Gone are the days when art had to be appreciated in a certain way and by that I mean, staring deeply into it while making your own assumption as to what is going on with a painting or sculpture and wondering what the artist had in mind when he/she created such a beautiful mess.

I’m taking a quick break from blogging about Korea because I know how long I’ve already dragged it for, so I’m writing about something more recent. Working life and “adulting” tend to get in the way a lot of what I want to achieve that I’m slowly losing interest in doing what I do. Therefore, with that said, I try to “run away” to nearby places here in Asia just so my mind can be refreshed and I can be motivated once again. There was this art exhibition by Team Lab that we wanted to check out, so Carlos and I decided to go to Shenzhen last Sunday as we were both off from work.

Contrary to my previous post, Common Ground, is a good representation of modernism in my opinion because it showcases the creativity of the person(s) who came up with this idea. Stores in Shipping Containers? That would’ve never entered my mind if I hadn’t seen this. And special thanks to Carlos for taking me to such a cool place. Wouldn’t have known about it if it weren’t for him. Continue reading “Seoul Adventure Part 4-2: & The New”
Carlos and I were only in Beijing for the long weekend, so we tried to visit as many places as we could like “The Temple of Heaven, The Summer Palace and the Forbidden City“. We were able to visit the first two, but since we did not buy our tickets in advance for the Forbidden City, we were only able to see the entrance which was a pity because we were already there. Apparently, they only sell 80,000 tickets per day if I can remember correctly, so for those of you who’d like to be able to enter the Forbidden City, you should book/buy your tickets before going there or you’ll end up like us only being able to see the entrance.

Aaaah yes, Beijing. When I was in primary/elementary school and had just started learning Geography, my teacher had covered the topics “continents, countries, etc.”. And I learnt that China, till now, is one of the biggest countries in the world. I’ve obviously learnt about the capital that is Beijing, but I had never thought about visiting it till two years ago. The reason for this is because whenever I’d travel to another country and I’d meet people and let them know that I’m from Macau, they’d ask me if I’d been to the capital and always my answer would be no. So it got me thinking “Why haven’t I gone there anyways when I live in the country?”. That’s when I started nagging Carlos about going there and for several times I’d asked him, he turned me down because he didn’t want to until last month when I got him to agree.
