Nova Heart’s Beautiful Boys MV

Unadulterated brilliance from one of my favorite Chinese bands. Any MV that features a chuanr stall is definitely my kind of MV. (h/t NeochaEDGE)

First time on the Great Wall

A quick post before I leave for Shanghai this evening, especially as I’m not done with packing just yet !

J finally made it to the wall after having lived in China for more than three years. While I’m not sure if I would recommend anyone else to head to Mutianyu as we did (too shiny and restored), the wheeled toboggan was certainly quite fun (could have been more fun if they don’t have staff policing speed limits all the way down the mountain) but that’s quite beside the point isn’t it ?

Oh, we also managed to explore a section of the wall which was off-limits to tourists, overgrown with weeds and wild flowers complete with crumbling walls… a secret garden of sorts ! That was actually pretty awesome. Otherwise, my favorite section of the Great Wall of all times has still got to be that great workout of a trek from Jinshanling to Simatai.

The last of the series. Thank you C and M for having us at your wonderful wedding. Hanggai was amazing ! It was lots of silly hilarious fun hanging out with friends who are now mostly living in different countries. Here’s to one more lovely Beijing memory for keeps !

A sure-fire way to make boys hate on you. Tried and tested. Unfortunately more to come next Friday on the other side of the world. Wish me luck.
