Wan Li Da Florist Address: 4 Shentian Road
(across from the park before the overpass just past the Xiamen Guesthouse)
Phone Card--U.S. to China--1.8
cents per minute!--While in the U.S. I
discovered this incredible rate. I called Bill and talked for 44 minutes
and it only cost me 78 cents U.S.! They charge 25 cents per call in addition
to the 1.8 cents but it is still incredibly cheap and they also have a
very minimal monthly charge. I think it is less than a dollar. You can
buy one with your credit card over the internet and give it to your friends
or family in the States and have them call you.
PT-1 Gold cards and MiCasa
cards seem to be the best. PT-1 Gold is good for 6 months but costs a
little more and the MiCasa card is cheaper but expires after three months.
Here is the web site address:
has a German brand of Corn Flakes that
my kids like. The price for a 375g box is about 15 rmb. The brand is HAHNE.
Great price and an easy breakfast!
The new Metro
is open in Huli! Metro is a big warehouse membership store like Sam's
Club or Costco. You don't have to pay to join, but you need to take your
passport if you are an expatriate, fill out a form and they will take
your picture and give you a card.
Take the harbor road towards the
airport. Look for the Toyota and Audi car dealerships and turn left. Make
a right at the first street and Metro is right there. Its so big its hard
their frozen Chicken Burger patties (Farmpride brand Original Singapore
Flavor) Not spicy and can be deep fried or baked in the oven on a cookie
sheet for 15-20 minutes. Freeze them and microwave them for a quick and
have wonderful outdoor patio furniture, barbeque grills, and motorized
bikes for sale just outside the main entrance in their parking lot.
"We went to Metro last night
and I was amazed at all they carry--even cottage cheese and sour cream!
You have to compare prices though because I found some things were not
cheaper then other stores. Walmart ground beef still looked better. But
if you enjoy shopping, make sure you take enough money and give yourself
plenty of time because it is a gigantic store!"
There's a new Trust-Mart
in town! And its a very convenient location for those of us who live near
the University because it is on Si Ming Street just down a couple miles
from the University. Actually it is between the Holiday Inn and Zhong
Shan Street. Just look for the Kentucky Fried Chicken sign and its right
Chiu--an amazing Chinese artist who was born a century ago on Gulangyu
and who was famous in the West (a friend of Georgia O'Keefe), was "rediscovered"
by Univ. of Washingtong Professor Kazmierz Z. Poznanski
(say that three times fast!). Click
