Sorry for the lack of updates these days. I've been so busy with midterms :(
Here are some pictures of Xintiandi, one of my favorite places in Shanghai. It's very touristy though and everything is pretty expensive.

A mini waterfall/water fountain at the edge of Xintiandi

A view of the shopping mall

Water fountain in front of "Fountain", a dessert/wine bar

My spring break is coming up! I'll be going to Phuket and Ko Samui in Thailand... so excited! (:

Hong Kong pictures

Some pictures from Hong Kong...

1881 Heritage - a beautiful shopping/dining center

Modern Toilet restaurant - where everything is toilet themed! This is Korean-style pork served in a toilet bowl. Also had ice green tea served in a urinal... haha

A view of Hong Kong island from a terrace at Harbor City

Venetian Hotel & Casino in Macau. It's huge! This is just one small part of it.

Back to Shanghai

Finally back from Hong Kong!

I must say, Hong Kong is definitely more of my taste than Shanghai.

Why HK is better than Shanghai:
2. People speak English
3. Shopping is much better
4. More diverse
5. People don't drive as crazily... aka I don't feel like I will die every time I cross the street

Why Shanghai is better than HK:
1. Nightlife is much better
2. Everything is cheaper!

We also visited Guangzhou and Shenzhen in China. In HK, we visited some companies and had lectures, but during our free time, I did some sightseeing, eating, shopping, and met some friends who live there. I definitely miss Hong Kong, but it's good to be back.

Will post pictures soon!
