Hotel check in Ningbo

Earlier today my Chinese colleague and myself checked into the Lisi hotel in Ningbo. When the receptionist issued to room keys I saw that my room was number 1310. Jokingly I said to my colleague that I could not stay in this room because the number 13 is unlucky in England, she said no worries because its not unlucky in China.

She then went on to say that unluckiest room number is Chinese is 914. Apparently this means that you are soon going to die. Just heads up avoid this room number at all costs!

Chinese Rabbit

This was my ride to work this morning. It’s a three wheel vehicle called in Chinese a ‘rabbit’ We managed to get 5 people inside albeit uncomfortably. The ‘rabbit’ did it’s job though and we all arrived safely.

 
I was really impressed with the modification to the sun roof. There were plastic bottles with the bottoms cut out to direct the breeze directly on to the front seats. Chinese engineering at it’s best!

Chinese high speed trains

During my last business trip to China I was lucky enough to ride on the new Chinese high speed train line. It was an awesome experience with the train travelling at over 300 Kmph. The amazing thing is that you do not feel like you are moving because it is very smooth. The speed cut down a 4 hour journey to 90 min’s, so I will definitely use it again.

Dalai Lama quote

“Man, because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived.”
