Xi'an Models: Guo Jia

Xi'an Models: Guo Jia

Xi'an continues as a breeding ground for potential supermodels. The latest example is our new discovery and head-turner Guo Jia, who will be craning necks when she appears on local fashion magazines this year. We are proud of having her onboard.

This university student has been thrust onto the fashion stage in the past couple of months and is really making an impact, becoming a new favorite ND Model! Since winning a model contest in Hangzhou last year, 1,78m Guo Jia will ...

Kidnapped for speaking out
A reporter with the German TV station Zweites Deutsches Fernsehen (ZDF) was interviewing a young man in China about the newspaper censorship controversy, when, immediately after the interview, a team of plainclothes Chinese police picked up the man like a slab of meat and threw him into the back of...

Emergency Bricks in Buses in Xi'an
Due to terrible experiences with the bus catastrophe in Chengdu, Xi'an bus lines will now include "emergency bricks" in every bus. They are installed in case of emergencies such as  fire or other substantial threats, to faciliate the escape. Those buses with air-conditioners are already... Click here to read the full story!
Reality Check
These days I never seem to have nearly as much time as I used to to randomly drift around the internet, catching up with some of the quality blogs that are out there. Since I’m no longer doing a desk job here in Xi'an like I was in HK, the temptation to waste an hour or three of the day never... Click here to read the full story!
International is what?
What are the criteria in China used for a company to be allowed to term the phrase “International” within the title of their business, eg International Hotel. It seems apparent to me that this is a clever deux started by someone, with an idea that far stretches meeting demands of... Click here to read the full story!
Xi’an Underground Notes
Sometimes we like to think of the past in a deluded nostalgic way that just takes the good and conveniently leaves out the bad. My memories of my 7+ years in Xi’an are inevitably littered with omissions and thought of in the way an American sees a Norman Rockwell Christmas poster. But I do...

Pretty Bubbles in the Air
My wife came to me at the end of Spring Festival this year and exclaimed, “I think we should buy another house.” We talked it over for a bit and I agreed to go shop around and see what was out there. I was against the idea, for reasons I will get into later, but went along anyway... Click here to read the full story!
Finding work in China
I’ve had 4 people call me about working with SRI or information about new jobs elsewhere, two people talked with me about starting their own companies and a couple others talk with me about networking for other work options. I also met in the airport a new couple just moving over to SZ for... Click here to read the full story!
Have you eaten yet?
So, I was back in China last week, and thought I’d put in a goodwill visit to the old office - you know, to say Hi, how’s it going, oh, and if you have any spare jobs going in Xi'an etc etc… A few excited faces from behind the brain-numbing draw of Excel documents and the...

Sie sollen nicht!
Letztens im chinesisch Unterricht wollte ich wieder was für den Alltag lernen. Ich wollte nämlich wissen, wie ich sagen kann: sie sollen hier nicht rauchen. Meine Lehrerin machte eine Denkpause und versuchte den Hintergrund meiner Frage zu verstehen. Geduldig erzählte ich ihr, meine Erfahrung... Click here to read the full story!

Un día triste
No ayudó mucho el levantarse, mirar la prensa y descubrir que se había muerto en Huesca un señor que se llamaba igual que yo (aunque no es pariente mío, creo). Tampoco que nos dejara hoy uno de los más grandes del pop español, Antonio Vega. De sol, de espiga y deseo, son tus manos en mi... Click here to read the full story!
John Beddoe
John Beddoe is one of those exceptional expats who is absolutely worth to be mentioned.  He is, due to his professional obligations in his home country Australia, an irregular visitor of Xi'an yet. But even so, he always looks forward to come back to Xi'an and enjoys the teaching classes... Click here to read the full story!
Textile City Art District
Much like Beijing 798 and Shanghai 1933, Xi'an has an art district called Textile town. The district is not an actual town but derives its name from the many textile factories built there since the 1950s. Xi’an Textile City Arts District is situated at Textile City in east Xi’an, which... Click here to read the full story!

The Chinese
This is a fantastic book. Honestly, I only have two minor issues with Jasper’s Becker’s book, The Chinese. First, it is ten years old and I really want an update. If you think that ten years could not be nearly long enough to date a book on populations within a country than you haven... Click here to read the full story!
Terracotta Warriors
Today we visited the tomb and mausoleum of Emperor Jing of Han, which is a comfortable 90 minutes or so from our accommodation in Xi'an. The tombs were built between 153 and 126 BC, and there are many other tombs in the vicinity, of other Han emperors, as well as of less prestigious personages,... Click here to read the full story!
Special: Miranda Ko
Ko was born in Hong Kong to parents of Chinese descents. Her early years spent in the trendy yet conservative region imposed significant influence on her personal style, work ethics and morals.
