brittneywong: Oh my god, I love this article! 冰与火之歌 for the win!
While my Chinese teacher admits that 冬天来了 is correct, she actually prefers 凛冬将至, as it's much shmancier sounding.
Also I have to add in the Chinese nickname for Sansa, which is 三傻 (or sansha, literally meaning three stupid), in honor of her annoying stupidity during the first few seasons. My favorite though is Jon Snow's nickname: 囧恩 (or jiong'en), given to him because he always makes the 囧 face, hahaha. Baidu Image-ing 囧恩 is pretty fun. :) Can't wait for season five!
femmefauxpas: Hi @earth2jo, the movie is in Chinese and doesn't have English subtitles, though we quite enjoy Chinese language movies that capture this much so wonderfully. We definitely recommend it! - CW Web Editor
earth2jo: No Megabox only have it in Chinese, no English subtitles. I haven't been able to find it with English subtitles at any theater in Beijing, but I just thought you might looked into that since you're reviewing it for an English language website.

Thanks for your comment. I am the reviewer, as well as the nightlife editor for City Weekend. When I went to NBeer Sanlitun, I engaged the staff (in Chinese) about the beers, inquiring whether they were all made in-house or guest taps. They were not able to answer, and the menu only had the beer names, no sign of whether they were made by other breweries or not (unlike the NBeer in Huguosi). In addition to the Baby IPA, I sampled the oyster stout, jasmine beer, and smoked porter. I did not find that any of them particularly well-made, especially given the quality of other craft beers brewed in Beijing (and elsewhere in China). They were alternately flat, improperly refrigerated, or just not brewed well. I've tried the beers by Master Gao, Harvest, Boxing Cat, The Brew, Shanghai Brewery, etc. as well as many of the Beijing brewers' offerings (including Great Leap, Slow Boat, Tipsy Face, Panda, Lark's, and Homebrew Society beers) in my years here, and again, found the beer on tap, when I went to NBeer Sanlitun, sorely lacking. I hope this illuminates the reasoning behind my review.
jrtimmer: My name is Jon Timmerman and work for NBeer Sanlitun and I'd like to point out that you seemed to have not gotten you facts straight. We don't just pour NB Beer, we also pour Master Gao, Harvest, and other made in China breweries. Secondly, The Baby IPA is made by Master Gao, and is called Baby because it is a lighter IPA tailored to Chinese palates. Both NB and Master Gao enjoy great reputations with both Chinese and western beer geeks. Also if you only tried one beer, how you can judge the quality of the entire brewing company, maybe that beer was an experiment and they were just trying to see what works (which is common among craft brewers).
ekko: I want koala to speak like Wil Smith from MIB because then he would be super cool and rap for us, plus dance and make jokes. In any crazy situation in Beijing he'd be the one to just turn up and ask "is there anybody here who is not an alien?" also able to Reprogram everyone's memory "Uh...ladies and gentlemen, if you will, look right here." [koala holds up the Neuralizer and flashes the crowd]. Boom "Now that's what I'm talking about".
chili: Zooey Deschanel. This koala is cute and quirky, a bit socially-awkward (she's a marsupial but likes to consider herself as one of the bears, but the bears look at her suspiciously) and very sweet-natured. She marches to her own rhythm but will sometimes do anything for a cuddle and a handful of eucalyptus leaves. When she looks at you, she looks right into your soul, and when she listens to you, those furry ears are focused on every word you say, and she can make you forget the world’s falling apart around you. I can hear Zooey the Koala say, “I love you, so of course you love me, too.”, “I can hang off this tree with one paw. Wanna see?”, and “You’ve got a cute nose. But mine’s cuter.”
mattaya: Arnold Schwarzenneger- I would like to hear the Koala Bear say some of his classic lines such as "I'm going to pump you up", "I'll be back","Consider this a divorce","Hasta la vista baby","If it bleeds, we can kill it", "I'm not into politics, I'm into survival", "No more complaining. No more Mr. Kimble, I have to go the bathroom. Nothing! There IS no bathroom!" "You're a funny guy, Sully. I like you. That's why I'm going to kill you last." "Put that cookie down. Now!" "I'm no mercenary. Nobody pays me. And if I think somebody owes me something, I take it." "This hero stuff has its limits." "We're cool, we're badasses, blah, blah, blah." "Oh, you think you're bad, huh? You're a fucking choir boy compared to me! A CHOIR BOY!" "My body. MY choice!"
kesang: This one is easy, The Singaporean Pau (baozi) diet. Basically all you can eat is Dumplings and clear soup. In the beginning its easy as i always have loved pau, however soon the road side hawkers selling Nasi-goreng, Nasi-Lemak or anything with Nasi in its name starts resembling Eve tempting you to take a bite. Gradually you realize why rice is considered the Staple dish here.
