Residence Registration: My Experience

Posted on June 28, 2008 at 11:30am 5 Comments

I recently went through the process of registering my residence.

In my case (Gangxia area) it was pretty simple.

WARNING: This was the procedure in my area. Yours may differ. Taking along a Chinese-speaking friend is advised. You may also want to be prepared to return home for something not on this list.

1. Ask your building management which police station to go to. It shouldn't be too far beyond walking distance, since it's the station for your… Continue

Posted on April 21, 2008 at 11:17am 0 Comments

Where has all that COWBOY'S gone?

Posted on April 5, 2008 at 2:40pm 6 Comments

Yes, it is my sad duty to report the impending closure of what has become my favorite restaurant in Shenzhen.

Cowboy's Coffee and the Buffalo Grill will be closing in "1 week, 2 weeks, 3 weeks" according to the owner.

Already, some of our favorites (that MILKSHAKE!) are off the menu. When they run out of veg patties, no more veg burgers.

So get in there and get a taste of the old west while you can. And bring your friends, to help some nice people reduce their… Continue
