What have I been doing last few days? Well…. eating these! The most famous pastry and bubble tea/coffee place in shanghai “85 degrees”. Look all the varieties of breads
mini cheesecakes and puddings
mini cheese bowls
more breads: with both savory and sweet fillings
big sections of cakes… they’re all pretty and super yummy~~
the store is really crowded all the time!
Me enjoying the flavored bubble tea 😉
I’ve also been going to hair salon pretty often 😉
Japanese food is one of my favorite cuisine (in addition to vietnamese and korean) so I’ve been eating it too
Look how fresh is the sashimi
grilled meat (chicken, beef and pork)
stir fry veggies
spicy beef ramen
All these food for 2 girls! 😀
Finally I’ve been under chinese medicine as I mentioned before. Look my arms and chest
Don’t be afraid. This treatment is called Gua Sha. There’s a movie about that.
Gua Sha therapy is closely related to the theory of meridians, one of the most important Chinese medical theories. The theory of meridians provides not only the theoretical foundation for diagnosis, but also guides treatments such as acupuncture, massage, Qigong and Gua Sha.
The meridians (经 jing) and collaterals (络 luo) are pathways in which Qi and blood circulate. They form a specific network that communicates with the internal organs and limbs and connects the upper to the lower and the exterior to the interior portions of the body. According to Chinese medicine, when external coldness or negative energy invades the body a disease develops. Thus people will have some physical discomfort such as dizziness, vomiting and pain. Gua sha can stimulate blood flow and remove coldness, negative energy, toxic-heat and lymphatic fluid from the body through the skin. Through the process, more blood serum is produced, thus improving the body’s immune system.
Less than a week before I go back to US. I’ll make sure to BUY enough, EAT enough, PLAY enough and SLEEP enough!!! 😆
Q: Have you treated by alternative medicine?
