There is a fast train leaving the South RR station at 7:53AM. Subway Line 1 leaves the South Ring Road Station at 6:46AM. This train arrives at Chunrong Station at 7:20AM. It seems one must change trains there to the branch line that goes to the South RR Station. Will there be a train from Chunrong Station to the S. RR Station that will get me there in time to make the 7:53 train (considering the cops are going to want to check my bags etc.)? Have been online for about 2 hours & can't find an answer. If anybody knows, please advise (yeah, I can guess too, but I'm not interested in guesses).

Don't know about the train to Shanghai, but the one between here and Guangzhou (8 hours) had quite good luncheon boxes sold from a trolley - I had one and actually enjoyed it, something that has never happened to me with the crap similarly brought around to second-class sleepers on the ordinary train (24 hours). But I didn't check out the dining car.

The common sense needs to change, about a lot of things in a lot of places among a lot of people.
No objection to the street food in Singapore.

Suggest the drinking is related to difficulties of adaptations to, and even of any clear understanding of, rapid socio-cultural change coming from the outside and the denigration of local culture involved, both in objective terms - insecure sense of identities, commoditization, new irrelevance of traditional cultural understandings, etc. Doesn't exactly strike me as mysterious. Religion, including 'new' religion, can play a part in this, either aggressively or defensively, but usually a bit ambiguously, a bit of both.

Plenty of articles about problems caused by hydropower. 'Cleaner', well, maybe, but clearly not good enough in the long run, which is going to require further development of solar, geothermal, wind, etc. It's going to be expensive in terms of money, but that's where the money has to be put in. In the meantime, maybe you've got a point, but the meantime isn't going to last all that long, and it's probably not a good idea to move too many people around, silt up dams, ruin fisheries, risk dam collapses in earthquake-prone areas and all the rest...no, I don't know a lot about this stuff, and burning fossil fuels, including natural gas, is obviously lousy, and nuclear power is really good and clean and safe until it isn't (Japan, not long ago)...okay, I'm no expert.

As near as I can remember, they haven't had anything new on their menu in 13 years. Full meal consists of chicken steak, with or without mushroom sauce.
Sandwiches are okay. Service is generally poor, and they seem to be understaffed.

Not quite what you'd call a jumping place, but not bad at all for rather standard US-type meals, not overly expensive, and with a really good salad bar that's cheap, or free with most dinner dishes after 5:30PM. You can get a bottle of beer or even wine if you really want to, but I've never seen anybody do it - maybe that's just to take out. Chinese Christian run, and they hire people with physical disadvantages, who are pleasant and helpful. Frequented by foreign (mostly North American) Christians and Chinese Christians - was started by a Canadian couple associated with Bless China (previously, Project Grace), who are no longer here, but no religious pressure or any of that. Steaks are nothing special, and I avoid the Korean dishes, which I've had a few times but which did not impress me.

As a shop and bakery, it's very good bread at reasonable prices, of various kinds (Y18 for a good multigrain loaf that certainly weighs well over a pound. Other stuff too, like granola and oatmeal that is local, as well as imported things, including American cornflakes and so forth, which some people seem to require.

Great location, nice seating area outside within the temple compound and with plenty of space for gigs, etc., on afternoons. Good steak, good crowds, bbq and buffet both good. .

Large portions, seriously so with the pizza, which is Brooklyn/American style, I guess. Convivial, conversational, good place to drink with good folks on both sides of the bar, especially after about 9PM.
