looking at those pictures of 'BJ' makes me realise how much I dislike the urban planning there.

Yup, i get a sense of hopelessness whenever i try to cross a road in beijing the roads are way too wide and there are way too many barricades. Me and my friends made a joke that even Liu Xiang cant jump over those barricades.

And i look at beijing's huge buildings in awe.. just amazing/

Hah, I bet everyone would have the same feeling each time they come to Beijing, even including me. But later on the hopelessness and anxiety were quelled fast the moment I got used to and love this robust but yet clean-cut and graceful city.

I thought Shenyang was the most manly city in the north, but I found I was wrong, Beijing is the real beefcake
