Q: What's a good furniture outlet besides IKEA?

IKEA is the best place to buy furniture in China. Agreed. Is there another shop or brand or area you'd recommend?

 

I went to an area that sells second hand furniture in the west end. Not recommended.

we have some stuff from taobao that turned out pretty decent. we have also bought some furniture from the city's "Furniture district". This is pretty basic, laminated wood, not something worth moving on to the next apartment. 

According to my taste most furniture stores in China only have "Ugly Expensive" stuff. I like simple. 

There is actually a second hand place here in town that sells some stuff that is pretty decent. But the things that are in good shape is also pretty much same price as the new stuff. The concept of second hand doesn't work well in China.

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 an employment with such an employer, IMO 'cause you'll experience similar troubles by employer won't respect the contract later on. -- icnif77
