I’m having Chinese Buffet Breakfast at Kanas Best Hotel Restaurant now :
Back to our Hotel Room after Breakfast – drinking more Wahaha Mineral Water cos remember I’ve got slight sorethroat last night?? Well, it’s much better today cos I drank some cool chilled Wushu Beer last night before sleeping – but just to be safe, am drinking more water right now……….hmmm I really like the Red Chinese Girl can-opener – so cute
We’re now checking out of Kanas Best Hotel - btw, I’ve never really known the English name of this Hotel – tried asking at the reception for Hotel pamphlets (a habit of mine whenever I travel!!) last night after dinner, but there isn’t any, & the people whom I spoke to have no idea at all, worse still, I don even remember its chinese name!!
But it doesnt matter, cos to me it should be, & it is, the best Hotel here in Kanas cos of its so beautiful settings & surroundings & most comfortable good heated Rooms & beds - so named “Kanas Best Hotel” by myself heheheeee
Well, below’s a pic of our Tour Coach Driver (whom we call “Shifu” meaning “Master Driver” in Chinese) with my brother-in-law Ah Hia.
YESSSSSSSSS Shifu is NOT afraid of the extreme cold at all, especially out here in Kanas since yesterday, & during our trips to Tianshi Tianshan (or Heavenly Lake & Heavenly Mountain) - 2 places which are extremely chilling!!
No matter how cold the weather is, Shifu’s always just wearing a normal thin short sleeved shirt & pants – compared to Ah Hia who’s wearing layers of clothes – thermal wear, shirt, jacket & scarf!!!
And Shifu has always been the only one (with no assistant driver!!) who’s been driving us along the long wide stretched Silk Road of China – except when we were travelling in the Deluxe Oriental Express Train, & Kanas Public Bus.
Ahahahaaa what a STRONG Shifu – KUDOS to you Shifu!!!
Anyway, we soon left Kanas & along the LONG ride through the Mountains, nature called making me sosooo “urgent” – YES I had to pee which I’d waited almost 2 hrs into the journey from Kanas Best Hotel (errhhhhhhhhhh due to too much Mineral Water earlier of course!!!)!!!
There wasn’t a single Toilet on sight so I got Shifu to stop by a Mountainous roadside to let me “Shi Shi” – ahhahhahah it was raining quite heavily when our lady Tour guide Siao Chen & I got off our Coach……………walked to the very nearby WET MUDDY Hillside & quickly found a spot -placed 2 umbrellas on the grounds (behind & covering me) while I released myself………………under the rain ahhahaahaaa so funny!!
What a true Natural Toilet Break indeed!!! Well, it sounds really embarrassing now that I’m mentioning it here – but then I didnt feel any embarrassment out there at all cos it’s very common that people (locals as well as Tourists) do that in China – & especially here along the Silk Road of China where Toilets are so scarce!! In fact sometimes even if there’s a Toilet available – tourists (like a few of my lady Tour mates!!) would rather pee outside in the open area cos the Toilets are simply too horrible!!! YES it’s true!!!
Haaaaaaa I’ve always reminded myself not to drink too much especially just before travelling on the roads – but guess I forgot cos I just wana get rid of my slightest sorethroat -which I did ahahahaa thanks to Ah Hia’s cool Beer & the Mineral Water
And well, 1st thing I did upon our arrival at Rainbow Beach (located at Burqin), I went straight to the Toilet again – this time a very clean huge proper sheltered Toilet Must be the much Mineral Water again which I drank this morning - Ohhh not forgetting that bowl of plain porridge Soup which I ate at Breakast too!!
Hey there’re Horses out here too Heheheh NOPE they’re actually just Horse Dummies – so real looking huh?!?!
It’s very very cold out here by the very lovely though drizzling wet Rainbow Beach so we’re all making a quick move back towards our Tour Coach :
YES that’s what many Tourists bring along in their possessions during travelling in the extreme Coldness out here – a small bottle of Liquor to keep them real warm & feeling cosy – but I can’t drink (taking only a tiny little sip so persuaded by Auntie Ah Kheng!!!), unless I wana not sightsee but knock myself out sleeping in the Coach here along the Silk Road of China - hahahah you guess it right I’d be drunk if I sip just little bit more heeheheheee!!!!!
