  1. ;) I can hardly comprehend what you wrote there, mate. I don't think anyone who is looking for a teaching job - especially with over 3 years of experience - would advertise themselves like that... Here's what I think. I think you're not Canadian or ever been there. I think your real name is Tima Ashurov (gmail, dumbass) or Tima Neprokin (freaked out yet?) . I think you're from Krasnoyarsk, Russia. And I think it was a mistake posting your personal info while making fraudulent claims. Next time - if there is a next time - just say you are not a native speaker. People will understand.

  3. I just checked on that site - ON Gold is 530 for 5lbs + delivery. But it's not THAT more expensive than ordering from myprotein. So, I guess it's worth it. If you bought powder BCAA - scoop it with a spoon, straight into your mouth and wash it down with water. The least cruel method. BCAAs are supposed to have a very bitter taste, even in pill form.
  4. Yep, can't argue there -ON Gold is the best protein out there. It's been dominating the top10 supplements rating on bb.com for many years... The only better tasting protein I ever had was BSN Syntha 6... but that is loaded with sugar and sweeteners. However the price is a real deal breaker for me. If taste isn't an issue and you want to get the biggest bang for your buck - look up doorlab. they to supplement testing and reviews. You'll see that Myprotein products are dominating the ratings. I've used Myprotein for many years - the taste is actually good (chocolate smooth), the stuff dissolves well (especially in water). Myprotein have an online store for Chinese users... in Chinese. And the prices are higher than on the uk site. If you have the money and can afford it - buy ON Gold Standard. Hands down. If you're a cheap fuck like yours truly - look around for the best deal. As far as quality goes- get protein isolate. This will help tremendously if you're having gas problems.
  5. Do not order steak in HZ... especially if the price is too good to be true. I try to avoid it all the same. It's just various cuts of god knows what held together by "meat-glue"...
  6. I have the exact reverse problem. If I buy a bag- they start bagging the items. Usually I have a backpack with me - so I can carry heavier stuff there... So I have a whole system just for shopping in China - and this elderly lady behind the counter just has to go and mess it all up. Every single shop I've been to - they always pack my stuff in the bag. The struggle is real.
  7. this is actually a big problem for me as well... Maybe we can have a new topic or discuss here about good (safe?) protein sources in HZ? I read labels but I really REALLY doubt they are accurate - and then the protein content is super low... Back home we had protein yoghurts, cottage cheese, milk, protein cereals... Chicken breast is cheep in HZ. you need to cook it yourself though. Don't know a single place that offers chicken breast as the main course... Some of those dumplings claim to have 7-9g of protein per 100g. Easy to prepare. Makes you constipated though... Peanut butter - local PB is cheap and has around 22-25 g protein per 100g. Good for making a snack - PBJ. Tofu - multiple varieties. Not a big fan. But a good and available option. Eggs - not too expensive. just boil them. The problem is - it will most likely (depends on what you buy) be more expensive to buy food and prepare it at home than to go to a local diner. Which is ridiculous. I go to those open buffet places where you can choose what you want to eat. Usually ends up costing around 20RMB per meal.
  8. What captain douchebag meant to say is - this subsection is for suggestions on how to improve the forum and to point out what you think is good or what you find problematic with the forum. If you want suggestions and recommendations on bars - you'd be better off asking in the Hangzhou questions and answers section.
  9. what's the processor? did you do anything to it - tried to root it or get a new OS on it? Bought in a shop (receipt) ?
  10. On the flip side - if you find a passport or if there is a missing person or you need to find relatives/ friends of someone who is in trouble... please, PLEASE do not post the passport online on groups with hundreds of people. Edit the page with MS Paint, just put something on top of top of the passport page... better yet - don't post it at all.
  11. Exactly. What matters is consent and not being deceitful Also, here's a crazy idea - what if... almost too crazy to spell it out... what if it's not your fucking business who sleeps with, dates or marries whom. I know, right! absolutely bonkers...
  12. If you buy a new phone - look into xiaomi phones. Good choices in that price range. A new model came out that is like $230. With Xiaomi, you will need to root the device, get Odin and gapps.apk installed. There are plenty of guides online and a great community of people who will support. I was llooking for a new phone and was focused on Mi5s or Mi5s+. Now they have a new model out. Just make sure to get one with the Snapdragon processor and look up what bands it supports.
  13. Well said. It's funny how Chinese apologists don't comment in these topics... This should be on a t-shirt given out to every single expat in China...
  14. Your friend needs to get a lawyer. This is China, mate. Plenty of horror stories to go around of people getting fucked over. Look up Prozzie on YT - the guy speaks Chinese and got squeezed dry... I mean he's living off patreon supporters (basically poverty). Another guy was talking about how he had to pay absurd amounts for breaking up with his Chinese gf... she just said that he beat her. That's it. And guy was paying like 40-60k... Your friend is screwed. Next time just write " I HATE ALL STUPID FOREIGNERS". fucking bigot... Are you implying some Chinese are not harmonious? :O
  15. I agree with san5324. I can't explain it, but it feels that living in China is bringing out the worst of me... and the disgusting part - I find myself needing to rely on those worst impulses in order to function here. I find it extremely hard to trust anyone... which wasn't a big issue before. Now I'm always assuming people want something from me or are trying to fuck me over. That makes it extra hard to find new friends here... I feel I'm more aggressive and waaaaay less sympathetic to people than before. Pushing, shoving, cutting off people... all this shitty behavior feels normal now. And the worst part - I've become contempt with a lot of bullshit which before I found disgusting or unacceptable. I think it's called being desensitized. I see it as erosion of values, standards and priorities. Which is depressing the more I think about it... ____________________ ivanoros - that last point is spot on! I've just recently watched a video on that same topic by serpentza and c-milk (two guy on youtube making vids about life in China). oh and don't forget you will be expected to "return the favor" :) it's a simple game - I "help" you with menial stuff and I get the "right" to demand you help me out when I need it.
