Since they started putting my email address with my Chinese language column, I have been getting more email from Chinese readers and they are pretty interesting sometimes. Here are some samples.
Alan, I like your Guitar World works! I wish I was lucky enough to have a date with you. All the best and enjoy your life in China!
DEAR Paul I feel that your column was very well written, the Wall Street Journal each will pay attention to you the first time the column has not been updated. Because it is a life of ordinary people in China bit by bit, so I do not think that this is meaningless to others. Continued efforts!
Good weekend. I’m sorry to write a email to you. Because I’m always like reading your articles from chinese.wsj.com.
My name is Kyle Tang,Si Chuan is my hometown, currently I’m working in a private company in the Sheng Zhen of Guang Dong province. Could you reply to me if you enjoy to make friend with me? I’m looking for your email.
Have a good weekend,Alan.
Hi, dear Paul! I am a reader of ur papers on wsj.com. It is pretty proud to hear some views—especially some good news,maybe chinese like to hear them—from a foreigner. Thanks for ur delighent work!
I am a school boy in Sichuan University in Sichuan province, where u have travelled recently. And by a chance, I picked up ur papers on wsj.com, pretty sure, most of ur opinions r positively right; however, as a chinese I can feel that even most of ur-likely presses, such as cnn, forbes,bbc is puting ur focus on chinese quickly developin’ eco. The absence-introduction of chinese culture and its eager of melting into international capital world is abviously at a weak point.
From cnn, businessweek online, I can find a strong feel that even U.S market,labeled as a world for competitors, is holding a nervous and suspectable or doubtled view on chinese companies. Surely, China is sharing its best time with this mess eco-world,at the same time, China is feeling its worst time with its people, where foreigners–especially ur gov and institutions–is criticing each day. We have recognised the importance of development,yet for a country like China with total different culture,political-structure,how much or fast could the world to ask,expect and doubt? Everybody wanna do things properly on right time with a good prestigy,but to error is human beings. We have been trying to melt into Western World where it’s door closed.And from the Subprime Crisis, I thinked a lot recently that the way western world developed is really right? how to proof? Why don’t we just set a platform where has many entrance for those who wanna develop business.After all,business is business.
China should deserve its trust from its business friends, but not suspect or critic words.
