Multiple local governments including those of Handan in Hebei province, Jinan in Shand
上海会所品茶微信ong province, and Tianjin have banned the so-called Beijing Bikini－which refers to men who roll up their sh
irts or T-shirts to expose their bellies in public places in summer. Aimed at promoting civilized behavior, the ban is a tim

Yet the good intentions of the local governments cons
上海会所titute only the first step toward promoting civilized behavior, par
ticularly in public places. So the authorities should consider all possible options
and devise an appropriate plan to ensure the ban on Beijing Bikini is actually implemented.上海会所品茶微信
In this regard, Handan’s move offers some food for thought, as civic inspectors in Hanshan district gift a T-shirt to men in B上海会所

上海会所Contestant Lin Wanlu was adamant in her criticism of a pro-western a
ttitude in China. She advocated that Chinese should first try their best to dig out and di
gest their own culture, and then extend the wisdom of Chinese traditional culture as a treasure to the world.
上海会所品茶微信”After over 100 years of humiliation by the west, many Chinese still cannot step out of the sh
adow that Chinese culture is inferior to that of the west. This is eroding our cultural self-confidence. Now
it is time for us to speak out and tell Chinese stories both past and present to the whole world,” she said.上海会所品茶微信
“Chinese culture seeks a balance between yin and yang. We believe that only in this way could people build a harmonious wor
