Right, because saying that Chinese sounds goofy is totally not a racist comment. 1.5 billion people speak it and don't find it goofy.

Fantastic video.
You mean Mandarin. There's no spoken language "Chinese", only written language.

Nice tower BTW.

Language is not a race. Calling a language goofy is not racist. Are you daft?

I like the claddings at the mec floor very much. It looks perfect with the rest of the claddings.

Is there a need to make such a comment? Why not keep it to 'Fantastic video'?

Unaccented Mandarin is a soft yet lyrical language, with alot of shhrhs sounds (not to be confused with Cantonese). My mother teaches Mandarin and her students always remark how beautiful it sounds, in contrast to their expectations.

*Edit*As with all languages it depends on the voice of the speaker - the TV presenters always accentuate inflection, which makes it sound comical to outsiders, whilst female presenters have a piercing voice - to Chinese in a good sense of the word, to others, not. Day to day spoken Mandarin is alot nicer:

The TV narrator is accenting each word to make it more clear and easier to understand, just like in other languages... Cantonese sounds clear to me, though I can't understand it, Japanese is like a never-ending flow of similar sounding tones that are hard to understand, and Korean is somewhere in the middle. Just my opinion, don't bash me for it

Among all the dialects of china, I thought Mandarin sound beautiful. But that is just my opinion. However, cantonese can be very funny if you understand the meaning, and local slang.
Anyway, enought with speaking languages. Let get back to the topic.
Are they not to build another twin like the west tower? I heard it's going to build something taller that has similar structure. Any pic?

well don't expect to see the east tower finished till 2016 . There initial target was to have both towers by the 2010 asian games and also finish up the guangzhou tv tower before the asian games which they have done .

i like the softer shanghai and taiwan accent speaking mandarin better, i dont like those cctv host's accent either..

mandarin is a chinese culture, so it would definitely be considered racism calling mandarin goofy,

very awesome cladding~!

check out the white streaks from the top of the cladding down to the top mech floor..it looks like dust, or maybe even a paint spill because they're using white paint on the braces..it's very noticeable in person..

It's not the "final" cladding I think. Remember that SWFC's cladding didn't look very nice at first till they uncovered it once the facade works were finished.
