Hong Kong Media Review The blogger wrote: I cover issues related to Hong Kong and Mainland Chinese politics The blogger, a self-proclaimed "China watcher", is informative and inquisitive with an open mind. On the other hand, insipid at times and monotonous at places, this blog tests the patience of the apolitical.

It is rare to see an expat blogger who possesses -- not merely superficially -- the uncommon skill of understanding the natives' language. This blog has a treasure trove of information for the "China watchers".
