Shopping in China
China Living Tips - Shopping & Leisure

Shopping-in-China

If you are a shop-a-holic, then you'll find shopping in China has a lot to offer, if you go searching for it. You may need to ask the right questions to find the kind of venue or experience you are looking for. Be prepared to barter. Learn some Chinese or take someone Chinese along with you.

Tip: every place that you go to - ask for a business card. That way, the next time you want to go there, you can simply show the business card to the taxi driver. It makes life much easier and you gain a lot of personal independence. In China you can easily buy wallet size business card holders. I kept all my business cards in this, in my handbag, and was able to go anywhere I wanted to go without asking for help or someone to translate for me.

Language Exchange --- I found a truly amazing friend here !
insect1010, Tokyo Japan and Louis, honan China
 
I started to learn Chinese last year and was looking for Chinese friends in ForeignerCN friends & language partners. One day, a person from Honan, China replied me and told me that she is a very busy person so she can't write regularly. Later on, she sent me some documents and asked me how to express things in Japanese and I was surprised by the high level of Japanese she was using and made me wonder what she does for a living. After awhile, she informed me that she was accepted to a doctoral progam in Japanese University and I learned that she was a working obstetrician and gynecologist....and I finally understood why she is such a busy person. In March, she came to Japan. She did not want to trouble me to pick her up at the airport and asked me to wait at her hotel. As I worried, she got lost in the big city and did not show up. I tried to think of all the possibilities of where she might be and kept trying to find her for 5 hours and finally found her in Ochanomizu train station. Though I have not even seen her photo I was so sure it was her! She was carrying 5 large blanket bags on a small luggage cart, bumped up against the staircase. The first sight of her was like this....a small lady picking up large bags that kept falling off from the cart one by one ... This scene reminded me of myself when I first came up from the countryside long long time ago, and I arrived at Ueno train station with my large luggage containing rice, and my brother launghed at me. I was also a country boy then, so I could not laugh. From the next day, she started to study Japanese really hard and also started going to the research lab.. She did not take any days off even on weekends or public holidays. I believe she will definitely complete her Ph.D. I suggested her to remain in Japan after her studyies and work as a gynecologist in Japan. She asked me how to work in Japan and now it seems she is interested in doing so. She asked me many times how to thank me in return for my kindness. So, I told her she does not have to repay me, but she should help others instead of me when she sees they need help. It is my first time to meet such a wonderful friend and I am grateful to be able to help her.

ARE YOU READY TO ROCK 'N' ROLL?
Foreigners in China - Foreigners in China
Whether you love or hate rock ‘n’ roll, GAMMALUX will rock you.

By Cool Han

He stood onstage, bald, facing a couple of hundred fans who seemed more pleased than thrilled to be there. He sang, he jumped, he sang some more. He angled for more interactions. He pointed to one section of the crowd and asked, “Y’all having fun?” Yeah, pretty much. To another section: “Y’all having fun?” Sure they were.

May, 13Club, Beijing, Heavy Metal Festival. GAMMALUX were hard working and humble, rocking hundreds of crazy fans. On the stage he had a deep voice that could cut through the grinding guitar to get to melody notes. Surrounded by astoundingly hard and tough music, he yelled and screamed, creating a ritual background for the audience.
