iT's still Day 1^^

next...
journey to Hangzhou...

stopped at a small village on the way there~
XiTang Water Village
kinda dark~
the sky turns dark at 5pm as it's winter~

took a cruise~
a very traditional boat^^
during the cruise... i was almost turning into iced chocz...
damn cold... + the cold breeze...
cause I didn't wear Long Johns
(warm underwear-long sleeve shirt+trousers-100% cotton)
only a winter jacket with 2 T inside.. + jeans... >.<"

the resident house are made by bricks n woods, by the river~
a very peaceful place... serene~
there's smthg special about these houses...
they r all linked.. with a corridor...
thus, during rainy days, they can still walk around without umbrella...
in olden days...
these ppl sell n buy things from the boat that stop infront of their houses...

went for a walk in the village~
narrow paths...
they can actually chit chat with neighbours by juz opening their window^^

went in to one of the house...
classic~

nice garden~
u ll feel very free, nice, comfortable in this area....

dined at TianXing Lou~
tasted their specialty..
Dong Bo Rou... nt bad~
but there's one thing that I don't like~
... their dishes are very oily!!!
can't tahan...
4 vegetables... they ll put lots of oil 2..>.<"
very unhealthy...

watched a show after that...
杭州西湖之夜歌舞秀
it's a show about the chinese legend stories..
eg: Romeo and Juliet, The White Snake Legendary, Yu Fei, Kuan Yin...
indeed a nice show...
took a few pics only~

playing chinese instrument..
one of the best part~
the end...

the place I rest~ Zzzz...
Ramada Hotel~
quite nice ~ ^^
