Q: If you had to describe China in one sentence, what would it be?

We are preparing to leave China soon.  So, this question recently crossed my mind.  If I had to describe China to someone in one sentence, I would probably say, "Living in China is like living in an overcrowded, giant toilet bowl alongside a bunch of old people and young beautiful women."  No offense to China or its people, but that is EXACTLY what China is.  A big, dirty toilet bowl with a bunch of old people and young beautiful women.  Every day there's a pool party, but no one dares to enter the pool.  I tend to ignore Chinese men in their entirety, because they really just consume air and that's it.  They're just part of the filth.  So, how about you?  What sentence would you use to describe China?

China is a place where you can do what you want so long as you don't get caught. How's that?

Can I ask why you are leaving? Is it because you can't get any more L visas?

 

Or, given the statement I quoted, have you been offered a job at Fox news ? wink

I once met a Chinese man who was doing more than consuming air.  And I have met a thousand Chinese women who were doing the same, but in an entertaining manner.

One versus a thousand....  SAY NO MORE !

Not China but the Chinese: extreme opportunists who are extremely oblivious.

"Save yourself from hell.... aaaaaah!" *while falling into a seizure saying "wai guo ren", over and over again.

 

Just kidding, I would say this "China seems like a country that sold their soul for wealth and prosperity, I only hope one day they can get it back and their humanity."

A big, miserable, isolated dictatorship where people have to be childishly shallow to survive, and have no understanding of morality, fairness or rule of law.

I'd say: "China is a nation tragically, ironically, and comically seized by a bunch of rulers who think they and power are the best things in the world, a majority of "native" people who have been fed with this ideology for centuries either by coercion, deception, or force, and a minority of "foreigners", like you, who are ignorant enough just to see the bad side of a country which they so unwisely choose for work and/or marriage with a foreign mindset as wide as where they turn their eyes to and then return when they have enough, leaving nothing but more ignorance for weaker minds."  Sorry, no personal offense or nationalist complex.  I personally know of great men and women, both Chinese and wai guo ren, who have a much fuller view of the world, who are wise enough not to limit their minds to what they see and experience, but to enlighten others and encourage them to pursue what they hope to see.  To that I feel grateful and hopeful.

I see China as a peek into our future.  The world is going the way of China.  China just has a head start.

I preface by saying I can't generalize of all China so, because I've come to see that it really varies depending on location. A lot of the "bad" things I have heard about, I have not seen or experienced here (yet).

 

"Zibo (Shandong), a place where your expectations go unmet in the most humorous of ways, while you also get to encounter people with beautiful souls and big hearts!" Smile

 

I love it here!

I see China like a big circus, always entertaining. Everything is so different and I love that. Sure I've seen some stupid acts. I don't see it being a toilet bowl, far from it. I've seen many places far worse. I've seen a lot of beauty in China, I love Guilin. I've met some OK Chinese guys and I'm not open to meeting men unless they have a sense of humour. I have never seen so many beautiful women in one place, and what ever you can say about them, if I saw that same woman at home she wouldn't give me the time of the day, here they are friendly.

A:My friends who are managing schools still can't recruit from outside of China because of the borders being closed, as far as I know that doesn't look like it's going to change anytime soon. If you have a current existing residence permit etc you can re-enter the country, going through the usual quarantine process obviously but no new visas are being issued. I don't know about business visas but I suspect it wouldn't be much different. For up to date info you could probably contact the Chinese embassy in your country. -- Stiggs
