So the next day we started the day leisurely, getting up at like 10am which was nice to have a lie in. Then headed to the antiques market by subway.

... to the hostel to chill out for awhile, and it wasn't until almost 8:30 that we really got hungry. Shannon was busy with blog-post-writing, so Andrew decided to go to Wu-mart for self-catered dinner again. Andrew picked up some of that same Chinese cabbage salad (which was delicious!), as well as some pickled cucumber salad (spiral-cut!), and some long bean salad as well.
