Hello, good morning from Shunyi for Thursday, April first. Actually, we thought long and hard about releasing a post today given that it is also April Fool’s Day. The tile of today’s short article: “Why are Chinese spending big money on empty bottles” is also likely to be thought of as a joke. However, itContinue reading “Why are Chinese spending big on empty bottles?”

Start of March, and the “working” New Year of the OX is probably now almost back to normal. Most people who went away for their Spring Festival came back around a week ago after the statuary 7 days. Many others tacked an extra few days onto the event.
Hello, we don’t have a category for “art or creativity” [maybe we should?] so we will list this under technology. The event is a little old now, back in 2020, but was only recently confirmed and released as an article by the Guinness Book of Records last week – Feb 11th 2021.

We have, on a few occasions, written about China’s Singles Day or Double Eleven shopping festivals. One month on from 2020’s Singles day, today’s article takes a sort of behind the scenes look at some more numbers. Those behind Alibaba’s side of the 11/11 extravaganza.
