    In original post, Song Binbin is written once as Song Bingbing.

      I think that there is lots of variation in transliterating Chinese words and names from that era -- Mao Tse Tung became Mao Zedong, Chou En Lai became Zhou Enlai, Peking became Beijing, and Amoy became Xiamen.

      I think her name has been rendered Song Binbin, Soon Binbin, Song Bingbing, etc.

      Lots of those changes and errors have crept into my writing.
