“You had bought a flat directly from the HDB flat 15 years ago, and then you’d later sold it - therefore you cannot rent any flat from the HDB anymore. You’ve been disqualified….To add insult to injury, the government says that actually, you prefer to be homeless.”
“For any foreigners out there who jump queues in China like so many Chinese peasants, I give you a warning. If you do it in my line, I will call you out, force you to the back of the line.”.
“I’ve dealt with one court case involving a homeless man in Tokyo, and he kept the registered address of his family outside the city (despite the fact that his family had disowned him). Is that much better? What alternative does a homeless person in Japan have?”
Would you eat at a restaurant named ‘Turd Baby?’

Hi Asia Pundit,
I’ve been reading dipping in and out of your blog for a while for a while, and now that I’ve got my own Beijing site I’ve added a link to it, which you can find at http://www.beijingmadeeasy.com/beijing-links/blogs
I was wondering if you would check out our site and consider adding a link to us. The site is called Beijing Made Easy, (www.beijingmadeeasy.com) it’s an online Beijing travel guide covering Beijing attractions and Chinese culture from the Forbidden City to Beijing duck, Beijing hotels, China flights, tours and more.
Thanks for your time
Beijing Made Easy
