At ShanDong

Went makan in the kampung. They plant their own sayur. Damn good the food, much better than the restaurant, and it is hygenic.

Some starters. Just like mom's cookings. There are more but people are too busy with the food, they don't even allow a second to take pictures.

From the peak of Mt. Tai (泰山), where the Emperor Qin (秦始皇) and alot other Emperors came here for the 'praying ceremony', Emperor Qing was the first to visit Mt. Tai. During the olden days, it was believed that Mt. Tai is the tallest and nearest to the sky, hence the 'praying'. For those who are familiar, 孔子曰:"登东山而小鲁,登泰山而小天下"。

Peak of Mt. Tai.

There are about 6k stairs from to the peak. Took around 5-6 hours from bottom to top. This is the steepest area, about 60 degree against the ground level.

Yeah, it is the cherry season! Delicious!
