shall summarize the entire week's trip for those who are reading .
long bus rides , which was our sleeping pill for the trip , free and easy after 6 pm everyday was like heaven & freedom for us all . roaming the streets of xiamen , getting good deals , bargaining etc.going into dark alleys in search for good buys.Purchasing snacks from road side stalls , which were deliciously good , midnight snacks as well .
had weird stares from people around , we ( which consisted of 2 girls and 6-8 guys )
we shopped till our ankles ached & were the last few to leave the place.
back to the hotel for more fun ,
pool / snooker / table tennis / monopoly deal all night .
guys crashed at shinhye's and my room ,
had a freaky time on the second night , all thanks to clarence.
which sent us shivering & jumping off our seats at the slightest sound made.
wild thoughts ran through our minds , analyzing everything that was happening .
what if the angry china man next door had a gun/chopper/axe?
spooky wind howling outside our window .
hence, clarence and marc had to watch shinhye and i fall asleep.
factories and company visit all day long ,
bumpy ferry rides to taiwan , which made everyone dizzy and sick in their guts.
cultural visits as well , an eye opener to most of us .
nearly froze to death on the night cruise ride.
universities and school visits were quite fun ,
interacting in chinese/hokkien w the students was the most hilarious thing ever .
their weird / uncomfortable questions such as
Q : will you bring a china boyf back?
Q : why do china people in singapore fail in getting a singaporean girlf?
we ate at restaurants on most nights , bought lotsa stuff from roadsidefoodstall.
washed our hair at 11pm in the night at a hairsalon ,
trishaw ride to our hotel
left " town " at 12 midnight .
icecream for supper on most nights
half an hour to an hour of sleep on most nights cuz , guys were at our room everynight watching soccer ,nba , talking crap , drinking shots , monopoly deal.
our clean hotel room , turned into a pig sty every night .
