Went with Yang to visit Shanghai and bumped into a café with his name….
That night we met a few of his friends.
One of my ex-colleague, Vadjra (front left) showed up.
We then moved to the bar area, took up the entire bar bench.
Yang and Vaj.
The most awesome bartender.
Later we had Taiwanese foods with some of his Taiwanese friends.
Next morning I met up with Gavin, my first inspiration in simultaneous interpretation. Gavin used to work with me (where I translate and he interprets) back in my translation company days. He now free-lances for a living.

More delicacies back in Beijing. One of my coworkers used her birthday card for a cake.
Enjoy everyday, so the characters on the cake said.
