I haven't yet had use for a map that covers the entire of China, but will eventually. One that covers the city I live in would be fucking useful though...

I'm having to smoke Chinese straights at the mo due to running out of rolling baccy. Will be off to Guangzhou in the near future to stock up. No letters sent as yet.

What is a "snide DVD", or indeed a "VCD"?

you get stared at by children, but mainly just before they run up to you to try and say "hello". A *lot* of gorgeous young girls also like to come up and introduce themselves as well. And no, they are not Ladies of the Night. Almost got dragged to a hotel room my a seriously fuckable MILF the other night. The chicks here love the Western cock.

I was about to say that I have yet to be referred to as a foreign devil, then I remembered I have been. The Chinese lads are TOP BANTZ m7. Called me a foreign devil while providing lashings of beer. TRUE LADS, CHINALADS.


Great Internet Wall is not very great. Or indeed wall-like. I believe you will have more difficulty accessing websites in the UK at the moment than China. Most video porn blocked (I checked, purely for research purposes, you understand - as I don't need porn in China, see above Re: Chinese chicks). Motherless isn't. Youtube, Fakkybuk and Shitter also blocked, along with the NYT. No skin off my nose...

VPNs aplenty should I really need to see one of these sites, but to be honest I can't really see why I would. Accessing Gmail's webclient can be a bit of a chore, but Thunderbird accesses it fine.

Brainwashing and spoonfeeding? Not seen any mate. People here are happy, friendly and cheerful. Lovely people they are, but I was warned in advance to to talk politics - mainly because people don't understand why they should have any opinions on the matter, rather than being scared of doing so.

Aha, I had people staring in wonder as I rolled my own fags. Pirating DVDs is big in China. VCDs are mpegs embedded onto CD instead of DVD. They never really took off over here, but you could find them when I was last in China.

VCDs were available in the West in the pirate market, before this became obsolete as a business model (despite the government and MPAA/international equivalents around the world) in the past few years.

You could still see them in the PSX era. When DVD players became cheap and common then that was obviously the end of the tiny market for dodgy VCDs.

Obviously the idea of people paying for pirate software discs in the age of broadband is mostly already alien to the newer users online who can expect to stream or download virtually anything. Kind of similar to what happened to porn beforehand and the shock many would have at the idea of paying for that.

The discs are just based on demand. No internet so it's Mr Wong at the back of his cabbage shed with copies of netvideomodels. It's what all our dads did 30 years ago on a different format. There's loads of junior Wongs inviting their m8s round to watch the DVD they found on top of dad's wardrobe. And remembering to note the counter number on the DVD so they can rewind it to the bit when dad shot hid custard.

Dear. Merciful. Christ.

Right lads, a pro-tip for thee. Should one find oneself living on a beach in a tent for three months, and four weeks before you are due to move in to your apartment, and some cunt removes the equipment you are suing to wash your clothes, do *not*, I repeat, *not*, think "Oh fuck it, I've got enough to last me a month."

Ignore the ounces of sand coming out of the fabric. Ignore the smell of mildew from that time that you left your washing out in the rain.

Having just thrown a load in the sink the water went black almost immediately. Having let it soak for half an hour, rinsed it and gone to re-wash with significantly more washing powder, the water went black. Almost. Immediately.

Well, this is interesting. I had a knock on the door last night, odd in and of itself because only two people know where I live. 'Twas the Phillipino lady from next door, in a bit of a state, after having been beaten up by her soon-to-be-ex husband. Now, she had mentioned that she was leaving him and moving out after I asked why she was living under a tarpaulin on the roof with her kids. So, not completely out of the blue, and given the weather warnings I had been trying to work out where she was to re-offer my room while the rains kicked in.

Now, having made her a coffee, calmed her down and treated her wounds, she tells me that her husband is a meth addict, and she started smoking meth three weeks ago, during this process she lost 3 stone. Queue alarm bells ringing faintly...

She has free run of my place, under strict rules, and mainly only because she was honest, and had spent the last 36 hours going cold turkey, alone, on the beach, before she dared speak to me - for junkies this is a good thing.

So, apparently my lovely new flat is now the local women's refuge and halfway house. Was not expecting that...going fine so far though, and she has accommodation lined up in two weeks, and it turns out I know the landlord, so will be checking on this one. I have also helped two friends clean their lives up, so I am hardly inexperienced.

Unlikely, Teenlad. I have photographs of her passport, ID card and bank details. I have spoken to both her boss (who I know), and her new landlord, (who I know). Later tonight I receive payment of rent upfront, as today is payday, for the next two weeks. No rent? No bed.

I'm not screwing her, and I have had a little chat with various of the more interesting characters around here. We have the protection, he don't. And I do above her, because they respect me for dealing with it myself.

At the end of the day, I am going to be eating like a king. Probably helps that anything that might be chosen to be stolen, of mine, is worth considerably less than two months rent. Oh, and I am the only one with keys.
