This is one of the most popular street in SuzhouCity. It’s just like the Orchard Road in Singapore, as busy as ever. During the mooncake festival short holiday, we head over to the street and did some shopping.
For sports lover, there’s so much Adidas, Nike, Puma shop available that I lost count of it. All I ever knew was, everywhere was on SALE. Haha.
Anyway if they say Singapore is food paradise, China is lagi better haha. There’s food everywhere at every corner, it’s just whether you dare to eat anot and most of the food is yummy. Of course, you wouldn’t want to see how they prepare the food before that haha.
Time for some pics…
Because that time when we went there it’s a public holiday, so it’s full of people. No wonder they said China is overpopulation that’s so true.
First Stop: 肉月饼
Mooncake Festival besides eating the normal mooncake, have you tried meat mooncake before? Well, I spent half an hour queuing for this, it’s so nice.
Before that, Magnum first… Singapore so expensive, here only 4RMB, yeah the chocolate is so rich.
It looked like normal shaobing on the outside but inside it’s juicy meat. Nice 12 for S$4. See their face and you will know how delicious it is.
Next Stop: 猪肉串
The four poor students in China….
Third Stop: 冰糖葫芦
When I was young and I watched those oldies show, I often see the kids wanting to eat this and it’s always my dream to eat this. I finally got the chance YEAH!!!
Yeah tones of it…. Since I don’t eat Haw, So I opted for the fruit ones. I loved it.
There’s no need to makeup in China haha…I think after my three mths here I will forgot how to paste fake eyelashes anymore haha.
Fourth Stop: 臭豆腐
If you think Hongkong and Taiwan got the best smelly tofu, let me tell you China will not lose out either…wakaoz the smell is really unbearable especially when the whole street is selling that..faintz!
People are queuing for it man.
My first virgin try and I think it’s really yummy, just put in straight into ur mouth, its crispy J
Don’t think we ate the whole day, we actually did walk around,
Me and Ah Ling, my landlord’s daughter, I’m like her sister, she quite close to me.
Someone trying to be funny.
You want to prosper? You can try it here..haha how true? I not very sure too cause I never go in.
Some random pics

Ok I try to post some random pics, now using my lappy cause the other time it failed miserably. Haha. For more pics pls wait for Ms Yap patiently.
First and foremost, welcome to my hostel. It looked kinda of old from the outside rite. However the inside is still orite. The corridor is SO DAMN dark, everytime we come home we have to use torchlight, credits to Ms Eun for her beautiful cute torchlight that she gave me before I board the plane. haha it really come in handy man.

Anyway when I was on the taxi back, I passed by a BIG shop selling NICI toys, but I really dunno where it is, how I wished I could jump off the car that time haha. Hopefully I can pass by there again.

Days in Suzhou
Sorry for not being able to update my blog for so long. I have no internet access totally here in Suzhou.
Only can use for awhile in the company on Saturday. Seriously I missed blogging lah. Tried to upload photos in here, but it can't be done. Yawnzz..
I guessed I am dai sai forever hahaha..
It's my fourth day here, we have somehow or rather adapt to the lifestyle here. We took the public transport to the workplace every morning.. So next time when I got back I think I will be good at that. Our hostel looks old on the outside but it's actually very cosy in the inside with air-con wohooo. We are staying in the xiang xia, no mac, no kfc, just cong you bing, jiao zhi and boring stuffs. So cup noodles is our best friend now.
Will try to upload the pics asap if I got the chance.
Got to go now....awww i miss Singapore... :)

76 days to go...
When asked whether I'm excited abt the trip...
I answered: Orite Lah
When asked whether am I nervous
I answered: Hmm... haven't feel anything yet
When asked whether am I happy
I answered: A little
I'm not sure why I'm feeling this way, but somehow or rather right now I just don't want to think of anything else. Maybe before I went into the departure gate, the emotions will then hit me and I might cry a little.
Thank you friends for being there for me, helping me, accompanying me and treating me. Special thanks to : Selyn and Yuxuan for packing the luggage for me... You know how lousy and disorganized Li Li is and mama you're the best...As for xiao bao gong... tks for always being by my side, accompanying me running the errands.

After 5 months..
Exactly after 5 long months, I'm back to Batam once again.
So happy to be back.
The feeling of being able to visit my grandma, my cousins, uncles, aunties, nephew, niece was great!! I loved this kinda of family bonding session.
Not to mention, the shopping session.
Me and Shufen bought so much stuffs that we had to buy a luggage bag to put it in. Haha.
I loved my new pink mouse, pink polo ralph tee, luggage bag, my indo mee goreng, necessities..blah blah blah...
Shufen was a more powerful shopper until she had to munch biscuits for the rest of the month.
We loved the feeling of shopping freely, taking short breaks in between as the mall is just five mins away from my uncle's house....
In summary, I loved this trip..even though I'm having cramps for my PMS the whole day today..
Will upload the photos soon..hopefully by tmr...want to do it before I leave Singapore..if not i will hear constant nagging....
Short Note: Shadows of you everywhere

Catching Up Session....
For the past few days, been busy meeting up friends to catch up on our life before my trip next week. Perhaps it's the running around that makes me fall sick these few days. Nevertheless, the little sickness did not affect my mood, I'm still happily meeting up my friends.
Well, lazy to type so much... Let me upload the pics first before it piled up.
Date: Wednesday, 3 Sept Venue: Powerhouse at St James Activity: Clubbing with the girls
Finally the all four of us had the chance to club together...it's a rare sign seriously haha. Enjoyed myself with them. Seriously the five free drinks for the Ladies were awesome. Loved the management alot!!!!.....four of us meant 20 drinks....wohoooooo.
On the train....
one word of advice: Eat first before you drink, or eat a slice of butter..it helps to increase ur capacity of drinking as well as to protect you gastric haha...
What women do...
Is he looking in the camera intentionally?
My newly trained young clubbers... Should I show this pic to their parents? hahaha
This pic summed up our night... oh ya the booze is only quarter of it..so you can imagine how generous St James is haha...
Let's go for more this kind of session after I'm back man....
Date: Thursday, 4 Sept Venue: Tampines Mall & Century Square Activity: Movie cum Lunch
Met up with Mr Bullshit aka Dexun for movie this afternoon... We had this habit that whoever is buying the tickets we would not let the other party know what show we are watching only until we reached the cinema and the show started....
So today, I had totally no idea which show we would be catching and it turned out that this is one movie I wanted to watch after reading Xiao Han's blog the other time...
Yeah Journey to the Centre of the Earth...yea i know the pic abit small...i lazy to upsize it... anyway the movie was great!!! It's exciting together with some humour parts oh man even though I'm suffering from sniffing and coughing throughout the show, even though I was so tired and sick it still managed to catch my attention throughout. So nice!!! I loved the plot...
This movie did not had a lot of publicity and I'm really glad that Mr Bullshit chose the right movie haha.. Hopefully there would be a part two on a different place haha.
After the movie it's lunch time!!!
A sickly me with no makeup hahaha yucks
Guys just don't like to take pics rite?
You see... Now u know what I meant haha..
Anyway we had Sakae Sushi buffet...due to sore throat I didn't ate that much cause u know most of the side orders are fried dishes...and sushi are limited....I still prefer my Nihon Mura....cheaper and more cheaper variety haha..
oh yes will be meeting up my two dear cousins for dinner there...It's been long since we really met up due to our busy lifestyle. Thank you Ms Tupperware for organizing it :)
Will be meeting Joewyn for lunch before that hopefully.
Sat and Sun to Batam
Oh no, did I mention I haven't packed my luaggage yet for China?? Mama is so going to nag at me every now and then.
But from what I know.... it's beauty sleep time!!!! who cares lolz
