珠海, Pearl Sea (Part 2 : Night Life)

So what about the night life in China that perhaps we do not often see in Malaysia? There are really a lot of night clubs mushrooming in Zhuhai. Apart from the activities held in these night clubs, actually all these clubs had added colors to the city; as in they decorated the town in colorful neon lights. However, not all clubs are doing unhealthy activities inside it (but majority do), my first night, I went for a gala performance held just in my hotel ballroom. It is a pay to see show where we were entertained with songs, opera, comedies & sketches.



It is a value for money performance, we paid about RMB30 (RM15) for entrance fees. The concept is a bit of those old Shanghainese days, where we bunch will sit in a cosy long red sofa, and there will be waiter to serve us with drinks, fruits & titbits. Overall performance was really good and we even had S.H.E impersonators singing their famous number 'Superstars'.



After the show with a bottle of fine red wine & a bucket of Carlsberg, we felt a bit hungry so we went food hunting. Unlike Malaysia, there is not much mamak or stalls opening late night.But we managed to find our way to this famous local restaurant which was really good. And being a food lover myself, we tend to order various local delicacies which in the end we are unable to finish it all.



This makan stall is located by the roadside, many locals will frequent this place. Without thinking much we asked the waitress to recommend us their famous dishes. And the stall next to it, is a stall serving the 'Shanghai Siao Loong Bao".



I'm not much a porridge guy, our first serving might be one of the best porridge I had had in my whole entire life. The taste was so well blended making Malaysian chinese food looks amateur.



Due to the inadequate lighting, there's a bit of noise on the pictures taken due to the reasonably high ISO mode that I had set. Second we had this great Balitong (what do you call this in English ar?). Just nicely cooked, a bit spicy but tasty. Yummy, yummy, yummy...





By the time we almost half full, came this chicken fried with black fungus.



And our final dish is the 'SzeChuan Knife Noodle', this portion is for 3 persons and it is damn big for all of us. Super nice if I were to compare to some China-wannabe-restaurants in Malaysia, we can even put Dragon-i & Green Jade House in cold storage. Price is reasonable as well.

By the time we finished, it almost hit 3am and gosh we gotta wake up 8.30am for our 2nd day tour. More coming soon ya... Enjoy your weekend peeps!!!
