Back from Shanghai

I’m back from Shanghai! The food was great, we toured neighbouring Suzhou and Hangzhou on day trips, and the other women in the family bought a lot of things. All I chose for myself were a bag, a keychain, tea leaves, and some sweets. I’m a terrible shopper.
Oh yes, my parents sent me and my sister to the tailor’s to get measured for a cheong sam each. Mine’s red and rather pretty and will most probably be worn during Chinese New Year.
I will be compiling my travel log, day by day, in the next few days.

    Cuifen – simple sites rock. They’re the best.
    Karen – I see you’re enjoying yourself! Yes you should not drink Chinese tap water. My hotel even placed a warning next to my bathroom sink about it.
    So the tailor actually visited you! Talk about good service. And Chinese silk is excellent, good and cheap. You have to take photos of yourself in your new clothes!
    Merry Christmas!
