Stop motion animation: Shanghai Auto Show

This is a short stop motion animation taken in front of the Volkswagon pavilion at the Shanghai Auto Show last week. A few less than obvious things to note from the clip:

  • The HD screen in the background was amazingly huge and clear.
  • There are models walking up and down the stage in front of the HD screen during this clip.
  • Volkswagon were promoting green cars while people visiting the pavilion were sweating under the spotlights.
  • I probably should have used a tripod.

The music in the clip is a Beijing band called New Pants. Check them out.

Homes Shanghainese Restaurant

Homes was the first Shanghainese restaurant I visited when arriving off the boat. After eating their delicious local food, especially the pork in brown sauce, I was hooked. The sad truth was that at the time I had no idea what side of the city I was in or where Homes was located.

By good fortune we accidently rediscovered Homes (right near where we live) on Julu Lu near Fumin Lu. The delicious pork was just as good as I remembered. Here’s a visual taste of what to expect:
