Forums > Food & Drink > Memories of Moondog

When I arrive in Kunming in 2012 Moondog for me was the neighborhood pub, where I met people, mostly foreigner, and which helped me to find by my ways in Kunming. It was also the meeting point for the very impressive amateur Musik scene in Kunming. I felt immediately home in this place and until it was sold in 2015 to new owners I spent countless enjoyable hours there, meeting people having good talks but I remember best the many gigs I played there with Joost. Sure it wasn't the place where you take your future in-laws for a first meeting, but it was always fun to be there and enjoy Fried's unbeatable collection of fine Whisky's. I am and always will be grateful for Joost's and Fried's friendship. I left Kunming for good in 2017.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Heads Up - Trump-NKorea

Trump, Putin, Kim Jong Un, Assad, Erdogan, Duterte........I wonder how much more the world can stand and how much more the human race can take before they wake up, chase them to hell and find people who are really representing humanity. Or is it just a rumor that we are the most intelligent species on earth?

Forums > Travel Yunnan > Incredibly rude floor staff , Chinese Eastern

International Airline! Ha! Their ground staff does not recognize passports, luggage allowances are not known. Last time I had to discuss for 10 minutes if I need a visa for my home country. The staff is simply selected by look not qualification. Defiantly the worst airline I have used. Yet the one with the best connection from Kunming, and the only one with a direct service to Europe from Kunming. However, if I can avoid CE I'll I go for others, just to make similar experiences. Flying from Kunming airport sucks either way.

Good luck to you and your partners. I wish you all the success to write the next chapter in the "Moondog history" and bring this unique place to the next level. Cheers!

@AlexKMG Not only you. I am waiting for that since the new GoKunming layout. I was promised a couple of times they would be working on that......

Kunming will not be the same without you! You were one of the first people I met when I came to Kunming and John you were my motivation and inspiration to dedust my guitar and start playing again. Thank you do much for the wonderful shows and the time we spent together. I wish you the best of luck in your new home and I am sure that we meet again. Ralf

I have taken this flight several times as it is the only direct flight to Europe from Kunming. Honestly, I am so happy and relieved that I don't have to use China Eastern any more since I left Kunming and China some months ago for another destination. Not that this incident can not happen with other airlines, but they might react more responsible. China Eastern chapter closed for once and for all.

When I first came to Kunming a little more than 3 years ago it didn't take long until I discovered the Moondog as a perfect hangout to unwind. The neighborhood atmosphere created by Joost and Fried is something that is unique and made the moondog to be a home away from home. I enjoyed every hour that I spent there, but I loved the evenings when I could play music with Joost. Thanks for your friendship, your patience when it didn't work like it should have and for the moondog. Joost, keep on rocking, rock the Netherlands and come back to Kunming. See you soon! Ralf



It is a little too far to get your backery stuff from the "best backery in China" if you are living in Kunming. ;-) Any plans to open a outlet in Kunming?
