Now that the projects were over, it’s time to let loose and have FUNNNNN! We took a trip to Shanghai to enjoy Happy Valley (欢乐谷) a theme park and man was that exciting! We also took the chance to spend more time with each other, between all the themes, since most of us had spent the past few weeks working around the same people, getting a chance to chit-chat with some of our other friends was really enjoyable. Sharing stories, good and bad, about the entire course! We all, went to sing K, dance at a bar, and even just spend the whole day in the room playing party games with one another, taking a good recharge after all the projects and before we fly back. I even got the chance to visit a trampoline park for the first time! Taking the much needed break before going back to Singapore.
On Saturday, most of us had already begun to check out. Taking that short walk to board the bus, I really reminisced about the memories I’ve made throughout the trip. Learning about the culture, about the people and about being a student at ZJU was truly a rewarding experience, but being able to make new friends, and form a community with each other, that was the real takeaway from the course. I felt like I’ve really grown as a person throughout my time in Hang Zhou, being a more independent individual and all, and I hope that when I get home to Singapore, even if I may forget some of the things that I’ve learnt there, I will continue to cherish the moments we all shared together.
