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.

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.

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.


Huh? How is Yunnan distinctive from rural areas in any other country with a centrally controlled economic system(which is pretty much any "modern and developed" country today)? How is The Brother's Jiang expanding everywhere in Yunnan different from Starbucks trying to expand in Yunnan?

Do you think Iowa has lost its distinctness because of all the Mexican and Chinese restaurants that have opened up? Oh wait, even though they almost all serve the same food, and their suppliers are almost all the same... it's so much better because they all have a different name... cripes, it's just marketing.

You can go to any city in Yunnan and you will see the same products being sold in all of them. What does it matter if the name of the store is in Chinese or in English? Does this somehow prevent you from speaking to the people who work there? Does it stop you from taking your time? It's just a marketing symbol, get over it.



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.
