It’s a pretty long holiday and I really enjoy it very much although I didn’t go outside Beijing the whole holiday. Then, tell you what I did and where I went, which was not as what I had scheduled it previously.
I did go to Shunyi, the suburbs of Beijing and spent a whole day there. It was the first day. The spot was kind of a leisure park. We strolled among the green trees, camping on the green meadow. We kicked shuttlecock and flew kites. We didn’t have anything in the countryside. After fishing a while, we returned to downtown for dinner.
Then , we went to Beihai Park and went boating for some time. When the night fell, we had dinner at a Hakka-style restaurant, a frequented place of mine with my customers. It was nice enjoying the tasty food beside the neon-lit lake, with the noises and melodies from the bars around your ears.
We didn’t go to the concerts and postponed it till the end of this month, when a famous dance show called “Si Lu Hua Yua”(丝路花雨）will be staged at the Big Egg. It is a show from my hometown province featuring the long history of Dunhuang Grottos. So, it’s worthwhile to be there enjoying something from the place I was born.
For the rest of the holiday, I mainly stayed home simply relaxing myself. It was great staying indoors, doing house chore, doing some reading, listening to music, or even taking a nap. It is a time to slow the fast-paced life style a bit, and enjoy some real leasure time of life.
A plain holiday is over, and there’s tons of work waiting for me ahead. So, buckle up…….and here we go!
