Winter is almost over. In GZ it is definitely over. Did you find a coat?

I had a suit made here (not Beijing) and am really happy with it.

 

I had a Chinese friend go online and baidu suit makers in the city. It turns out there are streets of them if you know where to go but of course most people wouldn't.

Their websites had customer reviews, directions etc. and from there it was easy.

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
