I haven't had mince tarts since Christmas 2009.


One further question for you.

Is ready made pastry available anywhere for those of us with no competence in that area?

Forums > Living in Kunming > Air quality

It's not unusual to see parking attendants who sit outside all day long, having a can with a wood fire for a bit of warmth.

I've had 4 trips out of China and 3 back in since I turned 70.

I'll have that 4th back in another week.
I can walk under my own power so that would make a difference.

I did notice quite a lineup of attendants with wheelchairs at the door of our plane on arrival in Hong Kong 2 weeks ago.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Anyone here gotten a Chinese Green Card?

Just to confuse things a little, the new version of the residence permit for foreigners, which my wife got because she's a caregiver for her sister, is green.

But it's not a green card despite it's color.

The PSB also told her there is a rule change coming in October which would permit her, as a returning Chinese over the age of 60 to apply for permanent residence (the real green card).

She's going to check that out, then if she gets it will then see if I also qualify based on marriage (not in China).


No results found.




Had my first ever visit to Slice of Heaven last night for a group party. Barbara recognized me as a newcomer and immediately came to welcome me and introduce herself.

While speaking with her at the counter, a server walked past with a pizza for one table. The aroma immediately caught my attention. It was awesome.

Our group shared 4 different pizzas. All were amazing. I think the sauce really makes the difference since it was very flavourful. I also put back to cups of cappuccino. I guess they must have fixed problems noted in other reviews because I found it to be quite good.

If I lived closer I would be a regular here.


After 14 months in Kunming I've finally found a restaurant that knows how to cook a steak! The last time I had a decent steak was a year ago in Chang Sha.

We found My Favor because of the ad here on Go Kunming. I was not disappointed. The restaurant if very much "upscale", sharing the 6th floor of the Brilliant Plaza with other restaurants that it's Chinese, Japanese and Korean equals, so we've found a great place to go for special occasions.

Being non-smokers we really appreciated the separate no smoking room. The decor is quite elegant and the entire place is spotlessly clean (even polished where it should be).

We were given separate menus for food, beverages and deserts. There was enough selection to satisfy anybody but not so overwhelming that you couldn't decide what to have. The price range was also varied, ranging from modest to a lot.

I chose my always favorite beef tenderloin. Although the menu didn't state it, the dish was served with a choice of the five soups that were offered. My wife stuck with the pasta (she's a noodle nut).

The only downside came in the timing. Our soups arrived together, but my wife had finished her main course before mine arrived.

The serving staff did not hover over us but were quickly available when we wanted something, however, we were the only customers so I can't comment on what service might be like at busy times.

Overall I was very satisfied and might make this a place for a once a month treat.
