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

As most of you know…I’m Shanghainese! (post) πŸ™‚ 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!
