Before I start, I must inform you that I do not have any food porn. I'll try to capture more, but most of the time I just forget.
Either way, Stella and I made plans to check out M50, a creative zone with lots of interesting works of art. We originally wanted to go to the Dongping National Forest Park (东平国家森林公园) on Chongming Island (崇明岛), but Baidu and Google Maps told us it would take approximately 4 to 5 hours via public transport to get there. Oddly, another source said it would take only 2.5 hours, but we didn't want to risk it, so we planned for M50 instead.
We met up with friends Arthur and Andrew at the lobby of Grand Pujian. They had no plans for the day, so I invited them. We took the subway to West Nanjing Road (南京西路) to grab lunch.
West Nanjing Road is a street filled with stores (e.g. UNIQLO, H&M) and LOTS of food. Arthur wanted Ippudo, but after seeing the prices (58RMB for a bowl of ramen? Yikes!), we settled for a cheaper alternative in the form of RamenPlay.
I am not a picky eater, so anything that isn't bitter, sour, or gives me a stomachache is good.
After ramen, it was time to start Day 2 of Fall Break!
