Welcome to Beijing!

The city is a really nice place. Like what freakyqi said its cheap to live here. I came from Manila and I've been here for two months.

I don't know any Chinese except  "xiexie" when I first came here but after two months, I've learned enough Chinese to haggle...
I'm not in denial, I'm just selective about the reality I choose to accept.

hmm...
be aware of the traffic when you walk outside.
drivers don't usually give way to pedestrians in China.



i agree with you. it's not  just in BJ, anywhere is same in china.

It's easy to get around, if you don't mind taking the bus... They use bus cards here so as long as I know where my stop is, I usually don't get lost...

It is true that drivers don't give way to pedestrians, so you have to be very careful crossing streets.
