Q: Do you know of a place to buy Bisquick in Guangzhou ?

I have searched many large supermarkets foreign products section, and a few more jsut selling foreign items at outrageous prices, and have not been able to locate one yet that will carry a 5 pounds box of Bisquick.  I do use it a lot to make muffins for breakfast, and pancakes too.
Please do not tell me to Google it, I have done it already with no satisfactory results.
And I do need a store name, address and phone number, so I can check if carried so I do not waste time and money going there if they do not have it.
This is a very specific question, please refrain from answering if you do not have the information requested.  I will be in Guangzhou next week, and would love to get a few boxes of Bisquick.  Many thanks.

Hi Happy,

  I am afraid to tell you that I don't think you will be able to find that in Guangzhou, or any part of China.  The best thing you can do is have someone in the US send you a care package containing that and other items.

  The cost, including the shipping, would probably be much less than anything you might be able to find here.

  But, when you are in Guangzhou, be sure to stop by my favorite watering hole in Zhujiang New City.  It is called McCaulley's (I think that is how it is spelled).  In any case, they have some of the best western food I have had since coming to China.

Hi Xpat, I was also afraid of that, since one local foreign market (owner has no brains) quit bringing it in even if they sold out within 2 or 3 days each time.  They charged 60 Rmb for the 5 pound box, and in USA is between 3 and 4.  And since US Postal Services stopped parcel post boxes to China, a meaninful box will be close to 100 pounds and cost upwards of $ 150 USD with no sure delivery.  To further the insult, they will not register any deliveries to China, nor will insurance will cover if lost in China, only in USA.
I can make the mix like Bisquick at home, my only problem comes when it is time to add or mix the shortening.  Sometimes do not find lard, sometimes I can not get an even distribution.
Well, I have been depending on charitable friends that will bring me a box at my request, but many when come have full weight allowance on their suitcases with presents.  Patience !

Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in releva
A:In my personal experience, teaching certificates have varied in relevance depending on the context and location. Here's a breakdown of each aspect:a) Getting the teaching job: Teaching certificates can certainly enhance your chances of securing a teaching position, especially in formal educational settings such as schools and language institutions. Many employers prefer candidates who have undergone specific training in pedagogy and instructional techniques, which these certificates often provide. However, other factors such as experience, references, and the demand for teachers in a particular area also play significant roles in the hiring process.b) Getting a higher salary than your uncertified competitors: In some cases, holding a teaching certificate can indeed lead to a higher salary compared to uncertified competitors. Many educational institutions have structured salary scales that take into account factors such as level of education, years of experience, and additional certifications. Holding a teaching certificate may place you in a higher salary bracket or make you eligible for certain salary incentives or bonuses. However, this can vary widely depending on the specific policies of the institution or organization.c) Getting promotions: Teaching certificates can be beneficial for career advancement and securing promotions within the field of education. They demonstrate a commitment to professional development and mastery of teaching skills, which are qualities that many employers value when considering candidates for leadership positions or administrative roles. Additionally, some promotions may require specific certifications or qualifications, making holding a teaching certificate essential for advancement in certain cases.Regarding which certificate yields better results, it largely depends on the specific requirements of the job market and the educational context in which you intend to work. For example:A Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is often highly regarded in formal school settings and can be advantageous for those seeking positions in primary or secondary education.Montessori certification is valuable for individuals interested in working in Montessori schools or implementing Montessori principles in their teaching approach.A Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) certificate is particularly relevant for those seeking to teach English to non-native speakers in international contexts or language schools.Ultimately, the best certificate for you will depend on your career goals, the specific requirements of the positions you're interested in, and the preferences of potential employers in your target job market. It's essential to research the requirements and preferences of employers in your desired field and tailor your qualifications accordingly. -- ruqaiya761
