shanghai photo diary.

The first seven days was spent PURELY catching up with family. That is, literally breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the moments in between. I almost forgot how big my family was. Now with additions to the family (i.e cousins getting married and having babies), my family has grown to an even bigger proportion than when I last remembered.

Regretfully a lot of photos weren't taken in Shanghai, rather a comprehensive photo journal on the cities on the outskirts of Shanghai (more on that later though). For now, the few gorgeous places that we did visit in Shanghai and did manage to preserve are compiled here in this short photo journal post.

1. Wondering the laneways of Xin Tian Di
2. Cooling off with some lemonade in Tian Zi Fang
3. Walking the beautifully lined streets in the French Concession area near Ferguson Lane
4. Dessert, complete with glutinous rice balls, red bean, ice cream and grass jelly.
5. Me =)
6. Car watching at night in Xu Jia Hui
7. Taking a taxi home, looks like taking a starship travelling light years away
8. My grand uncle's room, in his traditional heritage protected town house. Kept in it's original form for the last 60 years of him living there.

Shanghai is rather segmented city, bits of old and big chunks of new scatted around the city. It's a wonderful place to explore with so many places for photo opportunities around every corner.

I have a few posts to catch up on, as I just got back from Hong Kong, there are also many photos to share from that trip as well.

P.S. I had so much trouble trying to upload these pictures on photobucket as it kept loosing its quality everytime I tried to enlarge one. So for the sake of my sanity, and three days of trying to size these pictures, I finally loaded these on blogger! Any advice from anyone on how I can fix this issue would be GREATLY appreciated!



  1. The dessert looks good, I want some of that and love picture 7, I can only imagine how recklessly fast that must have been!

  5. Awesome photos!


  6. It depends on the quality of the original photo. I'm definitely not an expert in this subject but I never increase the size of my photos. :/ They can get all grainy or pixelated. Though with a DSLR I rarely have that problem anymore.

    Anyway, these photos look great :) Love #7
