    Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding.

     

    Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is...

    well,,,  just hope all newbies in China wake up real quick to the idea of there are not really any 'road rules',,,  so, like the little Safety Films we watched in Elementary School said when u were a kid,,,  'look both ways before u cross the street'.  dat sh*t be true here,, haha,, and don't be too surprised when u see a car driving down the sidewalk,,,  cuz long enuf...

    Firstly you need to ask yourself these questions:

    Am I ethically obligated to honour a contract I signed?

    Can I ignore my legal and ethical obligations if someone offers me 5 mao more per month?

    Am I prepared for the consequences?

    I seem to be able to deal with the face issue quite well. Most of the students who laugh are the ones who don't know the answer themselves. So when I ask a student a question I will turn my attention to the person who starts laughing. I will patiently ask that person the answer knowing full well that he doesn't know. Yes I said he. I have yet to run into a girl who starts to laugh. The person...

    MIL?  Mother In Law?  Ok,,,   I prefer the term MBL.  Mother By the dictates of Law.

     

    This gender preference needs to come to an end.  Female need Male.  Male need Female.

    I agree that parental involvement helps kids focus their intelligence to realize their potential and in that sense I'm sure the theory is correct  but I'm not sure that I.Q tests are an accurate measure of real intelligence.

     

    I think intelligence is something you have or you don't. You can't learn to be intelligent. If you spend enough time at it and are pushed in the...

    Scots, this questions hits at exactly what this site is for and you're a mentally defective dick.

     

    Your best option is to get in on the Expat  Wechat group in your city. You could also ask your Chinese friends especially students. Lastly, many 5 star hotels have professional bakers on staff, check Ctrip to find local 5 star hotels and take a day trip visiting them...

    Because no Japanese were massacred and the only bona fide martial art is kung fu. The movie also lacked the necessary nationalistic and patriotic themes that appeal to Chinese audiences. And of course, how can the hero who saves the known universe be white? He must be humble, heroic, overcome adversity, unable to be with the woman he loves, a good student who respects filial piety, self...

    lol, I didn't mean restriction of posts to China only but I just see the band-wagon of Fox like hawks jumping onto anything that matters to them and close their eyes to anything that doesn't fit the narrative. Just like Hannity or Conway/Methway, lmfao.

    I had a mild heart attack last month. As a result, I had to have a stent put into one of my arteries. Besides having to wait 10 days to get a CT scan (I am not sure why), everything else was above par with treatment and procedure. Cost was stupidly inexpensive compared to the USA. I trusted my life to the doctors and nurses of a tier 3 city and had a successful experience. I will say that...

    Thanks, I went through hell getting my kids into school it wasn't easy

  • Mar 28,2018

    Most likely, School doesn't want to let you go, i.e. terminate the Contract. 

     

    Reasons, why did you terminate the Contract are utmost important!

     

    If School doesn't agree with your Termination or your termination is without School's Contract violation, you might be required to exit China with short packing time.

    Once, foreigner in China...

    Hey Justin, welcome aboard and good on you for responding after you posted your question.

    Have you been hanging out at expat bars to get your "facts"?

    A lot of what you have been told is bollocks. I bought a house just like a local. I am the sole owner and i walk down the street holding hand with my wife everyday....nothing happens. I'm not running from anything and I'm certainly...

    You're mixing up a network outright making stories up or at the very least not taking the basic step of fact checking with a news network reporting on a story where the victim/ witnesses happen to be lying.

    Can work, but the office gossip can make some big troubles.

  • Mar 12,2018

    It depends on the individuals involved. A lot of Chinese men do not want wealthier, more educated or more successful women than themselves. You cannot seem to maintain good relationships with family, friends, co-workers or your boss so I think if you are talking about yourself I should say absolutely no hope at all.

    Hell, why not source the product yourself then set up your own shop/s selling the stuff? Start small and if it sells then expand from there. You might find the companies taking notice of you if you're already selling their products too.

     

  • Mar 12,2018

    This is not something I know much about, and I bet the companies involved have their marketing people who do know a lot about it but I think your best bet would be to go to them with your business plan showing how you can get them access to X number of customers, their demographics - income etc and if it looks appealing to them, and they believe you maybe they'd give you a chance.

  • Mar 08,2018

    So, unfortunately ... you are talking out of your buTT!

     

    School cannot cancel Contract or Z visa without valid cause!

     

    Why?

     

    Only Contract signed by both parties (sponsoring Co.& foreign employee) entitles School to apply for WP and other docs. required at application for Z visa.

     

    After Contract is signed by...

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
