Shanghai Expo Highlights (Part I)

The Shanghai Expo is like a big amusement park!

There are so many things to see. You need to spend a lot of time there to see everything.

You also need to queue up! I decided to go to those pavilions that didn’t have long queues.

I guess I made the right decision. I managed to get into the pavilions and I saw many cool things!

    Tonga used to be a British colony too.
    Actually, there were many British colonies in the Pacific Ocean, including Hawaii!

  15. To San,
    紐西蘭館,世界貿易中心協會館, 大平洋聯合館(包括多個大平
    洋群島的細展館)! 最後去了世博軸和各展館影夜景!
    紀念品和手信就好豐富, 除了PIX.31-33幾款小金幣外,

  16. To London Caller,
    Have many Pacific Islands very famous,
    like Samoa, Tonga, Solomon, Fiji,
    they are all nice places!

    I don't know that's Brazilian or Jamaican baby,
    but I'm sure the pic.5 is Canadian baby,
    I also took a picture of American and others babies!
    I will find out more Brazilian charateristic in your blog!

  17. Thanks uLi, I like those gold coins specially
    the one with the white jade, so beautiful!

    People are nice and have great handicrats!

  19. To Vialentino,
    Thanks for your comment even you're busy at the moment!

    Yes, was there extremely crowded with people,
    but it still was a great chance for me to
    visit Expo!

  20. Thanks Kay, 其實果度真係好多人又熱, 仲要大排長龍...
    只係難得中國攪世博, 點都要湊吓熱鬧! ^.^

  21. It must be a fun trip! Although it was quite hot as u mentioned, but i guess it was worth visiting ^-^

  22. Yes Ristinw, the trip was good! Specially I
    went to Nanjing Road and the Bund at night!

    Of course Expo was worth visiting,
    that's more the reason to go to Shanghai now!

  23. That's definitely a Brazilian baby because you can see the "globe" on the baby's right hand side. It's the same "globe" on Brazilian flag.
    You can go online to compare them now. :-)

    The necklace with the craved pendant is pretty.

  26. To London Caller,
    Oh! I can see the Brazilian flag now!
    Because the globe is on the corner of the baby stomach,
    I didn't see it clearly... I'm sure that's Brazilian baby now! Thanks! ^.^

  27. To Mei Teng,
    Yes, those Pacific pendants are really pretty,
    I like them very much!

  28. >I like that red little bug in the pix 14 & 15!

    That's actually a ladybird.
    It's very common here in England.

  29. Thanks for reply, I remember it now,
    chinese call 瓢蟲!
