Roaring Rapids Construction Milestone

Shanghai Disney Resort revealed today that a construction milestone has been reached. The mountain structure for Roaring Rapids has its peak installed, as you can see in the picture below. It is interesting to note that this "mountain" will be the highest among mountains in Pudong area, but the second highest structure in the park. The highest will be Storybook Castle.

Roaring Rapids is the name of the river rapids ride at Adventure Isle of Shanghai Disneyland. It is rumored to feature animatronic dinosaurs which makes it the most anticipated attraction of mine!!!

Please leave a comment below if you notice anything interesting in this image!

Hangzhou - My Hometown (Winter 2014)

After I finished my exams in the university, I went back to my hometown Hangzhou (Zhejiang, China) to take a break from studies. Right now it is the start of the winter, while autumn leaves can still be seen around the city. The nice blending of green, yellow and red makes it look really beautiful.

The following pictures are taken around the West Lake, the lake that inspired numerous Chinese literature, poets and stories. 

Please do visit Hangzhou if you have the chance!
