China (Beijing) Day 2 – Forbidden City

June 30th, 2012


So the plan for day 2 was:

  • TianAnMen Square
  • The Forbidden City
  • The Temple of Heaven
  • A visit to a silk factory

A pretty full day. It was rather tiring, but we managed to pull though!

TianAnMen Squire, the biggest square in the world. It is huuuuuuge! I can’t image what goes down when half of china is gathered there. There were lots of tourists nevertheless, so it gave a pretty good understanding of the size.

Lack of posts…

June 25th, 2012

Its been 3 days in to my China trip and im loving every moment!
Sorry for the lack of post, blame it on the Chinese government, who blocked youtube and stuff.

Anyway, what I have decided to do, is just enjoy my trip and once I get to Japan on the 30th, I will post 7 posts, about each of my days in China.

But for now I bid you farewell, and stay tuned!

After spending 14 hours in the plane, I’m in a cozy bed in a hotel in Beijing.
Only to find Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Google, Foursquare (on my phone for some reason, even though the normal website works fine), YouTube and other awesome sites to be completelly blocked… Well i knew about it, but dang yo 🙁

P.S. WordPress is blocked too, but for some reason i can still write blog posts through the iOS app *_*

Pokemon on my Mac

June 17th, 2012

pokemon screen

Because of all this talk about Pokemon in the Anime@UTS club lately, I fell into nostalgia mode and decided to replay some of the classics.

In order to do that though, one either need a Game Boy / Color / Advanced / Nintendo DS.  In my case I have a Game Boy Advanced, however i do not posses any of the Pokemon games…. sadface.jpg

So what does an IT guy do in this case, one thing! find an emulator. And I was successful. Now I can play any Game Boy games on my iTaiga (MacBook Air) or iKonata (Mac Mini). 1 ROM is usually 1-20MB and they provide infinite enjoyment!
