 Why you want to buy a parrot? Just imagine yourself in the place of parrot..you dont have any right..Parrots are creature of God..you cannot put them behind bars..Let them free like you are..

Createach:

  Actually I agree with Volta, caged birds are a common site in China and it's a pretty shitty thing as far as i'm concerned.

Okay. People aren't taking your post seriously. Sorry about that. It's getting towards the weekend, and people here are always a little punchy after Wednesday.

 

The obviously person to buy a parrot from would be a pirate. Being in HZ (which I assume is Huangzhou?), you can make a short run to the coast and head to the docks, where a ship flying the Jolly Roger can assist you.

 

Short of that, as Createach mentioned, a pet store might have one. But a pirate would be cheaper.

mArtiAn:

  Yeh, i'm not sure the Jolly Roger is the way to go, sorry to disagree with you on this point G, but tracking down a pirate is not as easy as it used to be, not as easy at all. And of course, a pretty large percentage of pirate's parrot's, peacocks, pigeons and certain poultry are specifically purchased round southern parts of the Pacific. You'll have to keep a close eye on him or he might get homesick and piss off.

 I think if a parrot is really what you wish for and what you really wish for is a parrot, your wisest bet would be to close your eyes and do just that. Make a WISH! Because if your heart is pure and you 'dare' to BELIEVE, miracles 'DO' come true! And hey, if you do it inside a pet store, well.........you're gonna 'double' your chances.

Well, I had forgotten about the wish, but it would have saved me all kinds of grief! Personally, I got my parrot at the pet store. However, I  had to take it back. Darned thing was dead. When I mentioned in the store that the bird was hanging upside down from the perch, the salesman told me it was sleeping. Come to find out, he had nailed the feet to the perch. Talk about cheeky!!

A:A few years ago, Filipno teachers were beginning to find acceptance in training schools. I think there were special requirements for them to legally get to teach in China. I know that many Filipino teachers found their way into training schools in the southern regions of China.  I do not think they get the same salary as a typical foreigner teacher from a western nation. The benefits are not as numerous too. They are asked to work longer hours. Basically, they are seen as cheap labor, compared to the standard ESL teacher. I have heard of some manipulation of visas and holding of passports. In other words, they are often treated as third-class citizens.  I know of one training school in South China that treats Filipinos very well, but it seems to be an exception than the norm. Extremem caution and due diligence is required for these teachers.  -- nashboroguy
