Forums > Living in Kunming > halloween events for kids?

There is about 85 kids signed up to trick-or-treat at Hu Pan Zhi Meng Xiaoqu on Friday. It starts at 6:30 at Kunming International Academy. Children will be trick-or-treating at the homes of expats who signed up to be willing to give out candy.

Forums > Travel Yunnan > KMG to Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City

I am in the beginning stages of planning a trip during Christmas from Kunming to Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh. Have any of you ever done this? What is the cost of a train from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh? What can I expect to spend on hotels? What are some things to do and see in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh?

I am looking at driving my car from KMG to Hekou (leaving the car at the house of someone I know) then crossing the border and taking the train to Hanoi. Spend a few days in Hanoi and then take a train to Ho Chi Minh. I would appreciate any thoughts or feedback.

I think you have to be up a little. We are on the 6th floor, and I easily felt it. My daughter was outside, and she felt nothing. We are down south near Dianchi Rd.

I just felt an earthquake at 4:31pm on Sunday 3 August. Did you guys feel it? I was lying on the bed watching a show when the bed began to sway. I looked in the hall where I have a hanging light, and it was also swaying.

@Encrypted "Healthiest in the world" please give me a break. I won't argue with you that BK is unhealthy because it is, but it isn't any less unhealthy as smoking 2 packs of cigarettes a day while eating pieces of pig fat swimming in pig lard. China has one of the highest rates of heart disease in the world, and it has nothing at all to do with BK.

As I consider the increase of diabetes in China there is only one clear reason. If fast food was the culprit, the USA would certainly have more than 11.6% of its population diagnosed with diabetes. More and more Chinese are eating KFC, Pizza Hut, and McDonalds; however, the amount of people consuming food from these establishments is still a very small percent compared to the entire population. Therefore, you can probably blame some of the obesity problem on these joints; however, you can't blame the rapid increase of diabetes on them.

Instead, it is clear to me that alcohol a tobacco use is the clear reason there has been a rapid increase of diabetes in China. China has more smokers than any other country in the world—by a long shot. Americans eat way more fast food than Chinese, but tobacco in the USA is a fragment of what is used in China. Unlike those who consume fast food in China, citizens from all socioeconomic statuses smoke in China. Smoking is the common link.

After my last post, I was able to talk with one of the owners, and he bent over backwards to make things right. In the end, I was able to get my draft beer special. Also, there was a new menu with new items. My wife had the fried chicken bites, and I had the Mexican cheeseburger. Both were excellent. Kudos for the food and great ownership.

My wife and I have been a to Magiano's twice in the past few months, and we have been super pleased both times.

Last night, we ordered pizza (it came with freshly graded parmesan cheese), pasta, & a risotto dish. All three were excellent. Besides great food, we were served freshly baked bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for free. To top it off, the owner brought us a small piece of American ribeye to taste for free.

The wait staff was very attentive, and every time my water glass was empty, they were over to our table in just a few seconds to fill it.

We were able to eat for a little more than 200rmb. This might sound expensive to some; however, I thought it was a great deal considering we got bread and three dishes. We will certainly be giving them our business again.

I am not familiar with Hongshan Dong Lu. What area of town is this, and what is it near.

My wife and I would love to come try your restaurant.
