Forums > Living in Kunming > Children's clothes


When I moved into my new place the landlord left a pretty large sack full of kids clothes. I am looking to get rid of it but think it too much of a waste to throw. It appears to be all girl's clothes aged 8-10 (maybe, I really am not sure) So if anyone is interested please private message me, or maybe someone knows where to donate clothes??

I'm not into conspiracies but I didn't realise it was that easy to pick up radio signals like that so it was a like surprising.

But i will be wearing tin foil round my head in the future

So i was lying on my bed with my head near my speakers which are connected to my computer. I suddenly started hearing very quiet voices. After some confusion I realised it was coming from my speakers. At full volume the voices were only audible up close. It was some Chinese radio station. I presumed it must be from a website I visited or a pop-up. But after closing all windows and programmes there was still the transmission. Has anyone experienced this? I can't hear it without putting my ear close but still...why is my computer picking up this signal??
I have a mac, cheap Chinese speakers. I thought it may be an error from my Astrill VPN but the radio is still there when it is closed.

(just listened again..turns out it is a FM99 - a Kunming radio station, but still no idea why I'm receiving it)

Visited yesterday. The atmosphere was a little frosty towards foreigners after covid. But still some lovely people there. Sadly the figures guarding the monk's tomb were stolen two years ago. One of the tombs was prised open so I presume both were looted. It's the furthest site to walk to from the town as well so maybe not worth it :(

I have no problem with cutting back the trees for better growth but the trees on my street and many in Wuhua are now being dug up (roots cut off i.e killed) and bags of earth left for the tree that will replace it. These are tree that have new shoots. Seems very illogical and money/time-wasting. Surely either a big mistake in management or someone is making a big profit on the new trees at the people's expense

I am no expert on plants and trees but it's fairly common that things die in winter and magically grow back in spring. I was very surprised to see the extent of the cutting back of the trees. But now all is clear.

Today i saw some of the remaining trees in the centre being not only cut back, but then uprooted and taken away. The irony is that they spent such a long time messing round with the trees after the winter and now Spring has arrived most remaining trees are sprouting new shoots. By Summer they'd be fine.

However when someone sees an opportunity to waste funds and fill their own pockets contracts for new trees are drawn up quickly.

Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions but I see no other reason why this is being done.

1 - normal bus journey
2 - normal bus journey+unnecessary air-con
3 - normal bus journey+unnecessary air-con+unnecessary Wi-fi

No real difference to most foreigners/well-off Chinese but the average worker really gets screwed.

I've never met a Chinese person who knows the 'animal race' story. Is it just a Western reinterpretation of the story? If not., why do very few Chinese people know it?
