Guangzhou, China, taken on December 20, 2016
I never considered my hometown, Guangzhou, to be a very beautiful place, but when I posted this photo of Guangzhou on various social networking sites, several friends remarked that the Guangzhou depicted here is “beautiful”. Perhaps it is the faint sign of a blue sky that may be so rare in northern China nowadays. Perhaps its the greenery that is present even amid the urban centre. Perhaps…Guangzhou is beautiful, and I just never noticed it.

Tea and dim sum is a tradition of the Cantonese people and we like to have them in the morning, afternoon, evening…any time, pretty much. What better way to spend Christmas morning than having morning tea with a friend that I haven’t seen in a while? Sipping on some Pu’er tea as I wait for her to arrive…

Many sculptures are scattered around Shamian Island in Guangzhou, depicting traditional Cantonese life in the old “Xiguan” area of the city back in the days. One of my favourites is that of an elderly man taking his caged pet bird out for a walk, a rather common sight in the old days in Guangzhou.
