@bucko: "So where is the reader on the subway?"

The reader for phone's QR code is in the same gates where you would normally have your paper ticket or card read.

Some of the previous comments discussed the issue of quitting forum in response to conflicting views with (or about) other forumites.

Well I wouldn't take that as indication of character flaws in such quitters.

Rather, in my opinion it equals similar real life situation where in response to conflicts you walk away, or stop listening or reading something.

Taking it as character flaw would be akin to responding to conflicting views by going on killing spree, or putting a bullet in your own head.

JW202 is needed as attachment to student visa application. If you are not yet in China, and do not even have visa to come here, sitting in class while waiting for the paperwork can be difficult.

If you already are in China, and want to/need to change visa in order to study, have you confirmed whether you need to leave country to do it?

If you need to chage the visa to study, I don't think that universities should be very welcoming to students sitting in classes without valid visas.

The whole function of the JW documents seems to be that only authorized universities get foreign students, and the few that are may hesitate to risk losing that authorization.

There perhaps was a time, when embracing reality same way you would savour the croissant, could have been beneficial to achieving an enlightened state of mind.

But today, many would call such view on life quite the opposite of enlightened - it could be called ignorance or covering your eyes from all that is wrong. Perhaps that's suitable in Chinese context.

There, I connected the croissant to politics.

@sezuwupom : "JanJal is living the good life [...] Igor's delivers to your door."

You forgot to mention that I recycle and care for environment, which is why I would prefer to pick up my bakeries on my way rather than have someone on scooter deliver it wrapped in plastics. Even if it would leave the plastic maker and the scooter driver jobless. They could find new jobs in Just Hot, which I keep in business.

But I wish best of luck to Igor's. If location is everything, they have some catching up to do to reach out to potential customers like they are doing in this paid review..

Went here one morning after grocery shopping in nearby Walmart.

No surprise, shelves were less than half-empty like they are in all upper scale bakeries I've visited in Kunming, specifically in the mornings before lunch.

They all seem to get stocked up few hours after lunch time, which for me is too late because I like to consume my sweets at home(=office) couple of hours after lunch, without making a separate trip for it.

Thus my staple bakeries remain from big and soulless chains like Just Hot, that have their donuts ready before 11am.

They also say time is a healer, and it takes time to grow. While time does get peope killed, it also helps greatly in reproduction. Without time, we would not have gotten where we are now - nor would we get to develop into extradimensional beings bound by neither space nor time, if we ban it now.

What I propose, is that we do not ban time, but instead develop ourselves beyond time, so that we no longer depend on it, and becomes indifferent to us.

On a related but more serious note, should humanity also develop beoynd organic in our feeding patterns?

For most people, things like "organic" or "free range" has already developed past hunting wild game and gathering roots and berries. For the minority that still practises such, our current methods to grow our food must appear as strange as eating protein grown in reactors would sound to many of us.

A store we frequent for vegetables and meat is Q+Life in B1 level of TKP Shopping Mall (Beijing Lu / Baiyun Lu). My wife has bought for their green advertising, I cannot vouch either way but I'm satisfied with the quality.
