kylie_minogue_wallpaperMy page rank is still zero and I still don’t get that much traffic. It’s so frustrating! Anyhow, I will still strive and post more stuff about Beijing while I’m still working in this part of China.

Upcoming Events:

  • Australian pop diva, Kylie Minogue, will be in town for a one night concert at the Worker’s Gymnasium on December 1. Ticket prices from RMB 280 to 2580. When we bought our reserved tickets this afternoon at piao.com.cn’s office, they’ve informed us that they don’t have any tickets left for the cheapest one.
  • The Elton John and Tim Rice Broadway musical, Aida, will hit the Beijing Exhibition Theater stage on November 19 to 23.
  • Carrefour Shuangjing Branch will hold a wine tasting and Beaujolais Nouveau on Wednesday, November 19 from 6pm to 1am to celebrate a French custom.  Grab your chance to taste some free wines!      

News Tidbits:

  • Want to see the inside of the Water Cube? Every night till November 30, you can watch a music spectacular show starting at 730pm. Ticket price is RMB 200/400/600/800. This would be your last chance to see the inside before they start renovating it to turn it to a water park.
  • iPhones are still not available for purchase legally in China. Also, the iPod touch 1st generation is being phased out now at the Apple Store in Sanlitun to give way to the 2nd gen which is targeted to be released early next year.
