5 days in Shanghai, Hangzhou & Yiwu!!!

Hello! I'm FINALLY going to blog about my trip to China which took place a year back! I was too lazy to edit my photos because I took over 500 photos on my phone (k nuff said)! I initially wanted to split the blogpost into (day 1, day 2 etc) but decided to just combine everything into one blogpost so it's easier for you guys to read! Oh yea, didn't went there for a holiday but it was for a school assignment! 

The main objective of this trip was to visit the famous wholesale market at Yiwu.You could really get a lot of cheap stuffs over there such as stationeries, accessories, clothes, toys, electronics etc. They have almost everything there, thus my task was to visit the wholesale market can get something back to Singapore to sell and then do a short presentation. My itinerary was rather simple I say because almost 40% of my time was spent on traveling alone! We needed to stopover at Shanghai on the first day and then take a 3 hour bus ride on the coach to Yiwu (meanwhile stop over at Hangzhou to visit their famous lake.) on the second day. The third day was to complete our business assignment and then head back to Shanghai for shopping and sight seeing! 


I just realized I have the most crappiest fringe ever. Hahaha!


All ready to visit China for the first time! #eggcited








Settled down at a Vegetarian Restaurant on Day 2 (was traveling to Yiwu) Stopped over at Hangzhou for sightseeing.

Orh Nee,Yam Cake from Buttertrade

Ever since when I was little boy, whenever I attend a wedding dinner, the food item that I always anticipate the most has got to be the orh nee dessert. I mean who doesn't loves yam! So creamy yet sweet! Sometimes I wish I can find them at dessert stalls but you can rarely find them nowadays. Recently, I was greeted with an orh nee cake right at my door step thanks to Buttertrade

The cake is from Bloomsbury Bakers delivered by Buttertrade.

My experience at Gills N Shells (Lavender)

I was invited for a food tasting session at Gills N Shells not long ago to try out their new dishes. Gills N Shells is a restaurant/drinking place that is inspired by the ocean. The restaurant specialises in seafood, thus they offer a vary of seafood dishes. They are dedicated to serve quality food with the best quality. Gills N Shells is easily accessible as they are located just behind Hotel Boss facing the river. The nearest train station is at Lavender MRT Station, thus it will only take a 5 minutes walk to get to this restaurant.

Gills N Shells recently launched their seafood platter served in a dim sum basket. As mentioned, there is a variety of seafood choices you can select from. However, there is a minimum order of three seafood choices. If you are an adventurous person or you can eat a lot, you may wish to order the All-in-A Basket Special. It comes along with all the seafood listed in the menu.

My internship in Japan (Niigata)

If you haven't read my previous blogposts about my overseas industrial attachment at Japan you can click on the links below: http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/09/exploring-niigata-japan-kite-museum.html http://www.uncletehpeng.com/2014/08/my-trip-to-japan-niigata-day-1.html''

Working in Japan is one of my greatest experience so far! The people there are so nice to communicate too and they are not only patient but very kind too. Despite the communication barrier, we were still able to translate our body language to talk to each other. The only funny thing is when we have to use Google Translate to talk to each other. Above is a picture of a huge tentage that my colleague and I built. Do note that everything including the tent sheets are made from scratch! 

I was attached to a logistics company during my internship period! The company has many years of experience in the industry thus I learnt plenty of things about administration & practical work. Japanese are very passion…
