you're not 'Wanting to return to [your] home country before contract ends' anymore?
locals can get away with that kind of behaviour... they don't rely on visas and will likely not have to ask past employers for help in the future. They also often get treated as disposable so it's understandable I guess.

IF your employer extends your work visa they remain partly legally responsible for you and so most won't consider it.

Too many threds and discussions on here are hijacked and derailled just for some to express their ideas - 'Pissing contests' as I've heard them refered to. OK... if there is no down vote maybe we could have a 'block user' or 'ignore' button because I am sick of reading the same inane bullshit from a limited group of individuals who seem to feel that something gives them the right to force their personal ideas on others regardless of the OP, their post or the thread title.
As for the wider website, a more varied approach to articles would be nice. Personally I enjoy the user generated stuff such as Sean's recent article. Articles on travel, foods, and places of interest are always good to see but that's my personal opinion.

I've had a 'humanitarian' visa. AFAIK it's a similar to an L (tourist) visa rather than an extension of your work/resident's permit. I expect you'll need to pay for it and it might be for less than 30 days - they decided I only needed 14 days and there was nothing I could do or say to change their minds. Not sure what you mean about wanting to '...return home before the contract ends' because in the the last post you say you 'want to leave the job after [your] contract ends'. If I get your meaning you want to go home without informing your employer but then come back? is that right? if there's a genuine reason then you should just talk to your employer. If you leave them unable to cover your classes then of course you can expect them to cancel your visa immediately after you disappear. They can recommend that the PSB 'blacklists' you too... you would never get another Chinese visa anytime soon if they did that (5 years is the usual I think).

maybe add a Captcha step before posting in the forums. I wonder if much of the recent spam isn't from an automated source. is an IP ban also not possible?

Thanks Sean. A really interesting read - more relatable and less of a corporate sheen. Some lovely pictures in there too. We could all use a break from our phones sometimes but the 'always on' Wechat is quickly becoming a fact of everyday life in China, epecially for those in work. This was another little reminder that life is beautiful.

taxi drivers (ebike/motorbike/licensed/Didi) seem to hate the competition from these bikes and have been known to 'move' them or otherwise make them unusable. I've witnessed some shop owners moving the bikes from near their store front. I've also seen several local xiaoqu guards and city management officers piling them up recently. There were always quite a few within eyesight of my apartment but not any more... I now need to walk around to find one which negates the whole idea in my opinion. At least one of these companies have to fold soon.

a lovely place to stay with great views of Yulong xueshan (JadeDragon snow mountain) from the roof! Beautifully decorated and hosts that make you feel like family. A million miles better than most other places locally. I can't recommend this place enough.

thanks for all the good food and drinks over the past couple of years. i honestly didn't go there after some prices were almost doubled (such as the Coffee shake)but i will miss the place.
best of luck with whatever comes next!

i thought i'd give this place another try as my usual place was closed today. even though there is now more choice, i was not impressed by the menu. they do have an apparently good range of coffees for up to 80 kuai but even a basic latte is Y26 now. the drinks were OK but nothing special and certainly not worth the money. the place looked somehow cleaner too and was certainly busier! why have so many of the cafes in this area decided that it's fine to raise their prices by so much (in some cases almost double)? i doubt i'll be going back. the 2 stars are because it was just OK and they've obviously made some effort.

Kunming's best Mexican restaurant and a great place to entertain too. In fact, I can't think of many other places that could even compete with this level of class and quality! Prices are reasonable bearing in mind the price of ingredients and what you're getting. It is well decorated inside even if it's not 'authentic' Mexican enough for some. The outside patio is great for a few relaxing beers with friends (something i have tried and can thoroughly recommend). I've lost count of the times I've been to Cacao and I've never been disappointed. One star off because I would prefer a bit more spice!

not a bad selection of stuff and some of the staff obviously know their way around a bike. however, the 'special' prices for foreigners and the fact that some of the staff will use a big hammer to fix anything keeps me from going back. you could do better.
