Forums > Living in Kunming > Making money

I should have added, I also don't want to become a rentboy.

I would'nt agree that everyone is looking for ways to make good fast money. Short-term thinking is probably the reason so many of those I've met failed and continue to fail. Personally, I don't need the money but it would be nice to have an interesting and slightly profitable enterprise. In Europe I've met dozens of Chinese people who run successful sideline businesses and they have no problem being transparent, because they're genuinely adding value by providing a product or service in a convenient/cheap way, and have built relationships and ways-of-working which cannot be copy-pasted.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Do famous artists ever perform in KM?

I would like to go to some pop/rock/hiphop/etc music concerts with top artists, whether they be Chinese or international. In fact the type of music is not the most important - mostly I like the atmosphere of a big crowd of fans. Do I have to go to a bigger city? I've been in KM a while but all I ever see advertised is local bands. Are any of them any good?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Making money

Any suggestions or proven examples of how to make a half-decent income in KM without becoming an employee? Selling stuff to folks back home via the web is the most obvious, but I've met a lot who tried and failed - not sure why, really. Anyhow, all input welcome.

Forums > Living in Kunming > YNNU / YNU Accomodation standard

Hi - does anybody know what the accommodation standard is at the universities? I've only found one pic of the rooms on internet, on a site called sichina.org and it looks like a normal hotelroom.
I understand they charge 120 per day, and need to pay the whole semester up-front.

We cant live our lives without commodities futures. If you cant guarantee the future price, the farmer is forced to speculate and might grow something else instead, leading to unmanageable swings in supply and demand.
Rare earth metals, however..might be a bit of a bubble? Could be that some people buy it just because its rare. Maybe this stuff so rare that it has no practical use.

Sounds like a similar activity I did in South Africa a while back.. Very cool :)

has anyone else read Herbery Allen Giles books? he has an interesting analysis of traffic culture 100 years ago. everyone gives way to the man with the load. its one of the very few things that have changed since he wrote his books.

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.
