Pablo Picasso once said: “Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction.”

So for China’s aggressive expansion and development of infrastructure, there is also a great deal of destruction. I just never expected even new buildings would be destroyed…

The following are extracts from China Hush :

As one of the most architectural productive country, China aggregates 2 billion m2 of new building area every year, consuming about 40% of the world’s concrete and steel. However, on the flip side of the new building fever, there lie the rubble and remains of other “older” buildings: people tear down four-star hotels to build five-star ones and bulldoze newly developed construction sites before they are even finished.

Vienna Wood Community in Hefei City(合肥维也纳森林花园小区), died before born on Dec. 10th, 2005. The community covered about 20,000 m2 construction area with the main structure raised to 58.5 m high. The tens of millions yuan worth building was blasted as a whole when its 16th floor was still under progress. According to local government, the community punctuated the central divide of Hefei City, blocking the scenery between Huangshan Road and Dashushan Mountain. They couldn’t straighten Huangshan Road unless the community was out of the way.

I love the animated news, especially the ones from Taiwan – they are so perverted…

The post 90s generation of China is a weird bunch. The general media and the general public call them the “brain dead generation”. The extreme growth of China’s cities has also lead to an extreme change in the culture of the younger generation. Conflicting between their cultural heritage and the pop culture of the outside world, these youngsters experiment with their looks and appearances. This form has developed over the years into its own form – a very grotesque permutation of various cultures in one hideous abomination.

WARNING!!! Do not proceed if you do not want your eyes to bleed.

Fuck Vegetables

So you’re strolling through a Chinese supermarket and your see this sign…

There are plenty of funny Chinese-English translations in China but this is got to be the most direct and explicit one.

For those who do not understand Chinese, “干菜” means dried vegetables and the last word “类” means type. So as a whole, it should be the dried vegetables section.

Since the escalation in tension between China and Japan over the Diaoyu Islands, there have been strong conflicting views depending on nationality. It seems to me that we are still far from settling cultural differences and that there is still far too much rubbish, fed by mainstream media and the education system, burying facts.

However, Taiwan’s NextMedia has a hilarious yet pretty honest take on the whole situation…

Their conclusion: How much longer can two economically interrelated countries continue this struggle? (As the ninja tries to kill the panda with a firework made in China)

A woman in Taiwan was caught cheating with a co-worker by her husband. The suspicious husband planted a recorder in her car.

This is made very entertaining when animated…

I am surprised to find out that you can go to jail for cheating in Taiwan.

A 24-year-old boy named Liu Hang who became deeply attracted to a girl he saw on a TV show, decided to express his love during her visit to a department store.

Outside the Changsha Wangfujing Department Store, was a giant heart made of 9999 roses, and standing in front was Liu Hang. He held roses and a diamond ring, shouting out “Lie Ying” – the name of his love.
Liu Hang spent over RMB 30,000.

However, Liu’s action did not immediately win Lie Ying over. Lie chose to leave in silence, but left her cell phone number with Liu Hang. At noon, Liu Hang still stood in front the department store, feeling kind of down. “I will not give up, I will think of ways to pursue, I will give up everything to live an ordinary life with her.”

That sounds like a stalker…

In his “Manufactured Totems” series Alain Delorme, captures the portrait of the insignificant jobs present in everyday life in Shanghai. Even though the Chinese society usually fascinates by its delusions of grandeur, he chooses to focus on the individuals buzzing about the city.


Men and women perched on their bikes cross the images as they go all over town, without ever settling in. They are migrants coming from all over China, the heart of the new “world factory”.
