RE: Vaping in China
I've done the barefoot through the winter thing - when i was either unemployed or self-employed - over here i'm a teacher, and that 'requires' a certain 'dress code' that i don't have the linguistic ability to manoeuvre around 30

You get strange looks if tis raining and you're wearing a Goretex coat but not carrying an umbrella LoL Also random folk will just come up and say "Hello" (possibly the only English they know) and then giggle at me returning the greeting, or ask for a selfie with me - just because i'm the 'Foreign Monkey' - which is a kinda back handed 'celebrity' status 50

RE: Vaping in China
Well today it finally happened!
Been here for over 4 months and i spied the rarest of creatures in Xianning today - the lesser spotted Chinese vaper! 50
He was walking along, and vaping almost in stealth mode, which made it difficult to be sure. Then he spotted the plume emerging from my VG backed FX exhale, and shyly smiled, raised his ego with CE4 type clearo and hurried on, before i could grab a selfie with him - darn LoL Thumbs Up

RE: Vaping in China
Apparently i'm a minor 'trend' on weibo - kinda Chinese FB. The local newspaper are running a story on the 'Life of a Foreign Teacher' - had to agree for college publicity (in me contract Tongue ) so had a photographer trailing me for a couple of days - and by 'coincidence' the Aviation students (future flight crew etc) happened to turn up to their last lesson in full uniform 30

İmage

İmage

At the end of the class i got rushed by students wanting selfies taken with the 'Foreign Monkey' in their uniforms - and the photographer sneaked a pic - very 'meta' LoL

İmage

Still haven't seen the article - and these pics were only shared with me by another student who'd seen them on Weibo Blush

Lovin' these updates, didn't know how many I'd missed. Cool

Don't sweat over the ethics of the FX. Manufacturing in China and selling at non-China prices is a dirty trick. They deserve to lose all their sales to the factories that make them. Smiling
