Day ONE of three
Nichol: “We’re here! Oh my… it is so pretty here.
Let me take care of business as quickly as I can so we can enjoy a few sights before we have to return home.”
They both rent bicycles and head over to the Marketplace.
Nichol goes to introduce herself to Lu Zhi (General Goods) and obviously has a bit of a stumble while trying to communicate.
She must not be saying the right word or placing emphasis on the wrong syllable or perhaps Lu just doesn’t like cookies
Nichol perseveres and they soon find common ground
So what is Zach up to while Nichol is busy working?
Viewing a work of art? Whistling to see if the critter will come? You decide.
Sun Young Kim (Special Merchant) tries to flirt with Zach.
“Thanks, but no thanks.”
Zach & Nichol learn a few songs to take home and share with the others.
Addy’s Note: Zach sings them every time he takes a shower! LOL
Nichol does better when introducing herself to Ho Sung Kim (Relic Merchant)
Nichol and Wu Xio (Book Merchant) quickly discover that they share similar interests.
Nichol and Maya Wang (Food Merchant) also instantly connect.
The Shang Simlanians have an interesting custom they follow when done talking with Nichol.
Addy’s Note: Gotta love those spontaneous interactions! Not sure if Nichol initiated them or if the merchants did, but it was fun to see each one.
Business concluded, Nichol decides it is time to meet the young woman hanging about Zach and also following Nichol around each store.
Surprisingly, they click…
Then share a moment of pure silly fun…
Nichol then goes shopping for souvenirs…
… and is quite pleased with the gifts she purchased.
After a day of business and a little bit of pleasure, Zach & Nichol purchase dinner.
Zach must have really liked his stir-fry!
