No Fat Girls in Beijing ... & ... The Coolest Building

Beijing girls are slim, no doubt about it. 

I noticed that when I was travelling in the subways and observing the locals in general. If I see a fat Chinese girl, chances are she's not a local. Maybe she's a Malaysian Chinese cause 2 in every 5 Malaysians are obese. 

The hotel where we stayed, Traders Hotel is located in the Central Business District (CBD) where skyscrapers light up the skyline and the roads are wide enough for a small aircraft to land.

From our hotel room I can see the tallest building in Beijing:

The China Central Television (CCTV) building is one of the coolest building I've ever seen! If I love the Petronas Twin Towers for its stylish steel structure that gleams in the sun and illuminates the skyline at night, I love the CCTV building for being radical in a cool way. I wonder how the floors are named.



The girls who work in the CBD are busy executives who dresses immaculately and I noticed most of them wear pantyhose when they wear a skirt. Not too sure whether it's because of the cool weather or just good grooming. Anyhow, their legs look slim and gorgeous in pantyhose, which reminded me of my ex-boss who told me that a lady must always wear stockings if she's wearing a skirt. I had just joined the corporate world back then and that piece of grooming tip has stuck with me till today. 

If the girls in Beijing are slim lasses, then the girls in Hangzhou are another breed of pretty Chinese lasses. 

Apparently Hangzhou is not only famous for its natural sceneries and lovely weather, but also for its pretty lasses, so much so that the Emperors of China made annual trips to Hangzhou to select their concubines.

Hi Julie, nice posting. Love that building....I've never been to China, maybe will one day.
I guess maybe China girls are ardent green tea drinkers?

And yes, where I am, lots of China ladies, and those from Shanghai are really heart stopping, forget mother's name beauties! Their fairness like the morning sun.

You have a nice day, and keep a song in your heart.
Best regards.
Lee.

I remember reading news a while ago which said girls in Chongqing were the prettiest.

BTW, if I remember correctly, it was Suzhou, not Hangzhou, which was famous for beautiful women.

LOL! There's no doubt Malaysia is the fattest country in SEA and probably somewhere at the top for Asian countries. I don't know whether to be proud or sad. :-D

Hi Uncle Lee,

I agree with you that the Chinese ladies are indeed a gorgeous bunch. Like you said, green tea may be part of their daily diet :-)

Cheers.

Hi Kheng Siong,

The tour guide must have given us the wrong info then. But maybe it's Dalian cause most of the Dalian lasses are supermodel material :-)

Hi Jipp,

To me it's an utter shame. Btw, did you read in The Star recently that 44.2% of Malaysians are overweight and that the BMI of Msian schoolchildren are printed in their report cards so that parents can monitor their weight. Where the hell are we heading to?
