Q: How Do You Spend Chinese New Year?

I took a month off! I was so tired from the stress of Beijing and decided to literally let myself rest for an entire month.

 

Half of the month I am going to travel to foreign countries. The other half will spend with my family. 

 

How about you? Are you staying in China or also going to travel? How long are your holidays gonna be? 

 

Btw, just for the info. How many days off can you take have in a year (paid and unpaid)? Also, could you add what type of work you are doing (fulltime/parttime) and in which industry (teaching, engineering, etc..)

 

I had a slight argue with my boss on this topic as I am taking too many days off. Eventually I won the battle and run to the airport haha

My wife & I spend CNY outside China. She hadn’t gone back to her home village for CNY for more than 10 years. This year we’re in Croatia. Previous years it’s been Mexico/Cuba, UK/Italy, Vietnam, Sri Lanka. 

 

I get 20 days paid holiday as well as Chinese public holidays. These were negotiated a few years ago. I took a small drop in salary for an increase in paid holidays. I have to take 7 days at CNY plus the public days. Rest of the year I work public holidays and take the days when I want them. 

 

I manage a small british owned sourcinf compsny & the British owner understands the need for holidays.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
