Only an alien or a bumbling idiot would not know anything about China. I mean seriously, it's like one of the cradle of asian civlizations. There had been chinese in the Philippines long before the spanish colonial era, in some culture in this country influenced from the Chinese culture.

Exactly, we couldn't know about a country only by some words. In history, Philippines and China had very good relations. One Philippines King had come to visit China and dad in China, his secondly son had lived in China from then on.

Do you have to pay for your education or is it all provided by your government? And what about health care? is that free?

Now I'm 34 years old now, when I was a child, my parents should pay for my education from primary school to university, and our government paid the cost of my postgraduate education. Several years have past, now the Chinese government pays 9 years education of every child from primary school to junior middle school. Now every Chinese has health care, but different people have different health care.

@jaboUK Yes, but there are still many children leave school very young, because their parents want them to earn money and their parents think it is no use to go to school.

I'm so glad to meet you, my friend, in fact you are a Chinese too. There are so many beautiful places in China. One can't visit all of them even in his/her lives. Most people want to visit the Great Wall and the Imperial Palace in Beijing, the West Lake in Hangzhou, terra cotta army in Xi'an, etc.

I heard that there are many people who make caves as their homes. Is it really true? I read an article along with photographs. But, I did not believe it. What is the procedure to get into a Government job in China? What is the retirement age of a goveernment employee in China?

Exactly, there are some people living the caves in some places of China, we call it "yaodong", but now most people move to the commodity house. But there are still some old people living in caves because they have adapted this kind of life. If we want to get a government job, we should take an exam at first and pass it. The retirement age of a common government employee is that: for male, 60years old, and for female, it is 55years old.

Are Chinese people only allowed to marry someone who is Chinese as well? In college, I met someone who is Chinese and he said he likes me, however he had major hesitations in courting me since I am not Chinese. We all moved on now though, I am maried now to someone else and the Chinese guy I was talking about is still my friend.

It is an old tradition that it is better to marry with Chinese people, but now more and more people marry with other people, it's nothing serious.
