Self-promoting my Filipino blog on a hostel in Beijing. I kind of felt a weird excitement writing “Philippines” over a wall in China. There was something self-righteous about it. Like poking a bully while he’s not looking, then pretending not to know anything about it when he turns and doing the customary internal “hehehe” on his account.
…Then I did the most distasteful thing and wrote about Spratleys ownership (guess whose side) somewhere else on the wall. Hope someone has since covered it up. Hahaha. Other than that, this hostel WAS the best part of my week-long Beijing stay. Next to trekking 6km of largely-wild-and-unrestored Great Wall, at least.
