Saturday, went to Qin Tai Road (琴台路), Digital Square (数码广场）, Chun Xi Road （春熙路） and Ke Hua North Road （科华北路）.
We visited Qin Tai Road to buy souvenirs for our friends in SG. We’d first visited the street when we’d went to watch Sichuan Opera about 3 weeks ago and found a roadside stall selling the same goods found at Jin Li Road for half the price. 🙂 As I’m buying some stuff in bulk (for some HS Band and SNCO people), I would be saving quite a lot of money if I buy stuff at a lower price.
So went back to that same stall and bought more stuff for others (but still not enough for all. How?? =x). Also walked around the street. I notice lots of Tibetian shops over there. Probably coz that area is near Tibet or something? Not too sure.
At Digital Square, went to 2 animes shop to look around. Huzz bought a super huge Master Grade Gundam while Yan Qin & Teck Hwee bought a lighter and watch respectively. I wanted to buy some anime accessories, but decided not to since if I buy it, it’ll probably just sit at home in my drawer. :-/ Ended up buying a earphone splitter (SGD$0.40) and a converter for my Energizer rechargable batteries (for charging my rechargable batteries in SG; SGD$1.60). On impulse, I also bought a proper camera bag for my Sony camera. The store assistant first showed me the Sony camera bag that came with my sis’s T10 (SGD$12) and I think from the look on my face, he knew that it was out of my budget. He then asked if I would like to look at cheaper ones and then showed me a Panasonic Lumix camera bag for only SGD$4. For some weird reason, he kept telling me that even though there is a cheaper Sony camera bag for SGD$2, he would recommend me this Panasonic one as it is of a better quality and is more shock proof. Honestly, I didn’t think too much about it and bought the Panasonic bag. 🙂
Went to Chun Xi Road after that. The main objective is to visit this music store which Huzz and I saw last week. The place didn’t disappoint except for the fact that they didn’t sell music scores and better drum sticks. :-/ Everything else was wayyyyyyy cheaper than the stuff sold in SG. And OMG, I saw this good music stand selling for SGD$10!! If not for the fact that there’s a weight limit for luggages, I’d have bought that immediately. :S :S
Ke Hua North Road, supposedly a “happening” place in Chengdu. Lots of eateries and roadside stalls there. Roadside stalls there sold stuff from fashion accessories, to toys, to puppies, to fruits and vegetables. Didn’t buy anything but it was an eye opener. 🙂 Doubt you can find a similar place in SG like that.
Anyway, went to ATT karaoke with (Li Ying, Henry, Yan Qin, Teck Hwee, Yi Long, Jia Hui, Edmund, Hwa Swee, Huzz and Mr Ling) around 9pm.
Place similar to KBox, but bigger. Though the way you choose songs are different. ATT has a dedicated computer screen at the side for you to pick your songs, control the volume, add in sound effects, etc. Of course, everything is in Mandarin and we had problems using the system at first but after a while I got the hang of it and kept selecting songs for the rest. I also threw in a few English songs (Westlife’s More Than Words and Uptown Girl; a1’s Like A Rose; Trademark’s Only Love) and 2 Hokkien songs (Chen Lei’s “Hong Jin Tao” and “Hua Hee Tio Ho”) Lol. I didn’t want to sing at first, but then it ended up fun so I sang a few songs too. Lol.
And we had Budweiser. Tasted like Guiness or Carlsberg (I can’t remember) but at least it was better than Tiger or ABC.
Reached home around 1.30am after buying McNuggets to reduce the effects of alcohol. They cut the water supply!! 🙁 Didn’t bathe that night (rather, morning). 🙁 However, when I was about to sleep at around 3.30am, I heard sounds from the toilet pipes and turned on the taps, and water burst out of it. -_-”
McDonald’s Ke Hua North Road, 1.16am
Woke up around 9.30am and didn’t feel like sleeping coz I stink. So took a bath, and wanted to sleep after that, but ended up helping Li Ying send her stuff, ate lunch, watch a movie (Swing Girls) before taking a nap. But still felt pretty tired after that.
Though I must say, sunday afternoon was super peaceful. 🙂
So is office today. =X Though I’m feeling horrible because of my stomach (diarrhoea and no appetite). 🙁
