Forbidden City. It has four entrance, each is made for different level of people (according to Chinese interpretation)

This place is called Summer Palace. Did you see the water has become ice? The temperature is -6. I love this place, it is so serene.

This is the oldest mosque in Beijing. The name is Niu Jie Mosque, believed to have been around since year 996, but later was reconstructed.

I think this is similar to slum housing area. This can be seen when you're on top of the Great Wall of China. I think it is somewhat cool to live in a house near one of the seven wonders of the world.

The signage with translation, which is very convenient for non-Chinese tourists.

Climbing the Great Wall of China. It takes lots of stamina.

A day at Snow World. Get ready to fall down many times.

Although the people speak no English, Beijing trip was fun. Speak with body language, that is all it takes. The city is indeed very very big, explains the number of populations. And I noticed the roads are very large, each lines are wide. On working days, the traffics are bad. Really bad it slows everything down. And because I was here during winter, man it is freezing cold. I think it is colder as compared to my winter trip to Seoul, Korea last two years. But too bad, the snow isn't falling when I was in Beijing.

So yeah the tourist guide, his name is Ah Liang who happened to be a localman with a high proficiency of Indonesian language, takes us to many places of interest famous among tourists. To name a few, Forbidden City, Ti An Men Square, Great Wall of China, Summer Palace, Snow World, Niu Jie Mosque and a few others. We moved by a coach and later walk during arrival at these places. My most favorite place would be Summer Palace. An imperial garden with Chinese architecture. The place gives me some sort of calm feeling. And not to forget, The Great Wall which is very very long you can't possibly finished walking on it in one day. I've been to one of the seven wonders of the world. One down, six more to go? InsyaAllah.

What about the food? I love Beijing Muslim food, it is somewhat almost similar to Malaysian cooking. Most of the food are fried. Fried eggs, fried vegetables. But tell you what, in most meals, 7 out of the 10 dishes served are veges. It's true, no bluffing. So if you're not so fond of veges, screw it. You might end up eating rice with only fried eggs. Hahaha.

I miss you

I miss you so badly that I feel your presence every second of my breath.
Since when did I started to feel this way?
I have no idea it makes me wondering.
I have not a clue it left me questioning.

I see you when I close my eyes.
I feel you even when you are somewhere else.
I hear you even when you are not talking.

When did you become so special?
When did your voice becomes a cure?
When did you lived in my heart?

Will you ever stay?

I need you.
