Syifa Adriana : Kevin, I love your apartment! That actually looks very cozy and homy, especially the bed! You know how hard the bed in China is hahaha. Something about your genuine personality that always keeps me coming back to your channel. I, too live in China, have a full time job, lived nomadic life prior to that and try to post Youtube videos weekly. I can relate so much to your latest video "How I Make Money Travel Abroad." Daily vlogs would be lovely! Keep it up, Kev!

snarkyguy : Actually that apartment is pretty dope.

Mamahuhu : Pretty cozy.

Mark Harrison : Ahhh this makes me miss Shanghai! Nice place!

Helsic en China : I pay 1500 for a 3 room apartment in Chengdu! wow I'm stunned by the difference in price! it's incredible how expensive Shanghai is!

Victoria Roth : I love to see more of your daily life please.👍👍👍

Wayne Matthews : Glad to see you starting to vlog again you can post anything you want. You are very correct about living below your means that is why most people in the US have nothing and live from paycheck to paycheck. It is much more comfortable to live below your income and have a cushion if you need it helps when you are getting ready to retire also........

Zoey Amgalan : Do more daily vlogs, please!

travelbug : A day in your life video :)

Spooder Brood : Yeah do daily vlogs!

j400wel : Videos of local sights and scenery along with food would be good.You have money yet you live simple and that is the mark of a good caring person.Keep it up.

The Wandering Rey : That bathroom though... you can shit and shower at the same time. SAVES WATER!

Peter Hok : I wanna see how you go to buy food by walking from your apartment to the closest market.

Jonathan Alm : I'm doing my master's thesis in Shuzhou and will probably visit Shanghai a few times. So if you could make some videos about what you enjoy doing in Shanghai (and other areas around ofc) that'd be cool! :)

susan lv : I like your positive lifestyle

Shawn Dennstedt : "A poverty of desire." I'm totally stealing that. Great attitude bro, keep it up.

Nicole C : Oh wow. I live in Taiwan, and I thought my studio apartment was small lol. Living in a small space is good for me because I used to hoard a lot of things in my bedroom when I lived in the US. I've managed to significantly keep my level of accumulated junk down. My apartment is also in an ideal location: it's around the corner from 2 busy streets that's full of great food options and everything I need (like groceries, pharmacy, medical clinics, etc). and it's a 15min walk from work. I also get free lunch at my job (which is a good thing because I eat a lot lol), so I can save a lot of money in a month if I'm not traveling/doing a lot of outings.

Steve the pirate : That bathroom man i never seen anything like it lol !

LaurasAdventures : Hello Monkey! Lol .... I want to see a “normal work day in shanghai!” Type of vlog or something.

It annoys me : That place would have been 200 USD in 2012.
