  2. Burger King: Where?

    Yoou can look on Baidu map under "汉堡王“ to find a location near you. I actually have one not that far away from my home, but I live in northeast Hangzhou in the Daguan area.
  3. Hehehe, you're totally right! But oh would I miss risking my neck driving an e-ebike ! :P Cheers
  4. Today
  5. I guess taking the bus or taxi from the subway stop to your work will still keep the monthly price way below the average price you will see in hz ;p

  8. looking for chinese friend

    hi this is my wechat id: 13758163152.
  9. Hey - yes, I totally agree, the location and price are beyond awesome, but it so happens my workplace is not near a metro stop, and my ebike can only handle a certain distance in one go before I have to charge it again, so it's really too far for me :/

  12. How about Montessori Academy in Wangsongling Lu, near West Lake. It's a newly opened Kindergarten.
  13. Schools raided for illegal teachers, does it happen here?

    "Not as rare as you think" implies it happens often. Your above comment essentially repeated my point about Disney being the only major incident.
  14. Yesterday
  15. Consider somewhere like Thailand for this type of major surgery You do not want to go through it more than once

    Thanks for the reply m8. This policy about only native speakers being able to teach English or any other language legally is beyond stupid and extremely unfair. Being from a certain country does not say anything about your abilities as a teacher. I dare say it might even be beneficial to learn from a person who is not a native speaker as we understand how to actually learn the language as opposed to a native speaker who just "grew up with it". Sure, a native speak probably has a greater understanding of the language as a whole, but you would have to be studying at a pretty damn advanced level for that to make any difference. Anyways, thanks for the advice.
  17. Hey guys, planning to travel to Philippines for CNY. Last time I traveled, I had 2 blank pages on my passport, but only 1 remaining after I got my residence stamp for this year. Can I travel to Philippines and back to China as they typically just red stamp for entering and exiting the countries? I still have room on the other pages that have been stamped for coming and going to Hong Kong, Philippines, China. Any thoughts appreciated. Cheers, Nutty Nomad
  18. Awesome ebike for sale ¥2850

    I will check and confirm voltage tomorrow, I know it was the six cell we bought in November so it's pretty heavy but lasts very long. We have never been stopped by the police even when they were doing checks at intersections (except for telling me to get off because only one person allowed on the bike) and have asked around and there doesn't seem to be any problems around the legalities about this look in particular, but if you want to be completely sure maybe ask a local who is clued up about this. If you'd like a test drive them pm me and we can set it up
  19. Awesome ebike for sale ¥2850

    We normally drive about 50 km before it needs a charge and can reach 55 km/h, I've never tried to go faster You are more than welcome to take it for a test drive, drives like a dream
  20. Looking for job in Hangzhou in May

    Best for you would be 51 jobs and look for a job where you can do foreign business with your home country. That way u don't have the whole native English part, unless u want that of course.
  21. Hi everyone! Im from Sweden and I am looking for work in Hangzhou. I am very fluent in both Chinese and English and I have a bachelors degree in Chinese from 中山大学 (Sun Yat-Sen University). I have several years of teaching experience and I am currently taking a 120 hour TEFL course. Im not just looking for teaching jobs, any job is of interest. If anyone has any advice then that would be great! Thanks! /Daniel
  22. Schools raided for illegal teachers, does it happen here?

    Doubt what you like but you are clearly speaking of things you don't know - For example Disney in Hangzhou was closed as the visa their staff had were done in Shanghai and not at the registered school in Hangzhou (although this was a matter of the local Hangzhou gov making a point)- a lot of small training centres have got away with a lot of hiring students etc I was merely pointing out that some do get caught and its something that there is increased vigilance over since the change in visa rules and the new section of the FEB but you go ahead and believe what you want.
  23. -10000 yuan per month. -2000yuan accommodation. -25 hours per week. - you should be a fluent English speaker and hard working. If you are a NATIVE please add my wechat: [please send me private message for my contact information]
