Forums > Living in Kunming > How to please a man

I would be very surprised if this is not a troll.

If it is not a troll, what I would suggest is that the most important sexual organ is the brain. Maybe, he just isn't interested in you that way.

Maybe he is trying the 'friends with benefits' thing, which not everyone is cut out for.
Especially true if this is the beginning of your relationship.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Should you study Chinese?

I do take exception to the comment about arrogance.

I don't speak, hear, read or write Chinese to any degree. I can survive on oral Chinese perhaps. Not because I am arrogant.
Arrogance assumes that one thinks English is a better language and that a person won't lower themselves to speak the local lingo.
I have failed to learn Chinese because I am crap at learning languages, it is not my talent. I was crap at learning French in school, I was crap at learning German when I lived in Germany. I am crap at learning Chinese now I am in China, I spent one semester full-time studying Chinese in Shanghai University, and another semester at Tongji. Do you see a pattern? I do and it has nothing to do with arrogance.

What I do find arrogant is when people, who have a talent for learning languages, don't realize it is a talent and then judge those who lack that competence.

I had someone once tell me that most of the Brits they worked with in Europe spoke the local language. I then pointed out that it may well be that those who are not good at languages are far more likely to stay at home, and that those who do go overseas are more likely to be those with a talent for language. They, on reflecting on their own abilities and previous strengths in school, agreed that I may have a point.

I hate it when people get judgmental, as if they are trying to claim some moral high ground.

You are better at languages than me, but that does not make you superior to me, get over it. I am certain that I can do things that others cannot, but language isn't one of them.

Humbly yours

Forums > Living in Kunming > Clubs in Kunming


Going to a nightclub to hook up and try to get laid is a global phenomenon. In most parts of the world people go to bars to get loaded or get laid.
Nothing to do with tourism. I go to bars for the same reasons at home or away.

It's nothing to do with race. When I am in America I shag mostly America girls, when in France I mostly shag French girls, when in Scotland I mostly shag Scottish girls, when in China...
I see a pattern here, do you?

Swedish design ideas, kunming build quality. i have bought lots of ikea stuff in the past, the furniture at #11 are poor facsimiles of genuine item. Yes stuff is affordable, but poorly made and overpriced in my opinion. we took a good look around and looked closely at build quality and walked away.


It might be worth identifying which Prague venue you are reviewing.

When I first arrived in Kunming I did a tour of Wenlin Jie. I did't like the look of Prague.
More recently I have used Prague in Beichen a lot and I like it.

Ref the comment @nonsecond about being made sick from raw apple, WTF?
