Trip to first stop: Suzhou (Part 2)

Continuing from my last post, after a visit to a few gardens, we had our very first meal in China. Well, it was a bit uncomfortable to eat dishes that look and taste weird. But how bad can it be? I did manage to accept 3 to 4 dishes out of the 7 or 8 dishes they served. All our lunchies and dinners are at restaurants, so the food was already quite "high-standard". I can't imagine having food at a sidewalk stall instead.

There was a visit to the famous "Han Shan Shi" (temple) and ended off with a boat trip this river (haha, i don't remember the name). There are people staying just beside the river. This is where their water is from for cooking and washing. The next morning, we headed off to our next stop: Wuxi after visiting the famous Silk factory.

Trip to first stop: Suzhou (Part 1)

Suzhou is really a beautiful place with many gardens and houses that were owned by rich officers back in the previous dynasties. Now, they are open for public access. Of course, some of the structures already undergone renovation. Overall, this is a city with nice scenery and comparable to Shanghai.

Is 1.30am now...finally I completed amending my blogskin. I have taken a long time tonite to select a suitable skin for my blog. The main reason is I need a blog which is simple and allow me to add my own images. As you can see on my new blogskin, I have designed my blog image with 2 photos. The pictures were taken by me at my trip to China. I will be showcasing some of my photos taken in China in my next post. Do keep a lookout of it!
