Shanghai - Day 10 - 18th Sep 2012

Ni Hao Everyone,

Its day 10 over here for us. It started with a bit of a sleep in as our first performance didnt start until 11.30am. We all arrived at the pearl tower, the tallest building in Shanghai standing at 468 metres ready to wow the crowd. After performing a 20minute sequence of 4 different dances we have to say it has been the best show yet. We quickly got changed and headed up the pearl tower to floor 268 to the sight-seeing floor where we had a full 360 degree view of Shanghai it was incredible. Followed by a few ice creams and bags of lollies and dont forget more souveniers we headed to the bus on a trip to the Shanghai markets. As we arrived our tour guide Shelly showed us up to the famous tea show where we experienced some different flavours of tea, some definately better than others. We then had 50minutes to scramble around the market for last minute shopping before we headed back to the hotel to get ready for the big night ahead. 6.30pm we all gathered in the lobby dressed to the 9's ready to take Chantelle out to her most memorable formal ever. As Harriet escorted her onto the bus we made our way to our last chinese restaurant. After another fun filled rice dinner we made our way to the river boat cruise where we stepped onto our own titanic. The views of Shanghai at night that surrounded us were spectacular! The end of the night seemed like it was arriving, until we got back to the hotel where we occupied the hotel bar for presentations of the Chinese Laundry awards and we all shared our Peak, Pit and Laugh of the trip. Today has been a perfect way to end the trip and as the night goes on the girls are still downstairs dancing as we sit here and write this blog, goodnight and see you all soon!

"Pound it yea?"
