Not exactly 1 out of 85 days, so begin with I got this oversea attachment program during my mid semester. I went for 2 interviews, one was the Germany internship in one of their universities and another is the BITC interview. So here I am here in BITC again and I was back here for 3 months. I wrote a post before on what I did but I didn’t continue because it’s very length therefore I just posted half of it. Well, let me talk about what I did before I came into the Beijing, China. So past few days before the flight, I worked for the Singapore Night Festival for 3 days and other remaining days were packing and going out with my girlfriend and friends.
So on the final day which is my flight day, I woke around like 9am and went to get my slippers because my slipper kind of torn because I used to play basketball. And went to deposit money, oh we also use the ICBC bank which is usable in Beijing and most malls does have that ATMs. Because we didn’t want to bring large amount into the country therefore we decided to put the cash there so when we need just put withdraw them.
Before going china, I also researched on the VPNs’ that are available so ExpressVPN is one the most reliable ones that I have been using since last year when I was in Beijing BITC as well. It does come with a cost, which is like $12.95 a month uh but I have put my referral link on the group where all my fellow friends who are travelling with me so they can buy the VPN together and 30 days free extra!
So I kind of got 60 days free which is like 2 months of free VPNs. Getting back on track, my flight was like 1am and so I took the cab at around 630pm on 1 September 2017 which I was going to meet my friends for dinner at Changi Airport with my girlfriend. So we picked Pasta Mania which is Halal and suits most of our taste. So my family and my best friends came down to send me as well! I was so glad my old friends which we bonded together since in ITE came too which I am really grateful and my best friends which I sees them everyday but still. My girlfriend who stayed by me who support me for this 3 months internship and not blaming me for leaving to Beijing and lastly my family we came down even though they were extremely tired after their work.
So we went in around 1145pm and we boarded on flight at 1245am on 2nd September 2017. I book the seats which at the side and Ryuichi sat behind me, luckily Yan De and Aloysius also had the seats that were right beside me. Then we flew and reached at like 7am but we came out of the airport at 8am plus and we just met the Ms Liu and she brought us to the bus to BITC.
When we were at the BITC, we met 2 friendly china buddies that brought us around the school which we get to look at the canteen, mini mart, table tennis court, football field, running track and the class rooms. Then we went out of the school to check out the ICBC bank was actually opposite our school and then we went to the school opposite supermarket to buy our daily needs.
So we went back to our hostel and went to nap till 4pm and we played their mandarin mobile legends which is called 王者荣耀 till like 7pm and we went out to buy our dinner at the supermarket because the hostel doors closes at 10pm so we came back earlier to eat dinner. Here a picture on the mandarin mobile legends:
So on 3rd September, we woke up like 8am and met at 1030am. We travelled out to the Joy city at Qing Nian Lu which we took the bus 553 at the back of the school. We walked out the main gate of the school and turn left and walk straight and cross opposite to the bus stop. Around 10 stops to the Joy City and we went to eat our brunch. So we had some hong kong brunch! Here some pictures:
We shopped for pillows, and went miniso to buy the things like folk and spoon, floor mat, washing nets and few more stuff. Then we went muji to get the pillow because the pillow were really low plus we get it because we are living for 3 months so kind of a long term investment. Then we to shopped some groceries like clothes washing detergent and some other stuff!
Then we travelled back to BITC and met for dinner at 7pm. We took 619 opposite our school and stopped at Dong Ba Zhong Lu and had some Zha Jiang Mian for dinner.
And went to explore their supermarket at B2 and they went to buy their Starbucks and we went back to our hostel.
That is the end of the days from the beginning of our preparation for internship in Beijing, oh yes we went to their train station to get our bus card for like $50 RMB. $20RMB is for the card and $30RMB for the balance. We bought the card because it’s really a hassle for us to take $2RMB for every bus ride to every location and find the train station when we going to those prominent places in Beijing when taking the train.
Anyways I have to wake up at 7am and be ready by 8am to meet the teacher in charge for our internship. Goodnight viewers! 🙂
