Forums > Living in Kunming > Visa extension?

The department of education froze new visa applications last week before mine went thru, likely in response to the Covid upsurge. My current study visa expires at the end of March. If I'm unable to get a new visa by then, it'd be a big scramble to try to get my affairs in order in a few days and get out of Dodge. Back in the day I had a Z work visa, and PSB gave me (at the request of employer, I think, which was ironically the DoE) a month travel visa after its expiry. Has anybody heard of something like that for study visa? Thanks muchly

Forums > Living in Kunming > Any non-smoking restaurants?

thank you all.
the loft closes after dinner, unfortunately.
slice is a great idea. little out of the way, but great food and atmosphere.
i'll check out the other few as well.

haha there's a new article here on gk that links low iq to dirty air:[...]

wonder if cig smoke has the same effect.
whatcha think, napoleon;)?

have a springful day, y'all.

ps: hit up slice. they smoke right outside open doors/windows, so it wafts in, but still better than if they were inside. smokers both days i went.

ps2: cantina very nice also. quiet. very nice boss, like slice. no outside smokers the rainy day i went.

update: went another, non-rainy day, bunch of smokers outside, including proprietress, few feet from open doors, so it might as well be a smoking restaurant.
mcdonalds is right around corner, upstairs quiet, good wifi, close 11pm, doors closed so smoke stays outside. but only usb chargeports, no electrical outlets.

ps3: cuihu doesn't allow wheels, so you'd have to hoof it to the Park and back. tried to schmooze up the guard, nice guy but no go. don't know if you'd wanna lock bike/moped up lakeside after dark.

Opened after dinner, near Wenlin or anywhere.
After dinner it seems most restaurants around here are the place to go for a beer and a smoke.
Would prefer something quieter to a bustling KFC.
Thank you.

just a few phones. gifts for a few relatives' kids. no famous brands, they're gonna break them in no time anyway. basically copy of resegold iphone 7s for 400rmb a piece. it runs infamous 360's android fork.
kids break a screen a month at least, even with that unbreakable film on, so it's good enough for them.

package is on its way.

global from asia (episode GFA216) podcast interviewed a haigui who opened a third-party logistics company, 云途物流.
they're set up for B2B and B2C primarily, so it took a while to go through the online process with their excellent qq (yeah people still use qq!) support.
it'll cost even less than with postal service.
also they said there'll be no import duties.

@haali: never say die, brother/sister:)
