I've been in similar situations with female colleauges bar hopping in nice spots in various cities all over the world. You don't have to be in a sketchy part of town to run into some rather high spirited chaps. I just ask my female friend/s if they are uncomfortable and I'm ok with leaving. Quietly walk away but be aware if you are being followed etc. I've seen too many heroes ending up with their heads kicked in. Nothing cowardly about walking away, just using...
Education is booming biz here esp languages. I assume it's English you are teaching. I have expat colleauges who'se wives are teachers from the UK & the US who have found jobs easily either in the public or private education sectors.

Always nice to see the brothas banding together
If CYC and Iris are not good enuff. for you chaps..... maybe you coud give Rubinacci's services in Malmaison by the Hour Glass in Knightsbridge down in Orchard Road a try. If you are still around in mid-April, George Cleverly is offering their services for bespoke shoes at the Four Seasons. They are on an Asian tour with Seoul, Tokyo and HK I think.
