Having fun in Beijing: Day 1

My Beijing trip

I finally got my ass up to do this trip which happened almost a month ago! Gosh,time flies. I miss the cold weather there,can't wait to go back to somewhere cold. Next trip's planning is already in progress,stay tuned! ;) Meanwhile,the beijing trip!


It was quite a dilemma as to whether I should go or not,as I have got quite a few commitments here. Hardly does the whole family get to travel together,so I decided to go in the end.

ZOMG,I got my ticket 9 hours before I'm due to fly!

Anyway,I chose a different flight for 2 reasons. 1st,the same flight has got no more seats. 2nd,since the whole family is travelling together,you'll be kinda scared if something happens and the whole family dies right? -choy ga lei,touch wood!- But yeah,different flight it is. Finally,at the hotel in the evening...

My bro checking out the room

Awesome huge bathroom with a bath tub!... which I never got to use throughout my entire stay there -_-

There was still a bit of time left,so we went out in search for food! We wanted those kind of small,hidden but delicious food. But none could be found,they were expensive and were closing. So we just continued walking for a bit and boy,I'm glad we did! We found this little lane where it's all the yummy food!

There,this lane it is. It totally looked like some part of Japan where we always watch in the movies. Even my bro thinks so too.
A whole road down with similar food like duck noodles,noodle this, noodle that. And I realised that they don't sell pork,only mutton,chicken and beef. Mutton is my favourite when I was there. I had like,the best mutton in the world!

A nice warm dinner after shower. Warm food always tastes good,especially when it's like freaking 12 degrees outside. Don't laugh at my eye bags,I'm not putting any make up in this photo. AND. This meal you're looking at cost me freaking!!!

$2.40!

$0.40 for the coke,$1 for the noodles and $1 for 5 sticks of mutton. Gosh,so heavenly. I could feel myself salivating right now as I'm typing this. Annoyingly,they don't serve ice. I can't get the maximum shiokness of the coke. Oh wells. Mutton was good,noodles and the soup were even BETTER.

After the dinner,it's time to go back and get some rest for a full day tomorrow. I shall end my post here for now,of day 1. Wait for day 2 alright? And guess what,

I wore a flimsy pair of shorts out for dinner in this cold weather!
