    During the Qing Dynasty, China mainly used a bimetallic money system comprising copper coins and silver ingots. Copper coins include 1 wen and 10 wen for daily use, where silver ingots are in 1 tael (37.8g) or 10 taels, up to 50 taels max. The conversion factor is 1,000 wen = 1 tael of silver In the 1700s, purchasing power of one wen: 1. Three wen can buy a steamed bun 2. 16 wen can buy a bowl of noodles 3. 2,400 wen (2.4 taels of silver) can pay for one year school fees In other words, one wen is roughly equal to a modern 20 cent coin, but silver tael was highly overvalued compared to modern era. E.g. In swordfighting movies the small silver fragment that the hero slap onto the restaurant table to pay for food has the purchasing power of a modern S$50 - S$100 bill. If we take 2018 SG median monthly income of S$4,400 and buy silver at current prices (~ S$33 per tael) we can buy 133 taels of silver. That is 133,000 wen which can buy over 8,300 bowls of noodles which is about eight times the purchasing power of modern SG dollars. In other words, if convert SGD into silver bars/coins and time travel to 1700s China, can eat cai png until puke and piakpiak ATBs until uplorry from dehydration!

    Wow. But still prefer tier 2 or 3 cities... 200rmb to tapow a 19 or 20 yo xmm is good enough for me. Most of the ktvs then, the girls are usually below 23. Anything above no value. Haha. They usually become mamasan. thats why we see those tianahmen or vegas or peace center prcs are like 25 to mid 30s. And when u want to them to overnight, they charge u 200 to 300sgd. Thats like macau pricing. Lololol.

    Dongguan (东莞) is a factory city in China which gained notoriety in the early 2010's for its burgeoning sex trade, popular among HK, Taiwan businessmen and locals alike, and also bery well known in NK and bike forums. At the peak around 2012, services were so professional and standardized that they were considered as "ISO"-level processes. In recent years, multiple police raids have forced many such joints to close or go underground. According to the documentary, after police raids closed such services, sexual assault cases in Dongguan have started to rise.

    i usually go to a fixed club in shanghai where my local guys r familiar with the boss. usually open a bottle of champagne and a bottle or 2 of whiskey. apparently, the hostess get a higher commission for champagne and she will get a few of her jiemeis over as well. so hardly any drunk ginnas dare bother.

    In swordfighting movies and TV shows, silver ingots are depicted as consistently boat-shaped yuanbao with perfectly shiny finish. Real silver ingots are less attractive, cast in several different shapes and having dull greyish colour with yellow or greenish tone. If you have 100 taels of silver to spare you are already considered wealthy, even though that is only about S$3k in today's silver prices, which is less than SG median monthly pay. If there were a time machine back to China in 1700s, basically all sinkies can become land owners because an average landed house only costs 216 taels of silver which is around S$7k - less than one-third the cost of a COE cert!
