Zhongshan Road, Xiamen China 2011

I'm back from China trip about 2 months already, took so many pictures, but till now i have yet to finish post it..Next time, i will try to post my vacation pictures during weekend if time is allow me to do so..or i think next time i better don't take any pictures during a trip...
Earlier i have few posts on Shanghai trip, actually i first go to Xiamen then only transfer to Shanghai.
Xiamen is a small island and very similar to Penang here..

Not many places to visit, the local people told us to drop by Zhongshan Road for shopping and foods hunting..

We tried this peanut soup as we thougth a lot of peoples buying so the foods must be nice.

I like little snack like this too! Feel just like chinese version of pasar malam. Don't need to rush through your pictures from China holiday... I can wait for each post to come =) Have a great weekend!

That's a good tumpang. Wish my husband would travel more so I can tumpang as well. Looks like a lot to eat! And I'll bet they scalp the tourists too :(

Such a long line outside the peanut soup shop. I have never tried it, now I am curious

anne said...

Did you try the prawn fritters ? It looks interesting :)

Lori said...

Love the pictures! We are planning to visit China within the next to years so I'm going to love your posts. My husband has been to Beijing a couple times for work, but I haven't been able to go with him yet. The food definitely looks amazing, even if it only tasted ok. :)

Those street side food looks interesting.

Sonia, I love to see the pile of prawn fritters. Looks nice. I lost my camera in Xiemen (7yrs ago) I lost all my photos taken in Xiamen . cry!!

Thanks for sharing your pictures with us. The eating places are always so vibrant and full of people in Asia.

I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw these pictures, seeing that China was really clean and organized. That first image was just amazing. The stacked dim sum and fried treats are so enticing. And wow, the selection of skewers is such a huge variety! Sure beats New York hot dog stands. Even octopus and noodles. And the final picture looks like someplace in Europe or America. Amazing how much China has developed. I would like to visit this place, although I've actually never heard of the place, so I have no idea what region it is in. Great pictures; you make China look so great! I am quite envious.

When your hubby coming SG again, hehe...

lena said...

at times people there have different taste buds compared to us here. Is the peanut soup savoury or sweet?

Dmarie said...

ooh, thanks so much for taking me along for the trip. (of course, you've made me hungry for some Asian cuisine though it's only 9 o'clock in the morn here in western Kentucky!) what great pics--thanks soo much for sharing!!

Cheah said...

Wow, so much goodies. Xiamen, is it the 'kampong' for Hokkien people?

SueSue said...

Wah Xiamen changed so much. My grandma kampung is from Xiamen. 18 years back I bring my grandma back to Xiamen, wah so damn kampung. Must make a trip back there againa and visit my cousins in Xiamen.

religion and food said...

spiritual food is a must for every Christian. Most of us know the story of Jesus Christ. Immediately, after Jesus got baptized, he went on a mountain and fasted for 40 days and 40 nights.
