The resident of Chengdu, Sichuan province, is a popular vlogge

and his reviews of digital appliances have won him more than 124,000 fans on social media.

He had never eaten hotpot alone before. However, he happened to be in

Beijing on business and when he heard the restaurant offered stuffed toys as co

mpanions for solo diners he decided to visit and produce a vlog so his fans would know how it felt.

Knowing that a large number of unattached people often

spend festivals alone, Pu hoped his vlog would help them enjoy their solitude.

Even though he was the only solo diner in the restaurant, Pu said he didn’t feel at all awk

ward eating with a toy companion. The vlog showed him eating casually, occasionally scrolling through his phone, an

d having a video chat with his family. The restaurant was full of diners, but no one gave him a second glance.

“Overall, it was very enjoyable; the only thing was that I can’t eat too much so I only ordered a small amount of food,” he said.

When the desired train tickets are not available at the tick

et booking site and the app of the China Railway Corporation, a person can use the “waiting” function, and the system will add the wanted ticket information to a list.

One person could make an order for three tickets in the waiting list, and the function will be

free and much more efficient than other third-party software to grab tickets, according to the operator.

When ticket buyers cancel or change their tickets, the system will allocate the returned tickets to waiting buyers on the list.

To use this function, people have to pass a verification process on their status through facial recognition.

They will have to prepay the maximum price for each ticket, and once the

Guests share thoughts on president’s speech

What impressed me most is that President Xi highlighted the importance of sustainable d

evelopment. The hosting of the Horticultural Expo is the best chance to raise people’s attention to the conce

pt of sustainability, both in China and around the world.President Xi outlined his commitment to open and gre

en development as well as underlined China’s dedication to conserving the ecosystem now and for generations to come.

Xi’s call for countries to work together for the common goal o

f improving the global ecosystem aligns well with the Paris Agreement. This is an excellent foll

ow-on from the commitment outlined in the communique from the Belt and Road Forum.

In this communique, to which the UAE is a signatory, countries ag

reed that cooperation will be open and clean, with green development promoted.

The expo attracted widespread global participation, and I think everybody will recog

nize China’s vision in green development and its resolve to build a green future.
