Forums > Living in Kunming > Why do miserable foreigners remain in China?

"However, many of the complainers I know are not in those situations. They hate almost everything about China, yet they could easily leave. But they don't! Insteadm they go around with sour faces, insulting kind Chinese people, and generally making foreigners look bad. Why? I really want to know why they do not leave (those types in particular)."

Why not ask the individuals in question? Surely this makes the most sense.

"Wow yeah without a treadmill or bike im not sure I understand what sort of cardio options they could possibly have....those are like the most basic pieces of equipment a gym could really have."

From memory they have a tattered skipping rope in the corner...

True story- I ran into blobbles in the wilds of the Tian Shan last year. We spent a few days in the mountains together, and at that time he often pondered aloud how much he wanted to cook up some marmot soup, an animal which is also known to have a high incidence of rabies. He eventually left the hills unsated.

It makes me wonder what really did happen to those that raccoon...



And for an "Adam Ryan" your......Engrish sux dude!

Babs' pizza is not bad at all, and Im not exactly sure how it could be swimming in oil even if it tried.


"In January 2012 we ended up with a lazy cook that produced very inconsistent dish quality, one day good, the next terrible, especially obvious on Pizza. Because it was just before Chinese New Year we could not fire him without problem staffing the kitchen."

Interesting that you made the decision to serve often "terrible" food, which people had to pay for presumably, rather than just close the kitchen until you could find a cook that didnt serve terrible fare. If I were you, and having been to your establishment once I speak with limited experience, I'd be extremely grateful with the 4 stars you already have


Is this place new, has it just changed to a fantastic new menu, or are there other forces at play here?

Any old timers or Michelin- rated French chefs who have recently moved to KM been here?


"chongzijia" would it be wrong of me to assume you had a relationship with this guesthouse? If so don't you think you should state this up front, and possibly abstain from giving a star rating?
Actually I think if you pay for an ad you are able to write an intro for your business...

Otherwise your review may appear to be slightly disingenuous? These reviews have low enough credibility as it is. Just a thought.


I went there over the winter. Beer was nice and cold but the bar appeared to have no roof. Perhaps it has one now...
