I need sleep . OMG after a 3 hour delayed, we are getting shuttled to the plane via a bus. Which is causing more of a delay. Life is… Good. Ish.

Nearly left Shanghai in TEARS because I forgot to put 15 bottles of nail polish in my check in luggage and was told to throw them ALL out because nail polishes are explosives and aren’t allowed on the plane. WHAT A WASTE. China Mail also refused to mail nail polish. So I painted my nails at the airport. #ticketguyliedtome #leftshanghaiwithmynailpolish #nailpolishaddict #stillinchina

So long version of the story. We checked in our luggage and got told to open up our luggage to check. They wanted to see the nail polish in my check in.  I brought 19 in total, 4 for my own use and 15 as gifts. So the guy checking asked if I had nail polish and I said yes. But I could only find the 4. And he told me to stop rummaging and close up my luggage, so I did. I started to panic because I didn’t know if the bag of 15 was in my check in or carry on.  When I checked my carry on, there it was. All fucking 15 bottles. Dad asked the ticket guy about if I could bring it as carry on - he said absolutely not and that the other day, a lady had to throw out a couple bottles. Nail polishes aren’t allowed on the plane because they are explosives. So he suggested to try and mail it. BUT CHiNA MAIL DOESNT MAIL NAIL POLISH. The fuck. So I got all like mad and angry and sad because they were suppose to be gifts and yeah I was not impressed. Throw out 15 bottles of perfectly good nail polish. YOU ARE FUCKING KIDDING ME. I had nail polish remover so I redid my toe nails and also painted my nails. Put those nail polishes to some use… Well three of them anyways. I decided I would split them between my bag, my carry on luggage and my dads carry on and just try to get through the carry on checking people. Thank God I tried because the lady scanning my carry on didn’t seem to care about my nail polish. 

And thank goodness we had to take our check in luggage from baggage claim at hainan before our flight to Singapore because I don’t know if my dad and I would be able to bring 15 explosive nailpolish on the plane to Singapore . So now it’s almost all in my check in luggage except for two :)

Flight from Beijing to haikou. Most annoying flight of my life. 45 coworkers on the same plane going on vacation. They were so fucking loud! Didn’t get any sleep on that three hour flight. So annoyed. 

Now were sitting in haikou Melian airport waiting for our flight to Singapore … Stillllll no twitter google gmail or Facebook. I honestly miss twitter so much LOL. I feel so disconnected to the world.  Anyways my dad is sleeping across from me , snoring away in the airport LOL. I’m not gonna wake him up. We have a long day ahead of us tomorrow. And a police officer just came by and yelled at him and a couple other people for laying across the benches horizontally .

—— 

Impressed with their washrooms, there’s disinfectant for the toilet seats! But not impressed that we had to walk through a sketchy area and in the dark to get from domestic flight building to international fligh building. And they took away my bug spray because it’s explosive… Even though it’s in my check in .. Well… You know it’s passed three inspections and has never been taken away…

The struggles of not having free WiFi LOL.

Also, turns out I wasn’t the only one the tour guide was addressing regarding staining towels with hair dye.  A lady had to pay for towels that she stained this morning.

Never stop learning. Today was an early start to the day, 4am was morning call. We went to shanghai airport to fly to Nanjing. Once we got there, we went straight for lunch at 11 even though we had a meal before the flight and during the flight. Turns out, we had to wait an hour for the other group from shanghai to join us. Our group of 15 would become a group of 48. While we were waiting, my dad and I went with another family to get a SIM card. We walked about fifteen minutes outside where we nearly got killed by traffic. It was soooooo humid! Anyways, No dice. We need a china ID. LOL fail right? So no phone in china for us.

Had lunch and went to visit some sightseeing places I can’t remember. But it was scenic. Hella gorgeous! If I were to come back to china, I’d definitely go back to Nanjing. Just gorgeous. Oh went to the grave and thinking place of the father of china, and Confucius temple. And the history is just sooo amazing.

I also indirectly got in trouble by the tour guide for staining the sheets and towels in Beijing bluey black for my hair I dyed like a week ago. LOL my bad. It’s not my fault I went to sleep with my hair wet, there was no hair dryer!! As for towels…. My shirt is now a make shift towel LOL. — yes I do dye my hair black. I like it evenly black. If I don’t dye my hair, all the ombré areas will be various shades of brown.

Oh shit, my bad.

I stained the hotel sheets and towels black from the remnants of my hair dye, and I definitely got in trouble for it. LOL my bad. I am now using one of my tshirts as a towel for my hair.

Rickshaw in old shanghai and the old lodging, traditional medicine pharmacy, tiananmen square, forbidden city, crazy fucking rainstorm, feng shui place, Peking duck for dinner, and Kung fu show.

I got my “fortune” told at the fengshui place LOL. Sooooooooo awkward. Basically told me I’m having a bad year. All you monkey readers out there, our year is rated 2/5 LOL. And it was also mini match making, told me which years I am good with. Lol….

And I also have a thing for history.

This was the random place a stranger brought my dad and I to go eat at. It was 11pm and the restaurants in the hotel were closed and room service was too expensive for us.

I did some studying today and after went to walmart and bought $70 worth of appliance charging products, this portable charge pack included. OMG so much money… but I got this amazing car charger that can also be used in electrical outlets. So when I go to work I don’t have to bring my charger from home, I can just bring my car charger in with me. Hehe yay! And I also had to buy a charger for my iPod because I destroyed that too. Wow, I really have to take care of my chargers LOL
