I've posted photos from my Yunnan trip here. I've kept them low-resolution this time.

I went to 云南 with a tour group and this is what I have learnt about the place. 云南 is all about jade factories, TCM plants, silk suppliers, cheap electronics, more jade, more Chinese medicine and a bunch of cunning salesmen. That pretty much sums up my trip.
Welcome back. Yes, I'm sure tour groups can be a rip-off, cos local guides aren't paid squat they make it up through store commissions. But I'm pretty sure you all ended up on such a package cos everyone in your family was too lazy to plan the itinary for the trip.
Oh! Forgot to tell you. Was at the MIT Co-op two weeks back. I bought you the latest book by Paul Davies (this famous Nobel Laureate in astronomy who gave a lecture during Ipho Star-gazing night)

Just returned from the Ubin cycling trip with some friends. The weather wasn't too bad, just a little hot. Some of the interesting things I saw along the way:
This is quite bo liao but I was thinking about those guys who walk around with signboards displaying the words "Free Hugs" on them, when I realized they aren't really giving out free hugs at all. For every supposedly free hug they give you, you are giving them one back. It's a one for one exchange, not exactly my idea of free.
Are they giving them out in Singapore already? That was originally our idea.
