Heritage Preserving X High Rises Buildings: Kinda-Balanced, KunMing

just like its weather,

the well-balanced Kunming


the past

Golden Horse Arch  金馬坊


the present

it was rebuild, after the destruction during war

Golden Horse Arch  金馬坊 (Reconstructed)

what’s around it today

Golden Horse Square, 金馬廣場


the heritage

Yuan Tong Temple 圓通寺


the fusion

Yunnan Provincial Museum 云南省博物院


the “invaders”

you name it,

Maserati showroom, Cartier, LV Gucci 

Coach outlet, Kun Ming


the tranquil

Garden in Yuan Tong Temple 圓通寺


the busy  

an electrical bike is the common mode of transport

mind you,

they are on the main road,

quite disregarding the traffic signals

on pedestrian walk,

sliding past you from the back, totally no sound at all

simply because,

it’s neither a bicycle nor a motorbike 

busy yet never get into each other way


the tall

Bell Tower 鐘樓


the even taller

and all over the town

apartments are all over


the sunny day

frankly speaking, I have not stepped my foot into

any of the huge malls 

major shopping area in KunMing


the cooling night

major shopping area in KunMing


the Emperor’s 

Jin Dian Temple 金殿


the commoners

old medicine hall, declared as heritage building 福林堂舊址


the yesterday

a statue of man going into town with his two donkeys


the tomorrow,

the Metro lines are still under construction

only two stations are ready, as of Mar 2013

Airport – Western Bus Station

however, the public buses are really convenient

the brand new Metro coach


the local breakfast/lunch/dinner delight

KunMing fav Noodle - 過橋米線


the where-ever-you-go-i-M-here-for-you

sigh…highly-saturated fast food outlets

McDonalds, whereever you go


the localization

they also serve

pork-chop rice, red bean pie, seaweed soup

KFC breakfast: Porridge & yao char kway


the exceptionally expensive,

simply because it’s HK style

and yet “super-relatively” small portion

HK duck rice


the budget style,

yet tasting pretty good and

coming in a wide variety of flavours

as low as 3 for 10 RMB at Carrefour

as high as 10 RMB each, at tourist attraction

as reasonable as 6 RMB each, at the airport


did I just exposed how much I have eaten these

spicy Instant Noodle
