  1. Hello everyone, I'm moving back to America and have some things I want to get rid of. First priority is a bunch of cat things. I was originally planning to stay here longer and bring my cat to live with me, but something came up and I have to move back instead. So all of these cat items are brand new and unused, I just opened the boxes to take pictures for you. There is a nice cat tree, two scratchers - one sisal and one cardboard, two small bags of cat litter, a plastic donut toy and quite a lot of cat food. I am a health conscious person and I'm picky about what my cats eat, so most of it is good quality canned food, but there is also a large bag of dry food. Here's the breakdown on the cat food: 6kg bag of Meowstard (American brand) dry food 24 small cans (80g each) Meowstard brand wet food, mixed flavors 14 small cans (85g each) Schesir (Italian brand) wet food, chicken & apple flavor 24 large cans (170g each) Natural Balance (American all-natural brand) wet food, mixed flavors Overall this would be at least 3-4 months supply of food for one cat. For all of the cat things together I originally paid about 1000, asking price for all of it together is 650. I would prefer to sell all of the cat stuff together, but if you are interested in individual items please contact me and we can talk. Taking all of it will get you a better deal, though. Here are the pics: I am also getting rid of an electric bed heating pad size 180cm x 200cm, as well as a Joyoung brand slow masticating juicer and a really nice food dehydrator. The heating pad goes under your sheets to make your bed nice and warm during cold weather. The juicer and dehydrator are only lightly used, and they both work beautifully. The juicer does great on all kinds of fruits and vegetables, even leafy greens. I use the dehydrator to make special vegan snacks, but it's also great for beef jerky, nuts, veggie chips, and dried fruit. (Usually I mix the pulp from the juicer with a binding agent like flax seeds and then put that in the dehydrator, it makes interesting crackers.) Here are some pics of these two items: Prices for these items: Heating pad - originally paid 100, asking 50 Juicer - originally paid 380, asking 200 Dehydrator - originally paid 680, asking 300 PM me if you would like to purchase any of these items. Thanks! :)
  2. Hi everyone, I'm a singer looking to collaborate with other musicians. I would be especially interested to work with an electronic music artist who makes beats and such. But could also be interested in forming a live band to do gigs, so guitar and other instrument players are also welcome. PM me if you are interested and we can meet up to discuss creative possibilities! :)
  3. Hello everyone, I'm looking for a roommate for my lovely and spacious 3 bedroom apartment in Yao Jiang Wen Ding Yuan near Zijingang campus. The current roommate and I are both American, but we don't care about the nationality of our roommate as long as the person is clean and considerate. The apartment is fully furnished, with a kitchen, washing machine, and 2 balconies. The room will be available in late December/start of January. Please contact me for more info. Thanks!
  4. Hey everyone, I'm renting an apartment near Zijingang campus and looking for a roommate. It's a beautiful 3 bedroom/2 bath place on the 7th floor of a nice community near the southern gate of campus. I've already got one roommate, but still looking for one more. Prefer fellow Zhejiang University students, but others are welcome as well. Contact me for pictures and more info please! :)

    Just enrolled at Zheda

    Yes , there are lots of foreign students here. I've met people from all over the world in the past few days- India, Nigeria, Russia, Germany, etc. etc. There are actually too many of us to fit in the dorms, so the university is sticking us in a hotel! I'm hoping to rent an apartment soon though, I need a place with a kitchen. Ah my arch-nemesis, physics... It's nice to meet a fellow academic though. :)

    New Zheda student in Hangzhou

    Hi Lin, I'm a new Zheda student as well. I'm doing a masters in biochemistry, but I have to take the language course as well. I might have seen you at the registration, I remember I met a Finnish guy there. I might be interested in being your study buddy, what level of Chinese are you studying? I took 3 years of Mandarin in America, so I'm in the intermediate class. Hope to hear from you!

    Hi everyone, my name is Grace, I just moved to Hangzhou to do my Masters in Biochemistry at Zhejiang University. I'm originally from Virginia in USA and I will be living here for at least 2 years. I'd love to make some new friends, especially some fellow foreign students. I'm at the Zijingang campus, but I also have some classes in Yuquan, so I can easily meet up at either location. Also looking for potential roommates to live near Zijingang... Wish you all the best!
