There is a lingo in the dialect that literally means &ldquo;people from the countryside,&rdquo; and it is said that older generations of Shanghainese apply this phrase to most visitors.</p> <p>In&nbsp;Beijing, money alone just can&rsquo;t get its way; power trumps it. Though Beijing and Shanghai, both as international metropolises, are land of opportunities for people in the rest of China, Shanghai is ideal for self-made men from scratch, and Beijing is less so, because people believe it is harder to climb the social ladder there if you don&rsquo;t have connections.</p>

    I think the biggest and best example is the World Expo. I took it as an attempt to up stage the expo. The problem was nobody who wasn't already in China anyway cared.

    upstage the olympics you mean no?  I've come accross more anti-老外 and anti-外地 sentiment among the  老北京ers. but then, i have lived here longer, plus i can't understand that awful language that is 上海话

    哈哈哈哈,Ami,也许有人包养了,她们就会胖起来了!第一张照片里面,左右两个,应该是65和94号,身材不是挺好的嘛?

    但麻烦你了,上海Vs北京的这个题目,每天都在我们家发生着,有些腻了,哈哈哈!

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,但你可知道,我是多么不愿意留在北京呢嘛?

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈,我也喜欢44号!在第二张照片里面,远角的那个,好像就是她了,好像挺“突出”的,正面看不出来!

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,敢问一句,我的艰辛有谁知道?

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,老实说,有些时候,我真的不肯定是为了什么!

    答:3号是扁平!111号适合当兵或做警察!

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,还是八卦这些比较好,就跟大部分中国人一样,家里的事,还是留在家里吧!111号的“肥皂盒”挺深的,从侧面看,165很适合包养!

    @Ami:那洋妞们是什么反应呢?她们应该都很重视交流的,而且更关心的是对方到底是个什么样的人吧?

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,小徒弟,你准备好擦鼻血的纸巾了吗?你看看这些怎么样?我看了之后,不能不怀疑,肚皮舞跟肚兜的渊源也挺接近的!

    Hahahaha ... GodFather, not that I would like to indulge you, but for this occassion, I will "borrow" your own words:

    "S/he that lives in glass house should not throw stone"

    ... I am sure you have your own "dialect", so do feel free to express yourself using any language as you please, someone might respond to you :)

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    ...

    Hahahaha ... GodFather ... interesting to know that there are 39 thousand plus languages and dialects, but more interestingly, you have decided not to learn Chinese while you are here, but then, my Mandarin is probably not much better than yours ...

    Just to clarify, since you seem to care so much, choice of  using any language and/or dialect is part of what it means to have freedom, something you could try to be more familiar with, however, it also needs to be done out of habit and reason ... so as rude as it might seem to you for Ami to have (suddenly) changed channel, there is no major reason she cannot either ...

    I am only sorry that you feel that way ...

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,Ami,真的很失礼,没有读过鲁迅!:)

  • 叮噹叔叔 (令狐叮噹)

    。。。

    哈哈哈哈,你是说这个“肚兜”的嘛?我回头给这些大小狼,和女孩子们,再找一些更“喷血”的!
