I am from China,I have a comfortable life with parents' help. but I am in love with a man at Rochester, and we are engage, I want to move to there with him. How my life willl be changed, and how much I need to live a same life as I live at China.

At China when I go shopping for dinner, I do not have to buy the cheapest in the market.
every weekend, I can have a nice dinner at some asian restaurants.
every month, I can buy some nice clothes from "Express" "Only" ect. and some other nice lady's stuff.
I can go travel at countries around home once in two years in 10 days.
I can go swimming at a nice clean swimming pool at summer.
occasionally can go to theater(like once in two weeks)
go to a concert once a while.

that is the life I have at China, I do not know if I want the same type of life at Rochester? How can I have the life I list above?

You can do all of that here, with the exception of the Asian restaurants. There are a few decent Asian restaurants here, but coming from China I'm going to assume that they won't be anywhere as good.

King and I on E. Henrietta is one of the best in Rochester, and it's a Thai-themed place. We used to take folks there from out of town if they were in the mood for Asian.

I know someone who has married a woman from China and his suggestions is the Cantonese House on Winton Rd. They are Chinese owned and have a Chinese-only menu that will be food familiar from home (not Americanized Chinese).

Also, I know there is an Asian Market at Winton and South Goodman, as well as an Asian-owned fish vendor at the Public Market. Churi's in Irondequoit is authentic Thai (rumor is she is the only actual Thailand born Thai chef in Rochester) and delicious. Here is another place I've never been to, but looks promising...Henrietta Asian market: Live seafood | democratandchronicle.com | Democrat and Chronicle

It's hard to answer your questions about cost without knowing about how much your income here will be and how much you will be able to budget for the kinds of things you've listed. And also it's difficult without knowing how much such things cost for you in China. Could you either give us an idea of how much you will have to spend on things here, or how much these things cost where you are now? If you can give the approximate cost of clothing, food, entertainment, travel, etc. where you are (either in your currency or in dollars, I can convert it if necessary) we can try to give you more specific advice. :-)

Just to give you a general idea now, gas is about $2.75 per gallon here (18.75 yuan.) Dinner in an Asian restaurant might cost about $30-$40 for two people (205-273 yuan)--not including alcoholic drinks. Theater tickets vary but might cost about $50 each locally-- 342 yuan--you would spend much more in New York City (about $100 each or 683 yuan.) Clothing is so varied that it would probably be better if you told us how much you would spend on, say, a dress to wear to work, and we could tell you how much such a thing might cost here.

I hope this helps a little!
