Forums > Living in Kunming > Yizu marriage and divorce customs

Yeah, I lived in Chuxiong before. The government may say they are all "Yizu", but don't tell them that. If I can recall just in Yunnan alone there is something like 8 to 10 "Yizu" groups that don't consider themselves to be Yizu.

Also the Windows 8 Apps of iQiyi and Sohu TV don't have advertisements. They also have a way to download in advance. Never tried to copy the download to another computer afterwards though.

Ok, a bit off topic, but useful if you just want a bit of Western soap operas without commercials.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Recommended VPNs

OH, and yes, my friends have much better sucess with Astril. But I already paid for one year of ExpressVPN, and it's good enough for me :P

Forums > Living in Kunming > Recommended VPNs

For ExpressVPN I find it'll be slow if you try to connect to the "recommended" list except for Hong Kong. Usually Malaysia, Japan, Indonesia, and Singapore are good enough for Youtube.

Also I find if I "fake" connect to three or four other random countries first by cancelling before it finishes connecting the speed is usually much faster.

Their Android client is also much better than their desktop clients.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Android phone for China Mobile

The chipset depends on which carrier you'll be using. The Xiaomi 3 version for China Mobile uses NVidia, and the rest use Snapdragon 800.

I believe the Xiaomi 4 out now uses a Snapdragon 801. Not sure about the one for China Mobile that comes out next month.

I don't think high schools and universities are going to have a week long session of role-playing. It will be just another pamphlet given to students along with the current material, and then likely never be discussed in class beyond a few minutes.

Besides that, discussing family values in high school and college is a wee bit late. Heck, in my rural conservative hometown we started studying sex education in 4th grade.

Another point is that the English should probably be "addicted to" and not "mentally dependent on"

The layout seems a little unbalanced, but not bad. I think it's because some text that doesn't have it's own boxed in background seems lost, like it's just floating around. Forums need to be updated to have threaded posts.. a rating system would be great. Even if it would something as simple as marking posts as "troll/flame" or "off topic".

I think the shortage of water is of usable water. I've heard that Dianchi lake is so bad that they can't even use the water for industrial usage. So I'm guessing, or at least hoping the water they use is ok for grass, but not for drinking... probably sewage water.

haha... the schools "quarantine" is useless. Students regularly leave the school. There's even a path between the bushes where they leave.

Many students have already gone home. Supposedly they're all supposed to come back now and sit around to do nothing.

Plus they let everyone and anyone talk at the main gate.



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.
