So this is a bit of a long shot, but I’m wondering if anyone here lives/has lived in China and has karaoke as a hobby?

I’m going to be studying in Guilin for about a month in October. I’m wondering how the karaoke systems there work and if I’m likely to find the songs I want to sing. So

1. Do…

1. As far as I’m aware, no. Most KTV places use their in-house or a generic system that don’t have the save songs function, although this is starting to change as the larger chains are introducing apps that allow you to book rooms, preselect songs, etc. 

2. They will usually have some Japanese songs. The number of Japanese songs will depend on where you go, but don’t expect too much if the songs you’re looking for aren’t the mainstream bubblegum pop (chances are they won’t have the entire GACKT discography but may have ten or so of his older singles). If you know Chinese, a quick search of 日本歌 KTV 桂林 should give you some good recommendations. English songs are a bit “better”but again, if it’s not mainstream pop, don’t expect too much.

3. Rates change depending on the time of week and time of day. Weekends will be more expensive generally. Late night sessions will be cheaper. Weekday day-afternoon sessions will be cheap too. Depending on the package it may come with snacks/fruit/drink, alternatively it may be a minimum per person spend. Day rates can be as low as $30-$50 for a small room that will fit 6 people comfortably, with a minimum spend on snacks/drinks per person (usually this will add up to no more than about $10 USD per person for 3 hours in total). Friday and Saturday nights will be more expensive. Head to Dianping.com for groupon deals first - a lot of places may have deals that can be purchased online and used on the day.

Thank you, that’s very helpful!

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

I want one.

tell me a secret

One time during class my drama/english teacher, who’s a devout vegan and all about not killing animals, accidentally stepped on a ladybug. He froze up and slowly cradles it in his hand and he was so heartbroken and started quoting Hamlet.

I didn’t have the heart to tell him that it was a red m&m.

I can’t breathe

Chicken Boo, what’s the matter with you?
You don’t act like the other chickens do.
You wear a disguise to look like human guys,
But you’re not a man, you’re a Chicken Boo.
