Shanghai Sight-seeing With Our First Guests from Malaysia

Backdated post: June/July 2013

Just before we went back to Malaysia for our month-long holiday, we played hosts to 2 special guests from Malaysia... Mah-mah and Koo-koo, who came over for a 10-day visit. Although we were still not very familiar with the city and the places of interests in Shanghai, we managed to bring them to some of the famous and must-go tourist attractions like The Bund, Nanjing Road, Yu Yuan Garden, Xintiandi and Qibao ancient town. 

Here are some photos of our "revisited" places with Mah-mah and Koo-koo. We hope they had an enjoyable stay with us although on some days, we just stayed at home and did nothing :p

We took the City Sightseeing bus for the first time with them... It was a convenient way to see the city without too much walking (ideal for Mah-mah, who couldn't walk far).

It was a hop-on-hop-off bus and every time we boarded the bus, I would dash to the upper deck to enjoy a better view :)

I went on the boat ride again...

A striped puppy?

Bought some crayfish to try... and of course we also brought them to try out many other local food around town

Loved this HUGE 1000cc (1 litre) chocolate pudding drink *slurp*
