Shanghai fusion funnies. As I walked around the city centre, I came across various things which really caught my attention!
It was slightly past CNY, but some places still had the post-CNY decors on, including this. A giant CNY “Christmas” tree.
Surrounded by red lanterns and golden bells. First time ever seeing this.
Just a couple of blocks down the road, I came accross this. A Bvlgari booth located just right outside a historical Chinese temple….and worst part of all, the booth played shuffle clubbing sorta music, blasting its way out through the crazy ass giant speakers. Right next to a temple, deemed sacred in the eyes of believers….hmmm …
The fusion funnies kicked up a coffee thirst in me. Haha. We stumbled upon this tiny cafe, called Cambio Coffee. The stall was very small and all tables were taken as we entered. The patrons were mainly foreigners.
I had to order my coffee to go with the lack of space. The barista was somewhat talkative, giving us a short education session on the beans. The coffee drinking culture just opened up to the locals several years ago, and tea drinking culture still predominantly takes place here.
My long black cost about RM 15, and the taste was a little let down. Somehow, the coffee was just too sour, and I struggled hard to finish it since it was only a small cup. It definitely was not something I’d expected.
Alrightey, dinner venture coming up next!
