I Wish They All Could Be Chongqing Xiaojies

To paraphrase, of course, the chorus of the famous Beach Boys tune. I have read, shall we say, with interest, that the city government has declared their women the city's top tourist attraction. Apparently the Sichuan babes from Chongqing (yes that's Chungking for you Nationalists and HK Indian food-lovers) trumped the city's other major export - oops, I mean attraction, Sichuan hotpot.

I mean, I have heard from everyone that's been there that the city is an ugly place, but I do find it strange that the city government would declare open season on its own women for legions of domestic tourists, many with a penchant for whoring. Allow me to quote in closing for the city's explanation of why their women are the hottest:

The city's climate and migrant background have made it a place famous for beautiful women, the paper said. High humidity and cloudy skies are good for their skin, while the bumpy roads and spicy food help to shape their slim figures, it said.

And just the other day I linked to dating Chongqing style. What is it about that place?

Maybe the theory is the same as those 1950's-era fat jigglers with the vibrating belt?

Well, the girls there are know as "Chongqing Ghosts" and those aren't always clouds in the sky.

We'll be visiting in five weeks; it would appear I have much to look forward too...

There is a famous theory about CQ beauties.

CQ was the temporaty capital in the "anti-japanese war" 1937-45. KMT bureacrats and rich businessmen brought their mistresses from all over China to CQ.
When the war ended, these mistresses each got 8 more years in age, and most were conveniently left behind. They stayed and passed their beauty genes there.

Indeed, we will note the reports of your visit with interest, Lord Curzon! As Simon alludes, with his previous post, it does seem an extraordinary place. Unfortunately, the shortage of women vis-a-vis men does not seem to have improved the lot of women in the short-term...

Now Sun Bin, that theory to me is more plausible than bumpy roads! I hadn't thought of that angle. But then on the other hand, there must have either been a LOT of mistresses to affect the aggregate gene pool to such an extent in just 3 generations, or the mistresses and their KMT paramours were EXTREMELY prolific...

Forget cosmetics. Let's start marketing Sichuan hotpot at Harvey Nichols and Lane Crawford!

And Hunter, I like the fat jigglers concept - sadly though, that is not just a 1950s phenomenon and is still with us today, judging from all the ads on the Hong Kong bus system...

Not long ago, in Beihai Park, in Beijing, my friends and I were corralled by two incredibly cute little Chinese girls, say 9 or 10 years old. They were actually little human advertisements for Sichuan. They had memorized a two-minute, rhyming English soliloquy about Sichuan. I don't remember much of it, swooning as I was with a systemic cuteness shock, but I do remember the line..."and the girls are hot! Just like our Chengdu hot pot!"

From the mouths of babes...

And they are vixens in bed. Oh how I miss Xiao Lu.
