This week I am feeling a bit sorry for myself as I have a cold but I have been squeezing lots of oranges and drinking the juice, so I expect to be better soon. I have been learning about Pixar animations at school, so this has been a good excuse to watch the films again. I went to a “2-parties in one house” on Friday night – one for children & one for adults, & had chicken & pizza. We could really only find this fact that is “blogworthy” (which is a new word in our house.)
Topic – Chinese Post boxes
Although most things in China are red, the post boxes are green.
Also, please ignore the ‘bunny ears’
Walking about Shanghai this week we:
– Had an organic crepe with banana & nutella (yum!)
– Saw a man & an orang-utan (why is he cuddling it?)
– Saw a van driving on the pavement
We walked from Anfu Lu to a bookshop on ChangLe Lu called Garden Books, where we saw most of these sights. The book shop has a café, so we could read all their books & then decide if they were interesting enough to buy. We bought some more books of walks.
Some other sights:
Nightmare of the week.
– having to see everyone’s pants etc drying when we walk about!
Word(s) of the week (in Chinese, of course):
– ni jiào shén me míng zì? (what is your name?)
Quick Film Review: Fantastic Mr. Fox, starring George Clooney and Meryl Streep. It’s reached No.2 in our list of weirdest films we’ve ever watched. Certainly not worth going out of your way to see.
I have not forgotten about the contests explained last week & I am looking out for your 10 out of 10 comments. So far we have 62 approved comments. Also if the comment is flagged for spam it will not count, even if I approve it.
