Open pits in Shanghai to burn bodies? Oh my god, I think you need to see a psychologist haha
248 million new infections throughout china 500,000 new infections within 57 hours
Politics are complicated, at least what youtube offers don't cover much. For the Christ sake, shut your clown show
So many unpaid loans and many defaults on loans never making one payment.Like Russia China bluffs continously bragging but there's nothing to brag about. But instead failure poor planning and a huge ageing ageing population meaning certain failure.The China one policy has bitten to the bone there's no getting around it.
oh really? so they are done with Afghanistan, aren't they?
First of all, there is a big cost difference between the area of city center and the area outside of center. It is easy to notice the difference by comparing the house price and rent price between the two areas. Furthermore,the rent also cost the biggest part ( almost 40%-60%) in the monthly expenses. So, a simple way to judge if your salary could let you live well in Shanghai is that if your salary double the rent cost of your working or living place. For example, if your salary is 15,000 RMB and you live in city center, you could have a happy time working in Shanghai.
Secondly, if you cannot get enough salary, there is still many ways to live well. China's e-commerce is so popular and developed that you can easily get low-price products, such as clothing and shoes, almost all articles for daily use, much lower than the price showed on this website.
Finally, there is at least 3 reasons to recommend you to cook by yourself. Cooking at home cost less than half the price of having a lunch in an inexpensive restaurant. Food safety is a serious public concern among China society of which the current situation has been better and well managed in recent years. However, it's still not recommended to often eat outside. And, Chinese cuisine is rich and varied which has developed over thousand years. Why not have a try on cooking your own Chinese food which is a typical traditional culture of China treasured by almost every Chinese people.
Hope my advice could help and welcome to Shanghai.
P.S. Forget my poor English.
let's take an example: foreigners go to cityshop high-end supermarket to buy eggs, each may cost from CNY 1.5 ~ 3.5. then local resident go to fresh market, egg cost from CNY 3.5 ~ 5.6 per kg, which usually is only 20% ~ 25% price comparing to the price in fancy places.
most of the data here are input from foreigners or migrants, they don't really live in the city, just come for making big money & then go back to hometown. So it does not fully reflect the reality for local residents' life.
I wish those people never step in China, even when their country is in chaos, war or the allign country betray them and start to invade their country, gov is a sh*t, please don't ask Chinese gov's help or accept Chinses recouces.
and don't use the products made in China, dont's use app, high tech from China, please insist to be blind, poor and arrogant, open the telly and know th world from your media, lol.
Although I don't have any hatred for any Chinese citizens many do and they shouldn't. Remember Chinese citizens are feeling the brunt of the CCP daily.China is on the road to decimation and after the pandemic has cost so many lives globally and needlessly that forced people around the world to view China much differently for good reasons.Loved ones gone forever never being able to share laughter and life with them is a big price to pay for the CCP heartless greed and zero respect for all of mankind.
What does "Market" mean in the section of "Distribution of expenses using our statistical model"?
This month with the coronavirus, we aren't eating out and only getting our groceries locally-- I estimate we'll only spend around 5k per month on food. And lots of cooking at home.
