Ernie Diaz

An expat from the cradle, Ernie devotes himself to taking the “blah” out of “blogging”, and putting forth the proposition that there’s no real knowing a country as big and old as China. When not engaged in word-smithery, he enjoys conspiracy theory, Iron Maiden solos, and processing his karma from a past life as a mountebank. He has written full time for China Expat since 2007 and is based in Beijing.

  1. Ernie, The China Totems article reposting that you’ve done seems to be doing quite well.
    If you want to use other articles I have written for a similar purpose let me know .

    Send them over, please Hendon – your work is much valued here!

    Love your article about Teochew and the language. Well researched and amazed me that you find out the differences, even up to the “hokkien tension”. It’s quite true, I don’t know why, even in Malaysia it’s always tension with the louder rough Hokkien!

    Thanks Den, to whom one can only assume is a Teochew reader!

    What an honor, Peter, thank you! I dare say by far the lion’s share of the articles on this site are by me at this point. If you want the travel ones, you can click through the archives, although some were lost in our last site redesign. Hope you have a fantastic time in Bama and points beyond!
