Back from China with a China riddle

Yo! I am back!

It was a fantastic trip, blessed with the perfect timing and weather, except perhaps for the last day. But I am not complaining, because…
















… … snow is always beautiful!




It delayed my flight for a couple of hours but it’s certainly a nice feeling to see snow again.

Anyone care to use your brain juice?

When I spent a few months working in ShenZhen and now about a week holiday-ing in Beijing, I noticed that China doesn’t have one particular thing… can you guess what it is?

It's snowing already in China? :o Ohh I miss snow! I'm feeling all so nostalgic just looking at those pictures :(

My brain cells are dead right now so I'll pass on the little quiz. But I'll sure be waiting for the answer XD

Welcome back! :D

You're lucky.

When I was there a few years ago(also end of Oct/early Nov), my plane couldn't take off due to snow/poor visibility.
Poor MAS had to accommodate all the passengers in a 5-star hotel for those 2 days with all meals provided.

Siew said...

I am not really sure what exactly China doesnt have. But from my several experience there (for work, not for leisure), these are the things I simply cannot find...

1. stray dogs
2. toilet paper
3. a toilet that flushes (except in my hotel)
4. clean air

Beautiful snow indeed!

But I don't travel during winter months. No thanks..the cold is just too much and in the case of China, it would be way, way too cold for me to enjoy.
