Chinese Cinderella
Chinese Folktales have morals like most folktales. It often tells stories of human nature, historical or legendary events, love, and the supernatural, or stories explaining natural phenomena and distinctive landmarks.

Calligraphy means 'good' 'writing'. Chinese calligraphy is an art form, and calligraphers are highly respected.

Chinese ink- It is solid, and usually comes in the shape of sticks. The black ink is made from the soot of pinewood or oil smoke, and a gum substance. Often, these sticks are decorated and highly prized by themselves.

Chinese inkstone- Inkstones are made from stone or pottery. They are flat and hard, and are sometimes shaped with pretty designs.

Chinese brush- Brushes are made from animal hair that is bundled together and put on bamboo reeds. The Chinese use hair from wolves, sheep, rabbits, deer, foxes, or mice depending on the type of writing.

In China, it was a custom to give firstborn sons great, long, important names. Second sons were given only little, short names.
There were two brothers named Chang, which meant "Little or nothing" and Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo, which meant "the most wonderful boy in the whole world" .
Chang once fell into a well, and was taken out quickly. After a few months, Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo fell in the same well.
When Chang told his mother, she repeated the name so many times, that it was a long time until Tikki Tikki Tembo-no Sa Rembo-chari Bari Ruchi-pip Peri Pembo got out.
Ever since then, the Chinese have given their children short and sweet names.
Sun Yat-sen was a Chinese Revolutionary, first president and founding father of the Republic of China. He was born in1866. Even though Sun Yat-sen was the son of a farmer, Sun was educated at an English speaking school in Honolulu, Hawaii, and later at the New College of Medicine in Hong Kong where he qualified as a doctor in 1892.
Sun did not become a doctor. Instead, by the time of his graduation, he had become convinced that the Manchu dynasty was corrupt and that while it existed, China would fail. He decided to let China unite fully before he became president.
When Sun died of cancer in 1925, China was ruled by the warlords but the authority of the Guomindang in and around Canton continued to grow. In later years, the Guomindang and the Communists were to become bitter enemies culminating in the civil war from 1945 to 1949. Ironically, Sun's widow, Soong Ching-ling, became vice-chairman of the Chinese People's Republic in 1950.

I think Adeline's school respected Sun Yat-sen as he was a great inspiration for the next leaders. He was probably a trustworthy man and a great role model as a person.

In 1832, officials from Britain’s East India Company began to explore Hong Kong for the purpose of trading in tea, silk, and opium. They clearly said no. The Brits were outraged because the Chinese government was in effect shutting them off by outlawing their primary trade item. The Opium war was the result. The treatment of the Chinese by the British government was decidedly negative, and many historians agree it laid the foundation for the suspicious and defensive way the Chinese people view westerners, even today. This international presence is responsible for the European feeling that exists in Hong Kong today, as well as the varied architecture seen all over the city.
While the living British presence may have waned, on the streets of Hong Kong, visual vestiges of Britain remain including the city's numerous streets named after British people including Prince Edward Road and Wellington Street.

The term Kung Fu refers to the martial arts of China. Kung Fu originated in a place called the Shaolin Temple, where monks practiced Kung Fu for health and self-defense during their quest for enlightenment. Kung Fu is also referred to as Wushu and Gung Fu.
Many Americans believe that Kung Fu is a term which describes a single martial art, much like Taekwondo, Judo, or Aikido. In reality, Kung Fu is a general term which includes hundreds of styles of Chinese martial arts.
Another misconception is that Kung Fu is a "soft" style compared with Karate or other "hard" styles. This is not so: each Kung Fu style contains both hard and soft techniques.

Before Buddha became enlightened, he was once a prince. His name wasn't Buddha, it was Siddhartha Gautama. He got tired of the wealthy life, and left to see the world outside of the palace walls.Outside the walls, he saw people suffering, something he had never actually experienced. Soon he saw a nearly lifeless man and his to-be widow crying. When he returned to the palace, He gave a servant his place, telling him to live like a king.
In the 2,500 years since the Buddha's enlightenment, Buddhism has spread over many countries, split into numerous sects, and adopted a wide variety of beliefs, practices, rituals and customs. However, an essential unity centered around the teachings of the Buddha underlies these differences.
In Mahayana Buddhism, the universe is populated with celestial buddhas, bodhisattvas, and deities that assist and inspire the Buddhists. Among the most popular are Kuan Yin, the Medicine Buddha, the Laughing Buddha and the Green and White Taras(Stars). These and other fascinating figures are explored in this section.
