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 ...

Old Man for Sale
An aged man was seen a short while ago selling himself near the Dongguan Baxian An (That's the Temple of the "Eight Immortals", 八仙庵) in Xi'an. He walked around the area with 2 selfmade cardboards attached to his body. The cardboard on his back reads “I am selling myself, for... Click here to read the full story!
High-Speed-Rails
A new dedicated 968-kilometer high-speed rail line linking Wuhan, in the heart of central China, to Guangzhou, on the southeastern coast is coming.

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!
China - Between Past and Future
China is a country endowed with a colorful history. Owning deeply engrained traditions that few of it's population stray from it is a country that is hard to decipher for the outsider. Often what is visible is only a fraction of what exists. China is a seemingly never ending tangle of... Click here to read the full story!
The Voices of Time
That's the title of one of the texts in the extensive reading book I was issued last term.

Nightlife Popularity Charts
Xi'an is a city with a long past and in the process of finding a new direction between the old way of life and the brightness of the modern world but the most striking contrast between the two is the nightlife in Xi'an.

Chinese Sandwiches
Food is natural, but cookery is a human invention, a system imposed upon the raw ingredients of plant and animal that is ancient yet constantly evolving. Of course, one can just eat and enjoy, but there are so many interesting questions to ponder. For example, why does the chinese dish called... Click here to read the full story!

ND Godfather?
We are sometimes a little suprised of incoming emails. Folks who actually work or used to work for similiar certain parties in Xi'an tend to send us their observations, remarks, rants and inside info about other groups. Great, nothing wrong with that.

Dum mi ekloĝis en Nankino, miaj usonaj gefamilianoj ne tute komprenis, kial mi volus translokiĝi al ĉi tie. Plejparte por usonanoj estas la problemo je la medio kaj tuta ekonomia sistemo ĉi tie.

My visit to Xi'an
It must be depressing living in a city like this, at least it would be for me--Xi'an would be one of the last cities I want to move to. It seems the environment of Xi'an has been badly polluted, and the climate isn't that good. Most of the time, the sky is grey, and the pollution is... Click here to read the full story!
Xi'an Models: Rebecca Li
She was on our list of future ND Models for months and finally arrives today.
