I have a feeling that the random use of UPpeRcaSe and numbers is to slip past the spam blocking software which will look for key words.
I think if you phoned any of these numbers you would get through to a nice lady who will voodoo away all your problems for a fee.

Thanks for the big up, but I am not sure I deserve it.

You are right, most decent employers have moved over to Skype or phone interviews now anyway. Unless they are recruiting locally.

There is also the discretion of the Judge on whether or not to award court costs.

If legally the Judge has to find for the plaintiff (person who brings the case), because of a legal reason, but the Judge feels that the plaintiff bears some blame/responsibility (or if the plaintiff offends the judge) then judge can decide not to award court costs. This has happened in David and Goliath cases, or when there is vexatious litigation (court case was only started to cause trouble for the defendant).


No results found.


In my country, you don't need a licence as such (to sell most products). But you are regulated, which amounts to the same thing.

At the very least you must be a registered trader, pay tax, VAT, have insurance, and if you employ people the regulations get more complicated. There are very few exceptions to this, garage sales and church fundraisers being two of them.

And Merry Xmas everyone, even if that isn't PC anymore.

I read, "anyone caught selling or using "counterfeit" spray snow products will be investigated for legal liability and possibly held criminally responsible", slightly differently.

My read.
This stuff can damage property, especially clothes and some paintwork. If you sell or use the stuff you can be held responsible for criminal damage. Complaints of this sort will be investigated.



Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.


Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.

Mae culpa

I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.

I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.

Lots of nice big brand performance bikes but not good for those of us on a budget.
