~ In Shanghai! ~

I'm currently in the very sunny, humid city of Shanghai. Got in yesterday & lost no time exploring Suzhou & Tongli. Gosh, at one point it got unbearably hot & we had to seek refuge among the bamboos. Yeah, it's even hotter & more humid than Singapore!

In Suzhou

Luv how the Chinese translate from Mandarin to English. Anyone care to tell me what the heck that means?

This is a fruit which I've not seen before. It has the texture of soursop minus the sweetness.

For dinner, we went to a Japanese restaurant. The food was fab! What more can I say. It cost about £20 per person & it's a 'eat as much as you can' type of meal. So we experimented & ordered any fanciful dishes!

Sashimi - a selection of raw fish, absolutely delicious!

That's raw beef! There's a way of eating it with special sauces!

Finally, moi & my best friend. 

She has been asking me to go over for a while & finally I did! My boys are with my parents who kindly offered to babysit them.

It's been a while since hubs & moi been away on our own! Anyway this trip is to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. Gonna make the most of it! TTFN!
