Editor's Note It’s been another gluttonous year at That’s PRD. Sometimes it seems like all we do is eat, gorge, devour, masticate, nosh or just inhale everything, from pizza and curries to foie gras and entrecote. If the grand dame of gastronomy Julia Child was right and people who love to eat are always the best people, then we surely rank among the most wonderful folks in the south – excepting, of course, those glorious chefs and restaurateurs that feed our food frenzy. Those kings among men are celebrated in this issue with a rundown of all the winners from the That’s PRD Food and Drink Awards, the region’s premier event for those who absolutely adore stuffing their faces. Whether it’s French, Japanese, Italian or Indian, the denizens of Guangzhou and Shenzhen have spoken and crowned their favorites. And let’s not forget the drinking part – heaven forbid! Clubs, bars and breweries have all been included in our expansive list of the best places to go for a rowdy night out or a calming glass of vino. Turn to p36 to see who picked up accolades this year! The end of the year is a time to reflect (or so I’m told). To help the PRD’s residents round up the year that was, we have compiled all the heroes, villains, fashion trends and faux pas, obligatory food scandals and artistic achievements of 2014 (p12). Instead of having to relate all the wonders and horrors you have lived through in China in the past 12 months over roast turkey

and Christmas pudding, just chuck a magazine at your family and friends and let them pore away to their hearts’ content. In our experience, it saves a lot of time repeating the same stories to every curious soul back home again… and again… and again… Speaking of being homeward bound, now is the perfect time for women to pick up that must-have Chinese outfit: the qipao. Don’t know what styles and cuts suit you? Flick over to p22 where we have a rundown of the essential aspects of the iconic dress to help you out. With the Year of the Goat looming, it’s time to assess where you want to go in 2015. Now is the moment to seize the day and thoroughly chew over the future, chomping down on the toughto-swallow past and savoring on the palate the juicy morsels to come – now I think of it, this brings us back to food, the ultimate metaphor for life. In the words of Mark Twain, "The secret of success in life is to eat what you like and let the food fight it out inside.” That’s certainly been our approach here at the magazine. Of course, those who are at all health conscious might want to digest our fitness column from K2Fit’s Kara Wutzke (p20). I, on the other hand, will be leaving all those concerns about jiggly bits till after Christmas… and New Year… and maybe Spring Festival… Tom Lee Editor in Chief

Thank you to all our cover stars this month who gamely donated their time and looked thoroughly worthy of the debaucherous Roaring 20s. (Come to think of it, some of them seemed right at home glugging champagne and puffing on cigars while dressed to thrill.) Our gratitude also to Angel Yuang and JC Chong from Makeover Studio for providing hair, makeup and accessory services, and to Michael Shao of V Plus for giving us a place to shoot our models. We mustn’t forget to credit the two members of our in-house team that brought the Great Gatsby concept so vividly to life: photographer Claire Zheng and senior designer Tawaka Jiang. December 2014 /

tales of the city Food fight

Passing the ball The Chinese Super League managerial merry-go-round took another turn last month, with former Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro set to replace Guangzhou Evergrande's Marcello Lippi, the coach he won the World Cup under in 2006. The 66-year-old Lippi, who led Guangzhou Evergrande to Asian Champions League glory in 2013, announced on November 2 that he would be stepping aside to become the team’s chief technical officer. “It is my last match as head coach for the club,” he said, as Guangzhou clinched its fourth successive CSL title. Cannavaro, meanwhile, is currently being investigated by authorities in his home city of Naples on suspicion of illegally sidestepping one million Euros in taxes. The 41-year-old had a glittering career at Parma, Juventus and Real Madrid and won the world player of the year award in 2006.

New Town built on bribes?

Cash out

Unlike most corrupt officials who have landed behind bars, Cao Jianliao does not seem to have had much ambition as far as political power goes. Instead, he only had money on the mind, according to Xinhua news agency. The former deputy mayor of Guangzhou was removed from office in July and is suspected of taking nearly RMB300 million in bribes, largely related to the construction and development of Zhujiang Xincheng. Cao is reported to have refused promotion several times, because he thought he could get more red envelopes in a lower position. Once, he is even said to have asked his subordinates to write to higher officials, asking them to allow Cao to retain the township leadership when he was being considered for a bump up to the district level.

Official figures have revealed that gambling revenues in Macau plunged by 23 percent in October – to a paltry 28.025 billion patacas (USD3.51 billion) – when compared with the same month last year. It is the highest decline since such data became available in 2005, with analysts ascribing it to the corruption crackdown. President Xi Jinping has warned graft could destroy the Communist Party of China, and vowed to crack down on highranking officials, described as “tigers,” along with low-level “flies,” in a campaign which includes restricting lavish expenditure. That means reining in high rollers of dubious morals, with dodgy officials no longer free to head down to the world’s biggest gaming center to launder money and generally live it up. And here we were thinking denying them their Louis Vuitton was draconian enough...


December 2014 /

Three thousand students enrolled at the Guangdong Economics and Trade Vocational College launched a protest at the beginning of November, assailing their school’s canteen over food prices. The disruption reportedly started at around 10pm and lasted for four hours, with students throwing trash from dorm buildings and subsequently breaking into the cafeteria. “Some students broke the windows, some even lit books on fire before throwing them downstairs, which set a tree on fire,” a witness, surnamed Zhou, recalled. “But they quickly poured water downstairs to put out the fire.” According to some students, the protest was started because the canteen charged more for food than the prices listed. On top of the food prices being high, the quality has also long been questioned. Students showed reporters photos of worms and hair in their lunches. Is anybody else being reminded of The Twits?

99 problems but an iPhone ain’t one People do extravagant things around China’s Singles' Day on November 11, but one Guangzhou man’s attempt to win his lady love was so extreme it set tongues ablaze online. Photographs of the gentleman at the center of the fiasco show him goading his intended into a heartshaped ring of 99 16GB iPhone 6 boxes and professing his love with a bouquet of fresh roses in hand. The response? A lukewarm: "Um... You're putting a lot of pressure on me.” Alas, it looks like this proposal, worth nearly RMB600,000, was a flop of mega proportions. We suspect the hapless would-be Romeo was forced to celebrate this year’s Singles' Day without his Juliet.

The buzz




Corpse quota

17 years That’s the amount of time an American couple spent raising their adopted son as Chinese, so as to be in touch with his roots. They sent him to Mandarin language school, frequently took him out to cultural events and brought him to China several times as a child. But when filling out college application forms, the parents finally looked into his birth parents’ backgrounds. Their last names? Park and Kim. “My son is not Chinese. Not even a little bit. He’s Korean,” the father posted online, along with the entire story. When the father came clean to his son and wife, he said the son was “confused, [but] glad to know Mandarin.”


“APEC Blue.”

With factories shut, traffic restricted, restaurants closed and fires banned throughout Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei and Shandong, authorities gifted delegates to last month’s APEC summit – along with the remaining Beijingers in the city – with crystalline blue skies, a shade that became known as ‘APEC Blue.’ Internet commenters also gave ‘APEC Blue’ another, more cynical meaning: a fleeting, insincere and ultimately unreal kind of beauty or affection. For example, “He’s not really into you, it’s just an APEC Blue!”

Two Guangdong officials are facing charges after they were caught buying dead bodies on the black market in order to reach their local corpse quota, which is apparently a thing. In an attempt to save valuable land, officials had been told to discourage the burying of bodies and to encourage cremation. These two were struggling to meet the required number of cremations for their area and decided, of course, to buy bodies from a grave robber. Their entire scheme came unraveled when the robber was caught in the act by local police, and proceeded to tell authorities about his customers. We hope his list of clients wasn’t very long. / December 2014


Forever Young

Three Decades of Luxury at The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel


ew five-star hotels in Guangzhou can boast the same sense of history as The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel. When it opened in 1984, it was arguably the most luxurious place to stay in the city; the spot where well-to-do international businessmen and the local elite would reside when visiting South China’s unofficial capital. Thirteen years later, it was snapped up by Marriott Hotels and Resorts to become the first property on the Chinese mainland managed by the international hotelier group. Much about the city has changed since those days, but The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel has managed to maintain an aura of prestige and energy, balancing historical significance and mod-

ern style. Located in the heart of Guangzhou’s genuine city center, it’s a world away from the steely impersonality of Zhujiang Xincheng, despite the fact that these two areas are separated by just a 15-minute cab ride. In the streets surrounding the hotel, one can still drift through charming Chinese neighborhoods and breathe in bustling local life. Even today, there are few places in the district that offer the same level of comfort. “In this neighborhood, we are the only shining star,” says General Manager Arics Lam, who has been running things at The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel for three years. Under his guidance, the hotel has been ambitiously injecting its seasonal

events with fresh verve. This year’s MidAutumn Festival, for instance, saw the hotel rolling out a tasty range of moon cakes endorsed by Chinese celebrities, bringing contemporary glamour to age-old tradition. Just over a month ago, the hotel held its 10th Oktoberfest, a pivotal event on the Guangzhou social calendar that conjures up a beer tent filled with all-you-can-eat German fare, a Bavarian band and – of course – many steins of freshly brewed


‘Weißbier.’ Establishing bridges with those living in the city is a central concern of The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel, both in terms of parties and outreach programs. “We have a responsibility to serve the community,” notes Mr. Lam. Last year alone his staff participated in more than 12 charitable events, clocking up more than 2,000 hours of donated time – not to mention the resources given over to the efforts. Both old and young have benefitted from the hotel’s social conscience, with initiatives including dumpling making at a home for the elderly and a sport day for children with special needs. Beyond these carefully planned approaches to building local ties, The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel also owes much of its following amongst Chinese and expats alike to its food. In earlier times, it was a special treat for locals to enjoy a meal at one of the hotel’s two Chinese restaurants, a tradition that many continue today. Cantonese cuisine is famed throughout the world and a point of pride with Guangdong people, so it’s hardly surprising that food is a social lubricant to those who live in the province. At the Four Seasons restaurant, classic dishes are served up in a tasteful, elegant environment with delicately integrated Chinese elements. The menu features the bread and butter of local specialties, such as delicious roasted meats (known as ‘char siu’ in local parlance), as well as nationwide luxury dishes like abalone, bird’s nest soup and sea cucumber. Naturally, there is also a wide range of dim sum, from pork

and shrimp dumplings to cotton chicken. If you want to sample dim sum in a more traditional but casual style setting, however, Food Street is the place to go. Dishing up steaming baskets of har gow and siu mai, the restaurant exudes Lingnan culture and design. Different areas of the ‘street’ serve everything from congee and noodles to fresh fish, which can be selected from aquatic tanks. Behind transparent glass, guests can view almost every delicacy being cooked by the experienced chefs, some of whom have been with The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel for almost 20 years. Not limiting itself to Chinese cuisine, the hotel also boasts a sumptuous all-day dining experience called Cafe Veranda, as well as a superb steakhouse that grills delectable imported meats inside a chic space that’s decorated with classic movie posters and striking scarlet and beige seats. Wine lovers should not forget to check out the nifty wooden-racked wine cellar. All ingredients used in the hotel’s food are purchased from Marriott-certified suppliers, so as to ensure there are no concerns about the origins and quality of the produce. According to Mr. Lam, The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel has been keeping a keen eye on Gen X and Gen Y travelers, tracking trends to make sure that they continue to appeal to the tech-savvy visitor as well as their traditional customer base. While the hotel’s integration with the local milieu make it fascinatingly unique, it still maintains all the modern conveniences today’s jetsetter has come to expect. All 850 hotel rooms and suites have both

wireless and Wi-Fi Internet that can support up to six devices, and Marriott Rewards customers can take advantage of mobile checkin to smooth the arrival process. Facilities and technology undergo continuous rounds of checking and upgrading, to keep the rooms and public areas in tip-top shape. “We are 30 years old, but we’re very creative. We’ll continue to rejuvenate all the time,” says Mr. Lam. “We’re a very young hotel in the way we do things.” This youthful approach is at the heart of why The China Hotel, A Marriott Hotel has continued to remain popular throughout its three decades of existence. By treasuring its historic past while simultaneously surfing the zeitgeist, it has managed to stay the preferred choice for both older and younger generations. // 122 Liuhua Lu, Yuexiu District, Guangzhou 广州市越秀区流 花路122号 (020-8666 6888) / December 2014



Gaokao cheaters

Insane test-related stress is the mother of invention (or something like that) and this year’s gaokao saw test-cheating innovations that would turn James Bond green with envy. Students slipped radio-equipped vests under their shirts, hid transmitters inside pens and rigged cameras into their glasses. Unfortunately for the students, we have only heard of these innovations because they were found out and posted online by various school authorities. Teachers must have been tipped off when student Wang showed up with a bulky new pair of glasses and weird new pen, then proceeded to talk into his shirt during the test…

ATM annihilation

Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook may not be particularly popular in China, but its CEO is – as he would say – hen youming. He plays a bit loose with his tones, but Mark Zuckerberg was still able to wow an audience at Tsinghua University in October after he conducted a half-hour – completely unscripted (maybe) – Q&A entirely in Mandarin. The 30-year-old ‘accidental billionaire’ started studying the language in 2010, in an attempt to better communicate with his Americanborn Chinese wife’s family. While his language skills were far from perfect (some sources said he “sounded like a 7-year-old”) we give him a hearty ‘Like’ for trying his best.

Sometimes you just have to rage against the machine. When a Dongguan woman had her bank card eaten by a malfunctioning ATM in October, instead of suffering the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, she took up arms against them. After some frustrated screen smacking, the woman grabbed the ATM’s frame and yanked, causing the entire front to collapse and spew forth receipts and mechanical bits, and allowing her to delve deep into its electronic guts to (we hope) retrieve her card. Photos of this valid act of vandalism went viral, familiar as netizens were with the seething anger inflicted by the card-thieving computers.



Mop Ayi

When a cleaver-wielding man attempted to rob a Shanghai bank in July, it wasn’t the cops or security guards who managed to subdue him – it was Gu Jinfang, a fast-thinking cleaning woman twirling her mop. While the would-be robber brandished his knife at the bank’s security guards, Gu managed to thwack him with her long-handled swab, a move that threw the man off balance enough for the guards to launch a volley of plastic chairs at him, restrain him, and wait for the police to arrive. Don’t mess with Mop Ayi!


December 2014 /

Jack Ma

If anyone truly deserves to look back at 2014 with a sense of epic accomplishment, it’s Jack Ma. He slayed the New York Stock Exchange in September with its biggest-ever IPO. He slaughtered China’s wealthy to become the number-one richest man in the country. And in May, he out-crazied other eccentric CEO zillionaires by staging a massive 102-couple-strong mass wedding in Alibaba’s corporate headquarters in Hangzhou. And taking the cult leader trip to the next level, on Singles' Day – which saw record profits for Alibaba – Ma was literally enshrined, with offerings presented to him at impromptu altars set up by Taobao devotees across China. He truly is a god amongst men (kind of).

TP Cop

When a Shanghai man found himself atop the bowl without a square of toilet paper in June, he did what any of us would in a similar situation: he called the police. Not only did they answer his call, but pretty soon one of Shanghai’s finest was at his door, a roll of two-ply goodness in hand. While the valiant officer’s name was not released, Internet commenters who heard about the incident didn’t seem to appreciate this public servant’s bravery, saying that cops “are not your domestic helpers to turn to when you run out of your baby’s nappies.” It would have been a bit sh*tty to ignore him though.

Wu mao

In March, a man from Handan, Hebei Province drove up to his local Audi dealership in a van tightly packed with one-yuan notes and mountains of loose change. Several hours later – after the staff had counted through more than 100,000 one-yuan bills and thousands upon thousands of coins – the man proudly left in his shiny new Audi, his “dream car.” A few months later, in September, a “mysterious man” (as described by local news) decided to make use of his spare bills and showed up at his local cellphone purveyor with 4,000 five-mao notes (presumably earned from some exceptionally strident Internet commenting) tied into bricks and stuffed into a burlap sack. The clerks may not have been particularly thrilled to rifle through all of the notes, but before the end of the day, the man had a new iPhone 5S. The meek (read: cheap) will inherit the earth. Starting with a luxury car and new phone.


Zhang Zhaozhong

“Laser weapons are most afraid of smog.” The confident words of PLA Admiral Zhang Zhaozhong, espousing his pro-pollution views on CCTV in February. Admiral Zhang told viewers that, while the tactical smokescreen of smog may have some drawbacks (see: ability to breathe, cancer, etc.) it also functions as a state-of-theart barrier against American laser weaponry. Internet users were less than thrilled by the PM2.5 apologist, causing Zhang to clarify and say, “I was talking about the weakness of the laser gun, not advocating for smog.”

The iPhone 6 was released in September this year, but one country was notably absent from the list of recipients: China. With no release date in sight, rumors circulated wildly and smuggling exploded. The phone having been released in Hong Kong and Japan, people were soon caught in Mainland airports and border crossings with suitcases stocked to the brim with Apple’s latest device. The smuggling problem got so large, in fact, that Chinese importers were found at Apple stores in New York City, paying groups to wait in line and snatch up the phone. By October, the iPhone 6 finally got its last necessary permit to be sold in the Mainland, and the madness came to an end (until Bend-gate).

Vladimir Putin

Sanya nudie cops

The southern beaches of Sanya, on the tropical island of Hainan, have long been the spot of an annual migration. Each year, countless middle-aged men instinctively flock to the ‘Hawaii of China’ for a chance to strip down and get themselves an utterly, disturbingly complete tan. This time-honored tradition came under threat in 2014, however, as local police began cracking down on the island’s notorious naked. Several determined disrobers were carted off in police custody, where they were presumably given a slap on the wrist (and a towel to wrap around their waists).

This May, you could have been forgiven for thinking that Shanghai was the set of a zombie film: the highways were empty, metro stations shut down and armed guards were out en masse. It wasn’t the brain-hungry undead they were preparing for, though; it was Vladimir Putin. His visit was part of the Asian Regional Summit, a festive meeting flush with pipeline deals, photo-ops and 300,000 ‘security volunteers’ roaming Shanghai’s streets. Thanks to Putin and friends, Shanghai’s residents faced severely delayed transportation, ID checks at major office buildings and – for those who lived close to the conference sites – instructions to keep all apartment windows closed until 11pm. Hopefully you weren’t Russian to be somewhere.



Lei Chunian

Taxi apps

Remember the good old days (way back in… 2013) when all it took to get a taxi was a waving arm? Well those free-wheeling times have passed, for a spectre is haunting the PRD – the specter of the taxi app. While the apps can certainly be useful for those with the esoteric knowledge to work them (read: are Mandarin literate), the chances of being able to grab a taxi on a whim (or after your battery has died) have dropped quicker than Harvey Keitel’s pimp once Travis Bickle came blasting. Carry on practicing those Chinese characters and keep your phone charged… or invest in some solid walking shoes.

‘Heroic Youth’ Lei was a national idol: his quick-thinking during China’s disastrous 2008 Sichuan earthquake saved the lives of seven of his classmates. This year, however, his status crashed after he was caught defrauding more than 20 people out of hundreds of thousands of RMB. Lei took advantage of his fame and told others that he could use connections to help people get jobs, get their children into school or buy a driver's license. All for a fee. Among his victims numbered his yearlong girlfriend, whom he swindled out of RMB10,000. Lei Chunian: a great guy to have around in an earthquake, not too great anytime else.

Justin Bieber

Last year, Justin Bieber got a bit of flack when he was photographed on the shoulders of his bulky bodyguards being carried up the Great Wall – because he was “too tired” to climb the stairs himself. Well this year the Biebs made that look like child’s play (which, technically, it probably was). Taking a lead from page one of the “How to inflame Chinese web commenters” handbook, Justin paid a visit to none other than Japan’s Yasukuni Shrine, a hotly controversial site devoted to those who had died in service of the Empire of Japan, including 1,068 war criminals, 14 of whom are considered A-Class. Naturally enough, he Instagrammed it. Comments ranged from the unprintably obscene to the morose (“As a Chinese Belieber, I am so sad”). The photos – one of Bieber facing the shrine, another with his hands in a praying position above his kneelength white hoody – were soon taken down, but not before many of his 5.1 million followers had gotten a glimpse. El Bieber later apologized for the photos, saying, essentially, that he had no idea what the hell was going on (most beliebable) and just wanted a photo with a shrine. He closed his remarks by adding, “To anyone I have offended, I am extremely sorry. I love you China and I love you Japan.” A very silly little boy indeed. / December 2014

STYLE ‘Migrant chic’

Yes, migrant workers don’t give a hoot about style, but that’s probably what has made their sartorial choices so hip with the fashion set this year. Back in February, international style and retail media hailed the rise of the so-called ‘Migrant Look,’ noticing how the ubiquitous plaid pattern seen on the oversized plastic bags touted by Chinese working masses had become all the rage among fashionistas the world over. The print appeared on the catwalks of Stella McCartney and Celine, and quickly popped up in a number of high street chains. Here in China, quite a few netizens ridiculed the trend – for some reason the PRC’s fashion-forwards seemed uninterested in copying the looks of the country’s underclass. But go check your nearest Zara now. You’ll find an interesting selection of red, blue and white tartan scarves. Just sayin’.

The trendiest trends that trended in the PRC 2014 By Marianna Cerini

Pollution masks

A rather disgustingly polluted winter in Beijing, Shanghai, Harbin, etc. meant pollution masks suddenly got a lot of attention from folks fretting about the state of their lungs. Riding the concern, a number of anti-pollution mask companies decided to give the Bane look a makeover, churning out stylish numbers featuring prints, patterns and tongue-in-cheek logos. The upper echelons of fashion followed suit, with swanky, crystal-embedded masks sported on the runways of a number of Chinese designers. If you’re looking for the must-have accessory of 2014, this is it.

APEC couture

APEC, which was held in Beijing last month, is a platform to discuss major international issues. But we also like to look at it as an annual opportunity to bring some fashion talk into politics. Honoring a tradition started in 1993, heads of state taking part in the meeting spend a whole day decked out in the traditional dress of the host nation for a photo op – which can say a lot about a politician’s style creds. Some years the connection to tradition seems a bit more, well, tenuous. Donning maroon silk Chinese jackets inspired by a Chinese men’s shirt called changpao, Presidents Xi, Obama, Putin et al all looked like they were part of an elite Star Trek convention, not an economic summit. Not a strong look. Yet people loved it, and once again it was Taobao to the rescue with copycat versions flooding the site for RMB1701,000. Live long and prosper, world leaders.

Walking cabbages

That Jaycee Chan look…

Mainly known for being Jackie Chan’s son (we all gotta start somewhere), Jaycee Chan was arrested in August alongside Taiwanese film star Kai Ko for drug use and possession. What emerged from the scandal – besides the fact that he could be sentenced to up to three years in jail – was a somewhat surprising Taobao trend. When an apology by both Chan and Ko was broadcast nationwide from the Dongcheng Detention Center in Beijing, the prison uniforms they were both wearing hit a soft spot among users of the Chinese marketplace. Soon, the collared blue and yellow top emblazoned with the two-character abbreviation for Dongcheng Detention Center started selling like hotcakes on the e-tailer – both as a form of mockery of celebrity life and, tragically, as a seriously coveted item by enthusiasts of the 'bad boy' look. Prices for the tee ranged from RMB299 to RMB88,888,888 – in an attempt to see how stupid people are, we presume.

At the beginning of May, the headline 'China’s Depressed Youth Keep Cabbages as Pets' quickly made the rounds around the globe (must have been a pretty slow news day, but hey). According to the story, the green vegetables were being taken for walks by teens around the country as a way to get over depression and loneliness. The first youngsters to start the ‘trend’ were spotted at Beijing’s Midi Festival (where, to tell the truth, cabbages are pretty abundant). Interviewed by a few reporters, a Chinese psychiatrist said: “The idea is simple – you feel as lonely and as simple as a cabbage, so you begin to act like one and befriend one.” Similarly, a teenager caught with their green pet was quoted as saying: “I have more interest for my cabbage than I do for my parents. I feel it understands me.” Right… Anyway, in the span of two days, the news was dismissed as fake (you don’t say?). The cabbage-walking had apparently merely been a performance art piece based on the work of Chinese artist Han Bing, whose 14-year-old photo series Walking the Cabbage in Tiananmen depicts him dragging a leashed cabbage around. So yeah, people. Chinese kids AREN’T taking up veggies as pets. Crabs, on the other hand… / December 2014





Placenta please

Nothing hits the spot quite like some savory human placenta. Despite being made illegal in 2005, three Causeway Bay medicinal shops in Hong Kong were found stocking bags of human birth sacks in August. Even more in demand, of course, are the Hong Kong establishments that make biscuits from dehydrated, ground placenta. We went to Taobao and found that the word 'placenta' (taipan) was actually not allowed as a search term. However, when we searched 'placenta capsules,' four commodities showed up: three from Japan (RMB1,500-2,500/box) with no description indicating if the placenta in question was human or otherwise. Searching for 'sheep placenta' yields over 4,500 results, and business seems to be booming. Rich in iron and other nutrients, people munch on placenta to counteract the effects of aging and boost their immune systems. Because there are no other ways to get nutrients or iron, apparently.

Addictive noodles

A noodle shop owner in Shaanxi Province was detained in September for adding opium poppies to his noodles, in a cunning attempt to get customers hooked on his food. The scandal came to light after one punter, Liu Juyou, tested positive for drug use during a routine urine test. Liu claimed he had never taken illegal substances in his life, and suspected the traces of drugs came from the noodles he had devoured early in the morning. He then got his entire family to eat at the same restaurant and take urine tests (umm… let’s not even bother), which confirmed his theory. Sadly for Sherlock Liu, he was still detained for 15 days on drug charges. The restaurant owner later admitted that he had purchased 2 kilograms of poppy shells for RMB600, and found out that sprinkling them into his dishes saw customers returning faster than he could say Xanadu. Until, you know, they realized they were being drugged.



A woman in Xiamen, Fujian Province, wasn’t particularly thrilled when a batch of prawns she bought from her local seafood market had their heads and shells falling off, releasing a weird glue-like substance, once she brought them home. When she went back to complain, a wholesale distributor explained that, sometimes, shrimp sellers have a hard time unloading all of their stock and, to make their products more appealing, use various “chemical enhancements” to make the crustaceans heavier and more appetizing. The vendor added that the oozing glue was “probably of some edible kind.” Well, that’s reassuring.


December 2014 /

Raw foodies, beware. A sashimi-loving man in Guangdong went to his doctor complaining of a stomachache and some itchy skin, only to find that his entire body was riddled with worms. The wrigglers were eventually tracked back to some raw fish he had consumed. They were caught in time to just be a minor (if terrifying) issue; had it been much longer, the creatures could have entered his blood stream or even his brain, where the condition could have become lifethreatening. That happened to an unlucky Guangdong woman who loved to eat raw frog (to each her own). She went to the doctor with memory loss and cramps, she found out that her brain was squirming with parasites. Cook. Your. Food.


Shanghai’s Husi Food Company made headlines in July when it was the subject of a Dragon TV exposé which saw it repackaging expired meat and falsely extending expiration dates by up to a year. Workers were captured on camera saying that the meat smelled terrible, but “eating it wouldn’t kill you.” More than 5,000 cases of processed beef, chicken and pork products were found to be made from past-the-sell-by-date flesh. As investigations went on, the company dismissed over 300 employees. By the end of August, Shanghai prosecutors approved the arrest of six Husi executives. Big-name brands they supplied meat to included KFC, Starbucks, Subway, Burger King, Papa John’s, 7-11 and McDonald’s, who severed their contracts after the scandal. Still, our major trust issues with clowns just got a whole lot worse. / December 2014

We all eat healthily and exercise enough, don’t we? Sure, you may have the odd glass of wine to combat a stressful day, skip that early morning run because you need those extra minutes of sleep. But these little lapses can add up, and before you know it, you’ve lost your muscle tone or added a few extra pounds. Time to start thinking short-term: attainable goals within well-defined time periods. Imagine making a checklist of things to do during your workday. You’re more successful in achieving your tasks because you are more organized, and every time you tick off a task there is that sweet sense of accomplishment. Apply this to your fitness: pick up a pen and use it to write down what you eat and how much you exercise for a week. Look for the weak spots: how the occasional treat has become an everyday ritual, or how you’re not fitting in as many workouts as you’d like. Now try cutting just one bad habit and adding just one good habit to the list. Take out the ice cream and add 15 minutes on the treadmill. Take out the happy hour cocktails and add a bike ride. And if you’re looking for a way to go a little further, try a short-term fitness challenge to see just how far you can go. My K2Fit Challenge shows you that in

just 10 weeks it is possible to see and feel changes within your body as well as in your thoughts. During my 13 years as a trainer, I have worked out what training methods are effective to transform your body and what food can best help fuel that transformation. A few small changes now can give you a heightened awareness of how you’re treating your body. Start by making that list and see how far you can go. Your body will thank you!

Don’t be a pain in the… Pain is by far the number-one reason that people come for acupuncture treatment. This week alone, I’ve seen patients in my clinic for stomach, neck, hip and back pain, as well as headaches. How can acupuncture help and what conditions respond best to acupuncture treatment? The short answer is that acupuncture relieves pain by releasing stagnation, and it works for both chronic and acute pain anywhere in the body. So I guess you can stop reading right here… It sounds so simple, but the success of treatment lies in determining what exactly has become sluggish, why this has happened and how to reverse it. All pain is caused by stagnation of energy, blood or fluid circulation. It could be that too much is reaching a particular area and pressure has built up, or it could be that not enough is getting to the site so the tissue is poorly nourished. The most common causes are: physical injury, overuse, poor posture, inherited conditions, long-term exposure to climate extremes, improper diet and mental or emotional stress. Since there are many different types of stagnation and multiple

factors leading to it, each acupuncture treatment for pain must be highly individualized for each patient. As a general rule, the longer that you have had soreness and the more body areas affected, the longer it will take to treat. Acute cases may only take a few treatments over a couple weeks, but chronic ones can take months or longer to really get on top of. In all scenarios, be prepared to make some changes to your activities or lifestyle to get lasting results. It is certainly worth it to finally kick that pain for good.

“Forever young, I want to be forever young,” goes the 80s classic. It’s a prospect that no woman would ever say no to, but the question is, how? According to medical surveys, three things contribute to skin aging: collagen loss that results in skin wrinkles and sagging, muscle atrophy that leads to lining and reduction in facial bone mass causing poorly defined contours. Consequently, facial rejuvenation should include tightening skin through collagen supplements, restoring muscle tone and regenerating bone. Taking this into consideration, Ingrid Millet has introduced the Integrated Remodeling System (IRS) to ease the headache of getting old – and, more importantly, appearing old. Five technologies are delivered simultaneously. The high-voltage pulsatile currents boost bone regeneration and strengthen muscle tone while the impulse micro-currents repair the process of cellular damage that causes aging. Ultrasound enters the deep dermal layer to stimulate fibroblast cells to form new collagen. Electroporation and iontophoresis maximize nutrient penetration. If all that sounds rather scientific and confusing, all you need to know is: it’s meant to return your youthful glow. After a run-of-the-mill cleansing, the treatment begins. A stick attached to the IRS machine is used to massage the face and neck. Jolting your skin with electricity might sound painful, but in fact, all you feel during the procedure is just a bit of soreness around the jaw. Following this shock to the system, a collagen mask is applied to the face to awaken the skin and cause it to absorb the maximum amount of nutrients. One treatment lasts for 45 minutes and costs RMB2,800. It’s not quite a miracle cure, in that a complete return to the crease-free face of yesteryear cannot be achieved with just a single session – making this a solution for those with plenty of disposable income. How many times one should go to combat aging depends on the initial skin condition, daily diet and lifestyle. For women who are aged above 40, it is suggested to have IRS done between 25 and 30 times. After all, if you want to turn back time but not look like Cher, it takes quite a bit of work!

Cool Shop

Simple Things There is a peaceful place in Dongmen, where a boat rests out of water and books have no words. Journeys start here. A lavender scent pervades the air, and people sing together daily, sometimes hourly, in the loft above the register. Welcome to Simple Things. Owner Ginger Nudd got the inspiration for the stationary and ukulele store after backpacking through Asia. When she got to Tibet, she had a clear vision for her future: open a shop to help people find themselves. She started by selling notebooks, because unwritten pages have potential – to carry stories, dreams or journeys. Classic moleskins (RMB146, small) and colorful Concertino notebooks (RMB28-65) along with other brands span the shelves in a book rainbow. A giant red vessel loaded with stationary, its bow full of dried flower bouquets (RMB88), sits in the middle of the shop. Nudd and her staff arrange the bouquets themselves, sometimes staying up all night to complete them. In addition to lavender, dried honeysuckle is mixed in with other seasonal flowers.

In the stern, a nest of postcards, stamps, stickers, tape and Turkish jobaba oil make up a scrapbooker’s dream. Close by, art-house concert posters, including one for Tchaikovsky’s ‘Piano Concerto No. 1,’ can be purchased in a set with the CD of the performance itself (RMB85). A slanted stairway with ukuleles suspended from its wall side leads to a loft where weekly ukulele classes for children and adults take place. Long Beach-based Ohana ukuleles (RMB5608,000) and Hawaiian handmade Waikiki ukuleles (RMB3,000-12,000) are sold to those wanting to explore their music potential. Simple Things does not have a business model. Nudd sells things associated with what she likes: flowers, music, traveling and drawing. She hopes to give people the opportunity to not only realize the potential of life, but to take an active part in designing their own lives.

Qipao 101

How to rock China’s legendary dress by Jocelyn Richards


ou may know the qipao as that skintight cocoon of a dress that only seems to fit the slenderest figure – and that’s before lunch. Sure, the modern qipao packs its fair share of intimidation into each snug thread, yet historically, the dress was not meant to daunt the female physique but flatter it. A mathematically sound design proven to idealize each and every curve of a woman, the qipao can be striking on any body type if tailored correctly. Timeless and intricate, a traditional customized qipao requires no less than 24 physical measurements before it can be crafted correctly. Below, we dissect every last inch of the mysterious design that has captivated suitors for centuries. Neckline: Tradition favors a high mandarin collar, but it all depends on the shape of one’s neck. Long, slim necks are best accentuated with a high neckline and three knotted buttons, while those with shorter necks will find a lower collar more flattering.

Fastens: There are over 100 different styles of knotted buttons, called ‘frog closures,’ and each has a unique symbolic meaning. The most intricate frog designs are generally used for special occasions and can take at least two full days to make by hand. A single qipao should only feature one style – apparently the Manchus weren’t into mixing and matching – while the total number of buttons on the collar and chest traditionally sum to an odd number for artistic touch. Side Fastens: On a traditional qipao, every knotted button is real or ‘living’ (活 扣), as one Chinese term puts it. These buttons should be the only thing that holds the garment onto the body, no zippers or seams allowed! A vital part of the overall look of a qipao, real buttons allow the dress to breathe with a woman’s movement – the taut fabric will expand and contract in sync with one’s motions instead of lying stiff against the body. Fabric: Choice of material doesn’t just change with the seasons. A fabric’s pattern, shine, texture and direction of print can draw attention to certain parts of the body. Those with slim, boyish frames can use silk brocade or velour to create dimension through the shine of the fabric and bring about the illusion of curves, while those with a more buxom figure can use small vertical facing prints to appear trimmer.


December 2014 /

Closures: Frog closures should always lead from the collar to the right underarm and down to the upper right thigh. Don’t fall for modern qipaos that carelessly sew buttons onto the left side! If you’re going for a classic look, stick with what’s called an ‘S closure’ (pictured here) instead of contemporary styles like the halter, keyhole or slit closure. Sleeves: One of the defining elements of the qipao, the length of sleeves will either attract or distract curious onlookers. Those with long, slender arms or narrow shoulders should consider cap sleeves, while robust builds may opt for half-sleeves that end at the elbow. Slit: The sexiest part of this conservative dress, the slit can be made high, medium or low, depending on how risque a look one is going for. The highest slit makes the legs appear longest and usually hits at mid-thigh, revealing just enough to spark the imagination without causing a scene. Color/Design: Red is typically reserved for weddings, as is the phoenix print. Pastel pink is difficult to pull off without looking like a Hello Kitty mascot, but don’t jump to darker shades too quickly – the colors in a qipao traditionally deepen with a woman’s age. For a symbol of purity, go with the lotus. A peony denotes honor and wealth; chrysanthemums are for the cheerful and plump fish are said to promise an influx of cash. Length: Like all dresses, height warrants a longer style. If you are on the shorter side, try for a qipao that hits just above the knee. Traditional qipaos were generally longer, falling to the shin or ankle, though the latter are often worn for more formal occasions.

Every girl must, at least once or twice, have dreamed of being Alice – stepping into a world of unknowns and having a wonderful adventure there. Standing on the rear part of busy Beijing Lu, Goelia 225’s dazzling and diverse decor brings a little bit of magic to reality.

Goelia 225 is located in a traditional fivestory ‘qilou’ building, erected in 1949. “An old building is a carrier of certain sentiments,” explains Manager Karmen Li. “Putting the shop here, in a building with stories, actually enriches Goelia.”

A striking orange façade conceals a tranquil interior. The ground floor has been transformed into a miniature French-style garden, with little trails, a stone pond, evergreen plants and a small wooden pavilion.

A burst of floral fragrance greets one’s arrival on the second floor. A variety of seasonal blooms are displayed and sold here, from red roses and golden sunflowers to white calla lilies and baby-pink carnations.

Continue ascending and reach an area dedicated primarily to young female artists, famous and obscure. Every month, an exhibition that is either themed around women or curated by female artists is held here.

Gadgets and knick-knacks from around the world are on display on the fourth floor where, according to Li, visitors can experience Goelia’s brand culture: inspiration from travel.

A new-fashioned Christmas

Sartorial tips for your holiday parties By Marianna Cerini


hristmas is about celebration and excess, snoozing and lunchtime boozing, loafing, laughing, arguing with family members you see once a year, frantic last minute shopping and watching TV while munching leftovers on Boxing Day. You’d think you wouldn’t need a style guide for that – onesie, a Christmas jumper, thick woolen socks and the job’s done. But there is also the fabled Yuletide bash – mulled wine, smooching under the mistletoe and photocopying ones own buttocks off the back of eggnog bender. So, if you are asked to partake in some good ol’ schmoozing, here’s some inspiration for looking your best this festive season.

December is reserved for China’s biggest films, and legendary director John Woo (Hard Boiled, Face/Off) kicks off the blockbuster month. The two-part 3-D film depicts the 1949 sinking of the Taiwan-bound Taiping steamer, which resulted in nearly 1,000 deaths. Inspired by Dr. Zhivago, Woo has crafted an epic that weaves numerous stories of the doomed, rich and famous passengers (but has dismissed talk that this is ‘China’s Titanic’). Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) headlines a star-studded cast that includes ‘Asia’s Johnny Depp’ Takeshi Kaneshiro, South Korean star Song Hye-kyo (Grandmaster) and Huang Xiaoming (American Dreams in China). The second half should be released next summer.

Milk & Water

A vampire revisionist tale BY Christine Gilbert


vitlana Zavialova never studied deconstructionism, but her short indie vampire dystopian film Milk & Water, currently being shot in Shenzhen, uses this ideology. It’s a revisionist version of a vampire love triangle. Immortality changes from a power to a curse. “Our vampires are vegetarians,” says Anastasia Lebedeva, the film’s designer and producer, as she scrolls through pictures of the film’s costumes – almost monochromatic, complex pieces with lots of leather and metal facets. “They drink milk since they have lost the taste for blood,” she continues, partially explaining the movie title. The plot follows the love story of a vampire named Jane and her witch girlfriend Vanessa. All’s well until Vanessa catches Jane cheating on her with a man. Vanessa casts a spell on Jane to strip her of her vampire powers. Serendipitously, she enacts the enchantment during a planet parade, which somehow warps the spell to make all the vampires in the world lose their powers – except for their immortality.

Our vampires are vegetarians. They drink milk since they have lost the taste for blood

In addition to design and production, Lebedeva also acts in the film. Her character is the only non-magical personality, nerdy girl Kate. Kate spends the beginning of the movie researching the disappearance of her grandfather (Jane’s paramour), which later leads her to Jane and Vanessa. “It’s going to be the opposite of [other vampire movies] in that the drama’s gone,” says Zavialova, the film’s screenwriter and director, in a phone interview. I asked myself, ‘How will vampires see the world if they’ve seen its history firsthand?’ Life like that would be flavorless, like milk and water.” Though the story occurs in a world of vampires and witches, the movie privileges basic human themes of loss, fidelity and a search for truth over its more magical elements. “We show options of reality. We have to [use] human categories. Our storyline is human, but I wouldn’t say everyone could relate,” says Zavialova.

Heavily influenced by Jean Paul Gaultier’s costumes in The Fifth Element, both Zavialova and Lebedeva planned the film to be a fashion project as well. Detailed outfits combined with a minimalistic background and 3-D design help to create the alternate world portrayed in Milk & Water. “Fashion adds details. There are things that can be said by dialogue, but fashion is something that completes the characters,” says Zavialova. The international production crew of Milk & Water wanted to create a “neorealist cityscape,” as Lebedeva puts it. “Shenzhen… has a lot of empty spaces and modern architecture… There is no blend with past and future [here]. There is now and future.” So far, locals have been receptive to helping with the project. “We spent quite a while in preproduction asking restaurants and business owners for permission. Some are even shutting down temporarily for us to use the venue,” notes Zavialova. The crew of artists, designers and technicians behind Milk & Water live and work in China. However, the country influenced the project’s creation more than being integral to some aspect of the plot. Zavialova has lived in many cities around the world, including

New York and Los Angeles, but appreciates how living in China has particularly affected this project. “It seems to be a great place to create here. In China, there is more of a united consciousness. It makes everyone be able to help each other,” she says. She cites how the films score was composed by local musician Greg Merrell as an example. “What I was thinking picture-wise, somehow he transformed into the music. Somehow we were synchronized. I think we are all being influenced in a good way into this Chinese kind of structure.” While the film does have men involved in the production – including Denys Leontyev, a special effects supervisor with 10 years of experience in big budget films in Moscow – the scriptwriting, directing and most of the actors are all women. It’s not an overtly feminist work, but will probably have strong feminist appeal. After wrapping at the end of December, Milk & Water will be entered in several film festivals, including the New York International Independent Film Festival, Future Shorts Film Festival and the Hong Kong Film Festival.

It’s a Mad World

Inside the mind of choreographer Sylvie Xing Chen By Jocelyn Richards

gether. I give different themes and exercises such as moving like an animal, running water, stones… It could also be daily-life activities such as eating, sleeping or making love. In an official performance I will define the theme and give my dancers material like a big piece of paper, wine, honey or flour… to dance or move with. Each dancer of the group brings his own energy to the choreography… With this energy they express themselves through movement and their voices. We perform on the stage with 100 percent spontaneity but conscious interactions.


hen it comes to modern dance, Sylvie Xing Chen is taking abstract movement to an entirely new level with a zealous blend of spontaneity and conceptual choreography. Her dance troupe, ButoInSwitzerland, can be found slinking gracefully through the alleyways of Paris or bending into the majestic folds of white sheets in what have come to be known as some of the most mesmerizing performances known to contemporary dance. A native of southern China, Sylvie diverged from her previous focus in traditional Chinese painting to pursue acting and dance in the French capital 10 years ago. In 2013, she founded ButoInSwitzerland, a contemporary dance and theater group that fuses elements of Western art, Chinese opera and Japanese traditional dance. With conceptual expressions that read like poetry, ButoInSwitzerland explores the dimensions of time, emotions and faith. She spoke to us about her concepts and ideals.

You majored in traditional Chinese painting at the Guangzhou Fine Arts Academy, and have done traditional and contemporary calligraphy, photography, mineral paintings and a number of theater productions. How have these experiences in other mediums affected your approach to modern dance? At 18 I realized that my creativity should be expressed through more than just painting. I wanted to express myself in other ways... I went to Paris to study, and I discovered con-


December 2014 /

I give my dancers material like a big piece of paper, wine, honey or flour to dance or move with temporary dance-theater. It’s a wonderful medley of body movements, singing, languages, dance and other elements.

In what ways have your interpretations of modern dance changed since moving from Guangzhou to Paris to Switzerland? I started in China with hip-hop and jazz. Later in Paris, I was trained… in contemporary dance-theater. I worked with directors such as Sylvaine Hinglais and Samuel Morales Abarza... Later, I met a choreographer, Ursula Berger, in Switzerland, with whom I collaborated on dance-theater pieces. Since 2009 I have worked on different projects for the Performing Academy in Zurich and a film with Fred Van der Kooji. ButoInSwitzerland is partly improvisational and the dancers' movements often appear very sporadic like they are acting in the moment. What proportion of their performances are rehearsed and how much is spontaneous? My dancers and I meet each Sunday for two hours and improvise choreography to-

How does the troupe's method of communication differ from that of other modern dance troupes? I refuse the so-called ‘perfect age’ or ‘perfect dancer figure’ mentality. All my dancers have different body shapes, different ages and different stage experiences. For example, Urs Allemann is a 60-year-old ballet dancer. Gabriel Mareque is a 21-year-old hip-hop dancer. Chris Stettler is a 44-year-old jazz dancer… They all enjoy creating with me, and we perform perfectly together.

What specific elements of Western culture, Chinese opera and Japanese traditional dance does the troupe tend to use in its choreography? Improvisation is the most important [element] that I take from Western culture. Most of the Chinese-style artists are too ‘prepared,’ losing the naivety and curiosities of creation. Chinese opera singing is a great inspiration for my voice performance: the dramatic, long scream. From the traditional Japanese dance, I learned coded face and hand expressions, extremely slow movement and freeze movement – which can change the perception of time. What kinds of props are utilized in your upcoming performance in Guangzhou, and what do they signify? In the piece ‘Future: Heretofore,’ each dancer will attach three to six toilet paper rolls on their body and walk in the space. These white lines represent their future, their present and heretofore. At the beginning… dancers are improvising with a big pullover, which restricts their body. It’s a symbol of obsession of the past and anxiety for future.

The Fallacy

Leaders of the new school By Andrew Chin

Zhao Xiang


or years, all paths to Mainland musical success passed through Beijing. But as China’s second and third-tier cities swell, so do their cultural currency, allowing acts like The Fallacy to build a national following from the suburbs of Henan Province. “Xinxiang has a rock atmosphere,” says singer-guitarist Wang Xubo. “While the city is small, many bands include it in their tour and there are several bands here. Personally, I don’t think it matters where you’re from. Music is the most important thing.” Formed in 2008, the trio has released two snarling records on Modern Sky. Musically, they’re carrying the torch for China’s Internetdriven post-punk tradition, which began flourishing a decade ago and produced current standouts Carsick Cars and Hedgehog. Wang believes that young Chinese musicians are attracted to pioneers like Joy Division, The Birthday Party and Swans, “because of their independent attitude, their artistic approach and just the greatness of the music.” The father of Chinese art-punk, P.K. 14 frontman Yang Haisong gave The Fallacy the ultimate seal of approval by producing their sophomore record Debris. Describing the sessions as “a very happy time,” Wang praises Yang’s live-to-tape recording style for capturing the group’s musical growth. “From our first record to Debris, we built up better mutual understanding of our music,” he says.

Paradoxically, that meant getting looser. Debris layers shards of sharp riffs that threaten to rail out of control, creating a more menacing mood than their excellent 2011 debut, The Silence of Others. While released in March, the band is supporting it with their first national tour that takes them to Yuyintang on December 20. Wang marvels at the 21-city itinerary, admitting “there’s no telling what will happen,” but promises The Fallacy are at their natural nastiest on stage. He’s encouraged that “indie music is really starting to affect young Chinese people,” shouting out Xi'an’s The Fuzz. Following the tour, The Fallacy will work on their third record, eyeing a late-2015 release. Wang is also forming a second group and talks up the advantages of being a suburban artist. “Life is more comfortable with less pressure,” he says. “It allows us to put more energy into the band and make good music.”

Nobel Prize winner Mo Yan’s latest work By Aelred Doyle


hat to make of Mo Yan? Originally written in 2009, this Englishlanguage version has been much awaited by Anglophones eager to see what the fuss is all about. This is the most recent novel by the winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Literature after all, and the prolific Howard Goldblatt is the most lauded of the Chinese-toEnglish translators. We haven’t read the earlier books, so can’t pronounce on Mo’s body of work as a whole, but this is a disappointment. Frog covers well-trodden territory with a surreal veneer that reduces our engagement with the characters, and adds a misbegotten final flourish. As he has done previously, Mo sets the novel in his own childhood home of Gaomi County in Shandong Province. Born in 1955, he lived through the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution, and he has come at these subjects either obliquely or directly in his work. The most important character, the narrator’s aunt (who in the novel is known as Gugu – father’s sister), is apparently also based on Mo’s own aunt; he has said he asked her not to read the book on the grounds that it would make her angry. Gugu is a gynecologist, and a woman of fierce intelligence and courage, saving lives by replacing primitive childbearing methods with a modern medical approach. When her fighter pilot fiance defects to Taiwan, her reputation is ruined and the Cultural Revolution becomes difficult for her. Yet she still remains admired until the One-Child Policy begins to be implemented and her role becomes a rather different one. The drive of the novel for its first two thirds or so is her passage from heroism to fanaticism. In a rare interview, Mo told Der Spiegel that “China has gone through such tremendous change over the past decades that most of us consider ourselves victims. Few people ask themselves, though: ‘Have I also hurt others?’ Frog deals with this question, with this possibility.” It’s an admirable ambition. Yet that kind of probing is obscured by the growing absurdity of the plot in the later stages of the book, as Mo throws the stylistic kitchen sink


December 2014 /

China has gone through such tremendous change that most of us consider ourselves victims. Frog deals with the question, ‘Have I also hurt others?’ at his themes. The framing device is letters from narrator Tadpole to a Japanese professor friend, written from the vantage point of old age. It adds nothing to the book, and seems to be there to liberate Mo from a conventional narrative following Tadpole from the hard days of mid-century to today’s modern China. It’s in these later present-day sections that things go wrong, with Tadpole and wife

Little Lion stumbling on an illegal operation that comes to include a horribly scarred surrogate mother, a Don Quixote-themed restaurant and some pretty terrible behavior. We are so far from reality here, and movement is so bogged down in metaphor and subsequent explanation of metaphor (the character ‘wa,’ the Chinese name of this novel, can mean both ‘frog’ and ‘baby’ – you’d better believe that Mo grinds hard at this linguistic quirk), that we found our patience tried rather than our empathy won. Mo Yan is clearly an excellent writer. At its best, Frog is engrossing, and its village of people become vivid through accumulation of detail and a precise grotesquerie (Mo has described his work as “peasant writing”). Late in the book there is a wonderful depiction of Tadpole chasing a thief, only to be turned on by the whole town and chased himself. “What I don’t understand, Sensei, is why people have to be so horrible,” writes Tadpole. Here, the plaint is moving and earned. Early in the book, young Tadpole describes what it was like to eat coal, and in general the writing in early sections is nicely balanced between sharp accuracy and light satire. And yet, and yet. Writing in the London Review of Books, Nikil Saval noted that “a boundless disregard of tone is indeed Mo Yan’s signature.” It’s a point well made, and the tendency of characters to move between earthy quips and grand declamation is a problem from the start. Gugu’s highly symbolic form of madness in her later days is more literary device than neurosis, and the very end of the book goes badly wrong, with Tadpole deciding to write the last section of the story (remember, these are his letters) in the form of a play. This form does have the benefit of zipping along, and illuminating the themes of selfishness and corruption, and the neverending sway of superstition; but it’s too much, too late. But who are we to argue with the Swedish Academy? Readers should read Frog for themselves, since it’s been a divisive book from the start. We’ll be trying Mo Yan’s earlier books to find out what all the fuss is about.

Double Happiness

Terry Fox Run and GIVES in one jam-packed day by Matt Horn


ecember 6 will be a big day for the international community in Guangzhou. In the morning, the 12th Guangzhou Terry Fox Run will be held at Luhu Golf Club, raising money for the global cancer charity. Then, from midday, GIVES (Guangdong International Volunteer Expat Services) will host its annual International Food and Fun Fair in the Canton Place.

Fab food and fun

Follow the Fox When Canadian teenager Terry Fox was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 1977, the most common bone cancer to affect young people, doctors did not hesitate to amputate his right leg. Today, in many ways thanks to the young Canadian’s incredible story, sufferers no longer face such a drastic treatment, not only keeping their limbs intact but surviving. That was not the story for Terry Fox himself, who passed away four years after the amputation. But in those four years he not only endured cancer treatment, he embarked on the remarkable Marathon of Hope across Canada that continues to inspire people around the world today. Running with a prosthetic right leg, he covered more than 5,000 kilometers in 143 days and inspired a nation. Earlier this year, an estimated three million Canadians took part in Terry Fox Runs across the Great White North, but the event is also increasingly international, now being held in more than 60 countries. At 8.30am on December 6, thousands of runners will set off from the start line at Luhu Golf Club, which is running the event in partnership with Canadian

hotel chain the Four Seasons. In the past 11 years, the Terry Fox Run in Guangzhou has successfully raised almost RMB3 million and greatly contributed to the development of cancer research in the region. Among those lining up will be the Canadian consul general in Guangzhou himself, Weldon Epp, a long-term supporter of the event. “Guangzhou’s Terry Fox Run is by now a great community tradition in this city,” he explains, “raising awareness and funds which all stay in Guangdong to further cancer research. Terry Fox’s bravery, as a teenager facing death from cancer, and his audacious decision to raise awareness and funds by running across Canada with a prosthetic leg, made him a hero in Canada and an inspiration that continues to cross borders and generations.” As ever, the run is set to be a truly international experience. Expected numbers of anywhere between 4,000 and 7,000 will be running 2 kilometers, 5 kilometers or 10 kilometers, depending on level of fitness.

How would you like to enjoy a global tour for your taste buds while being entertained by performances and performers from around the world? Throw in the chance to win great raffle prizes and bid for amazing auction items and there really is only one place to be between noon and 6pm on December 6. For the 13th time, GIVES is hosting its annual International Food and Fun Fair in the Canton Place in Zhujiang Xincheng, with fantastic food and family fun guaranteed. The flagship fair follows the tried and tested recipe of combining international performances with food and drink from all corners of the world, ensuring it has become one of the highlights of the expat calendar. With the motto of working hand in hand, GIVES brings together all aspects of the international community, from schools to consulates, from chambers of commerce to world-renowned hotels. The result is an event that not only gives everyone a great day out, but raises muchneeded funds. This year's event is again raising money to help support autistic children in Guangdong. GIVES has been working along-

side local organizations and schools to raise awareness of the condition, this year bringing experts from abroad to speak at conferences and share their expertise. For many years autism went under the radar here in China, but it is far more recognized today, although much work still needs to be done. "The fair is the key event for GIVES," explains Rosaline Yam, the charity's president. "It could not succeed without the support of New World, owners of the Canton Place, those who rent the booths and provide the food, the people who entertain us on the stage and, of course, the people who come along on the day. “The aim of GIVES is to join hands with the local community in many different ways, through sport, through music, through art, through farming and through autism support. We stand for the spirit of the four 'I's: interaction, insight, inspiration and integrity. Entrance to the fair costs RMB20 for adults and RMB10 for children, with immediate entry into the prize draw.

Volleyball at the End of the World

Beneath the stars, beside the black lake BY Lee Moore


e almost did not get to our final camping spot in our trip to hitchhike the Silk Road. We had been told that you could not buy bus tickets to Karakul until the day of your journey. So, at 10am Beijing time, I rolled into the bus station to buy two tickets for Galen and myself to the ‘black lake,’ situated on the edge of China. "Today, we're all sold out," the old Han Chinese lady told me, leaning towards the window "What?" I said. "You have to come earlier," she instructed. "Is there anywhere else that I can get tickets?" "Here. Come earlier tomorrow," she informed me. "No, for today?" I begged. She shrugged. "There is a place where pickup trucks leave to go up to Karakul Lake. But it is more expensive, and I do not know much about it. Try here." She wrote down the name of an intersection in Kashgar's suburbs. The address she gave me led to a parking lot where leather-necked pickup truck drivers were gathered. Karakul is so remote that most of the goods freighted up to it come via these drivers, who fill their cabs with four passengers and their beds full of freight. I negotiated a price for a truck – RMB200, five times the price of a bus ticket – and we were off, carry-

ing, amongst other things, a large sign for the China Meteorological Association. Karakul is about as far away from Beijing as you can get while still being within China’s borders. In fact, it is as close to Beirut as it is to the capital, and only 60 miles from Afghanistan. The body of water is at an altitude of 3,645 meters, but it sits beside the massive Muztagh Ata, a mountain which towers over the lake at a height of 7,546 meters. When we hopped out of our pickup, we steered clear of the official lakeside 'park,' which charges admission to tour-bus visitors, and found a quiet yurt owned by some Kyrgyz shepherds who let us stay the night. Hiking around Karakul, we took a path used by herders to go deeper into the mountains, where roads have not yet penetrated. Two boys on motorbikes zoomed past me, bouncing along the dirt path in offbrand wind suits and tennis shoes, their hats turned to the sides of their heads. "Hello," they shouted, laughing as they sped around

the lake and up into the brown hills. Clambering further, we ran into some more young shepherds, these playing volleyball. Their court was nothing more than a dirt area bifurcated by a limp net. A motorcycle was parked on one side, and their play was occasionally interrupted by sheep passing through. In the background rose a dozen grey yurts amid mud-brown hills. Behind those loomed Muztagh Ata, ‘the father of ice mountains,’ his white peak lost in the clouds. We joined the kids for half a game, but they soon dispersed to tend their flocks. Night came quick and cold. The people who owned the yurt where we were staying gave us some pilaf and tea. I popped a beer and we relaxed beside our temporary dwelling as night crept up Muztagh Ata's side. The nighttime sky was the best we’d seen in China, the Milky Way buxom above the 7,000-meter peak. We did little more than stare, dumbfounded.

Speaking in Several Tongues

Being multilingual is good for the brain BY Lena Gidwani


veryone agrees – birth up to the end of primary school is the best time in which to learn a second, or even a third, language. There are some 6,800 spoken tongues in the world, and since babies have no idea where they will be born or what they will be exposed to, they are dependent on their parents to provide enough stimuli to ensure they can communicate. That talent to absorb, however, fades fast. Jeffrey Kluger, senior editor of Time magazine, wrote a brilliant, thought-provoking article in 2013 about babies and the field of linguistics and neurology. He proclaimed that during the first few months of a baby’s life, its brain builds a large number of important connections – up to a billion a second. By the age of about eight months, synapses number 1,000 trillion, but then they start to decline precipitously unless the child is exposed to stimulation. By the age of 10, they have reduced by half to approximately 500 trillion. It is during this period of time that the foundation for vision, language, thinking, attitudes, aptitudes and other characteristics are established. In these early years, also known as the critical period of growth and development, the brain is like a sponge. Once development is complete, the window closes and any further learning has to be gained through long and hard traditional methods. This primary assumption goes back to the basis of research conducted by Eric Lenneberg, one of the pioneers in the contemporary field of the biology of language. Other studies have shown that children who


December 2014 /

Polyglots were found to have a larger density of grey matter, the part of the brain which is responsible for processing information learn a language before the onset of adolescence are much more likely to have native pronunciation. Tests carried out during the last few decades, particularly those conducted most recently by University College London, have shown that a multilingual brain is quicker and better able to deal with ambiguities, resolve conflicts and resist diseases and other forms of dementia. Polyglots were found to have a larger density of grey matter, the part of the brain which is responsible for processing information, including memory, speech and sensory perception. Those who had been exposed to a secondary or tertiary language from an early age proved to have the most grey matter. With the enhancement in overall mental development, the result is increased skills, self-esteem, thinking and reasoning skills and math ability, in addition to learning how to read earlier. All this is not new information for international schools here in the PRD. Most

of their students take timetabled lessons in Mandarin that last from about 40 minutes to an hour, three to four times a week, with some offering options for a third home language such as French, German, Spanish, Japanese and even Arabic and Russian. The language of instruction, however, is still essentially English. Having said that, several schools in China have now implemented true duallanguage immersion programs, where an equal emphasis is placed on both Mandarin and English for kids as young as pre-kindergarteners. Elaine Whelen, head of the soon-tobe-opened ISA International School in Guangzhou, is convinced that parents in the community are finally starting to embrace the beauty of truly living in China and of starting language instruction from the getgo. Her school will offer a minimum of at least three hours of instruction time in both English and Chinese every day. “Over my years in education, over numerous occasions I have heard parents lament the lack of time for, and/or quality of, language programmes. But many educational leaders remain focused on just English as the most important language in the school, if not the world. This thinking is not based on educational research, nor is it meeting the needs of the current clients, students and parents. I cannot explain this phenomenon, but I do know that all the educational, linguistic and neuroscientific research supports mother tongue and bilingual immersion programs," says Whelen. Kids in schools around the PRD and elsewhere don’t have to think too much about what’s happening up in their brains when they go to school each morning. Instead, they naturally develop an awareness and appreciation of the rich, lyrical and diverse experience of living and growing in a cultural environment like ours. When most adults are keenly aware of the headaches associated with studying languages later in life, it’s just common sense to encourage a multilingual education for children as early as possible. / December 2014

Off the Vine

Reserve Mouton Cadet Sauternes


ast month, we talked about noble rot, the fungal infection that leads to prized dessert wines. Continuing on that theme, December’s selection comes from Sauternes, a region of France which gives its name to particularly well-regarded examples of wine made from Botrytis cinereaaffected grapes. Sauternes is protected by the French appellation d’origine controlee (AOC), or ‘controlled designation of origin,’ a classification system that basically ensures only wines produced in the region – to certain specifications – are allowed to label

themselves as Sauternes. One example can be found in Baron Philippe De Rothschild’s Mouton Cadet range, which was formed as a seller of reasonably priced claret. Today, the brand still only vends a handful of blends, including the very intense and sweet Reserve Mouton Cadet Sauternes. Containing approximately 90 percent semillon and 10 percent sauvignon blanc grapes, this sweet wine goes down swimmingly with that quintessentially French dish, foie gras, as well as citrus tarts and blue cheese. Considering that the festive sea-

son is just around the corner, a good dessert wine to pair with rich foods is just the gift we were looking for.

Tropical Meat

Vietnamese lemongrass beef steak By Christine Gilbert


ietnamese beef: succulent, tender, shrouded in herbs and cooked for half a day – wait, can we have a recipe that isn’t pho, please? No disrespect pho, but what about something with a quicker prep time? Chef Amy Nguyen from Muine saw our challenge and raised us her Vietnamese lemongrass beef steak. Oozing lemongrass and pineapple juice, this steak’s aroma will transport all those who smell it, probably to the deck of a junk boat somewhere in the aquamarine waters of Hạ Long Bay. Quit fantasizing long enough to eat and lemongrass’ medicinal properties will take effect: relief from achy joints, the common cold and stomachaches. Another ingredient, sesame seeds, protects the liver from alcohol, lessens anxiety and the magnesium in them helps prevent respiratory disorders.

Preparation: 1) Cut the beef slices into small sections. 2) Combine the pineapple, garlic and lemongrass in a blender or food processor. Mix well. 3) Place the mixture in a bowl and stir in the sesame seeds, sugar, salt, black pepper, beef seasoning powder, curry powder, cornstarch and sesame oil. 4) Place the beef in the mixture and marinate for 30 minutes. 5) Fry or grill the beef. If frying, add sesame oil to the pan and fry for two to three minutes or until brown. If grilling, grill for at least three minutes on each side for rare meat. 6) Place the steak pieces on a serving plate and garnish with lettuce and cucumber. // This recipe is courtesy of Amy Nguyen at Muine, Shop 219, Garden City Center, 1086 Nanhai Dadao, Shekou, Nanshan District 南 山区蛇口南海大道1086号花园城中心219商 铺 (2681 7828)

DOORS Chillout Lounge

No sauce for you! By Christine Gilbert


enal Ceylán has specific ideas about how to cook food and how to eat it – if you don’t like that, you can leave. Trust his intuition and you’ll eat some of the best lamb of your life in his restaurant, Doors, off Shenzhen University’s west gate. Opened for three years and beloved by Shenzhen University students and Taoyuan residents, originally Doors was Savarona, a place students walked to after class. Business associates gathered here to smoke hookah, pilots took their wives to steak dinners and everyone who dined was expected to speak a little Chinese, although the waitresses helped you if you

got stuck. Doors signifies a different kind of restaurant, just as a door itself signifies change. The name is also simpler than the former moniker and mirrors an approach to how food gets made here. Doors offers the basics, because when the basics are done right, nothing else is needed. To understand this concept, just order the lamb. Both the sirloin (RMB95/250-260 grams) and the kafes (RMB220/500 grams) recipes took Ceylán over a year to perfect. On the sirloin alone, he spent RMB6,000 buying meat to experiment with different variations. Thankfully, he settled on only the essentials, seasoning it with imported Canadian sea salt and olive oil, making it tangy as well as tender. The kafes marinates for a month before being cooked, and once presented on a wood cutting board, should be eaten from the fleshiest part first, working toward the bone. It’s already expertly dressed, so don’t ask for sauce. Doors doesn’t have any, and you won’t be welcome back. A perfectly firm consistency, with crispy skin, the kafes will require a few satisfying chews before swallowing.

A simple rule here is: meat should relax but fish should be fresh. Marinated in garlic, olive oil and a little ginger before being served, the fish (RMB98) is garnished with lemon slices and peppers. Highly aware of its diverse customer base, here at least the eatery offers sauces: spicy for Westerners and lemon based for Asians. For drinks, try the aptly named Cookie (RMB50), an ice-cold sugar cookie infusion of alcohol created by Ceylán. For nondrinkers, Doors has Turkish tea (RMB50). In Ceylán’s home country, Turkey, sunflowers mean freedom. He designed the interior to look like a wooden vase with lighted sunflowers coming out of the floor. Though not as obvious, the food here has a sense of freedom about it as well, of experimentation gone right. Price: Approx RMB60-100 per person Who's Going: Anyone, especially those living in the Shenzhen University area Good for: Causal lunch or date night

Sieste Cafe

Drink or nap? Text and photos by Emma Guo


urrounded as it is by many aboveground Korean shops, it’s not surprising that Koreans as well as local Chinese make up much of Sieste’s customer base. True to the name, we even spied one customer napping here for a good 30 minutes. And why not? With wooden tables, leather sofas and dusky red brick walls, it’s akin to a cozy underground library where delicious cakes instead of books are checked out. Located in the ever-busy Chegongmiao subway station, Sieste is an office worker’s caffeinated respite. For those who love single-origin coffee, we recommend a cup of Ethiopian Yirgacheffe (RMB45). With a slight tangerine fragrance, this medium-tolight-bodied beverage will refresh all who order it. Jamaican Blue Mountain (RMB88)

can also be ordered for those not dreaming of Africa, but intrigued by a little bluegreen color in their drink. Other standard items include the Americano (RMB28), espresso (RMB20) and cappuccino (RMB30). Beers can also be purchased, such as the white Hoegaarden (RMB38) and black Oettinger (RMB35). Of the cakes, the dark chocolate (RMB25) stands out with its ground pistachio and dried cranberry garnish. A whopping 70 percent cocoa, it’s rich but not heavy. Conversely (though still delectable), the cheesecake (RMB25) is creamy and filling. Dieters be warned. Sieste runs its own bakery at a separate location in Shenzhen where all the cakes are made. They claim to import many ingredients, but are reluctant to mention

what brands they use out of fear that other cafes will copy their creations. Customers can even custom order their own special cake. Since there are not many options on the menu, it won’t sate those wanting a big lunch. However, for those desiring simply to grab a coffee and check some emails, it’s the right place on the block.

brew methods. The trend has washed over America and Oceania to ebb on the shores of the Pearl River Delta. What came before, you ask? First-wave coffee was the initial mass consumption, while the second wave was the saturation of chain coffee shops. Third wave refers, in many ways, to the most ambitious and intellectual move yet: connoisseurship. All Gee’s beans are roasted in their own roasting house in Meilin, hailing everywhere from Hawaii to East Africa. The centerpiece of the shop, the bar, holds a hand-brewer’s playground: V60 and Kyoto drippers, siphons and a gleaming espresso machine. For the purist, we recommend the Perfume (RMB38), a single-origin from Ethiopia with berry notes. For the traditionalist, we recommend the latte (RMB25) topped with expertly foamed flowers. For the innovator, we recommend a coffee cocktail. The Flavor Wheel (RMB38) comes as a shot of espresso mixed with Jameson, a lemon slice and white sugar. Put the sugar on the lemon slice and chew for several seconds while the

flavor comes to fruition. Take the shot and down it – wedge and all – for a bittersweet energy boost. Food-wise, the spaghetti bolognaise comes al dente with well-cooked beef and an oddly satisfying, slightly sweet sauce mixed with freshly grated parmesan cheese. We advise not using the overly large plastic wear it comes with to eat though, as the noodles tend to fall through the fork prongs. Enjoy all of the above on the large outdoor wood deck. Speckled with trees and potted cacti, it’s perfect for shady people watching.

Craft brew to howl about TExt and photo BY Christine Gilbert


his year’s rise of high-quality beer spots in Coco Park continues with the opening of The Doghouse. Named in homage to the Edinburgh-based bad asses of craft brew, BrewDog, the bar’s business model is simple: provide craft beer on draft at a reasonable price. Of the four BrewDog beverages on tap, the Dead Pony Club (RMB50) is an excellent introduction for those new in the India Pale Ale world. With a low alcohol percentage of 3.8 and mild hops, the bitterness comes late into the aftertaste, with only a slight end punch. Hardcore IPA drinkers, though, will want the Jackhammer (RMB65). Weighing in at 200 on the IBU count, it has more bitterness than human taste buds can detect – and that’s a good thing. All the brews are unfiltered. All the brews are unpasteurized. And all the brews on draft have won awards. Situated outside, the whole bar stands on a wood deck, surrounded by small trees

and shrubs. Beer snobs walk around clutching tumblers, looking pleased and chuckling about things like sports, grilling and inferior beverages. All of it feels vaguely like a weekend backyard barbecue sans the house and lawn. In the future, The Doghouse plans to encourage this vibe by inviting customers to bring their own meat to fry on the premises. This is the only place in Shenzhen that has four Brewers & Union beers on draft. Meanwhile, construction has begun on a smaller bar in the back to house taps of two local brews from Pearl River Craft Breweries. During our visit, the bartenders were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive – except for one thing. As we were discussing the subtleties of unfiltered beer with the manager, we looked down to our bar nuts and noticed a black strand in them. Talk about hair of the dog. A chilled-out atmosphere, decent Wi-Fi and beer with character – The Doghouse has quite a bite.

Captain’s Bar

A new voyage

BY Emma Guo, photo by Christine Gilbert


eopened this October, Captain’s Bar continues to be one of the most romantic spots on the Shenzhen drinking circuit. Located on the Shekou marina, it provides cinematic views of the harbor as well as a peaceful atmosphere. Shekou locals and expats alike flock to the extensive outdoor seating area with a special someone or their raucous Chinese business parties. Decorated with sturdy wooden seats and white umbrellas, the terrace is the first choice for most patrons. A cool, gentle sea breeze rolls through, like one is on the deck of a ship. Be warned, however, that dining outdoors entails some second-hand smoke from fellow patrons. For a cozier spot, venture upstairs to the dimly lit lounge with overstuffed brown couches and a bit of a first-mate’s-quarters vibe. Much the same as other bars in town, the drink menu offers cocktails, wines and whisky. For something befitting the environment, try the Sea Breeze (RMB46). Refresh-

ing cranberry juice and tangy grapefruit juice come well mixed with vodka that can only be barely detected. Other cocktails and martinis are priced reasonably at RMB42-46. Imported beers grace the menu, from Scotland’s BrewDog Punk IPA (RMB40) to Belgium’s La Chouffe (RMB45). According to the manager, the bestseller at Captain’s is Vedett Extra White (RMB45/large, RMB32/ small), which has a creamy mouthfeel with a light lemon taste. For seafaring sustenance, order the Italian bruschetta (RMB42) to start. The fresh tomato salad atop soft white baguette slices will stave off the hunger until you reach shore – or until you get an entree. After a long day at sea (or a long trek down the Shekou subway line to get here), reward yourself with a tandoor-roasted chicken (RMB118/whole, RMB76/half). Well seasoned, it comes complete with mixed salad, french fries and mayonnaise. Despite their friendliness, the staff are slow on the water refills – one hour slow, making us wonder if they’ve misinterpreted

the meaning of ‘wait staff.’

Sicilia Bar & Club

Drink, then dance By Emma Guo


ocated on the bar street of Shopping Park, Sicilia Bar & Club is the new nightlife hotspot in town. Divided into two sections, the airy outdoor area seems to be preferred among clientele. Tiny yellow bulbs hang from the ceiling in a zigzag pattern, bathing the wooden furniture and plush rainbow-colored pillows in a soft amber glow. Catch up with friends in this relaxing environment but beware the abundance of second-hand smoke. The indoor section has a large dance floor, a DJ spinning nightly and pulsating music. According to the bartender, Stella Artois (RMB50/500 milliliters, RMB40/300 milliliters) is the superstar of the beer selection among expat clients. This Belgium

brew pours a lovely golden color with a thin creamy head and tastes slightly hoppy and sweet. With a good bitterness, it’s a refreshing, delicious beverage. Fancy a cocktail instead? All cocktails are priced RMB48 except for the Long Island iced tea (RMB58). And for those that want to smoke, Sicilia has an extensive shisha collection (RMB180-480). Flavors

include various fruits, flowers and mint. Pool enthusiasts can pot balls on a couple of tables that are – perhaps surprisingly – free of charge. If you’re looking for more musical entertainment though, Sicilia’s weekly events include hip-hop Mondays and salsa party Thursdays, as well as a ladies’ night on Wednesdays that promises the fairer sex a free cocktail. If drinking is your forte, then you might want to partake in the shots promotion, which offers four glasses of vodka, gin, rum and whisky for RMB100. Outdoor lounging, hookah, drink deals and dancing – definitely come to Sicilia if you don’t feel like staying at home all night.

walks the walk


The teams! The players! The comedy nicknames! BY IAN WALKER


uangzhou Evergrande were worthy Chinese Super League champions. Why? Simple: they had the best team and they got the most points. It’s football, not rocket science! That said, while Evergrande had strength in depth to get the job done, I’m not sure they were as good as they were in 2013. It was a bit tighter than they would have anticipated – or liked – with Beijing Guo’an coming on strong in the second half of the season and forcing the title race down to the last game. Beijing ended up faltering at the last hurdle, but it was great to see the two best teams battle it out to the death. A lot of that was down to the arrival of their strike duo in July, Swede Erton Fejzullahu and Montenegrin Dejan Damjanović. They came in scoring – bagging 22 goals in fifteen games between them – and straight away you saw an improvement. They gave them more belief, a bit of impetus. Apparently Fejzullahu is a handsome devil too. I don’t see it myself… In terms of other standout players, you have to say it was the strikers. Look at Evergrande and their Brazilian scoring machine, Elkeson – good in the air, a two-footed finisher, takes free kicks, bangs in penalties. You can’t argue with that record – 52 goals in 56 Chinese Super League games. He scores for fun.

Tobias ‘Da Pigu’ Hysen

Hamdallah over at city rivals Guangzhou R&F was the surprise package of 2014. Nobody really knew him before he came to China – a young Moroccan guy who came in and scored a load of goals out of nowhere. He’s quick, sharp on the turn, a lethal finisher… again, a player who can score with both feet. And of course, Tobias Hysen at my team Shanghai East Asia (or Shanghai SIPG as we are now known); 19 goals in his first season, that is a great return for us. He’s quick, he’s got a lethal left foot and he has got a beautiful big bum which he uses to bounce defenders out of the way! Think I’m joking? The fans have nick-


December 2014 / SZ /

named him ‘Da Pigu’ – ‘Fat Ass.’ (I hope you’re reading this, Toby…) Casting an eye across the continent, the Asian Champions League Final between Western Sydney Wanderers and Saudi side Al-Hilal caused a bit of controversy. It looks like the Japanese referee went home with a load of Aussie dollars in his back pocket!* It was always going to be a tough game for Sydney, and they have got to think that they completely got away with it; there were at least three what you would call ‘stonewall penalties,’ but for some reason referee Yuichi Nishimura didn’t give them. I would not be a happy man if that happened to me – making it all the way to the ACL Final only for the referee to do that. I probably wouldn’t have spat on, tried to head butt or fight people, as one of the Saudis did, however. He’s let himself go there; emotions running high, the disappointment. Still, no real excuse for that kind of behavior. A bit of a

Hysen has got a beautiful big bum he uses to bounce defenders out of the way! Think I’m joking? The fans call him ‘Da Pigu.’ disgrace. I feel for them though, because they thought they had been cheated. Whether it was just incompetence at the highest level, or whether somebody took some money, I don’t know. Obviously you can only speculate. But it was incompetence at the highest level, at the very least. Baffling the way Nishimura saw things. Nishimura – that name ring a bell? He was the same referee who gifted Brazil victory over Croatia in the opening game of the World Cup. Croatia were playing very well at 1-1 with 20 minutes to go, when hosts Brazil got a helping hand with a very dubious penalty (so he can give them!) It will be interesting to see if he ever referees at the highest level again. I certainly wouldn’t be very happy if he turned up to officiate a big game of ours… The Asian Champions League is the big one for Chinese teams, and will be the target for my club next season, especially with confirmation of the appointment of Sven-Göran Eriksson, and talk of an RMB500 million war chest with which to strengthen the squad. It is going to be difficult for teams like ours, trying to break into that sought-after top three. Champions four times in a row, Evergrande are

always going to be strong. And Beijing will be desperate to go for the title after pushing them all the way this year. Then there is the team Sven has just left, Guangzhou R&F, who took third place this year. He left them looking strong (let’s hope he doesn’t live to regret it in the coming season). And cup finalist Shandong, who finished fourth – strong squad and rich owners. And if all that wasn’t enough, there will undoubtedly be one or two others stumping up

Dejan Damjanović and Erto n


some cash to see if they can break the status quo. The likes of Guizhou, Jiangsu… and it will be interesting to see what Shanghai Shenhua do in response to our new ownership – they also have big backers. So it won’t be easy. We had a good season this year given our budget, but it is time to strengthen and organize. Nothing less than a top three finish will be good enough. But there are no guarantees in this league.

* There is, of course, absolutely no suggestion here that the Japanese referee “went home with a load of Aussie dollars in his back pocket…”
