So…I’ve finally gotten around to writing this post after procrastinating for a whole month, and I’m really excited to be blogging about the 11 day trip to Shanghai and Hong Kong that my family went on in May this year, to celebrate surviving my first year of college.

I hopped off the plane atΒ L.A.X.Β Shanghai with a dream and my cardigan (does anyone get the reference?)….only to end up on the tarmac and be herded unceremoniously onto a waiting airport shuttle that brought us to the main terminal. I’ll be the first to admit that I was kinda shocked at how rural Pudong Int’l airport seemed; I had expected a nice fancy airport a la Singapore’s Changi Airport, given that Shanghai is a big city.

And gosh, I thought the weather in May (end of spring) would be bordering on hot, but NO IT WAS 16 DEGREES OUTSIDE. I was unbelievably happy to get away from the eternally humid and hot Singapore, to this pleasantly cool/cold ‘air-conditioned’ environment. We were most certainly off to a good start; read on for more!
