This is the day. This is the day that Ryan starts his first day at
Beijing . This is
also his big adventure. This is also his next milestone, just like us, who are
starting our life from scratch in this new land, new culture, new faces and un-chartered
with unexplored territories. China
Honestly, we were rather fearful that Ryan would not want to go to his new school as he was very very comfortable with his school back home in Malaysia. He said that he only want to go the school for only ONE day and he would want to return to his school back home in
But he got up without a fuss. We changed him and got him to wear so many clothes that he has never worn before. He was excited.
We were not quite sure what to pack for him today. We just packed what we thought was necessary. He looked dashing in his blue winter jacket.
While waiting for our rented apartment to be ready, we are currently staying at a service apartment which is just 10 minutes walk away from the school. Since, we have not arranged for the school bus to pick him up for this first day, we have to walk him to school and the experience was nothing short of memorable ….walking in freezing temperature in a country we hardly know, in winter clothing so thick that we all looked bloated up but surprising, pleasing to the eyes.
We are slowly settling down with our life in
Ryan to his school is just another step forward. Beijing
