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 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…

My experience at KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar (Bukit Timah)

A cozy cafe located along the streets of Bukit Timah, a walkable distance from Tan Kah Kee MRT Station. KARA Cafe and Dessert Bar is no stranger in the neighbourhood as they have been around quite some time. The cafe primary focuses on serving Los Angeles-inspired “all-day dining” food and healthy eats such as yogurt. You may wish to know that the cafe is under the popular yogurt chain, Sogurt. Recently, I was invited by the cafe to try out their newly introduced items on the menu which is inspired by a Cali-Asian theme. 

Ambience: 7.5/10 
Cozy environment to relax and chill with your friends after school. The fixtures are decorated with a nature-inspired theme. 
Tropical Smoothies 
(Left, Tropical Peach Mango; Right, Chai Avocado Shake), SGD$8.20 
I wanted to go for the standard coffee/tea, however decided to go with a smoothie instead. To my surprise, it was refreshing and yummy. I really enjoyed my tropical peach mango smoothie as the drink was well-balance and not too sweet.
