The next day was our last day in Shanghai, and we spent most of our day in Yu Garden. It’s a special place that’s considered as one of the best garden around the area, plus it’s a great place to stop by and relax. All the buildings around the area have a similar style to this one:
From the supermarket, to the salon, everywhere you look, it’s quite a fascinating market indeed.
My mom looked so happy, finding her tea garden store
Look, the amazing flower tea, they’re everywhere around the garden:
I have a fascination to horror movies, and in the early days, during my elementary schools, I used to watch a lot of them like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street, and this guy somehow wears the same clothing as Freddy Krueger
My great uncle, staying on his mobile vehicle while waiting for my mom shopping.
We also went to this Shanghai Theater to take a cool picture together, and we went to the rooftop and relax while waiting for the result.
Then I went to the Yuyuan Garden itself, even the ducks are enjoying themselves:
Coming back to Suzhou, we got a special treat from my brother:
Guess what those are? Give up? Highlight the next line to know the answer:
Silk Worms’ Cocoons~!!! Roasted!!! Gross~!!!
Ega tried it for the first time, and he liked it:
Frida cringed looking at us eating these stuff…
Here’s an exclusive take of my face analysis of this food:
“This looks disgusting, but Ega seems fine, so let’s try one…”
“It’s coming in, it’s coming in, I’m hoping it’s dead, please be dead, please~”
“*Crunch* taste it my tongue, be strong~!”
“Frak, this doesn’t really bode well for me…”
Actually, the inside of the roasted cocoon tasted a lot like lobster’s brain, very soft and delicious and probably enriched with fattening cholesterol, but the outside layer, the skin itself, it’s not the best taste in the world, not even in the States… I stopped eating after my first… That was probably my first and my last roasted cocoon. Worth a try~
