3 dishes at my fave Sichuan resto = 60 kuai (and enough for 2 people).
One tub of ice cream = 55 kuai (and barely enough for one person!)
This has not been the most exciting wknd I have spent over here... early mornings + work + early nights. I think the two highlights of the wknd must have been my work outs (who still don't feel 100%... I ran for 40 min yesterday -after 30 min of cross trainer- and my legs and head felt heavy. Not good) as well as my Sat night splurge on a tub of ice cream. I call it a splurge because bloody hell, they sure know how to charge for western ice cream over here! Actually, when I sat in front of the TV and stuffing myself a bit later I came to think of how you can really blow your money in Shanghai/Suzhou when you shop for the 'wrong things'. After thinking about this for a while I made a promise to myself never to buy expensive ice-cream again. It just doesn't feel worth it when u think of what u can get for 60 kuai in Shangahi/Suzhou....
Oh, and since we are doing this, here's another thought:
Tights from H&M = 69 kuai.
Cute summer dress = 60 kuai.
No more H&M for me while living in China!!!
