I'd like to move to China

I'd like to move to China with my family. Our economy is crossing by an awful period, so better moving and finding new opportunities and challenges abroad. China and the whole Asia-Pacific Regions seems quite interesting to me.

It would be wonderful finding a job there, perhaps in an international company connected with their european partners.

So that, I'd would be pleased to hear from european people that are living this experience earlier than myself as prior to my further movement I have to get in touch with the reality.

Thanks 4 your welcome comments at this respect.

Merry X'tmas to all of you from Barcelona

  Hi everyone, I'm new to


Hi everyone, I'm new to Shenzhen Party, I have a shop in Melbourne Australia and I like to find good quality babies and kids clothing, shoes etc. Should I go straight to Guangzhou or look in Shenzhen first.

Any suggestions on where to find western brands? No Fakes please.

Kind regards



Maybe this is a shot in the

Maybe this is a shot in the dark. I am writing to ask if you can help me find a company in Shenzehn that I once had contact with some time ago. Maybe it is your company!?
I am new to
I am an artist and I specialize in painting cows and bulls, I am of Irish parents born in England and I live in Germany as an artist since 1987.
I am looking for to expand with my art and maybe into house decoration. I know Shenzehn is very large but I am eager to find a company which is run by a woman and is a famous brand in wallpaper and house decoration. She once showed interest in my ideas.
I believe the company was founded about 20 years ago by her husband who died suffering from the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. It is now run by this lady.
I unfortunately do not have any more information but you may have an idea who I am looking for?! She would be about 40 years old now.
If not then I will be happy to get any response regarding finding possibilities for me in Shenzehn as an artist painter fluent in english and german, I am also a musician, I played for 3 years around europe, I play guitar and sing songs from the 70's up to the modern folk popular songs,
Look forward to connecting with Shenzehnites :-)

Best Regards

Bored of failing once again

Bored of failing once again in the China/Shenzhen Driving License Exam?

Hesitating on paying thousands RMB to the Chinese Agent and/or Driving License "Training School"? you just need to spend 1 to 2 hours per day during 2 weeks reading this bank with 500 RMB!

I passed my exam and got my China/Shenzhen driving licnese in May with this question bank.

Effective 1st January 2013, Chinese government reviewed/added 90% content of the exam. What's worse is, they don't publish the English version new exam question bank anymore......

The Chinese version new exam question bank are available however the translation by Google Translate really sucks! This English version is translated from Chinese version manually and I confirm it works very well! 

Chinese government official annoucement of the new rule(of course only in Chinese)

See what the other foreigners are complaining about:

This question bank book contains about 900 questions and you need to complete 100 questions during the exam. To pass the exam you will need to answer at least 90 questions correctly during 45 minutes.

Contact me to buy this book! Please email me to contact, thank you!

If you are nearby Shekou, we can meet at Peninsula to deal.

For other area I will send you the book by express courier upon receiving the payment.

This is the first time i

This is the first time i visited your website and the layout is very fabulous and i hope to get the suitable article from here. Regards, Miami International Shipping
