Forums > Living in Kunming > No more student visas for over 60's

I think that there was a major overhaul of the visa system recently. I remember reading an article that the central government had put out ideas being considered, for public consultation. Some of the proposals were to make things easier.

I have just had my RP renewed. The RP is now more sophisticated and has you photo printed as a part of it.

If you are already on a 2 year family RP, you can reapply with no need for a new medical.

The pick up and collection system is all by APP, as is

payment.

The Tuodon Lu office is being remodeled on the 1st floor, and it looks like the payment booth has been removed or will be revamped. Which also suggests that there may have been changes to the system of exit for Chinese nationals as well.
If the system has been completely overhauled, that would explain potential changes to other visa classes, student, work, and other. Which could include a tightening up in some areas to close loop holes.

One thing that has happened in the past is that if some new regulations have proven to be too strict and caused problems, they have quietly been relaxed.

No luck on the organic front. We are, where we can find them, buying direct from Yunnan farmers (or their reps). You really have to look for price. Some prices are 4x the price of other suppliers. We have been buying one thing, and then checking the quality. 50% of the time the quality is very good.

One advantage if it comes direct from the farm is that some harvest on demand, you order it and they dig it up.
Don't ask me for links, as my wife is still sorting stuff as we go, and it is hit and miss. Again, it is usually not organic.

@Faraz, I think something got lost in translation. I am looking for organic produce, not organic products.
Definition follows.
Produce is a generalized term for many farm-produced crops, including fruits and vegetables (grains, oats, etc. are also sometimes considered produce). More specifically, the term produce often implies that the products are fresh and generally in the same state as where and when they were harvested.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Free Legit TV/Movie Streaming

In the past I have asked about video streaming sites. I found this one today. It does not need a VPN and is free.

tubitv.com is free and legit. I have done a quick online search and it is said to be safe.

Legit - e.g. Paramount licenses 50 movies to Tubi every month.
Content seems to be TV series and movies prior to 2010. There are lots the movies we used to rent from Blockbusters as well as older and even foreign language movies.

The business model is based on advertising and so you have to put up with commercial breaks. Something us older folks grew up with.

Might be of interest to some.

I think the advantages for short term rental ebikes are the same as they were for short rental bicycles. With the added advantages of no additional cost charging, and no overnight parking issues (ebikes worse than bikes for this one).
The other advantages for the user, shared by both ebike and bicycle, include: free parking, can park anywhere, you can cross town on the metro and pick up another ride, no concern about theft (a big concern), and I am sure there are others.
