A friendly reminder for future reference. In the case where physical paper reports aren't necessary, nucelic acid test results usually appear just below the health code (in both English and Chinese depending on language settings) half a day after testing. Results would normally display in the afternoon if tested in the morning, and at night if tested in the afternoon. Scrolling down (located in the bottom left) may be required if test result isn't immediately shown below green bar code. Multiple test result history could also be viewed when clicked. All the info are bound to your health code identity, and synced with the central database of the NHC. True for both Alipay and WeChat hosted health codes.

To avoid confusion for others. 行程卡 is for movement tracking with up green arrow logo. I believe that app/mini program in WeChat would show * asterisk symbol for cities of medium to high risk within 14-days of visit.

You should be grateful they didn't keep you two in hotel quarantine where you'd have to dole out 300rmb/day.

For a limited time until June 26, 2022, the 66th top floor observatory will be open to public for free. Visiting hours: 14:00 - 21:00, weekends and holidays. One of the best breathtaking views of the cityscape. Great for family. Below the skyscraper is intersection of MRT Line 3 (pink) with Line 2/1.


For those following the tragic saga of the baby calf elephant (born at Kunming Zoo), who was forcibly separated from its mother to perform as solo act elsewhere for profit, there's finally some good news. After months of social media uproar and complaints over the cruel treatments of the calf in tears during training in leaked vids, the calf is soon returning back to our local zoo. The visibly depressed mother and calf will soon be reunited after a brief quarantine period. One extra star for the zoo for adhering to the voices of the public. A step in the right direction. More compassion for our animal friends in captivity.
