Singapore Adventures: Part I

Last weekend I took a little trip over to Singapore to visit my boyfriend. Our first day was filled with shopping, tea (both traditional and bubble), macaroons, lamb, beer, the bay, sunshine, and flowers. Read on for lots of photos of the brilliance!

Shanghai Summer to Autumn Weather Makeup

During the height of summer Shanghai is incredibly humid. And I mean walk-out-the-door-instantly-dripping-sweat kinda humid. Now that the weather is finally starting to settle down I can put a bit more effort into my makeup and know it won't just melt right off! I know this is quite a different kind of blog post for me, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.

Din Tai Fung and Xintiandi

Recently I had the pleasure of hosting a very handsome friend of mine in Shanghai. We decided to eat at Din Tai Fung, a fantastic Taiwanese restaurant. He had been to Din Tai Fung before in Singapore, however he had never had their soup dumplings. I know, sacrilege! Needless to say a trip to Din Tai Fung in Xintiandi was high on our priority list.

Subconscious Day Spa

Monday was 中秋节,or Mid Autumn Festival. Usually people go home to visit their families and eat special foods, in particular the delicious 月饼 (moon cakes). By Monday my friend and I had already eaten plenty of moon cakes, and we don't have family to visit in China, so we hit up Subconscious Day Spa instead.

Escaping Construction Noise at Zen Massage

I'm a huge fan of massages, not the gentle patting kind, but the full on belt-the-knots-out-of-you kind. I decided to check out Zen Massage to see if they were up to par.

Arario Gallery and Mao Space

On Friday two new exhibitions opened at Arario Gallery and Mao Space, two art galleries that are right next door to each other in Shanghai. On Saturday a friend and I went to check them out, after the opening night crowds had died down!
