After a long week of activities and trips, we finally had the chance to relax before our next big adventure tomorrow. It felt amazing to be able to wake up passed 7am and wind down a bit.
At 2pm, Jessica and I met up with our friend Fei Fei. I previously met Fei Fei at the orientation meeting and later introduced her to Jessica. All three of us started off by getting some lemonade drinks and snacks. The Chinese buns are Jessica and I’s ultimate favorite snack, so we wanted Fei Fei to try it out too. She absolutely loved it! Other than that, the three of us decided to go to campus for a short walk and stop by the lake to feed some fishes. Some of the fishes were massive! We kept trying to feed them so we can see the big fishes come up. Then as we walked around the lake some more, we noticed a couple of black swans. Jessica and I were in awe since we never seen black swans before. It was definitely an amazing moment. Afterwards, we decided to walk back to the hotel and try out Fei Fei’s motorized scooter. I was so excited to ride it because it has been something that I have been wanting to do since we got here. Let me tell you....it was scarier than anticipated. However, after a few tries, Jessica and I got the hang of it like pros! It was really fun and I’m glad that is checked off my bucket list now!
When 5:30pm came around, Mkaela and I met up with our classmates to try out a new canteen. This one in particular consisted more of Americanized food, which was very exciting. All of us were eager to try it out and see if it tasted like the ones back at home. Irene wanted to share a meal with me, so we ended up ordering a combo meal that included a fried chicken sandwich, french fries, popcorn chicken, and chicken nuggets! It was very tasty and exceeded our expectations. Overall, it was a great day to be able to relax and have some fun with others. Stay tuned for tomorrow’s event!
