I'm listening to some audio thriller at the moment.

My family and my car.
What kind of "green" lifestyle do you have?
I start using the air conditioning a bit later and switch off all electronic devices I'm not using.
What's the best way to break the ice with a Chinese businessman you've met for the first time?
