A Panzhihua-Lijiang Road Trip
Panzhihua, laying at the southernmost corner of Sichuan province, connects the southwest edge of Sichuan and the northwest wing of the butterfly-shaped Yunnan province. Taking a bus journey can be a rewarding way of discovering this part of the country as the road to Lijiang from Panzhihua traverses what we had heard is a magical landscape, thus we opted for going this route by coach. From the geography books of my schooldays years back, the descri ...

Transit in Panzhihua
The first time I heard the name “Panzhihua”, it was from the Sichuan Weather Forecast. Having the word ‘Hua’ (flower) in a city name sounded cool and impressive and preceded to picture this city carpeted with ‘Panzhihua’ flowers. Our newly refurbished dark army green 1960’s sleeper train from Chengdu slid into the Panzhihua station after a night’s journey on the over 600-kilometer track. Exiting from our carriage, we were immediately welcomed by the acrid stench o ...

Welcome to Macao
Part 1 “Macao used to be quaint.” “It’s a great place for photographing.” “It has some great food.” That’s what my fiancé told me before our one-day Macao trip. We took a train from Guangzhou to Zhuhai Gongbei Station, where we were to cross the border. Zhuhai’s Gongbei Station and the northern tip of Macao are side by side. We followed the streams of people, walked along the maze-like passageways and after 20 minutes, we were in Macao. “Well, hone ...

Limpy, The Egyptian King
​​“Meow! Meow!” a sad voice chirped from somewhere. As we hunted for our regular evening rental bikes, the distress call became louder. My boyfriend worked from home so he was ready for his ‘excursion’. “Meow meow”, “I’ve been hearing that all day” he commented, as we located our rental bikes on what we dubbed ‘Southeast Asian street’ “Meow, meow, meow…” I hopped on my bike and turned to confirm my boyfriend was doing the same, but alas there he was stooped over advancing ...

An Innocent Chinese Girl Goes to India for a Week
New comer Before getting on the plane to India, I became hesitant. Suddenly I felt like not going because I was envisioning mayhem in temples, strange smells, no public toilets, unsafe water, diarrhea, abandoned cows, and of course, the heat. But my mind struck that thought away like the way I would smash a mosquito against the mud-brick wall I grew up with in Sichuan. Four hours later, I landed in Singapore. ‘Getting closer’, I again became excited. After all, traveling in Indi ...

A Chengdu Day
​​I awoke on the sunshine flooded balcony. Rising up from my Hello Kitty towel that served as my make-shift bed, I witnessed the dawning of a new day in one of the most beautiful cities, at least in China, but perhaps in the world, Chengdu. My immediate view was of grey-bricked traditional Chinese architecture with modern skyscrapers acting as a backdrop, the prolific green of trees lining the streets and a rare but clear blue sky, all invigorating my spirit to seize the day. My ...

The Oven
Today is a bit cool. Rain has washed away much of the humidity. A gentle breeze soothes the travels. Travelling is so much more pleasant than only a day ago. Chongqing, the oven, a moniker that is well earned. I suppose temperatures could be hotter, or we could be in hell.Walking -- even for a few blocks -- made sweat flow. Quickly, my throat became parched. Water, I needed water, cold water--and lots of it. This happened to be a day selected for travelling ...

    It seems your boy is fonder of a stray cat than of you. Since pet animals contain many germs that might harm human body, I think it is good to leave them alone before a girl like you have your own babies. We can always have good relations with animals, but they should stay in a zoo or in the wild, not in our home.

    If you do not have enough money to cover the expense for a Europe tour, Macao is absolutely a good choice for enjoying flavor of Southern Europe. You can also relax yourself in the nice casinoes there, much better than Genting of Malaysia and elsewhere, as far as I know.
