Beijing Zoo and Forbidden City

Why is the girl strutting herself like that? hehe. Handcraft stones of 9 metre or something, i overheard.

Amazing detail on the garden chalet.

Chinese seemed to have affection for old trees. I remember bringing a communist party secretary to Malacca and he kept wanting to take picture with old trees. These couple examplifies that.

Peony in spring. Lie down on my back on the bench in the zoo.. like the rest of the population who lazed around in gardens and on grass. The wind added fizz to the whole feeling.

The carnivor section full of children making a racket. Left and right are the cages and the condition is not the greatest. The king

Inching closer as their daughter asked them to stand together. Rather cute moment as the adjusted their closeness.
Ah.. loads of people in Forbidden city.. and so huge...

Emperor - everybody wants to be one .. esp if one have 9000 concubine.


Mr Panda is very sleepy. He was licking his lips in boredom.

One of the only panda that is close enough and awake.I look sleepy in this picture instead.

Now i understand why ancient chinese royalty likes to sit by the pond and enjoy the scenary. wonderful stuff.

Another tranquil moment with family members.

The door to the zoo is rather huge and nice. The best pic out of many tries.

The similarity of both place? Keeping precious things in and other things out. :)

Hi Joseph,
Glad to see more shots up with much better focus and brightness plus quality. So you had enjoyed a wonderful trip to Beijing, do consider visit the city again after Olympic game in year 2008, by then, the city could have been more glamour and structured, with much better facilities and attactions. BTW, how high did u climbed up the Great Wall? I got a certificate when I reached the 3rd 'Guan' or entrance, not bad huh, for someone like me who never jog in the morning or any sports...

Cheers...
Swai

hahah. Siew Wai, you are not too old la. i did not get any certs because i guess we do not want to.we just happily walk around as fast as we can and then get back to the city. I guess it is more fun with the tobaggan and also the cable car. makes life more easy. hehe.

Uses the same camera phone but this time with more lighting. i guess that is the difference.
