I just thought I would post to let people know about the WTA Tianjin Open, which is taking place from Oct 12 to Oct 18 (Qualifying starts Oct 10).
It's at the Tuanbo Tennis Centre, which is a bit out of the main city area to the south. There is more about the tournament and tickets here:
Tianjin..the most boring city in the world!!
is there anybody wants to have fun in real life
Hi all Catherine Gua I will send u private message. But for anyone interested the following information might be helpful. I know Charlotte is a bit far but I belive there is same company providing same service in ur area.
Thre is a company by the name My Gym in Isatan mall TEDA . They provide a service like Gym, music art and baking class for kids starting from 7 month. Plus they have free playing space when the kids are not attending class. The payment is fare in my opinion , esp when I compare it from TEDA international school. They ask me to pay 83,000¥ for a year for my 2&1/2 yrs old boy. With out transportation fee and no foreign teacher giving English lesson.
My Gym service is different from a normal school, it is more like an extra curricular activity . But a kid under 4 what else they need; I understand everyone has different preference but I choose this place for my kid. The coast for 60 class per year is 12,200¥. The advantage is u can attend any class any day or time u want it; the down side is u have to attend ur kid all the time. It is not like normal school, u can leave ur kid and go anywhere u want. Every class is for an hour with mini breaks in between.
The stuff are friendly and helpful . Hope u find this information helpful. Moreover I would love if u guys know other option to keep our kid entertain and meet up pls let me know.
Yes, more details...
The IST playgroup meets Wednesdays from 9-11 am. You would need to contact the school first. For example:
Announcing Tianjin LAN!
We are looking for more people to join our regular LAN party.
What is a LAN party? A party where everyone brings their computers together in one space to place games on a local area network.
We currently have four people and are looking for another four people to join us. You don't need a beefy PC and we even have a computer we can loan to someone each party.
Console games will be played some parties.
The day, time and frequency isn't currently decided. If you're interested please fill out the survey below so we can all decide on the best day of the week, time and games to play.
The location may change some days but will be regularly held in Hedong District 20 minutes from Binjiang Dao in a suitably large and comfortable space.
RSVP will be required by Facebook or e-mail every week to ensure space.
Facebook Group for RSVP: www.facebook.com/groups/1615567378696672/ (LAN is not scheduled yet)
Google Survey (VPN required) You will need to fill this out before attending.
Welcome to Tianjin I was wondering if people wanted to do a Chinese/English corner. It would be once a week for about an hour (possibly more). It would be an open discussion half the time in Chinese half the time in English for people that want to improve their language ability, and of course make new friends. Let me know if you interested.
