HOLIDAYS, Huangshan, Uncategorized HUANGSHAN: going home 9 May 2010

It was nice having a little getaway to Huangshan Mountain, and simply awesome that we had a 5-day public holiday. This should happen at least once a month! 😉 Since we live in Shanghai’s chaotic city, dirty air and messy streets, it was really nice to get up there on the mountains and breathe fresh air and see greenery EVERYWHERE.

Such a massive difference and it makes you realise that when people label China as all the former things (chaotic, dirty, messy, etc), it’s really only because they’re impression is based on Shanghai or Beijing or Guangzhou or any of the major cities. When you travel and your eyes are opened to the REST of China, it’s actually a beautiful place. It’s a shame that people don’t realise/see this about China…


Buh-bye Huangshan Mountain!

Down and back to reality

Enjoying our last views of Huangshan Mountain

Having lunch back in Tunxi city. This was a delicious seafood hot pot!

These are the nicest prawn crackers I’ve had. Not salty and no trans fat.
They’re practically health food 😉

A yummy “zhong zi” (sticky rice dumpling with meat and fat) on the way back to Shanghai

    Prawn crackers = love. The zhong zi looks delicious as well… nice and sticky, just how I like it!

    I hope you guys had a wonderful, relaxing holiday! Back to the grind… D:

      That brand of prawn crackers is now my fave – not too salty and not oily either. Sooo good!

    Huangshan is beautiful but what attracts this bagaholic here is the gorgeous white bag you carried on this trip. I love how slouchy and soft it looks and i also noticed it can be carried 2 ways….

    Now, what brand is that ? I need to hunt it down!!

      Oh hehe that’s a Witchery bag, an australian brand (can search for it on Google and there’s stuff up on eBay too). It’s a soft leather bag that has a strap that doubles up so it’s shorter. I also use my own scarves to cinch the bag in, so it’s really customisable 🙂
