chinaSMACK Interview In City Weekend

Merry Christmas, everyone.

Will it snow again in Shanghai this winter like last year?

Jessica Beaton recently interviewed me for City Weekend, a cool magazine in Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou. The interview is available on their website right now, and I think it will appear in the paper magazine soon too.

They also have an interview with Will Moss from Imagethief, another good English blog about China. Unfortunately, I do not always understand his writing because my English is not good enough. However, many people tell me he is a very funny guy.

Voting for the 2008 China Blog Awards will end in a few days on 31 December. Right now, although chinaSMACK is second place, it is very far behind another website named “Wo Shi Laowai, Wo Pa Shui.” That website has 418 votes but we only have 267. I did not realize each person can vote once every day (24 hours) until recently. Oh well. No matter what, thank you everyone for voting for us.

I hope everyone will have happy holidays and of course, thank you for your support.

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
