I always cherish every moment with my beloved Fuji Instax Wide camera which mostly produced a decent picture. Waiting like you would get something huge, then something worth the wait came out. Ever since I'm not really a big fan of landscape pictures, I decided to capture every beautiful scenery with this lovely instant camera. I love how the result turns out to be pretty good.

And as I promised on my previous post, I made a short video too! To be honest, there are more videos from my trip which I want to put along with this one. Too bad my video editing program got crashed most of the time. Other than that, I hope you enjoy the other soothing side from the world's most crowded place :)



More pictures soon, bye for now!

We traveled all the way around to the south of China. Our destination was Nanning - Guilin - Yangshou - Haikou - Sanya. Let's start with Guilin.

Guilin is one decent city which surrounded by so many hills. I would like to named Guilin as the land of a thousand hills. It's beautiful and kinda weird at the same time, seeing so many buildings and people blend along with those hills as the background. Guilin has 4 lakes and each of them are stick together with a bridge. Government predict that the population will increase to its higher level which is 1,5 million people by next year.

The local people were so nice it depends on how you react with them. Mostly I started to say hi to them in Chinese (ni hao). I found the words "ni hao" is very addicting and turns out to be my new favorite words =D

in Nanning you can't see those beautiful hills as much as you could see in Guilin. Nanning hosts an annual exhibition that held every October in China & also just raised its popularity due to a very quick development in the last 5 years.

And as I always mention how much I adore kids, surprisingly I met this local kid named Xang Ni & her father at the nearest KFC to our hotel. They're so friendly it's hard to resist the fact not to love them (look at how cute she was in her tutu dress). We had a little chit-chat for awhile & thank God her father can speak English. Most people I met in China speak Chinese and barely can speak English. Even once I asked for mineral water and all they reacted was "..." , it was a bit depressing I must admit it.
And since we don't speak the language, every unspoken words were delivered with body language or else that well-understood.

The last 3 pictures are a glimpse from our boat trip in Yangshou (Shangrila Yangshou), it was really beautiful. I was stood there mesmerized by the beauty of its scenery. I'm telling you it was such an experience. Hopefully I can share the video with you.
Bye for now
