This hotel has a beautiful view of the Shanghai skyline. We booked on agoda.com and got a club level room on the 48th floor for a phenomenal deal. It included free internet, drinks and breakfast. If you want a scrumptious pastry or just need to get your clothes washed visit the Wash Bakery which is less than a half a block out the front door of the hotel. They sell pastries and coffee and for about $10 will wash and dry your laundry. Especially delicious is the coconut raisin pastry.

Cooking with Mum, Dad, Susie, her daughter, Andrew and my friend Dione was not such a drunken affair in case you were wondering! We learnt to make Dry Fried Green Beans (my all time favourite vegetable dish in China - (yes Agata, this is the one that you liked too!), Twice Cooked Pork - which is green peppers and belly of pork (Yep, the one Agata & I ate ...

This has been a really challenging work experience so far, but I have a feeling that good things are to come! ...
