Shanghai Day 7

Officially one week in Shanghai already. I still can’t believe that I am actually in Shanghai. Or, more of the fact that I am coming home to a hotel. Its not a five star luxurious hotel but still quite a decent one. People would say it is three star but I would not know exactly because I *think* I never been in one?

But it was not too bad. Just the bathroom is a bit small. Otherwise its a nice hotel =) Since we pay a cheaper rate than the tourists, we were required to get our own toiletries. That is alright. There is actually a water dispenser. No reason not to remain hydrated. Ok, I still pretty much drink a lot lesser than others.

I have been having fun trying out new food and all. Having good times and building bright memories. I just realised life here can be so hectic that I would not really miss internet much. I have been without internet constantly for a week and I am still surviving. I have been trying to get internet past few days but they could not get it working for me. I returned again just now to ask but they say I have to go back on Monday to get a working account. Here, they do not have wi-fi. So have to get a matching account username and password. Too bad many are broken =( But I consider it rather cheap at RMB80 per month.IMG_3105Anyway, about today. As usual, going to uni late morning to have lunch in cafeteria. =) As always, we will see beggars. Its sad to see them but I would not want to help them and result in them always expecting something from me every time I pass by. Just like in Paris, I was always advised against it. =(IMG_3107I got something from the street instead of eating with the others in the cafeteria. IMG_3108Something like roti canai but the smell just seems different.IMG_3112The taste is a bit similar but with the seasoning and all, its different yet again!IMG_3113Today in tutorial class, we got to do some “jian zi” (paper cuttings).IMG_3119My tutor taught us =) So nice right? Others did not! =P So happy.IMG_3122I love my tutor a lot. And she added us in MSN and force us to type in Chinese with her. This is to help us improve in our Chinese recognising and pinyin skills =) I do not think others got the same chance and great tutor like me and Khoo’s! =DIMG_3123I was to make a snow flake but then because of wrong folding, I got a weird like thing.IMG_3124Christie cut the “xi” word and it turn out nice (for a first timer its a very great job! =D)IMG_3126Then went to have dinner. But tried out “chou dou fu” first. Smelly bean curd.IMG_3128It was totally not smelly. I think this is not authentic but its was not bad. I love the sweet sauce a lot =DIMG_3132Then had dinner at Kui Lin Mi Fen =) so so but the portion was really big.IMG_3130Not much for today. Weekend is here but then we have two essays and one presentation to prepare for =( Argh! Nevermind, will still try to find time to go out =)

Money spent for Day 7:

Total spent = RMB24.80

Still loving the cold weather,

The one who is now having a more painful right knee pain but not complaining =)
