Q: Can anyone recommend any good cobblers in Beijing?

I've got at least half a dozen shoes with broken heels, souls and holes in them. I've brought them to my local cobbler before but they broke again after a day. I'm willing to spend a bit extra to ensure they're fixed properly. It'll still be cheaper than buying new shoes.

Well, in Beijing, you know there are two major outlet stores, the silk market and one that's near BFE. They have shoe repair in the shoe departments, they are good, I've had alot of work done by them. On the flip side, try buying shoes on Taobao, or go to Beijing South, and take the North exit walk out and go straight across the street. You will see a lrge shoe outlet center. If you know how to bargain, you can walk out with 6 pairs of high heels that are ok quality for around 100 rmb.
Then who needs shoes fixed, just be a fashionable Lolitta.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
