Short trip last weekend in China

Haven't updated my blog for a while already; last week took Friday off for a long weekend and went to HangZho and SuZho with the family. The saying that 苏州 (Suzho) produces pretty girls in ancient Chinese literature isn't fake at all, as the girls has more smooth skin, and are generally more polite and elegant. We had to wake up both days around 6ish and was a bit tiring but it was worth it as there's also another saying that goes by 上有天堂,下有苏杭 (there's paradise above, and there's Suzho and Hangzho below) boasting about the beautiful scenery in these two Chinese provinces. The scenery were nice alright; but I find it a bit too hot with that nasty feeling of sweat and stickiness. Nevertheless, good thing we didn't have to cram into the trains that was packed like sardines as we commuted by car. Here's some pics, the background with myself in it is called the 'sword pool' with 3000 legendary swords in them. Cool, since I'm a huge fan of chinese martial art legends.

For some reason, the font of your blog shows up as black, with black background. And I can't quite see the photo either :(

May be only smart ppl can see? (The emporer's clothes.)

So where are these so called 'pretty girls'?

Andrew said...

heh, how very typical of you, to comment on the "local scenery" before commenting on the local scenery ;)

Ha ha, I can't take pics of pretty girls upfront man! Have to be discrete :p

Hey man, of course; nothing beats the local scenery :)
