Guide: Christmas Shopping in Shenzhen

on 11/24/2016 - 05:04 pm

Welcome to this Special Edition: Guide to Christmas Shopping in Shenzhen Videocast and Newsletter. 
 
I know it's really easy nowadays to order things online; however there is a growing pollution problem caused by the extra packaging used to fulfill the rapidly increasing online orders. Last year the waste from these courier services in China was estimated at 4 million tons to deliver 20 billion parcels...  and that's not including delivery truck emmissions. So today we would like to encourage you to buy locally. Not only will you help lower the impact, you'll also be supporting local businesses in the place we live.

How Christmas Came to China: Never Before Seen Photo of the Historic Visit

on 11/24/2016 - 05:04 pm

IT was 1978, before any other international figure or head of state had met with the new Vice Chairman Deng Xiaoping. Times were tough around the world. The U.S. was suffering from years of their energy crisis, global unemployment rates were rising sharply, and China was wanting to re-define itself after the Cultural Revolution.

Before China became the manufacturing powerhous ...

What's Happened to GobbleTom?

on 11/23/2016 - 04:46 pm

Yesterday we announced our first (and probably last) FREE Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway. This wasn't your standard turkey giveaway; however... our turkey was still alive.
 
When GobbleTom first arrived and we started the giveaway, we really didn't care what people did with him as long as they came to get him as soon as possible. However, the loveable GobbleTom stole the hearts of many of our WeChat followers and even ours. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep and had to hand him over.
 
Watch the video below to see what happened to GobbleTom
