Spicy Opera

We walked to the Wenshu Monastery on Sunday, October 26, 2008 from Sim’s. It was a nice area to walk around in.  We saw some great relics, a garden and halls. There was some great big statues inside.  We went to find the teahouse.  It’s bottomless tea.  There are guys who walk around and refill […]


Panda Garden

Our train arrived at 2:30 pm in Chengdu on October 24, 2008.  It was thirty minutes early.  We were going to get picked up from somebody from the hostel.  We got a taxicab to the hostel instead of waiting for the ride.  We checked in at Sim’s Cozy Garden Hostel.  This hostel is really big.  […]


A Monkey good time!

We had some lunch at the 7th Heaven Cafe on October 22, 2008.  We then walked around town.  Ivan was looking for a place called Monkey Jane’s.  It’s a rooftop bar.  We finally found it.  It has a sign but it’s a little hard to see.  We decided to chill here for a little while.  […]


Mud Bath, Cooking and a Light Show

We went to 7th Heaven cafe for breakfast on October 19, 2008.  Ivan and Jennifer had omelets.  I had a banana pancake.  We were going to rent a moped for the day.  The place to rent mopeds and bicycles was right next to the cafe.  We ate outside.  Ivan and Jennifer kept getting bugged by […]


Monkey traveling upside-down near a cave

Ivan, Jennifer and I went to the Reed Flute Cave in Guilin on October 17, 2008.  Right when you walk into the area, you get pestered with people trying to sell you books, postcards or a bamboo ride.  Ivan said later to one lady.  For some reason they kept bugging Ivan and not Jennifer.  Most […]


More Macau, Train Ride and Guilin

I forgot to mention that I put a video of Ivan sawing wood at the Happy Valley Racecourse.  Check it out on the post called Buddha drinking tea while on a horse or on the video page. We wanted to see more of Macau.  We had some sandwiches right by the hostel on October 14, […]


Cute dogs, Crepes and Macau

Ivan, Jennifer and I met up with two local couchsurfer girls on Sunday, October 12, 2008.  They both were named Winnie.  One of the Winnie girls thought we should go to a wanton noodle shop that was near by.  So, we went inside to order.  Ivan had the fish ball soup.  Jennifer got the shrimp […]


Ocean club

On the 10th of October we all went to Ocean Park. It was a short bus ride away from the center of town, in Aberdeen. I had heard lots about it, as its mentioned in all my monkey Hong Kong guides. Apparently they have a few rides there that even little monkeys like me can […]


Buddha drinking tea while on a horse

Ivan, Jennifer and I went to Lantau Island on October 7, 2008.  Yes, another day out.  I am not used to going out so much.  We took the Ngong Ping 360 railway cars up to the top.  It takes 25 minutes to get to the top.  There’s a pole in the middle of the railway […]


Banana rain

We all woke up on October 4, 2008. It was time to check out of the Marriott Courtyard. I watched while they both packed everything up in the room. I packed up my monkey bag too, and made sure that I didn’t leave any bananas behind. Ivan, Jennifer and I went to a couchsurfer’s house […]
