25th december and christmas morning it is, sadly there weren't any churches around to catch the christmas mass, so i just hoped to the coffee shop for my breakfast take a look at the display on the buffet, Pork dim sum, Fried cucumber, Boiled eggs, Fried salmon, Rice, Congee, Congee with pork and egg, baked beans, sausages, fruits and pastries.
MY stomach can take just sausages baked beans fruits and pastries in the morning.
Grab a delicious looking sugar coated croissant bit into it and urgh! whats that weird taste? i look at it and go oh **** ham! My dad laughed at me and says " so you got your xmas gift ehh!! I make those frowny faces and settle for jam and bread and an espresso. The bus came and the rest of the group was late. and there was this group of three couples always running to be first to sit in the first seats of the bus or otherwise, made my blood boil.
The morning was fairly cold and the first stop was to the mineral museum i wonder why these things are made mandatory by the tourism department they just don't serve purposes, yeah right I'm gonna buy a 1 lakh rs worth dragon made in jade and survive indian customs? but what ever its worth passing the time and just gazing at it and opening your mouth in shock by looking at the cost, I had a plan to survive 7 days with no smoking and being there wasn't helping at all every one smokes anywhere even in the museum even the girls.
An amazing sight to see was we indians wore just thin sweaters or jackets while the nationals wore thick very thick jackets seemed liked they had heaters in them or something! Whenever i wore my flip flops or a short sleeved shirt id be looked at and a few come up and say, "You! Strong man! No feel Cold?"
speaking of chinese accents the tour guide was hilarious his name was richard but he says it Lichard we nick named him lijat papad.
let me quote some of his speaking.
" Ahh! we go to mineral museum vely good!! Ahh, You take something home Vely good Ahh, You take some souvenir for your girl fliend ahh Sooo good, Good to see ahh, Then we go for indian lunch ahhh soo goood Indian food Vely good, I take you there Ahhh, Sooo Good indian lunch rely guud "
we guys laughed hard whenever he spoke and that guy never minded it. While explaining he would speak as if he's falling asleep.
Ahhh soo good, Now a few pictures, I'm sorry we were not allowed to click pictures while in the museum but i managed to get two pics. And an image of this beast parked outside the museum
then we head out to the indian restaurant for our meals, since i was really tired said why not and had a martini.
The chinese believe some number bring them bad luck or is a curse and hence even buildings chuck those floors out
a few pictures of cars i spotted while heading of to the next part of the tour in shenzhen, be prepared its awesome give me a few minutes to resize the images.
P.s no jokes intended for any nationality or accents
