I have rarely had a two hour lunch. And not everyone lives in town and when we do go in we have things to do, other act like ' ladies that lunch'.
It is a bit shortsighted to think we all lead the same kind of life, or that everyone else fits into your model.

And your budget for time and money is what? Btw I hate mixian, before some other idiot chimes in. If I want a sandwich I don't need some ass of a judge telling me 'baad'.


No results found.


I found tomb sweeping to be a nice family day out. A branch, or several branches, of the family will visit the tomb and pay respects to the ancestors.

The tomb is cleared of weeds. Firecrackers. There is a small offering of food, wine, money (fake) etc. and some kowtowing. After that it becomes a family picnic, with my family.
All in all a pleasant time out. Not morbid, and very social.



Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.


Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.

Mae culpa

I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.

I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.

Lots of nice big brand performance bikes but not good for those of us on a budget.
