Initially, for the weekend, I wanted to go to 郭庄, a tourist place known for its scenic areas (or so I have learnt from online sources). However, after talking with the taxi driver on the way out from our school gate, he advised us that there is nothing much there and recommended us this place called 农夫乐园, supposedly a theme park that has scenic areas (which we have never heard of). Feeling adventurous, we decided to take the risk and went ahead with the driver’s suggestion.

Before setting off, we had lunch near the main entrance of the school at 过桥米线, which is a famous local delicacy that features a boiling hot bowl of soup, a platter of raw dishes and of course, a bowl of rice noodles, all for the consumer to put into the soup.

The theme park’s original ticket price is 120RMB per pax, but fortunately, with the student card, we were able to get it at half price. Onward we go!

It was a surprisingly fun day at an unexpected place. If not for the taxi driver’s recommendation, this place would have remained unexplored. Highly recommended for adventurous explorers!

It is in my nature to learn, to grow, to help others, to teach, to explore, and to be fascinated with the unknown. With a keen interest in music, I play the tuba in the symphonic band and also the piano. Music is magical, and it never fails to amaze me how effectively it can connect people regardless of race, language, ethnicity and geographical proximity. Similarly, with my new-found passion in computing and programming, I aspire to create programs that does the same and to solve their problems, but in a slightly different, more technical approach.
