I woke up at 3am and 5 plus in the morning as I could see the day light coming in from the window. I didn't realise the morning sun in China was 2 hours earlier than in Singapore. The breakfast was not too bad with a good spread of chinese and western food. The kids were not as enthusiastic as we thought when we reached the West Lake (Xi Hu). We took the bus ride that tour us for a full round at 80RMB each person (total 240RMB). Instead of admiring the beauty, we were taken away by the gentle morning breeze and felt asleep.
It was the Chinese Dumpling Festival and there were throngs of people everywhere. The bus could hardly move as fast as it should. Sorry to my wife who wanted to visit a few places but with the kids, we had to change our plans.
We had lunch after searching for somewhere decent and the kids were tired at a expensive sandwich bar. They served decent gluten free pasta which the kids like. Each plate was at 58rmb (SGD 11) and my wife ordered for me a dish that comprise of corn cake, mushrooms, avocado, prawns and scrambled eggs. I finished it in less than 5 minutes, guess I was way too hungry. Then she went to order a cheese cake and got me a vegetable burger which costs 35rmb. It was too expensive for lunch in my opinion.
The kids wanted a toy so we went to look for a 7-11 local store and finally we found it and got it for the kids. We also went to Uniqlo and got some T-shirts and all. Prior to that, we took the train ride to the railway station to collect our train tickets for tomorrow ride back home.
