Forums > Living in Kunming > Arabic kids in kunming

This info is maybe not fully up to date, anyway, the mosque on Zhengyi Rd (at the intersection to dongfeng square) used to have lot of activities for younger people, and arabic classes. Attached to the mosque was a guesthouse and an arabic school, a Quran school, and visiting scholars stayed there too. I know this as I rented a room monthly in their moslem guesthouse for a while. But I dont have info how it is lately as there, something happened in 2013 in Kunming, among other things so unfortunately I dont know latest info. But you should definitely go and ask there if you have no other place to ask yet.

Tiger took it too personally, the narrative about the 'fake expat existence' , focusing life on experiences in different Mega Malls, spicing it all up with a tiramisu and a latte, while reading some fake news. Me and he will probably not get along well anymore.

Ishmael is cool with it all, as he tacitly agrees, and he's probably the only one here who could stroll around in Lahore in a gandhi dhoti, slurp local water from a clay pot, and enjoy the mystical sufi call from a minaret. He deserves some credit for that.

In a year or two, after he has had enough of China, I sort of look forward sharing a biryani in Lahore with him. I will probably try to persuade him to give up dreams of being a labor camp guard for good, and search for a spiritual call instead. May be a discussion on arabian nights too, while smells of sentenced afghani tobacco fills the air.

Doubt anyone has been deported bcs hepatitis b, wonder if it even effects the work visa. Me know laowais who got hepatitis in china, and where complaining ab this in china. One guy even had yellow eyes, no deportion. Dr Ho in Lijiang said he had cured hepatitis b, but 'it was very difficult'. He had diploma on it among the leukemia diplomas there. But hes gone now, the taoist doctor at the jade dragon mountain. Maybe he took the secret herbal formula with him.

I remember my first blood test in Kunming, the laowai clinic near old airport. For the blood test they put a small pillow under the finger, on which the finger was meant to rest, a pillow which was stained by blood, blood marks all over it. All focus went to make sure the finger didnt touch it, so the needle went unnoticed when it pinched. Now it probably sounds id be making this story up, unfortunately not. However one may assume things have moved forward now, that was in 2001.

Very interesting plant that has changed history of Yunnan in several chapters. Its mentioned in many old books on Yunnan, and it has many sombre tales to tell.. You can eat it in Binchuan, after its been boiled for 3 days. It still reaps people in Yunnan every year. But they probably still make dishes on it in Bichuan, and even if its banned, sure, they will have it around. Maybe something to brag to your pals about, "Ive tried aconite soup, how about you". I have, how about you,

Maybe its like buying a packet of condoms, some are what the packet says, some are recycled used condoms (like that news article wrote few months ago).



One of The Best bakeries in Asia. (note: ASIA)

Oh,....the ciabatta with cheese. Theres so much cheese on the bread, (and enough butter too), that you almost feel guilty being treated with it for 26 yuan. Its like buying a cheese with some bread.

Excellent place! Looking back at Yunnan, its like a miracle something has succeeded like Bakery 88.

Thank You.
