Q: So... what should Santa bring you?

What are you asking Santa for this year? 

 

Santa doesn't visit me in China so I have to buy my own presents. What a jerk! 

 

I will probably be buying myself a new computer as the dust from China is slowly destroying my motherboard. I don't think I can get a good one locally as the computer shops around here aren't too high end. 

 

So what's on your Christmas list this year? Do you normally shop locally or buy stuff for Christmas online?

I applied for an English teaching job at the private School in Austria few weeks ago, and then I look at the School's web link (last week).

 

School accepted my filled lengthy (25 Qs) questionnaire, and set an appointment for the telephone interview.

 

If I would look at the School's web link first, I would never apply for the teaching job as 'not qualified as Non-native'.

 

I guess, Santa is next  in line.

A Porsche Panamera or 991. Not sure. Either will do as long as it's not white. White cars are always dirty. Can't keep them clean. 

A hot rod desk top with a huge hard drive for two or three OSs. 

Another bike or motorcycle or two or three. 

Tools, more tools. You can never have enough tools.

My wife thinks I'm a tool.  Or rather, that I dress like a tool.  So last night she went out to buy me some clothes for Xmas.  Came home with a couple of pairs of trousers and a shirt.

After cajoling me into trying them on she went out again to have the trousers altered.

Very cold here, and going out takes quite some effort.  She's so lovely.

Anyhow, I told her I don't want or expect any Xmas presents so let's consider the clothes to be very early birthday presents.

So, for Xmas...nothing.

 

But....just maybe.....like the last couple of years....my daughters back in Aust will send me a lucky box.......Hehehehehehe.......

A new life in a different country, but I'll probably need to make that happen myself.

 

OK Santa, I'll settle for enough beer to keep me numb for a few weeks.

A D-visa so I don't have to renew my work permit/resident permit every year! 

 

As I don't believe in Santa I also know this won't happen!

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
