1. Always rent, never buy. 2. You never know when youre going to die. Do what's fun and the money will follow. 3. ESL teaching can be a gateway to bigger and better things. It is also possible to turn it into a financially rewarding career, if you get the proper qualifications. I see no reason to diss people taking ... Full Comment>>

"upwardly mobile" Meh, sounds like a recipe for being rich yet unhappy. We have two different sets of standards for what makes a person "successful". "good career track" Reminds me of the story of the big-name banker who was on vacation in Mexico and found a fisherman who spent his days ... Full Comment>>

That part, about the economic refugees, is the BS part. Not that there arent economic reasons to be here. A friend working in finance in NYC makes close to 100 grand a year but his lifestyle is similar to an expat making a third the salary here in east coast China, where a 20 minute taxi ride across town costs 3 ...

Yet I heard on a Chinese radio station that China should invade Japan, Russia, and the US, and that was being serious, not a joke, but the overseas Ch. do not protest this. Once again, China and its overseas people are being pure hypocrites. Full Comment>>

From my experience with mainland Chinese the latest, university educated young generation (the post 90s), excluding most of the fu-er-dai (spoiled, rotten wealthy 2nd generations)that is, is just about the only hope China has.

Wow, soju, that is a devilish alternative. No thanks. I haven't had any problems since buying only a specific drink (example Jack on the rocks) from a reputable bar. Find a reputable place and order consistent drinks, so you know they're trustworthy. Don't buy 5 rmb tequila shots or the special mixed drinks, that's ... Full Comment>>

In some ways it might be better than an overglorified "analyst" who's paid $70,000 pa to make excel spreadsheets and PP presentations. Also one of the great ... Full Comment>>

"as telling people here you're a teacher" Well you're certainly welcome to live as you want to live, but it seems like an unwise mistake to base one's career entirely on how it makes you appear to others.

That's one thing I've learned in my various homes across Asia. If possible, never ask questions, directions, or where something is located in a store. "Yes" means "Maybe", "Maybe" means "No", and "No" or "I don't know" are almost unheard of. I think it's ... Full Comment>>

OK thanks for the time put forth in explaining that.

OK, that makes more sense, but at the same time, I don't know that the kind of "progress" you speak of is that attractive for the adventurous types who would come here as ESL teachers.

(1) How is ESL teaching not "the real expat world"? (2) There is plenty of reason a western person would live like that. It is China, after all. If you expect businesses to provide your toilet paper for you, then you must be very limited in where you go here. (3) What is a "normal" ... Full Comment>>

Just give into the way things are run here. A 6 pack of Tempo napkins runs for 6 kuai at the local luxury grocery store. It is soft and doesn't rip, even when wet. Just carry a few packs of those around and you'll be fine. Too bad they don't just do it SE Asian style and have a hose in the stall, it's much cleaner ... Full Comment>>
