Walter Mencken 1 p.m., May 1
Modeling Show at Smart Heroes Resort in Xiamen, China. To celebrate the opening of a nice resort called SMART HEROES and to show the public how HIP it is with WESTERN CULTURE, the cameras lined up from all local publications and radios to document this fiasco! To begin at 8pm with lots of free food and drinks along with rows of their version of fortune tellers, character artists and other western style entertainment BUT once the show was over and the pictures were taken for the publications, all the local Chinese that took special efforts to dress nice for the occasion called it a night and WENT HOME! I couldn't believe all the money that went into such an extravagant affair had nothing to do with bringing people in to dance and party all night as western culture knows so well. So, us foreigners stayed and enjoyed the remnants and food provided!
