Is Bitcoin a Chinese Financial Weapon?

"What's going on guys. It is thursday april eight and today we have a juicy one. We're talking about a question. Brought up by peter thiel yesterday. Is bitcoin a chinese financial weapon. So some days. I'll be honest. It's a bit of a struggle figuring out what to dedicate a show to. That's less so in the bull market certainly a little bit more in the bear markets. Other days there's some big news that makes it obvious the most interesting days however are when it's not big news item but a big community discussion that drives the days content so when i saw headlines last night coming out saying that peter thiel a stalwart supporter of bitcoin had said that bitcoin was a weapon of the chinese government and that because of that the us government should be asking more questions about how that works. Oh boy did. I know that this was going to be today's topic. I want to have this conversation in three parts. First i want to look at interpretations of what the actually said second. I want to look at the specific idea of bitcoin as a weapon for the chinese government. And i want to look more broadly at the geopolitical geostrategic battle around the world reserve currency. As i've said innumerable times this is a show about power shifts power so this should be a fun part one. What actually said now i will be honest the parsing and pinching trying to argue what a specific person meant when they said something is actually sort of the least interesting part of this discussion to me much more fascinated in the broader conversation at brings up however there are a lot of people on all sides of this discussion trying to lay claim to the statement itself. So let's look at that first and before we get into interpretations actually listened to what he said from china's point of view. They want to get on. They don't like the us having this reserve currency because it gives us a lot of leverage over iranian oil supply chains and all sorts of things like that they like They don't want the room to become a reserve currency. Because then you have to open your capital count and do all sorts of things that they really don't want to do on the euro you could think of as you know is in part chinese weapon against the dollar didn't last decade hasn't quite worked out that way but that was china we've liked to see to reserve currencies like like the euro and know even though i'm sort of pro crypto pro. Bitcoin maximalist person. I i do wonder whether at this point. Bitcoin is also should also be taught in part of as a chinese of financial weapon against the us. Where it's it is. It threatens fiat money but especially threatens the the us dollar and And china wants to do things to weaken it. So it's sort of china's long bitcoin and perhaps from political perspective The us should be a little bit off some tougher questions about exactly how that works.

Hong Kong Tries to Soothe the Rich With a Big Tax Break

"Talk business and tax breaks now because it's something being discussed in Hong Kong by officials who are hoping these maybe a sweetness to help attract the best investors and joining us Is our business correspondent Andrea would and you tell us a bit more about these tax breaks and what exactly they're planning. Well, this being this, you know, Hong Kong has had a lot of political turmoil. Over the past two years, the Beijing has imposed the national security law on Hong Kong to try and quell that And its circuit, Bt's made Hong Kong perhaps a less attractive place to live a Zoricic olt. Hong Kong officials now seem to be talking about trying to encourage businesses. Especially in finance to stay in the city rather than go to its old rival Singapore or other cities in the region. Some of the key things we're waiting for more details, but one of the key things is helping private equity investors. There's a thing where the people of the the center of private Equity Investments, the general partners, These are people who actually run the fund. They could get paid Some of the way that they make their money is through a technique known as carried interest. Now this is always very controversial about whether it should be taxed or not. Anyway, Hong Kong seems to be prepared to give concessions so that private equity investors Don't have to pay this thing's tax. And then there's other incentives around as well to make it easier for companies that are based in Hong home to access it rich people on the mainland off China and try and near look after their wealth management needs. Do they really think that these businesses are going to be swayed or would by this is that he given the kind of level of of disquiet there's been even in business circles as to the political turmoil. Well. Traditionally, Hong Kong has bean quite in a political place. And cynics say that you're basically as long as you can make money. People are going to stay in Hong Kong. I mean, it started off as a free port, you know, back in Victorian times under the British, and it's always being very hasn't had much in the way of regulations is being very great. It should be in a great place for entrepreneurs. Make money. So I think this perhaps a rather cynical view here is that the big finance companies if you let them make more money by reducing their taxes, and so on, they are going to stay in her in Hong Kong. On that people are going to they may well have foreigners may well have political views, but they're not political activists. You know it's not their country, so the theory is that companies will stay here if they can make If they can make bigger profits.

Correct is a very very intense here so we event industry right so our job is to get people together. The most Ironic is that Do q one prepared for twenty twenty was the best q. One ever in the history of the company. I've been here for twenty years companies years old and then obviously january twenty third They had to shut down a one and who a so. I left on that same day for chinese new year.

We were in big trouble at some point. I just ask myself. Should i just give up. Actually we just call it a day. The beautiful thing is after. I was asking myself this question. The answer is then. I love my job so i will do everything i can to make it work. So it's all about the domestic demands and is very interesting because a lot of the Wealthier Chinese people that were used to spend some of their money outside of china traveling Buying luxury goods now have no options but to spend that same money within the country And that's been supporting A lot of the luxury brands luxury hotels That we are working with so it's not all rosy nuts everyone was able to keep the same income. Some people are still working on a full days a week. Basis with some salary cuts but overall The economy's is healthy and most of the brands. We are working with Are doing very very good. And spending more in developing the demand growth for for twenty twenty one. Well what it does is. I think it does give hope to people who are listening. Perhaps not in. China the rebound. When it happens it happens. Big and people who've been stuck indoors. People haven't traveled. They all suddenly will travel. And it'll be a huge bounce right. Yes i completely agree with you. The hope is there. And the chinese market is living proof that when you give them the opportunity to spend money and travel they will do so very hopeful for the future of tourism and travel In in general.

I walked two meetings. I walk back kids. So i'm doing something for my health but i am still not running but i think he's executive periods. You just need running walking about giving Your brain the space to process. I can't tell you running saved my your again. It was so hot there was so much to process making the right decisions at the right time.

So don't use stickers they use multi guns and that my favorite one is the data into one with the bandanna. Looks very much like me running represent me so. I didn't take that box. But i hope i hope you give me a pass. Well i would ordinarily just chuck you out but over at the end of the interview. So what can i do. I actually like this one too. This is a particular we chat imo to on. There isn't something which is in the usual emoji which comes close to this one right true. I never realized that the that's why it passes the test. You can still use that thank you. That's just an exception. What is your go-to song to sing. At k-tvhe people that know me know that the thing fear most is to go to a kit. It has to be a client asking me or i need to be super drunk to be able to accept. The invitation was actually. I think terrorized because one of my first trip and my first internship in china. We happen to think in a lobby of the hotel and i realized that my thinking was going in the whole building so terrible hotel was phased disability. It's adele in xinjiang. Nine thousand nine hundred ninety two thousand so it was a long time ago but today fat to do it. I will probably go for jensen. C. which is chinese Pop singer twenty years ago. He seemed very simple songs. Like dorm in the new har concord congo this type of thing very lighthearted and i think that i can do. It's the same song that stefan shows no way. There's one reason for that is that we had the same teacher in chinese and probably will learn it at that time. Say there is a reason. Yes well since knowing it from stefan. I've learned that song. It's super easy. That's why that's the only one that could pretend to sing. So i keep it so and finally what other china-related media sources of information you rely on. I got rated content twice a week at the occasion of my chinese class. Because my chinese teacher will pick up the curated content from the news and we'll be having review of Very good content. so i'm learning language. But actually i'm learning whole story of of topics and i learned things that i never read in the media usually so that's excellent. Well thank you so much for that matter and finally the last thing before you leave. Who would you recommend that i interview. In the next season of mosaic of china congress do he has arrived in china Around twenty years before mean most. Interestingly he has recently opened a van yard. Oh a vineyard vineyards vineyard union And that's for sure. One that i will listen to next season. So i'm really looking forward to hear beth ron next year. Thanks so much let meetings. Thanks so scowl. I don't have favorites in this podcast. But always be a fan of anyone who inhabits that space between languages where you have sounds and meanings on one side. That simply do not correspond with the other. It reminds me of the episode with three vast mandra from season. One episode fifteen who philosophized that saying his name in chinese was about as futile as trying to say his name in mathematics. So ladimir if you're both listening you need to get together if you're a fan of playing around with mandarin. I want to recommend you. Listen to the mandarin slang. Guide podcast with josh ogden davis. He has nothing to do with this show. I just like him as a person and.

"Sebastian lobby to see you same here. What has been your corona virus story. It's a little bit schizophrenic. Because we are here living our life but on the other side. We'll all of. Our families are back in europe in italy and france and we are struggling with them as well. A little bit yeah. Schizophrenic is the right word and also you're guilty because you're having a normal life compared to your family back in your. Yeah i think we talk a lot about privileged last time we talk. Yeah you realize how privileged you are to have this key to travel. Which is your passport where we could navigate. Covert fairly easily. Yes you had choices exactly right. Where are you right now. Is your job the same situation the same well. I'm actually in a transition. This is something we plan for years. And i'm moving out from sales and services to engineering okay. So with edith. Yeah let's talk about then steve. As the example you gave as somebody on the autism spectrum. You hired here in china. Have you noticed that. The people like steve and other people on the spectrum managed situation differently again. It's an opinion. Right so i think they have this capability to adapt to a less social environment. Nevertheless the challenge for us is. How do we keep link right. And how do we keep them engage because being in the office is also helping them engaging socializing with colleagues in eventually customers as well and this has been taken away from them. For example steve had a buddy that was sitting very close to him and being there to help him and and and eventually support him and and and vice versa and of course with not being physically together. then you need to look for different communication method. In by the way steve alone we hired a couple of other employees in the spectrum. We are in the process to hire one right now because we didn't want covert to be our excuse not to continue. That's great because it's like a muscle that if you don't exercise it it will start to atrophy. That's interesting because that's a conversation i had yesterday with few other people were talking about completely different subject. Lgbtq it's very easy to be lgbtq friendly during the month of june because its demands of lgbtq nevertheless. it's all those other months that stuff because this is where you need to be consistent. This is where you'd be really inclusive where nobody's looking where nobody's watching. When we met fifteen months ago we were establishing a lot of foundations that we see today holding our entire building of diversity and inclusion with the company many of the actions that we started that i started. Personally i am very likely involved which means it's been embedded in the culture exactly in. That's what i'm most proud of. Not so much of what. I've done but much more of the seeds that have been planted in trees that have grown. Well that's great and you. It's nice to hear that a year on it's not just a story but it's the legacy sebastien thank you so much it's been great to catch up with you again. You actually referred somebody. Who for certain reasons could not be part of the next season of the podcast but we have a very nice person who could step in. And so i will include parts of this interview in that episode. It's still been a great excuse to catch up with you. So good luck with the future. Thank you oscar..

I say it's not perfect but is not that perfect. What users said. Yeah yeah.

You had always been a professor in waiting. No i am black. Sheep was never to student since day. One i was extremely successful in my college life. I was at a bar and involving low code union and fashions and probably danes. That sort of different things that you say gangs. Yeah yeah so wait. Let's go to the gangs element them because this is where. I think you have an interesting background now for somebody who is a professor today. I think i understand the tonys underworld quite a law. Oh you do. I do yeah. It's peers that it's always involving a lot of literal lot of pretty woman and a lot of drunken guys and cash. I can see how that would have given you some of the skills that you use now us. Probably the same how i deal with. My vice-chancellors improvised shows are definitely a powerful guys are old saying gene. Thank you so much. Okay okay well. Let's move onto part too great. Are you ready. i'll try my best. Okay what is your favorite china related fact compared to the size of continental europe the variety in china has. Because i know it is diverse. But it's one point. Four and the style is as bid on on europe so it should be diverse but the truth is not. Yeah okay well. That should raise some questions. Because i think some people would argue with that. Definitely please question to do. You have a favorite word or phrase in chinese. Yeah especially mainland chinese. There are a lot of terms that we don't use that in tyler. Gay lee to diff- power and e is over heart. And the first time i heard i simply don't understand but it's so vivid. Okay let's unpick that. What does it actually mean that in. What context straw daily about the homeward batter. For god's sake gay lee. How right so is it. Like a is it. And but it's more Rough okay. i'm quite rough person. And then growing so. I understand that separate. He's a gore is to too much and then you is like hard hard and stiff right so it's too stiff to support. It means really really high standard. Okay so give me an example. Shusha lead on your at a damage. Achievement should be worrying. How funny what is your favorite within china. I would say okay. It's votaw small poyton. there's no real shanghainese right. there were from ningpo and soochow so the shawnise is actually the initial nimble niece and pseudo niece and then all the foreign influence on top. Yeah and actually. Sean talked to a lot of languages. Light law color. It means a gentleman who knows how to enjoy his party. Boudreau live color means white called a call. How funny yeah. And when we show lingerie show. Little laws zeming's disciplined woman. But anyway now is la's airfare over how funny so is from french. I guess because it is a city of immigrants like everyone here claim that i am a real low shahani's no okay next question if you left mainland china. What would you miss the most. And what would you miss. The least i would miss the culture There's a extra thing you see. I'm quite westernized. The way i think the wind starts whatsoever but I still lie to live. This sort of culture contacts would amies the bureaucracy. The bureaucracy of china is interesting to be extremely efficient. Extremely outdated as slow. Yeah at the same time Is there anything that still surprises. You about life in mainland china or ya definitely let me put this way using university education. We know that For the past twenty years. Chinese universities are forcing University lecturers and were traced to publish editor damage papers or journal articles. When we evaluate our colleagues. They still use honey papers. You have novelist yeah. Yes so it. Engenders a society which follows the kpi's yeah because china is shite dented. So it's understandable when we need to manage this country and this stealth people or universities through a very contemplative way. But i am a person who is in charge of evaluate in people's tell. It's day i have to shoot foreign talents. I don't believe in quantitative standards because it's impossible. Where's your favorite place to go out to eat or drink or just hang out. I still light my party. Bolger french session nightlife the bossed trough as the western restaurants are the best in china does not comparison. And do you have one particular place that jumps out.

Yes that's right and so what has been your story Well I think Been fortunate that Everyone has been healthy from a family standpoint and from From a work standpoint you know a lot of the things that make tokyo magical. You know involve the after work. I going for dinner having a beer. All of those little is a little small places are not always the places where you should go in terms of covid safety either very closed before talking without the mass or drinking whatever. So if you haven't been able to experience all of That japan has to offer in that context and also some restrictions about travel that i couldn't leave and return so that left me not being able to see my family and my family still can't come in so that's a little disheartening but i'm hopeful that Not too long in the future. We'll be able to get through that good and you and i still communicate but are you now doing other things. Are you online for example. I have line and what's up but it's like going back to the nineteen twenties It's just it's so backwards. I tell the only thing.

"They're buying this product which you mean is less impulsive stuff in a way or from a different angle. It's up to us to create more excitement to create the new triggers to stimulate stimulate them. How interesting and that's a trend which you happening jarring and has now sustained beyond or is it something which you think will die down. It's something that is still going and we see it as a very deep trend. It's a reality check. China pressed on the pause button during this crisis. This had never happened as we know in the last twenty plus years pause people have time. They think they really value. And now i happen is the unpolished. And it's fast forward again. But in a new way yes it has been funny. How quickly things returned to normal here in a way. That is hard for others to understand. That's something where perhaps you can see more that was going under the surface. I think many people call it the new normal because people have a much heightened sense of safety hygiene health which was born out in terms of what they were purchasing. Of course what was being purchased. More are definitely hand creams for instance we saw that skincare haircare and even make up to a certain degree in this area. That we call beauty with a mask has not stopped. We're back to where we were. It's just that maybe people are buying different things within skin-care or within makeup or within haircare well thank you so much for that stefan. We're not going to go onto part to great. Are you ready. And let's begin. What is your favorite china-related fact. I think my all time. Favorite china-related Piece of trivia. Is this foreign policy anecdote that everybody knows. It's the story of the chinese premier July the premiere of german mile his response to a question from henry. Kissinger this is the early nineteen seventies when nixon and are engaging in direct talks with prc and join. Lie is asked by kissing her. Tha says the impact of the french revolution and as the story goes premiere july response. It's too early to tell but what is interesting is what lies behind the story because in china there's always layers and layers to decode. Actually one of the translators for kissing affairs a few years ago. Maybe three four years ago came out to say that this was a miss told story what really took place. According to him is that prime minister jew miss understood the question and rather than being asked to give his point of view. On the impact of the french revolution of those events of seventeen eighty-nine he thought he was being asked about the student. Protests that hit paris in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight so you see in this context join is answer was very sensible taken out of its context with the yours having polished The story into almost mid. It's totally different. It became an example of the patient and far-sighted nature of chinese leaders who think in increments of centuries as opposed to the short termism ovar western democratic politicians but in recalling the exchange. This one translator said there was a misunderstanding that was too delicious to fight correction. And as it happens this example to me it reveals the difference between a story that is true and one that contains a good deal of truth That's china for me. It's a question that leads to another question. A layer to another layer but always a good story. Yes i love it thank you. Do you have a favorite word or phrase in chinese. i want to quote a poet From the tang dynasty his name is by to eat where he tries to express his perplexity about another philosopher louder the founder of towers and is written in classical chinese very hard to understand but the title of his poem is reading louds it. He's quoting those who speak. Don't know and those who know don't speak this. I have heard from loud but if we say that louder is someone who knows. Why did he himself write a book of five thousand characters. The paradox said the paradox. And it's like the first point with julian lie for me China the chinese culture is always a source of questioning of looking beyond. What you see are what you read. Can you say that in chinese shirt. It's yen to boot. Jude's more see when you're out in draw doubt loudon you enter. Chen went very nice number three. What is your favorite destination within china. I've been lucky to have traveled to many places in china but beijing remains my favorite destination So much culture so many places also of course for me a lot of memories. It combines modernity and traditions and a friend of mine told me quite rightly so that if shanghai is the heart of china Beaching is its head. It's the brain. It's cold city. It's a mysterious city but it's a powerful city. It's an energizing city. At the scale of china nicely said especially since this program has been largely. Shanghai waited and i like the idea of sharing some of that weight with beijing next question. If you let china what would you miss the most. And what would you miss. The least i think i would miss the ding ding ding. You know those tries sicklers the settlers on their tricycles. I would miss this music I don't know how we would call them. Try sicklers their recyclers on tricycles And in this modern city with so many millions of people that is so tech advanced this little music it comes from another time. And what about the thing that you would miss. The least what i would miss the least. Everybody knows everything about you. Everything you know what went out what time he came back. What time your kid. What did they do. While you're this you're that and so at some point it becomes too much. That's actually a good point. Is there anything that still surprises you. Life in china every day all the time because again. When i think i've finally figured out why or what this means. That's exactly when the cards turn. And i realized i don't know so i'm everyday constantly amazed and reminded next question. Where is your favorite place to go out to eat or drink or just hang.

"Reality. After all you're absolutely right and the role that augmented reality is going to play is going to be greater and greater you know that everyone has his or her avatar now. There will be a day when we will be launching makeup or skin care for avatars. Stay tuned oscar. What you'll making me think of is how all these traditional companies and we talking here about beauty products but we could be talking about anything. You would never have thought ten years ago that your competitor was a digital company. And yet here we are right. And that's the beauty of being in china because these trends they scale up very quickly suppress we pivoted in oil we shifted. We're not going to be the number one beauty company only anymore. We're going to be the number one beauty tech company because tech and beauty. They're a perfect match to analyze your skin to skin diagnostic to understand your skin tone or even to model how your faith will age in the future. You're very right to understand. The aging of skin of chinese people linked to the specificities of china. Let me jump in and go back to something you said before which was about how when you see trends in china. They have a tendency to scale very fast. And i guess that is what your job is to make sure that when these trends do explode in china you are ahead of them. Are experiences have been that trance. Don't show up the keys to link the dots and then think what do they mean. I mentioned earlier. The smartphone we had done countless studies. About why women in buy makeup or what we should do in terms of better textures or whatever but when we started spotting people taking southeast posting southeast the the the real birth of social media here we were able to link the need for makeup but also hair-color that this would entail and then we could go back to brands that were saying. I'm not gonna launch in china. There's no future for makeup or go back and say no. Connect the dots look at what's happening. That's fascinating skillset. When i hear that it makes me think about big data in its how we all bombarded with these little points of data but the skill set we need now is to filter out the things that aren't important and make connections with the ones that all right you're very right. Were inundated with data especially in china. The scale of china so finding data. That's not the issue. It's the insights that's the more difficult but also of course the more enjoyable part of the equation. And how do you exercise those muscles then in terms of being able to connect these dots. Do you just wallow in the data or do you make connections with your personal life and then have an aha moment. Or how do you actually get to the solution. The last thing i want to do is bring my personal life into this process. Because i'm not the young consumer of beauty of china. So that's the one thing is to remove oneself. The beauty of our beauty industry is that consumers love to post their comments give their rating Review other people's comments so we all read these reviews. We all read the the ratings it's free it's plentiful it's meaningful and it's there and it's the real voice of consumers received lipstick and when i open and here's what i found out and they tell you to use it this way but if you Do it my way you'll see that it lasts longer or it's actually more mad or every day. It's so refreshing to be able to direct feedback from our consumers. What are the trends that you'd see that. Perhaps the average listener would be surprised to hear about say skin-care in the western markets anti age. Skin care for wrinkles skin care for early signs of aging. That's usually the women and men around thirty five forty years old when the wrinkles start to show up now any idea how old or young chinese consumer using the same anti-aids skin care products is here. You'll leading me in. Monday's going premed my misery around twenty two twenty three years old. They already using it. They're using it. I well why because this links back to chinese culture the chinese culture of prevention just general culture that you want to keep the balance. You don't wait for things to be broken to fix them. You prevent this from happening. Now what does it mean for us. L'oreal and our beauty brands. Of course the texture the routine the needs of a thirty five or forty year old women in europe has nothing to do with those of a twenty two year old chinese young lady so we have to adapt the formula we have to adopt the packaging. Same same product name but within a brand you can have different ranges. some that are more in the prevent categories and some that are more in the corrective categories. But now that china is so important for the beauty business now. The chinese consumers are such a key constituent of beauty as an industry when we come out with a new product. We have the chinese consumer in mind directly fascinating. And what have you learned with your finger on the pulse about how china and the chinese consume has pivoted in this special time. We all saw how resilient people were here. They dealt with the crisis and moved on now. It's not over. We're still learning. We still have to see what the more long term impact of this covid. Nineteen crisis will have in terms of behaviors in terms of mindset. But already very clearly we see some very important traits. People stayed home right a lot of use that time to watch tutorials to watch live streamers to learn new makeup skills new beauty skills. And you're saying this in an anecdotal away but this is backed up by data right absolutely because we can see through numerous ways what people were doing audiences for certain shows on different platforms in china. And then you can see the direct link of what was being discussed to what was being sold because didn't stop during this crisis. Just morphed a bit more into the digital e-commerce world but nothing stopped and then Coming out of covid. Nineteen definitely more rationality. It doesn't mean that people were not rationally now. They're rational beings if they were a little bit. Rational they come out of covid. Nineteen a bit more rational. There were very rational. They're extremely rational. So they're thinking about why.

There are some great stories from both chinese and non-chinese guests on way over the coming weeks if you're a new listener. Welcome and here's a quick recap of how the show works. There are three parts to each interview. The first part is a straightforward two way conversation which starts with the guest introducing object. That in some way describes their life in china. In the second part. I ask every guest. The same ten china related questions all on the theme of their personal experiences tastes and opinions and the final part is just one extra question where i ask each guest to nominate someone for the next season of mosaic of china. And this is how the tiles up. This mosaic will connect and continue to build out in future seasons. There are also a few things that anew in season two one of them being that this is the first time that we can link new guests back to the people who nominated them from the previous season of the show. So you'll hear how that works in the first episode coming next week. Secondly they'll be transcripts available now on mosaic of china dot com slash transcripts. These have been designed for anyone. Whose first language isn't or of course for listeners. With hearing impairments offer any english speakers who want to follow the words spoken in chinese. Thirdly if you'd like to join the community and track all the images alongside each episode on which at i finally able to rename the we chat account to mosaic of china. Or one word. So please at me from now on and i'll add you to. That's consistent with the mosaic of china accounts that already exists on instagram and facebook if you would still prefer to follow them and finally the biggest difference. The season two is that they will now be two versions of the show. The normal version will be exactly the same as last season. But i'm also releasing an extended version of the show where they will be an average of ten to twenty minutes of extra content for every episode. These will accumulate to up to ten hours of extra content over the course of the entire season and they can be accessed for the tiny cost of to. Us dollars per month at patriot dot com slash mosaic of china. That's p. r. e. n. dot com slash mazeikiu china. All one word. This is the way. I came up with to keep the show free from advertising to still allow you to listen to the series for free one at the same time create a way to accept donations towards the cost of putting this altogether. So if you have anything to spare and you want to help found this independent project as an early. Christmas present please head over to patriot dot com slash mosaic of china. And you can look forward to getting some great extra content to thanks to all of you for your continued support. And i hope to see you back here next week for episode one of the season..

"Sabrina Chen the dawn program curator from episode 26 Well, if you put me into the National Place, I was enjoying it, but maybe I will not actively choose to go. Maybe it's because I grown up in Shanghai. I've seen too many of that for me. I feel like a little bit fed up with this. Yeah, so that that's why I like to go to the place more cosy maybe the supermarket off, you know so much it's magic. So when you order Seafood actually they will put it in a bag and they were handled back on the track. So it's like an automatic system. You can receive your goods. It's really funny. Stephen Demond, the events Company CEO from episode 19 I'd like to give a shout out to shake shake is by far my favorite live music venue in Asia. They on Marmion roads beautiful place for dinner drinks and some dancing and trust me. I've been to quite a lot. So go to shake fantastic. And again my favorite all over Asia off for an advance and the Mantra compliance leader from episode 15. So the best place to hang it on is always the one and once you go home and take a walk in the evening. I think you really can't stop it my ring the other side how it has been created and the phenomenal fact is that it has been done in the past twenty years. Sanford-Brown the biochemist from episode 29 So there's some downsides to to the pace of change that happens. So I would say a lot of the favorite places that I had no longer exists my favorite bouncer shop. My favorite game show up some older streets that I would love to work in that really felt like you were an older China. Unfortunately. Those are really exist anymore in Shanghai I used to do when people came in dead Shanghai for the first time. I used to take my side car and go out to the countryside where you see farmers and everything and then take them down to the Bund and you saw that all within one day and so it was complete contrast of that. So that's a that's a little bit there. So there but then flip side you always have new Fantastic places the new restaurant that I like is a higher wage in the Edition Hotel. Cuz what I like about is a food's very good there the qualities there but the view so they have a bar upstairs and you have a rooftop and of course, yep. Has lots of rooftop bars, but what was interesting I like this one. It's a different View at least what I had seen before cuz you're further back and you have a different perspective on the city that I had never seen before even though I've seen it a million times and honestly, I think Shanghai is the most beautiful city at night in the world. Philippe gas the Disney Resorts CEO from episode one. I recently discovered a very good Cantonese restaurant in a hotel called Edition hotel is right off the band. It's called Kent and disco. If you have not been there recommend you try it. It's great food truck environments. I love this place. I have many Hangouts places where I go to live in the center. So some Mexican food that I love enjoy and many of my friends who like to hang out there. But this one I recommend to try Architectural the fashion designer from episode 13 the best restaurant. I really like is is called high lie, which is on the 6th floor of Escalade and best drinks is sober company, which is the 50 best bar in Asia and it's open by a Japanese poem Eric olander the journalists from episode 3 The Perfect answer for this and the cliche answer would be some Corner dive in the French concession that serves the best dumplings that you've ever heard of Faith. Nobody else knows in their secret spot that the only this one Foreigner seems to know I won't give you that answer because to be honest with you, you know eating Eastern Chinese food. So that is Shanghai Chinese food actual not my favorite. I gotta be honest with you. It's greasy. It's there's I don't like the MSG and it's very salty. I prefer like Southern Chinese food Hunan. So I actually like the French bistros in the western food here in the French Canadian. And I don't have a particular favorite. I mean do. Listen. I'm a big walk as fan. That's not a I mean that's a very kind of Main Street pedestrian answer but they do a good thing to a good service. You know what I'm going to say, but I don't actually have a favorite dive or corner or hole in the wall in Shanghai. It's Anthea Taylor the pain expert from episode 28. So my favorite place is a cafe. It's on a loop. It's called on air and it's sort of in the tucked away in the back of a long Lane, but you won't know it's there you have to you know, someone told has to take you Lexie Comstock the cookie supplier from episode 28, my friend Adam had this amazing apartment right on the corner of fishing and Lucci and he made a New Year's resolution one year to throw a theme party every month and he just nailed it and thought was super open like, you know, you could bring anyone and there were various themes like, you know, Chinese New Year 80s prom all the stuff and people would dress up and so that was like, you know party side that was really fun to go out and but also offer a great balcony so, you know kind of Sunday afternoons lounging on the Belt that was pretty ideal GT Chang the translated from episode 24 Wow might go to restaurants if friends come to town in Shanghai would be spicy moment on William Louis a Hunan Restaurant. I particularly like it because it's very difficult to get good Cantonese food here good in the sense that Cantonese food is not just about ingredients or taste flavorings, but you have took everything on a very very very Hot Wok. And that is this particular taste like you can't really describe it is not like a flavor salty or sweet. But if I something on a very Hot Wok, it tastes different from the non Hot Wok. And is it also a walk that's been tried before and has some residual taste from a no. No. No, it is not like a flash either type taste but that is something it's like cooking something on wood on cold or on gas or on electric. They taste different and I love that restaurant because wage Even though Kahuna food tastes very different from Cantonese food, but that taste of fire is in it. And with that we've reached the end of another compilation and I love that last comment. I've been going to that restaurant that GG mentioned and she's totally right about the taste of fire. Next week will be the final cancellation. It's all about favorite words and phrases in Mandarin. Definitely a fun and useful one and this time not just for fans of Shanghai. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, too. Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Again. Thank you so much. Thank you. My pleasure to thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

"Michael V. The Instagram influencer from episode 7. I will one of my new favorites is Heritage by Madison, which is a lovely new restaurant down at the bulb Financial Center. Next lovely Thomas heatherwick building that moves and it's excellent. You know, it's a western casual fine dining with lots of Chinese influences would be nice wine list really inexpensive stunning setting world-class service nailed it yummy the broadcaster from episode 21 I think usually a friend will recommend some restaurant or coffee shop and they were bring me there and at that time I will give a score. So this restaurant is good, but it doesn't means I will come back or it doesn't mean it is my favorite because I think if you if seen the places is is your favorite. You will go through all the times right? So if you have to say the places, I usually go a small noodle restaurants near my house. I work go there every day, but this is my home. I don't think so. Maplesville the comedian from Episode II. Okay. There was a Japanese restaurant. I really really like because the design is from Japan there. He's very good. So you sitting there you look at the window you can see the area you are in you can see the lobby you can see the outside of view. It's like you starting from here one part. You can just see the word you're connecting. It's so beautiful and peaceful Life by trying to restaurant Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. Oh, where's my favorite place? I tend to be lazy with it really kind of funky Delhi area just cuz it's five minutes walk from home. There's always people there. I love Hot Pot. So any any good Hot Pot restaurant The Spicy one is the best. Yeah. I love that. So yeah I float around. Mgu the jewelry Craftsman from episode 18. I really like Malabar because of the Spanish environment. The food is really good and it's not over price range really good portion. It's not like really tiny Tapas. So I would take you the next I Astrid focus on the violinist from episode four, I think one of my favorite places for food is citron citizen restaurant down and it's been I think the first Chinese restaurant I've ever even tried and Shanghai because back then they used to be a toll road and Shanghai Conservatory of Music was beside and I've been going there since like ten years old ready and the people they have been over ten years and I spend like five to six my birthday is there with them so it's just very very stupid like first place to go and take my friends whoever is visiting here. Noah Sheldon the documentary filmmaker from episode 9 there's a restaurant. I love the name in Chinese English name is in and out. It's a horrible position. No, no in and out. It's a you Nam restaurant. Oh, right. It's in who Bendel but it's so excellent. It's no it's on the third floor. You know it exactly I think the food there is so great, but don't have a lot of alcohol. So that's that's kind of a problem Sebastian is the inclusion wage it from episode 11. All right, so it's going to sound are it's in the it's a restaurant in the Florencia Village. So for entire Village is an outlet close to the airport. So that's not so fancy nor glamour. Let's put it that way but they have a very good restaurant. Very good Italian restaurant called Bella Vita. We know the Chef Stephan. I personally am and it's a little bit like every week every Sunday we go back to Italy nothing fancy. Nothing Fusion just traditional Italian cuisine where you can find a little bit of home and you know spend good family time and that's because your wife is Italian, right? Yeah. Viva the fitness Community leader from episode 8 Blackbird actually. Oh, yeah, so and I only just recently discovered Columbus Circle actually, but the you know, it's like the perfect mix of everything you've got great food on the lower floor. You've got great cocktails in the middle and then you've got this gorgeous terrorists where they, you know, they play movies and everything, but you know, it's a shame that it's probably not a Columbia Circle hasn't actually taken off as yet but yet but I'm really like in black bird. Nene some the artist from episode 16 actually my friend's studio. So I have several authors friends. They all have studios around off my Studios area. On tongue and I go in there see what they're making recently and also sometimes invite people here to my studio having a beer right? That's funny. I never really far away from art. Even when you're hanging out you're hanging out around like it's terrible. What's Coleman the theater producer from episode 22 off. I think one of my favorite venues in the entire world. Nevermind Shanghai has to be all on Jiang bellew. I think if guys has done there is absolutely astounding the sound system is unparalleled whenever I get there. It's the same story every time I'm like do this put your bags and coats here. Let's get drink right now, Now we're going to do a dance and then I'm like a four-year-old. like listen. Can you hear me talking? You can hear talking but you can feel the bass right? You can hear me talking but you can feel her face is like my friends laugh at me cuz they're like, I know we've done this before you've literally show me five times. I can't believe how good the sound isn't here and what I love is that any new music that's happening in their people will say oh but I don't think I like trap music. I don't like footwork. I don't think into industrial techno, but they go in there. They're here that as soon you in front of DJ your dancing straight away because always high quality programming. Generally The Invention Company CEO from episode six. IBM is shopping mall facing in downtown Shanghai. I think from the third fourth floor. There's a certain different bars or a coffee shop has terrorists and then also they has like supermarket and movie theaters. So I just like to put myself in somewhere else in the crowd, but still a little bit quiet and has multi-function. Abe de the tour manager from episode 27 probably R&B just cuz that's you know, where a lot of my friends go. It's a record shop right slash bottle shop. So, I guess just worked out with R&B stands for yeah,.

"Felipa gas. The Disney Resorts CEO from episode one the best purchaser made these like little more than a year ago. I bought a scooter and Neil scooter. I don't want to make advertisement but this is amazingly wonderful. It changed my life in Shanghai on weekends and the freedom that you have time to get on it and just you know, go around the French concession to explore the place. I've been biking a lot before that. This is just great and I love my little bite. I'm going to miss it when I leave. View the fitness Community leader from episode 8 probably my most expensive and best is probably my scooter. Actually, I you know, I can't I can't Shanghai without it. Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. So I'm addicted to taobao. You're not the first person who said that but the best purchase is definitely my situation. I love my scooter worst purchase probably some fake red wine. I bought from a shop once clearly in the wrong bottle wage. Really. Oh really? That's interesting. So it does happen cuz I hear that has a kind of apocryphal tale. It definitely happens. You're right Maples long median from episode 200. I bought the worst one I bought is a printer cuz I thought I'm going to write more more in a printed out by doing use off. So it's just over I want to cook but I do show the same impassive buying always do that should stop it. Simon manetti the business leader from episode 17 m m apart from the lamp. That's the best my bicycle. Yeah, Greg Nance the ultra-marathon athlete from episode 23 the let me go to the worst cuz this is more top of mind my first trip to China Beijing into his nine and I got a wonderful Mal watch and it's like, you know, the chairman Mao with his two hands his two arms is like the second minute clock and I haggled it down to something like twenty R&B which was pretty good deal cuz it started out like two hundred and by the time I had gotten on the airplane to fly home some eight hours later the watch it stopped working and I was like, oh my gosh total swindling hair my sister still love the gift. So it may not have actually been the worst but that comes to mind for sure make you the playwright from episode 13 dead. I think is that is one piece. I think I forget is that is almost ten years ago in Hong Kong. I bought one teacher that has so comfortable. So I every day almost I would change this one and as usual as one and this one be back in the second day. Sabrina join the dance program curator from episode 26. I've been mostly we only purchase Goods on. How about now? However, I moved to new place. Hey, I have to find out what I need for the new place. It's better to see it in person. And I found this place it's need 30 and it's Japanese style song and convenient. I bought plays pots the slippers. Yeah. Stefan Des Moines, the events Company CEO from episode nineteen. I couldn't really think about anything when when you asked me that question simply because I think I'm a young person so you could have asked me okay with the best and the worst relationships that you formed here, but can't really comment on objects cuz it's not really who I am. Okay, I guess we'll take that as a known for this time. As long as the worst person you've met is not me. Thanks for downloading. I hope you've been enjoying these extra shows. As always. I've posted some photos to illustrate some of these answers. So please check out Mosaic of China on in Iraq or Facebook or to join a WeChat listeners group PLS add me there on my ID Oscar 10877 in case you didn't listen to the wrap-up episode at the end of season one reason. I thought to put these compilations together in the first place was to kill time before the start of season to the idea being to allow guests to get back to their normal routines in China before we met up for our chat Bots. Well, the idea is half working. I recorded four episodes of the new season so far and I have more on their way, but I had hoped that by now there might have been a chance for the borders to reopen thought some of the guests who are stuck overseas might be able to return home to China. It doesn't look like that's going to happen. So now we're already into the second half of these compilations. I need to actually start my job. Some decisions. Hopefully I will have made some of those by the time we're back for the next compilation episode in two weeks, which will be on the topic of China news sources. So I'll see you then, Thank you very much. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you, too. you very much. Thank you. Thank you. Again. Thank you so much. Thank you. My pleasure to thank you very much.

"Welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar Felix. We're halfway through these ten special compilation episodes from the guests of season one of the show and I hope that by now you've gotten used to all of their voices. With any luck, you might have also been persuaded to go back and take a listen to some of the episodes that you may have missed before. If not, let me try yet again to convince you the theme of today's episode is worse and worst purchases that have been made in China. I could say that these arms has paint a picture of China's shopping culture and specifically it's Unique e-commerce ecosystem. But actually I think it's more about just being nosy about what stuff people have got Michael Z the Instagram influencer from episode 7. Best purchase is a beautiful chair from taobao and Tower is amazing online platform. For those of you who don't know Chinese e-commerce. You have a direct link with a factory or the vendor or the individual selling. It doesn't come from like Amazon as such so you can have this conversation with someone. I want to buy sofa. But you can just click the color you want. They send you the Swatch and can have this long conversation. I actually can I have a 10 centimeters longer. Can I have a little bit deeper? Can I have it in blue? And also can I have it this Fabric and so you can really have this conversation and we had this chair made which is admittedly a knock off of Faneuil is a very famous Scandinavia designer and the original chair something like ten thousand to fourteen thousand Euros and we had a knockoff commissioned in baby pink beautiful soft everything leather for five hundred pounds. Octo Joan the fashion designer from episode 13 is Turbo, right? But what about the actual thing you bought like do you remember it? Was there a really good thing or a really bad choice? You can from anything in there. Even you applying the Visa. I think so Miracle because you want to apply visa like them or something where you can just send your passport copy and then they sent you a real actual paper directly to your home. Wow. Astrid poke on the violinist from episode for the best purchase I've ever made so far it's I don't know whether you have seen is like off automatic wine bottle opener machine. Do you have seen that they have that I think I've so in China and it surprises me so much and after every time I just like just look so cool. I just put in and show it was Coleman the theater producer from episode 22. I think the best revelation of God how to purchase things has been the fabric market and we have this thing in the company with all the performers which is fabric market finery. And if you're having a house party or this month's rent four people, then you might say where your best fabric Market finery as if the event itself was somehow Black Tie, so I went and got a dress made and it's bright orange and it took Just soaked and it's down to the floor and it's a copy of address that obj gave me and it's like the size of a parachute and it's impossible to ride a bike in and I love it. It's unfair Taylor the paint expert from episode 28. The luxury of the fabric markets means I get to go and have awful things made on impulse. I mean when when you go and you just when go you look at something on a model or you look at a picture and you think wow, I can have that made in my size. You really appreciate why fashion and fashion model a certain size and shapes because wow when you get the proportions different like goodness, that wasn't good. It's so funny. I went through a phase where used to get a lot of things Taylor dead and a lot of mistakes happened and now I've gone back to buying off-the-rack a lot more because in you know what you're getting and you know what the patterns will look like on your body, etc. Etc. I find if found one thing that fits somewhere else I bring it back and then I get it made exactly the same right in 10 different colors. Right? Right. So that's my hack around that dead. Sanford-Brown the biochemist from episode 29 probably worse purchase I made is you know, cuz China you can get some custom made things right off relatively inexpensive and I got a pair of custom-made shoes and it was like cartoon. They were more than four or five sizes too small. There was literally I could not put half my foot in and we had arguments that they made them and I had to pay for them and they were fine and there was like fine for whom because it's like it actually has to be able to fit in my phone. AB deya the tour manager from episode 27 one of the best purchases. They guess was custom-made bed. We had put in a apartment or our old apartment the one below yours that would probably be one of the best purchases mainly because we got a design it and it served us very very well Found You The Jewelry Craftsman from episode 18. I have to say the best. It's amazing. You know, how humid is Shanghai right so I bought this Michelle Discovery. The accident on table. It's actually a Broward the connect to a blanket like a double layer blanket with holes on it. So will you bro for 1 hour? You put this prank it between your your bed and your mattress off your to bed and four if you pray for one hour you eliminate all the humidity and that's might because I'm allergic to all kind of might so the bed we become off. Feel like a try so the comforter so I've been using the for last eight years. It's really cool. Every once you had that in Shanghai off Sebastian s the inclusion Advocate from episode 11. The best purchase is actually a xiaomi vacuum robot with it's so heavy. We don't have an ID. So it does a lot of work for us in our big apartment and it's just working. It's really nice. It's clean the house every day. Eric olander the journalist from episode 3 a Roomba. Oh, you've got one. I got one.

"When you talk about Shanghai recycling regime that they're introducing if you have a durian it is not food waste because of home. I assume because during is disgusting. Welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar Fuchs. Okay, this is already the fourth special compilation episode from season one off. So, I hope I now you get the deal for this compilation. We're looking at how all the guests from the season answered the question. What is your favorite china-related fact the idea of asking this question is to provide you with the ammunition to impress people when your next at a polite Gathering and the topic of China comes up, so get ready to take notes and with just a bit of practice. You could one day be as much of a pretentious no oil as long GT Chang the translator from episode 24 some years ago. I discovered that Norco word wrote private life in Shanghai at the cafe hotel which is the peace hotel and I think he got a cold or like influenza and he got stuck it just this sort of utterly utterly is a very English, you know the cost play Richard Shanghai in 1930. Michael V. The Instagram influencer from episode 7 me how doesn't mean Hello. I think this is the interesting about translation is that we kind of always want to have equal equivalents of words. This word. My language means this word in your language. And Niihau Niihau is you good literally you good and it's implied. There's a question when Hello is I'm here, but I'm not asking for your recognition. Hello in the sense of you can just say hello to an empty room, but you would never say Neha Jan empty room off. Bebu the fitness Community leader from episode 8 everybody knows the four Great Inventions, which was Gunpowder the compass paper and printing but no one knows that they also invented the fishing reel the wheelbarrow cuts and umbrella and the umbrella. Yeah amazing really but it rains so much in Europe. What the hell are they doing wrong? Sebastian is the inclusion Advocate from episode 11. It's a very simple one is 1.4 billion people. I love this numbers because it's a mirage illusion of capturing this one point four billion people market right having spent seven years here in China. I've seen so many companies with that in mind coming back to think you're going to conquer this Market. Emily match the aquarium conservationists from episode 14 one in every five people in the world is Chinese. Is it one in five? Wow factor in at all in China. This is the whole diaspora included. Yes, Nick you the playwright from episode 13 traditional management home Village. I think that's some like like a dream before that is a really good. I can give you an example. My father is a teacher in the country in the village. But before he don't have the salary, but who will pay him and the The Village they will give a field a field. Yeah, and they fear will be free to him and all the people in the village were only paid a salary for him. But this field you can plant and when you have gained you can give birth. Food so actually then they would they would Farm the field and whatever they made in that field. They would give to your father. Yeah. Greg Nance the ultra-marathon athlete from episode 23. My favorite china-related fact, is that the huangpu river the river that flows through Shanghai here was actually be excavated and dredged to be created around 2500 years ago during the Warring States period it starts around song Joong which is like far Southwest Shanghai. It's a district tap it winds its way merrily over the Bund blue dots way onto the youngster river which drains into the East China Sea. Okay. Okay lucija the March 4th right from episode five six hundred and seventy-five million active gamers in China. Wow. I don't know. What is the population of Europe think it's less than that. So imagine more than the population of Europe playing games every day of their life. So for me, that's like wow dead. Eric olander the journalists from episode 3. They created this anti Valentine's Day. So it was it single day. And so they picked November eleventh cuz it's you know represents single people and Ali Baba the world's largest e-commerce company started just discounting products and they created this phenomenal type of of culture around selling. And so everybody all the brands line a whole country becomes like a national holiday. So basically take Black Friday Black Monday Cyber Monday all of those kind of sales and put it on, you know on steroids and this is compacted to just one twenty four hour. They're selling more in volume than all of the Christmas holiday shopping season the United States. It's remarkable 24 billion, and it just keeps going up every year. Loreley the private club GM from episode 10. I like the stone inscription in the tourist site because every Dynasty the people see the same view same Mountain same link, but they have different feeling so all of them, they they put their name on The Stone.

"Anything. It's just it's such a fast-moving place and it's incredible like the paste Sanford grounded biochemist from episode 29. Oh, well, I would say if ever I'm at a point where it doesn't surprise me, then I'd be shocked. I think every time you see things again. It relates to the pace of change and change things change so fast how people adopt to the change just you always see these changes I think for me, this is every time when you look on the streets, I'm surprised by something off Maples War the comedian from Episode II, I feel like because China is very big has loads of people and Thursday because we have one big party to ruin the country and once they there is a decision it's goes down so quickly like the technology a li pay and everything how about it's amazed me even though I'm using it off. I feel like can't get rid of my phone and it's saving me so much time. I want everything just like click click you go to England you need to do cash and everything right now. You can just scan everything. It's amazing, but then off Because the technology because we have 5G now, right everything is going so fast. I was wondering all this time you saved. What do you use? You know, that makes me think cuz usually people track, you know days and days to get there and now just click. Okay, but what you're going to do is the time you got there. A lot of people just standing on the train just like going on moments or still small funny videos off to do something more cuz we saving so much other time right Michael Z the Instagram influencer from episode 7. I think that the biggest surprise now is just how much ahead of the Western World China is and this is a something that everyone comes to visit me that they were so shocked they oh old communist China has like better apps better taxi services better all these things and you know, it's so easy just click your fingers and you get something off loreley the private club GM from episode 10 every day.

"Easy to stick your fingers you get something welcome to Mosaic of China a podcast about people who are making their Mark in China. I'm your host Oscar folks home in our third special compilation episode from season one. We listen to how my guests all answered the question. Is there anything that still mystifies or surprises you about life in modern China off and I really enjoyed asking this question because it elicited a kind of wonder in people's responses and that's not just confined to outside as living in China. It applies just as universally to those who have lived decades and of course even with the Chinese themselves, To follow along with the visuals that accompany today's episode. Please go to Mosaic of China on Instagram or Facebook, or you can add me on WeChat my account Oscar 10877 and I'll add you to the listeners group there. I've posted my own surprising addition there which was something that just took place last week. Eric olander the journalists from episode 3 every single day. I mean this place is the complexity of it never ever cease to amaze me and there's this great chart actually that was circulating on social media. It shows aged versus time being here. So the people who have been here for one year all want to write the book on China and not the longer you go here the amount of time you spend here the less you actually know so the X Y axis and it just keeps going down down down down and I am extraordinary humble about what I know and don't know. I have a graduate degree in Chinese foreign policy. I've spent thirty years here. I've been studying Chinese. I think I know a little bit compared to westerners and other Outsiders. And by the way, the Chinese themselves are not very well educated about their own country. A lot of the people who are raised in the cities. Don't know much about the countryside Same by the way in my own country as well. It's too big for any one person. Really grasp. And so I mean nobody can really understand it. There is no such thing in my view as a China expert. Emily manage the aquarium conservationists from episode 14. Oh everything everything mystifies me. I think every day there's something that fascinates me. I still I still can't get my head around any of it, but it's it's fabulous. Simonetta the business leader from episode 17. Everything should mystify about life in China, you know, they're guys are here or like six months to a year and they know everything about China, you know, and then and then you here for like two or three years onwards and suddenly things are confusing Five Years on you got no idea what's going on at any one point in time off. Sebastian the Nez inclusion Advocate from episode 11 almost everyday Travis something that is. Oh I didn't think this would be possible. One of the the latest one was I was running around the city and and I actually found a bike symmetry. You noticed those off sharing bikes. They go somewhere to die. And this place is like five football fields. It's the other side of the sharing economy is what do you do with this? It's also for me pictures a lot of how Innovation goes in China, which is Let's Do It Go for with forward with it then sought to regulate and then eventually effects the issues that are going to happen. Whereas in Europe or Western countries. It's a little bit that's not do it because we have this and that and that reason right so it's more finding reason not to do it here in China it's more going forward. This is why I think the country goes also very fast in that in that area. Tum, pakka the Diplomat from episode 25 everything about life in China surprised me. I spent every day constantly made there isn't at least five things which seemed freaked me out. Then I'm probably not leading my bedroom and Roscommon the theater producer from episode 22 everything. I mean, think if there's something that surprises me, it's the I still have capacity to be surprised. You know, like, how am I surprised when this is like, this is my everyday, you know, every new thing that I learn and every new Quirk of foul language my friend Jean taught me this lovely one the other day. It was something about how if people tell you that they met watching the football then it means that they met when were in prison. All right, how do you even find something like that out? Like that's actually a thing. Is it seemingly? Yeah. Okay lucija the marketer for sprite from home. Said 5 it's about what we discussed before it's about the differences versus nuances, but the nuances make big difference and and it's the way that they're mine are. Every time. I trying to think that the logical that they're using to respond to a certain stimuli and and in in its read me the most money each time. You learn a new insight. It's a new surprise. Definitely GT Chang the translator from episode 24 people can really spend home shop.

So so quickly and that is just I think so unique to China at this very moment and anything from food safety laws to traffic laws to construction to.
