Yup. Back since Sunday.
Nope. Jason, not Japan – oh Hokkaido how I wish to spa till wrinkly in your hot springs. Nay, Judy though fervently hope to say ‘Off to Australia’ with a casual wave in the near future. Ting-ting-ting (a chopstick against an empty condensed milk can – that’s all I can afford after this trip) !! Sze, you guessed correct. *stubbing out a couple of ants* You want the can? I’ll wash it real clean.
Landed in Shenzhen, bus-ed over to Hongkong. A few days later, train-ed over to Shenzhen, overnight in a spa (sounds intriguing huh) then taxi-ed to the airport.
5 women let loose in Hongkong and Shenzhen. Went in one, lugged back 2 suitcases each. How not to when shopping booty even included packs of dog food, bottles of ‘tit-ta-chau’ (medicated ointments) and boxes of Chinese herbs, squeezed among new clothes, shoes, perfumes, hair products, bags and more bags. Did I mention bags?
Oh we had plenty to eat too just not much time to decipher the menu and ingredients. Maybe should had rephrase it to 5 female bananas let loose in Chinese territory. So, lots of guessing, pointing and confusion when ordering in restaurants with only Chinese characters menus. Thanks to our newest contact there, we ate very well. Thanks to our dearest newest contact again, we were able to maximize our funds for material things. Yes folks, a huge chunk of our eats were paid for by our loveliest newest contact there. Friends, if you are looking to work overseas, please go anywhere but Hongkong and let’s not ever lose contact. =D
Overall food was good but tend to be a tad salty. Didn’t capture most of the meals though. Tired soles aching shoulders leading to trembling fingers – signs of successful long shopping outings – produced less than unflattering food pictures. (-_-)” To further justify my lack of flogger spirit, are you aware that all the eateries there, no matter what size or location just DO NOT issue you a copy of the bill? Being my ardent reader (ahem, fluff own feathers and new jacket, ahem again), you know how lost I am without such chits. Since our darlingest newest contact settled most of the bills, I was quite shy to keep reminding her to make such request. For those she managed to get, the items are in Chinese! *sweat buckets so spray on more new perfume*
I beg for some time to sort out the more presentable food pictures (after finished putting away newly acquired stuff naturally). Hopefully can get the dish names translated. *cross all limbs*
In the meantime please come back soon for some old drafts ..
Oh, excuse me while I go wave hello to all my fellow bloggers .. *see, got new bracelets*
