    This a a quick reference for new members to this forum and even forums in general. Many on this forum started right where you are, and have over time built up and become part of the "family", so to say. If you are familiar to forums, great. If not here is the most basic of things you need to know. Straight off the bat, the term newbie, will be your tag for a while, this does not mean anything bad. It is simply a reference to the fact that you are new to the forum. "A person new to a game, concept, or forum. Not to be confused with n00b, a stupid person. Newbies are just new." - Urban Dictionary. You have come to this forum, either to meet other/new people, or to simply ask a question. Both are fine, but please pay attention to the guides when asking questions. The chances that you will get a solid answer, covering the question/s you have asked will depend on a couple of factors: Use the search function within the forum, to possibly find the same or similar question you have. This way, it makes it easier for the next person to find the answer to their question. If you do not find the question/answer you are looking for, you can create a new topic under Hangzhou Questions & Answers. When posting, keep it as simple and as clear as possible. This makes it easier for our multi-national, multi-lingual community to assist you. (We know and understand that not everyone on this forum is a native English speaker.) Please use common sense. "Dumb" questions will have our unique trolls and keyboard warriors on you quicker than you think. This goes for repeated questions as well. Manners cost you nothing. We are a community of different races, cultures and beliefs. Try and ask or say something in the same way you would to someone on the street, without the possibility of being punched in the teeth. If you do create a topic, do not simply "hit and run". Meaning, do not post your question, get your answer and disappear. Give credit where credit is due. On the bottom right of the answer you have received, there is a green arrow pointing up, simple click on that, and say thanks to the user for the information. I hope that this gives a better idea of how to co-exist a little easier, and make the adjustment to China smoother.

    They will normally only deliver if you live within a certain distance..... I'm thinking you are probably beyond that distance. You can order in English, no problem. Follow the steps below and try your luck: Step 1 Call 4008-517-517 from your home phone or mobile Step 2 Press ’2′ for English (or press ’1′ for Chinese) Step 3 If this is your first time calling, you need to register your address with them. So just tell them your address (they are speaking English after all). If it’s not your first time, they will tell you your phone number and address before proceeding to Step 4… Step 4 Order your Big Mac, McChicken sandwich or whatever other delicious food that you want! Good luck.

    As I'm sure many of you have experienced, finding good competent sales and marketing is very difficult. And the concept of 'initiative' is a complete unknown. I've had a 'professional' marketing person say they don't know how to contact a university to organise a seminar there... And the number of people who don't bother following up on leads is ridiculous!!! So, has anyone actually managed to find that incredibly rare breed of person who can actually do what they say they can? I'm in need of good people... not just people who say they're good

    Hi James! I hope you have a great experience in Hangzhou, when you get here in July of course! I will most likely be done with my stint here then, but I thought I would extend a welcome because I saw you were from Cinci. I'm from Dayton! I don't think that you will have any problem finding a place for your budget. My friend has a nice place not too far away from the main downtown areas of the city for only about 2000 a month. It is a little small, but your budget is larger so you can probably find a much nicer place! As for something to bring, personally I wish that someone had told me to bring lots of deodorant. I know that sounds weird, but it is really hard to find deodorant here in the winter. Maybe I was looking in the wrong places, but all the stores and even the specialty stores like Watsons didn't sell it in the winter. One more thing, try to ignore the rude comments on here. This is a really great forum to find answers to things, but sometimes you have to put up with the negative remarks. Not everyone is like that, and not everyone has time to sit and troll, i mean comment on, every post on here everyday! So again, I hope your stay in China is great!

    I'm sorry if the welcome you received was less than enthusiastic. Let me try and fix it! Welcome to Hangzhou! How long are you planning on staying? I don't mind spending a few moments to fill you in on some places to go! No skin off my back. I can't tell you many places to go in Xiasha because I don't live out there, but if you are up to making the journey into town there are a few places a lot of foreigners congregate! The Vineyard is one, and there is Ellen's right down the street. Ellen's has cheaper drinks and food, but the music can be obnoxiously loud. Reggae Bar is another 5 minutes walk down from Ellen's, and there are also a few clubs in the area as well. Coco Bananas is a pretty common place to end the night, and there is also In Club and Maya Bar. Amigos is a tad out of the way, but they have late night drink specials and they make a decent cocktail. Around the west lake there are a few more places definitely worth checking out. Eudora Station has good food and a nice atmosphere, but they are a little pricey, Slims is right down the street and is more of a restaurant than a bar, but they have a nice foreign beer selection. G+ is a club in the area that is pretty popular, but I think it is a bit small (although that seems to be a common theme for clubs here in China). Usually a group of us is always out at one bar or another on Friday or Saturday (if i'm being honest, usually both) feel free to PM me if you want more info or would like to join us sometime! I hope this helps!

    Dear Goldstein, I do not know where in Europe you come from, but in the Europe I come from there are nowhere near as many "daddy's little girls' as there are in China!! Now, as a European, I have funded myself throughout undergraduate and postgraduate university (in the UK where tuition fees have been criticised for increasing rapidly the recent years). I have never borrowed or asked for money from my parents since I was 16 (nor have they given me any). Most of my friends and flatmates from back then where also very independent financially from the moment they left home. Their parent may have paid for tuition fees, but rent, food, and any other financial extras were paid by them. And all of my friends (and yes they are under 30 and not married) are now completely financially independent and that, ever since their graduation. Compared to what I have seen in china, most of the girls I have worked with (or for) have relied on their parents/ boyfriend/ husband to satisfy their every need. These needs may not have been financial. It varies from housekeeping, to cooking, but don’t forget to trough in the odd LV bag or the brand new IPhone 5 every now and again. Of course I am not so ill-mannered that I will generalise for all Chinese girls as what you said is true and a lot of them work far away from home receiving a very low salary. That said you cannot generalise for all European girls either! :-D

    For two pages members have insulted, castigated, berated and have not written a positive comment about Turbo. I wish to contribute my two cents worth by praising the poor guy. His writing skills are beyond reproach. He can write far better than 99% of native speakers. His ability to describe his attributes is admirable. The guy makes himself appear to be almost as good as I am, but I can't write as well as he can. Alas, that's probably why I'm a lonely old fart who spends nights in front of the TV smoking a cigar and drinking a cup of tea.

    It might be worth adding... before posting the question (or ju7st answering any) to make a post in the "New Members" section first. I'd like to add to that - don't just say "Hi, I'm new here...". something a bit more informative about yourself would be nice! This is especially true if you're going to be looking for advice - so where in HZ you'll be staying is MOST IMPORTANT!!!

    I came to China with a commitment to help older Chinese people experience a new lifestyle in retirement and aged care living. To enjoy their lives in old age. To understand that despite the Chinese thinking that retired = OLD, it can mean a new life, a renewed enthusiasm for life, meeting new friends outside their life long local neighborhood, getting and thinking outside their "box", having fun, meeting new challenges, growing younger in mind and attitude despite growing older in body, discovering how retired seniors can live a happy and enjoyable life in an completely new environment. I'm happy and proud to say, that despite some serious issues and challenges for me personally and financially, my time here has achieved those objectives and commitments, for the many seniors who welcomed me, took up the challenge and believed in me, and my commitment. I also came to experience the culture, the people, the food, the fun, and to discover the new love of my life. I am happy to say, that those experiences have been achieved. Three months from now, (probably to the delight of some here), I, and my beautiful wife will return to Australia, content that my life long commitment to helping others in hospitals, ambulances, retirement living and aged care, has also been achieved in this vast Country. My leaving will be more sadness than happiness, but life is full of both. Of all the health, aged care and community service related things I have done over many years, this has been the most emotionally challenging, rewarding and satisfying. I regret nothing despite some serious setbacks, and will always remember my time in China as one of the most wonderful experiences one could imagine.
