A Little More David Feng on the Rails

I’ve just been notified that I’ve made myself yet into the rail world again in China. I’m part of page 18 on the November 2011 edition of CRH Magazine, available on most HSR routes in China.

You’ll see me at the bottom left hand corner of the page. I’m featured there as a regular rider, and that was me on train G1004 as Tracy and I hurtled north from Zhuhai North to Nanjing South. That was a five-leg journey in just one day!

I’ve also broken 20,000 km on the rails as of late — I am very close to 21,000 km after a nine-hour trip on CRH train D28. We are off to Tianjin (again!) within the week…

Little note about adding Friends…

9 December 2009 at 10:11

…I check all Friends applications as on this site I have “sensitive information”. No, nothing reactionary, just that I’ve my phone number and stuff…

…which really doesn’t bother me a lot. But there’s something to be said about “SPAMMERS”, who’ll gladly fill on that bit of info and wake me up at 1:45 AM…

Here’s the deal: I add:

  • EVERYONE who writes me a message telling me where they met me

  • people I *might* know with 6 or more mutual friends
  • people with 15 or more mutual friends in any case (special exceptions are special cases)

I might, at times, just simply ask you “hey there —who do you know me from”? Don’t become all scared and feel like this is the Department of National Security breathing down you… I just want to know that our ties are real, legit and that there’s none of this spamming between us.

Sound cool? :-)
