Vibrant Shanghai: Part 1

Hey all, I’ll start posting my travelogue today. The next few posts will only focus on this. Enjoy the post and I hope these posts will influence you to visit Shanghai one day!

I embarked on a journey to the land of Shanghai, China with my mum from 14th-21st Nov 2004. It was definitely a trip to remember because what you see in China is totally different from my own country in terms of food, weather, culture and so on.

Serving as the largest base of Chinese industrial technology, the important seaport and China’s largest commercial and financial center, Shanghai draws the attention of the whole world.

We reached KLIA at 10pm and began the check-in process. The check-in process took roughly 2 hours. I was sweating as I stand there for quite a long time. Those MAS personnels were damn slow at work. When everything was fine, we went over to the departure hall. And while waiting to board plane, I overheard a conversation…  

Aunt#1: “Wah! This bread costs RM7!!”

Aunt#2: “Where you buy wor? How come so expensive???”

Aunt#1: “(pointing to the shop) Neh… that shop lor… I think better ask Vicky (our guide) ’bout that!”

😛 Those aunties were unfortunate but they learned their lesson! They must be thinking KLIA is just like a normal grocery.

After waiting for some 15 minutes, we finally left KL for Shanghai.

I’m literally speechless upon witnessing such beautiful view.
