Blocking all VPN services in China by 2018??!! WHAT!?

Social Media on Fire

I arrived in San Francisco on Monday where I met up with my good friend Lauren. After I’d settled into her cute, little guestroom, we sat down to catch up and talk about China and YouTube. It didn’t take us long to start discussing the news that had been spreading widely around social media the last few days. Western news outlets had stated that the Chinese government was going to shut down all VPN services by next year.

We were both surprised to hear this again because it hadn’t been long since they’d announced that they wanted to ‘clean’ up the internet. When Lauren’s husband came home from work, we all sat down and discussed this issue. None of us thought that the Chinese government would be dumb enough to do something like that.

Discussing on Camera

After talking about it for an hour or so, we were so convinced that this was misleading news which was why we just had to make a discussion video about the it so it wouldn’t scare our followers who were about to go to China.

We shared one part of the discussion on my channel which you can see here:

CHINA BLOCKS ALL VPNS BY 2018??!!

The second part of our discussion was shared on Lauren’s channel:

Just Misleading News

Luckily, after a few days, we learned that it was misleading news from the Western media. The Chinese government had forced national VPN services to close down but all international services were still allowed to operate inside China.

It was a scary moment when I heard the news first but luckily I use the super strong, well-working Express VPN which goes through every single one of these threats from the government without any problems.

If you want to make sure that you’ll have access to the open internet when going to China, I suggest you to check out Express VPN as well.

Ending one thing and starting a new

It’s over now. It’s over! It may sound more aggressive than it is but she left. My sister has gone home again. Her boyfriend misses her and she’s looking forward to seeing him again and start her steady life in Denmark once again. I’ve had the pleasure of traveling with her for almost a month and we’ve had such a great time. Of course, there have been moments where we needed time off from each other but all in all it has been a successful trip around North East China.

我认识一个新的中国朋友浩然,他来自于武汉理工大学,然后我们在聊天的时候,我们聊了这个事情。他说,他的同学曾经在贵州做过跟留守儿童相关的义工。朋友给了我他的联系方式。

The silence of religious people in China

When Mao Zedong became the chairman of China in 1949, he decided to get rid of all religion. The only thing the Chinese people should believe in was the Great Chairman’s word. Before that many different religions were practiced around the big country but suddenly one day they weren’t allowed anymore.

Where should I study Mandarin in China?

When you want to study Mandarin in China, there are different factors to consider before moving over there to start your studies. I didn’t know much about this before I ended up in southern China studying the language where I think I learned a bit about the ups and downs on this topic. Here are a few things to consider before deciding where you want to study Mandarin in China.

Can I be gay in China?

The first time, I was in China, I went to Chengdu to travel for a week. At that time, I’d realized that the Chinese guys were quite cute but when I arrived in the capital of Sichuan province, I soon discovered that this was not the place to find a boyfriend for me anyway because every time I started talking to a handsome boy, I fast learned I’d met another gay friend. One nice guy even told me that Chengdu was the place to go for a more relaxed atmosphere when being gay in China. Later on, back in Beijing, I was invited to the biggest gay club/ gay museum in town with my Chinese friend. I was surprised by how open Beijing’s citizens were towards homosexuality (well some of them anyway). Today’s topic is homosexuality in China.

How to apply for university in China

I’m from a country where applying for university is the absolute easiest thing to do. It takes two minutes to log into the Danish university website, type in personal number and click on three degrees in Denmark, you wish to apply for. We only have three choices and a month before starting university, we will receive an email informing us where we are going to study. Before going abroad, I didn’t know about personal statements and recommendations. Now, I know and I learned it the hard way. I learned it when I screwed it up in China. Applying in China is not as easy as Denmark but not horribly problematic either. It can happen and with a little advice from here, I hope it’ll go smooth and easy for you.

Why Valentinex3 suck when being single in China

First, before I get started on this semi-negative article, I just want to say sorry for being pessimistic on Valentine’s day (probably because I’m from a country where it’s not a big thing or because I don’t have a bf or even a cute flirt buying me a rose) but I still want to share my thoughts on Valentine’s with you guys.
