"It is precisely because we had this open and candid discussion that he realized that discrimination is an unacceptable part of western society and that he should not engage in it if he wishes to interact with us."

Doubt it. He may have learned not be so up front about this particular form of discrimination otherwise he won't get to post his ad, but its pretty clear what he is after and I'm sure he will select the candidate he wants.

Many ways to skin a cat
"1. The rule should uniformly apply to all offensive and objectionable material in the forum, not just discrimination"

As the OP, this was my main point. Rules is rules but at least they should be applied an an even- handed manner. I'm thinking most people would go along with that

I know some schools here* who prefer to hire black people because they feel they can pay them less, make them work longer hours, and not provide them a visa.

"I agree that photos is a sensitive issue, but also in the western world almost every resume nowadays goes with a photo...maybe soon with a facebook account??"

Not in the 3 Western countries I have lived and worked. Are you in the modelling or porn industries by chance?


No results found.


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...
