My Shanghai Visual Diary is a collection of photos I took during my half-year stay in a beautiful city in Mainland China. The beautiful city is often called the "Paris of the East" and I spent many days of freedom, friendship and happiness in there. This photo collection is my gratitude to everyone who made that experience for us everlasting and unforgettable.
Part 1 is about the beginning. How we settled down. And how we went with the basics.
|This is the storekeeper. She became our friend. She takes care of the store in the mornings. All the foreign students get everything that they need from the store- breads, tissues, drinks, milk, beer, nicotine, notebooks, pens and many more. This is where I get my internet card.|
|It was as if we were transported to a land I only saw in fantasy movies. I was literally in awe seeing the beautifully designed houses and buildings that were built beside the roads.|
|This is a photo of a typical Chinese merchant selling ornamental plants. Most people in China use bikes. He is one of the reasons why Shanghai is full of color, energy and vibrance that day.|
|Some restaurant crew members doing their stuffs on that day.|
|This photo was taken in front of Luneta, the only Filipino restaurant in Shanghai, with my Jie jie (Chinese for big sister) and Kuya Zee. It's the tail end of winter in Shanghai that time and we're loving it!|
|A view of Luneta's interior from the outside. It's always a good tactic to make the dishes visible to the the people outside.|
|With dishes like this, who wouldn't want to come in and have a try? It's Pinakbet and Sweet & Sour Fish Fillet for lunch. For more information, please visit www.lunetashanghai.com.|
|Glass walled-restaurants are pretty effective right? It was fun to look at the Chinese folks getting enticed by the dishes served at Luneta.|
|Evert was going for some delicious-tasting bread with meat floss like the ones that you get at Bread Talk. However, I must say, that even the ones that you get in an ordinary supermarket in China is so much better.|
|You will find a myriad of herbs, spices, mushrooms and preserved foods in a typical Chinese grocery. You won't find these stuffs anywhere else. I wanted to buy some of them. The only thing is, I don't know how to use them.|
