I live in the pretty spacious apartment in Beijing. I live in the 8th floor of a high-rise, and it covers a little more than 120 square metres. It is a fairly nice place. My apartment has six rooms – one living room, one kitchen, two bathrooms and another two bedrooms. All of them are well-decorated and furnished. There is a big bookshelf beside my kids’ room so that my boy can easily get books to read. In addition, we have a big balcony beside the dining table so that we can enjoying eating dinner and having tea there.

My family spend most of our time in the living room. We’d like to sit around a set of comfortable sofa there and chat with each other or watch TV. But when I am free, I would prefer to read the story books to my son.

I live with my wife and my kid. My apartment is pretty big so there is enough space for everyone. We rented the apartment four years ago. And my kid is in the kindergarten near my home, so we won’t intend to move around in the future.

We sometimes go out by car because it is not convenient to take a taxi in that area, and it needs nearly 30 minutes’ walk to the nearest subway station. So generally speaking, it is not good to go out without cars.
