The food there is in China is not very tasty leh, or maybe i not used to the food.
The lunch sucks, and we had to finish the food we took. The soup tastes like plain water.
I thought their china assent would be very strong lo, but it turned out still okay leh.
We can still understand what they are trying to say, but sometimes we will keep saying 'huh' la.

Woke up super early to prepare,
and make sure that i took everything from singapore here.
When all of us got ready and waited in the lobby,
coach still havent come.
Made a call to her to find that she just woke up.
The 'shunjiejie' already angry lo.
We made her angry on the last day ):
We waited for coach on the bus,
it was quite a while.
Finally, she came.
and shunjiejie said she had to come back to take the wushu people to the airport at 7.
now, it's alr 6.30 then.
Nobody said a word la,
because it was coach's fault what.
Then reached the airport.
checked in our luggages.
then after a lot of stuffs,
got on the plane.
After the plane started off for a while,
a fight broke out between two china man.
i think is fighting for the restroom.
The young man hit the old man until he nose bleed.
he bleed alot la, until the whole carpet got the blood.
that time i need to go toilet also dont dare go lo.
then got announcement asking if any doctors onboard the plane can help.
many doctors came.
