It’s been more than half of the ALP journey, and there were good and not-so-good times. However, nothing beats the joy of eating, and here for this week, I would like to share some of my eating experiences so far:

Bibimbap (Korean stone pot rice) at DuoLeLi (多乐里) located at 后街 – Lots of meaty goodness topped with a sunny side up egg and vegetables, a sure delight for korean food lovers.
Dumplings (馄饨) located behind the school hospital – Juicy bits of meat, century egg and prawn wrapped in dumpling skin of the perfect thickness, a satisfying meal for people who prefer a light meal.
Fish slice broth located at 后街 – this fondly reminds me of the fish slice beehoon soup so familiar to us Singaporeans, the broth is fragrant with fish and milk. A must-try!
Korean BBQ and Steamboat Buffet with the TF LEaRN group – lots of meat, meat and meat, ideal for meat lovers like myself!
Typical school canteen meal with rice and dishes – Filling, nutritious but not recommended on a daily basis.
Chicken drumstick noodles located at 后街 – tender chicken meat simmered in a soup base made up of mainly 梅菜, which I love.
Restaurant at 银泰城 – Pumpkin stewed with beef brisket, drunken chicken and tofu steamed in special homemade sauce. Definitely savoury and appetising when eaten with rice!
Korean mixed meat broth at 大长今, a restaurant across the road behind 后街 – Although not really filling for 3 of us that time, the ingredients were generous and the soup heavenly.
Another bibimbap at 大长今, except without meat (unlike the picture that was shown on the menu) – I personally prefer the other one because, well, meat.
Japanese restaurant located behind hostel – we ordered dishes such as chicken teriyaki don, katsudon etc. along with some sushi and handrolls. The waiting time was a little long, but the food was good!

It surprised even myself that I was able to find such a variety of food here in Hangzhou, China. Looking forward to more surprises and exposure here for the rest of the journey

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.
