WELCOME TO SHANGHAIOkay, so first of all to any of you who speak chinese : please let me know if the title of this article is correct because damn, I don’t understand a word (or should I say symbol, thanks to Reverso I imagined myself being a chinese expert for a second). Note the effort over here though! I am so excited to share this new adventure with you guys, as it was our first time in China discovering the amazing city of Shanghai as well as this completely new culture.
I wanted to learn some new words as soon as I set my foot on chinese ground. So the first things I’ve been taught was obviously ”Nihau”, which means hi and ”Tchien Tchien” for thank you. It basically ended up at that stage… So I just had to use hand language for the rest of the trip, like any random tourist (ah, I feel so bad about myself). Because we were invited with Hugo Boss, we had the chance to stay in a lovely region where the hotel Andaz was located. On our arrival day, we took some time to explore the neighborhood and try out some local dishes. My dream came true : dim sum, but sweet version. For the day, I chose to wear a lovely Moschino dress as well as my new bag crush, this white Valentino I got from Monnier frères. Gotta be carefull as white gets dirty so quickly, but gosh it looks so good!
Great Post. Gave me a lot to think about. Nobody knows what happen tommorow so please be thankful on what you have. Plumber Pinky'shttp://www.blogger.com/profile/07130505590459145977

Hey Kristina, it´s ni hao and Xie Xie. The pronunciation can be really difficult. Anyway the dress looks really nice, I love the colour.
OMG beautiful dress! And yes you got the title correct (: good job! And dim sum is just the best isn't it?!
Wow, really so nice pics and dres. Have a great day.
Your dress is insanely gorgeous!! Not only because of the print, but the color is so nice and engaging, love it! :)) Hope you had a great time in Shanghai!

欢迎来到上海 implies that the person you're addressing (the reader) has arrived in Shanghai -- not that appropriate for the title either.
Sensational, I love this look. Your dress is nice and the heels are beautiful. Its one of your looks that I really adore :)

Just to comfort you, I'm chinese and yes! It's right!http://www.blogger.com/profile/00890546421708606419
Kristina you're GORGEOUS!!!!!111http://www.prowling-the-gr0unds.tumblr.com/
By the way ''hello'' it's: 你好 and the ping yin (ping yin is the phonetical transcription of the characters) it's: Nǐ hǎo and to say thank you, it's: 谢谢 and the ping yin is: ''Xie xie'' :Dhttp://www.prowling-the-gr0unds.tumblr.com/
Haha, and I wanted to tell you that when I want a traduction or maybe a dictionary I also use Reverso haha, I think it's a good site!
Wow! amazing dress....love it <3 www.enarastyle.blogspot.czhttp://www.enarastyle.blogspot.cz/
Such an amazing dress! Wonderful pictures!
I already know!! The first two characters of the photo mean: My .... and then I don't know. :) hahahahttp://www.prowling-the-gr0unds.tumblr.com/
Wow, it looks awesome, and I'm learning chinese right now, they're called characters, not symbols haha! That made me laugh, or at least in spanish we call them ''caracteres'' and, I can recognize some of them, some of them not, and I mean recognized as I've already studied, but not learned totally good yet. In the photo were the characters are, the first one means ''I'' and the second one it's familiar to me, but can't tell you what does that mean.
Talking about your photos, they all are so great!! I loved you hair and makeup, it looks like it's a very nice city!http://www.prowling-the-gr0unds.tumblr.com/

I wanna know the meaning now too. The dress fits you beautifully. The lenght, print and colour is gorgeous.
Miss Top Ten Image
Love it!! Your looks are always so exquisite and classy!! ;-)
The title is a little oddly stated. You can't really say "Welcome to Shanghai" in Chinese without implying the person you are talking to has physically arrived in Shanghai. You can however, say "From Shanghai, Welcome" which is 从上海欢迎你, or "Shanghai welcomes you" which is 上海欢迎你.
Also, to say 'thank you' there is no 'n' sound at the end. The transliteration is 'xie xie' and the 'x' makes a 'ts' sound.
you look stunning and I love the photos!
i think 欢迎来到上海 would be more accurate ;P
but its no huge difference...
访问is more like interview. 欢迎来上海 would mean welcome to shanghai! Not sure what you looking for tho! :x see you are enjoying great dim sum there! Enjoy your trip! And do come to Malaysia if you need a great tropical getaway! ;) Love from Malaysia!♥http://www.blogger.com/profile/05773200139681972217
"欢迎来到上海" Welcome to Shanghaihttp://lynnsipsmocha.com/
"欢迎访问上海" Welcome Interview Shanghai?
Good try though!
The title is correct if that's what you intended to say, it means "Welcome to Shanghai"http://www.blogger.com/profile/14882523452861451137
The photos are amazing. If it makes you feel any better, "hi" and "thank you" are the only words I know in Chinese too. (well, except for the words that are same in both Chinese and Korean since I'm learning Korean)
The dress looks wonderful on you. I love Moschino <3https://twitter.com/Maisweetlove_DA
Love this look!
There is a little mistake in the title. I think what you mean is visit shanghi. And the word is 拜訪 not 訪問. 訪問is interview.
Well, i'm not from China. I am from Taiwan. A small and beautiful country near China. Please come and visit.http://www.blogger.com/profile/03820182948532066926
Love this pics and dress are fabulous.

very nice pics! love your bag :)
Hi, Kayture. I'm such a huge Korean fan of yours. This is the 1st time to leave a comment, because you are very cute!
Yep, it's true. Chinese is very very difficult.
I agree. ;)
[ni hao] means 'hi', and [Xie xie] means 'thank you' I think 'Tchien Tchien' could be [tching tching]. This means, 'please'.
Anyway, You are absolutely gorgeous as you always been. :)https://www.facebook.com/mincho.park.1?ref=tn_tnmn
Love your Dress and Heels! Shanghai looks awesome!<3 http://celebritiesandfashionnews.blogspot.com/http://www.blogger.com/profile/04856307374148423858

Wow,you are in shanghai,we are so nearly!http://www.blogger.com/profile/07322375270090394693
Welcome !Have a good day!
Haha I think it's wrong because it basically translates to "Welcome Interview Shanghai". And thank you in Chinese is more xie xie than tchien tchien. But kudos for the effort!http://xdianachan.wordpress.com/
oh that dress!! I saw it on My-Wardrobe and absolutely loved it! xo, Almahttp://www.soulofashopper.com/
The more accurate one should be "欢迎来到上海”， meaning welcome to Shanghai ^^
gorgeous dress !
Loving the food pictures and glad you were able to pick up a new language while you were there! Love the dress!
Are you trying to say welcome to shanghai on the post title? If it is then it should be: 欢迎到上海 :)http://www.blogger.com/profile/17299766759347981108
And thank you is 'xie xie' 谢谢
darling.. let me be honest.. if I would have seen this dress in a store I would thought «What an ugly piece of cloth» but now that I see it on you I LOVE it! :D
Wow, that dress is really amazing! love the print.
