  1. Hi San, I can't seem to send you PMs on this forum. Is there any other way I can contact you?

    Chopsticks

    I really don't know, but my Chinese friends told me the shop is probably more expensive than other places as it's on Hefang. I can really recommend the shop on Tmall I linked above. I paid 240 RMB for a really good quality pair (8 RMB for the engraving) and the engraving in Times New Roman worked out flawless!

    eating around Yuquan campus

    Great post! I have avoided the place you got the skewers so far, some Chinese colleagues told me the place would probably not be hygienic enough. But since you didn't get sick I might give it a try! I could recommend Zhi Wei Guan to you, it's on a sidestreet of Zheda Lu, they have some good Xiao long bao and jiao zi.

    Chopsticks

    Hi, a Chinese friend of mine recommended me this store on Tmall: http://yunhong.tmall.com/?spm=a220o.1000855.0.0.LPmVJC They engrave chopsticks by machine and have a can do a lot of fonts. I had them make a sample with a more difficult font but the result was not great as some lines were too thin. In the end I chose Times New Roman which looks great. You can talk to the shopoqner on QQ and tell them your wishes.

    Where can I buy a bite guard?

    What about going to a dentist and having one made? That would sure fit better. I do't know whether dentists in China offer this service, in THe Netherlands they do.

    Chopsticks

    Thanks Jake, I have actually been to that chopstick store before but did not have my Chinese friend with me so I could not explain what I needed ;) Bringing chopsticks to a carving shop might be a good idea. Do you know what material the chopsticks will have to be then? If no1 know I'll just visit them first and ask what they require ;)

    Chopsticks

    I was thinking of having some special chopsticks made to give as a present to my girlfriend. I would like to have our names written on them and maybe choose a nice design (colors, painting) for the chopsticks and of course they would have to be of good quality. Does anyone know whether there is a store that offers such a service?
  8. These are actually pretty well-established brands. As far as I know, optimum nutrition, BSN and universal are the biggest brands out there. Gold standard whey by optimum nutrition is the most-sold protein world wide. You could go with that but it's a bit expensive. I use optimen from optimum nutrition as multi. Btw, for higher protein meals: In the cafetaria in the international building on Yuquan you can order beef en casserole and pork with black fungus. Add some bowls of rice and you have a good meal. In the same cafetaria you can get some good breakfast with as many baozi and eggs you'd like. You need to be there before 8.30 am. ALso, if you go on Zheda lu from the main gate, after 200m there is a baozi shop on the left with loads of meat in the buns. Other good meals I have had were at grandma's kitchen, green tea restaurant and some small (dirty looking) restaurant in a side street of Xixi road if you exit the north gate to the right. (It's across a small bridge over the water. I have also bought some full wheat bread and peanut butter from the walmart. As for mail, I have never had it sent to my room but I have it sent to my work adress. This works great. If you want you can have it sent to my work adress and Ill bring it t you in building 31. (Im in building 31 also) PM me for the adress.
  9. San posted a link above. I bought vitamins there, seems good. Wish I had money for protein but I wasted $140 by ordering from bodybuilding.com and having it rejected by customs. http://www.bbasupplements.com/default.html

    Sugarfree energy drink

    Wish it was that easy. I don't drink red bull for the calories, I drink it for the caffeine, that's why I prefer it sugarfree. It's just really mind-numbing sitting behind a desk all day and energy drinks are the only thing that keep me awake, hehe.

    They don't and yes it's low. I just haven't been able to find anything better so I'm just coping with it.

    Customs

    Wish I had just spent a little extra, I have been calling with UPS, bodybuilding.com, customs and CIQ every day for 2 weeks now. My package was first detained by Chinese customs and after a lot of trouble it was finally cleared!!! 3 days later I still didnt have my packes, it was being held by CIQ (Chinese inspection lof quarantine). Now I need to go through the same process again, however this time it is even more difficult. Does anyone have any experience with CIQ and how to get an exemption?
