If life hands you lemons grab some salt and a bottle of tequila. If you supply the tequila I'll be more than happy to stop by with the salt.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Beijing 2008

I love the Olympics,, watched as much as I could. Great games, great athletes, fantastic opening and closing ceremonies. I am really sad now it's over,, where to get my daily sports fix?! I even watched (yikes!!) synchronized swimming. Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt and Elena Isinbajeva gave us unforgettable moments. Apart from a few dark clouds hanging over the games (underage gymnasts, doping, ref-kicking cubans and more) I think I will take over now Samaranch is gone and say it was the best games ever. Kudos to Beijing and China.

I could have done without that awfull "You & Me" song though,, it would fit better into a mediocre Disney movie.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Golf in Kunming,, where?

I have been looking around on the site and found several golf clubs in the area around Kunming but everytime I get to their websites it says nothing about prices or greenfee ( I can only read the English pages). Can anyone give me some info about the clubs in the area? Can you get a membership for a reasonable price? Can you recommend some courses? I appreciate any info :)

Forums > Living in Kunming > I want to start from scratch :)

My name is Nick and I am planning to go to China after the summer to teach ESL. I have been looking over the different provinces and cities and I have narrowed it down to either Liaoning or Yunnan since I don't function too well in very hot areas :). Kunming sounds like a really great place to stay for a year or two but I have a small problem. Does anyone know any good links to jobsites for Kunming/Yunnan? I have found only 2 so far and they do not seem to be updated very often and only very few jobs are listed there.

I have a few offers to work in Beijing but I have been there for a couple of months before and tbh Beijing is a nice place to visit as a tourist but I wouldn't want to live there for real. If anyone could give me some good advice about Kunming it would be greatly appreciated.

A little about myself: I am 32 years old and a Danish national. I am a qualified teacher with English as specialty. I have taught 4 years in Denmark and lived 3 years in London. I recently split up with my girlfriend for 5 years and now I just feel like I need a change of scenary. Since I have been to China for all in all about 6 months before and really liked it I figure it could be interesting to go live there for a while.

King regards Nick

Since when did a 1 kilometre run become an 'endurance' test? During handball and football practice, our endurance training was rarely less than a 5 km run. Apart from that, many of my students talk enthusiastically about sports but when do they have time to train? My high school kids attend school 7 days a week, 6 of those from 8 morning to 11 at night (with 2x 1.5 hours breaks) and the little time left not spent at school is used for homework and what few extracurricular activities they have left, and they are always study related. At the start of this semester when a 1-on-1 student began 10th grade she finally had to give up on her piano lessons and her track and field (which she had enjoyed immensely) as well as her extra maths lessons because there's just no way for her to keep it up. Hell, even finding time for her private English lessons took 2 weeks of sorting out her schedule and intense planning. Before China begins complaining about the priorities of the youngsters, they ought to take a good, hard look at how the educational business is conducted and how teenagers are treated in this setting.

They have one of those here in Tengchong. They're noisy but people seem to enjoy it. The water wall projection is so-so but the laser/fountain thingy set to music looks very nice. I agree with Dazzer by the way that it it's a bit of an eye sore when the nozzles and the pipes protrude the water. Don't expect the movies to look spectacular though. When the novelty's worn off you find yourself struggling to figure out what's on 'screen'. The photo on top is definitely taken during one of the brighter moments.

Against capital punishment per definition here. Also, in China a bullet to the neck normally happens less than a month after the sentence and then that's it. These guys won't suffer, it will just be over. Personally I'd like them to spend life in a Chinese prison/work camp, every day like hell. Somehow seems more fitting.

30.000 a month for such a tiny place? Does The Box have 4-5 floors above it I'm not aware of included in that price? You could find cheaper storefronts in London's W2 no problem. The businesses ought to sit down together and all decide to move to another accessible area, sign cheaper 5 year leases and collectively raise their middle fingers to the greedy bastards at Wenhua Xiang.

Nice job allowing an insane murderer back into society so he could kill countless more people, eat their flesh and stack their eyeballs. That's what you get when you're focused on punishment and not rehabilitation, have nothing in place to do something about the mentally ill or some functioning psychiatric system able to determine if someone is fit to be released. Also, 4 YEARS to figure out who did this in a relatively small town where an insane loner with stacked human flesh on his property lives?? No one managed to tip off the police that, you know, just maybe they should go take a look at this guy's property?



Went there yesterday and it totally made my week. Nice decor and friendly staff and a real salad bar. Sadly we both wanted mexican food so I can't really say much about their other courses. The food was great but just a tad spicier would have improved the dish. The best thing was that we almost had the place to ourselves and we could have a quiet conversation without shouting, spitting Chinese people in the background. I realised how much I had missed that since coming here.


We went to Chicago Coffee a couple of days ago and it was a nice experience. The place is cozy with soft comfy chairs (I realized how much I have missed one since coming here) and they have a nice little collection of English language books in the corner consisting mainly of classics and travel litterature. I was looking forward to trying their advertized tortilla bar but it wasn't up and running that evening.

Instead we went for 2 12 inch pizzas -roast chicken and pepperoni- but we quickly realized that 1 would have been enough. Those things are heavy. I am mainly into Italian style pizza but Chicago's double layered pizzas are well worth a try. Their coffee seems to be a bit on the expensive side but people say good things about it and they have got a nice selection. I wouldn't mind dropping by again some day,, hopefully when they've got the tortilla thing going. English speaking staff btw.
