Shanghai series continue

Thanks for the warm welcome! 🙂 I’m feeling better but still not adjusted to the new old life yet. I might announce two big changes in my life soon…. both are great news 😀 So stay tune!

I went to a place called 1933 Old Millfun, one-time largest abattoir in East Asia, with historical buildings blended with modern fashionable elements, has become a new landmark of Shanghai. It is generally positioned as a place that absorbs the upscale and fashionable quality of Bund 18, the vitality of Xintiandi, and the artistic atmosphere of tianzifang, combines creative experience and creative production, and assimilates interaction and inspiration.

Style: the buildings are peculiarly arranged into a square with an inner circle. Four buildings in the four directions constitute the square factory area and are linked to the central 24-side main building through stairways. Buildings at different heights and spiral galleries are designed as complex as a maze but in clearly demarcated orders. The flat slab for the processing workshop was very advanced at that time.





I needed a permit to take pictures inside the building

and then my friend and I went to an old-fashioned restaurant in the area




pork ball covered by glutinous rice


filled with salted egg




crunchy tofu


stir-fry greens


it was delicious and fun to eat there. We didn’t have to order, they just bring what they cook for the day. Everything was delicious! 🙂

Next post: Hong Kong! 😉
