Beijing's Vibrant Offerings...How to find the balance?

Popularity 2Viewed 831 times 2014-4-20 15:35 |System category:News| balance

There are many "temptations" in life.  

Hang out with friends, meet new friends, join an extracurricular club, learn calligraphy or martial arts, study Chinese, attend extra classes, make some money teaching, hang out in the mall and window shop or people-watching, check out the latest high-priced items in branded stores, visit tourists attractions, attend the theater...  

What other activities do you love Beijing offers?

I believe this vibrant way of life is often under-represented when Beijing is portrayed in the Media.  It's such a great city for being able to not only offer, but nurture these concoction of goodies.

How do you guys find the balance?  How do you take it all in? #reallystartingtofallinlovewithbeijing

Spending time in both cities, I used to say : I live in Shanghai and exist in Beijing. That is probably a little unfair on Beijing!  I'll add: watching live soccer from England on TV in Sanlitun. Of course, it can more easily be done in Shanghai.

    It took me sometime to gather the courage to dive at my first cliff.  just as much as it took me some time to "commit" to a serious relationship.  Malerwei, the analogy I tried to make is the ability to "take the dive of no return" is just like getting into a serious relationship i.e. marriage.  For non-experts i.e. first-time divers, one does not know how beautiful or graceful the whole episode will be.  But the trust that all will work out is the key.  Im not married yet, so I guess we'll have to see if my theory stands once I do hehe.  

    Appreciate the comments all!
