Bo Xilai Scandal..

Postby auntieM » Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:37 pm

Rumoured to be one of the biggest corruption cases in China so far.
Wonder if there are others following the story too?

Am reading from chinese and english newspapers....stories quite riveting. There are just so many things that were otherwise hidden from public view (eg his prior marriage, his family's biz empire). Not sure how else the story will unfold.

Yah I was wondering who on earth names their kid Gua Gua. Then I saw chinese papers. it's 瓜瓜,the only thing i could think of is maybe they wanted it to be like 顶呱呱. but it's such a bizzare mandarin name.

Now really gua1 gua2... everyone looking at them and laughing. Although i find it quite strange that Gua Gua gets protected by US Homeland Security. They really believe his family is being politically persecuted, when it could totally true that they are corrupt murderers.
