Just to bounce this thread - new cool places are the Maan and Mellower Cafes in the mega malls.
Prague Cafe in Beichen (2F) is still super fantastic and super nice, but regrettably for Prague - not super high foot traffic. It's generally quiet.
Chinese ID cards have 18 digits - so try inserting leading zeroes so the total number of digits is 18...
Failing that - you'll have to contact them online (they have seriously crappy service) and send them your passport pic...
Alternative - switch to alipay...
My daughter gave up, got a new mobile number and just re-registered everything...wechat was totally unresponsive to email.
The answer is yes and no.
If you're a Chinese citizen - you can link your WeChat to the special app/svc that allows you to receive forex.
If you're NOT - then you'll need to use you're wife's/girlfriend's account, ID, and bank accounts (to include offshore bank accounts) to transfer funds into your WeChat.
Currently, I'm still unaware of any way to directly wire funds into WeChat pay, so we just use SWIFT to put money into our WeChat linked account.
I've never liked the personal attacks on this forum. Debate or discussion is great as it helps us see other sides of polarizing issues - but when a debate or discussion decays into personal expletive ridden bullying - that's just "uncivilized", so I'm glad to see that's been toned down significantly, if not eliminated.

Just stopped by Wicker Basket Beichen again to stock up on frozen pizzas, frozen pies (chicken, beef), cheese, and sliced ham (ask them to slice it for you). Love this place - simple decor, polite helpful nice staff - nothing fancy - but gets the job done.
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.
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.
