Mt. WuYi (武夷山), China (中国) : Stage Show of DaHongPao (印象大红袍山水实景演出)

China Part 3 - Mt. WuYi (武夷山), Northern FuJian (福建)

Our trip to FuJian was inclusive of a stage show by one of the world most recognised producer, Zhang Yi Mou 张艺谋.

In fact, what I can only say is THE SHOW WAS AMAZING with 360 degree of outdoor stage show. Blending in with the background of the real mountain of WuYi and allowing us to "teleport" ourselves to Song Dynasty 宋朝.


- The Main Entrance - 

We enjoyed the cold weather while walking from the restaurant nearby after we had our dinner.

- Backdrop -

One of the backdrop at the outdoor stage.

Maybe some of you might wonder what is DaHongPao 大红袍, it was name of the precious tea, well known from Mt. WuYi. Back then and even until now, Tea plays a huge role in China people lifestyle. DaHongPao also been classified under the "The World Intangible Cultural Heritage" (中国乌龙茶申报世界“非物质文化遗产). 

Back to the show, the show brought us way back to Song Dynasty, the calm lifestyle of that friendly village and forgetting the stressful lifestyle of ours. Lovely music, amazing show with hundreds of presenter. *Clap hand*

Here are some of the photos that I have secretly took. 
(*Cough Cough* secretly)



- The Outdoor Show -

It was freezing while we were watching the show, shivered so much even though we worn gloves and thick attires. Gosh! But, it was a great experience and all of us should watch such stage show if we happen to visit China.


- The Ticket -

Their rubbish, my treasure. I still keep them. :)

And now, my wish list before my China trip again on this month!! ZR1500 by Casio!!! I want to have a good night photoshoot!!!

It's all about HOMEMADE! By The Organic Beancurd Shop (豆花小铺) @ Damai, #KKEats

So, The Organic Beancurd Shop might be a little bit too long to remember.

In fact, they got a hastag to remember - #TOBSKK!


- Cold Beancurd aka Taufa -

It's Taufa, not Tau Fu Fa, it's more health conscious and safe to be consumed.

#TOBS started their business few months ago and people love how the texture tasted like, just like others, I love the smooth texture which melt on the minute it's inside my mouth.

Mr. Tan had so much passion experimenting the best taste to suit customers taste buds.


- #TOBSKK -

Spot them at Damai or maybe the dessert at some of the local coffee shops in K.K.!

:) Refreshing Tau Fa on a hot day? Their beancurd would be one of the best choice.

Mt. WuYi (武夷山), China (中国) : Our Stay at Yeo Hwa Resort (武夷山悦华酒店)!

China Part 2 - Mt. WuYi (武夷山), Northern FuJian (福建)

Prepared ourselves for breakfast before we were going for a morning "walk" at the sightseeing area of Mt. WuYi.

Waking up ourselves at that cold weather  really pampered us so much. I love the weather and love the boots that I could wear!! I'm in love with boots and that outfits that I could wear while traveling at cold places. :) It's like the only time I can be fashionable while wearing thick clothes!


- Wu Yi Mountain -

It was incredible feelings that I can see the majestic mountain with such a close view. The clouds surrounded the mountain was like "heaven", fairy tales.

Okay, back to the main points of this entry! I wanted to share my review on our stay at Yeo Hwa Resort, the Five Star Hotel we were staying during our trip! It was one of the best hotel I have stayed during this trip!

   

- Breakfast - 

The venue was perfect! Clean and neat. My dad certainly enjoy his meal, (Haha)

The buffet breakfast was amazing with international theme and a combination of their local delicacies as well. Well trained chef there. :) Just to remind you, COFFEE was BAD. -_- A lot to improve it.

 

 - Part of What I Had -

Sweet potatoes is a must! So sweet and healthy!


- ALL YOU CAN EAT -


- The Garden -

It's outside of the buffet area, it would be so cold if we happens to sit outside for breakfast!

 

- Temperature - 

A corner to inform us about the temperature of WuYi Mountain. Must get prepared with jacket or glove to keep ourselves warm. :)


 - Cafe -

Guests who are hungry at night, can go to this cafe located at Yeo Hwa Resort Lobby for a slice of cake and hot beverage. The cakes looks delicious!

Did you spot Haagen Daz ICE CREAM!!??


- Indoor Garden -

We saw something fishy outside when we passes by the night before, lights were switch off and gosh, the place was so beautiful and calm when we saw it during the day!

We did have a seat and rest and even take a snap of two at the resort indoor garden! How lovely it was!


- Indoor Garden -

There's a bird in the bird cage behind me! Chinese have a hobby of keeping birds during the olden days and they still keeping them now. 


 - Yeo Hwa Resort (武夷山悦华酒店) -

Remember I story about the night walk during the midnight we arrived the resort? 

Luckily I took a snap of the resort main entrance/ building. They told us that we were staying at the best resort of WuYi Mountain area.

 

- Part of Our Room -

I love the soft bed of our room. :)

The best experience are meant to be shared and luckily a compilation of last minute decision of writing this entry was successful!

 Till then!
