Anyone out there? Especially for Beijing region.
Oh well, seems like I am alone here...
asking a bit too much there mate
I'm in Shanghai, despite my username, if that helps. Anyone else in Shanghai?
Cheers mate, I am a Malaysian working in Beijing at the moment. The only other Spurs I know are mostly visting Malaysian Spurs...
Get a flight down to Hong Kong and join us in Delaney's for one of the big games.
I was working in Shenzhen a summer ago and there was a Spurs fan on here living there. Cant remember his username though
That was me my friend, but I'm back in the UK now
I'm moving to ShenZhen at the end of the month.
What are you doing there?
We're having a few production related issues with our factories out there and so I've been given the task of solving them.
interesting, how's your mandarin?
Sketchy at best, but good enough to get by and I am up to scratch on a lot of the technical Chinese related to racquet production. For the rest I guess I just find a woman and go from there.
I'm moving to Taiyuan in August - guess I'll be the only Spurs fan there!
Try and get there for the end of July and make a trip to Beijing for the Asia Cup, followed by a weekend in Hong Kong for the match here - the perfect introduction to Greater China. Check out the Spurs in Hong Kong thread for details.
I would love to, but packing up my whole life in England and moving out to China doesn't give me much room for manoeuvre!
Bet we don't play in Beijing again for ages...typical :evil:
Spurs haven't been to HK for about 15 years, so it'll be a while before they're back after this visit.

• In China the issue of ‘losing face’ is taken very seriously. This
can be defined as status, ego or self-respect. This can be seen as
any situation that would bring shame on or reflect badly on an

conflict arises, negotiating an outcome that benefits both parties
is preferable to a direct confrontation.
