Labor Day weekend

Ah, Labor Day - it's another public holiday in China, so no work or school for me today! 
This time of the year in China - always weird & busy times (welp, it's so far only the second time for me, but seems like we're developing a habit here).
So, fast forward to my Labor Day weekend in Beijing 2016, what's been happenin'?

I did actually go to Lantern to see Jarreau Vandal & Mr. Carmack. 
It was oh-so-lit. 
Can't even. 
The music was so good, man, what even.
Danced until 5 a.m. and got home just in time for sunrise.

During the Saturday I did a bit of essay writing & went out with Tautvile and some of her colleagues for some Mr. Shi's famous dumplings at the Gulou spot. A bit of Great Leap, a bit of Temple Bar, a bit of Dada - pretty much the usual route around Gulou, but always a fun time.

Now Sunday was exciting! Me and Tautvile met early (despite the second-day sleep deprivation catching up on me) and hit the Agricultural Exhibition Hall for the Art Beijing art fair. It was three massive pavilions of a bunch of beautiful things and cool design items. Lots of walking and exploring.

With the heat going up to +29 degrees & feeling mildly dehydrated, 'Holy water' gets a whole new meaning.

Iced coffee time of the year
Perfect crema situation here, the coffee aficionado in me experienced pure bliss

Just look at them!

THIS is the prettiest coffee siphon I'll probably never be able to ever afford, surrounded by crazy beautiful Chinese paper cutting. Just looking at this photo is like having a sneak peek into what paradise must look like.
