Updating this topic:

HuoLala (货拉拉- 拉货搬家) is a intra/inter town moving company growing in nationwide popularity. Their variety of vehicles, slapped with their orange logo, are ever more conspicuous in Kunming as well.

Order their services via their app, which has over 50 million downloads in one app store alone. Look for them on your Chinese mobile app store, though not Play Store?

Different sizes of vehicles can be selected according to your specific need. Over tens of millions of Huolala drivers at your fingertips, 365 days a year.

The word on the street is they are cheaper and more efficient than traditional moving companies with branches outside the Mainland in Asia such as Bangkok, Manila, Singapore, Taipei, and HK.

Has anyone tried them?

There were cases in the news where foreigners adopted Chinese orphans and raised them back in home country to a life of servitude , or worse.

Stricter screening policies were emplaced for foreigners applying for Chinese adoptions since. Strangely, parents being overweight was one the factors for denying applicants.

What Kunming need are specialized feet doctors such as in the field of podiatry. Over two dozens bones and soft tissues frequently overlooked by untrained eyes in sports related injuries, and injuries sustained by elders.

Also, learning Chinese on the side may help in your career endeavors. Good luck Artur!

That is quite an important development, and not just limited to holiday travel.

I wonder if this policy has more to due with technicalities of automatic airport customs via facial recognition by China-born dual citizenship identities in their database waiting to be ironed out....

or for economics, to curb birth tourism and money outflow, particularly to rival nations that recognize birthright citizenry....

or for party interests, to tighten harness of own citizens for motherland ideology preservation, given hk fallout....

or for politics, like a diplomatic whip to punish UK only, in relation to above interference?

Eastern medicine like acupuncture is actually integrated as one of the physical therapy regimens in forefront sports medicine as adopted in modern professional sports to expedite recovery of injured athletes, i.e. those with sprained or torn ACL (accompanying plasma therapy) or suffered various leg related or back injuries.

So i'd sanguinely put Chinese medicine in the wellness recup category if prescribed as treatment for a broken leg with collateral nerve/muscle/tendon/ligament issue.

Perhaps OP is stating that Yunnan 中医 is among "most advanced in the world" in terms of Chinese med, due to plethora supplies of raw, herbal medicinals originating from South of Clouds? Granted big pharma has their hands in the powder jar here as well.

Reddit serendipitously featured an adorable video of a snub-nosed monkey (endemic to SW China) on their front page, on the eve of Kunming's biodiversity conference tomorrow no less:[...]

This fluffy one being hand-fed appears to be a Sichuan golden hair monkey (aka Sichuan snub-nosed monkey). Video, rather than images, truly captures their essence.

It appears GoKunming has featured these sub-nosed monkeys quite a bit over the past twelve years. Looks like conservation efforts to stave them from extinction panned out.

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.
