  2. Hi there. I'm new to HZ, and China, and have been here for a few days now. I've been enjoying playing charades with cashiers (I'm sure they enjoy watching me cluck like chicken and they always giggle when I mispronounce milk) Also been doing a lot of getting lost. I enjoy learning about the culture and trying new foods and drinks. Am interested in arts. Also love Trivia Nights. I'm not good, because I used to prepare them back home so I had the answer sheet. But would like to try being on the answering side of things. Not a club person, but like pub/bar vibes. Oh and love coffee :-))
  3. Dear all, The company I am interning for (Zhejiang Foreign Service Corp) are looking to bring out a product based on traditional Chinese medicine. I was wondering whether you could take a moment to fill out this short questionnaire I've designed about whether there would be some interest as regards to such a product. The survey shouldn't take longer than 2-3 minutes and I would be truly grateful for your help! The survey can be found here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/S25ZRKV Many thanks! Ozlem Bas
  4. Hello everyone! I am currently working and living 4 weeks in Xiaoshan as an English teacher. I would love to extend my social circle and get involved in more events in central Hangzhou, so I figured it would be worth posting here! I am a recent drama graduate from Ireland (although I'm Irish-German, fluent in German if there's any German speakers out there!) and previously left a very brief internship in London to explore China in all its guises. If anyone has any interest in theatre, films, the Arts and general cultural events, feel free to message me here and we can exchange wechat details to organise some group outings! Lydia :)

    hilarious contradiction

    I've been here 6 months. 'Hadn't been to any of these foreigner hot spots, since I live out in Xiaoshan. And today, it hit me like a freight train. I wanted a damn burger. No McTurd sandwich would do - I don't eat those in the US either. Just finished an awesome burger at Slim's. Polite staff, had a tasty Californian beer. But my poor, picky Chinese girlfriend was miserable with her caesar salad. I tasted it, it wasn't bad, maybe a little heavy on the garlic powder. Her remedy was ketchup. Anyway, I had to grin at the silliness of how satisfied I was, and how disgusted she was. Good times!

    Ambulances in Hangzhou

    So where I come from (Texas, USA), whenever you hear an ambulance, much less see one, you pull over the side of the road or highway and wait for it to pass. Also, if you're waiting at a red light, and an ambulance starts to pull up behind you, you run that red light to let the ambulance through. Since coming to China though I've seen Ambulances stuck behind cars that won't even switch lanes for it, and sitting through red lights. Is this normal or have I just seen a couple bad drivers that weren't paying attention? Just wanting to plan for any emergencies that might come up in the future -slash- when baby number two comes in early October. Right now I'm thinking the cab drivers are more aggressive and might be a faster, safer bet. But maybe I've just seen exceptions to the norm. Any more experienced China dwellers care to weigh in?
  9. 2 gents, one from Netherland, one from US, promised and agreed to have a few lessons with my little brother as part of the preparation plan before departure for Newzealand. the dutch agreed to start on 8th tuesday, and the US on 9th wednesday. i received a message the night before the first lesson from the dutch,saying couldn't make it . i thought it was ok as we still had one left. and i got the positive answer from this dutch confirming that his friend the US boy would definitely come the next day. and the following happened...... i got the dutch message the night before tuesday 8th lesson, that's alright. the next day, i got the US message in the morning(nearly noon, class was meant to begin at 1pm) saying something happened and couldn't come . i said ok very nicely, and double checked with him whether he would make it or not the next day( wednesday 10th 1pm), he gave me very confident answer. i was not angry until the next morning, receiving another last minute notice.(message arrive 1.5 hours before the time we agreed on) as requested, all the pictures have been removed. that was unacceptable , otherwise i d be no different from those two bloody gents i was very angry, this would be the major reason i open the thread. i d be very grateful if someone would come out to show some understanding and support at least. i took the blame for my part. what about them? they are people can not be trusted.

    we should meet, if..

    we should meet if you believe the world is awful lot bigger than what you have experienced. if you would like to share the wonderful things you have seen, heard, tasted ...etc. if you have a open mind and willing to offer solutions for what you might not enjoy currently. if you like laggers or anything get people talking. if you preyed to meet someone who shares the same value and happens to be your type , happens he/she is single and available, happens has no criminal record, happens to have dental insurance , and happens to have a beautiful face then we should meet ^_^ Samson - the newbie ok folks, i was trying to be funny, and hoping to put all the differences on the table so we somehow come up with objective agreement or something, at the same time, one or two new friends wouldn't do no harm to anyone. people with different experiences helping each other , have a little fun maybe. it seems this idea was very silly from the beginning after all. I'm not offended by joking about my behavior earlier, I'm just unsure about how i am going to read what i see now. huge culture differences for me , someone who spent 6 years in UK, think about how people think and react those never have the blessing to see the world. i can not understand , so i wouldn't expect my people to understand. it's ok everything remains, but its just a shame while we have the chance to make a difference. ( you are not obliged for any of this )
