Seesaw Cafe - Sproutworks - Innisfree Green Cafe

June 27, 2016

What can you do when you have your holiday? In Shanghai, the answer is definitely visiting cafes with great interior and tasteful coffee. Me, together with friends visited Seesaw Cafe last Thursday after a super hot and humid day in Shanghai. The place is very open and clean, we chose to seat outdoor, yet this is not really an outdoor because the place is still inside. There is another place too located just in front of the cafe. 

I ordered iced mocha together with oreo cheesecake (yes my love is for cheesecakes). Then there were also Ethiopia cold brew coffee and the matcha cake. For me who usually always ordered Americano from any cafe, the mocha was pretty decent and so did the oreo cheesecake.  I love the place, it was not crowded when we went there, so i think it will be suitable for me if i would happen to study or work my things here. Plus, it is such a great place to take photos!

Then we tried ice cream with grey cotton candy on top, well the taste was ok. Probably just because it looked interesting like a cloudy with thunderstorm on top. They gave us 2 flavor, vanilla and chocolate. Yet the amount of the ice cream was little (i guess it balanced the huge cotton candy they gave us). But well, at least we tried!

 Next, here comes the healthy dishes. Should definitely try if you are a fan of healthy and tasty dishes from Sproutworks. They gave you such a generous portion and different shops provide different menus. I think that the biggest shop they have is the one in Xintiandi. You can click here for more information about the address and their daily menus. 

What we ordered here are Roasted Cauliflower, Mint, Feta Cheese, then Mixed Tomatoes, Grilled Corn, Pesto with  Potato Salad, Celery, Egg and Quinoa, Pine Nuts, Raisins. The second menu is Beef with Brown Rice and Baby Carrots. It's my second time trying Sproutworks and their menus are quite nice! 

When you are starting the day with a cafe, it is good to finish the day visiting another cafe and just sit there, talking. For the first time, i visited the "happening" Innisfree Green Cafe located in East Nanjing Road, just across Forever 21, that is surely you would not miss this place. At first i wanted to order the matcha ice cream (yes i am an ice cream freaks). But then i got tempted once again by the beautiful color combination of my mango and berry smoothie. I feel like the taste of my smoothie is somehow healthy in a way or it was just my feeling since they are using organic stuffs, 

Last but not least, my too-happy-candid pose :)

Mid Summer in People's Square Park

June 26, 2016

Hi People!!!
It's been more than a month since my last post (well actually almost 2 months). Hectic days were hitting me constantly from school works, teaching kids, and weeks of exams, so please pardon me for the super long MIA. Now i am going to settle my debt for not posting in the beginning of this month. 

I started my day went to a cafe nearby Jing An Temple. The cafe that has clean and minimalist interior. Which is why you have to be patient and wait for the next post for my food diary last Thursday. Yeap wait for it guys :).

Shanghai's weather and temperature is pretty much unpredictable as the weather forecast said it'll rain but eventually the sun was super bright and the weather is kind of humid that made your skin super sweaty and sticky, and will give you that kind of feeling if you unpurposely be in contact with your friends.

What i am excited about these days is : ZARA is on SALE. Like literally everything. except some of the new arrivals. From winter outfit till summer outfit that came out like last week, Zara is giving huge discount sale. Apparently, this situation is not that good for me and my pocket, especially when school is done and all i might do is go to shop while waiting for myself to go back for summer holiday. 

The denim piece that i got from Zara was only 169 RMB after discount, when originally it was 259 RMB. Pretty good deal, no??? The fabric is lyocell, and such a great outfit for summer. Since the front side of this denim is low and would be better to add tops inside like this cute flower top i got from F21. The purpose is not just to cover yet to add some spark of summer spirit inside the denim jumpsuit!!!

Per my experience living as student plus expat in Shanghai, who does not love great discounts on such a great products?? Another example is the white sneakers i got from H&M for 50 RMB. Yes it is super worth it. After you know that nowadays people are falling for white shoes and sporty clean look for the summer. 

Pardon for my super random happy face in this post, i just can't believe i am going home for summer after 1 year :D and for you guys who would like to know more about the products i am wearing, the links are down below after the last photo

Flower Top - Forever21
Sunglasses - Hotwind

See you in the next post, ah and wait for my food diary adventure ;)
