Song said she has worked as an English teacher in an English training institution, based in Beijing, for the past two years.

"Many people feel it's hard to live alone in Beijing, however, I feel it's ok," she said.

"I shop, climb mountains or do a thorough house cleaning session and watch TV in my leisure time; but, I certainly feel lonely when I return my rental room alone after having fun outside."

The 24-year-old added she missed her family when she looked at the brightly lit subway or buses from outside her window.
