The street with no name - but with a lot of rubbish

Somewhere in China - only 4th tier City - after dinner - all the boxes on the street - why no rubbish bins ? Easy - because if there would be any (mainly) metal rubbish bins they would not survive 1 night. Because they will be stolen by gangs who will sell it to scrap metal dealers.
Actually this is just very little at that evening - I have seen that street double or triple with rubbish. Cheers !

A little rain - big chaos

It was just a little rain - nothing serious - but the streets are flooded - the traffic is a mess - the picture was taken when the worst was over already.

Coming back to grandpa Wen

China Probes Wen’s Family Wealth After NYT Story, SCMP Says

China began a probe of Premier Wen Jiabao’s wealth at his request after the New York Times reported his relatives had amassed at least $2.7 billion of assets, the South China Morning Post reported today.
The premier called for a formal inquiry in a letter to the Communist Party’s Politburo Standing Committee, of which he is a member, the newspaper said, citing unidentified people. Conservative party elders who dislike Wen’s more liberal stance have called on him to explain the New York Times’s reporting, the sources said, according to the South China Morning Post.
The Times story on Wen’s family wealth cited corporate and regulatory records and unidentified people familiar with the family’s investments. Among the assets was a holding in the name of Wen’s mother, Yang Zhiyun, in Ping An Insurance Co. that was valued at $120 million in 2007, the Times reported.
A faxed request for comment to the Chinese foreign ministry’s news department wasn’t immediately answered. On Oct. 29, the foreign ministry confirmed Wen’s family had lawyers issue a statement responding to the Times story and suggested the report was a bid to provoke instability. The South China Morning Post had reported that lawyers representing Wen’s family issued a statement disputing some of the Times story.

Surely all is under cover - dont worry Wen - your term will be over soon & your family will treat you nicely !

What happens to rejected products in China?

This one is from here Renaud Anjoran - Good blog !

See the photos & read - I copy / pasted the whole thing here:
In China, a conscious effort is made to avoid wasting anything. For example, they will try to eat all organs of an animal.
This good habit naturally made its way in the manufacturing industry:
  • There are some defects? Let’s just mix them with the good products, to avoid being caught.
  • The entire batch is rejected by a customer? Let’s try to sell it to another one, or to local shops.
In other words, don’t expect your Chinese suppliers to destroy a production that you have refused. They will never accept to take that kind of loss. They will try to do something else with it.
The designs were licensed and bear your brand name? So what?
The products are actually unsafe and should not be used by anybody? Who are you to judge that?
On Saturday I found a good example. Something weird was going on, in the fisherman’s wharf of Shekou:
Here is what I saw:
  1. The cans contained powder milk.
  2. Every single can’s lid had already been punched before getting to this place.
  3. The workers opened the lid fully, and others emptied the cans inside large bags.
These cans had clearly been rejected. That port is very close to Hong Kong, so one can imagine many scenarios.
What will they do with all this milk powder? I hope they feed pigs with it, but I am afraid they re-package it in a dirty factory and re-sell it in stores…
Milk powder has been suspect in the eyes of most Chinese since the Sanlu scandal of 2008. Tons of milk are purchased in Hong Kong and brought to the mainland every month.
Old habits die hard…
Cheers & have a nice NATIONAL CONGRESS !
