Read your BBC link.

If traditional diet of the elephants had been depleted in their natural habitat due to human encroachments, perhaps their 15 Elephant March protest at the doorstep of COP 15 is surreptitiously getting the attention of the United Nations before they convene in October.

Colin, this was just updated 2 hours ago on ft.com in regards to yesterday's new guidelines issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand:

"Carriers will be asked to perform health checks of passengers at check-in and passengers will be asked to present health certificates “certifying that they have no risk of Coronavirus Disease”, according to the guidelines, dated March 8 and published on Monday... Passengers who are unable to present such certificates will be denied boarding.

Thailand last week designated the same six countries and territories “dangerous communicable disease areas”, and imposed a mandatory 14-day self-quarantine requirement for people arriving from them. The new rules set a 20,000 Thai baht ($633) fine for people who failed to comply, but there was confusion as to how the new rules would be enforced, or to which countries they would apply."

Colin, I hope you're not entering Thailand from China ( nor South Korea, Macao, Hong Kong, Italy or Iran). Because if you are, you'd be facing a 14-day compulsory quarantine.

Get ready for a marathon shower & doughnut binge, perhaps at the same time.

Haven't passed by Just Hot as of late, so I can't be certain.

But in case they're closed, other Kunming bakery chains like Jiahua Bakery sell donuts, as do Carrefour bakery. The ones that Homer Simpson likes to eat. Can't be overly picky during an outbreak, now can we?

Bon Appétit seems to be well stocked, though lots of empty containers at Holiland Bakery. Bread Works also open. Latter three bakeries don't seem to have donuts, unfortunately.

Still, an upgrade from your chickens and survivor piggy.

Thank you for the beautiful photographs Fabio. We look forward to more Yunnan culture, wildlife, and landscape through your lens. Happy journeys with Vera.

Whether snow leopards, yaks, llamas, or these funky monkeys, the sheer amount of fur these guys sport at cold, high altitudes speaks volume of evolutionary natural selection and adaptivity of our mammalian kins.

But Carl also spins breakbeat, which is a mixture of funk, jazz and R&B. So Detroit techno shouldn't be the sole answer as that limits his range. Darn, I was hoping to win this. Next time.

Since we're on the subject of Hang Lung Spring 66, Crystal Jade Golden Palace restaurant on the 6th floor may be worth a visit after experiencing TeamLab on the 2nd floor.

Their sister restaurant in Singapore received a Michelin one star:

Acclaimed dishes are their BBQ pork (炒烧肉) hung on racks. The dongpo meat (东坡肉) looks succulent. The sweet sour pinnaple fried and cooked fish is also tasty. Portions of other dishes like steamed eggplants are quite generous and delicious as well. A group of staffers can be seen preparing steamed pork buns (小笼包) behind see-through glass.

If you're closer to Nanya mall, Crystal Jade has a store there too, I think. And another one somewhere else in Kunming.

Our new editor is on a roll. Pumping out articles seemly every few days. We appreciate your super work ethic. Thank you!

This TeamLab future amusement park looks like a place where children would enjoy. Per Vera's descriptions, an unique interactive medium to unleash your child's creativity. Heck, the kid in me would be just as giddy. Being immersed in all that glow in dark black light is already enough to wow me, let alone DIY art works animated into life and interacting with others. Pretty cool.

For parents thinking about where to take their hyperactive kids with too much pent up energy, the new Aegean Shopping Mall on Baiyun Road No. 168 features a sizable ice skating ring with ice hockey classes what not. Also, another enormous two storey jungle cage with zip lines, trampolines, and assortment of bouncy objects & balls, and challenging climbing obstacles to satisfy the inner ape in all of us.
