Reminiscing About Food in Beijing

I went to China on a group packaged holiday back in June 2018 and I only got the chance to sort through my photos now because I was super busy at work. Scrolling through my photos, I saw the photos of food and it is making me missing China so much!! I was actually going to Inner Mongolia, China, and we had the choice of … Continue reading Reminiscing About Food in Beijing

China Travels: Temple of Heaven (天坛)

The Temple of Heaven (天坛) was another major highlight of my tour of Beijing. I thought that the Forbidden City (紫禁城/故宫) was massive but the Temple of Heaven is about 7 times larger at 2.73 square kilometres. HOLEY SHEET!! Also, technically, the Temple of Heaven was supposed to be an extension/part of the Forbidden City but it became a separate property in the end. I’m not very … Continue reading China Travels: Temple of Heaven (天坛)

Some of you might recognise the places in the photo above from some of … Continue reading China Travels: Forbidden City (紫禁城/故宫)

I’ll get around to it soon. I just need to mope around for a bit more. For the last few days since the tragic news broke, I have spent some time reflecting … Continue reading Life, Death and The Legend of Corpse Herding / Walking (赶尸)
