Forums > Living in Kunming > The real problem?

ABC (agricultural bank) have been going around installing state of the art trading setups in housewives spare rooms all over middle china. Im talking quadcore, 3 screens, bloomberg- style keyboards. Ive seen this with my own eyes. These "investors" are grossly underqualified for this stuff, they should be sold mutual funds instead. They never even had a computer before, Anyhow, i was in one home where the following trading instructions were given: whenever the stock drops to MA20, buy. Now, this is obviously Crazy with a capital C. But man you should see these setups, technical indicators and flashing lights all over the place. In my view you need ten years experience of learning analysis methods and losing money, before playing the markets works.

Yes, mails from China to Gmail accounts are blocked, but not always and not very well. Ctrip called me up about it, asked me to provide an alternative email, saying that Gmail is blocked.

Most locks can be broken with a can of lighter fuel, 60 seconds. To keep your bike, take either the saddle or the handlebars with you.

Or put a GPS tag on it and track it with your iWatch..

Who is going to manage to read the sign as the cab is passing by.

There are too few cabs and too few busses. Ban private cars from the city center.

Friendly staff and good service, food and prices are ok. No complaints but its nothing special either, and not worth a visit unless you live closeby.

Nice atmosphere and cosy but the western food is bad. I think they deep-fry the burgers. As a cafe - 4 stars (service is a little bit lacking at times), coffee and cakes etc are good. As a restaurant, 2 stars (western food is too bad, asian food is mamahuhu).

"All the Meat" only had about 3 slices of salami on it, so maybe i got the wrong order. Anyway, leaving that aside - soggy bread, ketchup as tomatosauce, and cheese was probably from a tube.
Potato wedges soggy as well.
I left half my meal, the only thing up to scratch was the coke and the service. Will not be back.

If the name of the shop is written in english then they should speak english, yes! A pokey shithole trying to give the impression of a quaint li'l ole bookshop. Pig-ignorant staff, never been greeted with a smile there, nor even greeted. If you must shop here, bring your own bag. 1 star earned for selection and the (for me) convenient location.
