I’m back in Singapore for the summer holidays, and of course it sounds funny when we say it in Singapore, because it IS summer all the time but not holidays all the time. Back in Beijing, it’s the first part of summer and temperatures have already soared to an occasional 40 degrees Celsius. However,… Continue reading Same sun but different.
I haven’t blogged for a while because I forgot my password. Since then, autumn has passed and winter just arrived. I had vacuum packed all my long sleeves, long pants and thicker wear when summer started, because it was possible and normal to survive in tees, shorts and capris at most.

Surprisingly, Shunyi area (5th ring cluster where the majority of international… Continue reading 3 weeks in Beijing
