Meituan "paotui" aka 跑腿 is the name of their expedite, in-town parcel delivery service I was referring to. During raining/flooding periods such as today, the system automatically adds 4 rmb (flat rate) to "paotui" delivery rates by distance.

I checked out Sal's Meituan delivery. Menu items include quesadillas, burritos, salads, cheesecakes, coffees whatnot, but no pizzas to choose from. What am I doing wrong?

Btw, pictures of all the dishes look very delicious w/ easy-to-read English language labels.

For those who forgot card and cash, you can now ride the metro by following them on WeChat, scan to track trip and pay for fare.

For bus commuters. Install UnionPay app and get on public buses for just a pretty penny.

None taken. Sometimes mixing exotic flavors to tried and tested classics is less about local culture but more hit or miss marketing campaigns to attract customers whose palates have gone stale. Green tea ice cream, coffee, and tea case in point.

I get it with durian. It's an acquired taste. For some, a nonstop process of acquiring that never bear fruit. Some hotels in Thailand don't even allow these fruits into premises. Talk about fruit discrimination.

Regarding OP's complaint with Sal's delivery services. The owners are probably skimping on Meituan's 4,000rmb annual fees.

For those who don't know, Meituan food delivery app has evolved. It now offers inner-city same hour delivery of all your parcels. One hour delivery is guaranteed.

For less than 10 bucks, your packages will be delivered within minutes to anywhere in Kunming. Differentiated from standard kuaidi companies, this niche Meituan service is useful if you need emergency in-town delivery.

Funny you should mention though.

Wujiaba Greenland Headquarters at the old Wujiaba Airport is slated to become the tallest skyscraper (428m), at the core of what is touted as the "future smart city" area of Wujiaba.

Patrick Scally previously reported on redevelopment bids for Wujiaba's ten square kilometers of urban renewal project. One of them being the same American architectural, urban planning, and engineering firm in charge of Eye of Spring, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM).

Along with other firms, SOM submitted an urban planning sustainable development bid to city officials for Kunming Wujiaba New City Center to "use its extensive network of waterways and greenspace to reduce runoff and clean water naturally, improving the water quality of Kunming's scenic Dianchi Lake while simultaneously creating a vibrant urban habitat."

So who won the bid? Would be appreciated if Patrick followed up on this massive development project at Wujiaba.

Sustainable landscape architect design team from Finland has been tapped to resurrect the future Dongfeng Square at Kunming's city-center.

Behemoth steel frames of Eye of Spring are rapidly rising across from Kunming's current tallest Hang Lung's Spring 66. Eye of Spring will eventually surpass Spring 66 with a 77-storey skyscraper, along with a smaller 71-storey skyscraper. The Ritz-Carlton will be entering one of the two.

Yesterday morning, developer Junfa held a press conference across the street at Gingko Department Store showcasing the green design features of Eye of Spring. Expect more Chinese publications discussing the project in days to come.

Exciting news for Shangri-la's high speed rail.

At the end of this year, the Shangri-la's HSR station will commence its maiden voyage through the northwestern mountains in the direction of Tibet, setting up for future linkage to the autonomous region down the line.

Destination details can be revealed by Vera & contributors.

This segment of HSR completion will provide a quieter, safer, and faster alternative to the current honking of horns through ever-winding mountain roads via buses.

Rail connection en route to Lijiang (still under construction) won't be operational until next year as previously planned. Hopefully in late 2020, HSR linking Kunming - Dali - Lijiang - Shangri-la will be finally realized.
