The Great Eastern China Trip

Yeah, wondering why I was not posting anything material for the past eight days? Well, I was away on a long holiday to Eastern China with my family. The trip started from 25 May and I just came back late last night (1 June) and here I am again.

The journey was a long and enjoyable one. I took more than 1,000 pictures with my camera can eagerly waiting to post it up to share it. The summary of the holiday is as follows:

Day 1 - 25 May 2005 Kuala Lumpur to Shanghai

The Pearl Tower on a raining foggy night

At the Shanghai Bund

The famous 88 meters Linshan giant Buddha (in the background) a smaller version is in the foreground.

I would be opening a new blog to record down the day to day experience of my trip in China. The blog will help me to preserve my memories of the trip and also some of the photos that I have taken along the journey.
