For those desperately seeking meds and those with a surplus willing to donate, Tencent (parent company of Weixin) announced yesterday a mini-program that matches med seekers with over-stocked givers based on their proximity.

For safety reasons, parties would authenticate their personal information. Click on specific meds in need (or willing to donate). Rendezvous for the drug exchange.

This may come useful for empty-handed families suffering severe symptoms as run on pharmacies have rendered shelves empty.

When keeping warm during fever/chill, make sure to cover body with light and breathable material as to allow dissipation of natural body heat. Taking consideration not to overheat either.

Fever is still clocking in >38℃. Saving the fever med until the old school armpit thermometer hits above 38.5, granted it is advisable 0.3 - 0.6℃ should be added to these types of armpit thermometers.

Maybe the crowded weekend buffet wasn't such a great idea after all.

Suffered a 40 ℃ fever throughout last night into late morning. Shivering cold with cold sweat despite burning up. Accompanied by migrane, full body ache, breathing difficulties and fatigue.

Luckily we had fever reduction meds stored. Many people aren't so fortunate as most pharmacies are cleaned out and restocking have been slow. Friends may be useful in times like these.

Symptoms may creep up from nowhere, so have meds readily available for easy access when bodily functions are suddenly compromised in the wee hours.

The Wall Street Journal currently features the China-Laos Railway on its front page in a special video report:[...]

This WJS report reveals China's BRI plan to connect SE Asia via this railway. Journalists Nikki Walker and Todd Holmes obviously didn't travel to the border SEZ themselves. This area has been a ghost town with stalled development projects for several years, but may slowly pickup in the future if one is cautiously optimistic.

Nice to see the return of travel blog pieces on this site.

Moon and Chalice boutique hotel has turned into a must-visit "打卡" (punch-in time slot) destination for selfie taking tourists who come to Kunming in the past couple of years.

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.
