<StanXhiao> At the beginning of Republic of China, the man costume mainly adopted the mandarin jacket and long gown. Following the western wind gradually moving to the east, the men in Shanghai especially the staffs of many foreign companies firstly put on the western costume but not rejected the traditional costume, the mandarin jacket, long gown and western costume appeared concurrently.

<StanXhiao> After the reform and opening, the national economy has developed rapidly, people's dress and make-up gradually become exquisite. The men and women's costume develops towards personalization and fashionableness, and gradually connects the rain with international metropolis.
<agent_orange> "Chop-fuckin' sticks, pal? Speekee Engrish?"

Remove the feet, make a cut in right side to remove the intestines, windpipes, support its breast up with sorghum stalk, remove the wing ends, remove the rectum from anus, clean it with water.
