    Sure, I can understand. Luckily my company arranged the visas for my family as well

    Not sure why when you ask advice that you wouldn't reply to questions as the visas for HK and China in your post were very relevant to where you would live. People don't mind helping but can get frustrated when people ignore them. The good thing is you did come back to update.

    Hey, Gruntfuk, what do you care about the man's visa and passport? He only asked about housing in Shenzhen. Who r u, the self-appointed chinese gestapo, aka, Communist Party PSB? Get a life and leave others be, if they are not affecting U. That's my opinion.

    I recently found this really neat popcorn place right next to CitySuper in IFC. Expensive but really nice stuff. I like the one with the nuts.
    Can we also order some beers from HopLeaf? Really nice beers.

    and then we can relax and watch...

    Gruntfuk is a pretty good nickname though.

    Yes China is very strict on certain food exports

    guess i could always log onto geoexpat.com...
    Or do some work... God forbid!
