Four Japanese girls set out to redefine the meaning of ‘cute’ via music and thus formed Chai. Fusing sonic elements, their sound is influenced by Basement Jaxx, Gorillaz, CSS and Tom Tom Club, while lyrics focus on self-empowerment. In the island nation, the four-piece band have won a devoted following with their unique music videos.

Tue, Jan 8: Trivia at Ginstar
Every Tuesday evening, Ginstar’s Zhujiang New Town location holds its weekly pub quiz from 8.30-10pm. The trivia covers a wide range of topics and subjects, from current events and pop culture to geography, literature and politics. (Photo, music and connection rounds also feature!).
Participating teams stand the chance to win a number of boozy prizes, including a bottle of Fireball, 3 liters of Carlsberg and a bottle of wine! And, as an added bonus, trivia attendees can also enjoy one of Ginstar’s renowned burgers and a pint of beer for only RMB60!

This Wednesday, your favorite local basketball team, Guangzhou Long-Lions (16-13), will face off against the Jiangsu Dragons (13-16) at Tianhe Gymnasium. This week’s sporting event marks the Long-Lions’ first Guangzhou home game in about a month. The team played in Foshan throughout December at the newly finished Foshan International Sports and Cultural Center. Wednesday’s game is sure to be electric, as the Long-Lions are angling for a late-season push to improve their seeding in the 2019 CBA playoffs. Meanwhile, Jiangsu has struggled on the road, with an underwhelming 4-10 record away. Tickets can be purchased online or at the gymnasium.
