China and Hongkong Trip, May 2012

Finally, I am able to write about my trip!  Sorry I have been really busy these past few weeks.  I went to Hangzhou, China for a business trip.  We were there to check out some fabrics for our products.  China is a big big place, Hangzhou in particular quite big! It was a cool weather with a bit of rain showers in the afternoon. 
Going around and about in China is pretty difficult, one should be well-versed in Mandarin.  We stayed there for 4 days, and it's all work, work, work!
After China, Hongkong was our next destination.  Of course after work, there should be play!  Play = Shopping! For me, Hongkong so far, is the ultimate food and shopping destination in Asia (aside from the Philippines, of course!). We stayed in Marco Polo Hotel, which I totally recommend if you guys are going to stay in Hongkong.  Click here for the website.

just arrived in China (notice my large handcarry bag and eye bags?), pose first before work!
this was our hotel, The Garden Hotel

Day 2 - me and food shots

I guess this is the "Starbucks" in China, SPR Coffee

Random shots:

This made me laugh! I love it!
In fairness, yes this is refreshing especially if you're hungry :)
I miss KFC!
Aren't these cute?  These are KFC China's delivery vehicle
this is their toll gate, gorgeous!

These are some of my photos in China, with regards to my HK trip, I decided not to take photos anymore because I've already posted my last trip just this February and it's pretty much the same (click here) .  I was concentrating on shopping so decided not to carry my SLR as it will just be in the way of trying on some stuff! Haha!  

Watch out for my next post, I will show you some of my purchases in Hongkong!
