Where we went to start the year

...and more interestingly, what we did while we were there.

Stole some horns from Muse after counting down at Lounge18 on the Bund

Queued up for the yuckiest snack that smelled like garbage and tasted probably like garbage had I tried that before

Sat on each other given the chance

Stood in the way of other people's photos

...more often than we're proud of

Took a stab at Hanyu pinyin

Posed in bathtubs, fully dressed

Had takeout in our hotel room on the 31st of Dec

"Drank" tea from the spout

Left a mark in Starbucks at the Yuan Gardens

Looked angry and complained half the time

Looked stupid the other half of the time

Had roast geese HK style

Sampled Pierre Hermé's old and new flavors at a hole-in-the-wall restaurant

Lunched at Cépage

Shanghai was polluted, dirty, and icky family fun. HK was the usual indulgent food fest with money well spent. Though the latter trip was cut short due to an important event, it won't be long before I return. This time, with the bf.

Thanks Randy for providing recos and taking us out NY's eve! That really made the night!

And of course, a big thanks to Suen who shared my love for facial masks and desserts in the comfort of her couch. That's pure bliss.

Not forgetting AC who so kindly brought back Pierre Hermé macarons from Paris and taking me out for Yung Kee pei dan. I ♥ you!
