  1. One of my Chinese friends told me about something called a Tangzhuang once. It’s a traditional Chinese suit for men.

  2. I know this brand! It’s call 创世 in Mandarin Chinese, but I don’t know what the name means.

  3. In Mandarin Chinese, “创世 Chuàngshì” means “to create the world.” “Trands” is a transliteration.

  4. Charise Nothem

    Great info and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you guys have any thoughts on where to hire some professional writers? Thank you 🙂
