BRIEFING - Ningbo Guide

April and the beginning of May were big
months for us at Ningbo Guide. The city is
starting to warm up and people are coming out
ready for summer to start.
At the beginning of the month, we took a
small crew to run the Pyonyang Marathon in
North Korea. That sort of set the tone for what
the month was going to be like. We'll have
complete coverage of the excellent and surreal
event in next month's magazine.
Closer to home, we got everything together
for Ningbo's first Spring Block Party. None
of that would have been possible without
our friends at S&D Design and J&M Tattoo.
Eveyone pulled together to pull off a great
party to kick off the summer season. Complete
with homemade craft beer, authentic tacos,
chili, and hot dogs, plenty of sunshine and
great people, we couldn't have asked for a
better party. If that wasn't enough, taking a
crew of people on mini-parade complete with
DJ and sound system on wheels, it was an
excellent walk to Bad Monkey where the after
party went all night.
It was also a huge month for being healthy in
Ningbo. It's good to cleanse out some of that
party and exercise has to be one of the best
ways to do it. You could go to the hospital and
get a drip. But if anything doesn't go well, we
weren't the ones to tell you to do that.
Finding your fit the old fashioned way was
everywhere last month. We have an excellent
and incredibly cute cycling and camping
story written by our Junior Reporter
Elodie. She and a crew of intrepid cyclists
from Nottingham took themselves out into
the wilderness for some excellent fresh air,
camping, cycling and everything else that goes
with it. They even packed the marshmallows.
Elsewhere in the fitness world we've got our
regular column called Yoga &. This month
it's about yoga and qi. We're really happy to
run this column as it gives you a more in
depth outlook on yoga and how to integrate
it and holistic health in general into your life.
If you're intrigued, be sure to visit Gabriella's
classes in person as it's even better hearing it
straight from her.
If yoga and cycling weren't enough, it was the
first ever Ningbo Women's Half Marathon
in Yinzhou. Nearly 500 competitors came out
and ran up and down Ningbo's lovely southern
mountains. The day was a complete success
and we're hoping another one is scheduled
It might be the case that you don't like to
punish yourself with hours of cycling or days
of running. It may be that you like to punish
your legs by going straight up. Hiking your
way through Huangshan is sure way to whip
your legs into shape, or into submission. We
have some great coverage from our very own
Magnolia Wang accompanied with stunning
photos from Peter Morgan. (Peter is also the
photographer of our cover photo this month.)
After all of the exercising it's only natural to be
hungry. Actually it's only natural to be really
hungry. But that's exactly the time to watch
what you eat and newcomer on the food scene,
Fitbox, will help you do just that. The small
eatery in Yinzhou is fixated on healthy fresh
food with authentic and delicious ingredients.
There are wide range of balanced meal options
as well as a literal wall of supplements. The
owner and operators there are knowledgeable
and are more than happy to help with any
fitness related questions.
Once you've done all that work, it's time to
relax. And at the end of the month, there's just
the gig for that. John Carroll and William
Gray will play the Prince Bar on May 30th.
The show will be an excellent collections of
orignal songs and compositions written by the
two Hangzhou transplants.
We would expect that after that show, there
will be yet another late night party at Prince so
schedule that night for a big one.
At this point you've basically started the whole
party, get fit, party, get fit, party, get fit cycle
over again. Or maybe you've just stuck with fit
or just with party. Everything in moderation
means there's lots to get out and do in Ningbo.
We'll see you out there.

Scientists in China First to Edit the
Human Genome in an Embryo
And with that we are living in the future. Scientific community confirms
rumors and the debate over playing around with people is about to get serious.
The first ever confirmed report of editing
the genetic code in human embryos has
come and past. Scientists at Sun Yat-Sen
University in Guangzhou, led by Junjiu
Huang, have removed a gene responsible
for a fatal blood disorder. Using embryos
incapable of developing into a live birth
and sourced from a local fertility clinic,
the scientists employed a technique called

short palindromic repeats) have been
observed since the 1980’s and is actually a
naturally-occurring defence mechanism

technique could be effective at not only
removing genetic diseases from the

human genome, it could easily lead
to designer babies where traits like
intelligence, beauty and even eye color can
be manipulated at will.
Before the doomsday clock starts counting
down, leading scientists across the world
have asked for a temporary moratorium
on the research. Nature News notes that
the “enormous opportunities” of this kind
of genetic engineering can come with
“unknown risks to human health and
Moreover, the technology isn’t perfect.
The process isn’t perfect and most of
the embryos didn’t survive. But, as the
exponential acceleration in technological
advancements shows no signs of slowing
down, a higher success rate is likely not
far off.

the completely unforeseen ramifications
of playing with genetic sequences

scientific communities in Europe

More Citizens Reading Books at
Ningbo Libraries
Data from Ningbo Library shows that between 2012 and 2014, the rate of
adults and children borrowing books from the library increased steadily.
In 2014, the numbers reached a high with 1.36 million people borrowing
3.42 million books from the library. The biggest increase came from young
readers, who showed an interest in a wide range of topics. The rising literacy

THE by Beyond Mandarin
Hello Everybody! Considering that our foreign friends who live
in Ningbo may encounter problems while learning Chinese.
Beyond Mandarin Chinese Training & Culture Experience
Center would like to take this opportunity to interview some
students who are studying in our school to share their learning
and life experience in Ningbo. We hope this column can help
you in some aspects. Last but not least, we look forward to
your suggestions. Please e-mail Nicki with any comments:
[email protected] Thank you for your interest!
The following interview was originally in Chinese, and has been
translated by Beyond Mandarin.
For four years, Justin has been a student at Beyond Mandarin. He has a
busy yet colorful life. I estimate that he is currently balancing as many as
10 commitments, including study, work, volunteer activities and his own
hobbies. We often call Justin a ‘China Hand’, and because his story is so
rich, we’ve decided to publish it in three installments. This time, we mainly
discussed his arrival in Ningbo and the start of his life here. In the next two
installments, Justin shares with us his experiences of living and working in
Ningbo, including interesting places he has visited. He will also talk about
learning Chinese, and some stories from work. Stay tuned…!
Nicki: Hello, Justin. Can you give a simple self-introduction?
Justin: Okay, I'm Justin, a native of Michigan, in the northern U.S., where
it’s still snowing! I studied music in the States, through the doctoral level,
stopping short of the dissertation. When I first came to Ningbo, however,
I taught English. Now, I’m a post-graduate student at the University of
Nottingham, Ningbo.
Nicki: I heard that you are very busy lately. Can you tell us what you are
Justin: Haha! Right, I'm too busy, I feel like I'm running every day! First of
all, I am a student at the University of Nottingham; I am also an English
teacher at a German company where I teach their Chinese employees. I
am a piano instructor; once or twice a month I host a Chinese cooking
class for expats; every Sunday I play the piano for Mass; I work as a culture
guide for expats in Ningbo; at the same time, I also assist a local friend at
his company in Ningbo. Last year, I taught IELTS at Ningbo University and
I am also helping a university in Hangzhou to edit an English textbook.
Nicki: You are really busy! Well, let’s start from the beginning. When
did you come to Ningbo?
Justin: I came to Ningbo in 2009.
Nicki: Why did you come to China? And why choose to come to Ningbo?
Justin: There are many reasons. The first reason was my dad. My dad liked
| M AY 2 0 1 5
traveling, and was quite sympathetic to Eastern cultures. When I was
little, he told me many stories about Eastern countries. He also traveled
to many cities. Forty years ago, my father came to China. My dad was
very understanding of China, and even liked using chopsticks. He also
spent a year in Sweden. When I heard his stories, I thought, I'm going
to travel to a lot of places. The second reason is that when I was a college
student in the United States, many of my professors had lived abroad,
some in Europe (e.g. France, Germany, Italy), some in Brazil, others
in Japan. At that time, I thought there were so many people around
me who had experienced life in a foreign country, but there were none
who had lived in China, so I began planning, “I’m going to China,
this will be my special experience”, and so I began thinking how to
move to China. I was teaching piano in States, and had a student from
Ninghai, who told me, ‘You should go to Ningbo, it’s a good place.’ So, I
checked the Internet for jobs in Ningbo, and found an online recruiter
advertising for Xiaoshi High School. I sent them my resume, and they
immediately replied. I accepted the interview, and they wanted me to
come to work in Ningbo. Previously, there had been graduates from
Yale University who came to Xiaoshi to teach.
Nicki: Congratulations to you, so you succeeded in coming to China
to work. That was your first trip to China, in 2009, right?
Justin: My first time to China was in 2008. In 2008, my Ninghai student
married. She and her husband invited me to attend their wedding
in Chongqing. I immediately said, “I want to attend!” To be honest,
I think they were a bit surprised, because they thought China is too
far from the United States, but I very much wanted to visit China, so
in 2008 I spent two weeks here, in Chongqing and Shanghai. At that
time, Shanghai was fascinating to me: I spoke no Chinese, and did
not understand Chinese customs. For example, I kept going to small
restaurants, but couldn’t read the menu, so I always went to places with
picture menus. Whichever photo looked nice, I ordered it!
Nicki: The first time you came to China, did you like it?
Justin: I immediately liked China. To me, life in China was an
adventure, because I don’t know what it would be like to live here.
Nicki: Soon after you came to China, did you adapt to life here? For
example, Chinese dishes and Ningbo’s climate?
Justin: Yes, this was no problem for me. I’ll eat anything. I really like
some of the special dishes here, such as ‘pungent (stinky) melon’, which
is a local Ningbo dish. I also like drunken shrimp, and so many more.
The weather is not a big problem. Ningbo is a little cold in winter, a little
uncomfortable. I remember my first year in Ningbo, when the summer
was very hot, that was especially uncomfortable, but last summer was very
Nicki: As an American coming to China, being unsure of differences in
Chinese people's way of thinking and working — what we call ‘cultural
differences’ — you were able to adapt to these differences?
Justin: When I first came to Ningbo, it was as an English teacher. For me,
that was a new job, without previous experience. So I began learning about
linguistics. At the high school, I had many good and effective colleagues,
serious teachers, who often worked together with me to discuss problems.
For example, I often say to them, “I do not know how to help this student.”
They gave me a lot of useful advice. In fact, before I came to China, I had
considered this issue, of teaching English in China; I thought there should
be some teaching problems that are like those in the U.S., and a number
of problems that are different from there. Not knowing how to solve many
of those problems, my colleagues really gave me a lot of help. So, I slowly
adapted to my work, and I am very grateful to all of them.
Nicki: By that time you had learned some Chinese, right?
Justin: Yes. Sophia talked with me and gave me a level test. She thought I
was level two, but also thought that I didn’t know a lot of simple grammar
and vocabulary. So I start from level 2. Even now, I understand a good
amount of complicated Chinese, but sometimes some simple syntax and
words I still don’t know, so I think it is very important to build a solid
language foundation when you just start to learn a language.
Nicki: So you did not immediately begin to formally learn Chinese
when you came to Ningbo, only after a year?
Justin: The first year and a half, I was mostly on my own, which was rather
Nicki: In fact, many foreigners who come to China, don’t learn
Justin: I think this is a serious mistake. For foreigners, pronunciation and
simple grammar is very important. I know a lot of foreigners in Ningbo,
some have been here for years, and yet they do not speak Chinese, nor
read characters. I think that if a person really wants to understand
Chinese culture, she or he should learn Chinese. Language and culture
are closely linked: if you learn the language of the country, it is natural
Nicki: It seems that you are now accustomed to living and working in that you can learn about the people and culture of the country.
Justin: I can say that I am used to it, but I can also say that I think I'm Nicki: Well, today we discussed a lot of things about when you first
becoming really American at the same time. For the six years I’ve been in came to China. I can see that you really like things related to culture.
Ningbo, I’ve enjoyed life here, becoming more and more accustomed to For our next interview, I want to talk about your language learning
Chinese culture, but I also know more about American culture. Strange, experience and recent activities, alright?
right? Before coming here, I didn’t think a lot about differences of cultural Justin: Good!
issues, and when I came to China I thought a lot. Before I came to Ningbo,
a good friend told me, “When you go to China, you will face a significant Nicki: Thank you very much for taking time from your busy schedule
problem.” When I asked him what he meant, he said, “You have to learn for our interview.
how another culture lives, while still respecting your American culture.” Justin: My pleasure.
At the time, I thought that was nonsense, but now I feel he was right. I also
know, living in a foreign country, in addition to adapting to local life and
culture, you must also be true to your own culture. You cannot forget that.
Nicki: After you came to China, did you encounter any difficulties?
Justin: Let me think about that. In my first year, everything was new for me,
and every day a joy, so the first year I didn’t have problems. As I understood
more about China, I began to have some minor problems. For example, my
first three years in China, I couldn’t say much in Chinese. I like to talk. So,
when I went to a store and wanted to talk with the owner, I couldn’t, I could
only say a bit, and (of course) they didn’t understand me. I began to feel
that my pronunciation was not very good, and my grammar bad. So I began
to practice saying “Hello” to everything, all the time. I practiced for three
months, and finally one day I greeted someone who understood me, and I
was so excited! Not speaking much Chinese, I had all these problems. For
example, I’d go to the supermarket but couldn’t say “I want a bag,” couldn’t
tell anyone what I wanted, and so I talked very little with others. They didn’t
understand me, even ignored me. So I began to feel that the locals didn’t
like foreigners, and didn’t like to be asked questions. Later, I found I was
wrong, that it was my problem. Because they didn’t understand me, they
felt embarrassed, and didn’t answer.
Nicki: Had you started learning Chinese at that time?
Justin: This question is difficult to answer. At that time, I had a lot of
colleagues, who were Chinese English teachers. Sometimes, I would ask
them some questions about Chinese, but they weren’t sure how to answer.
When I told them, “I think I should go to a Chinese school,” they said,
“No, no, we can teach you.” I knew they were well-intentioned and really
wanted to help me, so I sincerely thanked them. However, I also knew that
I needed more help to learn Chinese. So in the summer of my second year,
I asked my colleagues to help me find a Chinese school. We looked at ads
and found three schools. I chose Beyond Mandarin.

China’s AIIB – The Facts To Know
By Dezan Shira & Associates
March 31 2015 was the deadline for countries to join the Asia
Infrastructure Investment Bank. This cut-off date was met with a
rush of last minute applications from countries around the world.
The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) was first
proposed when Xi Jinping and Li Keqiang visited Southeast Asian
countries in October 2013. The AIIB will finance infrastructure
projects throughout Asia, such as roads, railways and ports.
By October 2014, 22 Asian states had signed a Memorandum
of Understanding to establish the AIIB. The bank is to be
headquartered in Beijing and is widely seen as China’s answer to
the Japanese-led Asian Development Bank and the Americandominated World Bank.
The Chinese government had long been dissatisfied with
Japanese and American reluctance to grant it a larger say in
existing international financial institutions. For instance, China
contributed 12.6 percent to global GDP, with 23 percent by the
US and 6.7 percent by Japan. However, Japan is the majority
shareholder of the Asian Development Bank with 15.7 percent of
shares, followed by the US with 15.6 percent. China only holds 5.5
percent. The same situation occurs with in the World Bank. The
institution is led by the US with 16 percent of shares, followed by
Japan with 8.9 percent, and China merely holding 5.8 percent. At
the same time, the US is unwilling to give China a bigger say in
the IMF.
New Development Bank
It should therefore come as no surprise that China is now moving
to establish its own international and multilateral institutions. On
July 15, 2014 China founded the New Development Bank, another
multilateral financial institution with the 5 BRICS countries
(Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) as member states.
The New Development Bank is to be headquartered in Shanghai
and like the AIIB, will focus on infrastructure projects. It will
also feature a regional headquarters for African projects, based
in South Africa.
| M AY 2 0 1 5
One Road, One Belt
As said, the aim of the AIIB is to finance
infrastructure projects throughout Asia. It
is a practical application of Xi Jinping’s One
Road, One Belt vision, in which he intends
to recreate the historic Silk Road that
connected China to the Mediterranean, the
Middle East and Western Europe, passing
through Central Asia.
Improved infrastructure will create new
and strengthen existing trade routes
throughout the region. The projects will
stimulate growth in the countries along the
proposed New Silk Road, so that combined
with better connectivity; these regions will
become markets for Chinese goods. In the
short term, the projects themselves are an
appealing investment alternative for the
Chinese government. With the US and EU
economies weakening, China feels the need
to diversify its investments.
In addition, the enhanced engagement
with the region that the AIIB investments
will entail will enable China to improve its
relations with the countries in the region.

Take a tour through
one of China's most
beautiful mountains.

the ever popular mountain in
the clouds is a must see in China
Huangshan is one of China's most well-known
sightseeing destinations. It is recognized as a UNESCO
World Heritage site and throughout the country's
history has been a subject of paintings, stories, poetry
and photography. Its relatively close proximity to
Ningbo in Anhui province cements its place as a mustsee during one's time here.
There is entirely too much to talk about and describe
in the space of a magazine article, so I thought I would
recount the story of my trip, which is one of the many
Huangshan adventures available to those who make
the journey.
The trip to Huangshan from Ningbo takes about six
hours in total, and requires a stop in Hangzhou. From
the Zhejiang capital, you'll take a bus to Tunxi Station,
which is located in Huangshan city. The bus takes four
and a half hours. The actual mountain scenic area of
Huangshan is another bus ride away from there, so
it's probably best to stay in town and find lodging
and some good eating, which is exactly what we did.
The city area has standard tourist options, but also
features some great local cuisine which is spicy, salty
and chock full of wild vegetables you don't really find
in Ningbo. There are lots of accommodation options
ranging from budget hostels to luxury, but make sure
to book ahead as everything fills up quickly.
| M AY 2 0 1 5
We woke up early the next day to spend as much time on the
mountain as possible,which proved to be a wise choice due to
the mass of people here to enjoy this famous place. You have
two options to get to the top of the mountain, a two-to-threehour hike or a cable car. The former is paved, has stairs built
in and is well-marked, making it likely just fine for everyone
in your group. The cable car, however, boasts some of the most
breathtaking views I've ever witnessed in China, and started
to give us a sense for why the site has become so legendary
over the generations.
Though there isn't a moment of scenery that isn't pretty
stunning, the peak is the main reason millions of tourists
flock here every year. And for good reason. There is a large
flat area at the summit which provides a complete 360-degree
panorama. While adding to the snaps and beeps of the
cameras around you is going to be part of your trip—and
you'll definitely want to make sure you bring something to
capture the beauty around you—it's well worth putting it all
down for a few minutes to soak up what's around you. The
lush vegetation, the ancient craggy rock formations, the fertile
valleys that extend beyond what the eye can see—you might
be tempted to join the legions of poets who've attempted to
put this truly special place into words. Because neither I nor
my friends paid much attention during poetry class, I'll have
to let the photos do the work.
| M AY 2 0 1 5
I mentioned earlier that it's worth making
accommodation bookings ahead of time. Here's
why. After spending a lot of time at the summit, we
started to notice as the light began to soften and the
air got a bit of a chill to it. It was then that we realized
we didn't have anywhere to stay for the evening and
were forced to search around. Thankfully, one of
the hotels at the top of the mountain, though fully
booked, was able to rent us a tent and we got a few
hours of something resembling sleep. Count on all
the hotels on the top of the mountain being booked
up, and count on maybe not being able to make it
back into town. Do yourself a favor and just make
sure you've got something booked before you roll
into town.
Though it is the natural scenery that people come
for, another point of interest for me was the men
responsible for hauling supplies up and down the
mountain and keeping the place clean. You'll see
them throughout your Huangshan trip, complete
with chiseled figure and a fatigued but genuine
smile lighting up their face. In talking to just about
everyone who worked on or around the mountain it
became clear that these men are the what makes the
whole place run.
As I said before, there's far too much about this place
to fit into one article. People have been attempting
to capture the beauty of Huangshan for thousands
of years, and it's likely they'll still be trying for a long
time to come.

Every month we bring
you the skinny on the
latte and the cafe that
serves it. With all the
coffee shops opening all
over Ningbo, we'll bring
you the low-down, right
to the last drop.
Form Finally Follows Function
The design ideal that form should follow function, i.e. the design
of a thing or of a place should arise organically from its purpose, is
one that often goes ignored here in Ningbo in favor of pretty things
that don't have a whole lot of utilitarian value. This is especially
true when it comes to coffee shops
around the city; often cute to look
at but also awkward.
However the niftiest feature is the print and copy station right there
in the shop. Any student or teacher can attest to having hours of
good study vibes ruined by the last minute panic of where to print
or copy something. The folks at Roadlong know your struggle, and
they've gone out of their way
to provide you with a few extra
minutes of prep (or nap) time
before getting to it. It's a great
example of someone identifying
the purpose of a place and
running with it. Form following
function to the nth degree.
You couldn't ask for a
better place to study
or plan lessons.
Roadlong Cafe, which sits on

aren't trying to escape the idea that they're living in China.
You couldn't ask for a better place to study or plan lessons. The
design features several private little nooks with comfy armchairs
and soft and sufficient lighting—a perfect place to curl up with
one's homework or a mountain of papers to grade. There are also
areas more suited to conversation, along with a big table that could
be used for small seminars or discussions.
| M AY 2 0 1 5
The cafe offers most of the foods you'd expect with a picture menu
and has a small but pleasing selection of beers and liquors. The
coffee itself is on par with most of the artisan spots in the city, and
they have a decent selection of teas and fruit juices. The eats and
drinks at Roadlong are nothing new or special, but like everything
else at the cafe they are perfectly suited for the clientele.

All hail the mighty swine. Discerning diners and cantankerous chefs
will usually agree that no animal reigns more edible than the pig.
There may be pieces of other animals that hit levels of delicious
that no other creature could but there is no other animal that can
be used head to toe to make some of the best food. From China to
France the pigs foot is just the beginning of using pork to its fullest.
And seeing as pork is a sort of national meat in China, every month
we'll bring you a new way to get the most out of the tasty pig.

Add pigs ears and mirepoix to stockpot and
cover with water. Simmer, do not boil, for at least
3 hours or overnight. Skim off scum. Reserve
pork stock for something delicious like braised
pork loin and ramen noodles.
There used to be a small BBQ window next to a low scale slaughter house where
I grew up in Kansas City. The window would serve the normal KC fare but they
also took every other part of the pig and served it up. Pig Ear Sandwiches were
popular. You could walk up to the window and say, "Two Pig Ear Sandwiches
please." The guy behind the counter would hollar back to the kitchen, "TWO
LISTENERS." You were only moments away from cracklin' heaven.
As we go over every month, nothing on
the pig is wasted. Moreover, when you start

ones favorite piggy, the nasty bits start to
be the most fun. Don’t let the off cuts scare
you away. These are some of the most fun
parts of the pig to cook with. There’s a
sense of achievement and novelty at taking
something as obscure and ugly as a pig ear
and turning it into the best bar snack you’ve
ever eaten.
There are two main approaches to preparing
pigs ears. The first is a pan-fried or roasted
direction that leaves you with a delicious
crunchy, somewhat meaty, cartilage chewy

Remove ears from liquid and dry completely.
Remove cartilage if desired. Cut into strips or
long flaps.

piece of delicious pork that has just the right
amount of gummy. There’s something about
the offcuts of the pork, or even everyone’s
favorite pork belly that isn’t quite flesh and
isn’t quite fat. This is the texture that comes
with pigs ears. And pan-frying or roasting
will really bring that out.
The second method is more time consuming
but will leave you with a puffy piece of pork
cracklin’ that can’t be beat. Cracklin’ usually
has a deep greasy undertone that can turn
people off from eating an entire bag full of
the snack (or can keep them looking for a
second one), but the cracklin’ made from
the ear will give you a deep pork flavor, a
considerable crunch, and leave you with
a cleaner and lighter snack than the store
bought version.
For both versions you need to be prepared
to break down the ears for a long time.
This is a pretty easy process as we’re talking
about simmering them for hours. It requires
minimal attention and skipping this step
will make your ears taste like rubber. Also,
some people advocate using stock in the
simmering process. I do not. It can make
the next step even more difficult and slightly
dangerous than it needs to be due to the
amount of water it can retain inside the ear.
And that next step is frying. Any part of
This is a second step that isn't absolutely
necessary but creates some of the best cracklin'.
After drying the pigs ears and removing the
cartilage if desired, place the ears on a backing
sheet lined with a silicon mat or a ton of
cooking spray. Ears are gelatinous and they can
easily stick to the sheet.
Bake the ears on an extremely low setting
(150F/65C) for 12-24 hours. At this point you
might be like wow this is taking too long. Just
drink more beer and leave them in the oven.
You don't have to do anything with them. They
are done when they are absolutely brittle and
not pliable. At this stage you can store them for
a very long time. When you have guests over,
heat your oil high (375F/190C) and drop them
in. The ears will puff up much larger than their
dehydrated size.

into overdrive. It can splatter and that
is some hot business. Get yourself a
screen to put over the fryer or the pot
and turn up the heat. Getting the oil to
a substantially high heat is important.
The instantaneous heat causes any
residual water left in the ear to convert
to steam on impact. This is puffiness,
and puffiness is good because it’s also
To make true cracklin’ from an ear you
are going to want to remove the middle
piece of cartilage from the center of
the ear and then dehydrate the ears
for up to 24 hours in a low temp oven.
This will remove most of the water
and make frying excellent. The good
news is that after the dehydration step
and before the frying, these ears will
virtually never go bad because you

salt and pepper is perfect for a simple
snack. You can cover them in KC BBQ

find. You can dress them with a little

generally what it's like to be a musician and live in China.

On Saturday 30th John Carroll will be playing at The Prince Bar in Ningbo with
William Gray supporting. Both artists are on the Medic Records label based in
Hangzhou but both are very familiar with the city of Ningbo (if you read last month's
feature you'll know William Gray used to live here). John takes a lead in running the
label but is also an established artist in his own right, originally from Limerick in
Ireland, but with ample experience of performing his music across China. His most
recent release is Cenotaph Tapes which can be heard at
It's well worth a listen, along with his other output.
John's first experience of living in Asia was in South Korea but he finally opted to
live in China, ending up in Hangzhou where he met his Hangzhounese wife Kim
and started a family. John is no stranger to Ningbo, often visiting the city purely for
recreational reasons but also of course as a performer. Ningbo Guide is very much
looking forward to welcoming him back in his professional capacity at the end of
the month.
To find out more about John's label, his music and why people in Ningbo should
come and see him perform we tracked him down, cornered him and poked him
with a sharp stick until he agreed to answer our questions.
John Carroll's most recent release, Cenotaph Tapes (available
at, is both highly accomplished
in terms of the songwriting on display, and, at the same time,
beautifully recorded. Any Westerner who has made a home in
China will surely instantly relate to the second track, the wistful
If I'd Known, evoking as it does that feeling of alienation most
of us must experience, at least sometimes, no matter how much
boozing and partying we do with our fellow laowais in splendid
isolation, immersed as we still nevertheless are, in a radically
different culture to that which we grew up in. Another standout
moment comes in the form of the fourth track on the LP, the
astutely crafted You Used To Be My Brush, which revels in its
melancholy feel and features a unique and melodically pleasing
guitar part before a simple and nicely panned string section
enters the musical fray to lift the arrangement, the outro closing
out with a curious acoustic guitar refrain which may, for some
listeners, conjure up the lucid feel of the Incredible String Band.
For those who like their instrumentation impressively rendered,
with the track Desperation Looms the acoustic guitar playing,
if it's technical proficiency you're wishing to wallow in, is
splendidly silky. This then is an album that warrants repeated
listening and, as far as we at the Ningbo Guide are concerned,
certainly worthy of wider recognition in the modern folk sphere.

NG: We heard a little bit about William
Gray's somewhat strange EP title Tish last

I had the title for a long time because I used
to record all my home demos on a crappy old
cassette player - hence the 'tapes'. Most of
the songs are about personal difficulties I've
experienced over the past number of years
which I'd been carrying as a deadweight on
my shoulders for too long. I felt the need
to unload it somehow, so I thought of the
idea of a memorial/cenotaph that marked
that time in my life, to help me to move on

came about.

The Singapore Sling was invented at the
Raffles Hotel in Singapore in 1910. Since
then, the recipe has given way to many
variations. However it's made, the Singapore
Sling is the quintessential summer drink—
fruity, long and served ice cold—perfect for
making it through the heat and humidity
we're about to be dealing with.
Traditionally all “sling’s” were American
drinks made with spirit and water that were
then sweetened and flavored. One of the
more interesting quotes about the Singapore
Sling in particular comes from D.A Embury
in the Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, “Of
all the recipes published for [this drink I

have never seen any two that were alike.
Originally called a Gin Sling, the Singapore
Sling does have some pretty awful recipe
options. It can be found to be little more
than gin, sweet and sour, and grenadine,
which sort of tastes as good going down as
it does coming up.
How It's Done:
This recipe from Lounge is exceptionally
more delicious. The use of fresh juices is
a must and will make the entire drink tart
and delicious while taking some of the bite
off the gin. The Cherry liqueur lends a great
tartness to the drink. Any way you shake it,
the drink is great for our warm and humid
Ningbo summers.
Shake well.
Fill a Collins glass 1/3 of the way with ice.
Put all the liquid ingredients into the shaker,
followed by the same amount of ice as is in
the glass.
Strain the mixture into the glass and
then garnish the beverage with a slice of
pineapple and a Maraschino cherry.
Serve to a thirsty friend.

Last month at Youngor Stadium, a two night Muay Thai and
MMA Boxing match was held. The spectacle was large and the
crowd was loud as they cheered on for their favorite fighters.
The competitors came from all over China, Europe and the
United States. The event was televised and the commentary
was provided by two local Chinese hosts and our very own
Josh who covered the fights in English.
All of the fights were popular, quick, and action packed.
Most fights were scheduled for no more than three rounds
and though all of them were anticipated, no more so than
the Women’s MMA match. It was a great night for boxing in
Ningbo and hopefully there will be another soon.

Yoga &QI
by Gabriella Buttarazzi
Four Benefits
of Massage
That May
Surprise You
Stretching what you
think about yoga.
Coverage of Ningbo's
first Women's Half
| M AY 2 0 1 5
Someone asked me recently: “What
are the differences between Taichi,
Qigong and Yoga?” A very good
question, and since we’re in China, I
thought I’d draw the parallels between
ancient practices from China (namely
Taichi and Qigong) with those of
India (yoga of course).
Philosophical & Esoteric Roots of
Both Yoga & Qi Practices
First of all, I should clarify the basics:
Yoga is part of Ayurveda (a type of
Hindu traditional medicine) and first
came into taught knowledge in The
Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, and Qigong
and Taichi are elements of TCM
(Traditional Chinese Medicine).
Typically, they all involve a range
of movements and breathing, using
breath to invoke a meditative state
and move energy within, around and
through the physical and energetic
body. All are also practiced as a means of
raising awareness and consciousness.
In addition to Qigong and Taichi,
other TCM practices involving the
harnessing and unblocking of qi
include acupuncture, tui na (a type
of massage), moxibustion, cupping
and a range of Taoist (mostly sexual)
through movements. All Qi practices and Yoga practices apply
different and wide-ranging techniques, and are active meditations
that enable our physical bodies to fully align with our energetic
Qi (氣), often translated as ‘natural energy’, ‘life
force’ or ‘energy flow’, is the underlying principle
of TCM, first introduced by philosopher Mo Di,
and Qi practices first introduced much later
by classical Toaist masters. Similar to Western
notions of the Humours, and ancient yogic
notions of Prana (in Sanskrit) or ‘vital energy’, Qi
is the metaphorical notion for the flow of energy
around and through our bodies. This flow of
energy generates within us a youthfulness and
vitality when nourished. Through Qi practices,
like Taichi and Qigong, our Qi can balance,
strengthen and flow. By understanding our Qi’s
rhythm and flow, these practices can enable us
to feel more vibrant and balanced long-term.
The same applies in yoga practice, through it
our Prana can strengthen and flow. In a sense,
yoga itself, quite like Qi practices, is about
harnessing, unblocking and nourishing the flow
of Qi. Only it’s called something else in Sanskrit,
that’s really the only difference.
The Meridians vs. The Nadis
We’ve all seen those body maps of the
Meridians, and some of us (myself included)
have had acupuncture either in or outside of
China for the rebalancing of energy and curing
of minor ailments or illnesses. The difference
between the two is again through their terms
because conceptually they are virtually the
same. Qi circulates in highly charged channels
known as Meridians, and Prana circulates in
highly charged channels known as Nadis. The
intense Meridian points are known as Acupoints and the intense Nadi points are known
as the Chakras. Symptoms of various ailments
or illnesses are believed to be the product
of imbalanced, deficient or blocked Qi. The
Meridians and Nadis are like energetic maps in
our bodies, and believed to define us as much
as, if not more than, our physical bodies can.
The Balancing, Unblocking &
Harnessing Of Qi
In Qigong, this harnessing of Qi is practiced
through a combination of movements, selfmassage, breathing and meditation, in Taichi,
Through the breath, mental focus and physical movements or
poses (Asanas in Sanskrit), all three practices harness, unblock
and elevate our vital energy or Qi upwards to our crown (crown
chakra or Sahasrara in Sanskrit). This starts from our contact
with the ground, or the ‘primordial force’ as modern Taoist
master Mantak Chia calls it. The aim, if we can call it that, is to
maximize our health and wellbeing by experience a life of full
of vitality, youthfulness and energy, which in turn bring about a
sense of happiness, stability and balance.
If you, through one of these practices, have grown to feel more
vibrant, energized or rejuvenated, it is because your Meridians,
or Nadis are unblocked, and your vital energy or Qi has become
unblocked, elevated, strong and free flowing. I know it sounds
like a fairy tale, but all I can say is that through practice I know
Qigong, Taichi and Yoga are very effective in energising and
balancing our bodies. Personally speaking, I prefer the depth
that Yoga provides us with on both a structural-muscular level
as well as on an energetic level. Although Qi is conceptualized as
a metaphorical concept and not a scientific one, what does that
matter if working with it through a regular practice like Yoga (or
Taichi or Qigong) makes us feel vibrant?

Gabriella Buttarazzi first encountered the established
Teacher Training School Yoga Integral Dharma Ananda
whilst living in Valencia, Spain from 2010. Before that, quite
like many, she had only dabbled with yoga as a recreational
activity. Noticing the profound effects it had on her body
and mind, she decided to train in and subsequently teach
Integral Yoga. It has been an on-going process of learning
from and adapting to her inspiring students. She has built a
resources and information site in both Chinese and English
in order to further support her students here in Ningbo.
what is integral yoga?
Integral Yoga fuses techniques of Hatha Yoga (working
with the physical body), Kundalini Yoga (working with the
energetic body) and Dhyana Yoga (working with the mind/
meditation). A gentle but complete practice to balance,
relax and energise the body and mind, improving overall
health and wellbeing upon regular practice.
course description
Integral Yoga classes are held on both Tuesdays and Thursdays
at 17:15 – 18:45 and 19:00 – 20:30 above Zlife, near The
University of Nottingham in the Yinzhou area. Each 16-week
course costs 1,200 CNY for twice weekly attendance, and
600 CNY for once weekly attendance. Contact Gabriella on

A Weekend Break
in the Mountains
By Elodie Sadoux-Gray, Sports and
Activities Correspondent
Last weekend I took part in a
cycle and camping adventure
outside of Ningbo. A group of
35-40 cyclists of all shapes
and sizes with all shapes and
sizes of bikes too, gathered
at Nottingham University on
Saturday morning. First we
had our bikes (and brakes!)
checked by Simon and Matt
who organised the trip. Safety
| M AY 2 0 1 5
The group was made up of mostly
teachers, staff and students of the
university. We set off at 10am and cycled
south out of the city on the main roads
and then onto country roads heading
towards Xiang Xi village. The traffic
was fast and busy but after a while it got
quieter. On the first morning, in bright
sunshine, we went about 10kms, to a
small town, where we had a quick stop to
eat energy snacks and drink water. I had
an ice cream! Then we began the ascent
of the mountain, which is roughly 350
meters above sea level.
Thankfully there was a support vehicle
to help people who found the climb too
difficult. It was hot but I did manage
about half of the climb until I had no
energy left in my legs and my dad had
to push my bike up the rest of the hill.
Eventually the support van came past
after having collected some students
from behind us who were unprepared
for the effort involved, and took me to
the top with my bike. Once we made
it to the top we met up with the rest
of the group and had big banana and
fruit bread sandwiches and energy
drink. After a short rest, we then got
to freewheel down the other side of the
hill, which was really good fun, going
quite fast but not having to do any hard
work pedalling the bike.
Some people swam in a mountain pool
but I couldn’t because my swimsuit
was in the support van. We rode on to
a small village called Tong Cun near
Xiang Xi village and set up our tents by
the reservoir. Unfortunately the water
level in the reservoir had dropped by 2-3
meters since last year and so instead of
being able to swim easily from the edge
of the campsite we had to walk across
a soggy, flat piece of land to reach the
water. My brother and me then had a
ride in inflatable kayaks to row out to a
bridge in the middle of the reservoir and
we jumped off it and swam around it. It
was very cold but very refreshing.
MAY 2 0 1 5 |
My brother and me were the only two children
on the trip and were given the job of building
and looking after a big campfire. We had to
keep searching for wood, which was even more
difficult after it rained, as all the wood around
the campsite was wet. My dad and brother
cycled into the village and found some wood
which was given to them for free as it was from
off-cuts sitting outside houses. We cooked
chicken wraps and soup and then slept “really
well” in sleeping bags.
Breakfast was hot bacon pancakes, which tasted
really good in the countryside. The second day
we had to do another hill climb, which was
difficult but we did get to go down a really
steep, fast hill before heading back to the city.
Overall, we cycled 75-80 kilometers this
weekend. I managed to do all of it except for
about half of each of the two hill climbs. I saw a
bit of life in the countryside different to the city.
I had a great time, saw some great views from
the top of the mountain, swam in a cold lake,
met some new people sitting around a campfire
and above all got some really good exercise.
I hope you enjoyed my article as much as I did!
See you next month!!

NBIS Defeats AIAN in
Boys' Soccer Match
The Ningbo International School (NBIS)
boys senior soccer team won its fourth
consecutive match on the afternoon of
April 8th. This time it was against Access
International Academy Ningbo (AIAN)
in a strong, physical contest on the main
field at Zhejiang Wanli University. AIAN
drew first blood with a quick goal but
the boys from NBIS kept their cool and
replied quickly levelling the scores. The
speed of the AIAN players saw them get
another goal before NBIS were able to
react but teamwork and tenacity led to a
second goal for NBIS with the first half
finishing at an even 2-2.
calm and the goals came with the final
result 5-2 in favor of NBIS. It was a great
team effort and the boys should be very
proud of their efforts.
“The squad has put the hard work
into training all season and have been
supportive of each other, allowing
everyone to enjoy the game,” said coach
Tony Fuller. “All players have improved
their skills and attitudes and some have
made huge gains. Our focus was on
communication at the beginning of the
season and they not only picked that up
but discovered that all players were assets
and learned to appreciate them. It has
