Went to downtown China today. In order to get there, we had to arrange a tour guide to come along and take us to a ferry. We had to go along with this other Malaysian family to China in order to make it more fun. The little eight year old girl named Amanda from the other family kept my little sister company for the whole trip, so the kids were occupied, which was good. The ride from Hong Kong to China took about an hour, but I don't really remember that well. When we got there, our tour guide named Richard took us first to this Jade Museum where I bought a lot of nice little artifacts for souvenirs. I also got some nice jewelry and this bronze horse for decoration. haha. Don't ask why. Later we went to this flea market to check around, and then we stopped at this amusement park to take pictures. After all that, we went to lunch at this nice hotel. Then our family split up and another tour guide named Beth took us to this underground market where we got all these replica Rolexes and Omegas, and replica Louis Vuitton handbags and Parker pens. It was crazy. It was also illegal, but who the hell cares? Yea... anyways... it was pretty fun. All my Christmas shopping is taken care of right now, and all I had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride. Pretty fun. When we got back to Hong Kong, had some dinner and then walked back to the Miramar. That was it for the day... just rested up. Watched Batman Forever... had a dream about Nicole Kidman... haha.
