Xiongmao in Zhejiang (China)

Post by xiongmao » January 29th, 2018, 8:33 am

Hey HA'ers,

I've posted the first in maybe a few more installments of my trip report to Zhejiang Province, China.

Read my first post here on the HA blog.

Since these are the two most popular topics, I've covered dating and teaching jobs.

tl;dr - dating is rubbish here but the teaching has been going OK and I've been able to save 70% of my salary every month.

What a shame it's sooooooooooooo hard to send money out of China :twisted: .

If you want me to cover any other topics then let me know. I'll try and add some photos as well.

In the meantime here's a picture of the school's staff canteen food. Just 2 RMB a go. What's that? Practically nothing. It's worth it for the apple. Eat here every day and you'll save a staggering amount of money. But you gotta like boiled veg.

Some photos of Ningbo now posted on my Zhejiang blog.

I'll take some more once it warms up - it's actually snowing today.

That's awesome xiongmao, nice pics.
It looks pretty desolate though, is it normally like that? Is that why you say the dating is not good there?
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Thanks. I guess most people are at work. But then China's weird in that everyone goes on holiday at the same time - hive mind.

Dating has been dead. Read my story here on the HA blog.

Maybe Tinder and its clones have killed off dating in China and everywhere else.

On the plus side I have yet again saved an entire month's salary so teaching English here is pretty lucrative. At least I am building the ultimate MGTOW warchest of cash.

Sorry but that sounds truly dire, even my worst China experience wasn't anywhere near as bad as that. I just can't understand why you would give up a flourishing career in London's tech industry for such a marginal, low status, dateless, friendless existence in a shithole like Ningbo. Get your ass back down to Guangdong or Thailand where you were happy, ASAP!
