It´s time for Teppanyaki

It´s time for Teppanyaki

You stay in Shanghai and consider a new experience for dinner? Here a recommendation from our current trainee, staying for three years in Shanghai.

Try Kagen Teppanyaki No. 28 D Taojiang Road, Xuhui District. Great Japanese food freshly prepared just in front of your eyes. All you can eat with free flow of beer or wine, really nice deal as food quality is pretty good and fresh. It’s highly recommended that you make a reservation on time.

This is a fantastic experience to have great Japanese food in Shanghai. A nice place to enjoy with a couple of friends. Yummy!

A break in Shanghai

Saturday morning. A recreation day from business. I am walking from my hotel near Shanghai railway station to East Nanjing road and discover a new highlight:

The Jing’An Sculpture Park

A family-friendly park located in north Jing’An. This 30,000 sq. meter park at the corner of Beijing Xilu and Chengdu Lu boasts sculptures and statues from over 61 cities. Visitors are allowed to walk on the grass, which is fairly rare for Shanghai. In the center of the park lies the newly opened Shanghai Natural History Museum. Pay 30 RMB to get in, it is a worth visit, outfitted with both living and dead animals. Open daily: 6.00 – 20.30.

Happy Mid Autumn Festival

Happy Mid Autumn Festival

The Mid Autumn Festival is one of the most celebrated Chinese holidays. It is held on the 15th day of the 8th lunar month. Based on the Gregorian calendar, this year’s mid-autumn day will be held on October 4th 2017. Chinese legends say that the moon is at its biggest, brightest and roundest on this day. And the term round implies family reunion in Chinese. Families get together to eat moon-cakes and celebrate the end of the harvest season. It is often called the Women’s Festival. The moon symbolizes elegance and beauty.

Activities include fire dragon dancing, enjoying the displays of lanterns, and eating moon cakes. People are used to have moon cakes under the moonlight with family members. Moon cakes are pastries filled with gooey sesame, red bean, and walnut meats. Yummie … Enjoy a happy time.

The Seven Bowls of Tea

The Seven Bowls of Tea

Lu Tong, the famous Chinese tea hero, was from the city of Jiyuan in the Chinese province of Henan. He was a mid-Tang Dynasty poet devoted to tea and tea ceremony.
The poems of Lu Tong are unusual, risky and a little strange, people call it the Lu Tong’s Style. The translation of the “Seven Bowls of Tea” hereunder:

The first bowl moistens my lips and throat
The second bowl breaks my loneliness
The third bowl searches my barren entrails but to find
The fourth bowl raises a slight perspiration
The fifth bowl purifies my flesh and bones
The sixth bowl calls me to the immortals
The seventh bowl could not be drunk
only the breath of the cool wind raises in my sleeves. Enjoy
