Redjon, maybe you should ask when is last time something was real. Well, thats slightly exaggerated.

Bad food oil. Thats 6 months ago on a brief visit to Kunming, havent been there since. Probably the delicacy called "gutter oil", maybe you are familliar how many zillions of it was pumped on market. Thought it was too much msg but was informed that gutter oil/fake oil will make u feel uncomfortable in the throat.

After all food scandals over last 10 years - and those are only the ones made/come out public - hey, what the hell do u expect. Get real.

Anyway, lets sum it up with Chinese Baidu. Theres a long analysis on the issue. In brief, there is an ongoing debate to whether fake eggs do exist, or not, but at least the egg shell should be real. While fake rice for consumption seems to be an urban legend, the egg is more debated. And the egg yolks coloured by chemicals was real, a few years back. I think enough here said on the eggs now, as its impossible to take side without more inside knowledge.假鸡蛋

Same Beijing Lu junction cops fined me for spitting on the street. Fine 50 yuan also. Gave a hundred and they had no change, and while waiting for change, a huge curious crowd showed up. :) Singapore? No, Kunming. Apparently it depens on "where" you spit. This was a sensitive area, and didnt know it.

"do we attack the donald and say he is an idiot"

A lot. And major idiots in Brussels were doing it today, surprisingly without rioting though, at least yet. Here we have a city, Brussels, under constant security threat, considered a Mecca of growing extremism, and having had terror attacks, and what do the idiots do, heh, protest against Trump! :D

Kunmings market strategy has been clean air, and hence one can be sceptical over those measures. Add to that the culture of avoiding saying the truth, the phenomenon of faking everything, overall enthusiasm in managing anything more than 6 months, and what is the apparatus used anyway. These measures have been faked elsewhere, and the faking has been acknowledged by both state and media, hence a suspicion will not be "harmful rumor" or will it?

And John Blofeld studied Zen on Kunmings Western Hills as a pupil of Chinas most famous monk Hsu Yun, in 1940's. So theres a link there, to see what it was like when China was still China, be it Kunming or Beijing. As mentionesd, old books worth a read what it did look like, just to get perspective. Sure in modern days to drive around with an ox-cart may not be most convenient, but to demolish almost all roots to past, is of course another story.



One of The Best bakeries in Asia. (note: ASIA)

Oh,....the ciabatta with cheese. Theres so much cheese on the bread, (and enough butter too), that you almost feel guilty being treated with it for 26 yuan. Its like buying a cheese with some bread.

Excellent place! Looking back at Yunnan, its like a miracle something has succeeded like Bakery 88.

Thank You.
