Articles : Quinn68 commented on news 7 of the Best Western Restaurant Chains in China

I've been in China almost 10 years and I haven't heard of any of these venues. Guess this article only applies to those foreigners living in 1st and 2nd tier cities. Full Comment>>

Blogs : Quinn68 commented on danb261 's blog 3 Types of Jobs for Foreigners in China That Might Make You Rich

"With some experience, an English teacher living in China can easily make more than than a teacher in the US." Um...yeah, if you teach in Oklahoma. And unlike a US teacher, there are no state retirement benefits, excellent medical benefits, 401K, HSA, Social Security (let's face it - the Chinese gov't will never ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Quinn68 commented on news Dating in China - Tips for Your First Close Encounter

Nice article, but it's really only applicable to those living in a first or maybe second tier cities. If you're working in the lower tier cities you'll be hard pressed to find girls who can anything in English other than "Hello" and "Sorry." And forget about finding foreign restaurants or cocktail bars, haha, Full Comment>>

Articles : Quinn68 commented on news How to Avoid Conflicts While Living in China

"I quickly scurry away and avoid eye contact because I don’t feel any kinship with someone simply because we’re both foreign and in China." What, are you a cockroach? Even back in the US I give a nod of acknowledgement when I see another hiker on a remote mountain trail. Sometimes we even stop to talk with one ... Full Comment>>

Articles : Quinn68 commented on news 5 Worst Chinese Cities for Foreigners to Live in

Nicely written article. It's interesting to note how China expats respond to certain cities. Robk hated Zhengzhou, but I loved it. I concur that Fuzhou reeks of apathy, but I know other expats who love it so much they have bought apartments there. I guess how we respond to any given city in China is based on our ...

Articles : Quinn68 commented on news What’s in a Name? Foreigners in China with a Chinese Name

“White” laowais are given preferential treatment often by virtue of their looks. Take English language teachers. A white non-native English speaker will likely be hired over an Asian native-English speaker, because they look more the part." True...if you apply to work as an ESL teacher at one of the thousands of ... Full Comment>>

Rather than risk having a Chinese witch doctor put unsterlized instruments in my mouth, I took a weekend trip to Seoul to see a real dentist. My colleague flew to Bangkok one weekend to get a root canal. If you can afford to leave China for proper medical treatment, then do it. I wouldn't trust these people to put a ... Full Comment>>

Well-written article. I think 98% of street vendors cut corners. I never took that risk, even when there were no other food options available. And to call it food is being generous. Full Comment>>

If you insist on using the word "whence," keep in mind that preceding the word with "from" is redundant. "Whence" implies "from" already. Yeah, this is not exactly news to the rest of us. China is as shallow as a puddle of gutter oil. To be fair, I've seen examples of guanxi in the US, but only in the private sector ... Full Comment>>

The fact that the author experienced this racism in one of the most Westernized cities in China speaks volumes about the depths of ignorance throughout the rest of the country.
