Cool story bro
You could get a bug zapper at a corner hardware store (五金店). Aside from that and closing the window, I don’t think you have many options.May 31, 2011 at 5:30 am in reply to: What area of the city to stay for 1 month, first visit #12281
Hakka Homes (www.hakkahomes.com) would be a great place to stay for a month. Check them out, they have multiple locations.
Wouldn’t it make sense to meet someone first, strike up a relationship, and then move in with them if it makes sense?
Does this actually work in India?
Bank of China is usually considered a pretty poor choice, while Merchants and Construction pretty good.April 15, 2011 at 2:39 am in reply to: Jinlin Peninsula luxury apartment for rent, 15k/month #12172
Oh my God, 15,000 per month? This is officially the most expensive property I’ve seen for rent in Chengdu.
It sure is awesome being a caucasian male in China. Too bad I already have a place to live.
Don’t forget Sichuan Opera!!
VPN for life!!!
I tried this app also. It is awful.
To anyone considering this: DO NOT BUY IT. Use Maps instead. It’s free and 100x better.
Nice one, looking forward to this. I figured there weren’t really any DJ’s in Chengdu…
Computer city has everything. Check that place out, corner of 1st ring road and ren min nan lu. for prices check taobao.com
It’s a type of poker from Texas 🙂
Welcome to Chengdu Isa,
I haven’t heard of a place to learn tango but there are a lot of dance studios in Chengdu so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find what you’re looking for. I’m sure a few of them offer tango but I can’t recommend any specifically.
I’m interested. How can I contact you?
Did you hear about this? I stumbled across it in the news today: http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/europe/07/31/england.rowing.record
Nice!! Makes it even easier.
Well done with your map. I know for certain that Charlie is working on something like that for Chengdu Living. An interactive map like that is a helpful thing to have.
There’s a Uniqlo at Chunxi Lu? I gotta check that out.
About 25-40 yuan depending on the time of day, type of taxi etc.
The newer Jetta’s (they’re called something else here?) cost a few yuan more than the older taxis. 10pm-6am is more expensive than daytime fares but taxis (you) don’t have to pay to take the 10 yuan toll to take the airport highway from the airport to the city – only when you’re going to the airport. Shangliu airport to the South of Chengdu is a fast and relatively inexpensive trip, though.
An alternative is the 10 yuan bus which goes up Renmin Nanlu and passes very near the US consulate. Hope this helps-
Does it sounds like the pinyin reads, in your Sichuan hua example?
你在搞啥子？ zai gao shazi?
I really notice the drawl a lot. The Sichuan accent, so to speak. I’ve heard that Sichuan hua has no tones – is that true?
My #1 tip for learning English – write everything you learn down. Start with words, then sentences, then paragraphs, then journal entries or essays.
