Keep burglars out. With butter.
Because the repair costs of their broken video surveillance system were too high to bare, the management of Mingdemen Residence Area in Xi'an had an unusual idea to prevent burglars of entering the houses.

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.

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.
