Big Fish and Begonia 大鱼海棠 – title song and clips

A 16-year-old girl embarks on a fantastical and dangerous adventure after transforming into a dolphin. When a boy sacrifices himself to save her, she uses magic to bring him back to life -- only to learn that this power comes at a serious price.

Directors: Liang Xuan, Chun Zhang

"Never short on visual or emotional wonder, Big Fish & Begonia contemplates mortality with the imagination of an old soul who has been given new eyes."

Hiking the Great Wall 长城 of China in the snow

A great film of the Great Wall north of Beijing, including 'wild wall', accompanied by great music (踏古 (Ta Gu) by Lin Hai, 'Walking into Ancientry', with Chinese lute (pipa)).

We [mum, dad - videographer - and son and daughter, from Singapore] hiked 3 sections of the Great Wall in winter, without any guides after studying blogs and posts by fellow hikers.

All these sections are different. From the unrestored GuBeiKou Great Wall where we were the only people around, to the wonderful JinShanLing, where the climb is steep and every direction gives you good photo opportunities, to the restored MuTianYu where we hiked in heavy snowfall.

We stayed at local farmhouses on both nights, dined with the locals and hitched rides to nearby bath-houses. Temperature ranged from -5 deg C (day) to -12 deg C (night). Winter daybreak is at 7am and the sky becomes dark by 5pm so one has only 10 hours of daylight, so plan your travelling and hiking schedules carefully.

This once-in-a-lifetime experience was captured on video and we would like to share it with you. The feelings just can't be described - you need to experience it first hand.

Take only memories, leave only footprints and kindness ...

This is it

An awakening ...

With the new year on the doorstep, and resolutions on one's mind, BeijingBuzzz says to be yourself and not get caught up in the crowd - but, at the same time, be kind to others (and yourself) with understanding and an open heart and hand; for all of us, across the world, have the same basic dreams, and the beauty of life is partly in the variety in the expression of those hopes for a better future, and our various traditional cultures.

The time is always now - this is it.

Yet time is not always ours - everything is transient. While we are alive, we should live; with a mind free from the past and with eyes that see what is, without preconception.

Happy New Year 2017 to all our visitors !

Tune in for the firework displays shortly ...
