Shanghai Girl!!!

Hello Folks!!! It’s been a while since I posted…Sorry!! Bear with me!! ๐Ÿ™‚ And, keep coming back…Loving the feedback! And, I really appreciate you guys for reading ๐Ÿ™‚

As most of you know…I’m Shanghainese! (post) ๐Ÿ™‚ And, some other family-centric (post).....Reflections (post) So, the other day I went to the Shanghai Fraternity Association (Shanghai Club) to celebrate a birthday! And boy, was I a happy jolly girl!!!

The food was epic. Sadly…I did not take as many pictures as I wish I could have (Picture Fail)…I was starving and everyone wanted to eat…so as soon as a new dish was placed, it was scooped up just as quickly!


Shanghai pride! Reppin’ my Starbucks Shanghai mug during breakfast. Woot Hoot….(a typical breakfast for me!!)


Beautiful, Runny, runny Eggs. Look at those yolks…Crystal clear, jelly like, deliciousness…..MMMMMM I had two! Muah ha ha


Fried Bean Curd with Veggies, Mushrooms, etc Wrap. The outer bean wrap was slightly fried but not too oily……:)

There were LOADS of traditional Shanghainese dishes *Sigh* like double boiled soups, glutinous rice, noodles, veggies, Meats galore dishes…but I didn’t take any pictures *Sorry ๐Ÿ™ which means, I’ll be back!!!!!* Towards the end of the night…I busted out my camera again, and caught these jewels…


Shanghai Deep Fried Pork Dumplings. It’s this crispy fried outside, and as you bite into the skin and pork……..there’s a pool of pork soup that’s very slurp worthy and tasty!!!! :DDD


Longevity Peaches!!!! (ๅฏฟๆกƒ) It’s like a (bao, ๅŒ…) or (mantou, ้ฆ’ๅคด)….but shaped like a Peach!!! And, they can be filled with Lotus Seed paste or Red Bean Paste, ours was the later! ๐Ÿ™‚ And the red been paste was smooth, velvety, hot and a perfect finish for the night…Oh wait……


There were 3 accompanying Birthday Cakes to accompany our big group! Happy Birthday Andy!


We jetted off to Three Monkeys for drinks! (And, for me…a Longevity Peach!!
