    Harbin is a pussy lolly scramble but is a little dangerous (close to Russia).

    Or, Hong Kong! See you there, next year maybe!

    I don't even know where Shenyang is. Can't be that great if I never heard of it.
    Tianjin? Really?
    Yeah everyone knows Hainan is the nicest place in China, but there's like 2 jobs there.

    Yeah, I fucking applied to jobs in Hong Kong and Thailand a few other countries. No dice.

    Yeah HK jobs are mostly kids or get through an overseas agency. Usually need a teaching certificate, like TESOL.

    Damn, I thought Thailand still had ESL jobs, been kinda rolling around it around as a backup plan.

    Did you apply in person while u were there, or was this online? Shit not working out online is pretty common these days.

    Yeah, HK is competitive. They didn't like my CV I guess compared to other blokes.

    Thailand has jobs. But a lot of them are really really shitty. As in long hours + shitty pay + short vacations.

    I think the teaching there is pretty bad, a lot of cowboy operations.

    Actually, the jobs seems better in Vietnam than Thailand.

    I think I also applied there, but no luck.

    I think the Gods are conspiring to keep me in China.

    Too impersonal. People get lax about responding. Every ESL job I've gotten besides my first has been face to face. My first started at 4000/m. Pretty soon I was making more money from PT. I worked my way up to 5500 before I got smart and quit for another job at 10k+. RB remembers that place...

    If they see what you can do and like it, that's usually enough. Online they can't really tell, so they don't get too excited about you. Even with an outstanding resume in front of them, since a lot of those are BS.

    yeah well, if i get serious about thailand i guess i'll have to fly out there for an extended vacation.

    but a lot of teachers have left because of poor working conditions.

    beautiful place to live, but esl jobs are not that great.

    read an article on ajarn.com "thailand no longer a place to teach".

    i might fucking go to the middle east to visit my arab brothers for a coupla years to recuperate my losses from shitty wages the past couple of years here.

    coz they got .... OIL money.

    praise be to allah and splendini.

    I've lived in the Middle East. You're not gonna free gorgeous women of loose morals there, unless they're whores.

    ESL money is good in Saudi and Dubai and such from what I understand, but they have stringent qualifications and want to see a degree in education generally.

    I was being good and using every ounce of restraint in my body to keep myself from making jokes about his Ladyboy whilst engaged in a discussion about *Thailand*... But now that you've gone and done it things might well fly off the handle again, tnks. elephant

    yeah, thailand is a strange place.

    you can't take a fucking stroll on the beach without whores throwing themselves at you every 5 minutes. by the end of the 4 days, i was starting to feel sick of girls.

    what's up with the 7 feet tall ladyboys? can someone fucking explain this to me?

    the average thai guy is 5 foot 2 for god fucking christ's sake.

    nothing in this world makes any fucking sense to me anymore.

    Visa trapped or money trapped?

    Money trapped there's not much you can do except start squirreling away for your eventual escape.

    Visa trap, there are solutions. (involving money of course)

    Yeah I noticed this phenomenon in Flipperines too, ladyboys a foot and half taller than the locals.

    I watched BBC documentary about Brits going for Ladyboys in thailand. It seems like brits are their main source of customers.

    Pretty disgusting. These ladyboys take all kinds of hormones to develop their breasts and make their skin hairless, ravaging their own health. Not to mention all the STDs they're exposed to.

    Still it brings it a hell of a lot of income back to their family in the village that they wouldn't have otherwise.

    No, I'm exaggerating.

    I tried to make a move, but I didn't get a job I liked.

    I've been sending CV's all over the place. Hungary, France.

    Not the Mideast yet because I'm worried that I won't tolerate that excessive heat really well. Had a skype interview for a job in Jeddah but backed off.

    So I'll stick around for a while and try to decide what to do next.

    And try to stay out of trouble with the men in blue.

    Remmy liked Thailand from what I remember.

    Maybe he is happily shacked up with a nice lboy, as we speak.

    I might just do that, save up a bundle and just book to Thailand on tourist visa and see what I can pin down.

    I know a french guy who married a Thai girl, and he strongly suggests I go for one too. Plus he offered to help set me up if I go there.

    So I'm thinking about it...

    If that doesn't work, I can just skip over the Philippines where visas are no problem, but making money is a bitch. Or come back to China like I did last time.

    Or just stay here. Fk it. My job is stable and I have this lifestyle down to a science. Why take a huge risk when I'm flying without a net?

    Like I said, there's a lot of bad comments on ajarn forum about Thailand. The jobs. But people love living there generally.

    If your job is ok in Beijing, just stick around. Don't change unless you have to.

    Me, I have to make a move.

    Well sure if it's 40 teaching hours a week or some shit, I'm not interested.

    But here... man, I'm only teaching 25 hours but it's all I can handle. Mainly because most of my work are these specialized VIPs that I have to prepare endlessly for because I'm touted as a premium service. Plus I'm under pressure to create awesome material for my normal adult classes. Almost all the material I teach now is written BY ME. That's a fuck of a lot work. I'm prepping a good ten hours a week or more.

    Roting through a standardized textbook with Thai kids for 30 hours sounds like a breeze.

    Housing I don't know, but I'm in the hutongs here and had to lay out a basin for the rainwater leaking through my roof yesterday.

    maybe teaching kids is easier. i don't know.

    it doesn't hurt to look at job postings and send out CVs.

    it seems a bit ridiculous to travel to a country just to apply for a job. if an employer in thailand is interested, they should be able to interview you on skype.

    I've fucking hit rock bottom.

    Shitty job.

    Fucking girls dumping me and rejecting me.

    Police threats looming.

    A fucking piano hanging over my head by a string.

    Splendini is down, but not out, mothafuckas.

    Or is he?
