Had our last breakfast at the Shen Zhen’s Di Hao hotel then we set off to Hong Kong in the afternoon. We were “stuck” at the customs for so long because all the “Nei Di” people all going to the competition as well. Lucky, due the the organizer’s effort in making going through custom easy. I am not sure how but we were given a special route to go to Hong Kong but of course, we still have to go through the custom.. Haha.. I remember it is so tiring because we have to pull our luggage up and down.. I really mean up and really down…. Reach Hong Kong and we took their MRT to “Da Xue” station before we were taken to the Hotel by their shutter bus service.
I can’t believe I am summaring all into 1 whole section because I forget what happen there… eh… I just remember it is so tiring. I have to do Chang Quan followed by Spear then Sword that day WITHIN 20 minutes!!!! Thats one of the bad point of the competition but I am so surprised that other people aren’t tired when they are also doing 3 routines in such a short time.
Results of Wufang’s Male Athlete
Hao Meng: 2 golds
Jun An: 1 Silver, 1 Bronze
Guo Hong, 1 Gold, 2 Silvers.
I got gold for my spear and silvers for my quan and sword.
We went to “Wang Jiao” and walk. Its so much fun there and the things there are quite…. cheap and expensive. The shirts are all so unique. I wish I have bought more money there to buy shirts… sigh..
There is a wushu performance by the organizer and a few team like the Philippine team performed a skit on the last day before the whole event closed. Our team also won the 1st runner up overall champion in our category.
Reached Singapore at around 11pm.
Our last day of training in Shen Zhen before we head to Hong Kong to compete. We didn’t have a morning run but me and Crystella make it a point to wake up early to run. Jun An wanted to tag along but due to his injury. He can only walk. We still eat breakfast at the same old place. We have double training today again. During the second training, we have some “exchange” with the students over there. Have quite some fun and taken some photos but we didn’t exchange numbers though.
Our last day in Shen Zhen, we have a whole day in Shen Zhen if I wasn’t mixed up with the dates. My memory is falling on me and I forget what happen.. Haha
2nd day of training in Shen Zhen and this is the first day we saw the Shen Zhen Ti Gong’s wushu team. We were informed that we are unable to use all their carpet because The Shen Zhen’s team is coming to train on Monday. ( Only on Monday ). We didn’t have our morning run though and we took taxi to the training ground. I still remember, Coach Zhou and her team was the first to take taxi there and Coach Xue with us are the last team yet we are the first team to arrive there while Coach Zhou was the last team to arrive. This is the first time we see them training. They have a 11 year old girl.. She does Nan Quan and she is doing well for her age. We were all quite amazed by what she can do. Had our morning training and had a VERY VERY VERY bad lunch. It just sucks.. Had our second training in the afternoon before we return back. I remember we were playing soccer as to warm up ourself.
3rd Day of training in Shen Zhen. We resume our morning run because we are so restless during breakfast yesterday. The run seems like shorter and the weather not as cold anymore. Perhaps, we have already get used to the weather. We only have one training today and I remember the training was quite bad because we were really too tired already. In the afternoon, we went back to hotel to have a rest while some went elsewhere. We then went to “Dong Men” at night. It was so cold there at night. I bought some keychains, shoes and handphone thingy. We have had a good night sleep.
It will be a pretty long post if I put all my daily encounter into 1 post so I decide to cut them into different parts. I am typing this to keep it for my own record so I will have a memory in the future. There is no need for you to read it. 🙂
I am flying off on the Saturday morning, ( 1st March ) and if I were to take taxi there. It will cost me a bomb ( mid-night charge 😛 ) and hence I decide to stay over at Hao Meng’s house and his dad will bring us to the airport together. I met Hao Meng on Friday night and we went to the airport at around 4.30am in the morning. Reached and saw a group of RP students and Jun An there. Coach Xue and Coach Zhou along with Chu Quan and Crystella has not reached yet. They are pretty late though but we manage to check in before time. It was the first time I took an aeroplane. We took Cathay Pacific and reached Hong Kong. The service on the plane was good. Its just like what Yao De told me. You are treated like a King. The only complain I have is that the place on the plane is just too small.. I have a hard time sleeping. haha
Day 1 start officially when we landed on Hong Kong airport. Its quite nice to be there seeing another country but we didn’t manage to stay at the airport for long as we are going to take a bus to the custom of China and Hong Kong. We took a photo at the Hong Kong airport. I will show you when I got all my photos arranged. The bus ride is so long that a lot of us fall asleep. We reached the Hong Kong custom soon and after we enter the custom, we got stop by the Hong Kong police ( thanks to our LONG weapon which make it so obvious that we are bringing weapon to Shen Zhen…. ). Its about Lunch time now and we are a bit hungry. After we show them the letter from Singapore Police stating the reason of us bringing weapon, we are allowed to go. From what I heard, its a bit ironic.. The letter is in English and the Hong Kong police has problem understanding the letter and he got one of us to “translate” it for them. The air is so fresh in Shen Zhen although there are so many cars there… perhaps, its due to the cold weather? Reach Shen Zhen’s “Di Hao Jiu Dian” and yeah.. we rest on that day. Had our dinner at the restaurant in the hotel… The taste of the food is just BAD… Later a group of us went for us massage.. Had my body relaxed. 🙂 Me , Jun An and Hao Meng sleep in the same room.
The first day where we have our training. We were all waken by the morning call to wake up at around 6.30am to have a morning jog. Its about a 2km run.. We didn’t manage to sweat much because the weather is just too cool. If I were to run without a jacket, I will freeze till I die… Its just cold.. After the run, we went to train on our routine in the park and soon we went back to the hotel to have our breakfast. The breakfast taste SO MUCH better than the dinner last night. I like the “Char Siew Bao” and the Porridge a lot. We then went to the training place by bus. A rental bus. The training place is empty as it is on Sunday and there isn’t anyone who train on Sunday there. There are 5 carpets where we can use there. Trained on our basics and started to train on our routines. Had our lunch at a foodcourt nearby and went back to the training ground to have a nap there before the second training. We were totally drained out after the second training. Wei Liang, captain of RP Wushu IG, fainted and were sent a hospital. Had our dinner at the same restaurant where we have our breakfast before we went for a walk nearby. This conclude the second day.
I am still typing this post from Hong Kong. Haha. The hotel I am staying in Hong Kong is so cool lor… 5 stars hotel… Its called L’Hotel.
