M.I.A.

woah....


it has been that long since i last blogged! i had a long streak of 'not in the mood'! i just didnt want to talk or blog about anything.

so many things happened - good and bad. well, mostly bad, real bad. that pushed me over the edge to not blog! i know its weird because most people want to express themselves especially during trying times but me, i just curled up and went on silent mode.

now i got that sllighbt tick to blog about some of the things that have happened in my life. some if not all.

the problem is i just dont know where to start.

danm it!

oh well, this blog would be a good start i guess. cant straight away spill out all my gutts! hehehe..

Beijing - Part 4

SHOPPING HAVEN


Beijing is a definite shopping haven!! I LOVE shopping here! We only get to go to 3 places out of numerous heavenly places to shop your heart out!

Silk Market

The variety of boots here is....OMG! To die for! Its like I am in shoe heaven!!

I bought 2 UGG boots here. Before you jump to the idea that its counterfeit, ITS NOT! Its original, straight from the factory here, and therefore its freakingly CHEAP!



PEARL MARKET

We forgot to take pictures inside the market. To best surmise it is the place to go to buy cheap knick knacks as souvenirs for your loved ones at home!


We took a coffee break at this cute lil al fresco cafe...

...and this quite cute Chinese waiter! Diane was smiling and we were both all smiley and saying: Ni How Ma.. ahahahahahahah!!


Next is Panjiayuan Market

It is an old district of shopping haven for antiques. The architecture is... wow!

This is a pure fur shop. I know, I know its wrong but OMG! They are exquisite!! Check out Diane with that REAL stuffed wolf!




Well thats just a bit of the shopping nirvanas in Beijing! Cant wait to go back there again! Yes, I am going back there again - TO SHOP!!

Beijing - Part 3

Tiananmen Square

Yes, here I am at the biggest and most historical infamous square in the world!! And it is REALLY HUGE! We didnt even know we were on the square! The four side of this square are four huge historical buildings! Thats how big it is!





On this gigantic square, there are 2 HUGE LONG HD flat screens!! WOW!

These are the soldiers that were everywhere in Beijing! I feel so safe!


These next 3 pictures are the official flag lowering ceremony. They do this everyday!! Superb!



Met some locals there and they speak English. They were friendly and had a very interesting conversation. Chinese are nice and warm people!

And this is how it looks like at night - beautiful! This is the only time when its cool to be square! ehehheeh...

Beijing - Part 2

Sorry it took so long but tonnes of things happened and lots to do! Well, better late than never eh?

Next part of pictures from Beijing would be my historical trip to The Great Wall of China!! Yes! I did it!! I actually went up there!

It was breathtakingly beautiful!! No words to do it justice! So i shall let the pictures speaks for itself!

This is how i reach to the top! Its damn fun!!

This is the name of the place where we entered the Great Wall.

This is the beginning of the journey! And I am already speechless with the spectacular view!


Me with my loved ones going through this fabulous adventure! But my other BFF is not with us! Miss her through out the entire experience! Alyssa - wish you were there with us! :P


Check out the first post of this side of the wall.


The architecture is beautiful, even on a mere outpost!

Check out the amount of stairs!! and this is not even a quarter of it!!



Check out the scenery behind me! Postcard picture perfect!

Found a very cool furry friend up there in the mountains with the majestic Great Wall! And can u believe it its stray?? I soooo wanna take it home!! And its so friendly!

My favorite moment - i am so happy that i can do this historical journey for me with my dear hubby! I dont think i could have done it without him! Thanks Sayang!

Ok, I hope this video would be able to fully give some idea of what its like being up there! Enjoy!
