I’m probably going to burn through a bunch of instapaper articles during my upcoming trip, so I’d better blog my backlog first:

PR for the PRC
An (unsurprising) story of being an (English) transcriber for the People’s Republic of China. Guess what, things are always positive.

Love you and leave you
This article is the story of (hundred of) millions of parents in China who leave their young kids behind to go to the big city. No, not for the bright lights, but to make enough money to raise their kids! It is a sad story, until I remembered that people from HK having been doing the reverse of this for last few decades!

The Final Days of Favre
The tragic story of Brett Favre?

The Forger’s Story
Yet another story, this one is of an art forger. He doesn’t do it for the money or fraud!
