March . GuangZhou

As said, my March was really busy, busy with all Furniture exhibitions that held in Asia.
I went to Singapore and Bangkok fair 3 weeks ago.
Then, rest a week before started my 1 week China trip.
March was really exhausted till I fall sick.
Anyway, today I am going to blog about my trip in GuangZhou.
I have been going to GZ many times since I started this job, just that I didn't blog about it.
Reason? Might because I don't really like the trip to China, it always too tired!












































Started my trip with a cup of cappuccino while waiting for the morning flight.



*Sky was so blue* Flying off with MAS this time.
So, wish me safe flight!



Not sure if I was too hungry? The omelette set they served on that morning was pretty good!



Sometimes when I couldn't fall to sleep inside the plane, I will look through the beautiful sky from the window next to me.



I didn't use any entertainments provided by the airline, coz I was chasing the Kdrama, Phantom by So Ji-Sub. In love with him after watching the Master's Sun.



It seems a long flight for me although the flight from KL to GZ only takes 4 hours long.
I seriously just can't wait to get off from the plane!



Once arrived at GZ airport, we took a bus to DongGuan as we have few factories visit on the next day. Yea! Busy day starts right after the long journey!



We arrived at the hotel at 7pm sharp! Tired to max!
It was lucky that we got sponsored by the new supplier for such a great and cozy room!
It's really kind of them!



A must have after a long day travelling!



We had simple dinner at the restaurant inside the hotel.
Overall just good!



Had a very good discussion the next day with the new supplier.



Also a very good lunch with them.
Really appreciate all their hospitality during the stay in DongGuan.
Nice to meet you, Ceci!



After a day in DongGuan, we headed to ShenZhen for 2 nights stay.
This Shui Du Holiday Hotel is awesome!



Just cost about RMB599 and you can get such a big room. So worth it!
 









































Before dinner, selfie in front of the big mirror.
I would like to have such big mirror in my room too!


Decided to just had a dinner nearby the hotel.
We ordered quite a lot for just 2 of us.
Right, we couldn't finish all of them especially the fried rice which served the last!



Sorry to say so, but can't you just clean up a bit for your restaurant?
It's a place for food, how can it be so D.I.R.T.Y? 
Anyway, "Welcome to China"!



Wrapped up all the discussions in ShenZhen and then started the journey to Gz for the CIFF furniture fair!


Not my first time going with the high speed train in ShenZhen, but too many times.
It is fast yet it is too bored to stay inside for about an hour to GZ.



Check in the Landmark Hotel located at HaiZhu Square.
I would like to give a BIG thumb up for this hotel in terms of their service, room cleaning, friendly and helpful staffs! Awesome!



First thing to do after check in and drop off our luggage is to have a BEER!



Mr Jan! He is not only my good working partner, also a big brother and a good friend of mine!
We always enjoy drinking beer together when we are in overseas!



The food in GZ always good.
First day dinner already make all of us "slurp"!





We travelled from HaiZhu Square to XinGangDong where the exhibition is by subway.
It cost only RMB4 for one way.
You can get off from either PaZhou or XinGangDong station to the exhibition center.
It consider a long journey which is about 45 mins yet it is better than you stuck in the traffic if you go by taxi.
GZ traffic is not as good as in KL.



Overall, the first day was good at the exhibition, except the long day walk.



Had a good dinner at Lucy's cafe located at Shamian Island which nearby the Pearl River.



It is a must visit restaurant for us whenever we travel to GZ.



It consider quite a special restaurant in GZ because you can sit outside with the nice weather.
Plus it serves all kind of food from Chinese to Western too.



Get some selfie while walking from Shamian Island back to Landmark hotel.



My Favourite piece.
Oppss. Didn't realize my hair grown so long already!



The weather was pretty chilling! Nice!



If you visit GZ, probably you shouldn't miss out the Shamian Island.



The building at Shamian Island are totally different with the one you see in the city as this place was divded into two concessions given to France and the United Kingdom by Qing Goverment in the 19th century, and all the buildings are still remain the same old look until now.



It was a long walk from Shamian Island back to HaiZhu Square.
Took us about 1 hour back to our hotel, but it‘s all worth because of the nice weather and also the nice view along the walk.



It wasn't a good day on the second day in GZ.



While inside the subway.
Always pack and no seat for us!



The exhibition hall is crazy big in GZ.
It probably the largest exhibition center in the world with 12,174,000sq ft.



I know! I look extremely tired on my face!



This is the map of the whole exhibition center.



This is only a small part inside the exhibition center.
You couldn't imagine how big it is if you never been before!



Finished the second day with a great company dinner!
This is another must visit restaurant in GZ ~ Hong Xing Seafood Restaurant



They serve all kind fresh seafoods.


Quite an interesting place to give a try.



Didn't get the chance to take the food photo, but take some good pictures with cool people.



Great to catch up with Jenny and Joyce!
Overall it was a great night with great people!



Weather is getting bad the next day.
It rained the whole day! It's whole day non-stop raining!



Was pretty cold that day.
So we went for steamboat dinner at Beijing Road.



A random picture after the dinner.



Wet all day long!



Ended the night with a group picture.
Saying byebye to all British people who are leaving GZ tomorrow.
Nice meeting all of you!



Last day in GZ!
After half day at the exhibition, we went to Beijing Road for some sightseeing and shopping.


Look at the tall guy behind me :p


Me at Beijing Road!


What a coincidence that I met my hero Lee Min Ho there! Muacksss!


Always good to catch up with Jenny from PanYu.


Yea! Yea! Last dinner in GZ, and we all ready to go back home tomorrow!


Had a good big breakfast in the early morning before heading to airport!


Waiting the airport bus!
My face can tell you how much I miss my home!


Although the trip was exhausted yet I think I do enjoyed it.
Meeting new people from different places, tasted nice food along the trip gave me a another great experience in my life!

Thanks so much!


And I hope you enjoy reading it too!
XOXO
