Forums > Living in Kunming > Renew of a visa

No idea, my wife's temporary ID is valid 12 months. Personally, I would ask the staff at PSB Tuodong Lu. They are very helpful. If you need to return to Dali, they will tell you.

I had a similar thing a few years ago, my wife had forgotten to renew her temp ID and so I was unable to process my visa in Kunming. We then went to the city where my wife has a hukou. But you need to be able to register a residential address with the local police in that city.

My wife does not have a Kunming Hukou, but has a temporary ID for Kunming. It was needed for visa renewal.
In the past my wife's application has taken one month, but last time it was two weeks, as there is a new computerized system. It was issued at the same police station as I register my place of residence.

Fried goat cheese, in batter.
I was at a village the other day and I ate this.
Fried goat cheese, they called it suan rubing (sour goat cheese). Maybe you can buy suan rubing, or you just wait until it is a little ripe.

The cheese was cut into strips, about 4-5mm square and about 20mm long (julienne style), dipped in a simple flour batter, and deep/shallow fried quickly (you would only need about 10mm of oil for this one).
Served with a spoon of sugar and a spoon of black pepper on the side, for dipping.

Stinky tofu makes as much sense as blue cheese, which I love.
My father worked with Sudanese in the 1950s. He said that they thought that the European's habit of eating rancid milk (cheese) was disgusting.

Pi dan is another one.

Environment is also now a key factor in a local governments performance evaluation. This changed last year after the environmental figures for China were published.

You probably couldn't get a mandate to redevelop an area and build an underground shopping mall. Especially if it causes major disruption.

There is an existing mandate to build bomb shelters, and there are added benefits to both the infrastructure and opportunities for business that can be captured too :-)

My university and tertiary students only had lectures between 8am and noon, Many didn't even turn up for lectures, but would turn up for exams. There is an old joke in China, that university is hard to get in (Gaokao), but easy to get out (very hard to fail). I was told by my Dean, in one provincial level uni., that if SS failed and exam they would resit up to twice and would be given an automatic pass after the second resit.

At a tertiary college in Kunming, I had about 30 regular SS out of 60 on the register, but 110 turned in exam papers. Half of them scored less than 30% (and I had pretty much told them the answers and where to find them (in the PPTs I gave them). Lo and behold, I was told by management that the SS all had to pass, including the guy who got 9%.

The problems of students staying in the dormitories, not working and playing computer games has been in the Chinese news several times in recent years. Unless the authorities have got a grip of this recently, I doubt it will have changed.



Echo everything said by others.
Breakfast great and the serve from 8am. Most other places say 9am and they still are not ready.
Sandwiches are cheap 22-32, and really packed full of filling. We got some sandwiches for a day out, the only mistake I made was ordering two, as this was too much. These are seriously good sangars, and they are wrapped in alu foil.


In fairness to Metro, they are a wholesalers, and not really a supermarket. Hence the need for a card, which can be got around.

They have improved in the year I have been away. They now carry a more consistent range of imported foodstuffs and they also seem to have sorted out the mported milk supply.

They have a wider range of electrical appliances now, there is a coice of more than one toast. There is also a better range of seasonal non foods, like clothes, shoes, garden furniture and camping gear.


Quirky little store with all sorts of odditites in stock, which is a big plus for me. I see stuff I had forgotten I even liked.
A bit dearer than some other places, but any small independant trader will cost more than the nationals, even back home.
On the up side it will save you driving around the city, and that will save you money.
No shop is perfect, but this one is very good. A bit like those slightly odd little delis/specialty shops back in Blighty.


Mae culpa

I was getting mixed up with the other international clinic that was open on XiYuan Lu, but the block is now under re-development.

I blame the confusion on pre-senile dementia, and the resurection of a 3 year old thread.
