Happy Valentine’s Day!

Yes, I’m aware it’s August but today is Qixi Festival, the “Chinese Valentine’s Day”. When in China … 🙂 It happens on the 7th month on the 7th day according to the lunar calendar, so this year it’s on August 17. I think last year I don’t think I even knew about it so I’m catching up on what’s going on this year. According to me colleagues, my main source of Chinese culture, nowadays it’s celebrated the same way as in the west: Presents, flowers, going out to dinner …

We planned a great evening a few months back already, without the knowledge of the date. First, we’re going to have burgers – very romantic – and then we’ll go to see the Cirque du Solei show “Toruk – The First Flight” at the Mercedes Benz Arena in Shanghai with some friends. Should be fun!

And because this post doesn’t have any pictures, here is one of pizza because pizza = love.
