Yeah~~ I was back on Sunday, but I didn't have any time to write about my experiences.
Day 1: Wednesday.
We touched down at around 7-8 a.m. & it was freezing. We all rushed into the bathroom to put on jackets & long johns. My family had to wait for the other family, but they took ages to change, so my family went to collect our luggage & THEIR luggage.
1 luggage trolley could fit all
our luggages (5 luggages). 2
luggage trollies were needed to fit all their luggage.
luggages) Yes. My Father was already yelling at us for bringing 5 luggages. They were like, "Oh man... Not enough bags!" 8 luggages!
We visited the Temple of Heaven that day. It was frezing with a capital FREEZING. The winds were strong enough to blow me to the America. Not really, but I was nearly knocked off my feet. & my toes were frozen.
Day 2: Thursday
We went to the Great Wall! My left hand is valueble now! It touched the stones of the Great Wall! & my bloody big brother tossed a snowball at my face. I nearly swallowed the ice. Bleagh. But...... It was fun. My bro wanted to take a block of ice back, but I knocked it out of his hands & it broke. Heeheehee! I'm mean.
We stopped by a shop to get some hot drinks. My bro bought a marble plaque of the Great Wall there. There was a dragon in the plaque too~ 200 Yuan. Surprisingly, it was quite warm up the Wall.
Day 3: Friday
Forbidden City! Very cold there. I found 2 Jiao (20 cents) while the workers were shovelling ice out of this huge brass pot that was used for fire-fighting those days. Hooray for me! Money! The Snicker Bars there was bloody expensive. 9 Yuan for 1 bar! Geez!
We went to Wang Fu Jing in the evening. It's a kind of market that sells all those fried insects. I ate a snake! A SNAKE!! It tasted okay... I pity those starfish that were going to be eaten. I also found these Snicker Bars that were twice the length of a normal bar for 6 Yuan. I bought 2 for 10 Yuan & 5 Jiao. Hey, it was a discount.
Day 4: Saturday
Meh... Spent all morning packing up. We visited 前门 (Qian Men) that evening. I kinda got addicted to the Mutton there. BBQ Mutton. Tasty! It took forever to find a taxi. Then, our taxi got lost, resulting us paying the lady driver 42 Yuan. Poor us. Then, my bro lost his beanie. Probably left it in the taxi.
I got into trouble at the airport. First, they made me dig out my luggage, & then they ran another security check because of a bottle of hair oil, 2 phone chargers & my bro's plaque. Damn him.
Day 5: Sunday, transitting in Singapore
I hate the security check now. Apparently, I had left a scissors in the luggage. My poor scissors! It was from my Mother's time! Noooooooo.... One thing is, it got through Malaysia's security, it got through Singapore's security, it got through China's security & they only found it now. What the heck??
Well, here I am. When flying, 3/4 of the flight landing (We transitted in Singapore, because we took Singapore Airlines) felt as if we landed on a sack of potatoes. Seriously! Only the flight from Beijing --> Singapore was smooth. I barely felt that one. The rest was like landing on rocks & potatoes. Hard & very bumpy.
We took 2 different types of airlines.
1. Sinapore Airlines (Malaysia --> Singapore, Singapore --> Beijing, Beijing --> Singapore)
2. Silkair (Singapore --> Malaysia)
Wel, that sums up my holiday. My poor scissors!
