@Alien, Sometimes am able to get into Yahoo using Bing. I know other people also having same problem. Last night i actually got into GoogleHK and read some of my emails using Bing. Froze up after 5 minutes. Great firewall must have had a small hole.

ExpressVPN did not seem compatible with my internet service. Hard connecting and then often froze my internet. Express was no help and said could not be their problem, but after switching back to my old provider problems went away and no problems since.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Needed documents to apply for a Marriage Visa

Just renewed my marriage resident permit 2 weeks ago. Only need health exam booklet if you are over 60 and applying for a 2 or 3 year permit. 1 change is your spouse now needs to write the invite application for visiting relatives letter.


No results found.


Insulation, how about replacing the entire walls of single pane glass windows with smaller insulated double pane ones. Would make homes cooler in summer, warmer in winter and would allow people to actually sleep at night without all the noise.

What a joke, maybe someone should tell police about this crack down. For the last several weeks going north on 3rd ring road just past Bejing road the vendors have had all but 1 lane filled at the intersection during the evening. Bicycle lanes and even more often 1-2 traffic lanes are being used for parking. Getting more dangerous riding my bicycle every day.



Metro has many things i cannot find other places, but i still find it a frustrating place to shop sometimes. Seem to frequently be out of things. For example their was very little fresh meat to choose from and actually they were out of many things and i was their just after lunch. They had no loaves of toasting bread and could not tell my wife when they would be getting more in. In looking at the fresh date on Hormel ham it had expired in September. However for first time i was able to shop all the aisles. Not filled with merchandise to be stocked or fork lifts.


Ate lunch today. Server was attentive. Food was good but a little slow in coming. Looking forward to eating dinner some evening and trying salad bar i have heard so much about.


To all those expecting an authentic Irish Pub come on we are after all living in China. I have eaten there several times and the burger is still the best in Kunming in my opinion. Staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. Place is not perfect but what is in CHina. Owners have been wonderful in opening up early for special events like the US Super Bowl.


Went for Pizza special tonight. Had the Barbeque chicken and it was very good. Also enjoyed an exceptionally large order of French Fries. Everything was good tonight and owners where not there.


Wonderful place. Evening price is 88rmb which includes large salad buffet and they bring out skewers of the best beef i have had in China, also chicken, pork, sausages, goose, corn on cob to your table. They seem to slow down after 8 but before that constantly waiters bringing fresh meat and cut it onto your plate. Have eaten there 5 times in past 2 months and has always been excellent food and even better have never left with any stomach ills.
