Shanghai, China


Yes, your eye is not playing trick. That is Metro logo, our Singapore Metro in Shanghai! I was attracted to this big billboard during my recent trip in Shanghai. I like the creativity of the building design, which is shaped like a dome. On top of that, the dome is lit up by lights.

Of course, I did not miss the opportunity to shop inside this shopping mall. I was surprised to see alot of familiar local names inside this shopping mall. Like the famous Bread Talk, Food Republic and many more.... For the first time in a foreign country, I felt like I was like shopping in a "local ambience", I must admit that the feeling was good. For Singaporeans who are stationed in Shanghai and if they miss home, maybe they can shop here. This may help them to feel that they are just one step closer to home.

Cosplay

Didn't know that our youths here in Singapore love Cosplay so much. Was rather surprised to see such a big group of them at Suntec on last weekend. In fact, I must say that our cosplay here are as good as those cosplay which I saw in Japan, Tokyo-Harajuku.

Guess the youths must have spent a bomb on those costumes. Check this one out... With big wings!




They were happily posing. Actually, such events should be encouraged, after all is healthy event. At least, the youth are pursuing their dreams...

Photographers are everywhere, busy taking photos.


This is the best! With big wings.... really have to salute to this young man. He must have spent a bomb on these wings... wondering how is he going to manage with such big wings... Will he get the chance to demonstrate how he flies?


Cosplay in Harajuku, only on every sundays.

Liu Li 琉璃



Liu Li (Crystal) 琉璃 was quite unheard of, until recently fengshui products that are made of Liu Li are getting popular here in our local market. But the history of Liu Li can be traced back as far as 2000 years back. It was then considered as priceless treasure back in the olden days, this was due to the secret of making of Liu Li. Back then, only a handful of people knew the process of making Liu Li and the secret of making them was well-kept. Thus, making Liu Li as priceless treasure.
In China, Liu Li is considered as one of the popular Art items besides Silver and Gold, Jade, Bronze, and Ceramics. And in certain religion, they believe that using Liu Li can help to stay healthy. With such good background on Liu Li, having Liu Li as fengshui products should make them even better.
As such, fengshui products that are made of Liu Li are moulded to the shapes that resembled the commonly used fengshui products. To find out more about fengshui Liu Li products, you can view this www.fsliuli.blogspot.com

Is 2 Deg C now

Just curious what is the temperature going to be like over at China. A quick check on my iPhone, it shows that temperature over there now is 2 Deg C. Gosh...this is indeed cold. To think I was there a week ago, the temperature back then was like 20 plus Deg C, and now it has dropped to 2 Deg C! This is too extreme!

Hope that temperature will not drop any further. Cheers!

Case Study 1

There are so many buildings along this stretch of road and most of the shops inside the buildings are selling the same kind of stuff. Look at the photo again, there are so many shoppers around but not all the shops get to enjoy the good sale. So what is the reason behind it?

Xitang - Mission Impossible III

Welcome to Xitang, the ancient water town in Jiashan County, Zhejiang province, China. This is the place which Mission Impossible III was filmed.

I had been wanted to visit this place after watching the Mission Impossible III movie. Finally, I had the chance to visit this ancient water town, just like other water towns, this place was packed with tourists from over all the places, it was crowd.

And due to the large crowd, I did not have the chance to complete touring the whole water town, Xitang. Unlike my the previous trip to Zhou Zhuang, I had completed the whole water town! Nevertheless, one of these days, I may re-visit this place, Xitang, again.

Anyway, here are some of the photos which I took during my visit. Enjoy!


Xitang is rather "modern" despite the fact that this place is an ancient water town, they have bar and cafe along the whole stretch of old houses. And alot of places are air-conditioned too! Great place to stay for a night!


Row, row the boat. The boat ride here require you to put on PPE (Personal Protection Equipment) - float.

The button museum - guess how buttons were made during the olden days?

Enjoy Xitang - Fenhu beer. Nice beer!

Design or fengshui purpose?

This is something interesting spotted during my last trip in China. A round designed feature right in front of a building entrance. Is this just a design or for fengshui purpose?

Missed the winter feeling

Finally, I have the time to blog. It has been more than a week since I last updated my blog. Well, I was away to China last weekend to do my fengshui research there. Prior to my visit, my friend told me to bring more winter wears as the temperature was going down to single digit Deg C!

Initially, I was quite hesitate to bring in more clothings as I like winter - the cold feeling, and I had survived from 6 Deg C with just only a plain T-shirt when I was in Sydney. But there again, the temperature in China seems to be rather different from other places. And I remember last year when I was in China - Beijing, the temperature was like more than 10 Deg C but there I was, high up in the Great Wall of China, feeling very cold. And because of that Beijing experience, I decided to bring one extra clothing to keep myself warm for my last trip to China.



Maybe the weather knew that I was coming, the weather became so good that even the locals complaint that it was hot during my 4 day stay. And the funny thing is, the weather took a change when I was about to leave. It started to rain when I was in the airport, the weather became so bad that I was stranded on board (plane) for more than an hour before the plane was allowed to take off.

Maybe I brought the "warmth" there and I took it away with me when I left. At this point of writing, according to the weather reported in Yahoo Weather forecast, the temperature has dropped to 6 Deg C again! Gosh, I miss the chance to enjoy the winter feeling. Maybe I should go back there to have fun in winter? Really miss winter.

High forehead

I ever heard people commented that having high forehead is a good sign, it shows that person who high forehead will either a hold high position or someone who can command. But wait, not everybody is suitable to have high forehead. For example, ladies should not have high forehead! In face reading, it is believed that ladies who have high forehead may not have good relationship with their spouses.

But there again, I need to stress that we cannot judge a person by looking at the forehead and start to say that person will command a high position if he is a gentleman and as for ladies, they will not have good relationship. There are other factors to consider too!

So next time, when you see a person who have high forehead, is just an indication that he may hold high position or someone who can command.

The Kelong Experience - Kukup

It has been long time since I last visited this place - Kukup. I guess my last visit was sometime back last year or so. Still remember I wrote an article on Weekend Getaway in September? I mentioned that there are many resorts in Kukup which one could book and stay for a night?

Finally I have my chance to come back here again. To visit this nice quiet fishing village and keep myself away from our busy city lifestyle for a short while.

Here are some of the photos during my stay there.

One of the resorts which you can find in kukup.

Waiting for my boat to come.

The new jetty, this jetty was not even built when I was there last year.






The blue floating platforms. Waiting to embark.


Welcome to Kelong. The fishing farm.


Fishes saying hello to me?

Have you been to Kelong before?

The challenging platform - got to watch out for your steps, one wrong step, one will end up swimming with the fishes!


Is feeding time - Look at the fishes, they were hunger for food.






This is a cute dog, she was supervising the visitors. Just to make sure none of us jump into the water.

One of the biggest fishes in the fish farm. According to the boss of the fish farm, this fish is easily weighted more than 10kg!!



A closer look on the big fish.



Time to leave the kelong. If you have not been to kelong before, I strongly you should try to visit one for at least once. Is a different kind of experience.
