We would absolutely travel 2361 miles for this duck broth

Yes I am on an offal roll. Definitely not for everyone but duck vermicelli soup has got to be one of my favorite things to eat in the world. Learn more about it here.

You ask me what I did in Shanghai, this is what I ate did in Shanghai

And I’m not the one who ordered smelly tofu at 3am.

On this note, am off to France tonight for a rainy and white Christmas so this is looking very likely to be my last post of the year. Have a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year boys and girls !  Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t and see you around next year.

I am in love with the gorgeously-restored 1932 Art Deco building which houses the musem and I always find it inspiring to go there for a few quiet hours in the afternoon. The museum is not big so its exhibitions are in turn bite-sized and digestible even for those allergic to contemporary art. Oh, and a cuppa at its roof terrace cafe is a must.

To chuan’r and friends with luggage in tow. It’s becoming quite a ritual I must say.

Was fortunate to be back in one of my favorite cities on an extended work trip late last month. I don’t know why but I felt extra emotional to be back this time even if it was all winter and bleak. It was a city where I met boys who broke my heart but also chanced upon the love of my life, hung out with fun acquaintances, drank too much and made fast friends for life. I think I miss it a little more each time I’m back even though I know it is slowly transforming into a city I will barely recognize one day.
