Q: What is a good gift to buy a Chinese Mother-In-Law?

She's 86 years old and very traditional I believe...except for accepting me as one of her son-in-laws. She does not live in a major city in China and i dont want to offend her, and I would ask my wife...but i want to take other initiative this year to also surprise my wife.

What sort of things does she do daily? I know she cooks...get her some cutlery or some pots and pans she will use those everyday and that can remind her of you, but just make sure you get the good quality type.

My first thought was to suggest a basket of fruits, but then I thought there is a possibility some of the fruits may not be to her liking.  Then I came up with what I think will earn you a few points, a "red envelope".  You can buy one for around 1 Rmb, go to bank and get some new bills, and place them inside.  Then give it to her, telling her that it  is to buy something she always wanted but never could have, and it is your way of thanking her for raising such a wonderful daughter, your wife.

Good luck, partner, hope it does work.

My mother in law is 60. She has a computer online but couldn't send e-mail or shop taobao because she doesn't know how to type pinyin. A character recognizing USB writing pad fixed that.

A: I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also us
A:I mainly got new (English teaching) jobs in China from here. I also used several good job recruiters and I got new offers that way, too.The other (ET) jobs website is Dave's ESL Cafe, and if you'll Yahoo-gle "ESL job vacancies in China", you'll find more websites advertising ET job openings in China. You can replace 'ESL' with any job you're looking for ... Many reasons why no replies from job advertisers ... Chinese borders remain closed as one. Nobody will hire you, if you can't enter China. The other thing here is (was from 2009 - 2017), never stop sending your CV until you get an interview invitation ... In my time, I usually spoke to at least two schools in the same time and then I picked and signed the best contract .. Good luck! -- icnif77
