About to move to ChengDu again, I noticed google things are banned so I will need a good and stable VPN. I bought one and it never worked in my computer, once I go back home, the VPN works without any problem. Also, most of the frequent used VPN websites are already banned so... what are you doing guys? What can you recommend me?
what about MoneyGram or WesternUnion, from far that's the easiest way to send money
(A little scroll down can find my reason why I won't choose here to study chinese so you can skip some paragraphs XD)
By this holidays time I got issues with SiChuanHua. Fist, it is normal that local older people doesn't have a clue of how to speak normal pudong hua. For example, the owner of my room, he doesn't speak any budonghua, and when we have to communicate, he take a peace of paper and write some letters, and in that way we understand each other. Taxi drivers always speak budonghua, but with a really strong accent.
Normally young people speaks very standard chinese, if you talk one to one, or if you speak in a office environment, you will have to use mandarin almost all day.
BUT HERE COMES THE REASON why, if I can, I won't choose SiChuan to study chinese. As I wrote, talking one to one you can always get a complete conversation in very correct and standard chinese, but when you are in a group of people, they ALWAYS will use Sichuan hua to chat. If you are with two friends, they will speak in sichuan hua. Then is kind of useless, when a chinese person talk, with our foreign face, they will use a simple and clear chinese (unless you show an exceptional speaking skill), but between them, they will use a natural language and that's the language we are suppose to catch. So when they are about to speak the "real natural street spoken chinese", they will use Sichuan Hua.
In the north mandarin is the local language, then it will be sure you will always hear mandarin. I were in Taiwan, and I think there is also a good place to learn chinese. Even the accent is not very correct, but people are always speaking in mandarin. At least, in the north of the island they do, as far as I know in the south they use more MinNan Hua.
well finally I got thousand of problems linking the account to my paypal, just myself bad typing or stuff like that.
Now my question is, can be a UnionPay card be linked to Paypal?
I want to pay my hosting account, when I try to pay it using paypal, there are some cards as an option, but UnionPay don't appear. Naturally I haven't linked any credit card to my paypal account, then I don't know how the linked cards appear. So, my question is, can I use the credit card to pay the hosting even if the unionpay doesn't appear as an option, just knowing that once linked the card should appear in the list?
ey! I love skate (I am not clear if the word is that... I mean... use that kind of shoes with four wheels) even I don't do it very good, but I wanna do it as a regular activity, weekly maybe, with people who know how to do it! have you get any nice place? I would like to buy a pair of skates and begin to practice again!
wowowow! thank you very much! soon I will go back to the bank to check how they register my name and ask the name of the branch and all that stuff... after the process get finished I will write again to tell how was that.
Thank you very much for all that info!
I'm one of those refuse have a credit card! I definitively don't want to have a credit card, I prefer use the money from my bank account and only count with what I have. But, now a days a credit card is really important if you wanna buy stuff from internet, such product or services.
However, a lot of things can be payed by PayPal, and I realized there is a way to connect a chinese bank account with paypal. I don't have so much experience using it, does somebody have experience using it?
I noticed almost everybody use a card to pay the metro entrance or the bus, but till now I don't have any idea how to get a card so I always have to give the two kuai... it is kind of problematic due I always have to search for change ~''~ so anyone has any idea about?
