Here is an easy dish to create and it tastes quite authentic. You don't need a wok to cook it either but stainless is probably the next best thing.
Here are the ingredients.
1 lb Pork
3 Carrots
3 medium Potatoes
1/2 lb Mushrooms
1/3 cup water
Salt (just a little)
Soy Sauce
Hoisin Sauce
Ground Ginger
Chinese Star Aniseed

Chop the meat and vegetables into small pieces. Remember you want to be able to pick them up easily with chop sticks.
Heat your pan using 6 tablespoons of oil and put in the vegetables.
Stir them well and cover to let them heat for 5 minutes.
Add 1/4 cup soy sauce and 3 tablespoons of hoisin sauce.
Stir well and cover again for 5 minutes
Add the water, pork and 3 teaspoons of ground ginger and 2 teaspoons of star aniseed. ( you can use more or less to your personal taste) and a dash of salt.
Stir well simmer on medium until it starts to thicken.
Serve with rice.
Email me and I'll send you a picture of the finished product. It's very tasty and easy to make!

I made a backup copy of the XP Chinese CD, yes it's an iso. It works, I tried it. I'll bring it to the next Zhong Guo Jie class.

It's hard to choose which system is best isn't it? Socialist era rule whereby the government exacts total control or the opposite where everything is wide open and the risks are at a different level.
I find it interesting that even with such good technology, China's internet access point always seem to be riddled with hackers who've figured out when a new computer has 'jumped on' the net there and the hacking begins.
Don't think because you have a mac or Linux based system that you're safe. Hackers use all languages now so it's really just a matter of time in many cases.

Well, we just came back from the Bahamas and when we were getting off the cruise ship, both of us (Michael being the US citizen me being the green card holder who refuses to give up the Chinese citizenship) were thrown into the Non-Citizen line. As most of you probably know, US permanent residents always go into the US Citizen line, so after waiting on line forever, we asked the immigration officer about the new change, we were told that it was a recent change made by the Bush administration. He is really great at improving efficiency…if you travel overseas and you will understand how "efficient" the immigration control process is…

For $30 I am probably willing to give it a try. Although an electronic dictionary is really a good tool as well. Let us know what you think about it!

Sweet!!! Now make sure you carry it with you at all time, and use it. The one I got for Michael has been sitting pretty, we need to do a better job with it…

Hehe, the Great Firewall, that's funny…
It sucks that they are blocking all the external sites. I think the authorized website, such as Yahoo, Google, Wiki Chinese are accessible, but not the rest because the Chinese are not blocking the individual sites, they are blocking everything external, and unblocking the ones that they'd made agreements with. The scary thing is that if other countries are going to follow, look at Australia, they are not too much different from China today in terms of the internet control mechanism.
It just sucks…

I don't know if Thomas will be at the Jan 10th class, but maybe send him an email and see if he can bring a copy to you.

I invested in the Besta CD636. It's a 11 language dictionary that also has the ability to play short movies, mp3's and even offer up lessons in English for several topics. It also has a stroke practicer that teaches you how to properly write the characters and has voice ability as well that pronounces the words.
I've just touched the surface of what it can do and I'm glad I invested in it in spite of the $350.00 price tag. It's really a palm top computer with multi-language ability that helps you learn Chinese and other langauages.

Also know as the Great Firewall of China. The justifications run the gamit from keeping morality standards at a certain level to uncertainty about possible wide spread attacks on government systems. No real standard for what can and can't be accessed.
I can't get to meetup but can get to my live and yahoo sites and blogs. Go figure.
Either way, one can't expect a 5000 + year old culture to change overnight.
