Long Weekend Birthday fun

Long Weekend Birthday fun

Last Friday, it was Qingming Festival, which meant a 3 day weekend for us! This was the first time we stayed in Shanghai for a holiday, but we had just as much, or even more, fun. Sunday was Thorben’s birthday (32 – getting old 😉 ) and we pretty much celebrated all weekend.

The weekend was off to a good start with “Social Retox after Dark” on Thursday night at the W. It’s a monthly night brunch they’re doing with free flow drinks. The food was delicious and it was a fun night.

Friday, we tried out a new spot for lunch and had yummy southeast Asian food and then checked out the largest Starbucks in the world, which opened in Shanghai a while ago. It’s huge and filled with tourists/people but it was still pretty cool to go see it once 🙂

For the exercise part of the weekend, we helped 2 of our friends move that day and then had a poker night at our place. Saturday night, we went to “The Big Fat Sober Party” – a cool event with food, mocktails and stand up comedy.

For Thorben’s actual birthday on Sunday, we had a big brunch with almost 30 people and then enjoyed the great weather at a park – it was sunny and 28 degrees 🙂

Overall, a fantastic, sunny, friend, food, and fun filled weekend!
