I did a shoot with Sugizo today.
I still can't wrap my mind around the surreality of the events so I'll just do my previous travel posts first.
I'd almost forgotten how my blog looked like over the five days while in Lijiang. Almost.
I tried googling for ways to get onto all these banned sites (blogger/facebook/twitter) upon my arrival but it was just way too much work. Even when I did find ways to surf, I still couldn't login. Sighhh.
Well I guess it wasn't so bad for the blog since I would have needed to consolidate pictures anyway, just kinda annoying that I couldn't update fb and twitter as and when.
So anyway, Lijiang... I was there... on a friggin' real holiday.
It was so awesome it was kinda like, work-less (well for the most of it).
I'd been meaning to go on a holiday for a while now, but it just never really quite happened. I'm kinda glad that Abby reminded me of the supposed existence of such a intended trip one random day or I would have scheduled the whole of December for work otherwise. =_=;;
Okay anyway pictures~!
We stayed at Sleepy Inn for the first three nights. It's in Shuhe Old Town, the room's spacious, there's a skylight and we could see the moon through it in the morning.
Love the view~ :3
Went to the Liming Mountains on our first day.
Passed by the Yangtzu River First Turn (长江第一关) at Shigu mid-way. Apparently the flow of the river turns 180 degrees here, from south to north-bound.
Then to Liming Mountain~
Atop the Liming Mountain. Up and down the path we walked it supposedly totals up to some 10000 steps or so. Bad bad idea to do climbing on the first day. Reaaaallly bad. Our legs could barely move the second day onwards haha.
Ah well at least it was fun~ Headed to Lijiang Old Town for dinner.
They had so much awesome stuff but there's only so much two girls can order. Aiiiii. T_T
A whole pathway of wooden prayer plates. Really really beautiful.
I really wanna put Day 2 in this post too but I'm too sleepy. I'd just have do a very long Part II later! :D
Oh man, I'm so incredibly behind on my posts. I have like, the New York Part II, Yale Part II and all those ads and editorial and shoot posts which I'd been meaning to blog but have never got around to... I need to get over the feeling that I'm spamming my page if I update anything out of my system.
Hmm looking back, I really have a lot lesser entries this year than the last two.
