Taishanese pride

Posted on: August 24, 2009 | By Maigal

For those curious readers, here is one small piece of info about me. I’m from Taishan also know as Hoisan, Guangdong Province of China. Taishan is located in the southern part of China and it’s 140 kilometer west of Hong Kong. Most Taishanese live in small villages where they own a small piece of farm land given by Chairman Mao Ze Dong. It’s a neat place to visit and filled with culture. In China, the main spoken dialects are Mandarin and Cantonese but my dialect is Taishanese originated from Taishan obviously. Some Chinese think Taishanese sounds harsh and considered a low class language but I think it’s sounds cute. For those Taishanese out there, don’t be ashamed to speak Taishanese in public. It’s time to bring out the Taishanese pride. :-)

$99 – ME by Melia Cancun

Mexican resorts took a hit when swine flu broke out, but there’s no question that the country has some of the best vacation spots in the world. ME by Melia for instances, is modern, and chic. I stayed at the ME about a year ago and will never forget how beautiful and breath taking this resort feels. The service is great, the staffs look good, and the view to the beach is phenomenal.

This resort has a great internet cafe where you can surf for free. The Lounge/club produces the best drinks and music. You can have a great time and dance your night away without leaving the resort.

Right now, ME rooms are going for $99 a night. I paid $150 when I was there, so this is definitely a steal. Check out Travelzoo for more info.

But better move fast — the sale ends today. Need motivation? Check out these pictures I took from my trip.
