For a Chinese New Year getaway, there is nowhere else better than going to China to experience the culture and the spring festival! I had never been to the famous World Heritage – Fujian Tulou (Earthen building), and the little ancient town Yun Shui Yao (雲水謠) even though my hometown in Fujian is near by, I finally decided to visit there during my Chinese New Year holiday. Furthermore, Yun Shui Yao (雲水謠) is depicted in the famous Taiwanese film “The Knot”, mentioned of the same name as the ancient town Yun Shui Yao in Chinese in the film.
The temperature was extremely high in Fujian this Chinese New Year; therefore, I wore a very light suit and carried a coat with me, which turned out to be a brilliant decision seconded by my cousin who went there with me, since the temperature was approximately 27 or 28 centigrade at noon the day of our visit, and it was the first day of the new year of the Horse. Wow! Happy Lunar New Year and Kung Hei Fat Choi everyone!
The outfit I picked for this ancient and historical town was a fully modern style suit, which I wanted to use to contrast anachronistically with the old-fashioned town, hence the title – apt don’t you think? I think so! Hah! Chilling out in this antique small town on such a bright sunny day really made me feel like I just time traveled back to one hundred years ago, or perhaps was on a movie set. I seemed to hear someone whispering to me, “Welcome to Yun Shui Yao Chichi, take a deep breath and enjoy your time-travel back to the Classics.” – Lost in the phantasmagoria of Chichi Classics.
