With chuan’r on wheels, who needs McDonald’s delivery ?
Not very good.
Omg so good.
Erm yes, turtle and snake herbal hotpot.
CHICKEN CARTILAGE CHUAN’R ! Om nom nom.
Extra servings of dishes that I like.
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.
It was late autumn in Shanghai when I first checked out for myself the cutting edge concept store housed in a quaint three-storey lane house that Dong Liang is. A great store to explore if you are curious about emerging Chinese fashion designers. I was there for Beijing-based Central Saint Martins-schooled Vega Wang but ended up with a dress by Shanghai designer Ni Hua under her Miss Mean label instead. It was hard to leave the store empty-handed. I think my wallet ached a little.
