Having decided to have a hearty breakfast and skip lunch on Day 2, we took our breakfast at the hotel’s 3rd floor which is also known for its Dimsum. We were booked at Guangzhou Hotel. I was able to get a good rate at Agoda even on a last minute booking. We were booked in 2 rooms.
The dimsum selection at the 3rd floor is varied and each and every dish that came out was a delight in the palette.
ON THE TABLE
After breakfast, we took the metro and traveled to Pazhou complex. The 2nd fair, Sign China, was located across DPES. When we got out of the metro, we had to walk a kilometer or 2 to be able to get to the other side.
We were off to a full day of checking out what’s new in the industry. We had to endure 5 hours of gasping for air as the smell from the CNC routers and Laser Engravers were horrible. It was like being high on rugby for 5 hours!
We managed to finish the Sign China halls on the 1st floor only. Our feet couldn’t take an hour more so we decided to head back to the hotel at around 4PM.
After an hour or so, we decided to head back to Beijing Lu for dinner. There was a new street we saw that we haven’t explored yet so we decided to walk around that area. Good thing as the place was a hang out spot for the yuppies. It was one restaurant after the other that we found was interesting.
We decided to try Rukee Hainanese Chicken House. The place was rather small but had a 2nd floor. We were quickly seated –
Our total bill was at RMB87.00. The half chicken order was RMB48.00.
Sticky Rice w/ Mango
The mango was enveloped with this jelly film which was made from dragon fruit. The rice is not your typical white sticky rice but tasted more like beans but they were red rice cooked differently.
After a satisfied stomach, we walked back to the hotel for a much needed rest.
