They can be cute, they can be annoying, but they always make us laugh – happy children’s day!

It’s celebrate across China on June 1st with primary school children enjoying a day off from studying to be little emperors and empresses. Common activities would be a day out in the park, perhaps a trip to the cinema, or enjoying their favourite meal.

今天是属于可爱小朋友的节日!你的今日计划是什么呢?草地野餐,影院观影,还是美餐一顿?

In celebration of children’s day here are six hilariously inappropriate kid’s drawings that remind us just how funny and innocent they can be – aww!

以下是一些既可爱有时又可恶的小朋友杰作!希望我们也能保持童真和快乐!

Mum likes drinking “酒鬼妈妈”

This girl was asked to write one sentence about a family member and draw a picture about it – well she definitely completed the assignment! I’m sure mum wasn’t too happy with the whole teaching department knowing about her favourite hobby!

当作业为画一位家人的日常图时,一位小女孩完美完成任务。就是不知道她妈妈看到这幅画不知道该哭还是该笑。

I Come in Peace

Definitely an A+ for creative awareness as this kid has nailed his drawing of Buzz Lightyear, they just need some practice with the spelling!

创造力满分!不过…多练练拼写吧…

First drawing of Mum 第一次画妈妈

kids3

The first drawing of mum by a 5-year-old and we really hope the first of many in a collection of fart pictures – this kid is going places!

一位五岁的小孩第一次画的妈妈。只能说了不起!

It’s a whistle 口哨

kids4
A very talented 13-year-old that just needs some practice drawing whistles the right size!

这位13岁的小孩应该要多多练习口哨正确的尺寸哦。

She appreciates her hard-working mum!

感谢努力的妈妈

kids5

This little girl wanted everyone to know how hard her mum works in the winter months – selling snow shovels at Home Depot!

小女孩画的是大冬天妈妈努力卖雪铲的样子。

This kid isn’t too fond of the babysitter

不想带娃的小孩

kids6

We think this babysitter should find a new kid to babysit that will appreciate her a bit more. Valerie, get out while you still can!

也许应该找另一位来照看小Valerie。Valerie快逃。

Which picture was your favourite? Let us know in the comments!

Wishing all the parents a very happy children’s day with your little munchkins!

哪一张是你的最爱呢?在评论区告诉我们!祝所有人儿童节快乐!

After almost two decades of anticipation, the Friends reunion of our dreams is going to become a reality.

friends2 friends3

The Friends reunion, called “The One Where They Get Back Together,” starts streaming on HBO Max today ! But since its service is not available here, we can watch it on Youku, Tencent and Aiqiyi instead.(VIP required)

Over the years, there have been many rankings of favorite American TV shows on the Chinese Internet. Friends is always at the top of the list. One might start to wonder, Why is F.R.I.E.N.D.S. so Popular in China?

New York City maybe 7,000 miles from China, but the lives of Chandler, Monica, Ross, Joey, Rachel, and Phoebe hold a dear place in the hearts of the Chinese millennials. 

In China, F.R.I.E.N.D.S is known as a variety of Chinese titles- most notably “老友记” (lǎo yǒu jì or “Chronicle of Old Friends”) and “六人行” (liù rén xíng or “The Ways of Six People”). The show, however, has never been aired on Chinese television networks, nor approved for distribution by Chinese censors.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S arrived in China on the heels of then-President Deng Xiaoping’s “Reform and Opening”. Reform and Opening brought China a barrage of American technology, trade, businesses and, most importantly, sitcoms to China. China’s lax copyright infringement laws also made this era a golden age of piracy– with pirated DVDs sold in every major city. You could pop into just about any video store and find the latest season of F.R.I.E.N.D.S, albeit with sloppy and inaccurate subtitles. Then, the rise of the Internet gave Chinese millennials greater access to non-syndicated content. 

Because of this, “老友记” has found a special place among Chinese millennials. On Douban (a Chinese television review site) the first season of F.R.I.E.N.D.S has a score of  9.6 out of 10, with glowing reviews from many viewers. 

Maybe life is also about being sincere and authentic. It is about being honest to the people around you. And keeping it all together, even when it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year. 

By the way ,There is a Friends-themed cafe in Shanghai with Joey’s famous quote How you doin’ printed on the tissue, the wifi password is I love Racheland the owner’s name is Gunther. Go check it out if you like.

Would You Change Your Name for Free Food?

改名可换取免费食物,你愿意吗?

name1

A strange question, yes, but one that some residents of Taiwan found themselves asking recently – and for a (slightly worryingly) large number, the answer was a resounding yes.

确实是一个奇怪的问题,但是部分台湾居民的回答是:愿意。

It all started when Japanese restaurant chain Sushiro kicked off a promotional campaign promising free food to anyone named ‘gui yu’, which translates to ‘salmon’. They also offered 50% discounts to anyone with a similar-sounding name, and 10% to diners with one homophonic character in their name.

一切要从一家叫寿司郎的日式餐厅说起,他们为名叫“鲑鱼”的客人免单,同音可享5折优惠,单字同音可享9折优惠。

A branch of Sushiro

On day one of the two-day promotion, Sushiro roped in an impressive 1,000 participants in the offer – around 30 of whom were eligible for free food for themselves and their whole table.

在活动第一天,寿司郎接待了近1000名客人,其中约有30人可享受免单。

But Sushiro wasn’t the only business that saw an influx of demand on the launching of their offer. Household registration offices were flooded with applications from Taiwanese locals requesting to change their name to – you guessed it – salmon.

其他餐厅为了流量也纷纷效仿推出相似活动。于是各地的户籍登记处收到了大量当地人的改名申请,他们想把自己的名字改成——没错——鲑鱼。

More than 20 people filled in the application form for their fishy new moniker in Taipei alone, with plenty more also taking the bait elsewhere in Taiwan. In Taichung, a student changed her name from ‘Kuo’ to ‘Kuo Salmon Rice Bowl’ so she could treat her friends, while two other fish fanatics got through over 3,000 RMB’s worth of sushi.

仅在台北就有20多人提交改名申请表,其他地方也有人效仿。在台中,一个学生把名字从“ kuo”改成了“ kuo 鲑鱼饭” ,这样她就可以免费请客,而另外两人则吃掉了价值3000元的寿司。

name3

Another over-enthusiastic applicant set a new record for the longest name, changing his name to the 36-character title ‘Chen loves Taiwan, abalone, tuna, salmon, snow crab, sea urchin, scallop, lobster and beef, Mayfull, Palais de Chine, Regent, Hilton, Caesar Park, Hotel Royal’. Quite the mouthful.

其中一位改名申请者甚至创造了最长姓名的记录,他改名为:陈热爱台湾鲍鱼金枪鱼三文鱼雪蟹海胆扇贝龙虾牛肉美福中国宫殿摄政王希尔顿凯撒公园皇家酒店。蛮拗口的。

name4

Such was the increase in demand for name changes, that the Ministry of the Interior had to remind citizens that they’re legally allowed to change their name three times – an important reminder for one particular participant, who discovered that his mum had already changed his name twice as a baby.

更改姓名的人越来越来,以至于相关部门不得不提醒市民,根据法律可以改三次姓名——这对于某些参与者来说是个重要的提醒,因为有的人发现自己的母亲在其婴儿时期已经改过两次姓名了。

P.S. please don’t get any ideas – we’d be honoured if any of you changed your name to Sherpa’s, but we’re not promising any free food!

另外,请不要有任何想法!如果有人想改名为食派士,我们会感到非常荣幸,但我们不能保证提供免费食物哦!

The 24th Shanghai International Film Festival (SIFF) will kick off in less than one month. As the film lineup for panorama has been announced, cinemas for these films and their projection effect are of great concern to the majority of fans. This afternoon, the 24th SIFF Panorama Cinemas Mobilization Meeting and Security Services Technology Training Session was convened, releasing the list of panorama cinemas, where a total of 40 cinemas around the city were included. 

Boasting 6 high-tech approaches for enhancing viewing experience, these cinemas extend from the central city of Shanghai to the five “new cities” in its suburbs (Jiading, Qingpu, Songjiang, Fengxian and Nanhui), including the Huangpu Theatre, a place of great historical significance where our national anthem was played for the first time.

Here’s the list of Panorama Cinemas for 24th SIFF:
