青岛葡萄收成季节

七月正巧是葡萄收成的时候,我也碰巧被安排到了青岛两晚的航班还有一组非常好玩又友善的机组人员,简直太开心了。那次的路程,机长是个即将在十一月退休的机长,他就因如此,每到一个城市都一定会约每各机组人员一同出外,吃个饭或去郊游,然后拍很多照片留着做纪念。

抵达青岛的第二天,我们大清早就被带到了青岛的葡萄种植园,到处能看到各家种植的不同品种的葡萄。我们到处逛逛可天空便开始下起细细的雨因此就匆匆地找家葡萄园开始我们的葡萄自助大餐。我们选定的那家葡萄园并未有很多葡萄品种能让我们品尝,而只有两种-巨峰和玫瑰红。

后来因为雨越下越大,我们只好坐着等到雨停,而为了打发时间变开始和葡萄园的阿姨聊起天,越聊越起劲时,阿姨便说副机长人很帅,问他有女友吗,机长便搞笑地撒谎说,“我的儿子很帅是吧,多亏我的基因,他现在是单身嘞!你有美女介绍给他吗?”

你们猜阿姨结果说了什么?

阿姨说,“哈哈你们父子真不像,但小帅哥,我的确有美女介绍给你。她还二十来岁,刚毕业还是个公司的会计。她就是我的女儿,她现在还在家里今天周末不用上班,我打个电话叫她过来葡萄园,待会你们可以交个朋友。” 一说完阿姨便拿起了手机拨打电话。

我们都傻了。。。

结果阿姨的女儿真的来了!我们就这样互相的认识了。一个下午就这样过去了。。。

我的葡萄收成体验日就到此结束 🙂

Where I stayed in: Shenzhen, China

After my first night stay in Hong Kong to catch up some rest from the long tiring budget flight from Singapore, I’m finally in Shenzhen! For Shenzhen, I have booked a hotel near the metro station because it would be more convenient for me to travel via metro than to take their taxi. Since I was going to be mainly shopping in the area of Dongmen, I decided to book a hotel in that area so that I could have easy access to the hotel to unload my shopping bags and then continue on. (I’m such a shopaholic!) Anyway, the hotel that I booked was called:

ZTL Hotel Shenzhen (Previously Days Inn Shenzhen)

Address: 57 Yongxin Street, Jiefang Road, Luohu District, Dongmen, Shenzhen, China

Nearest MTR: Lao Jie Station (Exit D)

My Rate: $65.25 incl. of taxes and gst (Wed)

ZTL Hotel wasn’t the cheapest hotel around in Shenzhen nor in the Dongmen area. There were actually plenty of hotels in Shenzhen with prices less than $100 a night for you to choose from. However, one of the difficulties of booking hotels in Shenzhen is that the Google Maps are not updated and therefore it makes it difficult to actually check where your hotels are located and if they are near any metro stations. (I don’t know why Shenzhen map is not updated…)

Anyway, the hotel location is excellent, once you step out of the station exit, you could easily spot the huge sign which is facing the road, away from the Dongmen Shopping area. The ground floor of the hotel is a huge row of shops and nearby is just H&M flagship store! There is a GongCha store right opposite the hotel with KFC and Macdonalds nearby as well.

As for the service, the front desk staff was bad and rude. When I wanted to check in to the hotel, they claimed that they did not block any room for me because they did not receive any booking information, until later when one of the staff admitted that she did receive but misunderstood the word “confirmation” as “cancellation”. (OMG SERIOUSLY?!) Then they randomly gave me a low floor room on the 3rd floor when I requested for a high floor. I was totally pissed. (If I were to be staying in that hotel for a few nights, I’ll probably ask for a room change but since it was a night, I decided to forgo about it. Damn…)

The superior room was definitely bigger than the size of a standard room in Hong Kong and it felt really awesome. The bed was a queen and it was super soft and comfortable. I LOVE THE BED! However, the aircon was super cold and no matter how much I tried to adjust the temperature, it just doesn’t seemed to work beside turning off the aircon completely, which made me gasping for air because of the stuffiness. The mini fridge in the room was totally spoilt as well and it was super smelly when I open it, NEARLY PUKED, I swear!

Overall, I guess the hotel is good for a one night stay if you are planning to do some one day crazy shopping  in Dongmen area, else there are plenty of good hotels in Shenzhen with similar pricing for you to choose from and better service and facilities available.
