    Update.

    A small guest room will be available later this month, has wardrobe and double bed, 1600 a month inclusive of bills and internet. long term let only (9 months +). I probably won’t be in CD later this year, another room is occupied by a quiet Indian IT guy (24) , he is busy and plays football in the weekend. we sometimes go out together and we prefer someone who would become a friend rather than a paying stranger we have to share common area with.

    The terrace is now more like roof garden now, with toilet, BBQ equipments, light and speakers, and lots of plant. if you like gardening, this would be an ideal place. <span style=”font-size: 13px;”>My family is from northeast China and speaks standard mandarin.</span>

    viewing available from now.

    I guess it would depend on the level of student’s English and his/her purpose of learning. TED is good for familiarize oneself with different accents, as for acquiring one, perhaps expose oneself to a constant accent is better, like watching the BBC for received pronunciation (or other british accents).

    I guess English corner would be of some use for beginners, at least it is an occasion people wouldn’t cringe about uninteresting conversation being spoken among (mostly) Chinese. It won’t help advanced learners if they are not interested in socializing there for they constantly have to bear with the broken English of others and probably pay a fee for being Chinese there :/. and for intensive- ‘where are you from/what do you do/how long you’ve been~’ avoidance, don’t go.

    Chat with native English speakers is good for recognizing and adapting their diction/tone-of voice, but unless with teacher or those who are willing to help and explain, chatting alone won’t help much in improving one’s understanding of more complicated meaning, since the student would only tend to pick-up and respond the things he/she already knows, whilst omit the more complicated things said.

    for me reading/study-of-text is a slow yet efficient way of improving English, reading would help building vocabulary gradually which could be easily sort in categories or to be put in context for use, better if it’s guided by a native English speaker. I’d recommend John L. Seitz’s Global Issues for improving essay writing skills, the text is clearly-structured and well-argued and easy-to-learn. quite similar to watching Ted, I find reading interviews/conversations (such as A Bigger Message: Conversations with David Hockney) is an efficient way of learning ways of speaking whilst inspiring critical thinking/broadening mind, it allows the reader time to pick up things and digest. or find a topical post in for example Guardian’s Comment is Free, and read its readers’ comments ;P

    by guessing, the obvious reason is that the seamless back of a jacket could provide more wind resistance as it could get relatively windy when you travel on a soundless ebike speed

    another reason might be, just like i dont tend to wear slim fit cloths (like suits) for library, when arms have to reach forward for a long time, to desk or in this case the handlebar grip, surface of one’s back is slightly bigger than it normally is, keeping this position for a while arms could easily get tiresome as they have to make some effort in resisting the normal shape of cloths. i dont think many ppl would be aware of this unless arms get really uncomfortable as a result

    seriously…i’m kidding, better ask them

    (from europe to chengdu) I really like Etihad, one of the very few companies/brands i bother to write a positive review. seats comfortable, nice food, enough entertainment programmes, more leg room than most other airlines, you can use Pointspay app to turn your miles into online payment, and its price is very reasonable, i remember last year i bought return tickets manchester-chengdu only a week in advance for about 5400rmb, there might be a massive queue for security check during transfer other than that nothing much to complain about~~

    @amir, thanks for your reply. of course, how can you not be here when you are even on Sichuan TV, it’s just interesting to see how things develop, for sure something was gonna come up from the Spot later, again very little local restaurants could (or are bothered to) do this, small sichuan restaurants are famous for its ignorance in treating customers, (un)surprisingly they seem to be proud in doing so haha, it’s a part of being a sichuan restaurant. in the era of weibo, a creative reply could go viral, like Sainsbury’s renaming of Tiger bread in the UK, would like to see more of it (on chinese weibo), so far it’s mostly thank you for your concern we will improve full stop. safe, and boring. 😛 I dont remember when I followed the Spot on weibo since i dont usually follow any restaurant, let alone one that i’ve never been or heard of before, but when I searched it on weibo after reading Vincent’s comment, surprisingly it turns out that I followed the spot sometime ago and the Spot is also a follower of my account (?!), hence I had the impression ‘heavy presence on weibo’. sorry i might not be thinking from a restaurant customer’s perspective, but~ that’s what i thought. Having seen Vincent’s comment first and saw what it’s been said from the official weibo, I couldn’t be unsuspicious, however I would resist forming any opinion about its food or experience based only on the other’s words. having read about it intensely these days (also in a pr company’s blog), i quite look forward to going there ^^

    @Kelsey & everyone that is joining Next Tue is French night ! i know very little about french cuisine, but the menu looks tempting. we shall plan to go to more chinese restaurants and that’s the main reason i appear in the post ^^, my Chinese stomach is quite lazy…

    Dahaiwan near huaxiba is exceptionally good for someone who is not from guangdong but likes to eat cantonese style, one of my favorites in chengdu, it’s a place I dont mind get up early on Sat for its breakfast. Shrimp dumplings, ducks, durian snack….! :DDDDD for a taste of foreign, does anyone know if there is any Lebanese restaurant in chengdu?

    just googled the Spot, unlike most local restaurants it seems they are very keen in online marketing and have a strong presence in weibo~ it’s very interesting to see how @vincent‘s comment differ from what I read elsewhere, would be more interesting to see if the Spot would spot this post and reply with creative customer relation tactics.

    I dont mind give it a go first next Tue, will PM @Kelsey. ^^ i hope it wouldn’t be ‘lebanese themed’ night as I dont think lebanese would be pleased to see it happen in this restaurant~~ kidding.

    @Ye Ming thanks, I really like some dishes in dongbei cuisine but hate dumplings (dull, after the third one), might check out dadongbei sometime 😉
