Getting A Little Personal
I work in an office with mostly female bosses and co-workers, so when there's not much going on, things tend to degenerate into 2nd-grade schoolgirl antics (despite the fact that, at 21, I'm the youngest person here). I'd noticed that three of the "girls" were sitting at the computer, reading and laughing. So, naturally, I wanted to know what was going on. It turns out they were reading personal ads posted looking for Chinese women both from within and without China. After reading some of them myself, I find themamazing in their range from the profound to the plain ridiculous. It spans the whole human spectrum. From men who just want to be paid for marrying a girl in return for a U.S. visa, to men who are truly seeking soul mates - and everything in between. It's phenomenal. If you're ever bored or need a pick-me-up, I highly recommend reading the personals on,, and Craigslist - China (among others). It's sure to provide twice the cross-cultural entertainment of your run-of-the-mill singles classifieds ad with half the fat!

THE WILD WILD EAST: Everything you never knew you didn't know about life on the other side.
In China, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups. The Chinese, who call this land "home," and the expats who migrate here. My name is Rachel. I am an expat. These are my stories.

A Brief Disclaimer:
This is a satirical site intended for the entertainment of an online audience. None of the features on this site are real (except in my own distorted view of reality), nor are they intended to harm the subjects mentioned. This site uses fictional names in all its stories, except in cases when public figures are being satirized or when I choose to use this site as a platform for someone's public humiliation (usually my own). Any other use of real names is accidental and coincidental (or purposeful, but with good reason).

Despite the trivial nature of my random daily (sometimes weekly) musings, I hope you enjoy your stay at my site. If there is anything you need, don't hesitate to ring up the concierge, because I just travel in style like that. Have a pleasant stay and I hope that you will come see us again soon!
