ALP 2015 [Day 004]

Outing day! We had an organized tour today with 80+ student moving around..

First stop! Yu quan Campus [ZJU has like 5 campuses...]

Here's the first iconic symbol we see at the place we alighted!

Chairman Mao

We stopped by the campus for lunch that turned out to be really decent and less oily!

Lunch for 21RMB

Headed for some drinks after lunch and the awesome thing about this shop is they accept the student card so we can use the money given to pay. :D

Apparently they have embryo milk tea on their menu

and that guy seemed to know i was going to snap a photo...

Another interesting sight is them placing their cleaning equipment just outside the washroom which is like inside the canteen

They have some benefits for being a blood donor.

4000ml - Zhejiang province "3 free" policy

They have great creative and profound meaning for the chinese language.

That reads:

Magical Selfie instrument

After we headed back to Campus, we had a short rest before heading out again. This time we decided to try out the public bus and head down 2 stops away for the In city shopping centre.

Dinner dinner at Grandma's place (外婆家)

It's a decent restaurant where food is great and affordable for us.

1st joke... Thinking we managed a legit vegetable dish.. green peas appeared!

That just told you how much we need to brush up on our chinese.

Another interesting dish.. Golden mushroom

Enokitake

Apparently thinking out of the box is common here

Some Walmart shopping to aid digestion...
