There's also a truck/van hailing app now called 货拉拉. It works just like Didi/Uber, but you can use it to hire anything from a minivan to a mid-sized truck.

They'll usually include some basic lifting, and are generally happy to negotiate to hire another person or two when there's more work involved.

What vicar is saying was actually correct, but that was in the past, and it was only for foreign experts (most teachers), not for people on the old work permits (people working in most other industries).

The wording of the law was that foreign experts could do other work for other organizations as long as the original employer gave permission, and it was all properly contracted and taxed.

The idea was that universities and research institutions were going through a lot of trouble to bring in foreign experts, and other institutions could make use of their expertise. These rules were written back in the early days of the reform and opening, so picture university teachers providing tutoring and expertise to the local government bureaus and state-owned factories.

Now the two types of permits are folded into one, and I'm pretty sure that rule is gone now.

It was still on the books about a decade ago when I was looking to contract out a large editing project, but the tax authorities had no idea where to even begin documenting it. It seemed no one was taking advantage of that rule.

According to the law, you are only allowed to work at one job, and technically only one location. Authorities will usually let the one location thing slide if you are mainly working in the city where your permit is based.

The one company thing is a bit more of a hassle. Theoretically, you can set up your own company and work for other companies as a consultant, but I don't think this flies for teaching, due to certification requirements and whatnot.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Dog Friendly Parks?

The inner part of Green Lake is actually closed to dogs, as are most parks with gates.

Open parks which aren't divided from the surrounding streets are generally open to dogs.

The biggest dog-lover park in Kunming though is Jiaoye Gongyuan, which is next to the Bamboo Temple. It's a very big park, with a lot of surrounding forest, and totally open to dogs (lots of people bring them). The downsides are that you'll probably need a car to get there, and I believe there's an entrance fee.

I was wondering about the alkaline batteries too. They recently removed all the trash cans with battery receptacles in my neighborhood. Based on the statement Dan quoted, sounds like they simply gave up. They were probably just dumping them in the landfill anyway.

"A more serious picker who spends most of the day searching for scrap could make more than ten yuan per day"

This is why, when I'm doing spring cleaning or otherwise getting rid of a lot of scrap, I just give it to them for free. My neighbors think I'm crazy.

AlexKMG: It's probably included in your wuguan fee. A lot of neighborhoods don't bother giving residents an itemized list, but if you ever see one, you'll see it's divvied up into things like grounds maintenance, elevator inspection fee, security, waste removal and whatnot.

@Anonymous Coward:

Of course it makes perfect sense that the city is mobilizing the entire paichusuo network and encouraging a few million people to register their bikes just so they can keep tabs on your visa situation. It's not like they don't already have that information sitting in a file at your neighborhood paichusuo where you have to register...

I heard they revamped the burgers so I went there for one last night. Had the blue cheese burger. Total mess, cheese and carmelized onions dripping all over the place. It was awesome.
