Wait! You *can* get a good suit in Kunming. I got a great suit—my wedding suit, in fact—done a couple years back at a tailor on 螺蜂街 for Y1200. It was a well-made suit, and he was open to any specification you wanted to give him. A year later he made me a marvelous 中山服 coat for about Y800. It's on the left side going south from the 圆通街 intersection, maybe 2-300m south of Yuantong Street.
I'm returning to Yunnan this weekend after a too-long hiatus, for a month. I have an unlocked iPhone and would like to get a pay-as-you-go cell plan. Since I'm there for a short time, the China Mobile plans that I used to get wouldn't make sense.
Anyone have advice on what plans exist and are good deals for someone who (1) will be there for 3 weeks; (2) may check email but will not be streaming media, so doesn't need a large data allowance; and (3) will be spending half of my time in rural areas pretty far from Kunming?
Ah, yes, it is difficult to clean hard disks; I hope you folks figure that out. But since I want to recycle *power sources* and the cords that come with them—also a USB mouse that went kaput—I'm pretty sure I face no risk of information insecurity.
Let's try this again. Does anyone know where I can recycle electronics? Can I take them to some place at the tech stores on 121?
I've got a couple of computer power sources that got fried in rural areas with spiky electricity. Does anyone know if there a place in town I can take them to where there's a reasonable chance they will be taken to a safe disposal facility as opposed to thrown into a dump to leach toxic chemicals into the soil? If so, could you tell me where it is?
I just moved into a friend's apartment in Kunming, and before leaving he decided to change internet service providers, then disconnected his old service but didn't get to picking a new one. Previous postings make it look like we haven't much choice, but could anyone suggest providers or plans they find good--and provide contact information for the provider?
