Nude Bird

Moving forward from fashion posts, this lovely month i will be blogging about travel & living (under AWOL – Absence W/Out Leave, lol).


City : Beijing 8)


i wore a nude pink dress top from Forever 21, egyptian princess earrings from Diva Australia, with my favourite pair of over-sized sunnies. ♥


iPod loaded with great music is essential for any air rides to me! Agree?


Learned Spanish through an audio language trainer with the companion of some light refreshments from the airplane~


Always bring along a sweater and drink lots of H2O / juices when flying!!!

You never know when it gets cold and though going to the restroom on the plane can be a hassle, your body gets easily dehydrated when you’re 36,000 feet off the ground!


This is my lonely travel log after Catcher in the Rye got stolen by Singaporean customs. Bastards!

Tips : How to identify fake China 50 & 100 RMB notes.


1. Move the note up & down under some light. The number 100 should change from green to shimmery / glossy green if it’s a real note.

Or if you don’t have light, try this.


2.  The surface of this red shirt in a real note has texture. Rub your finger on it. If it has a rough surface, your note is real. Yay!


Finally reached Tian Jin airport and took a long bus ride to Beijing city.


After battling with the mad jam, when we arrived it was dinner time. The food SUCKS! So no picture of food today. Only this live performance from the restaurant that was as bad as the food, to be honest.


Hotel Motel Holiday Inn~


So that was the Beijing : Day 1ne for me. Good experience.

Trust me, more interesting China posts coming up! Anyone here been to Beijing before? 🙂

    Oh, and in Beijing, do visit the Drum Tower (Gu Lou).If you are visiting the Great Wall, please don’t visit the one with the cable car. Oh, and MUST TRY– The best Peking Duck in Beijing, Restaurant QuanJude. Just asked around, most people can direct you to it.
