I am not the only one to find this department store, but more to my liking with cloths that fit me ....ha ha, compared to some of the other stores along Nanjing rd which seem to cater for i suppose more the local domestic market, lucky Shirley!! Well i went out without a jacket this morning and as it was getting slightly chilly tried on some jackets and not bad. They have a good range of clothing for every one. The price for the jacket i bought started at 1400 RMB and i walked away wearing this for 400 RMB, bargain away!!!!!

2.Starbuck in Zhongxitaifu Plaza is my favorite place to have a coffee and Tuna Sandwich.
I love to wander around food markets in Asia and this one was lots of fun in Shanghai. It has almost a carnival atmosphere as you see the locals buying up the local delicacies such as xiao long bao, pigeon egg dumplings and spicy cold noodles from the street stalls.
I hope these wonderful old markets will always have a place in Shanghai.
We stayed at a hostel near East Nanjing Lu (Road) and initially we were dismayed not to find meals that was inexpensive and authentic. After some days of exploring, we did. We had 2 dishes (big helpings) with rice for 2 persons for just 18 yuan! Even the hairy crabs can be had at cheaper prices.
Again, we initially window-shopped at East Nanjing Road only and found the prices higher than what we were willing to pay, since for us, winter clothes were only to be used once in a year or once every few years. Later, we found cheaper ones in roads parallel to East Nanjing Road.
We saved our money by taking public transport most of the time when in Shanghai, relying on its excellent network of bus and metro (similar to MRT of Singapore). For just 2 yuan, you will be able to travel far on the city bus.
