Word of the Day: Chao Zuo

Today my colleagues and I were talking about celebrities or people who do publicity stunts to get noticed.

And the Chinese word is chao (3) zuo (4). Chao means to "stir-fry" while zuo means "to do".

It makes sense. A publicity stunt really is creating something quickly, and the hotter the better.
