Cherry Blossoms

The day I went to Bei Hai Gong Yuan, was the day I first saw Cherry Blossoms. They were beautiful. Every last petal of them. When seen from afar, these lovely flowers make a beautiful picture. I am going to let pictures speak for themselves. Look at that – White Cherry Blossoms. Macro mode The pink ones! Look at the colour… pinkish white… All together now… *SIGH*

My Chinese Adventure – Part Three (Beijing)

Hello Hello! Day three of my wonderful trip to Beijing brought me to picturesque Bei Hai Park. Today I had no one to bring me around. So it was quite scary! The chinese people are quite impatient and loud-speaking. They seemed rude and unfriendly to me. Maybe they didn’t mean to portray that since I guess their culture is such. Anyhow, I was excited and scared all at the same time. This is the first cab I took on my…

Jin Shan Cheng

Ma La Steamboat! In the morning, I went to the Bei Hai Gong Yuan (will be posting about this soon). And the previous days at Beijing was REALLY cold. I was super excited about the fact that I’m going to eat Steamboat! A friend recommended me to this place so I decided to pop by. The restaurant actually serves more than just Steamboat. They also serve Chong Qing dishes. To be frank, I’m not a fan of Ma La Steamboat.…

Lime Flea Market – 23rd Feb

Yes, a very long overdue post. My best buds and I had some stuff to clear and here we are – LIME Flea Market. “Some stuff to clear” were actually clothes that we bought online and the size/cutting wasn’t right when it arrived. Sigh. I am so ashamed about the $300 worth of clothes that I bought online. Every single one of those are brand new and well, don’t fit me. So, to the Flea Market for some yelling and…

Boredom leads to many a things

I did it! Yes people. I quit. I walked right up to my boss with my pristine white envelope in my right hand, gave him a sickly sweet smile and dropped the letter full of sweet-nothings onto his desk. He looked at me in shock. I leaned over and whispered “it’s over”. And then I sat down in front of him, crossed my legs and looked at him straight in the eye and told him that I am a valuable…

Wang Ping – 6 course meal dinner!

Day 2 at Beijing, I had dinner at this high-class restaurant called Wang Ping. So damn expensive, but the following pictures will show you how damn delicious it was! It was a 6 course meal. Something like TAO’s in Singapore, only difference is, the food is of a higher quality. There were several categories (6 courses) and within each category, there were quite a variety of items to choose from! I was excited to begin choosing! The first course was…

Yummy Potato Chips!

Some big brands are available in most parts of the world. I especially love exploring the local supermarkets in different countries to see what’s on the shelves! I went crazy in China’s supermarkets. In China, LAYS’s potato chips are quite different from what we have in Singapore. One of the things I love about travelling is checking out new flavors of familiar products. It’s true that they can’t have one standard set of flavours across the world (imagine local china…

Beijing Roast Duck

I recommend you eat good food!! When you join a tour in Beijing, the tour groups will usually bring you to this place called Quan Ju De Roast Duck. But I can guarantee you that that’s not the best.
