This thing is still standing there doing nothing. 500RMB
Here’s a start: Home Buying 101: How Can Foreigners Buy a House in China? by Maxxelli Consulting, Chengdu.
Is taking two cats home as expensive as two times one cat? Or is there some sort of cheaper option to put both of them in one cage?
Also, what’s the total price these days?
It’s true in Hong Kong those are not as easily available anymore as they were before. In Chengdu, it’s business as usual (with the occasional downtimes depending on the situation).
2. Marriage visa, student visa, and tourist visa. If you are American you are eligible for a 10 year tourist visa, with a duration of 60 or 90 days for each stay.
Don’t forget the business (M) and commercial visas (F) that generally allow stays up to 90d, 6M or 1Y and can be obtained through many visa agencies – but almost never by trying on your own. (unless maybe the visit is actually legit and you have all the proper paperwork and companies and a real good purpose to back things up).
None of which you would be allowed on to legally work.
I think I mentioned this last time, but the grass fields of Sichuan University are a quite popular spot to hold these type of things.
Interested in details also.
It is hard to imagine what would attract people to another grocery store when there is Taobao.
If you could open it right downstairs my compound, that would be great.
I used ANT moving company when I changed apartments, and their smallest truck was something around 200RMB including 3 guys who moved literally every single thing (boxes, chairs, tv, bicycles, scooter, random crap) from inside my old apartment into the new one. I do believe there was a small surcharge for TV’s over 42″ or something.
If it’s really not a lot of stuff and you want to save money, there’s always a ton of people hanging around at the exit of IKEA trying to help people to move their stuff. Last time I paid 50RMB to get home with my load. I guess if you take a Chinese friend you might be able to get it done for 100-150 (considering you have to guide them to your house and then start moving, which will take a lot more time). They probably won’t help you bring it upstairs, though.
Which products do you deliver to which supermarkets?
It’s just a standard criminal record check from your local police station, to prove you have a clean slate.
FYI Natooke also offers the service to dismantle your bike and put it in a box for you to travel home with – in case you don’t manage to get rid of it and/or want to keep it.
I am currently using a simple CMB account to send money home. Would there be any obvious benefit in having a Chinese HSBC Advance account in stead? How different would that be from a HK one?
I’ve been in some really ridiculous situations with Chinese banks before, and I always have this fear in the back of my head of somehow losing access to my account and my money, lol.
Don’t have 500k RMB, so a Premier account is out of the question.
If you pass me your wechat I’ll invite you to a group where you’ll find many 2nd hand scooters and motorbikes.March 28, 2017 at 10:20 am in reply to: American Looking for Other Foreigners to Hang Out With #52424
There’s a salsa night every Saturday evening in some venue in Lan Kwai Fong. It’s mostly Chinese, but the few times I’ve been there there were always some foreigners too. Might want to check that out depending on how much you love salsa.
Couldn’t say exactly where it is or what it’s called, but it’s on the ground floor somewhere more tucked away in the back. Not too far from Revolucion.
Yeah if you want to teach a handful of hours per week (or less) then private tutoring would be your easiest option. Lots of moms and dads want their kid to learn English properly after school. I think your idea is not bad since you have to find a way to get in touch with them directly.
I actually really like some of the ANTA stuff. They are also the official partner for the gear of the Chinese Olympic teams, so it can’t be that bad.
Raffles City is another really popular and huge shopping mall. TaiKooLi is great for shopping as well. Both have official stores for all those brands you named. But prices for these kind of brands in the official stores are geared towards the upper middle class and you will not find any bargains. They are probably the same, if not more expensive than what you would pay back at home – since they’re international brands. “Overpriced” is simply what those brands cost over here. Expect 600-1200RMB for a pair of Nikes/Adidas. If you want to pay half and get a reasonable shoe or sport outfit you’re going to have to look at local brands like ANTA or 360.
If you want to find fake Nikes, you should avoid shopping malls and just do some exploring and looking around smaller shops. There’s very little of that the be found here apart from Taobao (and even there it’s much less than it used to be), but some older models cheap/fake Nikes can be found. I wouldn’t know exactly where, though.
Shopping in China can be ridiculously cheap, but only if you stick to the local stuff. Especially for a woman if you’re into things like high heels, and don’t mind buying fake leather unbranded shoes.
