Forums > Living in Kunming > Vegan/Vegeratian Social Problem (in China)

Just tell everyone ahead of time. Worst case scenario, eat before you go out. Vegetarian and even vegan is now a small fad in China so you shouldn't have too many problems. If your significant other or friends are giving you problems then it might be time to find new friends.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Android 5.0 Don't Do It

Apparently the firewall is expanding as usual. This week there was a major CDN(Content Deliverty Network) stating that several of its customers have experienced problems. Customers include major electronic brands too.

On my Nexus 10 the biggest problem I have is with is auto brightness not working. It will randomly "flash" very brightly when turning on or off the display.

On the Nexus Player, which comes with 5.0, the only problem I've had is with Netflix. Had to re-install it.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Android 5.0 Don't Do It

I installed it on a nexus 10 without any problems. Beyond the new icons being a tad confusing, and notifications being a pain on large tablets.

What device are you running? Any apps or updates installed outside of the google play store before the update to lollypop?

What's sad is that the protests in Hong Kong were already fading quite fast. It's almost as if they live in backwards land and want to agitate the protesters so it continues.

If the protesters weren't attacked, and the police didn't beat the guy the protests probably would have lost steam within a week. At least until the next holiday when people don't have to work.

Yeah, the water used for plants and streets is supposed to be the grey water from sewage.

Also in your neighborhood they are only supposed to use grey water or sewage for watering. That's why it always smells so bad.

Err.. feel much more calm if they never smoked. Smoking provides a calm feeling, but it's probably the reason they feel so anxious in the first place.

I'll admit, I skipped most of the posting... But I thought smoking provided a "false" calming effect. In that the person feels much more anxious because they are addicted to nicotine. They would feel much less calm if they had never started smoking in the first place.

I guess you'll get a nice view of all the empty new buildings, and the pedestrians getting ran over on the cross walks.... go Kunming! Double bonus when the tour bus itself tries to run everyone over when it takes a right turn.

In all honesty what do you think the police are going to do with it? I doubt they're going to send it to a nature reserve or something.

The police are too busy doing whatever they do. They don't even keep the crosswalks safe for little kids and the elderly from public buses.... yet they're going to take care of a pangolin? hah...

Cheese tasted great. Much better than other pizza joints.

Excellent salad bar. Hamburgers are usually ok. The fancier dishes were a little lacking.

Giving it a 4 stars for the salad bar. If you were going there for "fine dining" then probably best to go somewhere else.

The store also has some nice imported food(though obviously Metro is cheaper for some things). The freshly baked goods are nice too.

Seems to be pretty hit or miss. First time I went there the pizza and hamburgers were great. 2nd time the pizza was terrible, and the hamburger was ok. 3rd time the pizza was ok, but people were smoking inside by the time we left. Guess the no smoking policy is not enforced.

Not bad. Pretty much what you would expect, but expensive for China.

Expensive, but decent bread. Other places are better, but not bad if you're in a hurry.
