China Shanghai Food Pho

10 September 2012

Bike crash

This evening I went to where theres a lot of white people bars and restaurants, specifically for ex pats.
I just cant bring myself to go into them. The food looked nice enough, the Mexican place in particular looked good, but I dont really understand why they have to be exclusively for white people.
I didnt do much as I had been out all day in the sun, so enough bullshit text here.

I like pho. I asked for extra spicy and the chef did a decent job. They cook the rice noodles too long. My theory is that they take less time to cook than Chinese style noodles yet the chefs they employ are so used to cooking Chinese ones they can never get it right.
Either that or he left them on too long.

This is the area with the Pho restaurant. It also has Mcdonalds, KFC, Krispy Kreme, Carls Jr, Baskin Robbins, Starbucks, Costa, Marks and Spencer just to name a few. Basically its a conglomeration of things white people like.
Actually though, this is the Puxi side of Shanghai, the real ex pat side is the Pudong side, apparently. I have never been to where the housing is over there, just the big buildings in the business area.

And then I saw this strange bike crash. It seems the girl was sitting on the back and got something (I am not sure what) tangled in the bike.
It seems as though her top has come off, but who knows. She has / had nice hair anyway.
At first I was concerned but they both seemed to be laughing hysterically about it. A crowd had formed. A father was busy pointing through the railing showing his young son what was going on.
I snapped this sneaky photo. I felt like an ass because the focus assist beam lit them up in bright orange!
No one wears helmets on any kind of bicycle / scooter / motorcycle.
