Happy Birthday Emma!

2016.  Emma turned 15 on the 15th :)

Wish lists : Food, Bakery, Shopping, Modern, Stationary, Cell phone, Camera.  We think we can do the first 5.  

Day plan : Walk around and explore Nanjing.  Eat freely.  A special focus on the modern shopping areas.

Good thing we are in Nanjing!  The day began with 'cheesecake', chocolate mousse and of course, pomelos.  We visited at least 10 bakeries, snacked throughout the day including fresh juice, rice rolls, pastries, mochi/sticky rice cakes (my personal favourite), milk teas (奶茶) and Alvin bought an entire chicken from the following market.

 Love the selection of veggies
