你好！Ni hao! Hello!
If you’ve come here by accident… thanks and please stick around. If you’ve come here on purpose… hey, really, thanks! =blush=
My name is Debby, or now that I’m in China, 吴嘉瑶 (wu jia yao). Back home in Sydney, I was a journalism student at UTS (the University of Technology, Sydney), radio presenter at 2ser, intern/unpaid worker at a number of places, and part-time hooligan.
Now in Beijing, my livelihood consists of being a Chinese language student at BIT (Beijing Institute of Technology), exploring an amazing new city, ‘finding myself’* , and trying to crack into the wonderful world of media over here. Only it might be a little harder, not really knowing the language and all.
*yes, I know this is a very big cliche. I added this so this could sound like all the other exchange student bios out there.
This blog is called what it is because riding a bike around Beijing is my favourite way to travel in this city. It allows me to see more, do more, live more, inhale a
bit lot more air pollution, become a true ‘Beijinger’ as such. Plus, Beijing is made up of ring roads, which means that many amazing places can be conveniently visited in one straight line. So why hop on the subway and miss all the sights in-between when I can bike it (and give my legs a workout?)
Please follow my blog if you want to know more about an Australian-born Chinese navigating through a culture that’s hers, but she knows nothing about. My experiences are bound to be enlightening, embarrassing, and capable of producing some cool photographic moments along the way. Comments are warmly invited and will be promptly replied to, if my love of attending universities with ‘technology’ in the moniker lives up to its name. Because I love technology.
P.S. Not sure how active it’ll be this year, but here’s a link to my main blog I maintained back home if you get bored of this one. Or if you want to give me a job (yes please!) and would like to see if I’m legit or not, take a look at my portfolio.
再见，(zaijian, see you again)
