Dinner: We were invited to a very fancy dinner at a very fancy restaurant. Unfortunately I couldn’t really take any pictures

We started our dinner with a few appetizers: Tiny fried fish with fried shrimp, glazed walnut. Then the food started being carted out: Shrimp with egg white, Shredded beef with sauce wrapped in lettuce, Turbo Fish, Rice Noodles, Scallops with ginger sauce, Lotus root pancakes with Fish balls, Duck & Pig platter and some sort of  icecream/marshmallow dessert.

Here is the only picture I took (I took some of the same plate, but they were blurry)

Shrimp with egg whites.

Taking the Subway

Going from place to place during Chinese rush hour can be very slow and hectic so we decided to take the subway. 6 people = 3 USD

While visiting some friends of friends, I came across this weird energy drink. At first I thought this might be gatorade knockoff, but then I was told that Lucozade was sold around the world.

Arrived yesterday (7/29/13) at around 10:30 pm at the Dong Fang hotel.
