Family, Living in... Shanghai, Uncategorized MUM AND DAD IN SHANGHAI! (part 2) 8 November 2009

More bits and bobs from gallavanting around town whilst Mum and Dad were here visiting. So much fun!!


Super cute pic of Mum and Dad!

Queuing for our lunch at a place near my work, where I go about twice a week.
They are SO SO SO cheap ($2 for a full meal) and so good!

You pick these ‘lil dishes, pop them on your tray, and pay.. then grab a seat and chow down

These dishes? US$5 for the lot! BARGAIN

At Bon Matin, one of my fave patisseries

Getting pampered and doing nails with Mum

After our Duathlon, the 4 of us got 1.5hr foot massages including all-you-can-eat-and-drink. Bliss!

Randomly one night, we saw a Dewars bus, offering free scotch tasting

Cool interior huh?!

3 glasses of scotch, we were taught all about the drinks and asked to deduce which one was Dewars

Happily waiting to start our session

BOTTOMS UP!

All done and with our Dewars freebies 😛

We had dinner at Moon’s Steakhouse.. great food

Enjoying ourselves at Babydoll. Check out the size of the sushi and my drink!

At a Chinese restaurant… about to eat hairy crabs

Chris gamely tackles his

I only picked a bit at it. Just too much effort, for too little meat….

I love my husband. He keeps me well-fed 😀

      it’s a bit deceiving cos the photos are taken over the course of a day, but i split them up, or put ’em in different posts. But i HAVE been wearing them often 😉

    Yeah, not so much for me on the crab/lobster thing. It just freaks me when food comes with eyes staring at me too…

      even the eyes aside, it’s so WEIRD to see all this unidentifiable goop and bits inside… eek!
