We did that for about 40 charming, left field and would-be Leonardo di Caprio actors, eisteddfod queens and Little Miss Sunshines. I would have done the whole thing for free but I got paid 300 yuan for the afternoon. Plus some watermelon slices because it's a hot day. Now the city of Yangzhou is famous for its Weiyung cusine, perhaps best known internationally as Yangzhou dan chou fan which is special fried rice literally Yangzhou egg fried rice. They are also famous for wonderful dumplings. So my wife and I went to a really authentic but inexpensive dumpling restaurant and we had these crab, pork and seafood soup filled dumplings (xiao long bao) that were to die for. It's a challenge to eat them as the soup spills forth in any way to wishes for the inexperienced eater. But it's a challenge worth taking again and again.

It's a Sunday in famous classical city of Yangzhou, Jiangsu province and I scored an unexpected role as a substitute judge of an English competition for kids. It's from a private school that runs classes in the smaller cities and towns including the backwater where my wife works. All these cute girls dressed up beautifully in their special party frocks and shiny leather shoes turn up to perform. Plus quirky boys with slicked or spiky hair and even boyishly smart casual dress. One tiger even had braces. They are aged 5 to 11 and they try so hard and they are so funny as soon as you get outside the set routine or even inside the set routine sometimes.
英国《每日邮报》去年在评论中国游客 “节礼日大抢购”时无序表现时坦率指出，部分东道主商家不仅想方设法招徕出手大方的中国客人，还特别营造抢购的氛围，制造一些刺激消费欲的噱头，中国人在其商店、柜台上的 “挤”和 “抢”，其实未必不是这些嘴上抱怨不断的商人们所乐意看到的。不仅如此，一些 “挤”和 “抢”其实根本就是很正常的，如圣诞-新年消费周各主要商场的拥挤和争抢，本就是欧美的传统习惯，只是如今多了远道而来的中国人，而后者又对在西方购物充满好奇心，用新闻照片和电视镜头刻意渲染 “中国人在抢购”，其实是有些片面的。
