Mu Zi Mei got the can

She got fired! That's according to Annabel Li, who is in the loop on the Guangzhou scene.

Mu Zi Mei's day job was as a sex columnist for City Pictorial, pictured below. Her column did not appear in the November issue, although her name (her real name - Li Li) was still in the masthead. For more on Mu Zi Mei, click on the Mu Zi Mei category to the left. Below is the cover of November's City Pictorial.

The cover image is from a story about entrants in the Miss China beauty pageant. The large cover line 'Global Volunteer' refers to a feature story about volunteers for the NGO Habitat for Humanity building houses in the Republic of Mongolia. The feature also contains a list and contact details for several Chinese and international NGOs, including Oxfam, Greenpeace, the Peace Corps, WWF and China's first NGO Friends of Nature, which was established in 1994.

City Pictorial is published by the ubiquitous Nanfang Group.
