China here I come

China here I come

I am with you Mike. I have no choice but to jump for China and hope I can land a job with accommodation provided. I will also lose 9500 baht deposit because the condo owner won't acknowledge the flood as a legitimate reason to vacate - in other words easy money for them. I asked the British embassy for advice about this and you've guessed it - just a list of solicitors - as if I could afford one. But it is better than trying to pay December and January rent and another visa run - whereby I don't even know if I'll get back in the country! It is a very frustrating and stressful time where I should be easily able to live comfortably here but am now lunching on cheap pastries from 7-11 - and I came here to better my chances of work rather than languish on the dole at home. I wish I had chanced the EU now; if anything it would have got rid of the constant need and uncertainty of visa runs.
