Last night we wanted to go to 后桷, but the cab driver mispointed us to 前桷. Owell, just going to some place new. We just walked around for a bit since the touristy stores are still open. Then we went into the Sex & the City bar/lounge where there are two go-go girls whom I originally thought were hookers. Anyways, I had a good time with Hanni, looking at the go-go girls, asking the DJ to play Shakira's Hips Don't Lie, and just, chilling. it's all good.
Today I actually made a point of going to church, and thus waking up really early. Woke up at 8-ish, got ready, rode my bike in my dress (!) and took the train all the way to δΈœη›΄ι—¨, which was a loooonnnnggg way. Then I got out of the station finally, but I had no idea how to get there. I thought it would be really close but looking left and looking right, I had no idea where the building would be. I thought I could walk there and asked others where the bldg was, and nobody knew. I gave up the idea of walking finally because I was already late. Got a cab, and it turned out that I couldnt really walk there. I was on the cab for at least 5 mins. Anyways, the cab driver finally found the bldg and he was nice enough to only charge me for 10 yuans instead of 11.
Went inside the bldg and then I realized I had no idea which floor the chapel was on. So I was looking up the directory and still couldn't find it. The security guy came up to me and asked me where I was going and I asked him which floor the church was at. He said, "ε€–ε›½δΊΊηš„?" I embarassedly said, yes. It was a little strange because I am apparently Chinese and speak Chinese but I attend a foreigners' church. Well, I can't help if my church is consisted of not so many asians.
Church was church; boring as usual. It was a family ward.
Too hungry to continue. Will finish entry later.
