Key currency RMB? E-mail

Written by ND
China wants to get away from the dollar. The People's Republic suggested a new currency for the world. The new currency is to be driven and supervised - according to the Chinese head of the Central Bank - by the International Monetary Fund (IMF). This international currency should replace the US Dollar as the dominant currency in the world, explained the Central Bank of China CEO ZHOU XIAOCHUAN.

This way, the actions of independent monetary systems will cease to influence global currency trends. A good example of such a monetary system would be the US dollar, which is now at the center of the current global financial crisis. China repeatedly expressed a great concern  about the decline of U.S. currency, which would affect their dollar reserves.

Thoughts on Xi’an Snacks E-mail

For natives and outlanders, lots of snacks in Xi’an cannot be more delicious. Nevertheless, once out of the city, the same food with the same taste can hardly be found anywhere. Although people may happen to see Liangpi, Mutton Paomo, or Roujiamo somewhere else, the taste differs from the original in thousands ways.

However, catering businessmen from the south of China, who have good business sense, have sold their local snacks in chain stores everywhere in the country. The ubiquitous Nutritious Food from Sha County of Fu Jian stores in Xi’an serve as a good model for the local snack sellers.

Why haven’t Xi’an snacks, renowned for its diversity and special flavor, been well-promoted and been better known by the outside world?

Dogs’ Life in Xi’an E-mail

Written by Hou Jing
It is about 8 in the evening, after supper. In a residence community or in the less crowded streets in Xi’an, there are usually people walking leisurely with their dogs, big or small. Some of them meet frequently so their pets become buddies as well. These dog lovers talk about the funny things their dogs did and exchange information about raising them. Once in a while, something unpleasant occurs—a dog fight. So, either owner will have to take his baby away and keep walking.

The above is a common scene of night life in the city. With a rising living standard and a greater yearning for companion, the number of dog owners hikes. Just like any other place in the world, people regard their dearest doggies as friend, child, lover or everything. The interesting part is that in Xi’an most dog owners are either senior or young people in their 20s. The middle-aged are rare, possibly because they are busy striving for a better life.
