My Life in Pictures: What I Saw in Shanghai This Week

It is so hot in Shanghai everyone is wilting and flopping. I thought this guy next to the metro was dead and in Ikea there were more than  the usual people having a nap on the displays. The kids outside my lane have a new game: Ninja Turtles. I love their use of water-melon covers and melons are still exploding in our fruit shops due to over-use of growth hormones. Riding my bike I now turn up at places looking like a little swimming pool and the Wardorf hotel on the Bund is one of my favorite cool-places, to run around on these hot Shanghai nights…

How To Get a Natural Facelift

I had dinner with my friend Georgie (who owns Dragonfly in Shanghai) at the week-end. He is a spa expert and I asked him what he thought the best facial was for a face that needed a bit of help: mine! I  told him, “I exercise my body and it  keep my muscles in place, but what can I do to keep the muscles of my face in place too?” I told him, “I don’t want them to droop either.” He invited me to have one of his anti-aging facials at Dragonfly using a RF machine (radio frequency) and I have to tell you: IT WORKS!! Check out this picture below from this site. These are pictures before and after a woman had 6 months of  RF facial treatments.

I took the pictures of my face before and after 1 anti-aging facial at Dragonfly. The weird thing was how my face felt the next few days… I felt my cheeks had lifted and were firmly back in their original place!

This below is a picture of what the treatment at Dragonfly in Shanghai China costs. If for nothing else – it is a lovely  way to relax and having a woman massaging your face for 90 min.

A big thank you to Georgie for my new perty face and people who are reading this and do not live in China: find out what facials uses a RF machine at your local beauty therapist and get a natural facelift of your own.

What you will find in Fiji Taveuni

I always like going into supermarkets when I visit different countries to see what the quirky differences are. In Turkey they sell a lot of self-waxing kits. In the USA I found aisles filled with plastic slabs (the size of cushions) containing breakfast cereal ( often multicolored). In Fiji I found canned sheep and missionary workers.

What I saw in Shanghai this Week

What was in front of me when I had my feet massaged.

Below is a man who sweeps our streets. He makes his own brushes from the fallen branches of the trees.

My local coffee shop Baker ‘n’ Spice on Anfu Lu.

I was on my bike and  stopped to take this girl’s picture.

This was a sales assistant.

Laundry  hangs everywhere.

This was in my local paper. I liked their enthusiasm & lipstick.

I am now hooked on Instagram. You can find me there.

My Chinese Neighbors

I often think I live in a Chinese Coronation Street. My sweet gray-haired neighbor decided to perm and color her hair yesterday. This below is another groovy neighbor who lives on the other side of me.
