Will you bee my wife

Li Wenhua and Yan Hongxia may think they are the bees knees in their new clothes made of thousands of living bees - but as fashion trends go it's unlikely to catch on.

The couple who are both enthusiastic beekeepers and work for the Nanhu forestry commission at Ning'an city in northern China decided to get married wearing clothes made of living bees.

And despite the fact that most of their pals kept their distance the couple were still delighted with their new clothes.

Husband Li said: "I have been working with bees for two decades and it was the obvious choice for us for our big day. I also wanted to set a world record for the biggest coat of bees - I put a queen bee on each of us but the only thing is it was impossible to count how many bees we had - I don't know if a guess is enough?"

His wife added: "It was an amazing feeling to have a carpet of living bees moving over my body. I could feel them as they moved around - it was amazing. I have always loved bees but this was a totally new experience."

How the Chinese view The solar eclipse

The solar eclipse that will take place on Wednesday, July 22, 2009 will be a total eclipse of the Sun. It will be the longest total solar eclipse of the 21st century, lasting at most 6 minutes, 39 seconds. It has sparked tourist interest in eastern China and India. The eclipse is part of series 136 in the Saros cycle, like the record setting Solar eclipse of July 11, 1991. The exceptional duration is a result of the moon being near perigee, with the diameter of the moon 8% larger than the sun (magnitude 1.080). This is second in the series of three eclipses in a month. There was a lunar eclipse on July 7 and now a solar eclipse on July 22 and then a lunar eclipse on August 6.

Jubilant eclipse watchers in China set off fireworks near the banks of the Qiantang River in coastal Zheijiang province as skies darkened overhead for about six minutes. Visitors from countries including Britain, Germany and Australia joined curious Chinese onlookers. Heavy clouds blocked the full eclipse but watchers saw a partial one.

The river bank in Yanguan village drew an exceptional number of watchers because it was also the site of the world’s largest tidal bore, a phenomenon triggered by the eclipse where a giant tidal wave runs against the river’s currents.

Total eclipses are caused when the moon moves directly between the sun and the earth, covering it completely to cast a shadow on earth.

White tits scare off other birds

A peanut farmer claims to have discovered the perfect way to keep birds off his plants - by flashing them with a pair of large white breasts.

Farmer Wing Fu said: "I had tried everything else. If I fired a gun in the air they were always back minutes later - then I used the scarecrow but they weren't worried and just sat on the scarecrow's head to survey which peanuts they were going to eat."

He said he had come up with the idea to use the breasts after travelling into town at Wuhan in eastern China's Hubei province and spotting an old clothes mannequin that had been dumped beside the road.

He said: "It had no head and no arms but it was bright white and I thought to myself why not give it a try."

He added that ever since the pair of large white breasts had been stationed in his field he had few problems with the birds and has now ordered another dozen white mannequins with extra large breasts to be stationed on the other peanut fields.

Fu said: "Other farmers have already asked me about boring them and I even go into the scarecrow press business."

Hotels in China offer "swimming companions"

AS THE summer holidays approach, hotels in China have come up with novel ways to entice travellers to stay with them.

Some of the hotels now offer "swimming companions" to guests who choose to stay with them, according to Chinese evening daily Lianhe Wanbao.

Speaking for a self-proclaimed five-star hotel in the Yubei district, a Ms Bai admitted they wanted to attract male guests with the promotion, Wanbao reported.

A job advertisement revealed that the hotel is looking to hire girls with good looks.

According to the advertisement, they're only required to lounge in the swimming pool from 8pm to 10pm. The hotel will also pay the girls "appearance fees" ranging from RMB 80-100 (S$16.90-$21.90).

Ms Bai added that the girls are not required to swim with other guests in the pool. Ms Bai also clarified that she works for an advertising firm that's currently contracted to the hotel.

The lady said, "The job description is definitely true. If you have looks, you can report directly to the hotel for work."

A job advertisement for another hotel stated that its clientele is made up of white-collar males who would "appreciate looking at beautiful girls while swimming".

A manager in one of the Chongqing hotels said, "Such promotions are meant to increase the number of guests."

"Usually they're used to promote hotels which have just opened."

At one of the hotels in the district of Hubei, an applicant said that she decided to apply for the job because it sounded relaxing.

She said, "Besides I like swimming and I can earn money while I enjoy myself."

She added, "But I am still worried for my own safety."
