Who am I?

My name is Yi Liu, a postdoctoral life science researcher, living in Los Angeles, California. I graduated from Peking University (北京大学) with a Bachelor in Science in 2005; and from Case Western Reserve University with a PhD in Immunology in 2011. I spent two years’ spare time (luxury in graduate school) authorizing this blog. I love China and Chinese culture. I like to promote them. I wish I will have time to actively authorize this blog again!

Thank you for reading this blog!

About ChinaBlog.cc



I love blogging. I have been blogging on live space for 4 years (but it s**ks…). That’s my place to share life with my friends and family and it’s in Chinese.  Now I’d like to start a more formal English blog to gain some experience. And I choose to blog on “China Story” for the following reasons.


Culture Exchange:

In this new millennium, people around this small planet have never been living so close with each other.  Exchange and interaction of different types of culture have never been so intense and fascinating.  As a Chinese, I am particularly interested in the culture exchange between China and rest of the world, especially non-China-influenced part of world.  I would like to take this blog as a place to share the essence of Chinese culture with world, and interact with people around the globe, who has an open mind and like to know about Chinese culture.  I believe, culture exchange can help people know and understand each other better and lead to a peaceful world.



This might be a little bit too ambitious. I hope I can accumulate and keep posting on ChinaBlog.cc for a period of time, say, years. Then we can have a not so bad archive for China essentials.  Maybe I am too small and far from qualified on publishing, translating and expertise on both languages; but I will try; then maybe someone who is more qualified can get the idea and do a better job than me. “Use the little to get the big”, or in Chinese, “throw out a brick to attract a jade.”

    Love the site. I find the western culture lacking in its understanding of the east, I am glad sites like this exist to help promote understanding.

    Hello, Yi Liu! 你好吗?
    I am a Chinese-Indonesian and I love to study all about Chinese culture and their architecture. Do you have any recommended websites about Chinese architecture and every detail of their roofing? I need it to accomplish my task.
    Thanks for this blog so that I can get typologies of Chinese Houses which I rarely seen on Indonesia.
    I am pleased if you send your recommendations to my e-mail ([email protected]).

    Best regard,

    Christian Hanover
