@mingdao: You ought to scroll back to the begining of this, and read everything because for someone asking people to help you with your problem (not theirs) you should be grateful of the help of these people, instead of biting their heads off.

Feel free to bite me.

@Greg.: Sorry 'Mate' I have both British and Canadian passports, and my wife is Chinese. At one time, we could cross the US border by waving one's driving license through the window (I once waved, successfully, an American Express card). Today, actually, since 9/11, the US (I mean the government) has a phobia of foreigners, and this is also reflected in the US/Chinese border - I could tell quite a few stories of discriminatory behavior in Canadia and US embassies, not to mention the Chinese PSB (but that goes without mention). ;-)

My advice is; Visit Asia whilst you have the opportunity.

@JJ: What a wonderful idea - what reward would you suggest. ;-)

@laotou: Oh my G*d, "... preferred status". I hope that Greg. will keep in touch.

To Chapter One: I'm sorry if this sounds like a destroyer of a good party but if the purchase of six bottles of beer is rewarded with another two - a total of eight? Is this your responsible way to ensure a safe evening?

Ref.; Camel Bar.
190 yuan/person, and 760 yuan for four. Now, that's what I call a special offer.

Elsewhere this would be an unbelievable picture, but in China ....

My focus in this article was; "controlling sources of pollution ...." Does this mean, slowing it down, diverting it to another lake, or some other useless idea. Will the authorities have real power to strongly penalize the corrupt polluters -- or are they relying on one billion yuan every year?

I would surely love to be an auditor on the project.

Although not a review, permit me to address 'dianjing' and 'Ouyang'.

Surely, it would be better to obtain the visa prior to coming to China. Is it probable that your friend's problem was his and not the school's?

Rating, anything, on this Website without a review is useless ... at best.

My personal experience of KUST is their proverbial dislike of Foreign Experts.

Hello Dima; Many will welcome your arrival as the new manager. I hope that you will provide the cook with some assistance during peak hours. Some will be unhappy with the three-week closure, but you might tell them to visit Dan Di Cafe for a similar menu, if only temporarily.

I'm bound to ask if there is more than one Vintage Cafe in Kunming because the previous review seems to refer to a cafe that my colleagues and I are familiar with. Additionally, rating a cafe that is less than perfect, e.g., glass mugs, one would wonder how 'Jared' would rate the Green Lake Hotel, for example.

Please reserve the '5' rating for the best place in town . . . unless, of course, you're writing an advertisement.

Hey 'bucko', you must be fair, this restaurant is better than any place on Wen Lin Jie which you rated higher. Expensive? Try Green Lake Hotel. Small portions? Try Mazagran. It's all relative.

Although this is one of my favourite restaurants in Kunming, I find it necessary to warn the management that having a fourth floor extension has taken things one step too far (actually, about 70 steps!).

In my opinion, by extending the business, both the hard working kitchen and waiting staff are unable to maintain the original food quality and level of service.

A recent visit presented us with a luke warm fruit/mutton curry that comprised many pieces of fat and gristle, and a half tandoori chicken that had two legs (?) and not much else -- this dish would satisfy three people last year.
