Introducing theme weeks!
January 29th 2018
The very idea of Mingbai is to explain Chinese culture in a simple, boiled-down way. Because of the short form, there's often little time to put things in perspective. To deal with this, we're introducing theme weeks!
This week we're doing "Stereotype Week" where we introduce loved and hated archetypes of Chinese society. Stay tuned to learn more about "oily uncles", "green tea bitches" and more.
We aim to do one theme week per month. Upcoming themes include "Chinese New Year Traditions" in February and a "Women's Week" in March. We hope you like them!
Happy Holidays (and happy SURVEY!)
December 22nd 2017
The Mingbai team is so excited about how much has happened in the weeks since our launch last month. While we go on holiday (don’t worry, we’ll be back in January!) we’d be very happy if you’d fill out this short survey to help us get better!
Thanks for your support, happy holidays, and see you in 2018!

The weekend is here! We hope you're enjoying the e-mails (and that you'll share them with the new "forward to a friend" feature. We'll be back on Monday!
Tips For Gmail Users
November 15th 2017
Since Gmail introduced inbox tabs, most newsletters go to the “Promotions” tab. If you’d like Gmail to sort your Mingbai e-mails into your “Primary” tab instead, simply drag the e-mail from the “Promotions” area to the “Primary” tab to make Gmail remember that this is where you want it to go!
Mingbai on Social Media
November 14th 2017
After a successful launch yesterday we’re hoping to get some social media love as well. We’ve made a Facebook page that you can like via this link: https://www.facebook.com/getmingbai/.
Mingbai: Understand China
November 13th 2017
Today we’re very excited to launch “Mingbai”, the daily newsletter that teaches you about China. The first e-mail goes out today. If you missed it, you can 1) sign up using the form to the right and receive future Mingbais right in your inbox, and 2) visit the Archive to see previously published Mingbais (just one so far!).
We’ve been made aware of an error occurring when signing up using certain types of smartphones. We’re working on fixing the issue, and in the meantime you can easily sign up using a laptop or desktop instead.
We hope you enjoy reading Mingbai as much as we like writing it. We’ll be in touch with more news soon!
