Xinjiang 新疆 Food @ Haikou City 海口

We were here for massage before our dinner, 120renminbi 人民币each for 2 hours session. (approximately 100renminbi 人民币 for 50 ringgit).

Our 2nd dinner in Haikou City (海口) was at a Muslim Chinese restaurant at the famous food street, Haikou Golden Dragon Food Street and popular for their mutton cuisine.
Let the drink begins,

The inside of the Xin Jiang Restaurant...

A cultural show was performed with traditional Xinjiang 新疆 ethnic dance and others. My friend Pee Kiat was asked to join the dancing group at the stage, we wondered why he was picked for the dance probably because of his Malay look.

A Xinjiang cap was presented to him for his sporting participation.
