Courses soon

Recently, a friend of mine has been encouraging me to start metaphysics course. It was a good suggestion from my friend. Teaching is something which I have been wanted to do, after my graduation.

During my university days, I used to hold " unofficial tutorial" with my classmates, I enjoyed the process of imparting my knowledge with my classmates. After I have graduated, I almost wanted to apply for a lecturer position. So now, my love for teaching has re-kindled. Really looking forward to it.

If you are interested to attend any of my courses, do drop me an email.

Great Walls of China 万里长城

Here the photos of Great Walls of China....



We chose to descend from the great walls of China instead of climbing the great walls of China. We took cablecar to reach one of the "summits" and descend from there.
How did they build the great walls? To think they did not use the machinery at all? Amazing!



Stairs leading to modern man-made toilet.




Charge...... Soldiers pass this tunnel to defend?

WATCH OUT! Steep steps!



Luckily we chose the easy way out to descend, would be tough for us to climb those steep stairs!


See those white patch on the ground, those were snow! Yes, snow which were still melting.
A long way to go...
Foreground was our destination. The fortress!



Took us about an hour to complete the walk. We conquered great walls of China! Yes but in a different way. We descended.

Beijing Day 5





Is Shopping again! This time we shopped at this place known as Silk Street 秀水街. It was a great place for shoppers who love to bargain for the sake of bargaining.


In fact, I bargain most of my souvenirs there. I even bought myself a wonderful silk costume , the starting price was from RMB 360, I bargain till RMB 120 (S$24) with the help of a friend. There was a group of Chinese, they were watching us bargaining. He asked me did I bargain for the sake of fun? Guess what I answered him? Well... my answer was YES! :)
Anyway, if you happen to visit this place. Just remember to bargain for the thing you want to purchase, the rule of the game is, the final price should be always 1/3 of the starting price. Give a try when you visit that place. Have fun then!
