Chocolate Wonderland in Beijing

I have sweet tooth. Thus, I love chocolates. Anything sweet, actually. Creamy or milky, give ’em to me and I’ll never ever say NO. Last week, I went to the CHOCOLATE WONDERLAND at the north side of the Bird’s Nest or National Stadium. Of course, there was a display of chocolates around the world from […]
