Where on this map would you move to in my situation?

No.2106626 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
1. Single, ~29 years old, male

2. Slightly under $800k net worth. $160k compensation remote software engineering job that I'm not that good at. Might be able to monkey branch to 180-250k soon.

3. I have a cat which makes nomading/getting into some places harder.

4. Let's say I'm also working on central/eastern time hours

Priority is to properly socialize, make friends, potentially find a partner

What's the grossest thing you've eaten on your travels? For me, it was 童子蛋 (tongzidan), also known as Virgin Boy Egg. In China, they hard-boil eggs in boy's urine (preferably 10 years old or younger), similar to how they prepare century eggs or tea eggs. I was disgusted, but had to try it because 童子蛋 is considered a culinary treat to the Chinese, and it is part of the local culture. Pic related, would not recommend.

Mid-Autumn Festival is on it's way. Have you gotten your mooncakes yet? They're a symbol of lunar appreciation.

Legend has it, in the ancient past, there was a hero named Hou Yi who was excellent at archery. His wife was Chang'e. One year, the ten suns rose in the sky together, causing great disaster to the people. Yi shot down nine of the suns and left only one to provide light. An immortal admired Yi and sent him the elixir of immortality. Yi did not want to leave Chang'e and be immortal without her, so he let Chang'e keep the elixir. However, Peng Meng, one of his apprentices, knew this secret. So, on the fifteenth of August in the Chinese lunisolar calendar, when Yi went hunting, Peng Meng broke into Yi's house and forced Chang'e to give the elixir to him. Chang'e refused to do so. Instead, she swallowed it and flew into the sky. Since she loved her husband and hoped to live nearby, she chose the moon for her residence. When Yi came back and learned what had happened, he felt so sad that he displayed the fruits and cakes Chang'e liked in the yard and gave sacrifices to his wife. People soon learned about these activities, and since they also were sympathetic to Chang'e they participated in these sacrifices with Yi.
