Here's a quick update with some pictures that we took during our short audition trip to Shanghai back in February. I almost forgotten about all these pictures coz we couldn't share it earlier on and it was just sitting in my external hard disc till now. =P This was my 2nd trip to Shanghai and I've already done most of the touristy stuffs during my first trip so I didn't do much sightseeing this time around.
Arrived Shanghai early in the morning after an overnight flight from Penang-KL-Shanghai. Bro's first time in Shanghai, he looks excited huh...hahaha!! =P
We booked our flights and hotel last minute and guess what we ended up with? Both of us burst into laughter the moment we stepped into our room. OMG...a round bed with red velvet background and a mirror above...for us...seriously?!?! Even more hilarious...bro's leg was too long for the bed!! And when we saw the bathroom, we can't stop laughing!! Is this a hotel or a motel...lol!! We didn't bother much about it coz we were rushing to go for our audition. But when we came back in the afternoon, they put a curtain for the bathroom already...thank god...lol!! But generally the hotel was pretty decent. So funny!
After our audition, we walked to XinTianDi for lunch at DinTaiFung. This was my recommendation coz I preferred the xiao long bao here.
Bro's touristy photos at XinTianDi.
After accompanying me back to the hotel, bro continued his sightseeing around the city. His first stop...YuYuan Garden.
Next stop...The Bund. Seeing this now makes me feel absolutely blessed and lucky. Few months ago we were just here as tourists but shortly after, this was where we started our Amazing Race around China. The Bund is always gonna be a special place for both of us. =)
I decided to stay in the hotel room to do my work (yes I had to work over the weekend) instead of going out coz I had work deadlines to meet and it was so freakin' cold out there!
The next morning, bro woke up early to go to Qibao Ancient Street alone before catching our flight back to Malaysia in the afternoon. It was raining and freezing that morning so he almost turned into a popsicle when he came back to the hotel.
That's all for our super short journey to Shanghai...a journey that gave us the opportunity of a lifetime to be in the Amazing Race!!
