Day One In Shanghai

Day 1 - After landing in Shanghai airport around 7am, we were taken to this place for our breakfast.... oh dear, I cannot remember the name of this place, it is either Cheng Huang Miao Shopping Street or People Square (please forgive me, I am illiterate in Mandarin)... as far as I know, we came here to eat the little dragon dumplings and to look see, look see....

I was very impressed by this place,
it must be called the People Square
because all I saw were people and more people...

tour guide (in black) reminding us
what time to assemble back in this place...

Starbucks, I can see u here...

now... must go look for the food..
Dragon Dumplings, here we come!

4 of us ate ordered around 20 of these
siew loong pau (s) (dragon dumplings)
and one must know the technique of eating these..

firstly, u bite an opening
2ndly, u slowly suck out the juice
from this dumpling..

then put some striped ginger...
and open your mouth...ahhhhh... ngam...

this also needs sucking expertise..
do it slow otherwise might burn tongue one...

after eating, i walked around and saw them "doing" these..
i mean preparing the dumplings...
and i notice... "no gloves" la....
never mind de...
what has been swallowed were delicious...
yours truly could still walk around..

walked around...look see look see....

snap , snap...

my friend bought one of these dolls..
50rmb = rm 28.00
not cheap leh..

one for the album....
