RE: Need help
I have been in Kunming for six month now and I have one or two tips related to study in this city. Some schools can be very dodgy, so I'll recomend you in any case to try them first before registering into any. They really need the students, so they all let you try first.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any specific question.
Travel Tips for Kunming
Thanks to my friend for bringing us around
I would like to thank Mr Xian Feng for bringing us around Kunming and the nearby attractions nearby such as Stone Forest and Jiuxiang Caves. Mr Xian is a friendly local and has given me a good impression of the Yunnan people.
Umbrella is a good-to-have (april to oct)
umbrella and raincoat. Kunming's rainy season starts from April and ends only in Oct.
Kunming can be cold when it rains. And it is normal to have rain, sunshine, rain all within a day.
So prepare to wear layers of clothing, so you can peel off or put on depending on the temperature.
Gingko nuts in Kunming
All kinds of stuff. Gingko nuts is a bargain here. They are ultra-fresh (unlike the mouldy look you may get in many malaysian store) and of good quality. About 18 RMB to 25 RMB per KG, depending on the size, and the poshness of the shop/stall.
Yunnan Must: Herbal Chicken & Ham Steamboat
This specialises in steamboat.
The soup base is made of yunnan ham and chicken cooked with yunnannese herbs. The major herb is Dian Ma, the root/rhizome of some plant.
Health benefits : good for weak stomach, blood circulation, migrane.
It's typical yunnannese eatery settings. You can choose to sit at a proper table (4 person per table), or half-squat on the real low chairs and dine at the real low table.
The stove is right on the table, and the gas cylinder is under the table.
Not much space to move around. All the furnitures are jam packed together. Sequence of eating the Steamboat :
1) Boil the soup (with ham and chicken and herbs, which are prepared by the kitchen and served in a big pot)
2) Turn fire to small. Drink first the soup
3) Make dip with the various condiments served, and pour a little soup to the dip. The surprise includes fermented tofu (furu) which is very very authentic (well for malaysians at least).
4) Eat the ham and chicken with dip.
5) Add the vege and noodles (you get to order from the menu - in chinese) and start boiling again
6) Eat the vege (and soup)
The soup is a little salty, but the savoury taste is just right to fight off the cold in autumn/winter.
The soup base costs RMB 38. The rest is up to your order. Vege costs between RMB 1 to the RMB 5 for the expensive mushrooms. Two of us went and spent RMB 27 each.
This guy originally came from Xinjiang & he's a Chinese Muslim. It's strange at first to talk to a Chinese who's a Muslim. Anyway, he was trying to convince me Muslim are good people while I was waiting for my order. Nice guy. Skewers of barbecued beef & mutton. Hmmmm, YUMMY! @US$0.20.
