For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

Each issue consisted of local news and the hottest key words searched by millions of Chinese on Baidu.com will be posted on every Friday night or Saturday morning.

Though I started with the idea of writing a recommendation on the 20 best Chinese movies in my own eyes, the article turns out to become an introduction to hundreds of thousands of Chinese people’s preference on a website named douban.com, the most popular IMDb-like website in simplified Chinese. With over half of my choices differing from the ones voted by populous douban.com users, I realized that personal choices vary, but mass appeal tells us some cultural, socialogic, aesthetic……Continue

Yes,that is me . Thank you very much!

We might also attend Gaia's Indian dinner at the world life club on Saturday night (if we don't have to attend a last minute event at school), so may be see you on Saturday. Take care.
Thanks for the friend request. Glad to oblige. Let me know when you are free for tea/lunch/dinner to exchange ideas about teaching and writing. I am a man of great curiosity so I could learn more about Chinese people, history, and culture from you. Interested in things Americana? I'll try to answer before returning to the States in August. Let's exchange cell numbers, if you like. There must be a way to share numbers that is not so public.
