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.


No results found.


If you use more than so much a month they double the rate. I believe the it's 10 "units" where each unit is 10,000 l, but I'm not sure. You can go look at the water bills posted and see that those who use more than 10 units a month are much more than others.

So why don't they test the products at the source, or at least the lake water? I guess speculating is more fun, not to mention safer for the reporters anyways.

The rainy season usually doesn't start until about July or August.

There were a couple of days we ran out of water in the afternoon/evening this month, but it hasn't happened since. I live near Yunnan Yingxia on Chuanjin Lu.

The management said Kunming only has about 50% of the water it needs. I've heard as low as 30%.

The forum looks nice, but could the topics aren't well organised. The main site definitely needs a more organised layout.

Overall the English isn't too bad, but there are some articles that could use an editor. Any reason why you just don't hire an editor?



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.
