China Daily reports this week that naked wedding photographs are becoming popular among some young couples in Beijing and other cities. Young people are more open-minded than in previous generations, one photography studio staff member explained.


Here’s how one Chinese man decided to avoid sky-high apartment prices in Beijing. Dai Haifei told China Daily this week he built an egg-shaped home for just 6,400 yuan. That’s about $961. It is 6 square meters in size, and is made of bamboo and bags filled with sawdust and grass seeds. What a great idea, unless someone decides to build a high-rise egg-partment complex.

Dancing bananas

Do you want your bananas to taste sweeter? News reports this week say a Japanese fruit company has been playing classical music to its bananas to make them taste sweeter. In fact, they like classical music by Mozart the best, says a worker at the Toyoka Chuo Seika fruit company. But in China, I’m told that bananas like hip-hop music the best.

Worst case scenario: The holiday edition

It’s also a time when you can find yourself in big trouble at overcrowded stores or stuck with a bad boss at the holiday office party. The Week presents Worst Case Scenario: The Holiday Edition.
