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!
