This 知竹 seems to be an amateur cinematographer. She has a lot of short films with wuxia and hanfu as her central themes. She's extremely talented, and her fight choreographies are more beautiful than many big budget films that I've seen.

Seriously, check out her channel!

I found this video a little refreshing. Older Chinese being more loose and open to new things. Here in the US if it wasn't a Chinese restaurant, going out to eat with older Chinese relatives, it was just constant criticism of the food. Everyone else doesn't know how to cook. It was annoying. What I find ironic is overseas Chinese think they more "modern" and therefore more civilized than Mainland Chinese but they're more likely to stick to old cultural ways and thinking. In a non-Chinese restaurant they will never be satisfied with the food. I remember my grandmother chewing on a piece of steak. It was like watching someone chewing on bubble gum. She could never chew on it enough to go down her throat. I saw another video from this channel where this guy asks people in Shanghai what was the percentage between Chinese and foreign food they eat and everyone seemed to say 50/50 which was surprising but that maybe because it's Shanghai.

Some one make an interesting comparison between Malaysian Chinese and Indonesian Chinese
Basically she said though Malaysian Chinese preserver the language, culture well but they don't have the same right before the law. Indonesian Chinese don't preserve the language though it is changing now with the craze of learning mandarin. But they the same in front of the law in theory only though.
Chinese Indonesian VS Chinese Malaysian, share too many similiarities and differences. This video explains the history, constitutional differences and chinese surname of Chinese Indonesian.

Over commercializing everything is the trend of the last decades. Building man-made attractions without much history. Places competing to be "the place" of some historical importance, like the birth place of Huang Di, Yan Di, Da Yu etc.

I thought this kind of thing is being demolished by order from the central government recently. Is this statue still there? Not to be demolished soon?

Here is a report from 2020 about order from the Ministry of Housing and Rural Development. The status in the report are all to be demolished.
