SHANGHAI HIBERNATION

Our trip to Shanghai, China wasn't as exciting as year 2008/09. I already caught a mild cold before our trip. Then it turned into a raging nasal allergy that lasted for a few weeks. Medicine wasn't helping me at all. The cold winter days that I like so much had become an annoyance. I was already afraid that I might get the H1N1 influenza. Thank God, it was a false alarm.

HB and I had our little hotel hopping adventure. We stayed at three different hotels during our one week vacation, from Howard Johnson Hotel Huahai to Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel Jiu Jiang Road and Grand Hyatt Hotel Pudong. We booked a two-night stay at each hotel. I whiled away most of my time snoozing, people watching through the window and lounging on the sofa, busy as a hibernating bear.

Nevertheless, we also had a little shopping, but most of the time just window shopping. :) We were able to get into some shops like MetersBonwe, H&M, UNIQLO, Muji, Zara, Y-3 and Carrefour.

On another note, most parts of China have undergone construction boom. Shanghai is not an exception, there are constructions everywhere. It's a usual scene.

  3. Hi Johnny,
    I guess we're just lucky that we have some free time to travel. But this time around, it was Christmas vacation / holiday season. How we wish it's a travel-related job. But it's not. Our biggest passion is travel, so we really make time for that. We travel at least 2-3 places in a year.:)
