Chengdu 6D5N: The ExperienceTuesday, December 17, 2013
This trip has gave me many first time and I learn so many new things and yes lot’s of new experience and memory. I am not gonna write travelogue like I used to do because I think it’s kinda bored and not every places I went is worth visiting. So this post will be about the experience in Chengdu, the environment, the people, the weather, the culture and for food , it will be another separate post. As for worthy places to visit will be another separate post too!! So you need to follow through all three post k?
To begin let’s start with my flight to Chengdu!! It was explosive!!
** You must read this!!
As usual, I check in at airport and wait for my turn to board!! As you all know, Facebook,Twitter, Google and a few more website are all banned in China. YES No Facebook!! That is why you don’t see my frequent updates on FB!!! So just few minutes before I board I realize there is some campaign I need to complete using FB…. and the connection speed in LCCT is almost similar to tortoise speed of crawling…I was panicked like shit that I am shaking while typing using my mobile!! No Joke… Thank god manage to complete before I board, it was a released..So i thought alright when i sit in the plane I am going to put on my eye mask and expand my air pillow to get a good sleep!!!!
Here the story begin!!!! Keep on reading okay!
It is raining heavily that evening, my very first time using umbrella to walk to the plane!! tsk tsk if at KLIA there will be connection bridge…..hahaha that’s what you get when you fly with budget airline!
I took some picture of the cloud when the sun set when the plane fly to at another state..
Usually this is the time where I will tug on to my cardigan and scarf and pull down my eye mask getting ready to my dream land…..OMFG the entire plane is so so so so noisy…..It’s not the normal chatter voice, its like a market! Literally, like a market!!! They don’t speak in soft tone but is a high tone and loud voice. My new phone do not have any song downloaded into it, so there is nothing that I can use to filter the noise!!!’It’s just a torture to past every single minute! Not just noise but people just walking back and forth nonstop.
One thing that I am amazed was usually when the flight attendant bring out the food to serve to passenger most don’t really purchase unless pre-book but this flight I can see everyone is pulling out their bank notes to buy the food…Just like how people buy food in night market…What a good scene to watch…
Toward half the journey, suddenly one man fainted!!! Apparently, he has food poisoning and had just drop a huge bomb in the toilet. If you get what I mean, you can imagine the air quality in the plane….It become worst when the man fainted and other passenger gathered around and start to make noise again!!! OMG with the air quality and the noise from the crowd my headache is getting worse…. The entire journey I kept applying medicated oil!!! Damn it, I just recall the motion sickness pill while I was typing now…Should have taken them then I can sleep like a pig…Though I’m not sure it will work for such environment!
Thank god my return flight was more peaceful!!!
It was winter when we are there and basically no snow in Chengdu. However, the mountain may have snow so skiing is possible. Most of the time even during autumn or spring there is not much sun in Chengdu!! The sun just decided not to appear in Chengdu!
Surprisingly, we made sun very happy that he decide to smile on our entire journey…So i get to see some beautiful sunset..I could even see a round, solid, warm orange sun!
We see a lot of high rise building but not as much as KL. It’s consider quite developed if I were to compare to some other country in Asia.
If not mahjong then it will be cards….I enjoy playing them when I am there tooo… I remember that day I was having menstrual cramp but when playing all pain is gone!! Hahaha now want to accompany me to play card next month on the first day of my menses ya?? So i don’t to go through that bad cramps??
or having tea session with friends… fuhhhh this my favourite too..I’ll share with the best tea session I have in Chengdu in my upcoming blogpost!!
Typically the local have big bowls of vegetables with lots of gravy in it and another bowl of hot soup!! Not much meat though…
Oh one of the most beautiful sights is looking at the chubby baby pink cheek wearing thick and fluffy jackets…Soooo adorable!!
During winter most shop sell big and thick winter jacket!!! That’s the only thing you find in most of the shop….Grrr shopping during winter is just lurking and lurking… But i love to look at all the varieties of coat and jackets colours display on the store…
Some of the adorable outfit I spotted!
