The staples in China are very cheap and I've been cooking more of my own food.
Now that I'm retired I have plenty of time to do just that.
This winter has been very cold for southern China though. My wife and brother in law will attest to that.
There is no central heating in Guilin, it's too far south.
So we keep the bedroom and den warm with electric radiator heaters but the kitchen is like a walk in refrigerator.
Not much fun to do a lot of experimenting in. But the weather is bound to get warmer.
It can't happen soon enough for me though.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Thank you. No one can change any country. I always try to emphasize that just because there are so ...

In China, scammers and thieves target anyone, regardless of nationality. Many Chinese have been cheated and targeted too. You are right that foreigners are considered "rich" so are usually targeted as well.
I also think we are all the same inside. There are good and bad people everywhere.
