    Apart from the odd/possibly funny name..I noticed that this location that my iPhone is at, is an island turned into an airport. Not to get off topic, but we will always be behind them until we can level some states and do this kind of s***!

    It's not an odd name if you actually say it in Chinese.

    It is not so much an island turned into an airport, but rather a man-made island constructed specifically as an airport.

    The island was not constructed...But I get your point..They did level it and merge it with a smaller island (according to wiki) if thats what you were referring to.

    I think we'll always be behind "them" as long as people poke fun of names of cities that are probably quite common to locals. /shrug
