Forums > Study > Looking for the reviser


Perhaps the following can explain, in some ways, to you the reason for the uproar:

In the USA and perhaps in all western countries, "plagiarism", whether in academia or journalism, at the very least, is a serious ethics violation with grave consequences. As such, the reason for the negative reactions posted by all.

You have made some elementary mistakes in your original post. You should have composed your request in simple English that say exactly what you need, rather than use words that incorrectly convey the message. Instead of the words "to revise", which carry the connotation of "to re-write", you should have used words such as "to correct my grammar to make it more readable, without changing the meaning of the paper". You erroneously used the word "revise" and you did not explain your need succinctly. In addition, the reader reads that you further "conspire" to offer pay for the "revision", which made it sound even more unethical.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Is iPhone 4S CDMA compatible?

Thanks for the prompt response. Perhaps I am using the wrong nomenclature above.

By "unlocked", I meant not "Locked & married" to a particular service provider without the use of a SIM card (i.e., at&t or Verison and not able to change service providers with that particular phone).

I am referring to a standard iPhone 4S sold by Apple in Hong Kong that one can simply insert a micro SIM card to use the phone for making & receiving calls. I don't know what they call that type of phone. I am confused by Apple's specs and China Telecom's range of even more confusing answers. It's conceivable China Telecom is trying to make me "subscribe" their service and buy the iPhone from them!

Forums > Living in Kunming > Is iPhone 4S CDMA compatible?

Apple's specifications indicate iPhone 4S is a "world phone", both GSM & CDMA ready. My inquiries with different salespersons at the China Telecom flagship store on Beijing Road yielded a range of contradictory answers from "no" to "Yes". Does anyone knows for sure if a cut down size China Telecom CDMA SIM card (die cut by one of China Telecom's competitor, since China Telecom also told me they do not provide SIM card cutting service) will work on an factory unlocked iPhone 4S purchased from Hong Kong? Thanks in advance for responding.

Prague café (Beichen Walkway Garden B6)

The pasta dishes were so salty that our blood pressures were raised to dangerous levels. Anyone with high blood pressure would have risk a heart attach eating the food.

The "cook" (Certainly not "chef"!) added what looked like Szechuan dried red hot pepper to the bacon spaghetti dish that was not supposed to have the hot pepper (Prague Café explanation: the menu was incorrect!). They did offer to redo the dish, which was still a bit spicy hot, but the portion of the (supposed) "replacement" was roughly half the original portion. The Tuna spaghetti was supposed to be seasoned with oregano (according to the menu) but did not. It tasted like canned tuna fish with added salt and nothing else (Not even garlic indicated in the menu), then tossed with over-cooked spaghetti. The pasta portions were so small that each barely fills an 8-ounce (250ml) measuring cup. Because we were tired from a long day that also made us very hungry, we regretfully ate the food. The small portions were probable a blessing in disguise and save us from potential health problems.

Our unsatisfied hunger & my gf's sweet tooth made us ordered the tiramisu, which tasted like layers of tasteless whipped cream & cocoa powder.

For the aforementioned reasons, Prague Café food lack authenticity & quality and therefore very expensive at any price! I also question the purpose of their menu. We made no other complaints to Prague Café because we felt it'd be futile since they obviously do not know the purpose & etiquette of running a restaurant by their show of gall & arrogance! However, a review here would have a greater significance & influence hopefully for Prague Café & potential patrons respectively.


Initially, I WAS ecstatic to discover & read about a restaurant that offer great ambiance, service & food plus the additional sense of a museum all in one bundle. I WAS inclined to agree with fthpo & wiilb1.

But as a person with deep Cantonese roots, I find the food images posted by the Restaurant do not reflect true Cantonese cuisine in the presentation or use of ingredients, except perhaps the 2 images of the soup which remotely resembles a Cantonese origin.

Nevertheless, I shall make an effort to try the Restaurant soon and post my review of the overall experience.



Recently it took me half of a day to finally find one of the Wicket Basket restaurants. Since I am new to Kunming, I don't even remember which of the 2 it was. Luckily, I asked for a business card (a habit when I visit or patronize a place I thought worth another visit) and they gave me one for each of the 2 restaurants. Their e-mail address (for both) is: thewickerbasket(at)hotmail.com
