Q: How's your water in the big containers?

Recently a report said that there was dodgey water in Beijing. Worms and funny things grow in it, An expert suggested to use it within 3 days. I have never had a problem here with water and alien creatures in it. I stock up over the summer break, so how is your water?

i read some bug eggs were found in the cap of a nongfu spring water bottle, maybe on this site?

I think all water has some risk but it think its small( a tiny percentage will ever experience it)...Ive never had a problem with the big water dispenser bottles or from any or the small bottles...

BOIL, BOIL, BOIL! My school provides me with the large bottles of water and a dispenser. Frankly, I use the large bottled water only for washing dishes. I boil my drinking water.

Well I heard that story about the bottled water but how would you ever know? If the water is off a little you are going to suffer a short bout of diarrhea. I use tap water to wash dishes and boil eggs and bottled water for cooking food in like pasta or dumplings. Certainly boil water for coffee!!
The small bottles of water you need to be careful of keeping for more than a few days. take off the lid and have a sniff. Slightly off? Toss it.

A:What is 'formal offer letter'? Only legally accepted employment offer I know is a Contract! ... so, you just don't accept and sign the contract with the lower salary! Email exchanges, verbal discussions and other promises between you and employer aren't legally binding, so legal action isn't recommended. Mainly legal effective thingy is employer's stamped and signed contract! ... and after you ink it, employer can/will use your signed contract to apply for all necessary documents at Chinese governmental agencies as Working permit and all ... It would be better for you to not accept employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer not respecting the contract later on. -- icnif77
