Hey all, also a former lurker that decided to join. I was born in Nanning but grew up mostly in Canada after my parents brought us over in the 1990s. Interested in learning about my homeland as well as sharing my experiences (I still have CPC relatives on the mainland so I know enough to discard much of the anti-China propaganda these days, but I've also been involved in the investment world since my teenage years, so I'm aware of various behind the scenes events that don't make it to headline news). Hope to get along with everyone!
Delicious username :)

Hi everyone, Thomas Shaw here. Real native Chinese who live in Beijing.
Been to Canada and USA for travelling when I was in high school and college, since then the world I imagined has collapsed. I once thought USA was all that powerful and rich and people were friendly, but witnessing those homeless in Seattle and LA really hit me.
I used to search for western narrative just for the complement of Chinese events, but now I'm so fed up with it. Their hostility, prejudice and ignorance will eventually ruin them, as far as I concern.
Never thought I would find an English forum that is friendly or at least neutral to China, and here it is an amazing place. Still, I need those angles from outside my country, and I like to observe most of the time, but I will also share some of my perspectives from the inside. Hopefully we can have a good time here!

Hi,

a German engineering student and fellow sinophile.

Been pretty oblivious of past geopolitical events till 2019, when the HK riots started. Since then became pretty baffled by EU's lack off far sightedness and open racism.

I hope to learn from fellow sinophiles and also to contribute to this knowledgeable community.

Cheers

Hiya,
I figure i should post a brief intro thats been long overdue. I'm martinwagner, Chinese guy raised in the USA but now living in Germany. I used to lurk alot on /sino and thats how I found this forum. It certainly feeds my insatiable appetite for novel information on geopolitics. Looking forward to sharing/laughing/learning with y'all.



Loveleenkr, your turn *wink*

Been lurking here for a while now so now's probably a good time to introduce myself.

I was born in Fujian (Ayyy CV-18 let's gooo) but immigrated to Canada along side my family at a very young age. Growing up, I noticed the consistant negative views on China around my environment and never really understood why the Western perception of China was vastly different from my parents and relatives. Places such as r/sino and r/GenZedong really helped me understand the geopolitical complexities of China and the West, especially since 2019 after what had went down in Hong Kong. On top of international relations, and the CPC's political and socioeconomic theory, I've always been interested in the rapid development of the China, its armed forces, and its equipment but wasn't really able to find place where this information could be found, documented, and shared. Before discovering this forum, I had resorted to ifeng and China Military for most of my updates on the PLA which wasn't the best. The quality of information on here far exceeds what other sites provide such as 90% of YouTube, and doesn't seem to bash China at any given opportunity. Seeing the longivity of this site, I hope to see you all for years to come.

Why are you everywhere, Loveleenkr? Are you in my walls?

Welcome, welcome.

I'm somewhat a newer member as well (joined last year) and actually have quite the similar story like you (parents from shanghai, was born in a northern eruopean country though, the rest is kinda similar as well with r/sino, as well as r/GenZedong and r/shitliberalsays).

I think, these places (here and those subreddits) just attracts Chinese overseas diaspora.
