dat morning we visited one more place b4 arriving at the guangdong district. it was a hilltop temple-like area wif all sorts of brass(?) urns n such. there was also a great bell dat we can strike (for a fee). my dad took a video of me striking the bell but sumhow the vid was deleted :( anyway after dat we reached guangdong n checked into the hotel (darn, forgot the name d). then we all split up to wander beijing street, the busy street rite outside the hotel. since it was sunday, the number of ppl on the street was staggering....its like a sea of heads when u look at the street from a higher vantage point...we had to literally push our way thru the street most of the time. so anyway we spent the whole afternoon browsing around the shopping places in the area which included shops, bazaars n shopping complexes...that road alone wud hv satisfied the craziest shopper i think. dat nite we took a taxi to another part of the town for a latin-style bbq buffet. there was even sushi n sashimi offered! n the waiters carried around long skewers wif meat on them n will cut u a slice on ur plate when requested. very satisfying meal it was :P
nothing much to say bout this day cuz i practically juz spent the whole day walking around the streets. i think dat was the longest period of shopping i ever did in my life....n got quite a bit of stuff to show for it too. failed to find martial arts equipment tho. there was only one shop selling kicking pads n other stuff n they were too low quality. oso tried a lot of different food throughout the day including a type of desert called shuang pi nai (double-layered milk..?) n the super-spicy hunan roast duck.
around midday a bus came for us n drove us to the airport n we departed from china without incident....reached penang around 10.30pm. so endeth the china trip 2005. *sigh of relief*
