This chinese guy wrote my girlfriend’s name (Ma), a heart and my name (Ale) using tiny sponges. Each letter has a different shape. Quite interesting technique…

Demand grows for Chinese fake art

On January 27, 2012, in Chinese Art, by admin

China’s wealthy elite have for many years ndeveloped a taste for Western food, wine and culture.

And demand for re-creations of classical European works of art has been steadily rising.

But for the workers painting the fakes, it’s all about bringing industrial efficiency to their art.

How to write my name in Chinese Calligraphy?

On January 24, 2012, in Chinese Art, by admin

I’m trying to figure out how to write my Chinese name which in English is

Mun Kit Wong

Wong=family name
Mun and Kit are my Given names
Awesome thanks.

Yes it is Cantonese, and the translation you’ve got for Mun Kit is what I’ve managed to come up with thanks, although my character for Wong is different

Are the names Mun Kit based on Cantonese or Mandarin as spoken language? It sounds like Cantonese-based to me, so I’ll assume that for now:

Wong = 王 (same character in both traditional and simplified form)
Mun Kit = 文傑 (traditional form) / 文杰 (simplified form)

This would be the most likely name that I can think of.

* Update *

Ah, so your surname is of this Wong? –> 黄


I think you need a Chinese person to help you find what you need in China, and I know a website can provide the service , the service is called "Person to Person" , through the service you just like engage a "agent" in China to help you to find what you need in China.


I am interested in Northern Styles more than Southern, but if you know the one for the south tell me

There is no best style.

Your size, body type and sex have nothing to do with the style you want to choose. People that think that your size and body type determine the style know little to nothing about martial arts

Most people will tell you there style is the best or they heard such and such is a great style,
The style is not important, what matters is how good your instructor is and how you train. The style is secondary, they all have there pro’s and con’s there are no superior styles.
If you have an instructor that can’t teach you how to fight, regardless of the style, what good would it do you?

Choose a school with a good instructor in the end that’s all that matters, that and how you train.
Its the person that has the ability to fight not the style


I am in the UK and wish to purchase a jade bangle from the happy store

Beginning early this year, google made some changes to their search ranking,   in the name of providing more relevant search results for it’s users, google engineers published blog post which indicated there were 11.8% organic search results will be affected, put it this way, almost 12% of google search results are useless or of low quality. Google started this change almost one year ago, and recently I see some of my ranks were lowered considerably, but almost all the ranks promoted by articles and blog posts were not affected, and a few of them even gained a few positions, it’s almost a sure thing that plain link building loses all it’s attraction, at least in the eye of google.

What is old way of link building any way? There are a lot of SEO company out there are doing this, they put your links on websites which only exist for holding links, the content on those sites will never be updated, almost all of them are garbage, we call these sites link spamming sites. New google algorithm most likely will punish these link spammers,  all the links on those websites will have the same fate.  

Examples will be great for explanation. When I got into online marketing long time ago, I started with this keyword, Tie Down, of course with old way of link building, a lot of sites I used had too many links, and the worst thing is that those sites are linking sites only and had no content, not even crap content. I would give credit where credit is due, this linking strategy worked, lately the keyword link stayed on the first page for a while, the party was over when google updated it’s algorithm. Here is another keyword, chain puller , we put the link in relevant context, not too many plain links have been built, now we have really good ranking for this keyword. Now contextual links win the battle, then what? In fact the only thing matters here is content, so if you create great content, your rank will improve over time, since search engines are another kind of readers. It’s never too late to build good blogs for business purpose, take a look at this blog, sue havens toy , I build it as a hobby and kept adding good or mediocre content, the result? I got nice ranking for a few realy nice keywords now. As we can see, quality blog marketing is much better than plain link building. Now imagine you have your own blog network, for instance Grade 70 Chains, you will have the power to push any sites up in search engines.

At the end of day all you have to do is to create quality content, share the content with people, and put your keywords in the context you’re good to go, your effort will reward you handsomely in the end. Persistence and patience are the keys to success, nothing will automatically improve overnight, i.e., selling online or improve your search rankings, keep writing, publishing, sharing and creating, you will see the day of success. When publisinh articles, I prefer ezine, google will index a new article on ezine promptly, of course your posts on some blogs will be indexed real fast as well, let look at some aticles or posts which are published and indexed, have a taste of this one, Grade 70 Chains, good writing, interesting content, indexed and cached, this article serves it’s purpose well.

By the way, we have hot social media now, no one can afford to not using them. The Twitter tools is a wordpress plugin, you can install it, get a twitter account and API keys, configure your twitter tools prpperly, you should choose to post a tweet for every new post, it’s simple and elegant, no one should miss this tool out.

I’ve already thought about Tattoo parlors, but most of them wouldnt want to pay for a membership… any ideas?

Students +of+ calligraphy might be interested. I have heard that even Chinese kids are losing the ability to make the pictographs because of the prevalence of the computer in Chinese society today. Ditto in Japan. Maybe you should talk to someone at Google’s Chinese subsidiary, or at your nearest city’s Chinese Embassy.
