  1. Hello helloo everyone! Since one month I live in the Sandunzhen area. Even though it's quite far away from the city centre, I really enjoy life over here. It's a very convenient place. The two things I do miss though, are: 1) Hiphopclasses. Wauw, I really want to practice my passion again. I miss it so much. So my question is: Does anyone know a good danceschool/dance centre were they teach Hiphop lessons? (or something simular). This can be in the whole city actually (not Sandunzhen area perse), since I'm quite desperate to find one haha. 2) Expats. I have the feeling that I'm the only international who's living in this area, so my second question is: Are there some expats in this area who would like to meet and hang out some day? Thank you so much for the tips, I really appreciate it
  2. I am Jon Kasimov, 27, and I will be starting my PhD at Zhejiang University this September. Since most of you guys have already experienced the ups and downs of living, working and studying in Hangzhou, I guess it would be wise to ask for your advice and suggestions. Can you guys please share some of your thoughts on living and studying in Hangzhou? I would very much appreciate your time and efforts and I do look forward to meeting you and becoming an active member of Hangzhou Expats group. Thanks very much.
  3. Capoeira is more fun with friends! Bring a friend this Sunday (June 11th) to try capoeira for FREE. This will be a tailor-made first-timer experience class, that will include Afro-Brazilian music, basic capoeira movements and interaction with a partner. TIME: June, 11th (Sun) from 3:00pm to 5:00pm. VENUE: Fengqi rd. 361, Guodu Commercial Building, 21F, use East Elevator (left side), room 2101. Subway: Fengqi rd, exit A1, five minutes walking, close to Fengqi rd. and Zhongshan rd. intersection, entrance from Guodu Community (国都小区). = Capoeira FAQ = Q: WHAT IS CAPOEIRA? A: 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 :)          Q: 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! We start by teaching you the basic movements and you take it from there. Q: I HAVE NEVER TAKEN ANY TYPE OF MARTIAL ART OR DANCE CLASS. CAN I STILL TRY CAPOEIRA? A: Capoeira does not require that you have prior experience on any type of physical activity! Q: 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. Any questions? Contact me via PM.

  7. New to Hangzhou

    Hello everyone, my name is Anuschka and I'm a 25 year old medical student from Germany and just moved to Hangzhou in the end of August for an internship. After my vacation time in Beijing, I'm now looking forward to getting to know people in Hangzhou. Is there certain bars or cafés where a lot of expats usually hang out or does anyone want to meet for a coffee or so?
  8. Playing Squash weekly

    Dear Hangzhou Expats, I am moving to Hangzhou this fall, 2nd week of Sept, and planning to stay 3-4 years to do my PhD. I have searched around different forums for sports and other healthy activities, particularly squash. Most of the squash posts are almost an year old now which made me assume most of the players have settled into their routine and/or found good play mates. I would really like to start playing squash as soon as I am done with initial formalities. Please share your experiences and nearest courts to Yuquan campus and how regularly do you play. Thank You :)
  9. A returning newbie:)

    Dear All, my name is Ling:) I was Born and raised up in HZ. About 14 years ago, I left HZ for college and have been away since then. After living in USA for about 7 years, I am moving back to HZ in Aug. I would like to make some new friends here, especially someone who are interested in soccer or slow-pitch softball :) In addition, I am licensed to practice law in China and the state of New York. Though my practice is focused on business transaction, I will be happy to do some pro bono work for those who are in need. [please send me private message for my contact information] Thank you! P.S. Is there any fan of Washington DC Nationals ? Lol
  10. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work on a blockbuster movie production? Are you an expat with a creative mind, an eye for detail, and lots of energy? If so, you can begin your career in the film production industry while you’re here in china! An elite Hollywood production team is filming a high-end concept movie and is seeking creative minded individuals interested in careers in the fashion or film industry to work as interns on the set. The film features famous actors from China (Fan Bingbing, Li Bingbing, Cao Kefan, Leo Wu), America (Chris Evans, Orlando Bloom, Amanda Seyfried), and Korea (Lee-Jung-jae) and is directed by Roger Donaldson (Bank Job, The November Man, and Species). Bliss Fashion is currently accepting resumes from high energy people, with an eye for detail and who would like to develop key skills in the Film and Fashion industries. The internship will be based in Shanghai and will begin this month (April, 2016) and continue until August, 2016. There are two main fields that interns can apply to work within: 1) Fashion Internship – working alongside professional fashion stylists assisting with campaign, and movie styling. 2) Production Interns – assisting producers in their tasks regarding logistics planning, and movie production, setting up backdrops and sets helping coordinate with extras and talent on the shoot. *Both internship divisions may be required on occasion to work as extras acting in the film. No prior experience in these industries is required, but it is certainly an asset in the selection process. A successful applicant would need to be able to fully commit their daily availability to be involved with the project for a set period of time (Note: the internships can begin later than April, but the busiest months when the majority of filming will be done will be from May to August). Experience with MS Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) is important. Most of all, an ability to work professionally, dedicated and do all you can to help the team succeed are required. This is a paid internship to cover the living costs throughout the course of the internship. The most talented, passionate and involved interns could be offered full time positions working for Bliss Fashion on future projects. If you are interested in this position and would like to apply, please send a CV (including professional profile photo) and cover letter, and, if you have one, a portfolio of creative works (photos of fashion creations, modeling shots, pictures from film or theater involvement, and other artistic and creative works) to us [please send me private message for my contact information] In the email please indicate * The position you wish to apply for * When you will be able to start the internship and how long you can commit to it * Where you are currently living in China (or abroad) *What type of visa you currently hold and when it will expire Thank you for your interest and we hope to see you on the set of The Dragon & Pheonix! All the best, The Foundya Team SMART CHASE_One Sheet_EN(1).pdf

  14. Hash #176 is the Back to School Hash. Hashing is a social running and/or hiking trail event with some silly games. You can read more on our website http://www.hangzhou-hhh.org/?page_id=2. Saturday (12 September) afternoon meeting at 2:30pm about 1km N-W of the N-W corner of West Lake! Note the new autumn meeting time of 2:30pm. For this Hash event, think forested hills, scenic views, (somewhat) ancient ruins, picturesque parks, monuments and fragrant tea fields. All followed by a few drinks and frivolity (and an optional dinner together too). Walkers/Hikers and joggers/runners are all welcome. At the end of the trail (back at the start point at about 5.30 or 6pm), we expect all participants to stay for 30 - 45 minutes of fun and games (drinking and some singing - but you don't have to drink beer, if you don't want to). After that, it's up to you if you want to stay for the jolly group Bash (dinner). We do hope most people stay for the dinner. Hashes are on whether it is raining or dry, so bring a change of clothes (and maybe shoes too, if it has been raining a lot during the week before). You can leave a bag at the start point. The Hares (aka trail setters) tell me that they have another awesome Hash trail planned featuring scenic and cultural sites you might never encounter on your own. Send us an email and we will send you the full details of this week's HZH3 Hash meeting location in our current HZH3 Newsletter.

  15. Newbie in HZ

    Hello all! I'm new in Hangzhou, been living here for two weeks. In fact I'm so new that I really don't know what's the proper name of my area, but I can tell you, it's not the slick areas with champagne and caviar at least. Dong dong was it called by a fellow colleague? (Close to the work trade off.) My name is Andreas, I'm from Sweden, I'm 37 years old and I work as a engineer here. I'll be here for at least 3 month. I've been doing pretty much all hard labours you can imagine before I finally grew out of the beer drunken haze and got myself a masters degree in science. I still like a good party and rock'n'roll though. I play table tennis, badminton and tennis so if any of you is lacking a companion, please let me know. I like hiking, racing, technology, quantum physics, motorcycles... blabla. I have too many interests! I pretend that I can play guitar, but I imagine that eventually, one day, I'll have to stop pretending. Anyway, just wanted to say hello to you all!
  16. Table tennis, badminton or tennis

    Hi! I'm new in Hangzhou. Been living here for a week. From what I've (not) heard at my work noone knows where one can play som ball sports like table tennis, badminton and tennis. I live in the Jianggan disctrict and would like to find some people to play with for fun. Especially table tennis shouldn't be that hard... It's China for heavens sake. If anyone have any suggestions I would thankfully recieve them. BR/ Andy
  17. Hi everyone, I hope to see you this summer for a few beverages! Some random questions for current residents of HZ: - Is there much smog there lately? If so, is it an issue? - I'm used to being on the water. Any opportunities to go sailing or paddling (kayak or canoe)? Cheers, and thanks in advance for any input! Em

  20. Hey guys It’s nice too meet so many foreign residents here. My friends and I are students of high schools and we really want to have a friendly soccer game with you. No matter how well you play soccer, we sincerely invite you to join the event. We are students interested in soccer rather than professional players. Therefore, the purpose of such event is to have some fun and get a great experience with people from different places. Hope we can make friends~. Besides if you are interested in getting more information about Hangzhou, you can also contact me and have some conversations. The time of the event depends on you guys’ schedule and we will pick a proper time for all players. We plan to have the game in Hangzhou gym on Tiyuchang Road. The soccer field’s condition is good and its size is for games of five to ten people each team. We will make everything settled and you needn’t worry anything I believe. If you are interested in the games, please tell us by replying or contact me.
  21. Hi everyone. relatively new to hangzhou and was wondering if anyone knows a good sports pub here to watch the English Premier League this weekend. Cheers!
  22. Gym Equipment for Sale

    Hey there, Moving to Shanghai and I have couple of items to sell before I move out. If I had space in my apartment in Shanghai, I'd definitely bring it with me, however, that's not the case. If you're also like me and had enough of the disgusting and/or ridiculously expensive gyms of Hangzhou, this equipment is a good option. I'll basically give it to the highest bidder, although I've bought it for 2800 RMB about 7 months ago. I'll trow in some dumbbells, barbells, yoga mat etc as well. I'm living in Shan Shui Ren Jia, we can arrange some sort of delivery. Cheers, A
  23. Are there any good places to play sports? I've heard a lot about places that can be rented, but I was wondering if there are any open, free soccer fields (indoor or outdoor) or basketball courts, just for shooting around and dicking around? Also, are there any soccer or basketball club teams or house leagues in Hangzhou? Lacrosse probably hasn't made it this far out here, but any lax players on here? I'd be down to toss around and rip some twine.
  24. Hi Sports fans and Friends, I've been approached by the guys and girls of the Hangzhou Harlequins Rugby Union Football Club and some regular 5-a-side-Football/Soccer players about holding a mixed sports afternoon on Tue, 4 Feb, with a mostly social focus. I guess I am the contact person for the Ultimate Frisbee and Running/Hashing groups... This event is more for the members of these community groups, but if you're quite likely to join at least one of the groups, or really keen to network with Hangzhou's sporting community, then I'm sure you'll be welcome. Guys and Girls and Expats and Locals are all welcome. e.g. The Hangzhou Fish Hawks American Football team is welcome, of course, but they seem to be less visible than most of the other groups... The social sports afternoon will include some 5-a-side-soccer/football, touch rugby and ultimate frisbee plus I'm sure there'll be some other fun activities too. You can try a bit of everything, or just sit on the sidelines and meet some new people. SPORTS Date: Tue, 4 Feb Time: 1 - 5pm Take: Sports gear and maybe a change of clothes if you're going to get right into it. Water and Beer or your drinks of choice. Place: the 5-a-side-Soccer/Football fields on XiXi Road just to the north of the Yellow Dragon Stadium. Google Map: http://goo.gl/maps/yieFM Baidu Map: http://j.map.baidu.com/MXOvT BBQ Date: Tue, 4 Feb Time: 5.30pm to late Take: Bring your own (BYO) meat or veggie patties or whatever. (Maya's kitchen will be open then, if you prefer that) Place: Maya Bar 玛雅酒吧 Address and Map: http://www.morehangzhou.com/venue/detail/maya-bar.html If you haven't already heard about this via the Rugby or 5-a-side-Soccer/Football groups, then please send me an email so we can have a rough guide as to the number of people attending. Email: HangzhouUltimate [AT] gmail [DOT] com Cheers and Beers!
  25. The dearth of excitement in the city during the upcoming holiday reminds me that I really ought to try to get some decent home entertainment sorted out for myself. Is anyone still providing a decent satellite TV service here? Or cable TV, for that matter? (Although I've found most cable packages in China to be pretty worthless; they rarely have any decent sports options, for a start.) I already have TWO dishes on my balcony, but have no idea if they're still functional, or who I should contact about attempting to hook them up again. A regular fix of English Premier League Football (and the World Cup in June), with English commentary, would be my top priority; but HBO and some decent movie channels, maybe BBC World, Al-Jazeera, and CNN would be nice to have too. F1 motor racing and American NFL and tennis, especially Wimbledon, I also sorely miss. Vineyard and Reggae Bar try to stream their sports off the Internet, and it's a bit of a disaster; is this just because their owners are cheap?? Or is there no decent sports satellite service available any more? (Back in Beijing a few years ago, we were all relying on a service from the Philippines, but that got knocked out, and we were bereft for a while.) Amigo seems to have a decent service - for American sports, at least. Maybe I should ask there.
