nǐ kànkan ，yī ge Zhōngguó fùháo zài Fǎguó mǎi le sānshí wàn de hóngjiǔ 。zánmen Zhōngguórén zǒngsuàn yángméitǔqì le ！guò liǎng tiān ，zài zào ge hángkōngmǔjiàn gěi tāmen kànkan 。
Check this out: a Chinese millionaire bought a bottle of wine in France for 300,000 RMB. We Chinese people are finally feeling proud and looking good! In no time at all, we'll build an aircraft carrier and have them take a look!
zhè jiào shénme yángméitǔqì ？rénjiā dōu xiàohuà wǒmen shì bàofāhù ne ！zài shuō ，wǒmen shì hépíng juéqǐ ，yòu bù xiǎng zàishìjièshàng chēngwángchēngbà ，zào shénme hángmǔ ？
What is there to be proud of? Everyone jokes that we're new money. Plus, we're rising peacefully. We don't want to become world tyrants. Why would we build an aircraft carrier?
ai ，wǒmen yǒuqián mǎi hóngjiǔ ，zào hángmǔ ，guān tāmen shénme shì ？tāmen jiùshì bùshuǎng wǒmen Zhōngguó xiànzài qiángdà le ，hái juéde shì bāguóliánjūn nà shíhou ，wǒmen hǎo qīfu 。
Agh, what does it have to do with them if we have the money to buy wine and build aircraft carriers? They're just not happy to see that we're powerful now. They still think it's the time of the Boxer Rebellion and they can pick on us!
rénjiā yěméiyǒu zhème shuō 。guónèi yǒuxiērén tài piānjī le ，lǎo dǎzhe àiguózhǔyì de qíhào mànmà wàiguórén 。qíshí zhè cái shì méi zìxìn ne ！
They haven't said that. Some people in China are too extreme. They're always railing against foreigners under the pretense of patriotism. Actually, that's really low self-confidence!
