You may have noticed the new batch of electric powered bicycles by Alipay's Hellobike. These are different from Alipay's new ebike scooters mentioned in another thread.

These blue battery powered bicycles with black, bulky handlebar costs 2rmb to ride. First 20 minutes are free for time being.

The thrust packs a punch as initial pedaling is automatically assisted to reduce work of acceleration from rest. A bit forceful at times, but wonderful for inclined slopes or times when riders would rather conserve energy.

The battery meter bar seems to recharge on its own during the rides. Perhaps some sort of built-in kinetic recharger?

In any case, riding these e-bicycles have become less strenuous and fun for daily commuters that need to go up slopes.


Younger, inexperienced riders need to take precaution as they reach relatively fast speeds, particularly on declines.

Also, the vehicle automatically shuts down upon leaving city center zone, as seen on Alipay's Hellobike map. The bike would probably speak to you in Mandarin before this incidence, as it does when you activate/deactivate their service.

Someone should let CNN know, Frank Losonsky died at age 99 earlier this year in February. Apparently he was the last remaining Flying Tiger.

A lengthy piece on Flying Tigers just published on CNN. Also a short video showcasing one of the last three living volunteer pilots, a 96-year old Losonsky. Cool pictures of the cool P-40 fighter planes in air are featured too.

The article even briefly mentioned Kunming...

"Chennault expressed his disappointment at his group's first combat mission against Japanese bombers attacking the AVG base in Kunming, China, on December 20, 1941. He thought the pilots lost their discipline in the excitement of combat."

Our collective love for Spring City is what fuels our solidarity. Much love to all.

Kunming Aegean Shopping Mall is now offering surgical masks on their official Wechat account. 50 masks for 120 rmb. Delivered to your door for those who may need them. The price is reasonable considering widespread price gouging on ebay, amazon, and the likes.

Are you back yet JanJal? Your warm donuts and hot shower await.

Exceptions excluded, I speculate younger generations on average harbour more tolerance toward bi/homosexuality than do their more senior peers.

Likewise, I suspect laws that do not favor nor protect gay couples in China are voiced by more senior members of the Central Committee, less so by their younger technocrat peers.

For the majority of Chinese parents in their early forties and under, their children may not have yet reached the marriage discussion age. Perhaps a topic more relevant for parents beyond late forties to early fifties given trend of postponed wedlocks.

Maybe Chinese parents in this age group can chime me on this issue.

Honest communication is probably the best way forward between straight parents and their LGBTQ+ kids. Though I stand to be corrected.
