China Travel Bucket List

Travel, travel and more travel. That’s all I want in my life at the moment. However, the reality is I can’t really have it all. How disappointing! But I can certainly make a list of places I want to go. Get ready and wait for the opportunity to present itself. If you don’t know, I am originally from China. Although I had my fair share of travelling in China, there are still so many places I haven’t had the chance to visit. Here is my China travel bucket list at the moment. I have travelled to some places, like Shanghai (上海), Beijing (北京), Guangzhou (广州), Hangzhou(杭州),Suzhou (苏州), Si Chuan (四川), Fenghuang, Huangshan (Yellow Mountain) , The Terracotta Army, Xi An, and so on. Therefore, these places won’t be on my list anymore. Potala Palace in Tibet – Tibet has been on my list for as long as I can remember. I still haven’t had the chance to go.

Happy Mother’s day!

Mother’s day is just around the corner. I want to take the opportunity to wish all the mothers and mothers-to-be a very happy Mother’s day! Wish you enjoy a day full of love and happiness! xoxo I have had this idea to write a short post about my mom for a long time. This is probably the best timing to do it. She has been a great mom to me. She encourages, inspires and supports me in my whole life. I feel very blessed to have her as my mom and my best friend. Well, I am not gonna talk about how she has been a good mother to me. I want to tell you a short story about her retirement. 🙂 My mom is probably the most hard-working woman I have ever known (no exaggeration there!). She has dedicated all her time to our family and her job. At the age of 70, she finally convinced herself it was the time to retire. We had a little talk before she made the final decision. She was …
