People’s Republic of China here I come 

Okay, this is not really a full post. I just want drop a short note to let everyone know I’m going to China for a 2 weeks trip with my family.

Since China is famous of its Great Firewall, meaning I won’t be able to go into my WordPress, Twitter, Facebook accounts to reply to your comments for a while BUT with the help of VPN, I hope I still get to sneak one or two replied as and when I can. So if you don’t hear from me….. I’m alive!!

But don’t worry about getting withdrawal symptoms from MiddleMe, I have lined up articles until I’m back. I will definitely drop another short note once I’m back away from the Firewall.

china-805184__180So for those who are curious, my itinerary goes Kuala Lumpur – Xi’an – Yan’an – Shanghai – Kuala Lumpur.

So keep those comments coming!!

      It is kinda like adventure. Actually for the Shanghai portion, it’s mostly to meet up my friends. Haven’t seen them for 6 months since I moved to Malaysia.

        I should tell you that if you can get a VPN, from StrongVPN, which very cheep, you will have on problems with the Internet. Put this on your laptop before you come to China. Good Luck.

          Thank you for your tips. I am getting VPN but I’m going to Tier 3 area so the Internet is already slow plus with VPN, alas the page probably timeout before it can open. 😀

        It is so big that even we haven’t visited half of it. Most tourists start from the north ( to visit Taj Mahal ) and then go south. You may want to arrive in New Delhi as the starting point, but again I am no expert.
