China trip

We went to Beijing on July, it's summer in there and the weather is surely hot, it's quite an experience, I like their culture and art, it is amazing and very details.

 
 :: jade museum: they have this card that have a chinese character written for each western name :)

 
:: Great Wall: Mika's drawing. We only finished the 1st post.. *_*' 

 
:: summer palace, there's an old man that is really captured my attention, and there he is.. :)

 
:: Lung; dragon statue at the airport- beautiful!
:: Summer palace again, this place really got something, something magical inside every corner, it's old trees, old buildings.. rather creepy but beautiful..


















:: Cute little cheongsam isn't it, and I finally got my name on the stamp carved right on it, well the stamp really not as neat as the samples ( like on the right side on the photos) when I try it at home, but I'm quite happy :)

And a little bit tips :
1. For shopping in China: don't ask the price, only if you really get into it, otherwise they will holding your arms tightly asking you to bargain until you feel uneasy and buy the thing. Always check your shopping after they wrapped it, they usually switch the broken things or give you the wrong size in purpose. Just be extra careful.

2. There's a lot of yelling and spitting in China. They don't mean to be rough by yelling at you- it's only their custom, and about the spitting- it is all because there's a lot of dust in China, taking by the wind from the Yellow River.

3. And the cons goes to the public toilet, just be prepare to bring a lot and lot of tissue... *_*'
