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.
limgina: Addictive behavior has an emotional basis. Unresolved emotions lead to a pattern of abuse and the abuse, in and of itself, creates a deepening anxiety which leads to increased use of the addictive substance. You can visit our site : http://www.chiangmaiaddictionfoundation.com/
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.
jonjonphenomenon: I've been overweight nearly my entire life. From about sixth grade in elementary school to my late twentie, I've fluctuated back and forth from chunky to pretty obese. So you can bet, through the years, I've tried all kinds of diets - everything from the "Jared Subway diet"(which made me not want to look at another Subway sandwich for at least a year) to the "Paleo Diet" (which seemed awesome at first because you get to eat lots of meat, but not getting to eat any carbs at all was a deal breaker).
However, the weirdest diet was one that my wife suggested because she read in a magazine article that Heidi Klum swears by it. It's called the Apple Cider Vinegar diet. Before every meal I had to drink 2 tsp. of apple cider vinegar. According to my wife the apple and vinegar were supposed to create a fat burning effect and increase my metabolism. However, the only thing I felt it was doing was leaving a nasty aftertaste in my mouth and making the food I ate taste horrible! So I gave up on that diet about a week later.
It wasn't until my son was born and I held him in my arms that I finally had the motivation and drive to lose weight so that I could be more active with him. I'm happy to say that after 5 years of lots of cardio, some weight training and eating well-proportioned, healthy meals I've gone from over 198 lbs. to a svelte 175 lbs. In the end the diet that worked for me was the "Love-somebody-so-much-that-you're-willing-to-make-a-drastic-change-in-your-life Diet".
scienceteacher: Oh pen the pages are empty and all the right words are long gone, Fill in the open spaces and write me a strong one. Oh book mark me a page to remember, And I'll keep myself busy up and until November.
