Trip to Wu Xi

Wow, I am in a new city in China again. This city is Wu Xi. 

Wuxi is an old city in Jiangsu Province, China.

No Good Byes to Tieling City

          After coming back from a spring vacation in South Korea I started packing again to go to the Philippines.  It still took me more than a week.  In the span of a week, I did a lot of things.  Well most of these are petty errands.  Anyways I would still like to share places I’ve been to. Hahaha!

          Teiling City is a small city where I worked and lived for more than three years. Hahaha! Can you imagine that, I was able to stay there for several years.  The place is small and can easily be navigated.  The people are friendly and accommodating.  I have met several Chinese families who would offer their homes for me to enjoy.  The city has several malls which I was able to enjoy and used all my hardly earned money ( hahaha! – Just joking! ) Another place in the city is the Long Shou mountain.  This mountain has a lot to offer for a small city.  It has a tail and a head.  It has an amusement park, a zoo and a lot of natures look.  Many trees are planted and a lot of flowering plants are around.  You’ll never run out of spot to take a picture.  The Longshou mountain is very popular for old people and family who walk around for exercise and to be in touch with nature.  There are also people who would go there to bring their love ones and play games and just walk hand and hand.

          There are also several schools from kindergarten to college, There is only one college though “The Teacher’s College”.  The citizen in this city work hard to invest in education.  I work in an academy for the English language.  This is not the only academy in the city. As of my knowledge there are at least 20 language schools.  Aside from language schools, there are for math, Chinese, and music lessons.  I think there are more but I still don’t know. 

          A few years ago when I was still new, the city mayor presented us with a miniature of a city.  This is the “New Teiling City”. At this time, there are some people, establishments and several schools being ready for the coming school year.  For the next few years it will be more progressive than today.  I’m hoping it would be a great place to start a life.

          Well, I won’t be very detailed now with what the city has.  I just want to say that I

           I’ll be coming back to this city, so to my friends, colleagues, parents of my students and most especially to my students, I’ll be back à hehehe è TO VISIT!

          To date, February 16, I left Tieling City.

          Please take some time to look at some photos of Teiling City.  &(^._.^)&

 

Shopping Galore!

February 5,2011
Second Entry

I dated this late because my friends and I went to this place at this time.  The place is called “Wangfujing”.  This is a place for shopping in branded shops and in the side streets.  This gives you a lot of choices for buying something for your friends or loved ones.  You can choose from the cheapest to the most expensive thing.  If you are good at bargaining in the side shops, you’ll save a lot but if you wish to just shop in big stores, you’ll get good things too.  This is a place for all kind of shoppers.

Day and night you’ll see people shopping, taking photos and just walking around enjoying the sites.  Aside from shopping there is one thing that I like in this place, the food too.    In this place, day and night too, they sell “exotic” food like scorpions, starfish, snakes, silkworm and others that I don’t know how to name.

I cannot upload pictures that I took right now because I am using a public computer in my hostel, but I am want to share a link that has some pictures that are useful.

HuTong Alleys!

February 5, 2011 Seoul Korea.
First Entry.

This is the entry for February 4th activities we have spent in Beijing before coming to Korea. On the fourth of February we spent the day going around the different alleys and shops that show the real Chinese life. I am so glad that my friends and I choose to look around instead of going to museums because we have seen and experience a lot of fun instead of just looking at pictures or realia of the past and their history. This is my fifth time in Beijing so I had been to those places and I suggest it is still a good place to visit for first timers.

We found a good hostel in one of the hutong alleys. We walked around and took lots of pictures. The streets are narrow and full of ancient history. The chinese people did a great job in preserving the areas. Actually we saw a lot of tourists also roaming around.

I am using a public computer so I can’t upload photos I have taken, but soon as I arrive home, I’ll share beautiful scenes and other great photos I took.
