Forums > Living in Kunming > shipping bikes to UK

China Post, which is the only cheap option, works with standard boxes to optimise loading and handling. Both a frame and wheels are each too big to fit in their standard boxes.
A consolidated freight, if you can find an agent for this, might work but you have additional cost collecting it again in the UK and probably have to pay tax over it.
Friends of mine took their bikes as accompanied luggage with Cathay Pacific. Cathay allows 30KG luggage and one has to pay a surcharge for the oversized package (It has to be packed in an official bike shipping carton). Cathay (Combined with Dragon Air) has the added advantage that you only have to check in your luggage once because you straight away leave the Chinese mainland so you don’t have to deal with it in Beijing, Shanghai and the like for your flight out of the country.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Need US phone number

Your phone number is fixed to your SIM card. Normally you can transfer your SIM card to any other phone and keep your number. But I might be mistaken in this case; that is if your phone is bought as a package from a provider with all kind of restrictions.

Yes it was getting rather quiet at GoKunming. Even Covid is hardly a topic any longer but thanks to the rain we have something to talk about again.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Chiropractor?

Chiropractic is a pseudoscientific complementary and alternative medicine that is concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine. Chiropractors, especially those in the field's early history, have proposed that such disorders affect general health via the nervous system. The main chiropractic treatment technique involves manual therapy, especially manipulation of the spine, other joints, and soft tissues, but may also include exercises and health and lifestyle counseling. Chiropractors are not physicians or medical doctors.

WayoftheSun. False info? I am just raising some points how the present situation has come to this. Don't blame me but the unscrupulous breeders and owners that keep dogs for the wrong reasons and on top of that don't know how to deal with them.

I have no problem understanding that your shepherd is a proper dog and you know how to deal with but the situation I see around me here is China is different. Lots of gangster breeders and owners that don't know even the basics.

A muzzle is not the solution. Just two recent cases in England and New Zealand where kids were mauled by their family dogs in their own homes.

@WayoftheSun
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.

Dognappig
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 ;-)
