I see Dolphin has potentially SIX (6) consistently displeased critics - all seemingly downvoting at the same time - or a single critic with six proxy accounts.

We tried China Mobile - it's ... ok...but for consistent reliable high speed, we'll be switching back to China Telecom. They have the best fiber backbone. The plans also come with mobile services - which means you'll have to change your mobile if you want to use China Telecom, cuz Kunming doesn't know or is too lazy to re-register China Mobile numbers with China Telecom (it's really troublesome to do).

@bluebird
If you're suggesting buying the vaccines here (less expensive) and taking them with you - some if not all may need to be refrigerated.

Secondly and most importantly - most physicians will decline using vaccines of unknown origins with unreadable (chinese language) labels.

We actually collided with this form of hospital process confusions several years ago - our maternity physician directed us to go to a specific vaccine bank to self-purchase baby vaccines - saying the hospital vaccine bank was low and there might be delays - so like good little troopers - we went off to the vaccine bank as directed.

When we presented the vaccines to the maternity nurses station - they refused - saying they don't take non-hospital purchased vaccines...

If you have feasible economic energy solutions competitive in price, energy output, resource consumption (land, rivers, etc) feel free to enlighten me. Hydro comes with a cost - that is well established - the issue is does anyone have viable alternatives?

Nice signs - so obviously sponsored and incited by cursed foreign NGOs with no responsibilities to the actual people of Myanmar. Hydropower provides a source of sustainable renewable energy. Energy is one of the core pillars of all sustainable economies.

No economy - no development - poverty, healthcare, education.

Finally got around to using Salvador's delivery service - tried it out on the chicken burrito and their bag of nacho chips. Delivery was flawless despite being a bit out of area (≥4km) and the food was still warm.

First experience - excellent (5 stars).

Excellent as always - even with long distance delivery. Now if only the online menu was expanded a little (like the chicken strips...hint hint hint...nudge nudge...wink wink).

Just stopped into Prague Beichen for dinner a few nights ago - and I'm shocked at how good their food is - five star international hotel quality. Even the fruit-based drink was made from genuine fruit - as opposed to the usual domestic fare of fruit syrup with chunks of fruit added. The food was well-presented and "plated".

The restaurant itself has had a major overhaul and now occupies both the ground floor and the second floor - well illuminated without being blinding, wide open and airy space (2nd floor), nice attentive but non-intrusive service, and reasonable prices for excellent cuisine.

Will absolutely return several times more, to savor and experience other menu items.

A pleasant surprise and culinary delight - great place for a date or even a quiet business meeting. Excellent atmosphere.

Just had a quiet and LONG lunch on their tiny patio and as usual, coffee is great, food is excellent, salads fresh AND Wicker Basket has lots of frozen foods, cheese, etc to binge buy and stock up your fridge and freezer at reasonable (not eye-gouging) prices.

Service is excellent - but it's NOT a Michelin rated establishment - so you do need to hunt down the staff to order - which is nice when one doesn't want to be constantly pestered.

Excellent coffee, tea, and simple meals - to include waffles and various incarnations of sandwiches. Ground floor is NO SMOKING, second floor (where they hide the bathrooms), SMOKING.

Extraordinarily popular place - beautiful location, typical service for Kunming - which means when it's good, it's stellar, when it's bad - it's terrifying - so they have a quality consistency problem that's reflected in the various staff and shifts.

However - it's still a great place to meet, hang out, chill, relax, etc. Just remember to DIY (do it yourself) most of the time.

Caesar's Salad and one of their fresh fruit flavored teas - always my favorite culinary delight here (see my review 6 months ago).

Don't forget to pick up a few freshly baked bread rolls, pastries etc on the way out.

For a NO-SMOKING designated environment - comfortable, quiet, elegant, for a bistro-ish experience.
