1. New page added: About Chinese Dragon

This page will include:
  • Introduction of Chinese dragon;
  • Comparison between western dragon and Chinese dragon;
  • A Chinese story on dragon.

2. New layout of "" has been launched

In the past one month, I have spent a lot of time to make a new design of this web site, which has delayed my releasing of this issue of EZine. I have changed the top logo picture into a famous traditional painting. I have also changed the colours. Now the site looks more like what I originally supposed: a traditional and professional outlook.

Also I have used a three-column layout, which can accommodate more information. I wish you like my new design.

3. The "Chinese Culture Online Shop" has been expanded

I have added more goods to the shop including clothes for both men and women, Chinese symbole T-shirt etc.

I have also reorganized the shop into several departments, which makes it quicker for visitors to find their interested stuff. Now there are six departments now:

  • Woman's Clothes
  • Women's Shoes
  • Chinese Symbol T-Shirt
  • Men's Clothes
  • Books on China
  • Homeware etc.

4.Pages being written: On Chinese Ancient Literature

At the moment I am spending time to research and write about Chinese ancient literature. Basically I will introduce the four major Chinese classic literature masterpieces. Like other pages, I will make a very concise yet insightful introduction of what these masterpieces are all about. You will see these writings soon.

In the modern time, because of the explosive expansion of information, the essence of traditional human culture has been more and more buried and overlooked. In China, the deliberate damage of traditional culture by the Chinese Communist Party has made the popular understandings about traditional Chinese culture far from being correct. In this web site, I will try to clear away the dirt that is covering the essence of Chinese culture and reveal the real valuable parts.


Thank you for reading. See you next month!
