BEIJING CHANGED !!



I managed to deviate from year end work crises to visit the capital of Republic of China and if it wasn't for an important meeting , i had no business to be here once again. My pioneer visit was almost 15 years ago and it was courtesy or a present from my parents for getting good SPM results and i realized that the city changed. There was no longer the non-hygienic toilet "hole" !!!



The transport system has developed extensively . Cheap comfy taxis , readily avaible buses and not forgetting the subway which i thought was cool and ahead of ours back in KL. No wonder the millions of bicycles across the streets has dissapeared from the scene.


It was a very short trip and just before flying back to KL, i paid the Forbidden City a visit. Frankly speaking, i will definitely be back here soon as i love China, chinese people and chinese food and i hope the younger generation learn more of world "lingua franca" to avoid miscommunications :)
