ALP 2015 [Day 005]

Today is theme briefing day where the professors share more about their project for us to decide on what we want to work on for the next 3+ months.

Here's an example....

They have this huge potrait of "Electromagnetic Wave Spectrum" huge up at the lobby

Yet another try-out at a noodle house along back street.

Vegetarian noodles ftw!

So there's nothing on for the afternoon as the Batch 2 people had to settle the opening of bank accounts.

I headed out with Felix and Ryan and our first stop is at the drinks outlet at...no surprise..back street!

Something interesting we spotted was MIKE tea

Pretty decent, not too strong ice cream coffee for 5RMB

DANG we spotted this hip truck while waiting to cross the road. Totally had no idea what is was for until...

Very calm and friendly with music playing...

Then suddenly the water jet starts spraying towards both side of the road!

Just across the road is the bus interchange.

Fees are pretty decent here:

  • 1-2 RMB for non-air condition buses
  • 2-3 RMB for air-condition buses

This is like a little public transport taking exercise where all we went a little further - 5 stops!

Ending up at.... Intime city

If you remember....the first mall is named In city...something going on with the naming convention?

It's really just a group of bored people roaming around the shopping mall while counting down to dinner at Green Tea Restaurant [绿茶餐厅]

Here's a machine selling errrrr... fresh orange juice (they look fresh?)

Here's a shop from errr... paris known as Sergent Major

Someone make a guess of what the shop might be selling?

That's right.....baby apparel!

Something interested that we can learn from touring a shopping mall. They have this app where can you scan the QR code and get a queue number and continue shopping till you are notified. Pretty nice!

Totally curious why people are termed as dogs for being single
