Today, it’s a national holiday: The Festival of Pure Brightness Qingmingjie, also known as Tomb sweeping day.
Chinese people worship their ancestors, visit their graves or simply have a nice day off and make trips to the country side.

in German: Das Totenfest Qingmingjie

Personal note: April 6 is the birthday of my ma , she died last year.

Another long Saturday…

Ralph, a Canadian living in China for a couple of years now and customer of Wilddesign happens to have his own bar. See review in CityWeekend for details.

He invited us over for a great night out in West Shanghai with drinks, karaoke (yes … Oli and me performed Love is allround…. oh well… 😉 ).
They had a band as well: Undercover.

Thanks for having us!
