I was surprised in other parts of Asia, how common a practice it is to engage 'race girl' PR staff for the most civic of events.

For an open source promotion we had in Thailand I interviewed several stunning PR girls [tough job but someone has to do it].. Fortunately among these air hostesses and models to be were some students with genuine interests beyond makeup and fame.

The impeccably dressed PR beauties we chose, did a fantastic job of translating the message of free software 'as in beer and freedom'. We gave demos and handed out 12 thousand promo folders with Gimp and Blender on CD over 4 days. Exhausting but fun.

Not in China. You are not getting a lap-dance in public from a Chinese woman.
