kunming photoblog

**backdated post**


finally time to brag about my short kunming trip, since its for work, not much sight-seeing pictures la...just manage to sneak a lil time here & there to shop and see the local scene.
stayed at a very good b'ness hotel - green lake hotel (voted one of china's best business hotels of 2007 by Forbes - quite impressive la) the price also super impressive - mega expensive la, sure wins hands-down on the room and meeting packages if compared to kay-el!!
in front of the hotel is the beautiful green lake (so obvious rite with name of the hotel - like duhhh!)

pictures take from the lake - lots of seagull, quite serene but weather was very cold.

this is the famous restaurant and their fantastic service that i blog about earlier. since we were the vip, we got to sat at the largest table in the restaurant to fit 20 -25 people. since yunnan has so many ethnic groups, the dances and songs for the night was amazing...enjoy the photos.





sexy girls dancing...bells were stuck to their costume so when they move they make tingling rings.

then off to stone forest (a world heritage site) for a half day visit....that's the only touristy place i went. another spectacular place to unwind and get lost in the stone woods.
look at the beautiful formations done by god's hands. see an elephant?



outer area of the stone forest....there's a world famous golf course just 15min drive from here...daddy would love to hit some balls here...me too la...dun care the score.

some ethnic handicrafts, didn't buy so take pic lor.

summore handicrafts at the birds & flower market...

guess where i shopped the most?? i so lazy to bargain and haggle...i ended up in wal-mart and carrefour to get all my stuff....that is until the last day when i still had lots of RMB to splurge that i went to a souvenir shop at the lake for last minute shopping. got a beautiful art piece drawn on paper...hope to decorate the house, but dunno where to hang.

now with all my goodies, need shipping boxes home.
