artistic Shanghai

last but not least, we went visiting a couple artistic spots in Shanghai in these 4 days. this is the M50. feeling like a petite version of 798 in Beijing. A number of Shanghai artists open their showrooms and studios there. You can visit galleries or maybe enjoy a coffee there.

this is 1933. it's a renewed butchery building. a number of artists and designers open their studio there. we find that place from the tourist guide book. and well... nothing much to see. if you have too much time for your trip, you can spend a tea time there maybe, if not, let's wait longer maybe till next year to see more stuff opened there.

and this is one of the must go tourist spot,  tianzifang. just another cultural shopping spot i would say. the one special thing we did there, we sent our families a postcard there. and mr.Tony sent me one to be received next august. will see what he wrote then. hahaha *u* it's overall a very happy trip to Shanghai for my birthday. weather is perfect, although it rained a little, it kept those days cooler from the crazy summer heat. it's time to wrap up and get back the mood for work... ah... the semester is coming. looking forward to sharing more fun moments with you all here. stay tuned! muahhhhhh*

a sacred place in the busy Shanghai

this is where we went to after the beautiful lunch at la petite fontaine. at the very busy center of the city, there is the sacred place and all luxury malls and designers' label nearby. i made a wish to bless all my families the best of luck and health, and i feel lucky and satisfied with all that i've got and gone so far. wish me luck for my next goal of the year in 2015, haha... for sure i will tell you all if i can make it. but i gonna keep it a secret for now. *x*

that was on another day, but i would like to share with all of you as well. that's a thai resturant we went to the night before. it doesn't look like we were in Shanghai, it's like we're in bangkok or bali or somewhere like a resort. it's at the middle of the jingan park right opposite to the temple. i heard that it's owned by some hong kong rich men, and it's really popular there. my friend said it's difficult to get a table there without early reservation, haha, lucky us got a chance to go there. food is good and service is excellent too. if you ever miss thai food in Shanghai, try this out.

on my birthday

does this look like Hong Kong to you? it's so Hong Kong, with IFC and similar looking buildings around in pu xi, the other of the river in Shanghai. after the beautiful lunch in la petite fontaine, me and mr.Tony spent the afternoon at jing an temple district (see the coming post for the blog post of that area) and at last we went to the malls in pu xi to wait for the sparkling and gorgeous evening of Shanghai to come.

thanks mr.Tony for the loveliest moment of all, having my birthday dinner in scena at ritz carlton shanghai. honestly, it's just another expensive Italian restaurant with good food like any other one in hong kong, but... it's the best place to enjoy the beautiful night view at Shanghai where you can see the Oriental Pearl Tower sparkling and shining like a magic wand right next to you. food (not all) is yummy, it's average but good enough, and it's just comparatively a little more expensive than those ones in hong kong. we are on the 52/f and they got another chinese one on 53/f and an open bar on the roof top on 58/f as well. you should spend a nice afternoon or an evening there if you love the view as well. *u* happy birthday to me... haha!!
