  1. Burger King: Where?

    Carls Burgers is so-so. I used to eat there during my college days as I got tired of eating In N Out constantly. the good thing about Carls is the size factor. Burger King back home was never busy, similar to KFC. But here in China, BK is definitely the only way to go if you have choices. Yes, there is one in EAC and here in the northeast Linping area. I tried the other night but they were closed. Not sure if they were just closing as staff were there, or if they were closed for CNY.
  2. English teacher needed

    This may be a misprint, but teachers please read all job adverts very thoroughly and ask for clarification. This advert claims they will offer 5,000RMB if you continue to sign on for a 2nd year. What does it mean if the teacher completes the first year and leaves on completion of contract? Please clarify for future applicants to avoid false advertisements and contract issues in the future. Cheers
  3. Incoming from Australia

    Regarding the coffee bit, there are many local cafe shops that offer decent freshly brewed coffee for 12-15 yuan all day long. Coffee is easy to get. Stay away from the hipster Starbucks and you'll be fine. Culture, I agree with Sainthood, but not is all is lost. You can still head to smaller village cities/communities and get a closer look into the local culture and way of life (even this may be debatable).
  4. Moving to HZ from California...looking for Hockey

    I haven't heard anything about the new bank account - 1-year residence requirement. Usually, employers will assist in opening your bank account upon arrival and startup date. Who knows, many changes and some not for better. Banking here has always been problematic for foreigners, let alone locals. We can only hope that new regulations make banking more user-friendly in the future. Cheers
  5. Family Just arrived in Linping yuhang district

    The only international school I know of is Hangzhou International School, located in Binjiang (south part of Hangzhou). Of course, I have heard there may be a new international school opening in the near future. Perhaps, someone who knows more about it can give some feedback. You may want to post this in the Education Forum for more foot traffic. Cheers
  6. Reduced Price: Dell Desktop Computer

    May be interested. Still have the pc available?
  7. 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
  8. Come on peeps, no need for maps.. Just get on any bus and learn the streets the old school way. Much more fun, besides, that's how we did it when we longtime laowai did it. Be adventurous. lol
  9. Banned French Bulldogs

    I would think rotts and pittbulls, especially the latter to be banned before the bulldog. Either way, you can apply to a less populated city near Hangzhou or other cities altogether that may accept those dogs.
  10. Background Check

    Hello, yes, I got a local background check and took it to my state (nevada) secretary of state and had it sealed/stamped and then sent it to the Chinese embassy in San Francisco and they authenticated it. Sent back to me and all got approved
  11. Looking Fresh Taco Shells

    Hey guys, I'm looking to buy taco shells and salsa, but last time I tried Taobao, the shells were quite stale and old. Any recommendations where I can find fresh would be cool to get my mexican food fix. Cheers, Aaron
  12. PS4 GAMES

    Damn it San, you're always getting under these newbies skin. What is wrong with you? To the uniformed idiot who thinks his postings are just for trolling, he's just informing other newbies of other idiot's shenanigans and wants to warn newbies of traps or any possible BS they may run into while here in the Hangzhou community. Keep up the good trolling Sans, Cheers, Aaron

    Actually, I'm living in Linping these days. The wife & kid are in Philippines for now. Are you in this area or in Binjiang still?
