summarizing beijing.

June 24, 2007

beijing is not my home anymore. i can feel it’s foreign presence. it is cold. it has lost its warmth. it had forgotten its roots and is seemingly trying to imitate metropolitan, capitalists cities. its pollution is unbearable, its people is still the same.
beijing had cleverly found its niche and advertised itself from that. yet, beijing is oblivious about several things that makes it uniquely beijing.
its hutongs. its broken english. its fake branded bags. its cheap drinks. its rou-chuanrs. its fascination with mandarin-speaking foreigners. all of those that makes it truly BEIJING.

highlights; meeting my homies
downsides; breaking my camera, being tired all the time, the pollution, and always ending up thinking about KL.

    Btw that picture would look real cool with a tighter crop around the center.

    @izuan: i was writing as if “it” was the subject and therefore “it’s” signifies the possession. oh well i changed it already anyways
