The dress I wear, known as - qipao or cheongsam, symbolises many things! Shanghai glamour, the 1920’s - 1940’s.
Once cheongsams were shapeless and the women who wore them stayed indoors. But as women became liberated, educated and self-aware, they expressed themselves in form-fitting, brightly colored qipao that sent a message:
Look at me.

U want great wanton noodle (lye noodle-Hkg style) with fantastic char siew and roast duck? This place is worth checking out. Easy on the pocket too.
We went twice within two weeks. Once each week , coinciding with mister's medical appointment.
The lure of the (half lean, half fatty) beautifully bbq-ed and caramelised pork - char siew + the moist, tender roasted duck meat served on chewy lye noodles (Hong Kong style) is tooooo good to give it a miss; being in the vicinity.
The best so far beating some of what we had consumed in reknown chinese restaurants or other kopitiams and food courts in S'pore. 'Pun fei sao' (in Cantonese) - half fat half lean is the way we always order char siew. U get the best of both worlds. Neither too thin nor too thick, just the perfect cut and moist and juicy and tender.
The roasted pork belly on the other end, was too salty too our liking despite the crumbly, crispy skin. Doesn't leave a remarkable memory on us.
Plastic cups you say? I've got 18,000.
But who cares, no big deal. There will be more.
I want to be where the people are, not to be trapped in the mess they are making.
Swimming around in this...trash.
Up where they walk, up where they run, up where they stay all day in the sun. I wish I could be, part of their world.
