Hi all,
This is the sixth part to our updates,

Silk Factory

First image : We visited a silk factory and gain many new insights on silkworms, the making of silk and also the quality and usage of silk. I still remembered that I ate three pieces of silk worm feces. At that point of time, no one else dared to try to taste it, so I tried eating it. It is already fried and actually less than 1cm in length. It is quite tasteless. It is good for usage as a herbal medicine, and is quite expensive. One tiny piece can go for up to USD1, so after eating (or swallowing) three tiny pieces, the guide decided not to let me taste anymore (haha). I believe that the fun in travelling is also tasting all kinds of exotic food.

Second image : The silk is actually quite stretchy, soft and comfortable to touch!

Third image : The sales person demonstrating to us the advantages of using a silk blanket and pillow, and also trying to sell us their goods.

China Technology Museum

Fourth image : The entrance of the museum.

Fifth image : The museum is quite huge.

Sixth image : A beautiful art sculpture spotted in the museum!

Seventh image : A large dinosaur skeleton statue!

Eighth image : A beautiful abstract sculpture!

Ninth image : A chinese word abstract sculpture!

Tenth image : A spacesuit!

Eleventh image : An artist's concept of how a landscape of a moon colony would look like in the near future.

Twelfth image : When a person sits on a chair in this simulation, a machine will flip the chair around 360 degrees in a random direction. I tried this simulation, even though you get a headache after that due to the fact that gravity is still around, but overall, it is quite fun and quite an innovative idea.

Thirteenth image : The back of the museum, where a metallic globe can be seen.

I have come to the end of my post, stay tune for more upcoming posts! Hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays! Cheers! =D
