Shopping at SHAOO Paris with designer Wen Wei Tong in Shanghai and lunch at Shanghai Tang Cafe with Wen Wei and Bao

Dear Shaded Viewers,

On my last day in Shanghai I visited the jewel of a boutique, SHAOO Paris in Shanghai. Wen Wei Tong is the designer behind the accessory brand SHAOO and SHAOO SHADOW. I have been wearing her beautiful dark green jade ring for a few years now and it never leaves my hand. After a visit to the boutique Wen Wei Tong took me to lunch at Shanghai Tang Cafe where I tasted ‘money bags’ mushrooms wrapped in tofu skin, I thought if I ate a few I’d suddenly become rich. The food is excellent there by the way and the atmosphere was a dream.
