Souvenirs From Guilin

Hi, everyone! I'm back! Yes, back from my wonderful holidays in Guilin, China.

Did you all miss me? Haha!

Guess what? I broke my own promise of not accessing the Internet during my trip there. Could not resist it! Tekkaus, you were right. My fingers got really itchy after some time, and with the computer available in the hostels where I stayed, it's a matter of time before I succumbed to the temptation!

To be honest, I did not really have much time to go online there. My schedule was full with activities and during those times when I had the opportunity to go online, I was either too tired and preferred to rest or someone else was using the computer!

It was really fun reading all your comments on my previous two posts. Thanks so much for commenting, everyone! Due to time constraints, I did not reply to any of your comments. Well, it's a good move just in case I decided to bluff all of you that I kept my promise and did not go online. Haha! But as you can see now, I have decided to be honest about it, so do I deserve an applause? ; )

I even thought of writing a new post on my blog there but quickly discovered that it was simply impossible to do so. And you know why? I was not able to access my blog. Maybe China had banned Blogspot? Luckily, I could still access my Gmail though.

Anyway, after reading through and counting all the comments from my last two posts, I am now announcing the winners of my "Top 3 Commenters Contest".

Congratulations to Tekkaus for leaving the most comments! As the 1st prize winner, you will have the chance to be the first person to choose any one of the souvenirs I brought back from Guilin (see photos below)

2nd prize goes to Lina. Choose the souvenir you want after Tekkaus chose his.

3rd prize goes to Ladyviral. You may choose your souvenir after Lina chose hers.

By the way, Ladyviral, you are the only one who attempted to guess the number of teaspoons of sugar in the list of products. Where did you get the answers from? I based my answers on CAP (Consumers Associations of Penang) booklet. Although your answers did not exactly match with CAP's (will reveal the answers in future posts), I think you deserve a prize for your efforts! Will let you know what is your prize for this guessing contest later : )

Here are the souvenirs I bought in China.
#1
art 1.2

An art drawn by a real life artist from ancient Daxu town near Guilin.

#2
art 2.2

Another art piece from the same artist. You may want to have it framed. (Note: Both art pieces are about A4 size)

#3
bag souvenir

I don't know know what to call this - a beautiful, small bag about 5" x 6.5" in size. I bought this from a lady selling these stuffs at Longji village in Longsheng County.

#4
happiness souvenir 2

This is an interesting souvenir that you can hang with the bell ringing when the wind blows. Not sure what the mandarin words say (I'm sure you already know my mandarin sucks!) but I think blogger Jam told me it means "happiness everyday". Want to be blessed with happiness every single day? Get this one! : )

#5
cushion cover front 2

This is a beautiful cushion cover I bought from Longji village. Unfortunately, none of you could choose this as your prize, because my mom liked it so much she had already taken it! Sorry!! : )

#6
bird necklace

A necklace with a bird motif bought from Longji village.

#7
skull necklace

Or if you are more daring, (or devilish), you may want to choose this skull necklace!

#8
letter bills holder 2

This beautifully woven bills/letter holder is about 7" wide and 29" long. With this hanging on the wall, you will never again misplace your important bills and letters!

#9
mini mahjong 2

Do you play mahjong? You might want to consider this mini mahjong tiles. It comes in a box set about 7" x 4.5" in size with a dice and extra two tiles thrown in (see below)

mini mahjong set 2

This mahjong set was bought from a night market at a pedestrian street along Zhongshan Zhong Road.

#10
tissue box cover 1.2

Tissue box cover with dark background and chinese designs.

tissue box cover 2.2

The bottom part of the tissue box cover.

infinity jade

The tissue box cover also comes along with these two decorative objects.

#11
zipper bag 1.2

A small 8" x 4" bag with zipper.

#12
zipper bag 2

Another 8" x 4" zipper bag with a different design. Both bought from Longji village.

#13
3 butterflies

Three "butterflies" souvenirs I bought by the busy road side in Guilin.

So Tekkaus, Lina and Ladyviral, take your time to choose your prize and let me know which one you chose by sending me an email with your address. Thank you!

    August 10, 2009 at 8:13 PM
  16. Tekkaus said...

    August 10, 2009 at 8:17 PM
  20. lina said...

    August 10, 2009 at 8:36 PM
  21. Mei Teng said...

    I am eyeing one of those pretty butterflies :P

    August 10, 2009 at 9:59 PM
  22. foongpc said...

    mei teng, I'm afraid not! But since you're such a dedicated first commenter on my blog, OK, I will pass you one of those butterflies you were eyeing. Provided, of course Lina and Ladyviral had not chosen them! Which colour do you prefer? : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:25 PM
  23. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, I can't believe I won the Blog Idol! This is such fantastic news for me! Btw, I have placed the Blog Idol Trophy on my blog. Thanks so much for those who voted and thanks to you, bluedreamer for organizing this interesting competition and for the EC credits! : )

    Oh, I am not good at mahjong. I'm still very new to it and so people who are well versed with the game will find it very impatient to play with me. Haha! You know how to play too? : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:29 PM
  24. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, yes I'm back! Thanks for welcoming me back : )

    Also thanks regarding the Blog Idol competition - didn't expect to win it!

    Glad you find the gifts thoughtful! My next post will be coming up soon : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:32 PM
  25. foongpc said...

    lina, you know how to play mahjong too? I'm not good at it - very slow at it and you might just scream at me! LOL!

    Thanks for welcoming me back, Lina. Oh, btw, pls choose your prize and leave a comment here so that ladyviral will know which prizes are already taken.

    Tekkaus has chosen the mahjong set which is an excellent choice btw. So what's yours? Remember to email me your address so I can send the prize to you : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:35 PM
  26. foongpc said...

    TH, yes make Guilin your next holiday trip! You will love the beautiful landscapes there! It's awesome : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:37 PM
  27. foongpc said...

    jam, oh, so it's called a sling bag? OK, thanks for informing! Actually, I can do with more rests! But yes, back to blogging business as usual. Can't resist it after not being able to blog for 10 days! Haha!

    Oh, btw, thanks for your wonderful research done and fantastic itinerary for this China trip! You are the best tour guide really! Also thanks for helping out with all the conversations done in Mandarin! I don't know how to survive if left alone in China! LOL!

    August 10, 2009 at 11:42 PM
  28. Merryn said...

    Mini mahjong.. mini mahjong!

    August 10, 2009 at 11:45 PM
  29. foongpc said...

    SK, haha! Shopping I did! Riding on a four wheel bicycle? No! But did I cycle on a 2 wheel bicycle? I'll let you in on that in my future post! Haha!

    Yes, the mahjong set is nice, isn't it? Too bad it's already taken up by the 1st prize winner of my contest!

    Not everything is blocked in China. Did they ban Facebook too? Well, I hope Malaysia does not follow their style : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:46 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    annant, thanks! My next post on my China trip coming right up! : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:47 PM
  31. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, you really waited and waited? Well, looks like all
    your waiting is worth it! Haha!

    Anyway, thanks for welcoming me back! : )

    Yeah, my fingers just got itchier and itchier! Haha! Not sure if China banned Blogspot, but I tried accessing a few blogs that are using Blogspot and could not access any of them!

    The souvenirs were not really a lot lah. So did not add too much extra weight to my luggage. LOL!

    The mini mahjong is a great choice, tekkaus! Will send it to you soon! You "pong" I "kong"! Haha!

    No H1N1 virus but have SCTO virus. SCTO stands for Sad China Trip is Over! Haha!

    August 10, 2009 at 11:55 PM
  32. foongpc said...

    lina, no need to sanitize cos by the time the prizes reach you, a week would have passed. Any virus on the prizes would not have survived : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:58 PM
  33. foongpc said...

    merryn, you are keen on the mini mahjong? Too bad lah, you are not the winner. First prize winner Tekkaus has chosen it as his prize! : )

    August 10, 2009 at 11:59 PM

    August 11, 2009 at 6:53 AM
  35. Ayie said...

    i love the paintings...is it ok if I copy one of those? I thought of painting one for our unit =) Or maybe I'll combine both paintings to make it different =)

    August 11, 2009 at 6:55 AM
  36. khengsiong said...

    Welcome back.
    So many souvenirs... I guess you must be new to independent travel, and still haven't understand the principle of traveling light.

    Yes, China bans Blogspot. You need to use proxy in order to access to this domain.

    August 11, 2009 at 8:20 AM
  37. lina said...

    I'm torn between the art piece and the bags.... decisions decisions. :D

    I think I'll go with the zipper bag #12.

    I'll e-mail you my address later (or better still, come here at Gardens lah... got excuse to meet up!)

  44. A Common Singaporean said...

    Hi Foong, it's been awhile. I see u r holidaying a again! You are really quite a traveler are you!

    I thought the Chinese paintings are rather cool, even tho I had never been a fan of chinese painting art.

    August 11, 2009 at 11:04 AM
  45. foongpc said...

    ayie, you should have spammed me with comments and win some of the souvenirs!

    Sure, you can copy those paintings if you want cos I don't hold the copyright to them. Hehe. Maybe combine them both so it's more interesting. You mean, you can draw that well? Wow! : )

    August 11, 2009 at 12:51 PM
  46. foongpc said...

    khengsiong, I usually travel light, but not for this trip. Haha! Most of the time, I don't even need to check in luggage at the airport - such a hassle. I just carry hand luggage - see how light I travel! But this time, it's a 10 days trip, must check in!

    Also need to take hand sanitizer which is not allowed in hand luggage, so have to check that in as well!

    Why did China ban Blogspot? Looks like my blog can never have readers from China : (

    August 11, 2009 at 12:54 PM
  47. jam said...

    No worries, Foong! I plan this Guilin trip for myself too!

    August 11, 2009 at 12:55 PM
  48. foongpc said...

    lina, OK, zipper bag it is then. Good choice. I hope you'll like it. Sure, can meet up at The Gardens. No need to mail to you then : )

  52. foongpc said...

    ladyviral, remember curiousity kills the cat! So don't get too curious! Haha! But in this case, it's a good thing. Will let you know what prize to give you later.

    The butterflies are not pins, but you can tie them to something and use as accessories or decorative item. You want them? Pls email me your address. Thanks! : )

    August 11, 2009 at 1:01 PM
  53. foongpc said...

    The most outstanding feature of Breitling
    is that it is all Breitling since it is completely in-house manufactured. That is to say, it comes with all the quintessential watchmaking machinery of the brand and there is no need to worry about its quality.
    The wristwatch comes with a unique movement which consists of a column wheel and a distinguish power reserve that can assure the routine rate of the movement. In addition, the auto-centering of the reset hammers and the index regulating system enable people to adjust the timing of the timepiece. Like other exceptional watchmakers such as IWC, B01 utilizes a column wheel. Breitling Aeromarine
    also adds a great number of inventive characteristics that enhance its practical utility.
    Breitling Windrider
    has its own production line. Every watch has to go through exceptional stringent tests before they are launched into the market. It is perfectly responsible delivering Bentley 6.75
    's well known reliability to a myriad of audience.
