The Unseen Chengdu

This is the last post about my trip to Chengdu which contains some random photos. 
You can say that it is my lazy short cuts to wrap up my China's trip before I fly off.




 1. "Wide & Narrow Lane" (Kuan Zhai Xiangzi) ~ 
This is another preserved ancient hub which is a very posh & upscale 
neighbourhood like Bangsar with rows of traditional shops & trendy cafes. 
You will walk on the original granite slab paths which the warriors of 
The 3 Kingdoms have traveled on horse carriages. 
Their wall murals are so interesting!




2. Mount Emei Bus Station - It was a 4 hour long wait for our bus and the freezing temperature was 1 Celcius. I took out my Maggi's Cup Noodles to pamper myself. 
The curry flavour was Oomph! Enak Rasa nya!





3. This couple had a big terrible fight and shouted their lungs out swearing all ancestors! 
Suddenly his mobile phone rang and all forgotten.





4. The Starbucks in downtown Chengdu is fully decorated with Chinese Antiques!





5. All the subway stations in China's big cities conduct very strict security checks on all commuters. The handbags, luggage and hand carry items like drinking bottles are scanned through X-Rays with body checks on every slightest "beeped" commuters!




6. The novice monks played badminton behind the temple's courtyards. 
They were so strong to brave the cold weather in light clothing. 



7. I will be away for a week and hope to blog some photos from there.
Have a Happy Weekend!

    1. i often missed our food when in China, so I always brought many sachets of our White Coffee, Kopi-O, Maggie Cup noodles, Sambal Belacan and plenty of ketchup & chilly sauce packets. I sound like a Grandma!

  2. Wah, this post more pictures of you pulak.. Baru lah syiok brother !! Just came back from lunch an hour ago, no time pangsai or go toilet, lots of work today.. Doesn't feel like a Friday at all..

    Hah, while waiting for bus you enjoyed a cup of hot noodles ehh.. Especially perisa kari, the smell very nice one leh.. From far I smell it, not hungry also become hungry liao.. So other tourists stare at you or not when you were slurping kari noodles like it's at your own home?

    What else you put in your pouch? Packets of cili sauce, kari maggi noodles.. Wat else? Kakakaka..

    1. I have just listed my items in above comments. Got some more lah - all kinds of ubat, essential oils, computers and souvenirs would be carted along! I visited China 3 times the past year and didn't suffer after the bad experience from the past.

      In Japan, I only need Chilly sauces and coffee sachets. You know that all their food and desserts are so heavenly yummilicious!

  3. i like the way you wrap of the trip dei.. the unseen chengdu seems to be a nice one for doing this job.. unlike many bloggers who will end up with going home and showcasing what they have bought from the trip, haha.. hey, wise men think alike, i actually wanted to have a final post for my Kyosaka trip, more or less something like what you are doing today.. but aiyah, lazy to write, and keep procrastinating, haha!!

    1. #1.. wide and narrow lane?? i wonder why they call this wide and narrow?? but it would be interesting to see the ancient meets modern (or modern meets ancient).. it's a blend of culture which i find more interesting than just ancient or modern alone..

      #2.. aiyoh, talking about Maggie curry, hey!! i kind of miss that, have not had it for such a long time.. especially the mamak style, where they would put veggie and fishcake and then a egg beaten into the soup!! ah, nice..

      #3.. errr, are you very sure the couple were having a fight or they were just talking, you know, normal talking the mainlander style which many would mistaken as quarrel?? :p

      #4.. like i said the east meets west!! ah, nice for starbucks to have a touch of the local culture huh?? i wonder why our starbucks here never have anything malaysian in their decor??

      #5.. too many terrorism threats??

      #6.. oh the monks!! hmmmm, monks are human also and no surprise they are doing activities we normally do.. ah, i can tell you, it may start to be cold but after a while of exercising your body will be burning energy and generating heat to keep yourself warm, so it won't surprise me that the monk can sport in cold weather while wearing only thin clothes..

    2. oh, sakura sakura!! my Anay is flying to Fukuoka to see the beautiful sakura!! how envious i am!! have a safe trip and enjoy yourself to the brim.. and the same old story again: don't forget my souvenirs!! hehehehe.. and oh, that giveaway contest where you get us to guess where you will be going to on 31st August too~~ :p

    3. Wahai Semut Kami! Many thanks for your lovely comments! I truly appreciate your sincere thoughts and compliments. Every blogger has their own styles, likes, sukak, whims & so do I. My known weakness is on foodies and shopping loots to be posted in my blogs. I think I am a good busybody who provoke and stirs shit well just like you. Wakakakaka

      How dare you ask for souvenirs and giveaways like a muka tembok Great Wall Of China when I have not even announced anything?? You are so scary anyway to read my mind! I wanna unplug my antenna right away.
