EU is likely going to put tariffs on Chinese BEVs pretty soon. My personal take has always been that BEVs are merely a ploy by the CCP to gain marketshare in Western markets. Beyond that, there is no real interest by Chinese automakers, and likely they will abandon BEVs the moment it becomes convenient for them.

After #JoyOfLife2, my brain is rebelling at the thought of watching anything, well, not as good 😅. #TheDouble is very buzzy, but I know I will be very harsh on it (in terms of writing & acting), so I have decided to watch Under the Microscope, starring Zhang Ruo Yun. It's about math and taxes. Ikr?? But it's seriously more interesting that that!
Also, With You, an anthological TV show about #COVID19's effects on #China's society.

Leaked Russian Documents Reveal Deep Concern Over Chinese Aggression

The fact their even secretly acknowledging the possibility of the Chinese dagger behind them is progress, (it's far too late as their already a vassal) but it's at least something. It will get even more blatant, that recent Russian women seeking Chinese men thing was faked but it'll be real soon enough given the casualty rate.

It's just after midnight in #China & thus after the 2 days (& about 9 hours) of the #Gaokao, the hardest Uni entrance #exam in the world.

They stop construction work & reroute traffic for this every year.

#Students get a celebratory flag-waving parade to the school.

This year (2024) 13.42 million students have (or will still have to) taken this exam.

That's about the same amount of humans as live in #Burundi.

I too experienced many points of friction when visiting and working in China. My nationality and ethnicity was often either positive (Singaporeans are so good at English and Mandarin!!) when geo-political relations were good, or absolutely tragic (you are all hanjian race traitors!!) when they were not.

I’m suspicious of all attempts to bring us into the ‘Chinese fold’.
