SHANG-Highlights!

Shanghai is one of my favorite places to visit! I love that it’s only 3 hours away and the fact that I have so many dear friends who live there. Each time I come, Nix and I do our personal rounds of restaurants and a wee bit of shopping.  Even if my Mandarin is close to nil, I find it quite easy to get around. I guess we’re just lucky because there are a couple of taxi nightmares that my friends have experienced.  What I am sharing with you are the highlights from this recent trip, a photo essay of random photos that made my 4 day escape quite memorable!

 Each time I come to Shanghai I give my friend Angelo Guesse a call!  I love the fact that even if he is so busy he takes the time out to meet me and have a meal!  He has been in China for quite some time now and I enjoy his company very much.

 When in Shanghai I never fail to come to Din Tai Fung!  Its a Tawainese restaurant chain that is all over Asia.  Wish someone would take it to Manila!  They have really yummy food!  This Green beans with minced pork is a favorite.

Modern Chinese ART!  I am so enthralled by this new wave of Modern Chinese artists.  I find the images they produce both funny and sublime!

This is my friend Eddie Fung.  He is just one of the sweetest persons on the planet!  Did I mention that he is also a talented Fashion designer?  He graduated from Parsons and he is set to launch his mens wear collection called "COMPOUND" very soon!  I have seen some of the samples and they are beautiful!

I just love walking around when I travel.  Its something I don't get to do in Manila as I am always in the car!  Rushing...rushing..rushing.  Having my get away gives me the luxury to just walk and enjoy the scenery.

Fast friends!  This is Kyle although we just met this trip we have been introduced by Bob through Skype.  He was just absolutely so fun to be with!  Glad to finally meet him!  We had a funny experience over dimsum lunch on this trip.  Because none of us spoke Chinese and the Dim-sum menu had only photos and no english translations we just pointed at what we thought looked good.

 We then ordered a vegetable dish and thought that lotus root sounded yummy.  Well it looked interesting enough?  Wish it tasted good though!  LOL!   We all had a taste and left it alone after that.

 We all were invited to the Canadian Chamber of Commerce during my stay!  We had the most fun table!  At the end of the ball we were the only ones left dancing.  Who could resist Michael Jackson and Madonna!  Thats Olivier, Eddie, Anna, Effie and me!  Doing a bit of "La isla Bonita"!

 The Canadian ball was really fun!  My personal highlight was spending time with my favorite heterosexual man!  Albert seen here with his wife and Bob and Effie!
