I have to post this. I have so many male friends, me included that search for a Western girl! You have the option: too busy, too proud about herself, not available (often not true), etc.... Whats wrong with the Western girls here in Shanghai? We don´t get it, can somebody explain?
Hey Shanghainese, I wanted to ask you, how it was for you to come to Shanghai? I came 1 month ago and for me its kind of a shock as I have to learn the language, handle the Chinese, as they have different manners/habbits etc. I really like Shanghai because of the food, that people are so open and nice, the crazy partys, having an Ayi, going by taxi everyday. What is your experience? Would love to hear what people say, how it was for you to come to Shanghai? Xie xie ;-)
Hey Shanghai people, A lot of people tell me, there are so many nice places around Shanghai! Which spot is worth to go, as I don´t want to waste time, as my freetime is limited!? Which place do you recommend: Nanxiang, Tongli, Chongming Island, Songjiang, Sheshan, Suzhou's Ancient Gardens, Hangzhou's West Lake, Yangtze River Water Town, Sheshan Sculpture Park, Yixing and the Art of Clay Teapots Thank you.
I wanted to ask you, if we need summer / winter time? I find it totally nonsense, as here in China we have during the winter 7hours and from today 6hours. Summer time is much better for doing business with the world. When we have 16pm, Europe wakes up, so you always have meetings late with Europe and you have to do overtime at the office. Its only one hour, but I know this hour is important. I hope it will change one day! Background: European Summer Time is the arrangement in Europe by which clocks are advanced by one hour in spring and moved back in autumn, to make the most of seasonal daylight. This is done in all of the countries of Europe except Iceland, Belarus, and Russia. Summer Time was first introduced in some countries during the First World War, then largely abandoned with some exceptions, mostly during the Second World War, until the 1960s and 70s when the energy crisis prompted a wide scale re-introduction. The practice has been fully coordinated across the continent since 1996. (wikipedia.org)
What is the weather/climate for Shanghai during the year? Is it pretty much the same climate all year round or are there more extreme temperatures for each season? I just haven't lived here long enough and am wondering how to adjust to the climate since it's so different to what I am used to. Thanks,
