Memories of Beijing

As a conclusion to our series on our vacation in Beijing, Autumn 2007, we bring you this special entry of memories of Beijing. Never-seen-before pictures of K-popped! at famous tourist spots in China. It is also a guide on what's cool and where to go when you are visiting Beijing.


Girls will be girls! We had an awesome time shopping.
K-popped! at
Wangfujing Street -
Beijing's Modern Shopping District.


K-popped! Trio attempting a complicated "Saranghae"
pose at the grounds of
The Temple of Heaven (Tian Tan).
"Tian Tan" is China's largest existing complex of
ancient sacrificial buildings. Occupying 273 hectares,
it is three times the area of the Forbidden City.

K-popped! Trio shouts "Hwaiting!" while staring in awe at the
gigantic
Hall of Prayer for Good Harvest at
The Temple of Heaven
.

K-popped! Trio were so excited to visit the world's largest LCD screen display
at
The Place, they couldn't help but jump for joy!

Liz and Rooster posing as shy concubines at the Imperial Palace
grounds of the
Forbidden City.

K-popped! Trio got excited again and couldn't help
but jump in the
Forbidden City. Whoopee...we can't believe
we are actually at the Imperial Palace
which was
home to the Emperors of China for almost
five centuries. Cowabunga!

After all the funny antics, K-popped! Trio had to hide behind
ancient giant urns to escape
Imperial Palace
guards who were patrolling the premises.

NG: K-popped! Trio attempts a synchronized "Saranghae"
but obviously one of them was not in the loop.

Ahh, finally we got it right. Saranghae readers!
K-popped! Trio sends you love from the Imperial Palace, China.

"We know where Korea is. This way!", says the K-popped! Trio.
Even while in awe of the magnificent view from

The Great Wall of China
at Badaling,

we frantically started to point towards
South Korea
in the horizon.

So readers, which is your favourite photo?

kpop_rub said...

Haha so many great photos to choose from how to decide! 어떻게!! I think my favorite is the one behind the branch cuz it reminds me so much of Wilson from that 90s American sitcom "Home Improvement". I am not sure if that was ever broadcast in Malaysia but if it was you'll know what I am talking about ^_^

Michael said...

awesome pictures!
i hope to go there soon!
thanks for sharing `em!
i like the brown jacket girls sling bag! it like has red writing and...someone's face on it? where did you get it. i want one!

Orchid said...

Hi valski,

The bag in question is a Charmian Mao Tze Tung army canvas shoulder bag. You can get that in China a whole lot. We saw it on sale in Beijing.

But carrying the bag might raise sensitive issues when carried elsewhere around the word because Mao Tze Tung, China's prominent communist leader is a controversial figure today (30 years after his death).

The brown jacket girl got the bag free as a gift...so she carried it.

Rooster said...

Hey valski, the writing on the bag directly translates to say, "Serve the civilians." But there are other less political designs available.

Liz said...

Yo Michael, I wasn't drunk-lar...well, not on alcohol anyway. Drunk on happiness ;-). Sigh the torture chamber...don't remind me about it! :-P

sasjo, what's wrong with hide-and-seek shots? Nice what...we rocked it :-P.

And to the others who left a comment, thank you for your kind words and encouragement :-).

In`vincible, yeah South Korea is at the top of our lists. But we'll have to see what comes out of that :-).
