As the whole world is going gaga over Khabib Nurmagomedov who yesterday fought the perfect fight. Too bad it was overshadowed by his antics after it was over. … Meanwhile, Nurmagomedov admitted he would have to be cautious initially before taking McGregor to the ground and mauling him.
As I try to get over this bizarre propaganda & cacophony about UFC, I bumped into a 19 year old Teenage heartthrob, who is currently the heavyweight boxing champion in Guizhou and aspire to fight in UFC within the next 4-5 years. Here’s how he describes his journey in this beautiful article penned by him.
“Hello to all the lovely people out here reading this article,
My name is Urison Kokulbekov and I was born and raised in a Muslim family that comes from the beautiful and picturesque valley of Pamir Mountains in Tajikistan 🇹🇯
I was born on 15th of May 1999 in Roshtqala, Pamir, Tajikistan. I took admission in school in 2006 . I studied in a small primary school where I got my first experience of life.
When I was in middle school, I was unsure what I wanted to do in life because I enjoyed all kind of sports. I decided, I could only do one sport for a living that I truly enjoyed. The two things that I have enjoyed the most in my life are boxing and studying. So I started training in 🥊 boxing and kickboxing.
These sports are very popular in my country just like soccerl in the USA and Cricket in India, England and Australia. From my middle school till now, I participated in many competitions such as Boxing, Soccer ️ and Science Olympiads.
In future I want to combine Boxing as a passion and studies as my career. I graduated from my high school in 2017. After passing high school, I came to People’s Republic of China for my college degree. Now I am here studying Chinese language and want to make career in either medicine, engineering or business administration.
China is the most interesting country on the globe and it always welcome international students and make them feel like a celebrity and provide them bestvamenities and conditions. China is an excellent place to study and make a good career.
In 2017, I participated in boxing competition in China and won, I became the Heavyweight Champion of Guizhou and was presented a beautiful belt by the organisers. Now I am preparing myself for another competition which will be held soon .”

For those of you concerned about voting in the USA, I suggest you get after it. I was disenfranchised by the Express mail two years ago. I paid China Post a lot of money and the ballot, which was supposed to be delivered in five business days, arrived at the Clerks office a week late. See: Fast Mail and Voting
This year I got after it earlier and by contacting my Township Clerk’s office, I was able to file a request for absentee ballot and receive it the same day. I filled out the request and took a picture with my cell phone. I emailed it to the Township Clerk and she immediately sent me the ballot by email. I checked with my advisers in the USA on the various ballot issues, Supreme Court Candidates, School Board, etc. and completed my ballot in a couple days.
The American Secretary of State has a website on voting and there is a postage paid envelope available which I used. First I had to get the envelope, with ballot enclosed to the Chengdu Consulate. They put the envelope in a diplomatic pouch and it gets mailed from the USA. A Chinese friend from Chengdu was visiting her parents in Guiyang during the October holiday so I gave the envelope to Daisy. She was going to deliver it to the Chengdu Consulate.
Daisy showed up at the Chengdu Consulate today and was turned away by the Chinese Police guarding the consulate. She wasn’t permitted to enter unless she had an American Passport. She called me, and while she was on hold, I went to the US Embassy website for Beijing. I called the number and told them the problem. They put me on hold and called the duty officer. in Chengdu. The Chengdu Consulate was closed due to the holiday.
They put me through to the duty officer, named Ben. Somehow my call was being handled by the emergency hotline. I gave Daisy’s phone number to Ben and the spelling of her name. He got after it. He was near the Consulate so he either went there himself, or had somebody go outside to find Daisy. Case closed. The ballot will be in the diplomatic pouch tomorrow morning.
I spoke to another American about voting. His state, Washington, has a pure vote by internet system available. I think each state has it’s own system I believe that they all take this subject seriously. If you want to vote, you can go to your State’s website, probably the Secretary of State in your state to find out how to do it. I hope you vote. A democracy is a terrible thing to waste.

I had the honor of attending the world premiere of Love is a Legend! To be completely honest when I got the invitation with ‘world movie premiere’ written on the card, I thought they had me confused with someone else. They couldn’t possibly want me to cover an event in the same room with Jennifer Lawrence hahaha, however instead of Jennifer Lawremce, I was ecstatic to meet my celebrity turned old friend Ana who was besieged with Chinese fans for a photograph.

Here is a good little review of what a teacher needs to do when coming from the USA to teach in China. Here’s the China Foreign Teacher Requirements in a short video. Thanks Julianne Jennings:

A Doctor by profession, an Indian by origin and a blogger by hobby, Dr. Pareesa Rabbani is a new writer in the city who writes with a brutal, ruthless honesty and her articles stir a frenzy everywhere.
Pareesa’s poetry as well as articles are mostly more of a reflection on her daily life encounters, life lessons, sarcasm, feminism and social reforms. Her posts capture the essence of multiple problems plaguing our country today because they seem to share the same roots.
Pareesa is very right in underscoring how the standards for men and those for women are so brazenly imbalanced and twisted, it is downright unacceptable. I do not know why or how we are allowing such blatant hypocrisy to reign so free in our world; I have yet to see people more chauvinistic and misogynistic than the ordinary Indian man.
Let’s not forget, however, that India too has had its fair share of shameless misogyny. I personally feel that she writes what encapsulate the oppressive reins that an Indian society strangles women with.
Dear Google !
It’s your birthday and then how can I wait not to wish you.
You have been my savior and saver all the time. I don’t know how I discovered you or maybe my parents introduced you to me but since day one you have always saved me without a fuss.
Even the invalid shit I type or search from dusk to dawn, or morning to noon, you never get tired and I still get a valid response from you. A stucked song in mind, a caller harassing me, a forgotten quote, a heartbreak, post break up, status to impress him or her, e-cards to bring a smile on their face, two minutes before entering examination hall, scrolling walls on browser, connecting us to the world, downloading movies from torrent, from parenting tips to makeup advice, from being a blogger to being a fame online, everytime I just need you or your google maps when I get lost in the woods. No one has helped me so much in life how you have without a return and without questioning me until and unless I mistyped it and you just ask me in a polite way ‘Did you mean this ?
I know I will never be able to thank you enough for the Wikipedia, PubMed, and songspk.com, various sites which you have provided us but yes I could only say that you have always been my virtual friend whom I can trust till eternity.

This is the biggest burger I’ve heard of in the USA. The burger at the Suidong Lu Tripsmith doesn’t quite measure up to this one. China has a way to go before it can match an American burger!
The final day of the Guizhou International Wine Festival is Wednesday, September 12. This is the day to visit as the vendors have there inventory clearance. The must either sell their wine or transport it back to their businesses . . .
It is hard to explain what it is like to live in a nice part of Guiyang, of Guizhou Province. It is best to just show a video of my neighborhood. My neighborhood is maybe ten or fifteen years old, and has been surpassed in values by newer, and better construction in and around Guiyang. My neighborhood is still very nice. I have a little electric bicycle that gets me up and down the hill in front of my apartment. I am on the twelfth floor and can ride my bicycle to the elevator . . . no stairs.
I had to to out for bread so I put the cell phone in my shirt pocket and tried to give you a flavor for what my neighborhood looks like. It is considered one of the nicer parts of Guiyang.
