Q: Chinese cooking or international ?

While i do like Chinese cooking, i  do by far prefer most other international cooking styles, particulary french. 

So for lunch i generally eat out, so chinese, but for dinner almost everytime i cook something "western" as they call it, but i can range from curry, to fajitas or ratatouille.

However i know of seveal people who go exclusivly for Chinese food, like my roommate. What about you guys ? Am i weid for wanting to eat international so much ? ( yes i'm french food is an important topic for me

Nothing weird about that.

 

I'm the same. I eat a lot of Chinese food in restaurants etc, but when I'm at home I cook for myself and it's almost never Chinese food.

I also wish there were only 2 types of food, Chinese and Foreign. Simplification to its best. Same for people, cultures and languages.

TBH, I rarely eat real Chinese food. I often have jiaozi with rice for breakfast - but that's when I don't have bacon (and now that my local supermarket only carries Smithfields - which is REALLY crap bacon... there goes that!)

 

Most of the time I cook at home - western style (ie, usually fried chunk of meat and steamed veggies). Sometimes I cook Italian or Thai. Going out, I usually have non-Chinese.

 

It sort of makes it like Chinese is a bit of a treat, like it was back home...(too bad they don't do the fried rice too well :( )

Mexican for me!  'course I lived a long time as a kid down by ol' Mexico (Stateside, but near),,, part of growing up was Mezcan cooking!    but here in remote china no chance of that,,, I used to buy taco shells online and tortillas too,,, then cook here in apt,, but trouble and expensive...

 

so,, probably 90% of the time chinese 4 me.  why don't they have those things we used to get with chinese delivery in the States...   I think they were called 'Spring Rolls' or something like that,, I really liked those.  yeah, simple home delivery chinese fried rice was better Stateside than I have had here!  go figure...

never much for french though,, except a quiche can be nice, and u guys do make some awesome bread!  I still remember baguette with jambon et fromage walking around the streets of Paris.  a damn good sandwich back in the day...

I mostly just don't eat.   Once every three/four days is enough to keep me alive.

A:I'd say no, you don't need working permit to work for Chinese Co. remotely, i.e. by not residing in China.Best advice on that you'll get from your employer. https://www.china-briefing.com/news/china-foreigners-work-permit-application-and-renewal-recent-changes/ See this part: However, because a valid resident permit is one of the primary requirements for the renewal of a work permit, without a valid residence permit, expatriates stranded outside China may not be able to renew their work permits anymore. ... or in other words, if you don't reside in China, work permit is also not required. Some more details about Work visa requirements .. https://www.hongdaservice.com/blog/china-work-visa-requirements-what-you-may-not-know -- icnif77
