1 day ’til arrival

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. 😉

Carpe Diem!


About wonderfullywendy

My name is Wendy, currently deployed and living in the capital of the country with half of the world's population, China. I've been living on my own for 3 years now, counting the time I spent as a student here in China. After going back to my country, I was sent back to Beijing to assume my post and stay here for 6 years. I've been here for 2. years, and I look forward to more meaningful years ahead. I'm happiest when I travel, eating, hanging out with my bosom friends, drinking a good and hot cup of coffee with a book, and just exploring the city and taking photos of whatever catches my eye. I enjoy solitude, but I also enjoy observing people and their dynamics and try the best that I could to capture it in my camera. Since I sometimes (well, more often) tend to be forgetful, I hope this blog would serve as a my memory-bank, to enable me to document my travels, photos, thoughts, experiences, and projects that I am working on. What's one thing I truly want to learn? To cook proper food. :D So, I hope in this blog, I get the chance to document whatever I can, whenever I can. Enough said. :P
