App Description

"A Decade of Writing" brings together a collection of the published work of four well known expatriates.

With articles taken from the archives of the popular China Expat magazine & website, this collection provides memories of early days, provoke exclamations of “I didn’t know that!” and inspire today’s generation of China expats to get out, engage and explore.

In an age when blogs are mainly blah-blah, the articles in this App will provoke, provide food for thought and raise a wry smile.
