Hi Bloach. Yep still going strong! We'd love for you to come down and meet the team.

And to everyone else we're always looking for new players - girls and guys. No experience is necessary and you'll have a lot of fun!

Also on November 25 Chengdu are coming to town to play us in a match - I'll post the details on Gokunming soon. Hometown support is always appreciated!

The second place Haali is referring too is called 1318. It is on the 13th floor of the hong cheng guang chang building (right behindthe McDonalds) on xia hua yuan.

Its really good! They have a good range of old and new board games and card games and private rooms for playing in too

I bought my Android phone in China. Unfortunately there is no Google Play store. Is there any other way to get Pleco or for that matter Google Play?

I read that if your phone doesn't come installed with Google Play, you can't add it in later...

I hadn't looked at the photos before I posted them. Having done so they're nothing special. I was at Lugu Lu recently and it really is beautiful - I just hope it lasts. It's got a way to go but the warning signs of a mass tourism ala Lijiang are all in place



The Flying Tigers are kicking off a new season this Saturday (September 14) with a social game of touch rugby.

Everybody is welcome and no experience is necessary.

The club will provide beer at the match. There will be an after-party at O'Reilly's Irish pub after the game.

Contact the club at [email protected] for more information.


Fantastic place. Live sports as per promised with football, rugby, basketball, golf and so on.

For the food, I've only had the cheeseburger so far and it was pretty damn good. Better yet it came with proper hot chips and not crisps.

Friendly, knowledgable staff as well.


I went to The Box today to try the pizza. I've been several times before for beers and enjoy the ambience. Sitting upstairs I heard the alarm on my scooter outside which wasn't visible through the window and running to the stairs I nailed my head on the low ceiling. This is NOT a condemnation of said ceiling. Rather I was completely humbled by how out of the way the two ladies on duty went to help me. One of them even went to their own home to get me some medicine. I knew about the ceiling (and the name of the bar is a pretty good clue) so I blame no one but myself for smashing my head.

The pizza, incidentally, was fantastic with an authentic base. It was very light on the toppings however
