Neo @ Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012 ()

I have travelled East to LuoYang and ZhengZhou for the long weekend.
Both cities were in Henan and ZhengZhou is the capital of Henan.
LuoYang was a historical city similar to Xi an filled with dynaties and prehistoric records.  This is also the birth place of traditional pottery glazing method唐三彩。I was truely amazed by the  brilliant idea of […]

21 Dec 2011 Xi’an Trip– 《我一生的挑战新加坡双语之路》by Lee Kuan Yew

Neo @ Thursday, December 22nd, 2011 ()

On the 11 hours flight to Xi’an, i read LKY latest book on singapore polices on bilingualism.  The book record his account on the formulation of Singapore bilingualism policy since British colony time to his ‘iron fist’ control of the Ministry of Education to impose this far sighted policy.
Reading this book I felt that this was not his own written word […]

Hong Kong is my favorite stop over whenever I need more sunlight and a break.
I am here to spent about one week before going back to singapore with my family.
The big contrast against the weather and orderliness relax myself when I was in HK.
Xi an is dirty due to the nearby dessert.  The cars is […]

27 nov –Xi’an –Taoism

Neo @ Sunday, November 27th, 2011 ()

Where I stayed nearby was a taoist temple dedicated to one of the goddess from 八仙’s 韩湘子。Thus the street 湘子庙街 was named.  However, except for few tourist,  few local visited the temple unlike temples in taiwan or SE asia which was always crowded.
I met an elder who revisited this temple for the wrong reason.  He […]

Most buildings are spectacular for its temporarily status especially the night […]

Neo @ Thursday, October 20th, 2011 ()

After 3 weeks in singapore. I am back to Xi’an again blogging at changi airport.
My agent informed me to cut down some 9kg to be eligible for my term insurance.

16Sept Xi’An –XIANMETRO

Neo @ Friday, September 16th, 2011 ()

 
Finally the much anticipated metro Line 2 is officially open today.
My colleagues and I went for a trial ride.
Interior was well executed except for some minor faulty details.
The train cabin was smaller compared to hk, sg or taiwan’s.  And was shorter too.  Not too good for comfort during peak hours. 
二号线最终确定的23个站名由北向南依次为:北客站、北苑站、运动公园站、行政中心站、凤城五路站、市图书馆站、大明宫西站、龙首原站、安远门站、北大街站、钟楼站、永宁门站、南稍门站、体育场站、小寨站、纬一街站、会展中心站、三爻站、凤栖原站、航天城站、韦曲南站、渭河车辆段和潏河停车场.
Hopefully this will level Xi An into a modern city state to be […]
