Thanks for your continuing updates on the Middle Kingdom.

My impression from your posts is that you are not comfortable pursuing the baby-faced undergrads. Fair enough.

But, may I ask - do you receive IOI from them?

Plenty of interest from the younger girls, they're curious about what you're doing in China etc. etc.

I didn't take it further. Really it's pot luck if the girl who gets a crush on you is a 6 or a 10.

I'm not really interested in young girls anyway, as Falcon and Everdred can witness from the KTV place in Bangkok. The young girls were more interested in their iPhones than us!

The sugar daddy/mistress thing is big in China but I have no idea how you go about finding a mistress/friends with benefits.

solution for IPhone addiction would be bamboo cane rapidly applied 20 to 100 times on the backside. But - hey - that's just me.

Sorry to hear you don't like the ingenues (boo-hoo)...................

Anyway thanks for the straight-up response........ seems a bloke can find what he wants.

Is it safe to drink the water in China? Probably not...right? And do they have American products in Chinese supermarkets? What should I bring to China that is only available in the United States? And what should I avoid while in China?

Zboy1,

What part of China are u planning to settle in? I've drank the water straight from the faucet in there and it did not harm me so far... Lol. If u'll stay in the big cities, some supermarkets do have a western aisle, but don't expect them to carry fancy products, jus the basic ones.

Are u chinese? If so, staying with ur relatives or be shown around by them would be a great thing to tackle once u set foot there.

I'll be relocating bases later this year or early next year, of course in China! I've got relatives there and my older sister is well settled with her western husband, I'll ask her about supermarkets, thats something I did not think of planning my move.

Nothing's safe in China - food controls just aren't there. Even the major brand of spring water has safety doubts. Imported food is safer, but what if it's fake?

Now that I can compare Thailand to China, I'd say that Chinese food is pretty terrible. Thai food is amazing.

Anyway, bring medicine and stuff like shampoo (Asian hair is different to Western hair).

Imported food is available, but at prices that are generally twice the price back home. Only supermarkets in major cities have Western goods. Otherwise just get used to not being able to find anything to eat in entire aisles of the supermarket.

Tap water should be boiled, but remember that doesn't get rid of things like heavy metals.

Buy bottled water. Depending upon where you are, you can even taste heavy metals or coal air in the water.

Bring Pepto Bismo or Immodium AD because Chinese have no concept of this and I never did find any my first trip and jetlag with constipation/stomach issues gave me hell. If you have heartburn or acid refulx, you better bring that medicine too. There are LOTS of medicines that are almost impossible to find there, that we use here. Bring a big ass bottle of Advil/Bayer like 100+ count too. If you have no idea which Chinese herbs do what, the women in their "drug stores" will lead you wrong every time.

If you have allergies, bring lots of your own zyrtec, allegra, etc. or nose sprays. Bring your favorite shampoo and body washes, because they don't have stuff here. Colognes too. Their toothpastes suck because Chinese people hate sweets, so they all taste chalky or powdery, even the Western brands.

Also bring lube and many Magnum condoms because their condoms don't fit guys that are ~7" long with decent size girth. There is a Japanese brand you can buy that comes close if you are in Guangzhou let me know and I can send you a picture of them. Super tight pussies will suck off those regular condoms and then you will be on here or Google trying to figure out how to say "Morning After Pill" in Mandarin. LOL

I probably should add stuff like this to the guide too.....meh.

I heard that I shouldn't brush my teeth with the tap water in China? Is that right? Should I brush using bottled water or boiled water instead?

Yeah, I brushed my teeth with bottled water.

Sometimes I cooked with tap water, but bear in mind it could be full of pollutants.

Good luck if you're going to China. I might go back but I have no plan for when and where. I've reached the age where good food and comfortable living trump sexy beautiful women, so Thailand beats China in this respect.
