Guangzhou, Panyu, Chimelong Vacation (I)

十一月 19, 2009

最近忙什麼?論文要改, 要換季,要整理月結單……時間好像妣不夠用似的。忙得我透不過氣來。肩頸就是硬朴朴的,自知都是壓力壓出來的。剛剛的週末,終於可以抽時間一家人去好好的玩玩,暫時把所有東西都放在一旁。

Recently, I am soooo busy. Thanks to Ron’s greetings  from Oz. Other than review of my thesis, winter finally comes that I need to prepare wardrobe change. It’s also time to get my bank statement nicely filed. All the stress come straight away that I am suffering frmo neck and shoulder pain. I need REST definitely. So my family and I headed to Chimelong in Panyu, a small town in Guangzhou, PRC for a short trip last weekend.

是次是預祝媽咪六十大壽,旅費都是由我跟妹妹兩口子分擔的。當然啦,只是前奏,十二月再有慶祝活動,因為媽咪是十二月生日的。要遷就我的關係,就選了短程番禺長隆兩日一夜遊。

The key objective of this trip is to celebrate Mom’s 60th birthday in advance. You know what, 60 is an important age for Chinese. In the past, we have an old Chinese saying, " It is rare for people to reach their 70″.  Therefore 60 would be a milestone that marked the “last ten years" of our lives according to the logic of the ancient Chinese. No matter how low-key a person, he or she must host a big celebration for reaching the age of 60th. The message behind is just like the “Thanksgiving" of the yankies — Appreciate the luck of living up till 60.  Therefore, we gonna have series of birthday celebration for Mom in Dec.

五時十五起床梳洗,超早!之後再出發乘七時五十分的船到蓮花山,一上船就倒頭大睡了。是次入住酒店新翼,一下車就有非洲原始feel,像一座非洲皇宮。

We booked an early session for the jet-flow which started off at 7:50a.m. So I needed to get up at 5:15. REALLY early!!! Therefore, I just fell asleep immediately after abroad.  Upon arrival, I found that we gonna get settled in a new phrase. Wow!!! It was just like an Africa Palace!!

接待處是我最喜歡的一個地方,因為其設計實在太有意思了,萬獸之王一家迎賓,氣勢非凡。只是如果這裡有賭場,嘿,賭仔就肯定被此等殺氣殺個片甲不留。

Reception is my favorite. The design is sooo vivid!!! Being greeted by a family of Lions, you seemed entered a Safari!!!

:::這張就像烈日下覓食般,氣勢非凡!:::

:::This shot is my favorite, sooo vivid!!, Just like under the Sun!!:::

安頓好就去了久違了的中餐廳飲茶,出品跟服務退步了。唯一值得讚的是新換的茶具及越式春卷:

After get settled, we headed to the Chinese restaurant to yum cha. Food there is so & so.  This is my 4th visit. I found that their quality is getting worse. However, the new pottery set and the Spring roll in Vietnam style worth a credit.

之後就去了番禺步行街,當然有shopping啦!買了樽領毛衣及PU膠印花外套一件。喲!天氣實在太冷,最後竟然要把買的都穿上身當加衣才行!街邊小食非常吸引,我們只買了玉米因為要早食晚飯就不敢多吃。結果?失望!如同嚼蠟!

Next stop is Panyu shopping arcade. I’ve bought a turtle neck knit jumper and a PU printed crocodile skin jacket.  The temperature fell all a sudden that I finally needed to put all the new clothes!! Snack booths along the street are attractive indeed. Since we planned to ha e early dinner, we  just tried the sweet corn. Well, really disappointing, no taste at all.

晚上吃日本菜,餐廳設計fusion和風feel,食物出品可以接受。我點了一個天婦羅可鍋飯,非常滿意!飯焦配面豉湯,yummy!!

We had a Japanese dinner. The interior design of the restaurant has mixed with Western and Japanese culture, quite nice.  Quality of the food is quite good. My Tempura hot bowl was fantastic!!

今晚重頭戲是馬戲團表演。人多得不了!粗略估計近一萬人!全場滿座!

After dinner, we set off for Chimelong’s famous Circus show. I was stunned to find out that it was FULL HOUSE!!!! That means there was roughly 100K audiences!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

晚上卡孔雀吧聊天吃冰淇淋至十時,實在太累了~~~~~~~
Our first day trip ended with ice cream and drinks at the Peacock Bar.  A must-go spot with really nice interior design.  The most unforgettable is one of their huge carpet which is printed with Peacock’s feathers and is used as a wall paper rather than putting on the floor!!
