Forums > Food & Drink > Bread in Kunming

Not to familiar with the Kunming bread situation anymore because I simply make my own bread, but as far as I know “good bread”, that is bread without a sweet flavour like all Chinese breads, is available at Igor’s bakery and it is sold as well at Salvadors/Mimosa.

The Wicker Basket shops as well sell a rather bland but not sweet loaf of bread.

A friend of mine gets quite good results himself with a bread making machine, like me, he buys his ingredients on line.

I don’t know about German bread but pumpernickel style bread is available online of the Jason brand which is not bad and at least not sweet.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Many Condo complexes (小区) are giving Covid testing

Well this might as well be the last post on this forum topic because there are no longer mass testings. All the testing sites I know have closed down.

I had my last test on Sunday thus three days ago and still not have received the result. Funny thing is that was the first test I actually had to pay for and my first individual test. As well the only one that might have been positive. I probably will never know.

Many people reporting flu like symptoms and some coming up with Covid positive test results from home rapid tests. Looks like Omicron is spreading freely through Kunming.

Anyway, the days of mass and combined testing are over.

And looking forward to the time when passinger trains will go to Vientiane as well. Much more interesting then touring "The Big Shopping Centre In the North" (=Lijiang).

I largely agree with you that it is not the dog but the owner that is the problem. But you have to realize that there is a correlation between them, like people that buy a Lamborghini are more likely to be involved in a high speed accident than people who buy a QQ.
The problem is that people that, let say, buy a pit bull terrier, usually are not doing so to prove that these are nice family dogs but do so for the reasons why these dogs are forbidden now.

An other point is that certain breeds which where OK before, like for example the various shepherd breeds, for whom I have as well have good experiences, I was allowed to walk a friend's shepherd when only 4 years old, have changed.
Many of these dogs are not any longer what they used to be. This because of unscrupulous breeding for commercial reasons. The nice and friendly shepherd I walked as a 4 year old is not the same as the shepherd my neighbor bought as a status symbol to go with his Cayenne.
For this reason I support banning breeds. Not because of the dogs but because of the owners.

Kidnapping of a dog in our compound occurred yesterday. The dog was lured outside with a ham sausage and then taken off the compound. Security camera's showed all the action even of the kidnapping lady buying the ham sausage in the convenience store next to the compound.
The dog involved was an Akita, which is one of the forbidden dog breeds in Kunming. Apparently there still is a market for these dogs.

When I read the header I thought that is fast because last night the just visited me. Turned out the article is about the previous census ;-)
