Star Wars fans will be delighted at the news that the original six films will be screened in China for the first time ever next month at the Shanghai International Film Festival. If you’re planning to head to China this summer to meet some of the Chinese ladies you’ve been interacting with online, this might be a great first date.

Walt Disney Pictures and the 18th Shanghai International Film Festival have partnered to show the first six films over the course of the festival in June. The three prequels – Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith – were all shown in Chinese theaters, but the three original films have never screened in the country.

Festival organizers call the Star Wars series one of the greatest sci-fi film masterpieces and would like it to be the topic of discussion for Chinese film lovers in the coming months. In addition, Star Wars: The Force Awakens debuts at the end of the year in China.

The 18th Shanghai International Film Festival takes place from June 13th through June 21st.

Meet Chinese women, move to China: Things to know

If one of your goals is to meet Chinese women, fall in love, and then move to China, you are on a path full of adventure.

However, moving to China for any reason can be a challenge, even for the most experienced expatriate. If you’ve signed up to meet Chinese women and move to China, here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • You might need support. Moving as an expatriate to China is both exciting and frustrating, but be aware that there are large numbers of expats living in the country who can help you feel more comfortable. Even if you’ve fallen in love and you have a new built-in Chinese family, you might still feel a bit of culture shock. Seek out other expats for some support.
  • The cost of living. Although China is still considered a developing country and the standard of living for much of the country is low, some expatriates experience higher pay and lower tax rates than the locals. This could put you in a better position in China than you would be at home. Nevertheless, the cost of living in China’s major cities remains among the highest in the world.
  • Language barriers. There isn’t just one Chinese language; there are several. Although most people speak Mandarin (about 70 percent of the population), there are also Cantonese, Shanghaiese, Minbei, Minnan, and several other minority languages. Most people speak English for business purposes.
  • The weather. China is a vast country, which means the climate can vary depending on your location. The northern region has short summers and can become extremely cold in the winter, while the central region is more temperate. Southern China has very short winters and very hot summers.

This is not a comprehensive list of things you’ll need to keep in mind for your move to China, but it should give you some food for thought. Good luck!

For the love of art and Chinese dating

Perhaps Chinese dating has piqued your interest in Chinese culture and art. The good news is that you don’t have to go all the way to China to experience Asian art and add to your collection; a wide range of pieces is available in the U.S.

Believe it or not, the best place to find Chinese art today is actually the United States. This could be particularly good news for those in Chinese dating relationships who also have a newfound love of art.

Recently, the demand for Chinese art has been on the rise, and there is plenty of it in the U.S. thanks to centuries of wealthy collectors, missionaries, importers, and immigrants. In fact, there is actually very little ancient Chinese art left in China itself following the Cultural Revolution of 1966-1976.

The art found throughout the U.S. isn’t just in auction houses and museums; it’s in houses, restaurants, and galleries. In fact, just a couple of years ago, Sotheby’s found a Song Dynasty-era white bowl on a family mantelpiece in upstate New York. The bowl is more than 1,000 years old and worth $2.2 million. The previous owners had purchased it for just $3 from a garage sale.

Unfortunately, China’s domestic marketplace is filled with fakes and forgeries. Many collectors have come to trust the American market more than China’s.

If you are considering buying some Chinese art, you might want to shop locally!

Asian singles find love matches for their dogs

Love is in the air for Asian singles and their dogs… Who doesn’t want their four-legged friend to find true love just like Lady and the Tramp did?

Dogs in a car

Believe it or not, one of the most popular dating shows in China and among many Asian singles is a dating show for dogs on the Chinese television network Jiang Su TV. The show is pretty straightforward; some dogs are thrown together and romance ensues with the help of a matchmaker.

In each episode, the program welcomes eight dog owners and their corresponding pups. The idea is sort of like the Westminster Kennel Dog Show meets The Dating Game; each canine contestant showcases his or her special tricks and good looks in hopes of attracting dogs of the opposite sex.

The show features a judge and some special guests that help move the matchmaking along. The show is actually a spinoff of a very similar dating game show that is intended for humans. The show was so popular among viewers in China that a canine version was developed to capitalize on its success.

When you meet that special someone online and the topic of television and entertainment comes up, why not ask if she likes this show?  It is a great conversation starter even if neither of you have ever seen the show. Perhaps your dog and her dog could even be contestants!
