    Like in China, as a foreign guy I could go to the most upper-class seafood restaurant in town without reservation and dine on a 3 course meal. Have a constant flow of beer and tea and struggle to spend 60 Yuan, which is equivalent to £6 in English money. In contrast in England I would have to reserve a table, turn up in a suit and tie and squint when the bill arrives because it will be in the ballpark of £100.

    You can rent a top class hotel for 100 Yuan a night which is about £10 in English money. The equivalent hotel in England would be closer to £80 a night.

    For this reason, many people have decided to emigrate from Europe to South East Asia to live like a millionaire!

    You know, ancient China is a very great country. But now, IMO, I don't think so.

    That was done as response to Taiwan limiting the entry of legal Filipino workers. You reap what you sow. All we've done was respond, whether it was that debacle with Taiwan (which the government doesn't officially even recognizes LOL) or with mainland China (Scarborough Shoal; even Taiwan apparently makes the same claims too LOL).

    Do you like to cannibalize homeless people's faces? We don't need real zombies, damn it! ;)
