As you may know, Jeremy is currently on a one-month trip to Taiwan and China. On Tuesday, he left Taiwan and arrived in Beijing for a few days. Unlike his arrival in Taipei last week, there were no fans or media at the airport waiting for him, nor at the St. Regis Hotel where he is staying.

After Jeremy checked into this hotel, Jeremy stayed true to his workout ethic and went to a nearby facility for a 2-hour training session.

On Wednesday, Jeremy attended an online Q&A with the founder and chairman of Geely Automobile, Li Shufu (Geely is the second largest private automobile manufacturer in China and acquired Volvo in March 2010). The theme of the topic was “chasing one’s dream.”
