Well, technically speaking, it’s 2, since she will arrive on 16 March 2011 midnight.
I’m talking about my mom. She’s coming over. 🙂
I am excited! Though I saw my mom last February when I had my vacation in Manila, still, a familiar face is always a welcome treat. And it’s my mom!
Although my mom visited in Bejiing in 2004, I told her she should re-explore the place again. Though the sights are still the same, i.e. Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, Great Wall, and so on, but there have been a lot of changes ever since China hosted the Olympics in 2008. I wish I could’ve seen how and what it was like in the 70s or even the 80s. I am only speaking in comparison to what my mom’s experience when she travelled here 7 years ago, and during my stay here as a student in 2007. Knowing China, a lot can change even in the span of 6 months, what more 7 years.
Anyhow, I am supposed to write a report (which I’ve been trying to do for the past weeks or so). I have the draft ready, but my mind is clearly drifting, drifting, and drifting away…..
I am excited. Now, time to hit my vacuum cleaner and tidy up the house again. 😉
