My Weekend...

Weekend is always a time when we would eat out with friends. This weekend we were having a farewell party for friend. Like most Asians we party by having lots of things to eat. Inevitably this became a pigout weekend. We began our food hunt with a brunch of Shanghai-nese Dim Sum - a common breakfast for many Chinese. The menu included different types and ways of making dumplings: fried dumplings, dumplings served in soup, dumplings stuffed with shrimp and etc. We had our fill.

After which, we visited a desserts place called Genki Cafe where we shared a huge mango shaved ice and tiramisu crepe stuffed with fruits - a very popular Japanese and later Taiwanese sweets.

After 3 hours of karaoke, we proceeded to Jazz Cat Cafe which is well known for its Hot Pots. What a way to spend the weekend. And of course we took many pictures to remember the occasion by - and I could clearly see my face bloated a little with every restaurant we visited.
