Ten years ago when the 2009 World Stamp Exhibition took place in Luoyang, Henan province, Li Shaohua, a fellow of the Al
l-China Philatelic Federation who has mobility impairment, founded the China Disabled Persons Stamp Collecting Association.

bers. Over 200 members from the association attended the world stamp exhibition on the first day, bringing 124 sets of stamps.
“Establishing a section for people with disabilities is groundbreaking. It fulfills the wish
of many disabled philatelists across China and shows the care devoted to the disabled,” he says.
As for Li, he brought his own collection entitled Disability and Recovery, int
ending to raise awareness for the disabled and motivate them on their road to recovery.

led with a few of her friends to Japan in January. Despite living in Beijing, she bought return flight ticke
ts that departed from the nearby city Tianjin to Japan, and the return tickets cost less than 1,500 yuan in total.
“It’s a great deal as I can save more money for shopping in Japan. It’s convenient to take a high-speed train fr
om Beijing to Tianjin, which only took half an hour, and then I caught a taxi to go to Tianjin airport,” she said.
Last year, the per capita spending of college students on flights edged up 2.6 percent year-on-year, the study said witho
ut disclosing specific numbers, and indicated their high sensitivity on flight ticket prices. Despite that they try to save m

attract the young consumer group. In late May, Qunar teamed up with 33 domestic and foreign carriers, including Air China, Chi
na Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, United Airlines and All Nippon Airways, to l
aunch discounted prices for students on more than 3,000 routes, along with the concept of student flight tickets.
Students who have registered successfully with their identific
tion documents on the platform will be able to book cheaper tickets. For instance, a one-way
flight ticket from Guangzhou to Beijing can be as cheap as 460 yuan ($66.7), which is about half of the price tag – 8
62 yuan – for a second-class seat on a high-speed train. Qunar said such low-price flight tickets compared with high-spee
d trains may change the travel habits of college students and create user stickiness.
“Chinese culture is family-based. Everyone wants to have a group of people eating toget
her, so eating is more of a collective behavior. People either eat with family members at home or with colle
agues and clients at work,” said Cai Yani, who has directed a series of short videos about solo dining.
Eating together is considered crucial for family bonding. On a typical Chinese dining table, one rarely finds dishes for indi
viduals; instead, there is usually a range of dishes－meat, fish, vegetables and soup－for everyone to share.
Restaurants usually boast round tables with a rotatable surface, known as a “lazy Susan” in the West, to make sharing easier.
The move away from the traditional sharing approach is largely due to a demo
graphic shift in the country, especially a sharp rise in the number of unmarried people. Statistics from the Mi
nistry of Civil Affairs show that more than 200 million people were living on their own in 2017.
