Old Culture Vs. New Culture
I just wish to know from part of those that have been in china how different if so,
Is the new Chinese generation from their older? I did read an entered book of Chinese customs and courtesy but for the most part upon my experience have notice that most of it are not utilized or followed by the new generation. Please comment it would be interesting to know how china cultures its constantly changing.

Sorry for last post :-) i mistakenly hit enter,
Now in those days most Chinese parents allow their children to choose who they will marriage but still many the others choose a guy or girl friend utilizing a match maker or by going in to down town or city square J -> there is a lesson about this on Chinese Pod.
Other example could be the change of the government from teaching traditional character and the creation of the Hanyun Pinyin system.
Any other person that can help in this theme?

Hey there, it's good to witness that almost all parents in China allow their children to choose their own future spouse. But the sad thing is, some still can not find their Mr or Miss right in their right age. So, match makers play very important role. These match makers are not professional, they are probably middle-aged women with a complex social interpersonal relationship.
The new generation is sooo... different from the older generation. They are the single child in the family, spoiled! They sometimes take everything for granted.
