60 does seem to be a magic number.

My wife told me she was able to get health insurance because she has a Chinese ID.

She got it before age 60 and it's supposedly good for life.

However, they will not issue new insurance for people beyond the age of 60, probably because they might use it and cost the insurance company some money.

When I got the code second time around my wife tried to enter the Chinese panel for me as she had done last time.

This time up it was asking for my arrival details (I came last year) including flight number and seat number.

It also wanted my future departure date which doesn't exist, but it wouldn't pass without it.

Next I switched to attempting to use the English version again.

After I entered my phone, name, age and passport number it immediately jumped to the previous green screen.

This is too confusing!

Yeah, I read that one and have already got my date extended to late May, but many places may not be open by then.
So far China has only announced that one two month extension (that I've seen).

It’s getting more confusing by the minute. Just arrived at my new community and was asked to scan a QR code. Instead of popping up my all clean green screen it gives me the same health questions again. It looks like a different code!

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.
