The Final Weekend...

on 06/23/2016 - 01:45 pm

It's the final weekend of June and things are slowing down a bit here in Shekou. The streets are quieter now that all those rambuncious teachers have left for the summer.  Couple that with all the money Brits here will loose in the exchange rate after choosing to leave the EU, means the rest of us are going to need to pick up the slack a bit. Here's a short list to help us fulfill our duties this weekend... and don't forget about the Beach Party on July 3rd! More details below. Have a great weekend!

Solutions to the Start of a Sad Summer

on 06/03/2016 - 05:05 pm

Sunday is the big day and there isn't much going on this weekend so it may be a good idea to rest and preserve your energy or spend the time with those that will be leaving us this summer. If you're doing the latter, there's something below to help you do that.
By now you've probably all seen the notice. Some of you may also have experienced delays due to the computer crash; or may even have been sent away to come back another day. Multiple sources have confirmed that this poster is true. If you still want to believe it's a hoax, you're entitled to your own opinion; however, we see no reason to use that as an excuse to liv ...

A Weekend of Thunderstorms... OR NOT!

on 05/27/2016 - 08:49 am

The weather report is driving me nuts. A couple of days ago they were predicting thunderstorms starting mid-week and going on through the weekend. I haven't seen any rain yet, let alone thunderstorms but they're still predicting them all weekend long. In fact, they forecast a 60% chance of thunderstorms on Sunday, 80% chance for Saturday and a 100% chance for today. Those are pretty cocky statements considering they've been wrong the last couple of days. Anyway, here's hoping that they're wrong again. Enjoy the weekend!

The 'I Love You' Weekend

on 05/19/2016 - 03:20 pm

Today is May 20th and the interwebs seem to be all abuzz with love here in China. Not officially any sort of actual holiday or celebration (yet), the hype around this day stems ultimately from human laziness. What better way to say I love you then via text with an abbreviation? The story goes that the numbers 5, 2, and 0, when pronounced together, sound like "I love you" in Chinese. 5 (pronounced "WU") sounds like "Wo" (meaning "I"), 2 (pronounced like the letter "R") for some apparently sounds like "Ai" (meaning "Love), and 0 (pronounced "LING") strangely sounds like "Ni" to some people; which means "you". It's funny how I've been here 9 years and I can't get a taxi driver to understand me ...

Friday the 13th Weekend

on 05/12/2016 - 08:02 am

If you spend any amount of time in China, you'll quickly see that the number four is their unlucky number. The counterpart for many of us is the number 13. Don't ask me why, it just is. Anyway, in case you haven't noticed yet, today is Friday the 13th! According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day, making it the most feared day and date in history. Millions refuse to even leave their house on this day. Across the pond, a study in the British Medical Journal, published in 1993, concluded that there "is a significant level of traffic-related incidences on ...
