We visited Yu Yuan after Xin Tian Di, but sadly we were too full to try the famous xiao long bao there. We did have ice cream though! 😛
Came across this interesting shop and bought some snuff for my sister. It’s quite funny when she uses snuff coz it looks like she’s sniffing drugs (but she’s not, obviously!).
Us girls wanted to reward mum & her colleagues with a homecooked meal, so we made a pseudo-Korean meal for them. The tofu soup was chockful of ingredients, ala Tan Family style! Always more ingredients than anything else. LOL
Other than shopping and eating, there really really isn’t much to do in Shanghai. It’s very much similar to Singapore, just that signs and language are in Mandarin. I went again in Aug 2012, and I stayed at home 80% of the time coz it was so freaking hot. Like really way much hotter and humid than Singapore. A 10 min walk to the nearby shops had me dripping sweat, and the Starbucks staff asked me if I was ok (like if I was going to pass out from the heat). Embarrassed mucho?
