of the Yunnan - Guizhou Altiplano (yún guì gāo yuán 云贵高原). It is a very important land route connecting Yunnan Province (yún nán 云南) with other parts of China, and thus has been called "the Gate to Yunnan" and "the Throat of Yunnan". The Wumeng Mountain (wū méng shān 乌蒙山) stretches for hundreds of miles, and is high in the northwest and low in the southeast. The Mountain is the watershed of the two water systems: the Yangtze River (zhǎng jiāng 长江) and the Zhujiang River (zhū jiāng 珠江).

China Housing

削足适履(xuē zú shì lǚ)
Learn Chinese - Chinese Idiom


The Han Dynasty (hàn cháo汉朝) book titled Huai Nan Zi (huaí nán zǐ 淮南子) tells a story about a man who went out to buy shoes. The shopkeeper handed him a pair that was small. The foolish man, instead of asking for another pair, tried to cut his feet to fit the shoes. When the foolish man went to buy a cap, the first cap he tried was too small, so he tried to cut off his scalp so that the cap would fit. This idiom satirizes those who handle things without considering the real situation, but rigidly adapt unsuitable rules.

Guangzhou Dreams - An Expat Pet-keeper's Dilemma
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China

Donald, a frequent traveler between New Zealand and China, to think about how to deal with his pet bunny Jaz, when he decided to move back to China with his Chinese girlfriend.

Moving house is something that most people go through, for an expat, it is just a way of life. Packing up your entire house and ensuring it can be squeezed into 30kg of check-in and 7kg of hand luggage can be a painful and emotional process. However, it becomes even more difficult to organize when a small pet is involved. I am currently beginning the process of packing up my life again and heading back to China. Recently, my girlfriend and I packed all of our belongings into our small car, including our pet rabbit, her cage and bag of hay and left our apartment to travel to my hometown where my parents live, to drop off most of our things before heading overseas. Our little bunny Jaz was not impressed with being bundled into the car and then stuck for four hours in the bowels of a ferry, before being driven a further two hours to our temporary destination. Since arriving, we have unloaded most of our belongings and we are commencing the process of again condensing our lives into one suitcase and a bag.

Love Relationship --- A Smile Goes A Long Way
Sanya, Toronto Canada & Tony, Toronto Canada

I joined World Friends to find a language tutor and someone to talk to about travel and Japan. Accidentally I clicked on a picture of a cute guy who lived in the same city and sent him a smile and he emailed me back. We exchanged emails for a week and started to chat online, then moved on to phone. We talked on the phone every night and got closer day by day. We met up expecting to be friends, however the meeting lead to something else. I sent him a smile in the middle of January, and he asked me out at the beginning of February. We have been together ever since. We both joined to meet people from Japan and to learn Japanese, however we ended up finding each other, a Taiwanese boy and a Serbian girl. We both thank you so much for everything! Without our interest in the Japanese Culture and this great site we would have never met. I read the stories of people who met their spouses here but never thought i would find the perfect guy on this website.
