In 2010, Shanghai held a World Expo inviting all countries to come exhibit their nation’s culture, architecture, and spirit. Fast forward four years and all that remains are rubble, a mess of construction sites, and a few, still open buildings.
The Saudi building is one building that is still opened to the public though a vast majority of its displays have been removed and replaced. One famous part of the building still remains intact, which is this circular movie theater with a moving walkway.
So much pretty, and perfect for my signature lazy abstract, motion pictures.
Another building still open is the Italy building, cue more elaborate architecture, lots of pasta, and gorgeous artwork.
It’s a pity that everything else is nearly torn down/deserted.
My aunt brought us out for dinner at this horribly high class mall, the prices burned my eyes. The two restaurants we ate at were reasonably priced however.
Lunch: Fried Rice with Pork (so idealistically seasoned and cooked *sniffs*)
Dinner: A lot of scary things I don’t eat, egg tarts, fried noodle and sponge cake
The Bund at night. Decorated in lights and clogged traffic.
