Articles : Robk commented on news Communication Chaos: 5 Ways to Keep from Losing Your Mind in China

I don't like this article... I think the best solution is to simply leave. There is no reason why anyone should HAVE to sell themselves short (especially if they morally in the right) to have to put up with this crap to get through life. Full Comment>>

Articles : Robk commented on news Why Can't China Attract Foreign Professionals?

I will give my own version and summary why there aren't as many foreigner professionals in China: - foreigners, previously believe China as a mysterious country with a long history... instead they found out most of the history was destroyed and most mysterious thing about China is the ridiculous face concept and ...

Articles : Robk commented on news 10 Status Symbols in Modern China

I think this is yet another re-run article. As joe mentioned, Tibetan Mastiffs have been out now for years. Their temperament is quite bad, especially not being in colder, higher geographical locations. eChinacities is running out of writers? Full Comment>>

Articles : Robk commented on news Departure of Foreign Investors May Cost China 40 Million Jobs

This is no surprise... it was inevitable. The government kept screwing over, scapegoating and creating so much additional taxes and red tape. What did they think was going to happen? They don't care. Their money is all invested in foreign countries or in a bank in Panama. Full Comment>>

Articles : Robk commented on news Effective Today: These Legal Changes Could Affect You

Sounds good but it seems like these are quite late to the table. I am also skeptical if they will be enforced or will be just another Chinese-adapted law in writing only. Full Comment>>

Articles : Robk commented on news Made in China--Not Just Cheap Clothes and Toys Anymore

That is true, China places a luxury tax on "foreign" goods (although iPhones are made in China) that increase the costs by 20-30%. All the jobs to make these phones are in China (many factories are moving out now that China doesn't play ball)... so the Chinese government made out like bandits. Pretty much goes ...

Articles : Robk commented on news The Pleasures of Home after Life in China

Well, since I can speak from experience having returned home for 13 months after living in China for a decade and then returning to China I can tell you this... The food, air and nature are certainly aspects of home that are well appreciated. However, home is boring. Why? Because it is a place you already know ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Robk commented on news 5 Guilty Pleasures in China Expats Secretly Enjoy

Yup, I remember this article. Didn't grab my interest then, still doesn't now. I would suggest perhaps coming upon new material and writers. It is like you (the editors) are under the impression that expats here have a shelf life of three years for the site (possibly for China as well). There are plenty of stories ... Full Comment>>

Oh please, since when is Hollywood supposed to try and act as a moral compass for the world? They only care about making money. All you have to do (and sometimes they do with a great story), is simply not pay to see the movie... and then they will change. Constance Wu can scream and cry all she wants, if she doesn't ...

Articles : Robk commented on news China Plans to Open an Immigration Office for Green Cards (For Rich Expats)

China needs to extend the same offer other developed countries do for Chinese citizens. I don't know why China continues to act like talented foreigners (or even just foreigners in general) need to EARN their way into China. China is not a top choice... not even close. It offers foreigners basically the chance to be ... Full Comment>>

Funny, how the "employer" gets no punishment and how this is news... Is it China's weak attempt at getting back at the Philippines for the recent South China Sea dispute? Probably... Chinese can be petty like that. Full Comment>>

Why does it route through a Chinese server? Can't it just connect via Bluetooth or just stay within the Wi-Fi network? Chinese tech always feel so sketchy and flimsy. You can tell it is a piece of junk before taking it out of the box. Even the packaging usually sucks. And how it is the marketers fault that the ... Full Comment>>

I simply wouldn't tell my younger self. My younger self probably wouldn't have really listened... it is something you need to experience to understand.
