  2. Excited about Hangzhou

    Hi guys! Someone on a Facebook group offered me this website. It is good to know that there are other foreigners around. I will be coming to Hangzhou at the end of February. I am a senior year business administration student and will be an exchange student at Hangzhou Dianzi University. Although being really excited about Hangzhou, I have some concerns, too. First of all, I am looking for a shared flat not so away from the city center. Anyone searches for a flatmate can contact me. I also wonder job opportunities for those without Chinese. Is it likely to get a part-time job, or perhaps an internship related to my studies? Anyway, it would good to meet new people and make some friends. Cheers,

  10. Hi All, my name is Alisha, I am a Brit and I will be moving to Hangzhou in 8 days! I am very nervous but excited. A Google search led me to this page and I hope somebody on this forum can help me with my query. I am moving to Hangzhou for 9 months. I have free accommodation and a job. My question is will 2300RMB be enough for the first month I am in Hangzhou? before I get paid *I will not be doing any touristy stuff and the accommodation is free. *My costs will be food, travel to and from work and phone calling. I know it depends on lifestyle but I will be very frugal as I just can't afford more than this after flight and visa costs. Please let me know if this amount is realistic to get by on.

  17. What is Capoeira? Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance and music. It was created in Brazil mainly by descendants of African slaves with Brazilian native influences, probably beginning in the 16th century. It is known by quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for leg sweeps. Try also searching YouTube for capoeira roda or just capoeira :) Now in Hangzhou! Schedule Tuesday/Thursday - 8:00pm – 9:30pm; Sunday - 6:30pm - 8:00pm new at Guodu Business Tower (Crossing of Fengqi Rd and Zhongshan Middle Rd, room 2002 (Subway: Fengqi Rd exit A1. Enter the compound on Fengqi Rd, turn left, go until you reach the building, go to the 20th floor 国都大厦2002室 凤起路近中山路) Contact us: 15800336687 (EN, CN, RU), 158-5819-1393 (BR, CN, EN) E-mail: capoeirahangzhou@gmail.com Capoeira FAQ = WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER DONE CAPOEIRA BEFORE? You have to start somewhere? We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there. = I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY TYPE OF MARTIAL ART OR DANCE CLASS. CAN I STILL TRY CAPOEIRA? Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity! = WHAT IF I AM NOT FLEXIBLE OR NOT IN BEST PHYSICAL CONDITION? Don’t let this discourage you! Capoeira is for everyone!!! Young or old, short or tall, girl or boy! Of course, the more you train, the faster you will see results! = HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO LEARN CAPOEIRA? Think of it as learning a new language. The more of the language you learn, the more clearly you can express yourself to others. If your goal is to have a conversation with someone that consists of, “Hi, how are you?” and “I am fine, thank you”, you should be able to do that within a month or two. If you plan to discuss world politics or philosophy, be prepared to spend more time learning the language. = WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? For your first class, comfortable workout wear is fine. Should you decide to sign-up, we have uniforms available for purchase. = SHOULD I BRING ANYTHING? Open mind and positive attitude! Bring a water bottle.

  19. Dear expats, My name is Luis, from Portugal but working in Hangzhou, where I manage a representative office of a Portuguese real estate company. Since last year, if Chinese buy property in Portugal, for at least 500.000€, their family can get a green card to Europe, to work, live or study, and later apply for Portuguese citizenship (European passport). A great opportunity for wealthy chinese families. In 2013, more than 450 residence permits have been granted to investors, 80% of them from mainland China. More than 500 are now waiting the approval of their application. We have several properties with great value and a real market price (not like many chinese overseas real estate companies and immigration agencies, where speculation for high margins is the rule). We also organize the travel in Portugal for the investors and have partnership with different local lawyer offices. We are looking for people interest to promote our project, with the guarantee of good commissions based on referrals. I will be happy to meet you personally in Hangzhou, and discuss further details. Best regards, Luis Lamarosa www.yibilia.com info@yibilia.com
