luoping1
Located 230 kilometers east of Kunming (kūn míng 昆明), the capital city of Yunnan province (yún nán shěng 云南省), and neighboring Guizhou (guì zhōu 贵州) and Guangxi (guǎng xī 广西) Provinces, Luoping County (luó píng xiàn 罗平县) is home to one of the largest plantations of rapeseed flowers in Southwest China. Fields covered with golden rape stretch as far as the eye can see and form seas of yellow buds. Combined with a unique terrain dominated by karst features with small basins among mountain ranges, the place boasts very unique landscape features. On top of that majestic waterfalls can be found in the area. All of this makes Luoping a very unique attractive destination for traveling.

Learn Chinese - Chinese Idiom

In ancient times, there was a man who raised monkeys, which became more and more mischievous as they grew up and often destroyed his things. One day the man caught a cock. He assembled the monkeys and said to them:” If you don’t behave and stop causing trouble, you will end up like the coke.” Then he killed the coke in front of the monkeys. Seeing this, the monkeys were frightened and became obedient thereafter.This idiom is used metaphorically to mean to frighten somebody by punishing someone else.

iF Juices: Turn a Good Concept into Real Business
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China

Foreigners in ChinaAs a lawyer Hans Au once advised corporate clients in Europe and Beijing. His friend, Florian Eysler, was a purchasing manager for a European auto-maker in Beijing: just the kind of people you'd expect to quit their corporate jobs and start a fruit juice company in Beijing. Right?

 
Au and Eysler's tiny iF Juice Shop in the Central Park community just inside the East Third Ring Road in Beijing may not prompt thoughts of finely honed legal arguments or precise automotive specifications, but it exudes a sense of precision and restraint, with an emphasis on quality and sanitation (you can watch them as they work). The 25-square-metre iF shop that opened in November 2007 is a powerhouse when it comes to producing smoothies and fresh-juice beverages.
 
But the attention to detail does not stop there: with just a glance at the iF menu, rendered in English and Chinese, customers can assess the sweetness value of each product offered by the duo, whether it's a naturally sweet watermelon drink carrying a “four-red-apple” rating or a bittersweet “four-green-apple” rating for the grapefruit drink or other delights in between. Even the “teardrop” bottles used to sell the beverages are unique, bearing English and Chinese logos and ingredient tags, and if you must have one, there's an attractive media kit available that tells the iF story.
