Life is about wasting your life anyway...

I met my wife, started what seems to be a good career that allow to feed my family while being both in China and back home, doing what I enjoy to do. It could have been much worse.

I would rather you tell us why you feel you are wasting your time here in China, but then you must be Chinese based on your Chinglish question. 

 

And No.

No, I make big bucks with my own business and also have a high paying job that I like. I have a lovely and very beautiful Chinese girlfriend (yes even by Chinese standards), dedicated to our couple, not greedy, not superficial (she studied in the UK long enough to learn about the substance of things and open her eyes about how superficial most people are in China), a great cook (and not only Chinese food), she doesn't have all these disrespectful habits that most people in China have (talking about you right in your face, yelling instead of talking, chewing with open mouth and overall being peasants).

 

You see, I am not wasting my time here, oh and we plan to get married, and also plan to buy a house cash in some Pacific island paradise in a few years, maybe Vanuatu or French Polynesia, only for holidays, stay in China for the big money.

Oh, definitely.  I'm definitely wasting my time in China.  But if not China, where?

I'm the type of bloke who excels in time wasting.  Now.  Not before.  But now, I'm into time wasting.  Why not?  Time is to be spent.  How do you spend your time?

I agree with royceH.  To a certain degree, most people are "Wasting their life" somewhere, somehow, in some way.  At the moment, I'm "spending" my life in China.  This time last year, I was spending it in New Zealand.  30 years before that, I was spending it in Ecuador.  So, do I think my life is being any more or less wastefully spent here than in NZ?  No, actually - about the same: both countries offer similar opportunities to live a fruitless, pointless existence - ha ha.  Conversely, both countries also offer plenty of opportunities to make one's life count and be significant.  On balance, I don't think I'm any further ahead or behind here in China in the "search for significance" sweepstakes: in some ways, my job of teaching here is more significant than selling computers in NZ, in other ways it's more pointless and unfruitful.  Relationship-wise, my fiancee provides a much better avenue for personal growth than my ex-wife.  So for me, it's really "swings and roundabouts".

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
