Perhaps a pack of hungry tigers would prefer to devour it raw as the main feast, lol. Moreover, raw pork may not sit well with Chinese families given recent scare of African swine fever outbreak.

Shouldn't elevation & pressure variables be plugged into that equation? Our 1,900m above sea level ought to increase temp or lengthen the cooking time a bit, no?

Nope, no thermometer in stock at Carrefour nor Muji.

The cheaper "Carrefour Home" utensil brand is giving Fackelmann run for their money.

Good luck with that x'mas ham! Remember, imperfect family TLC time is more valuable than perfect tenderness of ham.

Carrefour has a bunch of Fackelmann kitchen utensils.

Last minute reminder... this morning 10am at Carrefour and Muji is the last day of 60 minus 30rmb via Unionpay using SamsungPay, ApplePay, HuaweiPay, MiPay, and/or MeizuPay.

I'll be going to battle with antsy shoppers in two hours. I'll keep an eye out for meat thermometers.

Incredible share @Peter! Almost 1,000 posts. Hope you reach it.

You seem to be right that most article features on 19th and early 20th century Auguste Francois are photographs, not video. The b&w motion really brings a bygone era back to life.

Because Vimeo is blocked in China, I took the liberty of downloading and then uploading the video to WeTransfer for all w/o VPN to enjoy (automatic deletion in 7 days):

@tiger

But the Chinese love the gambling aspect of drawing large raffle prizes at swanky 5-star hotel X'mas feasts, exorbitant entry fees notwithstanding. Thrill of winning holiday getaway villa packages, gift idea on its own merit.

To piggyback off @dolphin's DIY gift idea for last-minute shoppers...

the annex across the street from NanYa (南亚) Shopping Mall's Starbucks features a bunch of DIY handicraft shops: from woodcrafting, leather satchel-making (w/ guidance from leathersmiths), jewelry assembling, to putty molding and oil/acrylic painting.

Encapsulating the Yuletide spirit sometimes entails the aggregate moments of joy. More than handing someone a gift card.

So with her company or without (for surprise), put on your craftsman's apron and get busy:

@Ocean, now that's old school.

Kunming's ubiquitous Jiang Brothers' (江勇 & 江俊) "Qiaoxiangyuan" cross-bridge rice noodles restaurant chain origin and breakup saga deserves it's own featured article.

At an early age, the brothers began their enterprise after working in the Mengzi railway for two years.

For charity events, it may be important to make visible on GoK names of top donors afterwards. Beforehand, tell personal biographical stories of the children who were saved last year:

"Little Shi is an 8-month old baby boy, with several holes between the left and right sides of his heart. He lives in Luxi county. His parents are poor farmers. This baby weighed only 5 kilograms and was not growing. His parents are farmers, earning about $3000 per year. China Cal doctors diagnosed his condition and its partners supported his surgery at West China Hospital and he was recently discharged home and is recovering."
