Bundle of Happiness

"Living Shanghai"

Pocket sized dynamites. They explode inside your mouth giving rise to countless, incredible sensations that go right down to your heart. The famous Shanghai 'xiao long bao'. This picture was taken at Yuyuan Garden - a highly touristy area in Shanghai, though I feel some of the best ones I've eaten are in other parts of Shanghai.

Also, after a crazy last 24 hours I'm not finally at the airport boarding a flight to India. A gruelling, challenging, demanding, stressful 10 months - that also had their share of some incredibly beautiful moments with some wonderful new friends I've made in this part of the world, several of who are from another part of the world - and who are a family away from family. As my roommate Irving says - 'brother from another mother'!

Happy Birthday Irving - it's his 25th birthday today - the guy, the friend, the brother who's done so much for me in Shanghai! Have a great year ahead and I believe "Together there is nothing we can't achieve!"

Can't wait to take our Green Propaganda forward!

Jia you ('add oil' in Chinese)
