Shanghai Walking Tour in French Concession

It was a beautiful Saturday afternoon that I decided to tag along my housemate for a walking tour in French Concession. We visited several sites during the tour.

Fuxing Park

IMG_3556 IMG_3557These are the two of the interesting architecture you can find.

I remember I was in a shitty mood after and great timing, my friends asked me out for dinner. Oh, Rubens, I miss you now. The feelings of knowing my phone will ring at anytime soon to get me out is fading away.

I asked my housemate to tag along for dinner and boy, he got along well with them. What a relief. It seems I met loads of great people in Shanghai. However, like I’ve said, you meet and bid farewell to loads of great people in Shanghai.

Happy Scorpios

Had no idea that the two other babes in my department have the same birthday month as me. We decided to celebrate our birthday together with our workmates. What did we do? Typical Chinese’s favourite, KTV!


Party World is the biggest KTV chain in Shanghai, I think. Similar to Red Box, I think. It has a splendid room, with a stage! So much different from the KTV I went before. Very spacious and glam!

DSC_6769These are the fun people that I mostly hang out with. Three more persons are missing in this picture; the photographer and two more went to the washroom, I think.

DSC_6788We had beers, snacks, more beers, more snacks, and more more beers! The last thing that came into action was the birthday cake! Didn’t get to eat it though. What a pity.


The only picture that includes each and every one of us. It was fun and I wish to go for it again.

Halloween 2009

It was Halloween and was my very first time to get myself a costume for this very special day. My close friend got to get both AIESECers and FAIESECers to dress up and crashed Shanghai’s infamous haunted mansion, Shanghai Nightmare. Lurking that night were…


Leatherman from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,


as well as Shanghai’s infamous mascot for its big event, Shanghai Expo 2010, HaiBao.


And spotted! Leatherman was trying to slaughter Shanghai’s beloved HaiBao!

IMG_2705Not to forget, we had a Vampire coming along with us. A package from New Zealand.


And can you believe it? Even a Shinigami appeared that night but she was no match to both Leatherman and the Vampire.

IMG_2712Meet my colleagues who are, like me, the AIESEC interns for the same company in Shanghai. Ying, the Vampire, just reached Shanghai early that morning. Trust me, I could not recognise her the next week in the office.


The night was awesome! We were like the only ones who dressed up to Shanghai Nightmare and became the center of attention from everyone. I must say I had fun and would love to do it again.

So, how was Halloween back in Malaysia?

My New Lair

I moved out one month ago. To a more strategic but more expensive area. I requested to change to a bigger bed as well as a bigger wardrobe. Therefore, I am happy happy! The room appeared to be this way on my final visit before I moved in.

IMG_3478IMG_3480Shit happened when I moved in into this apartment. Will share this shit in one of my upcoming emo posts which will take like ages?

IMG_3516 IMG_3517 IMG_3518Things started to get better when I started to settle down in my place as you can see from the pictures below. Look how cosy my room is?



Tempted to come to Shanghai and visit me? Come!

Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry

A friend of mine, Meg, brought me to this event two months ago (yeah, backdated post again, I know). As you will see from the pictures below, I should not have been there.

IMG_3470 IMG_3472 IMG_3473 IMG_3474 IMG_3475 IMG_3476

Like really, I should not have been there…

Not that I was an anti-social or something but I am so not fit into this place? Like, they all have amazing, awesome jobs! Well, I am not saying that I have a terrible and not awesomely awesome job. My job is amazing and I love it. Well, not all of the job descriptions though.

Anyhow, the thing is, these people involved themselves in the man-eats-man world longer than me (well, I’m not even in this world yet) and I know, that is the more reason for me to talk to them but look, it was not easy. It seems these people have known each other for long and they are all in groups! I hated it.

By the end of the night, we got ourselves to talk to this pair of men who are in their 50’s or 60’s. Nice but not so interesting conversation.

We have Malaysian Chamber of Commerce and Industry here in Shanghai and I wonder how its gathering (or party) is going to be like. I guess I have to find out. Someday.

Punchie #06


It was my first time getting a costume, celebrating Halloween in my life!

And that is not my costume.

Sunday, November 22, 2009


Have I introduced my colleagues? I guess no. I did not share much about my work in Shanghai as well, kononnya I had introduced my colleagues. My EP Manager *cough*Kenny*cough* complained that I did not post anything that is related to my internship in Shanghai.

IMG_3442This is Szu, a Taiwanese, an AIESEC Intern just like me. One desk away from me. A very cool and fun girl to be with. Good in both football and table tennis. Urmmm.. Will dig out more information about her during our upcoming drinking game.

IMG_3443This is Billy, a Philipino who sits behind me in the office. He is the employee of the company that I’m working with. In Shanghai for two years now. He has been telling me how cold Shanghai will get during Winter. His duty during the Winter is to make sure that I am still alive in the office.

IMG_3444That’s Eidolon, a Chinese. The only Chinese who has better command of English in the office. A very sweet and dedicated girl. We rely on her a lot on ordering food for lunch and occasionally, dinner.

There are three more colleagues but will talk about them in one of the the next upcoming posts.

So what do we do in the office?

Previously, we were paired up to do a task together.


I had to do campaign and events planning for the virtual world with Samuel, another AIESEC Intern. Fyi, that is our meeting room.


Szu and Billy had to work on bugs and tutorial videos together while Eidolon and Ellwyn had to work on the price list of the virtual items.

That was before. How about now?

Stay tuned for the upcoming posts…

Member Committee of China

Alright. Back to my way backdated post. And you know what? I can’t be arsed to type loads of words in my backdated posts now. The cold weather made me lazy! Shanghai is crazy! It’s not even Winter and it’s freaking cold now. Believe it or not, it was 1ºC in the morning! Fortunately, it was sunny. Alright. Back to my post.

I met up with the Member Committee of China the other night, thought they would be as cool as the ones we have in Malaysia. But meh!

IMG_3432I got to meet up with the interns who are lurking around Shanghai like me! That’s Cagri, a Turkish, on the left and Tom, a German, on the right. Cagri left Shanghai few weeks ago and Tom will be leaving soon. Shanghai is a sexy bitch. She made you meet herd of great people but she made you bid them goodbye before you could realise how fast the time flies!

IMG_3437Anyhow, that’s the Member Committee of China. As you can see, females dominate the males. How cool is that? To my knowledge, females are more dominant in Shanghai but males are more dominant in Beijing. Interesting fact, huh?


That girl in blue top, FORGOT THE NAME, is a Malaysian! Andddd..next to her is Dan, my (ex-)housemate, followed by Calvin, a Canadian, ME, Tom and SOMEONE from Wuhan. Now, that ends everything.

Stay tuned for my next way backdated post!

My 22nd Birthday!

I am going to skip all my backdated posts for my long birthday post. Yes, this is going to be a long post as I celebrated my birthday in Shanghai for a blardy week!


IMG_3584 Chilled at Zapata’s. Not many turned up but I had a good catching up session with Stefano and Ruth. Plus, it was great to meet Calvin and Tom again. The last time we met was a month ago, if I am not mistaken lol! And oh, I remembered I had not taken a picture with them when I got into a cab –__-


And guess what? I ended the night by receiving a fake 20RMB not from a cab driver. It was the cab driver who drove me to Zapata’s. Was educated on how to differentiate between the fake note to the genuine note by the cab driver who sent me home.


IMG_3604Free flow of drinks for ladies at I Love Shanghai which is a stone throw away from my place. Decided to have my birthday countdown there with my girl mates. Checking on cute guys, talking to some random people to wish me ‘Happy Birthday’ and guess what? Ying had the most crazy and random idea – to crash into our guy mate’s room!


All excited in the lift lol! It was fun and hilarious – figuring out the code into the building, walked in the dark, crashed into the room for a minute and left. A great way to start my birthday day.



Had Malaysian cuisine for dinner that night and it was awesome! I had bah kut teh and mee goreng! I wanted to try Penang laksa but it is only available on Friday and Saturday. Will definitely go back there again.

IMG_3622Not only did I have free dinner, I received presents too! I was surprised though ‘cos I never expected myself receiving birthday presents this year! Rising Star soap (indicates me to shower more lol!) from Kees, cap (Winter is just around the corner) from Meg, plush toy (decorate the mirror in my room) from Amy and a table lamp (there’s no table lamp on my desk in my room) from my beloved housemates.


Break for..

Friday Party!


Had my birthday party at one of my favourite bars in Shanghai, LAN. Experienced strip and lap dances from each and every person who turned up, regardless male or female. It was hilarious but fun lol! The turn up was good though some, Rubens abd Serge, were just 3 blocks away from reaching the place when we left to the next destination. Will be great if they could make it earlier and joined us.


We went to Muse at Park 97 and G Plus later. I got really drunk. A few called me but nobody knew what I was talking about that my friends had to take my phone from me. I threw up twice. Both when I got out of the cab. Car sick, I guess. And, I embarrassed myself at G Plus. What did I do? I fell on the floor somewhere near the club entrance. There! Drunk Angelina for you!

IMG_3669Fortunately, I have great friends around me. They forced me home when it’s only 1am and we chilled in my room for the next 4 hours. Had a good ‘I have never..’ game and seriously, for those who were there that night in my room, in regards to you-know-what, I am grateful that I met you guys in Shanghai.


IMG_3677The day for me to meet up with those people that I missed on Friday night. Had Brazilian buffet for dinner with Sonia and Rubens. They are leaving Shanghai in a month time so, I made a promise with them that I will go out with them every week until they left lol!


Later, I met up with JR who was not able to locate me on Friday night due to me changing locations in less than 30 minutes lol! Met up with James and his two other friends before we left to Windows Scoreboard together. Chilled and left to Richy for dance. Trust me, I did not drink any drip on alcohol. Been a sober, I could not dance so I left the club earlier. Well, is 2.50am early? lol!


Chilled at Zapata’s, countdown at I Love Shanghai, Malaysian food at Food Fusion, birthday celebration at Windows Scoreboard, birthday party at LAN, dance at Muse at Park 97, ‘dropped’ by G Plus, threw up twice, dinner at Brasil Steak House, drinks at Windows Scoreboard, and dance at Richy! So yeah, that’s my birthday week.

I generally had a great week and this week is going to be another good week as well :)
