I'm in Shanghai!
Hello everybody~~~ I'm in Shanghai now, thanks for all of your kind words and emails for support :) Yesterday, i was still a bit figgity as I didn't know what to expect for my 1st day of work here. Ok, so much is happening - got to talk about the place first: it's really hot and humid; i didn't even have to wear a jacket and felt all sweaty today, this place is also crowded with bikes everywhere and the walkerbys, cars, bikes, scooters dun care about the traffic light at all so it's like a virtual J-walking city. I also saw a woman fly off a bike after a car crashed into her today... Oooo... have to be careful. Anyways, the hotel i'm staying at is beautiful with a super huge room and a nice nite view, the team also includes of nice guys and gals which i think will work well together. The cost here is dirt cheap - 1RMB(0.15CAD) for a softcone, and the locals told me they spend like 7RMB(1CAD) / meal. However, also met up with some managers today and my own mgr treated us to a expensive n-course dinner; funny how a small potato skin like me can "ark-yum, ark-sic"... lol, anyways; i'm gonna go shower and sleep soon... PS. did i mention that the girls here are pretty? (lots of ppl told me and warned me about them too... wonder why... ha ha ha)
