First of Oct X It’s His Birthday: Tickets, Yay!!!

since we came back from Foshan

early last month

we have been talking about

another trip to Mainland China real soon

*

it’s that addictive

but we dilly dally for a couple of weeks

and in between I was away twice

for a couple of days

*

until

these two ads appeared

continuously interchangeably relentlessly

on my newsfeed everyday or

should i say almost everytime

whenever I access my Facebook

*

you can see how

the likes have grown

on 25 September (Mon)

on October 1 (Sun)

and on Sept 26 (Tues)

i have actually sat down with

my dad and a monthly calendar

to properly suggest and discuss

over 3 feasible date options

in terms of their respective

price/length/other pros/cons

*

the usual considerations include

it’s better to fly on weekend

but price is usually higher

and flights on Tues/Thurs

are usually the cheapest

*

in case you wonder why

*

but later

the Satur-dates (2 – 9 Dec)

were crossed out as

the price went up further

*

so we were left with

(5 – 12 Dec) Tues -Tues

(5 – 14 Dec) Tues – Thurs

the latter was slightly cheaper

and they made no difference

in terms of price after

another day of dilly dally

*

so I ended up

booking 5 – 14 Dec

wow… over the span of

two workweeks

*

but i guess it’s fine as

i travel with a data SIM anyway

and i am actually avoiding the peak

during 2nd half of December

*

this is the nett price with add-ons

not too bad right

i mean it’s during year-end school holiday

not the super peak but still

AirAsia Shantou SWA

*

and guess what

this is going to be

my third time in Shantou

and my second in Xiamen

*

10 day trip is ideal for me to

spend a night at Chaozhou

and plan some day trips

near Xiamen

*

e.g.

going back to Quanzhou

Gulangyu Island is a must!!

and a temple in Zhangzhou (Cijigong)

that we accidentally gave a miss

but then i realized that

the location’s somehow near Xiamen

so i was pretty sure i shall visit soon

*

next round of Visa application

damn, i should have applied for

double entries during the previous one

since two trips are barely 3 months apart

what a waste, right

arrrrgggghhhhhhh

*

so i am going to have

double entries this time round

to be combined with

our next trip to Chongqing in March

*

Happy Birthday, China!!!

before it turns 12 AM

*

can’t wait to land on the

sunny breezy GLY island again

*

OMG exactly four years ago

wearing the same outfit

yes i will!!!
