China Chengdu Beef Tianfu Square

7 April 2013

Quiet night out

I didnt get up to much as I thought I would be too tired from todays long hike. None the less I managed to wander around for 3.5 hours anyway.
Starting in the city, headed west, ended up at a big community fun night out the front of a bright Parkson mall area. Activities included dancing of course, karaoke outdoors, modern pogo boot things (see photo), riding around on electric bikes decorated like lambs, rollerblading, badmington, riding on segways without handles (just a wheel you stand either side of), some sort of ten pin bowling game, mahjong, bullshit story telling (groups of old men in heated debate), book trading, illegal dvd selling, skipping rope, water pistol fights, cooking various things on portable gas, paper aeroplane competitions, and about 20 pop up stalls selling stuff, normally aided by mini tv's or hi fi systems.

Dinner came from Master Kongs, a chain store popular in the east but I only know of one outlet here in Chengdu. It was pretty good, but I remember it being better in Beijing.
The beef was great, but the noodles were different and there was just too many of them.

I also ordered the cucumber, which came as I was finishing what I intended to eat of my noodles. A different variation again, this one has been in the fridge for a while to absorb some of the flavours of ginger and garlic. A bit like you would do with bruschetta topping before putting it on bread.
Cucumbers are my favourite thing.

Me again, this time on one of the streets leading to the main shopping street. People really looked at me weirdly this time. The guy next to me was going through rubbish bins looking for cans.
I am selling Microsoft Surface.

Picture 400! The pogo boot things I mentioned above. I think these are banned in Australia, too many kids pogo'd onto their faces. Hopefully tomorrow I can find night lawn darts too.
