Q: Have you left China during COVID?

I went to Shanghai these days, shockingly I can rarely see an expat there now. Shanghai does not look like Shanghai anymore, many bars are empty without foreign customers. I do not know how long they can survive?

How many of you have left China?

I haven't seen any statistics around this but I've heard of people who were traveling when the covid hit China, it was around Chinese New Year - the place shut down and they were unable to return - I'd imagine there were quite a few in that situation.

 

A lot of others with no real commitments in China probably left when it started getting scary and have since not being able, or not wanted to return.

 

The people who stayed... my guess would be a lot of them are married, have a family there and so maybe don't hang around in the bars as much as other expats might so you probably wouldn't see them around.

Maybe you just got WOKE and no longer judge people by the colour of their skin. You should start a movement. FLM could work.

The correct and only answer to Viki's question is 23.

 

Now, let's draw some wide sweeping conclusions from that datum point.

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
