The Good, The Bad & The Weird
----------Unique Aspects of the Chinese Culture

As the saying goes, "It's an idiot to generalize". Well, in real life, idiots are everywhere. Even a saint, past or present, tends to be one sometime in his life-time. It's especially true when it comes to the topic of a culture---- a vague term---like that of China. What you like, you would say, is good; What you dislike would be bad; What you know little about or do not understand, would be said to be weird.
Well, let's find out from this page some good, bad or weird aspects of Chinese Culture. Pardon me, I really do not mean that you are an idiot like me saying something like this. Enjoy your stay and happy surfing!
