IMGP1652 Ni Hao, 你好! My name is Claudine.  I’ve created this blog to practice my writing skills and to take away the boredom of living alone in another country.

As you can see in my greeting, I’m currently in China specifically Beijing living the Olympic city life. I’m working as a customer service and leasing manager for one of the biggest real estate and management services firm in the region.

I love traveling and have been doing a lot of these with my travel buddy Marco. I’ll be providing you with tips and updates to maximize your holidays and prevent our bad experiences.

Beijing has a lot of food places and I’ll tell you more of this as I try something new. I won’t be able to blog much about the nightlife as I don’t go out that much. However, I can point out which ones are the best and which ones to avoid.

Besides traveling and eating out, I also love to watch movies. Living in a country where you don’t speak the language limits your leisure activities. Most expats tend to hoard dvds and watch it at home. Sad to say I’m one of them.

Do I like to collect?  Not really but I like keeping notes and coins from countries I’ve been to.  If you like collecting Starbucks stuff, I’ll be happy to help you with your collection.  Check my blog once in awhile as I’ll post my next destination.


PS.  This blog is a work in progress.  I’m slowly moving my posts about Beijing to another blog site.

    Thanks for the info about REIT. It’s nice to know more about how they operate as the company I work with is currently managing a building owned by a REIT.”

    Hi Claudine, regarding your interests in REIT, there is a course that you might be keen to consider which will be taking place during March 12 – 13, 2009 in Manila, Philippines.

    If you like travelling and looking for self upgrade course, kindly get in touch with me for the Fundamentals of REITs Philippines Masterclass during March 09.

    Looking forward to receiving your reply soon.
