You might wonder (or not) what have I been doing in SH the last couple of days?
#1: I am happy to say that I’m over with jet lag! Being jet lagged for a week is not fun, but it’s not end of the world either, specially when I’m on vacation I’m allowed to sleep whenever I want 😉
#2: I’ve been meeting with friends and family…. eating a lot of CORNS!!! Yes. I’m having at least 2 big corns per day! 😯 Talking about being obsessed 😉
#3: I’ve been doing a lot of shopping! Coats, skirts, scarfs, etc.
This meal was prepared by my favorite untie. She knows me well and made many vegetarian dishes! 😀
assorted mushrooms with fresh bamboo
salt boiled shrimp
water celery with smoked tofu
smoked and fried fish, a typical Shanghai dish
chinese greens with bamboo and fresh shiitake
pork belly with chestnut cooked in a red sauce
assorted mushrooms, fresh bamboo salad
It was an amazing meal~~~ My untie cooks the best homemade food ever, even better than my mom 😀 She’s like my second or chosen mom. I’ve stayed with her family many times and she always took care of me 😀
This second meal was at a fusion restaurant with 3 primary school friends.
fruit and veggie salad with a sour sauce
sauteed cabbage with bacon and carrots
squid packet covered by almond
sauteed greens with shrimp sauce
rice bowl with shiitake, chicken and poached egg
casserole of tofu, mushrooms and cheese
spicy frogs with peanuts
for dessert we shared a mango pudding
4 girls, 8 dishes and 3 hours talking! 😆
I have a lot more food pictures! Stay tune! 😀
