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.

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.

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!

Yesterday I ventured out with a friend to a place that I have always wanted to experience: a cat cafe! I absolutely adore cats and I think they can really lift your mood, and the whole concept seems very Asian so of course we had to go.
