So our third day in Beijing was pretty much a “tourist” day. We decided to head to the Forbidden city for a day tour by ourselves.
I’ve been there once when I was 12 yrs old! It’s around 15 years edi ! OMG how time flies…
I still remember the last time I was there, their public toilet has no doors! I remember clearly that a little American girl who was peeing at the cubicle next to mine turned to her mum and said, “Mum, they can see me.” hahaha
I was praying so hard that they have already installed doors to all the public toilets the minute I stepped into the city.
Thank god they did ==” Or maybe I should thank the Olympics instead hahaha. Without the Olympics I dont think they will ever realize it because they are too used to it edi …
We reached there around noon and the sun was seriously shining like there is no tomorrow. When we reached Gin was like where is the Forbidden city? I pointed and said NEH! The door so big u cannot see meh ==” Then she said, I dont think it’s this one! I was like, “fine, you ask police.” Then we went to this police and asked, “where is the forbidden city?” He replied in a very irritated face “THERE.” ==” The moral of the story is dont bring Gin when u’re travelling because she is quite bad at recognizing buildings ==”
We ordered fried rice, and it’s the most expensive fried rice I have ever eaten! We waited around 30 mins for the duck because they were still roasting it. We got really hungry so Gin was like, “WHERE IS MY DUCK??” She said the same thing over and over again whenever there is a waitress/waiter passing by ==” I had to say sorry to the American couple that sat next to our table…
We ordered half a duck! I tried Peking duck once in Beijing, that was like 15 years ago la. It tasted like shit, sorry… But the one here in Quan Ju De is seriously the king of Peking ducks. The skin is so juicy and crispy, especially the duck breast!! Gosh, I can hear “ka zi ka zi” when I was chewing it ok, literally!
To be honest, I was quite excited on the last night of our Beijing trip because I hated it there so much =(
I wanted to change our flight on the second day but we had many tasks so we couldn’t.
So, we didnt do much on this trip, just eat, sleep, and walk hahahha
I will be away to Bangkok for few days, so make sure you’re following my Instagram (@bobostephanie) for my updates from Bangkok ya!
