18 CITY TALES OF THE CITY BY LAUREN HOGAN SECURITY Always watching WINNING! It s a Shanghai life Damn it feels good to be an expat. A Shanghai expat, that is. In a survey taken by HSBC, China ranked yi hao out of 37 countries as the best place to be for foreigners living abroad. A map created by the Washington Post s Max Fisher also showed the Mainland as the best place for quality of life and employment opportunities for expatriates and yet another survey, conducted partially by China Daily, awarded Shanghai as the best of the best. As if we didn t already know. POOP Sh*t hits the... Seems the skies near the Pudong airport are a bit, shall we say, murkier than usual. Nearby residents have been complaining that airplane septic tanks have been leaking and, well, fertilizing the area. A man surnamed Zhou whose neighborhood and him was hit with showers, said what he originally thought to be rain had very strong ordure. STV reports also showed yellow droplets on parked cars. Talk about a load of crap we d prefer not to hear. CONDOM Balls of steel What s up? What is literally up?! Seems Pudong isn t the only place with unhygienic waste falling from its skies, as over in neighboring Zhejiang Province a used condom flung from a high-rise landed on the windshield of a Chevrolet Sedan and cracked it. Police came to the driver s assistance, whereupon they discovered the culprit safety bag. But without an expensive DNA test, there wasn t really much they could do. Not only did the poor fella receive some startling in-your-face action, he also had to cough up RMB1,000 for repairs. PYTHONS Get these motha'f'n snakes off the motha f n plane! On a flight arriving from Hong Kong, Shanghai customs officials unpacked out of a suitcase 121 endangered ball pythons, which had been individually wrapped into black silk stockings and then sorted into 21 plastic boxes. During the X-ray scan, the Chinese passenger transporting them tried to pass them off as rubber toys riggghttt. The phony tale turned into one slippery slope when security asked to see inside the man s luggage, whereupon he declared his little live friends to be pets. Lights! Camera! Camera! Camera! Camera! A whopping 55 cameras were placed on a small four-lane section of Youyi Lu (above), with an additional 20 more just across the way in an effort to monitor slowly moving cars? After enough media attention was directed to this overly-observant stretch of blacktop, the culprit Shanghai Baokang Electronics Company removed all of them. Turns out permission had never been granted to install the excessive cameras, which were being used to conduct tests for traffic monitoring. FAMILY Still the loneliest number? The One Child Policy is relaxing its rule to allow for two tikes per family. The policy, which was introduced in the late 1970s to control the growing population, will now only remain in place for a small proportion of the population urban Han parents who are both the product of twochild or more homes. For the first time in decades, China s approximately 930-million-person labor force shrank this year, and if a baby boom doesn t kick off, it s estimated it could decline as much as 10 million a year starting from December 2013 //


20 CITY DON T YOU KNOW WHO I AM? Robert De Niro THE BUZZ SNAP CITY This month s winner is... Jeremy Sun Edited by Ned Kelly and Lauren hogan ACCIDENTAL CHINESE HIPSTERS Blazing a trail Hollywood actor Robert De Niro has given the thumbs up to develop a property complex on Nanjing Lu near the Bund. Project 179 named after the municipally-designated blocks of land which is sexy will include a boutique hotel, retail space, a cinema and a performing arts center. The Academy Award-winner is collaborating with his son, Raphael De Niro, a well-established broker and developer in New York. They ll be to renovating four vacant buildings dating back to the 1920s and 30s and constructing a fifth to create the 850,000-square-meter hospitality center. I am looking forward to helping realize the Bund as one of the premier visitor destinations across the globe, said Bob. By ensuring a design that reflects the vibrant history of Shanghai, Project 179 can serve as a jewel in its crown: ushering in a bright future while paying homage to its rich and storied past. All of which is rather exciting now all we have to do is wait it out until 2016, when the complex is set to open. Send your pictures to with subject 'Snap City.' Winners receive a free lomography camera. 126 Jinxian Lu, by Maoming Nan Lu 进贤路 126 号, 近茂名南路 QUOTE ( When the environment is bad, sperm becomes ugly and even stops swimming. To find out whether an eco-system is stable or not, just examine the sperm. Bad news, boys our baby-making tadpoles are losing their will to wriggle, according to Li Zheng, a sperm expert at Renji Hospital. Only one-third of semen held at the city s main sperm bank meets World Health Organization (WHO) standards, with pollution singled out as the major culprit. The news comes as Shanghai was hit by a spate of toxic skies, with air quality index (AQI) readings around 250, see right. In these troubled times, the conscientious need to be aware of whose hands their money is falling into and what cause it could be used to support. Things aren t so extreme you got to give up green fever though Gramps has a solution. Not only that, but one look at his eyes and you know he has some mad horticultural skillz, yo! //For more hip hip hip visit accidentalchinesehipsters. RANDOM NUMBER 259 The high that Shanghai s Air Quality Index (AQI) hit last month, deemed very unhealthy by the US Consulate, who warn when it goes over 200, people with heart or lung disease, older adults and children should avoid all physical activity outdoors. Everyone else should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion. Perhaps most damning of all is that we were worse than Beijing most of the month. That s when you know things are bad 18 December 2013 //

21 THIS MONTH IN HISTORY One day in December December 22, 1968, and Chairman Mao directs the People s Daily to publish a piece entitled We too have two hands, let us not laze about in the city, quoting Mao as saying The intellectual youth must go to the country, and will be educated from living in rural poverty. It marked the start of the Up to the Mountains and Down to the Countryside Movement 上山下乡运动.' As early as 1953, the People s Daily had published the editorial Organize school graduates to participate in agricultural production labor. And in 1955, Mao Zedong asserted that the countryside is a vast expanse of heaven and earth where we can flourish, which would become the slogan for the Down to the Countryside Movement. The late 1960s policy differed from what preceded it in its political context, however. The first rustication movements were instituted to redistribute the excess urban population following the Great Leap Forward and Great Chinese Famine ( ). Mao now used the policy to rusticate the Red Guards who had risen up at his beck and call, throwing China into chaos. In 1966, under the influence of the Cultural Revolution, university entrance examinations had been suspended, and Mao now realized that a way was needed to assign the youth to working positions to quell unrest and remove the embarrassment of his early Revolution from sight. Millions of teenagers, who became known as the sentdown or rusticated youth, were forced out of the cities and exiled to remote areas of China. Commentators consider these people, many of whom missed out on the opportunity to attend university, China s lost generation. Following Mao s death in 1976, university entrance exams were reinstated, inspiring many to attempt to return to the cities. And on October 1, 1980 the party essentially ended the movement, officially allowing them to return to their homes. It is estimated that there were as many as 20 million sent-down youth over the years. December 2013 // 19

22 CITY around town NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH XUHUI RIVERSIDE WEST BUND BY LAUREN HOGAN Neighborhood Watch is a new monthly feature where we highlight a local area and discover its hidden secrets. First up: Xuhui Riverside Open Space aka Shanghai Corniche, an up-and-coming boardwalk excellent for strolls, sport and picnics. Don't forget your camera! The low down Originally an industrial area dotted with oil tanks for former Longhua Airport and, according to park patrol, part of Shanghai s oldest train route, this 8.5 km stretch by the river is being redeveloped as part of a reurbanization of the waterfront. Sit and stay awhile... A mere hop across the water from the main Expo site, Xuhui is now going green with low energy public transport systems and low energy and low carbon buildings planned. Developers are also revamping the natural ecology of the area through urban greening and attempts to re-establish wildlife habitats. Explore Joggers and dog walkers are welcome 20 December 2013 //

23 leashes are not enforced and sport enthusiasts will discover basketball hoops, skate ramps, an outdoor rock climbing wall and bicycles for rent. Fortunately there are benches to plop down on every 100 meters or so. Walk east for the ramps and rocks and a photo op with a steam train in front of its old station supposedly turning into a hotel in the future. East will take you over the double-decker Dragon Ridge Bridge cars on top, pedestrians and bikes on bottom (works well for a game of Pooh Sticks, the racing game with twigs named for that lovable yellow bear) and across the mouth of Longhua Port. Walk along this section of boardwalk, dotted with fruit trees and statues there s a fun copper clown who will take your photo until you eventually reach the oil tank area currently housing West Bund 2013: A Biennial of Architecture and Contemporary Art (see p22 for more). Just before you get here though, take a left past the Ceramic Pavilion near a bike rental location and walk up a little dirt hillside to discover a secluded green land, where locals meet regularly to lounge in hammocks, fly motorized kites and frolic in a clover-filled meadow. It s kind of like Narnia. Hungry? An ideal area for people-watching, bring your own eats or swing by Family Mart, located centrally on the boardwalk they ve got everything you ll need for an impromptu picnic, An up-and-coming boardwalk excellent for sport, strolls and picnics even ready-to-use cups filled with ice! Like gold on those hot summer days. If that doesn t suit, there s an Italian restaurant with patio seating on the waterfront, or pick up something at the Touch Mall located right outside the Metro. They offer grab-andgo options like Wagas and Starbucks as well as more sit-down spots like a Charlie Brownthemed restaurant. For the future Oriental DreamWorks is set to arrive in 2016 and, as the countdown continues, expect more cultural projects like art exhibits and museums to sprout up. There s been a recent increase in sporting groups like Heyrobics and bike polo rolling along the riverside, along with bands (props to Storm Electronic Music Festival) blasting their bass by the water s edge. How to get there A quick cycle ride from the former French Concession. If you re on foot, take Line 7 to Longhua (formerly Chuanchang) Road Station. From there it s a 10-minute walk heading southeast along Dong an Lu. Or tell your taxi: Longteng Dadao, by Dong an Lu 龙腾大道, 近东安路. You can also take Line 11 to Longyao Road Station if you want to start from the far end but fair warning, it ll be a long walk before you find any food. Rent a bike Bring your ID card/passport to Xuhui Binjiang public bicycle service station (Longteng Dadao, by Dong an Lu) where you ll be issued a card. There are three rental zones stationed around the riverside. Once you get your card you can return your bike at any of these three spots. Deposit: RMB300 (RMB100 will be topped up in card) Fees: Free for the first hour, RMB2/hour from the second hour. Time: 9am-5pm. December 2013 // 21

24 CITY BUILDING THE WATERFRONT CONTEMPORARY ART BIENNIAL ON THE WEST BUND BY TONGFEI ZHANG around town Drilling into the art scene Before Oriental DreamWorks floats into the West Bund in 2016, the flock of abandoned warehouses and oil tanks they ll use for offices and theaters is currently hosting the area s first-ever exhibition: West Bund 2013: A Biennial of Architecture and Contemporary Art. Running until December 19, the show aims to combine the four cultural phenomenas coming to this area: DreamWorks, a concert hall, new art museums and architecture. Hinged on two themes Reflecta and Fabrica the biennial showcases contemporary works, space construction through different displays of architecture and sound, video and performance art. Originally the site of a cement factory, a massive oil tank houses the central exhibition The show aims to combine the four cultural phenomenas coming to this area: DreamWorks, a concert hall, new art museums and architecture where an oil rig-turned-art-piece towers above more than 70 displays. Along with a retrospective review of Chinese architecture since the start of the 21st century, other highlights include Shanghai Odyssey, a look at 170 years of Shanghai as a port, and a ground timeline of the largest sound events in Chinese history. Outside the main hall are four smaller oil-turned-art tanks each with various interactive displays. Walk further up the Xuhui waterfront and discover separate outdoor sections of the Biennial. A Vertical Glass House by Zhang Yonghe allows visitors to climb through stories of see-through sections, while the Cloud Pavilion, designed by architect Schmidt Hammer, is compartmentalized into areas like a rope cage and a room with colorful plastic people on the run. For a full list of exhibits, artist info and the walking route, visit www. before you go. Interested? Just head over! For the indoor areas, you ll need a ticket, but they re free and can be picked up in the white tent outside the entrance gate. A shuttle bus runs every 40 minutes between 10am and 5pm with pick-up points outside Longyao Lu Station on Line 11 and outside the exhibit s main hall (timetable available in the ticket office). The bus travels along the riverside (Longteng Dadao) so you can enjoy the waterfront without having to walk the entire 8.5 km. At the time of visiting (early November), not all the buildings had been completed in the outside sector, but the construction workers didn t stop us from heading in to have a nose around. // 10am-5pm, closed Mondays Longteng Dadao 龙腾大道 2350 号 ( , www. 22 December 2013 //

25 technology ON THE GRID NEW APP GETS YOU CHARGED UP BY LAUREN HOGAN It s glorious outside the sun is shining, a breeze is blowing and you re cruising down Fuxing Xi Lu as though you were Maverick from Top Gun. Then, without any warning damn that second-hand motorbike with the useless speedometer your bike begins groaning and going all herky-jerky, turning in an instant from Dr. Jekyll to Mr. Hyde. Before you know it, you ve rolled to a dead stop and there s no yellow charge box in sight. Longtime Shanghai resident Rick Liston knows this all-outta-juice feeling well. Too many times I had found myself frantically searching the smaller alleys of the [former] French Concession for an elusive yellow box, says Liston. It s much harder to look cool on your faux Vespa when you re pushing it through the rain. For a year, the replicated moped owner kept tabs on places where he could juice up, thinking that one day someone would surely develop an app to direct helpless souls such as himself towards the nearest charging station, whereupon he would happily hand over his noted locations. Months passed and with still no hint of this scooter saving tool, his friend, fellow Australian Charlie Gale, gave him some sage advice: Grow a pair and do it yourself. And that was just the push he needed to do so. After first researching how to create an app, Liston and Gale have released Shanghai Grid, which It s much harder to look cool on your faux vespa when you re pushing it through the rain allows users to find the nearest yellow box via smartphone. Simple and straightforward, all you do is sign-on and locate the nearest red pin from your current position. Currently there are only about 60 stations listed, but if drivers know of more, all they need do is go to the home screen and text or in the address. The number of electric scooters on the road is growing daily, says the never-to-be-marooned-again inventor. With batteries having only enough charge for anywhere between km, sooner or later, you re going to be thankful you have this app in your pocket. Just don t forget to top up your cell before scooting off! //Shanghai Grid is currently only available for ios; coming soon for Android December 2013 // 23

26 cover story China Year in review The winners, losers, how, what, why and when SHANGHAI TOWER TOPS OUT Shanghai Tower in Lujiazui was topped out by architects Gensler in August at 632 meters high. Upon its completion next year, the RMB15 billion building will have 121 stories and be the tallest in China and the second-tallest in the world, surpassed only by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which stands at 828 meters. Photographer Nicky Almasy attended the ceremony, this shot showing quite how spectacular views from the top are and that being up there is not for the faint of heart! 24 December 2013 //

27 ALSO New on the horizon Watch out Shanghai Tower, over in Changsha a ground breaking ceremony took place in July on what would be the world s tallest building. The problem being that just three days later work halted on the RMB5.2 billion, 838 meter Sky City because of a lack of planning permission. D oh! Sticking with the scatological theme, a recentlycompleted 80-meter office tower in Beijing s Daxing district has earned the nickname Colon Tower because of its twisting, cylindrical shape. Which is a bit crappy. Set to be completed next year, The Gate to the East in Suzhou has already come under attack from critics who have compared it not to a famous Parisian war memorial (it was billed as China s answer to the Arc de Triomphe) but to a pair of giant trousers. Architectural triumph or just plain pants? Thanks to some poor planning and communication, authorities in Xi an accidentally built a brand new apartment block right in the middle of an eight-lane highway, which now has a nice short stretch of four lanes. The Sheraton Huzhou Hot Spring Resort opened this year. Overlooking Taihu Lake where the hairy crabs live it has opened up a vicious debate, with one camp insisting it looks like a donut, the other a toilet seat. And finally, the big one (fnar fnar), the new Beijing headquarters of the People s Daily, housed inside a giant penis. And as if literally building a giant erection over the skies of the nation s capital wasn t overcompensating enough, the building is going to be gold-plated. What would Dr. Freud say December 2013 // 25

28 cover story heroes MODEL WORKERS by RFH, Stephen George and ned kelly Zheng Yanliang Former corn farmer Zheng Yanliang became headline news earlier this winter, after he amputated his own leg using nothing more than a rusty saw and a blunt fruit knife. The 47-year-old, known locally as something of a hardman, had been suffering from a severe case of arterial thrombosis in both legs, and was told by local doctors that an infection had left him just one month to live. Unable to pay the exorbitant medical costs required to perform the lifesaving surgery and surviving on a diet of cheap ineffective painkillers, Zheng decided to take matters into his own hands. Biting down on a wooden back scratcher wrapped in a towel, he successfully cut off his own leg about 15 cm below the hip, bone and all. The operation saved his life. However, doctors now say Zheng will not be able to save his remaining foot and he needs an operation if he is not to lose the entire left leg. Surely time for us all to chip in. Yao Ming Shanghai s favorite son and China s biggest export (we re talking height-wise) says no to shark fin. What happens? Consumption of shark fin soup drops an estimated 50 to 70 percent. Sure, it wasn t just Yao, it was a concerted effort by a great many, but he was the figurehead who seemed to capture people s imagination. Stephanie Heizmann Auerbach There are those that would consider a woman traveling first class from New York to Shanghai with her two children becoming so disruptive after downing five glasses of wine that her flight had to be diverted to Alaska should reside on our villains list. But with double dipping economies and doomsayers declaring the end of the expat package is nigh, we beg to differ. Stephanie Heizmann Auerbach is one tai tai keeping the booze-swilling jet set life of entitled lunacy alive. Twisted nostalgic repect. Prof Chi Nan Fudan university science professor Chi Nan constructed her very own Li-Fi wireless router, enabling her to send and receive Internet data via ordinary LED lights at speeds equal or faster than regular Wi-Fi connections. While the technology is still in its early stages, Li-Fi could provide a cheap and easy-to-assemble alternative to using radio waves for wireless Internet access. Other scientists have also been researching the technology, but rather than develop specialized hardware, Professor Chi, an expert in optical fibers, used off-the-shelf bargain Taobao parts to create her unique system. The innovative product now looks set for the mass market, where it could revolutionize Internet access, especially in less developed and hard to reach areas. Yan Jun Judge Wang Guojun Here s one Wang who could teach Charles Xue a thing or two about defending oneself from accusations of solicitation. Wang was one of five senior Shanghai Higher People s Court judges caught on camera in the Diamond One VIP suite of a Pudong nightclub with five prostitutes. The men were filmed pairing off and entering separate rooms, only for the ladies to emerge alone an hour later. But Wang had a robust argument to prove his innocence: he was simply too drunk from the VIP suite to indulge in other services. All four were sacked and three expelled from the Party, but Wang was merely placed under a two-year probation. As Johnny Cochran would say: If he didn t hit it, you must acquit. Back in September Yan Jun, a Chinese student pursuing his PhD in Osaka, spotted a 9-year-old boy struggling in typhoon-hit Yodo River, and jumped in to save him. Overwhelmed by the fierce current, he retreated to the riverbank and ran 350 meters downstream before diving in again and pulling the boy ashore. I thought I should rescue him, modest Yan told reporters. I d do it again, if I ever face the same situation. He was awarded the Red Ribbon Medal of Honor by Emperor Akihito of Japan last month. Let s not call it any other way an act of bravery such as this, intensified by the backdrop of political tensions, speaks of all that is best about humanity. Lee Kai-fu News that former Google China chief and IT venture capitalist Lee Kai-fu had been diagnosed with cancer was met with an outpouring of grief online, where Internet users in their hundreds of thousands rushed to post messages of sympathy. However, as one of the country s most outspoken social media stars and influential tech figures, Lee is not without his detractors. Just days after the news was originally posted online, a 9,000 word article titled Ten Questions for Lee Kaifu, began circulating. The author of the article, Zhou Xiaoping, known for his rabid anti-western diatribes, attacked Lee, referring to him as a man of failure and questioning why the venerable 51-year-old was still able to update his Weibo account so often if he really was being treated for cancer. Despite the article s obvious prejudice, Weibo users rushed to read it, helping Ten Questions for Lee Kaifu, to become one of the site s most searched for terms. Courage in the face of adversity. McDonald s delivery guys Winter is coming. Next time you re gloating over that plan to spend it under a comforter with a box set of everything HBO, FX and Showtime have released in the last six months, spare a thought for the guy in the Playmobil helmet, color-coordinated leathers and scooter, who has to lug around a giant cooler on his bag like a tortoise just so you can eat Chicken McNuggets made with antifoaming agents at four in the morning, you selfish, snug, smug b*stard. Those guys are unsung heroes so why not give them a tip, next time? 26 December 2013 //

29 Stomach churns tough on the digestive system Grease lightning In a continuation of the disgusting gutter oil saga, we found out that not only are we buying oil made from old oil recovered from sewers remember that gross video showing how it s made? but there were also people making oil with leftover scraps from slaughterhouses. We re talking feathers, pig hair and other bits and bobs you wouldn t feed your dog. Sure, 16 people in Jiangsu were arrested, but we can t help feeling we re still in a slippery spot. Rat meat Those late night skewers we d always heard whispering about went from urban myth to rodent reality when the Ministry of Public Safety announced the capture of more than 900 people preparing more than 200,000 tons of rat, mink and fox meat treated with chemicals and red dye to go on the market as kebabs of lamb (and sometimes even beef). McDonald s delivery never seemed so justifiable. Fowl feet As if you needed a reason to avoid shrink-wrapped oddities, police intercepted more than 20 tons of chicken feet and other animal pieces in Nanning, smuggled over the border from surrounding countries. The oldest bag? Dated To make the talons whiter and more appetizing, they were soaked in hydrogen dioxide or bleaching powder. Over the past year, frontier police in Guangxi say they have cracked seven major smuggling cases involving chicken feet with a street (read: Lawson s) value of over RMB20 million. Bad buzz Police in Chongqing discovered some guys in the mountains busy as bees making 500 kilograms of honey that had never seen a comb. Containing exactly zero percent of the real deal, the fake replacement was found to contain 187 milligrams of aluminum residue per kilogram, which helped keep the sugar water congealed and viscous. Crackdown! Never eating again? We re finding it hard to stomach too. But don t lose your appetite entirely; there is some room for hope. All these food scandals have been causing serious issues for China s reputation, which the central government doesn t like one lick (or swallow). Back in May, the Supreme Court announced that the number of food safety cases it handled in 2012 had risen percent, with harsher sentences imposed all around. The State Council also announced an intensified crackdown on food-related violations and vowed to release them to the public in a transparent and timely manner. There may still be miles to go, but it s heartening that the wheels of law are in motion. ML December 2013 // 27

30 cover story MEME of the year Hey, it was the 80s... by rfh It was a time when mullets roamed the Earth, listening to New Romantics on Sony Walkmans. Coke was cool and Eddie Murphy was funny.

31 eccentric of the year Liu Chonghua Liu Chonghua is a man who wants to have his cake and his castles too. The millionaire, who made his fortune feeding China s growing appetite for baked goods, has spent more than RMB100 million on six ornate strongholds in southwestern municipality Chongqing. I don t have any hobbies, except for planting trees and building castles, Liu explains, standing proudly on a turret above the surrounding rice fields atop the largest of the six, which resembles Britain s Windsor Castle. His others include a red-brick fairy-tale edifice stacked with soaring spires, and a white confection with candycolored towers reminiscent of Neuschwanstein, the hilltop fantasy built by Bavaria s 19thcentury Mad King Ludwig II. When I was a child I heard stories about princes and castles, says Liu, 59, adding that he grew up with an empty stomach every day in China s countryside, and was sent to dig ditches during the political upheavals of the 1960s (see One day in December, p19). After making his fortune, he wanted to turn the castles of my dreams into something real. Constructing the castles is simple enough, according to one of his construction workers, former soldier Ma Wenneng. Actually, European castles are really easy to build, says Ma, tinkering with a fountain. The boss has a book of castle pictures in his office and we use that as a reference. His eccentric projects which are free for the public to visit and popular for wedding photos have led to run-ins with local officials, however; they once sent diggers to knock over a 16-meter-high castle gate ( That was my lowest moment ) and Liu has even received death threats ( I got anonymous calls from someone threatening to run me over with a car ). Liu will not be bowed though, and even seems to be answering President Xi Jinping s rallying call for this to be the decade of the Chinese Dream. China needs castles, because it needs a more pluralistic culture, he explains. A city needs people who have dreams, to help society develop.

32 cover story VILLAiNS THE RUNNING DOGS by RFH, Stephen George and ned kelly Jimmy Kimmel When Jimmy Kimmel asked a small child on his ABC show what should be done about US debt to China, and the boy suggested killing everyone in China, ol Jimmy had a chuckle and moved on. Yup, the idea of killing everyone in China is inherently ridiculous. For many Chinese people, however, the red mist descended. Since the show aired in October, more than 100,000 people have signed a petition asking for the White House to investigate the show, with protesters across America comparing Kimmel to Hitler, saying he must be fired and that we should set him on fire (probably). All of which seems a nice, level-headed response. Birds All of them. Would they stop trying to wipe out the human race with their avian flu? The government has killed 20,536 chickens, ducks, geese and pigeons in Shanghai alone after an outbreak of H7N9 back in April, fools, yet what is the latest news? A new strain of bird flu in Taiwan called H6N1 Brace yourselves. NASA Pig farmers How did more than 10,000 dead pigs end up in Shanghai s waterways? The answer goes back to an absolutely typical tale: three Chinese pig farmers running an illegal abattoir that specialized in butchering dead, sick pigs (sold at around RMB1/jin). The trio were arrested after they d sold some RMB8.65 million s worth of contaminated pork, and their death sentence shocked local villagers into staying away from the dead pig trade. However, with the local government offering next to zero facilities for disposing of these toxic corpses, the majority of pigs that died prematurely in Zhejiang ended up in the rivers, floating down to Shanghai. Well, at least they re not on the menu Racist restaurant owner When Boss Wang placed a sign banning The Japanese, the Philippines, the Vietnamese and dog [sic] from his restaurant in the capital, Beijing Snacks, he probably imagined his race-baiting marketing campaign would make the nationalist the toast of the neighborhood. Instead the news that Beijing Welcomes You unless you re from the South China Seas or four-legged went viral across the world, as uncomfortable comparisons to the apocryphal sign in Huangpu Park were made. Smog Once referred to euphemistically as Fog, China s omnipresent airborne nemesis floated onto the world stage in January with a faithful adaptation of the biblical epic, the Book of Revelation. Casting aside the doubters who claimed the country s air quality had improved since the Olympics in 2008, smog mounted a spectacular comeback, blanketing much of northern China in near total darkness and rendering the air almost entirely unbreathable. The frightening scenes were quickly dubbed an airpocalypse by the world s media, who moved to calm fears with headlines such as China s pollution linked to rapid rise in infertility. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has never been above politics devised as a means to combat the perceived threat arising from the former Soviet Union s satellite program, the space agency remained a central part of America s military industrial complex for much of the 20th century. Yet despite the agency s obvious bias, shock ensued this October when NASA banned Chinese scientists from attending a conference on grounds of national security. The decision, part of a broader move initiated by congressman Frank Wolf to counter espionage, has angered many US scientists, who have now decided to boycott all future NASA meetings in protest. Star Trek s dream of an ethnically mixed United Federation suddenly feels light years away. Wendi deng From pie-defying Tiger Wife to acrimonious divorce and rumours of an affair with an accused war criminal in two short years, Wendi Deng s fall from grace has been swift. Apparently ex-husband Rupert Murdoch has cut all ties with Tony Blair after his staff informed him of a number of overnight stays made by Blair at the marital home without his knowledge. We re not suggesting any impropriety, of course after all, how could anybody do such a thing to loveable, wrinkly old Uncle Rupes? Bats Not content with sucking the blood of helpless lone maidens in medieval Transylvanian hamlets, bats widened their centuries old reign of terror to include all of humanity. Earlier this year, scientists working across China, Australia and the US uncovered evidence linking the deadly SARS outbreak, which killed 774 people, to the common Chinese Horseshoe bat, yes, that same bat you heard screeching overhead last time you visited the Great Wall. Still think Bram Stoker made all that stuff up? The realization that bats have acquired advanced biochemical weapons has been met with alarm among vampire hunters sorry, the scientific community, who have urged people to avoid coming into close contact with the deadly winged species (and stock up on garlic). 30 December 2013 //

33 WATCHDOGS OF THE YEAR CCTV IS WATCHING YOU RONALD AND THE COLONEL CCTV lived up to their acronym this year. First up, reporters did a lab test on ice cubes from fast food giants KFC and McDonald s, as well as domestic chain Kungfu. They found they contained bacteria not merely far in excess of the national limit, but some even dirtier than toilet bowl water. KFC ice cubes were 20 times the limit, and 13 times higher than water samples taken from toilet bowls. Weibo went mental with the news, with 25,000 reposts. Reverse that old adage don t eat where you sh*t! APPLE CCTV exposed seemingly sacred cow Steve Job s lot of treating Chinese customers differently in its iphone and ipad repair policy on March 15, Consumer Rights Day. The People s Daily backed up their goggle box buddies with a series of stories criticizing what it said was Apple s arrogant attitude and double standards. Apple CEO Tim Cook was shamed into apologizing to Chinese customers, stating We are aware that due to insufficient communication, the public holds the idea that Apple is arrogant, disregards or pays little attention to the feedback of consumers. We have always respected China and Chinese consumers have always been our priority among priorities, He then denied the company was arrogant, yet the company adjusted its after-sales services to meet China s requirements. How humble. STARBUCKS Self-labeled luxury in coffee giant Starbucks was next in line in October, CCTV pointing out how much more expensive their coffee and mugs are in China than in other cities around the world. According to the report, a Latte (354 ml) costs RMB27 in China, while it is priced at RMB20, RMB24 in London and just RMB15 in Mumbai. However, consumers didn t seem to buy the call for justice this time. Why don t you save your energy and focus more on soaring house prices, the welfare system, food safety or air pollution? said one typical Weibo post. If people can t afford Starbucks, they can always go for Nestle. It s a free market, isn t it? Ironically, thanks to the criticism, Starbucks saw a 0.19 percent rise in stock value up to US$79.46, the highest figure in its history go figure!

34 cover story style icon of the year fashionable Peng Liyuan By Marianna Cerini President Xi Jinping may be the main man, but it was his glamorous wife, Peng Liyuan, who made the biggest splash this year with her stylish get-up. Standing alongside Xi during his various overseas visits and official appointments, Peng established herself as a global style icon from her very first official state visit, and has continued to make waves online and among fashion commentators every time she has stepped off a jet. No wonder Vanity Fair has recently included her in its famed International Best-Dressed List for 2013, alongside fashion icons such as Justin Timberlake and Victoria Beckham. Michelle Obama, on the other hand, was nowhere to be found on the list. Just sayin In Mexico, she was the personification of Tom Jones song She s a Lady. A light pink pleated skirt combined with nude court shoes and chocolate brown blazer was an outfit so flawlessly put together we kind of wish she d be our stylist. It all started in Russia last spring. On Xi Jinping s first state visit as President, a photo of the First Lady at Moscow Airport sporting a navy blue coat and a ladylike black leather bag by China s very own Guangzhou brand Exception de Mixmind was all it took to ignite Peng Liyuan mania. The image went viral on Weibo, and Exception became the focus of a global frenzy never before experienced by a Chinese brand. Peng favors smart suits and sensible totes. The outfit she chose to disembark a plane at Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania a crisp white skirt suit, coordinating handbag and peep-toe crocodile court shoes further fueled the hype around her fashion sense. Now if that ain t class, we don t know what is. Down in South Africa, she did it again. Sporting a chic and decidedly Chinese-infused ensemble, Peng charmed crowds with a delicate overcoat featuring printed Oriental motifs. The only accessory: a matching clutch. The lady knows how to style her looks. During Xi s Pan-American tour, Peng was ever the diplomatic star. She came, she saw and she conquered, wooing audiences with glamour just look at her drumming away in Trinidad and Tobago and continuing to cut a very distinct profile from her all-but-invisible predecessors (sorry, Mrs Hu Jintao). Graphic prints and monochromatic contrasts can be a tricky trend to pull off. Not for Peng. Arriving to greet Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic in Beijing last August, she looked as sharp as a stiletto, and much more like a fashion editor than a politician s wife. Was Peng about to take a selfie here? She sure should have, because that s cool chic like we ve rarely seen before. She seems totally ready for a Sunday funday. Looking stunning in a red print skirt and simple trimmed white collared blazer, here the glam style icon is in Jakarta. The First Lady effortlessly balances impact-making garments and statement accessories with practical pieces that busy women everywhere can relate to as everyday essentials. And that, in our books, is a total win. 32 December 2013 //

36 cover story A YEAR TO FORGET THE REST OF CHINESE SPORT by james griffiths Guangzhou Evergrande may have become the first Chinese team take Asia s top prize since 1990, but aside from that, 2013 was a year best forgotten with regard to sport in China Sun Yang s shame Olympic swimming champion Sun Yang was the toast of 2012, winning gold in both the 400 m and the 1,200 m freestyle. However, one year later Sun s star is definitely waning. In November he was caught driving without a license, resulting in a short prison term, fine and being booted off the Olympic team. Later that same month, it came out that he had been scammed by a woman he met online into giving her RMB20,000 for an urgent need. After transferring the money, Sun s e-girlfriend promptly cut off contact. Na, not this year Tennis superstar and That s favorite Li Na also had a rough year. Li crashed out of the US Open in the semi-final, was criticized by state media for her lack of patriotism (again), and was falsely accused by the New York Times of using steroids (after a reporter mistranslated a remark by Li about taking hormone medication to deal with menstrual issues). Basketball still a slam dunk NBA legends were all over the news in First Michael Jordan (known as Qiaodan in China) sued Qiaodan Sportswear for using his name without permission, then in August, Kobe Bryant came on one of his regular Chinese sojourns, during which he made noodles at a Shenzhen restaurant, and made viral gold on the street outside when a male fan, overcome with meeting his hero, sobbed his way into YouTube history. Shenhua sagas continue Shanghai Shenhua bookended their season with two ignominious events. Having lost both Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba at the start of the year, Shanghai s top football club was then docked six points and stripped of their 2003 Chinese Super League title in a matchfixing enquiry which also took down 33 officials. Eyeing a mid-table finish behind local rivals Shanghai Shenxin, club chairman Zhu Jun emerged with one of his now annual threats to move the team, this time to Kunming. Needless to say Zhu, who doesn t own a majority share in the club, will likely (and unfortunately) still be in Shanghai in Football, what a riot Another superstar visiting China this year was David Beckham, who took up an ambassadorial role with the Chinese Super League. At an event in Shanghai, over a thousand fans surged into a building to catch a glimpse of the Calvin Klein model, trampling at least five people who later required hospitalization. Oh, Becks also fell over. Despite Evergrande proving that Chinese teams can succeed at an international level, the Chinese men s national team continued to underperform, losing 5-1 to Thailand in Hefei. Fans were so incensed by the team s embarrassing performance that they threw bottles and rioted outside the stadium. Baddest Man Who is Chengguan? A tough man? I ve never heard it. And with those words, ear-eater and former World Champ Mike Tyson announced his arrival on Weibo, confused by responses to his opening query on the social media site: Who is the best fighter in China? With the question of whether he could duff up the urban management enforcers still lingering in the air, Mad Mike actually made an appearance in Beijing, hawking a cold and flu prevention supplement called Quike. I don t box anyone no more, he told a packed press conference, before adding ominously, But I can kill anyone. So glad you could join us, Mr. Tyson 34 December 2013 //

37 A RESULT TO REMEMBER GUANGZHOU EVERGRANDE Last month saw Guangzhou Evergrande crowned champions of Asia, banishing two decades of misery for Middle Kingdom football fans by becoming the first Chinese team to be crowned Champions of Asia since lookalike Dejan Damjanovic, and he capitalized on sloppy defending to level the tie with his second goal of the final. Three agonizing minutes of stoppage time left fans counting down the seconds before the final whistle signaled the start of the party. The second leg in their Tianhe Stadium home saw the match goalless at half-time, a result that would be good enough for victory on the away goals rule after a 2-2 draw against FC Seoul in Korea. But the game was on a knife edge and there was no room for complacency. Then, early in the second half, Brazilian Elkeson, the goal-scoring sensation of the season, expertly latched on to a through ball and finished with aplomb to spark wild scenes of celebration across the whole country. Even super cool, super suave Marcello Lippi went crazy, knowing he was one step closer to completing the remarkable hat trick of wining the UEFA Champions League, World Cup and AFC Champions League. But Lippi himself had highlighted the threat of the Ibrahimovic As in 2006, when Lippi led Italy to the World Cup, he was tossed in the air and showered in champagne by his players. And when skipper Zheng Zie lifted the trophy, he did so in the knowledge that they would be back in action on the global stage he and Lippi will be leading his men to Morocco for the FIFA Club World Cup. On December 14 they take on eight-time African champions Al Ahly from Egypt, with the winners facing German giants Bayern Munich in the semi-final three days later. Matt Horn December 2013 // 35

38 A ND FINA LLY SHANGHAI S TEN LEAST INFLUENTIAL PEOPLE 2013 cover story BY RFH, Stephen George, Will Philipps and Anthony Tao Cui Hua, 56, Balloon Seller Kong Ergou, 36, Bicycle Thief If you ve ever had a bike stolen in Shanghai, chances are it was swiped by Kong. I ve been stealing people s sole mode of transportation since I was 16, Kong admits with a touch of pride. I had a choice: Do something meaningful with my life or become a low-level parasite I think I made the right decision. Not that Kong s lifestyle choice has been easy; he s been insulted and beaten at regular intervals, but sadly never skull-f*cked. The job s not as fun as it used to be, Kong shrugs. There s no longer the same little kick I used to get from ruining someone s day in order to afford myself a pathetic sum of monetary reward. And he fears for the future of his job. The whole scene s changing: road bikes, mountain bikes, five speeds, fixies the other day, I stole some foreign twat s ride and it didn t even have any brakes. What can you do? I had to sell it to some scruffy Frenchman for forty kuai. Cui can still remember when she first came up with the idea of selling drunk people balloons for a living. I was on my own, high as a Marxist, when I realized I didn t have any balloons. That s when I realized what do drunk people need? Balloons! Cui visited a balloon shop that very day and invested her son s college fund in 1,000 differently colored balloons. And I still have about half left, three years later! laughs Cui, who has no idea what her real name is. Every night, she joins her husband a foul-tempered monkey trainer and pounds the streets of the former French Concession, accosting strangers to buy her wares. I ve thought of selling other stuff, she smiles. Cigarettes, lighters, rape alarms but, at the end of the day, it s always been about the balloons. This business of ours it s recession proof. Night or day, drunk or sober, people will always want balloons. And oversized stuffed toys. Earl Cooter, 29, English Teacher Most foreigners who move to China usually get a lucky break after a few months that allows them to pursue their Chinese Dream. Not so Earl Cooter. The former student came to Shanghai in 2006 to teach English and see what would come up amazingly, seven years later, he s still teaching English. You d think I d be bitter, but I m not. I m really not, Earl says, bitterly. Despite being no less drunk or untalented than his fellow faculty members, Cooter is the only foreigner among them to have not caught even a single lucky break. Through clenched teeth, Earl lists former peers an Alabaman half-wit, a Nigerian goat-snatcher who once worked alongside him at the No. 4 Shanghai Agricultural Kindergarten, before moving on to bigger and better things. Bobby Lee is now married to the fourth-richest woman in China, and Makepeace has a thriving goat s head restaurant in Songjiang, he says, shaking his head in disbelief. Know what I have? Goddamn class on a Saturday morning. Gus Diamond, 34, Doomed Entrepreneur Hearing Gus s latest idea an Ethiopian concept restaurant called Hobo s, with homeless people as interns friends usually elect to nod and smile. When they get lost three months later, looking for the Hobo s opening party in a deserted Hongkou shopping mall, everyone knows it s only a matter of time before the latest disaster befalls his train-wreck of a business plan. I was born to be a businessman, claims Gus, as he collects another rent check from his long-suffering father. I just don t know what business! Judging from previous experience, though, one can rule out catering, education, the media, accountancy, consultancy, microbrewing and pretty much everything else. Yet when it comes to astonishing fellow expats with a combination of staggering incompetence and continued solvency, Gus is in a league of his own. Li Jinying, 37, Travel Agent Li never says what s on his mind. In other words, he s the perfect salesman. Just tell him what you want, and he ll arrange a getaway package to Jiuzhaigou at the peak of National Holiday, with the prospect of air rage fights and taking photos through the viewfinders of other photographers. Don t want to visit the Miao Historic Minority Village in Guizhou, by the Baishui River, which has flowed through its geography for many generations? Tough you re going! Customers say the company s arrangements are reasonable and feedback is positive, argues Li. The company is very carefully plan your stay and think of the pleasure and enjoyment as No. 1. Henan welcome your cooperate in the future! 36 December 2013 //

39 Zhao Shamate, 23, Hairdresser Most young boys dream of one day growing up to become an NBA player, astronaut or scientist. But Zhao Shamate s lifelong dream has only ever been to work people s hair into irritating quiffs and pointlessly coiffured fringes all while listening to K-pop with a vaguely disinterested expression. I had to put in years of hard ponce to get where I am now, Zhao, whose English name is Smart, tells us, twirling a comb through his boney fingers. If I put a foot wrong my boss used to punish me by dying my hair black. I was only allowed to eat offcuts, but I used to secretly collect the hair sweepings at lunchtime and create wigs for my mother, who I never met. She ran away at birth. Now a fully-fledged junior hairdresser, Zhao says it s about more than just cutting people s follicles. I just feel this deep, special kinship with my fellow hairdressers, he says wistfully. People stare at us the whole time. I suppose they must think we look so cool. Xiao Dong, 17, Security Guard As the illegitimate second child of a Shanxi glass-blower, Xiao Dong spent his formative years hiding from local family-planning officials. Shunted between elderly relatives and kindly aunties, Xiao was never formally registered. It s hard getting work when you don t exist, at least not officially, points out the plucky 17-year-old. Luckily, Xiao found employment as an itinerant bao an (security guard). I ve traveled the world. Shanxi, Hubei, you name it, brags Xiao, who makes RMB1,000 a month sitting at a desk in a pair of ill-fitting blue pants with a walkie-talkie and a copy of yesterday s People s Daily. Shanghai is just such an exciting city right now. I feel like anything is possible. Maybe even pants that fit who knows? Mike Herbert-Strang, 31, Editor, hat s Shanghai Mike Herbert-Strang likes to downplay his significance. People will say I m a pretty ordinary guy, really I ve often heard the word talentless used, Herbert-Strang laughs modestly. And if you think getting exclusive interviews with millinery specialists is ordinary, then, yes I m ordinary. Herbert-Strang, originally from a godforsaken mining village north of the Humber, arrived in Shanghai nine years ago and swiftly ascended to the role of Flat Cap Editor at Shanghai s fourth most-read English-language hat magazine. It s about having vision, Mike explains. It s about combining nightlife listings and tips on giving your baseball cap a new lease of life into a 80-page full-color magazine. It s about capturing the local headwear zeitgeist. Last year was all tricorns and beanies. This year, it s definitely the pompadour s turn. I can make or break a struggling hat business. It s that simple one bad review, that s all it would take, in theory, to pack their hats. Does the New York Times have that kind of power? No. Well, yes. But less so in Shanghai, which as we all know is the new New York Tang Geiqian, 53, Beggar Spare a thought for Tang Yishan. While most of us could manage one hour one and a half, tops on the Shanghai subway, it s where Tang spends upwards of 19 hours a day, persuading commuters to give their loose change to feed himself, his wife and 37-year-old son. I lost my sense of smell in a freak accident at a baijiu bottling factory two years ago, and haven t been willing to work since then I frittered away my entire compensation on iphone covers, Tang confesses. But since then it s been all uphill. I might not be able to inhale erguotou again, but on a good day I can make upwards of RMB300. Tang is saving for an apartment in Pudong and hopes to one day send his son to an international school. Olive Zhang, 24, Office Drone The idea of a four-hour daily commute to work involving crowded buses, multiple subway lines and a long walk might seem too much for some but for Olive Zhang, it s all in a day s work. I like to use the time to think about how I can achieve my goals, and make good use of my education and training, says the Chengdu University graduate. It is important to remain positive and strong. Although I don t have the right connections, looks or family background, I hope that one day the leaders will reward my hard work and diligence, she says of her RMB2,600-a-month job at the Lixingdi Technology Export. Co., Ltd, where a typical 12-hour work day might consist of shopping on Taobao, talking on QQ, playing Tang Dynasty Super Dragon Quest and filling in spreadsheets within a last-minute two-hour deadline. Several of my roommates are struggling to find any kind of stable work at all, so I consider myself fortunate to have this great opportunity and in our financial capital as well! Zhang gushes happily. Also, I am pretty sure the boss wants to f*ck me. December 2013 // 37

48 life&style fashion Arrivals What s new on the scene By Marianna Cerini Ted Baker If you re after some dapper fashion creds this season, Ted Baker is your brand. The label s winter 2013 collection is a neat display of prim and proper for both ladies and gentlemen, with some of the best high-street contemporary tailoring around. Paying tribute to the infinite cool of the 1930s, womenswear (RMB519-12,499) is awash with nostalgia and old-fashioned glamour and comes in a palette of soft nudes and natural hues juxtaposed with vivid reds, floral and prints. Classic yet thoroughly modern, it features luxurious knitwear, clean silhouettes and full-bodied lines. Men s clothing (RMB379-8,699) is dapper and debonair, urban yet urbane. Mustards and muted teals sit elegantly alongside dark reds and purples, while Art Deco inspired jackets, smart trousers, tailored blazers and heavy woolen fabrics lend a sophisticated, gentrified feel to the entire range. TFZ // B1, 1515 Nanjing Xi Lu, by Changde Lu 南京西路 1515 号嘉里中心 B1 层, 近常德路 Mothercare With 52 years of history, UK retailer Mothercare is the ultimate pro when it comes to baby goods and maternity wear. The company which already counts 55 shops across China has recently opened its first flagship store in Shanghai, making the search for quality children s clothes a whole lot easier. Bright and airy, the 500-square-meter space is divided into sections covering pretty much every aspect of motherhood from pregnancy to school time spanning newborn, toddlers and maternity clothing as well as accessories, prams and toys. Starting from RMB200 up to RMB1,000, the latest kids 2013 fall/winter collection is a delightful assortment of playful outfits in eye-popping hues that draw inspiration from the circus and the far-away wonderlands. We particularly like the animalinspired onesies. Pity they don t come in adult sizes.

So it s with a very merry heart that we welcome the arrival of Torula bags in China. First launched in 2008 as a small weekend project on London s Portobello Market by selftaught Anglo-French designer Emeline Coates, over the span of only a few years the venture has turned into a thriving fashion label offering luxurious bags for everyday use. Churning out ultrachic purses and retro-inspired messengers all delicately crafted in Istanbul Coates has perfected the art of the classic handbag. Each model named after a London neighborhood or street like Chinatown, Columbia Road, Hyde Park and Bond Street is a lavish treat of soft leather and deep, warm colors that make transitioning from day to night a total cinch. RMB1,048-1,887. // Regalo + Eco Shop Regalo and Eco Shop are two ventures sharing the same closet-sized space on Anfu Lu.

A cluster of colored stone rings (RMB258) and hip round sunglasses (RMB128) were some of our favorite pieces, though we also fell hard for a selection of Somos Design s tarpaulin bags (RMB ). In the other half of the store, Eco Shop showcases natural skincare products, candles and oils (RMB45-150) made by proprietor Jason with fresh base ingredients that smell divine a whiff of an orange and cinnamon soap (RMB45) proved so good we almost ate the bar.

49 Style Butler Scandinavian chic is having a moment. Known for turning functionality into a crucial element of cool, an increasing number of labels coming out of Sweden, Denmark and Norway have been getting serious fashion recognition lately and are becoming highly sought-after by style-savvies on both sides of the ocean. Hailing from Copenhagen, Style Butler is one such brand. Launched in 2004 by designer Dane Pernille Leschly Halle, the fashion house pairs laidback designs with quality fabrics, working with plush materials like cashmere, fur and silk to create luxuriously feminine looks that don t compromise on comfort. Standouts in their newly opened Anfu Lu store include silk rib camisoles and delicate blouses (RMB ) in a palette of wintery hues, as well as fluid, flowy silk shirts (RMB1,199-1,999). Every piece is infinitely versatile and figure-flattering, with sharply tailored separates that can seamlessly integrate into any woman s wardrobe. // 163 Anfu Lu, by Wulumuqi Zhong Lu 安福路 271 号, 近乌鲁木齐中路 ( , Markise Entrepreneur Dov Koskas moved to Shanghai seven years ago, and brought along plenty of creative ideas and an eye firmly set on China s fashion consumers and their ever-changing taste.

51 The Yin and yang of Vera Wang Bridal Wear designer talks tough By Marianna Cerini S he may be the most prominent bridal-wear designer in the world, but don t ever call Vera Wang girly. In Shanghai in October to close this year s Fashion Week, the doyenne of wedding couture shows up to our meeting in the swanky Shanghai Science Hall JE decked head to toe in black unexpected from the queen of white dresses with leather leggings and towering ankle boots that give off a slightly Goth air. I just put on whatever, the 64- year-old says as she flings off her tiny gray shrug and folds her pixie-like frame into a chair. I love t-shirts and leggings. They re my uniform. The powerhouse entrepreneur seems convinced that her favored masculine, tomboy aesthetic and offbeat attitude has helped turn what began as a single bridal boutique in 1990 into a fashion and lifestyle empire with an overall retail value of more than US$1 billion. I think it s why I can do bridal and evening so well, she says. Because I am not bridal and evening myself. My private style is more abstract and conceptual than what you see in my bridal stores. Maison Martin Margiela, Rick Owens, Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons these are the designers I wear and love the most. Since starting her label, Wang s designs have unmistakably stood out from the generally conservative genre, marking a new, revolutionary chapter for the wedding-wear industry. Wang has essentially redefined the limits of what a wedding dress can look like, making a name for herself with designs that are whimsical and feminine without feeling saccharine. I try to bring edginess to a traditional business, she says. And boy, does she push the envelope: few other designers can make a black bridal gown look covetable, as Wang did in her fall 2012 collection. But it is clear Wang has other aspirations. Over the last decade, she has taken steps to expand her creative realm beyond a dress that is worn once in a lifetime, then preserved eternally in plastic. Working to cover every aspect of a woman s closet, she launched an urban, hip readyto-wear line in 2000 that s a far cry from the matrimony march. She followed that up with a diffusion line called Simply Vera in She has also made forays into homeware with china, crystal and bedding, as well as launched jewelry, shoes and cosmetics lines at price points that stretch from luxury to mass market. Born in New York City to wealthy immigrants from Shanghai, Wang attributes her business acumen to her father, a successful entrepreneur in the pharmaceutical industry. I think my dad s sense for business and capacity to grow his own fortune Vera Wang's Shanghai flaghip I grew up being exposed to the greatest designs, but also, as a Chinese-American, to a world of grace, subtlety and mystery that came from within my own roots have influenced me to always look forward and beyond, she says. It was him who first convinced me, aged 40, to start my own brand. He was my first and only investor at the time, and he certainly taught me a lot in terms of grasping as many opportunities as you can in life. However it was her mother, a translator for the United Nations and worldly clothes enthusiast who regularly shopped the couture shows in Paris, who introduced Wang to fashion. I grew up exposed to the greatest designs, but also, as a Chinese- American, to a world of grace, subtlety and mystery that came from within my own roots, she recounts. That really educated me to develop a love for fashion with a capital f. It s not just about the clothes. It s the beauty behind them, the meaning they carry. A competitive figure skater in school she tried but failed to make the 1968 US Olympic team the designer also owes much of her aesthetic and career success to the icy discipline. When I didn t make it as a competitive skater, I decided to turn to fashion, she says. And once I began designing, figure skating became a huge inspiration for me. In my bridal wear, I try replicating the lines, the theatricality, the movements you get in a skater s outfit. I am still a huge fan of the sport and I m so proud of China s excellent team. I absolutely love watching Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo [China s Olympic and worldchampion figure-skating couple]. I d like to design their costumes one day. After a stint at Yves Saint Laurent, she was scouted by American Vogue and rose to become one of the magazine s youngest ever fashion editors at the age of 23. I learned a great deal at Vogue, she says. I got to work with some of the greatest photographers that ever lived it s kind of insane really when I think back on it. She stayed for 15 years, harboring the dream of becoming a designer in her own right and, in 1987, joined Ralph Lauren. Two years later, while planning her wedding to computer executive Arthur Becker (from whom she is now separated) and looking for a dress appropriate to a late bride, she noted a void in the bridal industry and decided to fill it. In 1990, a year after her own nuptials, she opened her own boutique. The rest is history. Endless celebrities started wearing Vera Wang for their big day, from Jennifer Lopez and Mariah Carey to Alicia Keys and Chelsea Clinton. Her red carpet December 2013 // 49

53 feature wear, launched in 1993, has proved equally successful. But it s my ready-to-wear that really expresses my creative vision, she s keen to point out. Bridal and red carpet are all about the girl, about making the client feel herself whatever the circumstances. My commercial collections, on the other hand, are purely about me. At the finale of Shanghai Fashion Week, Wang showed both aspects of her fashion range. Not one, but three collections fall 2013 ready-to-wear, spring 2014 ready-to-wear and fall 2014 bridal were presented to hundreds of celebrities and fashion insiders during the ultra-exclusive event held in Xintiandi s Taiping Park. The Chinese media, as always, gave rave reviews and not just because of her genuinely captivating designs. Wang s Chinese roots have made her an instant fan favorite in Mainland China, where she resonates with the general public like few other designers do. When she traveled to Shanghai in 2006 to receive the China Fashion Award (CFA) as International Fashion Designer of the Year, she became the first Chinese-American designer to be globally recognized. Her work soon turned into a symbol of fashion pride for a country that hadn t experienced much cred in the industry and also triggered an outpouring of admiration towards the designer for making it in America. The all-black interior of Wang's Shanghai boutique sets the tone for her edgy bridal couture This is Wang s first time back since the accolade. In the meantime she has made Asia with China in particular the main focus of her expanding empire. In 2012, she presented her first Asian show in Shanghai during Shanghai Fashion Week, although she could not be there in person to see the tremendous impact her pieces had. Last March, she opened her largest flagship store worldwide in Xintiandi, a news that sparked some controversy and rightfully hurt quite a few of her local followers pride when the boutique announced a RMB3,000 try-on fee. According to a company statement, the policy aimed at protecting the copyright of the designer in a country famed for knockoffs. To many though, the surcharge only applied in China appeared highly prejudiced. Realizing the PR faux pas, Wang has since abolished the fee. Wealthy brides-to-be, on their part, seem to have remained loyal to the bridal sovereign regardless: the sales team at the Shanghai store assures us that the shop is as busy as it could be and plans for further growth within China are, allegedly, afoot. It s has been a very good time for us to come to China, says Wang. And of course, being Chinese-American, I am thrilled to be here. Wo hen gaoxing, she continues in broken Chinese. I have learned so much from the culture, from the work ethic. And I love the cities: Beijing reminds me of Washington, Shanghai of New York. Shenzhen is this impressive sourcing hub everyone in the industry goes to for work. It s a vibrant country and I wish I could know it better, she pauses. I think if I could live here for just six months, so much would come back to me. And, as she starts conversing in Chinese with her local publicists, we can see that too. December 2013 // 51

54 life&style travel Island allure Devouring Hong Kong in 72 hours BY Monica Liau For more travel deals, turn to p95 Deep in the shadows of Hong Kong s 8,000 skyscrapers and highrises, tradition lives nose to nose with the neon lights of Asia s financial capital. A doorway for the world s interlopers since 1842, this society manages to exude a glitzy international aura while remaining clannishly dedicated to insular customs creating a string of cultural bubbles that mingle, but rarely merge. Delectable eats... Clockwise from left: Kau Kee beef briskets, snake soup from Ser Wong Fun, Tim Ho Wan pork buns and fried chicken from Yardbird In matters of the stomach, however, cultural divides begin to fade. Zealots when it comes to culinary pursuit, Hong Kongers Chinese and expat alike live by the code of good food at any cost. This means they will happily squat on a stool, go elbow to elbow, pay exorbitant fees for exotic meats and dine with the most hipster of hipsters, as long as nosh is top notch. Using the Central area a womb for financial suits blowing off steam and rambling tourists with oversized Nikons as a jumping-off point during a long weekend (or visa run), one can find a rich mix of tantalizing eats within easy reach. Steps from the escalators, Graham Street Market clocking in as the oldest open air bazaar in Hong Kong at 176 years old is worthy of a morning gander. Marvel as stooped seniors weighed down with bok choy and char sui trundle up the steep hills at a captain s clip Grab a street-side breakfast of sweet, bitter milk tea and wontons at the dumpling stand; each delicate package of pork and shrimp swimming in fragrant, unbearably-concentrated seafood broth. Watch residents engage in that long standing practice of poking at pork and bargaining for vegetables. Marvel as stooped seniors, weighed down with bok choy and char sui, then trundle up the steep hills at a captain s clip. Soak in this slice of life while you still can. Due to zoning regulations, it looks like this tight-knit community might be kicked out by the end of 2014, replaced by yet another new, asyet-undefined development. Moving towards Gough Street, Kau Kee Restaurant is a stop for any foodie worth their salt. Boasting a history of more than 100 years, the spot has a group of loyal followers (meaning lines) hungry for luscious brisket. You ll experience harsh lighting, painfully brusque service and, most likely, a seat at a table full of strangers. But all eaters become brothers when those slices of beef cooked for more than 10 hours, ribbed with fat, aggressively meaty and fall-apart tender are thrown in front of you, swimming in brawny beef stock or arranged in generous slices over a tangle of fresh, yellow e-fu egg noodles and a dollop of homemade oyster sauce. For time-honored and careful Cantonese fare, grab dinner at 125-year-old Ser Wong Fun on Cochrane Street, which specializes in snake soup: incredibly potent and used to chase away chills in the bone. Even if you re not interested in reptile ingestion, they have great local delicacies like robust, inky-black blood sausages cured with anise and cinnamon, and claypots served bubbling with fish and tofu.

We asked him to reflect on his busy year. What inspired your new EP? Nahash is supposed to make people feel a bit uncomfortable. It s my way of venting. It was inspired by someone passing away in my family and, in large part, by the stupid things you read on Facebook.

60 arts lead The Ballad of Kusama Yayoi What makes the polka dot queen of avant-garde tick? BY Andrew Chin and Zoey Zha Despite voluntarily living at the Seiwa Hospital for the Mentally Ill in Tokyo since 1977, influential Japanese artist Kusama Yayoi has seen her stock go way up recently. In the last five years, the 85- year-old has collaborated with everyone from Marc Jacobs to the London Underground, sales of her works are setting auction records and people are packing into major retrospectives of her career around the world. Now, the first major exbibit of her work to come to China opens at MoCa Shanghai on December 15, the only Mainland stop on the two-year A Dream I Dreamed world tour and a rare opportunity to delve into the world of a true artistic original. Kusama Yayoi s childhood was unhappy abusive mother, suicidal thoughts and frequent hallucinations that bled into her work. Born on March 22, 1929 in Nagano into a prosperous conservative family, she began to paint her iconic polka dots and nets into watercolor, pastel and oil paintings when she was ten years old. Art is everything for me. Without art, there is no way I would have had connection with society, she says matter-of-factly. Every moment in every day, I ve lived for creation. I hate the thought of my power of art becoming weaker. I have kept my spirits high to present my art with never-ending desire for creation. She followed her muse at an early age, dropping out of the prestigious Kyoto Municipal School of Arts and Craft s Nihonga painting program to host solo exhibitions in Tokyo. An early correspondence with modernist painter Georgia O Keefe convinced her to move to New York. By 1958, she had settled into a New York City apartment, exhibiting with pop-art pioneers Andy Warhol and Claes Oldenburg, working in the same studio as sculptur Eva Hesse, dating influential artist Joseph Cornell and selling her first Infinity Net painting to minimalist sculptor Donald Judd for US$200 the 1959 piece No. 2 sold for US$5.1 million at a 2008 Christie s auction, the then record sale of a living female artist s work. I'm so happy the art I created inspired artists like Andy Warhol. Repetition, minimalism and magnification these are my concepts The 1960s saw Kusama develop her original style. Her first gallerysized installation Aggregation: One Thousand Boats Show opened in 1963 at the Gertrude Stein Gallery wowing attendees, including Warhol. She continued with her infinity net paintings while dabbling in sculpture and creating infinity mirror rooms. Her 1968 film Kusama s Self-Obliteration won prizes at film festivals and she also dabbled in fashion. Her style is very, very unique, notes A Dream I Dreamed, curator Kim Sun-hee. She created her own art world and that s why she s great. Her work hasn t changed that much. In a way she has repeated her style but is expanding her artwork bigger whether through form, meaning or elements used. She is a total artist. For a time, she even outshone Warhol, garnering front page coverage for outrageous happenings like 1969 s Grand Orgy to Awaken the Dead at the MOMA, that consisted of her painting dots on naked performers. In an open letter, she offered her body to Nixon in exchange for ending the Vietnam War, but her biggest controversy came at the 1966 Venice Bienalle s debut of her infamous Narcissus Garden. Showing up uninvited, and in a golden kimono, Kusama set her kinetic carpet of hundreds of mirrored metal spheres on the lawn. She then proceeded to sell individual pieces for 1,200 lire before organizers shut her down. It was a bold comment on art s commodification by an audacious provocateur in an era full of them. Back then I was filled with the struggle in my heart as ever, Kusama says. Looking back, many art critics say that my influence can be seen in the transition of contemporary art in America. I am so happy that the art I created inspired artists like Andy Warhol. Repetition, minimalism and magnification these are my concepts which I believe is spreading among many artists. By 1973, poor health and Cornell s death convinced her to move back to Japan. An attempt at art dealing failed and in 1977 she moved into her hospital home, a short distance from her studio. As she slipped from the art world s memory, she spent the 1980s writing novels and poems like Manhattan Suicide Addict and Double Suicide at Sakuragazuka. She would make her grand reentrance into the art world with her dazzling Pumpkin at the Japanese Pavillion at the 1993 Venice Bienalle. The mirrored room consisted of pumpkin sculptures and a magician robe-adorned Kusama. 58 December 2013 //

First page: Self-Portrait (2000) Since then, she s been commissioned to create elaborate projects such as the Thousands of Eyes floor exhibit at the Queen Elizabeth II Courts of Law in Brisbane and a 120-foot reproduction of her Yellow Trees painting on an uncompleted condominium in New York s Meatpacking District. I love creating large scale works. With my vast longing spirit, I want to express what I owe as a human being in this endless eternity. Large scale works are effective to develop a world of hope, passion and innovation, Kusama says. While she s beloved internationally indie group Boy Least Likely To even wrote a song praising her Asian crowds haven t really seen Kusama s work. It s a problem that Daegu Art Museum director Kim Sun-hee sought to rectify with the A Dream I Dreamed exhibition. Asia s contemporary art history is very short and her exhibitions were successfully touring important cities in Europe, America and South America, Kim says. She s the most important artist in contemporary art and many museum directors were interested, so we decided to do an Asian tour exhibition. The result is 118 works that reflect Kusama s career, including iconic pieces like Yellow Pumpkin and Narcissus Garden, infinity mirror rooms like I m Here But Nothing and the popular Obliteration Room, an interactive piece where attendees are given colorful stickers and invited to create their own Kusama Yayoi piece. I visited her four times in preparing this exhibition and she put in a lot of effort to make new artwork for it, Kim says. She s very energetic and sometimes paints two paintings in a day. She doesn t have interests like us and concentrates solely on her work. She says she s living for art, living by art, living off art (laughs). She s truly that kind of artist that doesn t have any desire except art. Although Kusama continues to be prolific, she will not be attending the exhibition. She paints in a wheelchair and relies on two assistants for menial tasks. Regardless, she remains motivated and was thrilled that over 300,000 people attended the opening stop in Daegu. She hopes more will see her work s debut in China. I am so moved, she says. I have always read Chinese poetry and literature with deep respect since I was a teenager. I have been involved in art and literature for a long time and I need to leave my messages to the young generation. I think that people should look at all the world s chaotic barren troubles with calmer, deeper, straighter and fairer eyes to complete life with peace and love. // A Dream I Dreamed runs from Dec 15 to Mar 30, RMB50.

62 arts music Queen of Peking Opera Celebrating the Legacy of Mei Lanfang BY Andrew Chin (clockwise from left) Mei Lanfang without the makeup, hosting Charlie Chaplin in Shanghai, in his classic dan roles. This month may be dominated by the 120th birthday celebrations of Mao Zedong, but another national icon is being feted for the same anniversary. Mei Lanfang was arguably China s greatest actor impressive because he predominantly played the female dan role in Peking opera. He s credited for popularizing the art abroad, where his fans included Charlie Chaplin, silent film Zorro Douglas Fairbanks and German playwright Bertolt Brecht. Remembered as the best of his era s Four Great Dan, Mei was much more. He brought a number of innovations to Peking Opera, from makeup (he was the first to wear lipstick), music (his productions popularized the erhu in shows), choreography (his iconic sword dance in Farewell My Concubine) and, most importantly, characterization. At a time when females were barred from performing, Mei Mei was arguably China s first pop star; cigarettes were named after him and a popular saying was that a good wife should be like Mei Lanfang elevated the dan into the starring role by combining elements of the qinyi (noble lady), huadan (coquettish woman) and daomadan (female warrior) into a new huashan character that excelled in singing, dancing and martial arts. The techniques he introduced led to the development of the Mei School that is regarded as one of the three major dramatic performing systems in the world, alongside the naturalistic method acting school of Constantin Stanislavsky and Brecht s Epic Theater of artifice. Born on October 22, 1894 to a family of Peking Opera and Kunqu performers, Mei made his stage debut at the historic Guanghe Theater in Bejing at 10. Despite being told by an early teacher that his dull eyes would limit his opportunities, Mei was a star by his teens. His fame reached a national level when he gave a sterling three day performance at Shanghai s Dan Gui stage at what is now Fuzhou Lu and Hubei Lu in Three years later he performed for 45 straight days, before moving to the city in 1918 to star in the silent film Chun Xiang Nao Xue Chun Xiang Disturbs the Studies. By then, Mei was arguably China s first pop star; cigarettes were named after him and a popular saying then was that a good wife should be like Mei Lanfang and a good son like [fellow actor] Zhou Xinfang. Shanghai had a profound influence on his work. While Mei had been lauded for reviving old arias 60 December 2013 //

63 and for changing the emphasis from singing to performing in Peking Opera, he was influenced by the city s modern drama that used elaborate sets, electric stage lights and modern stories. During this Golden Age, Mei was the first star to perform outside the country. He toured Japan three times (1919, 1924 and 1956), while his 1930 North American and 1935 European shows drew audiences that included Stanislavski, Brecht, Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw and purportedly Stalin. When Chaplin and Shaw visited China, they made sure to see Mei. While he was busy spreading Chinese culture around the world, tensions were growing with Japan back home. As the Japanese tightened their grip on the country, from 1932 Mei settled into a villa at what is now 87 Sinan Lu. To raise spirits, he created a number of patriotic shows like Battle Against the Invaders, donating profits to those affected by the war. By 1937 it was too late, as Shanghai fell to the Japanese. Mei fled to Hong Kong, only to return in 1942 once that city was also occupied. Despite having numerous fans in the puppet government, Mei refused to perform and grew a beard in protest. He lived an impoverished life, but was embraced by the new Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Following 1949, Mei served as director of the China Beijing Opera Theater, director of the Chinese Opera Research Institute and vicechairman of China Federation of Literary and Art Circles. A consummate worker, Mei was planning an extensive tour of northwest China when he died of a heart attack on August 8, While he and Peking Opera were denounced during the Cultural Revolution, his legacy has been restored. His last home on Beijing s Hugosi Lu was converted into the Mei Lanfang Memorial Museum in 1986, while the Mei Lanfang Grand Theater opened in His life was turned into the splashy 2008 biopic Forever Enthralled, but his biggest legacy lies in the work of his son, Mei Baojiu. A superb dan in his own right, Mei Baojiu has successfully carried on his father s Mei School and is the head of the Beijing Peking Opera Troupe. Since August, the group has been retracing Mei Lanfang s tour as part of his 120th birthday celebrations and they come to Shanghai this month. // Beijing Peking Opera Troupe performs Cycles of Sixty Years Appointment: 120th Anniversary of Mei Lanfang s Concerts, Dec 6, 7.15pm, RMB Shanghai Grand Theatre, 300 Renmin Da Dao, by Huangpi Bei Lu 人民大道 300 号, 近黄陂北路 ( , win!

Answer with the subject Mei Lanfang' to win@urbanatomy. com by December 4. THE LEGACY Mei Baojiu and disciple Hu Wenge BY ZOEY ZHA Mei Baojiu showed up to the Shanghai press conference for his father s 120th Anniversary Concert with a humble smile. The youngest son of Mei Lanfang has become a legendary dan in his own right, and the catalyst for the tour. While happy to be back in his birthplace, the 80-year-old was understandably exhausted from traveling with the crew through four cities. However, he chatted with That s about his father s legacy while introducing his best disciple, Hu Wenge, who he hopes will continue the Mei tradition of great male dans. How would you describe Master Mei Lanfang? Mei: To me, he was impeccable as an artist and a great man. Back then, xi zi the mocking name for stage performers were not well educated. They were treated as people with low status. My father, however, was more of a scholar than a stage performer. He indulged in researching opera, writing poems and painting. He enriched his performances by absorbing the essences of all art forms. That is what is unique about my father and why Mei Opera earned its recognition and reputation. I used to compare him to a crystal ball a symbol of perfection. And as I recall, he never scolded anyone. Master Mei grew a beard when threatened by Japanese army officials. Do you remember what that situation was like? Mei: Those Japanese officials intruded into our house at Sinan Lu three times. My father knew what they were plotting, but he knew better and would never cave in. He asked an acquaintance, Dr. Wu, to give him three injections to make him ill. Dr. Wu was very experienced and warned him that these dosages were likely to put his life in danger. My father decided to take the risk. When those officials came for the third time, my seriously ailing father left them no choice but to give up asking him to perform. Even they were in awe. I still remember clearly how much pain my father was in after the injections. Peking Opera is quintessentially Chinese but its popularity is fading. Do you think that the art form is being marginalized? Mei: I wouldn t say it is being marginalized but I did have an interesting experience. A young girl presented flowers after my performance and said she would like to learn Peking Opera. When I asked if she knew about Mei Lanfang, she hesitated and said, Mei Yanfang (a famous deceased Hong Kong pop singer) was great. That s when I figured that it isn t the art that s being marginalized but the culture itself hasn t been properly introduced. I listen to Michael Jackson and Celine Dion s songs, which are all great works. They help me with my performances. Different forms of arts can co-exist well, but you have to understand them properly first. As the third successor of Mei Opera and a male dan yourself, what are the challenges for male dan as opposed to female ones? Hu: Indeed most of the famous dan now are females, which is easy to understand. A good dan should be a combination of good figure, great facial expressions and a beautiful voice. For example, perfecting a tender voice is time-consuming for a male performer. But the male dan is part of traditional Peking opera culture. We have an advantage in terms of qi and for stretching stage performances. After all, a good performance comprises steady techniques and understanding of the role.

Meiwenti Productions is organizing the eleventh edition of this contest that celebrates DIY filmmaking. Participants are given four weeks to submit an eight- to twelve-minute film related to the theme One Night Stand. The whole idea is to motivate people to learn about film and show them that the technology is here so everyone can participate in film, explains Meiwenti founder Juan Vargas. A lot of people want to make movies but they re afraid of the quality and what people are going to think. The idea is to kick you in the ass to get off the sofa. If you re having fun learning how to make a movie with friends, then you will do it. Vargas epitomizes the festival s can-do spirit. Since moving to Shanghai a decade ago with no film experience, he s made two independent full-length films, 2006 s 90 Days Visa and the upcoming Quakebeam an experimental scifi-action-comedy with completely improvised dialogue. Like many artists, Vargas motivation came from distaste. In this case, it was the Adam Sandlerstarring dramedy Spanglish. That movie was so crap, he says. I was outraged, especially because these movies get millions of dollars in funding. I called my friends and told them I wanted to do a movie. The whole idea is to motivate people to learn about film and show them that everyone can make one Over 100 people were involved in the nine-month making of 90 Days Visa. During post-production of the film, Vargas created the Shanghai Short Film Contest to sustain the buzz that the film created. A lot of people that participated in the beginning have become professionals, Vargas says. In a way, Meiwenti is like a trampoline where people realize they can do this and continue. Submitted films have ranged from film noir to sarcastic, comedic takes on conventional Hollywood romance to stop motion. The best are screened at the awards show with a jury of industry professionals awarding Best Film, Second Best Film, Best Actor and Best Actress. Attendees vote on the People s Choice Award. Regardless of who wins, Vargas describes the party as one of the best in town. It s very sexy because girls dress nice, but since you re seeing something on screen, it makes it very conducive to talking, he says. // Dec 15, pm, RMB Xinguang Cinema, 586 Ningbo Lu, by Guangxi Bei Lu 宁波路 586 号, 近广西北路 (donjuanvargas., meiwentiproductions@ win!

CHINA'S MICRO-FILM BOOM Online independent film is gaining steam in China. Known as wei dian ying 微电影 in Chinese, industry experts estimate that over 2000 micro-films are made per year compared to 500 features. Directors like The Chopstick Brothers have leveraged viral successes into feature film opportunities, while companies like Lenovo and Intel have had success using the form to push their brand message. Even Yao Ming is getting into the act, starring with his wife in a public service micro-film this August about the importance of designated drivers when drinking. Although debates rage on what actually constitutes a micro-film, everyone agrees that the trend will continue. At its most basic, they are non-feature length videos that are submitted onto streaming services like Youku. The China Internet Network Information (CNNIC) reported that 65.9 percent of China s 372 million The Chopstick Brothers in Old Boys Internet users watch online videos, with an estimated 30 million people that shoot, edit and produce them. The Chopstick Brothers gained fame with with 2010 s Old Boys. The 43-minute movie shows two old high school friends attempting to recapture their youthful glory by participating in a singing contest. It has generated over 60 million hits. As China subtly introduces measures to curb online piracy, companies like Tencent, Sina, Sohu and Youku have been increasingly creating and depending on their original productions. Youku s first original online sitcom, Hip-Hop Office Quartet, has garnered over 200 million hits and launched its fifth season in July. The company teamed with the Hong Kong International Film Festival Society on the Beautiful 2012 micro-film series that included contributions by Golden Horse-winning director Tsai Ming- Liang and frequent Zhang Yimou collaborator Lü Yue. That series also includes My Way, a film about a transgendered woman in Hong Kong that has received more than four million hits since being posted on Youku. The artistic film s success has given optimism that micro-film offers an opportunity to fully pursue artistic projects. Although the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) announced restrictions last year on micro-films, they have placed the onus on video sites to monitor the material. Despite the regulations, various government agenies have organized hundreds of micro-film festivals, and the biggest issues surround how the medium will evolve as it leaves the underground. // To see some of China s most successful microfilm projects, see the expanded online story at 62 December 2013 //

65 music Top Floor Circus Why So Serious? By Zoey Zha There is no more quintessential Shanghai rock band than Top Floor Circus. Since forming in 2001, they ve released four full-length records, including the just released 30-song double album Money Ruins a Relationship (Yet a Relationship Ruins Money and the Relationship) that prominently features new member Fanfan s female vocals. Featuring satirical observations about city life sung completely in Shanghainese (they were briefly banned from performing in the city due to controversial 2009 pre-expo song Shanghai Welcomes You,) TFC s wild Christmas shows have become a holiday rock tradition. We chat with the group s bassist Su Yong about what makes the band tick after a dozen years. On the evolution of the group We started by playing experimental music and then we tried rock and punk. On our last album we even tried xiao qingxin (indiepop). We like being diverse. We don t intend to write more Mandarin songs. Top Floor Circus stands for Shanghai dialect and so be it On song inspiration Trivial things real life, so to say. I think we re exposed to those over-sentimental love songs now. Missing a date won t kill anybody. We will live even if we can t be the brightest star in the sky. That s who we are normal people. We worry about being late for work if we stop for breakfast. That s how we wrote Shanghai 25 Hours. On China s rock scene Chinese rock culture originally developed in northern cities like Beijing and Lanzhou, but we do have great southern rock bands. The competition is much less fierce here. We are encouraged to create out of pure interest and absolute joy. On singing in Shanghainese When we perform on national stages like the MIDI Music Festival, we will pick Mandarin songs or at least have subtitles. We do get concerned that audiences from different places will have difficulty connecting with Shanghainese dialect. Having said that, we don t intend to write more Mandarin songs. Top Floor Circus stands for the Shanghai dialect and so be it. On future plans We always say, we re not a group of ambitious people. We get together, chat, write down ideas and then sing them out. Yet, when it comes to money, we make sure that everyone gets the right amount. That s how we keep united. (laughs) On regrets No. We re devoted to making each album but discussions end once they re completed. As long as we re satisfied, it doesn t matter. After all, why so serious? Perfection is never our goal. // Top Floor Circus headlines their annual Shanghai Calling!

STEPPE BROTHERS Ajinai s Mongolian folk fusion BY Karol Zawistowski Since forming in Beijing in 2009, Ajinai has built a dedicated following. Their 2012 self-titled debut album demonstrated their uncanny ability to turn traditional Mongolian tunes into songs with oodles of contemporary appeal. Fresh from a European tour, bandleader Hugjiltu chatted with us ahead of their December 6 show in Shanghai as part of the Guinness MORE Music Series, spotlighting China s urban folk scene. How did Ajinai start mixing Mongolian music with contemporary sounds? I come from a traditional music background, but in Beijing there are so many musicians who come from different backgrounds doing various styles of music, so we are always trying to bring out different possibilities in Mongolian music. It is becoming an important and innovative way for Mongolians to spread our music. There will be definitely more new attempts in our future work. What type of things do you sing about? Most of our music involves concerns of the current situation and issues of the prairie and Mongolian people. We also adapted some local folk songs which have either great significance or distinctive local characteristics. Which of the band s unique instruments gets the most oohs and looks when you play live? Probably the morin khuur. The audience is fascinated when we play it and its sounds are very special. It's a wooden two-stringed instrument whose neck has the form of a horse-head; its sound has been described as expansive and unrestrained, like a wild horse neighing or a breeze in the grasslands. Your group features throat singing. Is that a dying art or are there many people still practicing it? This kind of throat singing is called khoomei and is traditional in Mongolia. It has a very distinctive sound and compresses lots of emotional tension. Not many people in Mongolia were learning it and it came close to dying, but recently more young people are starting to study it. There are a lot of khoomei teachers in schools. What does the future hold? The new album should be released in 2014 and is a bit different from our last one. Our new band members are bringing more of an electro and Mongolian music mix. // Dec 6, 8.30pm, RMB60 (with a bottle of Guinness).

66 arts dance Heartbeat of Home Creators of Riverdance ready for their encore BY Andrew Chin What do you do for an encore after a worldwide sensation like Riverdance? When director John McColgan and producer Moya Doherty adapted a seven-minute dance routine from the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest into a full-length stage production in 1995, they couldn t expect that 22 million people across forty countries would attend. Rather than rest on their laurels, the couple are back with ambitious new production Heartbeat of Home, making its international debut in China this month. A cast of 29 dancers, cutting-edge projection technology and a tenpiece band have been brought in to complete McColgan and Doherty s vision, to reach new heights of excellence in music and dance in a contemporary interpretation. Heartbeat of Home follows three separate groups in Ireland, Spain and Africa forced to leave their homelands in search of a better future. The show s first act pays homage to that first generation of travelers as they reset their lives, while the second act is a celebration of the present, where cultures and dances have merged. We wanted to not only reflect the changing face of modern Ireland but to embrace the story of immigration and how we have traveled to new worlds where we communicate to each other through music and dance, Doherty explains. It s a show from our deep rooted culture taking the much loved rhythms of flamenco, tango and salsa with modern street rhythms to create a beautiful experience together with the wonderful percussive drum-like rhythms of the Irish dancers, so loved by all Riverdance fans. Although there are several scenes that spotlight a specific dance like modern flamenco and hardshoe acapella, the show has inspired intrigue for mixing seemingly disparate styles. It opens with a spectacular number where Afro-Cuban, Latin and Irish dance converge. The purely Irish numbers came first as they were easier for me, admits John Carey, who oversaw choreography with David Bollger, Artistic Director of Coiscéim Dance All the guys in the audience want to be him and all the girls want to date him! Theatre in Dublin. The fusion numbers took a lot more time and collaborative effort to get the right mix and blend of styles that was exciting while keeping the dancers true to their roots. As the first English dancer selected to join Riverdance, Carey is part of Heartbeat of Home s impressive creative team. Golden Globe nominated composer Brian Byrne (Albert Nobbs, In America) wrote the score and 2012 Irish PEN Award winner Joseph O Connor provided lyrics and the narrative. McColgan and Doherty also insisted on using the latest technology to conjure up a changing stage environment. Designing an animated environment using cutting-edge animation projection technology was critical, Doherty says and it pays off in the Don t Slip Jig scene that recreates a famed photo of workers eating lunch on an iron girder high above New York City. The entire piece got rapturous applause every single night even before the dancing started, Carey says. The scenery, the projection and moving set for this number are absolutely spectacular and recreate the picture perfectly. Then the dancers move out of their static pose, stand on the girder and perform a hard shoe acapella piece which incorporates comedy along with sheer amazing dancing. Pulling off these intricate moves is a cast headlined by esteemed names like Irish dancer Ciara Sexton (female lead in Michael Flatley s Lord of the Dance), Latin dancer Clare Craze (pro dancer on Dancing with the Stars) and Afro- Cuban dancer Teneisha Bonner (star of Into the Hoods, the longest running dance show in West End history). While Carey praises all of the dancers as absolute stars, he singles out the standout performance of Irish dance male lead Bobby Hodges. He couples a captivating stage presence with a cool effortless vibe looking like a Hollywood movie star, Carey gushes. All the guys in the audience want to be him and all the girls want to date him! More than 40,000 people have already fallen under Hodges and the show s sway since its rapturous official debut at Dublin s Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on October 2. Audiences and critics raved about its initial ten-day run, and a performance was filmed for a 2014 DVD release. The show will travel to China for pairs of performances in Beijing and Shanghai, before making its North American debut in Toronto next year. Dance is an international language and the rhythms within Irish dance are so strong, percussive and powerful, like a heartbeat to speak to the world, Doherty says. We have a very close relationship with Chinese audiences with Riverdance and hope the audiences will embrace the new show and all its vibrant energy in the same way. // Heartbeat of Home runs from Dec 6-7, 7.30pm, RMB180-1,500.

67 Q&A with Heartbeat of Home s Natasia and Gianna Petracic Gianna To fill their cast, the producers of Heartbeat of Home organized an online talent search. Dancers from around the world were invited to submit a video for a chance to join the cast. Australian sisters Natasia and Gianna Petracic managed to land two of the coveted ten spots. That s chatted with the two about the audition process, opening night and coming to China for the first time. How did you get involved with Heartbeat of Home? Gianna: I had heard from a close friend that the producers of Riverdance were creating a new dance show and they were encouraging dancers across the globe to audition online. Originally I wasn t going to but then one night after dancing, my sister Natasia and I said what have we got to lose? So we made a video. Natasia: It landed us a spot to attend the live auditions, followed by being asked to join as a dancer in the show. What is it like working with dancers in a different style? Gianna: To be surrounded by so many talented, passionate and hardworking people every day is a true blessing. During rehearsals, I was always eager to attend class as I knew I would be challenging myself in different styles of dance. Some days were tough and some days were great. But Natasia having dancers trained in flamenco, ballroom, contemporary dance and Irish dance made it an exciting working environment. We all supported one another as we were all equally interested to learn from each other. Natasia: I enjoyed working amongst all the artists during rehearsals as it showcased such a dynamic blend. We learned from one another and explored movement with the choreographers so we could create something innovative for the show. The show premiered in October. What was opening night like? Natasia: Opening night was a roller coaster of emotions and one of the most memorable shows I have ever performed. The audience was as energetic as the show which makes any performer motivated to perform on stage. Gianna: Nothing can top the feeling of being able to dance beside my older sister and have our mother sitting in the audience watching. The show will be coming to China this month. Are you excited about the shows? Natasia: China will be an experience as this is our first time to visit. I am sure everyone will be blown away by what we have to offer. December 2013 // 65

68 arts theater Rule of Thumbelina SRT Returns with Hans Christian Andersen Adaptation BY Andrew Chin In Shanghai Repertory Theater s (SRT) upcoming adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen s Thumbelina, a girl as tall as a thumb emerges from a flower. On her way to her happily ever after, she is forced to fend off suitors including a rat that wants to turn her into a showgirl, a rich mole with a large bottle cap collection and a momma s boy toad. The play marks the first SRT production since last December, and will continue their family friendly holiday show tradition that began with 2009 s A Christmas Carol. While Andersen is best known for his three-volume Fairy Tales collection, comrpised of stories like The Little Mermaid, The Ugly Duckling and The Emperor s New Clothes, SRT founder Rosita L. Janbakhsh says the show will appeal to audiences of all ages. In Thumbelina, you have a woman fighting against being forced to marry certain people, she says. Even though kids will find it silly because it s animals, adults will see these deeper themes of one woman wanting to do something different to what is expected from her. Balancing between different demographics is a challenge that director Maja-Stina Wang is accustomed to. She directed SRT s 2012 holiday production of C.S. Lewis The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and a 2010 Chinese-language adaptation of Swedish children s story A Night in February. For both adults and children to enjoy it, we d like to find the depth and try to bring out some of the subjects in the script like Am I ugly because I don t look like you? and Am I not worth anything because I don t have money? she explains. When I read it now as an adult, I immediately relate it to my life here and now. I m a PhD student at the Shanghai Theater Academy and I have these discussions about marriage and money with my students who are wondering what All play with the cast and crew of Thumbelina Even though kids will find it silly, adults will see these deeper themes of a woman wanting to do something different from what is expected of her choices they want to make. Set on a riverbank, the show features a cast of seven that will portray 20 characters. Wang plans to add a few artistic touches to the show, like shadow play and physical movement. I always try to find new ways to use the Ke Center, she adds. This time, I would like to open it up to create a landscape by placing lights in weird places. We want the audience to feel like they are in the forest as well. Artistic challenges have always been a mandate at SRT. Since starting in 2009, the company has adapted a contemporary Chineselanguage play that they brought to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, produced a completely original show, performed an all-french play and spearheaded initiatives like the 24-hour theater festival held two years ago. It s a beautiful thing to be able to grow to the point where you can choose what shows you want to do when, Janbakhsh says. The focus is to do the highest quality work that we can with the amount of support available to the company while still challenging ourselves artistically. Although Thumbelina will be SRT s only play in 2013, they have big plans for next year, including a four-person contemporary play set for the spring and possibly reviving their Creative Collaborators Competition (CCC) where anyone can submit a one-act play for possible production. While a few new companies have popped up during SRT s hiatus, Janbakhsh is encouraged by the growing thirst for theater in the city. It s pretty cool to say that we have this many English-language plays happening in Shanghai, she says. It s more than the number of English-language films playing in the cinema. Where in the world can you go where you have more plays available to you than films in the cinema? // Dec 6-15, 8pm (Wed-Sat), 3pm (weekend matinee), RMB Ke Center for the Contemporary Arts, 613B Kaixuan Lu, by Yan an Xi Lu 凯旋路 613 号, 近延安西路 ( , FAIRY TALE LAND The world s first theme park based on Hans Christian Andersen s fairy tales is supposed to open in Shanghai in time for the Spring Festival. The eighthectare park will incorporate elements of his notable works in its New Jiangwan City site. Originally scheduled to open in 2009, the project was delayed due to its initial investors being busted for bribery, and the global financial crisis. However, new patron Gui Longde has shelled out RMB200 million to complete the project. Whether it actually does get done or not, it will not be even close to the oddest literary theme parks in the world. That honor goes to London s Dickensland a recreation of the joie de vivre that was Industrial Revolution-era England.

69 theater Holiday Jeer THE RETURN OF THE MISANTHROPIC ELF BY Andrew Chin Seasonal misery is mined for sardonic comedy in Urban Aphrodite s adaptation of David Sedaris The SantaLand Diaries. Based on his experiences working as a Macy s department store elf during the holiday rush, the one-man show follows the observations of a penniless, misanthropic aspiring soap opera writer forced to take the job as Crumpet the Christmas Elf. It s a dark side of the season that Sedaris mines for comic gold. John Prakapas (Betrayal) dons the green elf costume and throughout the show delivers wry monologues on Santa-fearing children, pushy parents, the hierarchy of mall elf duties and a peppy costume manager that insists they must all wear panties for the sake of realism. I used to work in a big department store in a mall as Christmas help, Prakapas says. It can be a total nightmare, so it really isn t hard to empathize with the character. While Crumpet may be having a terrible Christmas, The SantaLand Diaries has been a gift that keeps giving. The short essay provided Sedaris with his big break. His reading of the piece on American public radio station NPR s Morning Edition show in 1992 brought his unique perspective to national attention. We thought it was so funny and clever, we decided to make it a holiday tradition, says the show's executive editor Ellen McDonnell. "The response to Crumpet the elf was overwhelming and positive." Since then, the popular humorist has sold over ten million copies of his nine books. The show was first adapted for the stage in 1996 by four-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello and has become a modern seasonal favorite in North America. It's also significant for Urban Aphrodite who incorporated Santaland in their Shanghai debut last December. The show sold out three of their four nights at This elf is full of holiday punch I enjoy making fun of sacred things, so this show is perfect. It was so fun and there is no reason not to do it again the Mansion Hotel, and Prakapas laughs about the unique energy of these performances. It was a roller coaster! he exclaims. Every night something would go wrong and it would make the show different. One night, one lady kept calling out to me to participate in the action. It was hilarious in retrospect and it turned out to be the best show. Following that show, Urban Aphrodite has produced eight plays ranging from stage classics like Who s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? to modern comedies like The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged) to experimental theater pieces like Thom Paine (An Ode to Nothing). In April, the company organized a successful Shanghai Glee competition for high school and elementary school students. I m thankful for the beautiful energy coming back from the audience, says show director and Urban Aphrodite founder Ann James. We have people that have seen all the shows since the last Christmas show and we now offer subscription packages. People who are willing to commit to seeing more than one of our shows is a blessing. Originally not on their production schedule, the show was remounted on Prakapas request. The thought kept nagging at me, he says. I really just wanted another crack at it. I enjoy making fun of sacred things, so this show is perfect. It was so fun and there is no reason not to do it again. The 45-minute show will be preceded by a one-act musical production by the six solo finalists from Shanghai Glee. While they attend different high schools, the cast became friends through the competition with a desire to work together on a project. Much like Prakapas, the teenagers approached James about participating. It s pretty much their project and it will be as adult as kids can be, she says. They re doing the choreography themselves and picking the songs. They were talking about some sort of Christmas zombie elves thriller so it s definitely their take on the season. The 45-minute musical will mix together Christmas classics with rock staples like Satisfaction by the Rolling Stones and contemporary pop like Lady Gaga s Applause. The two-act holiday production will have a three-day run and Prakapas has just one wish for the show. Last year I made brownies before every show. At some point, I would walk around and pass them out. I was always surprised at how hard it is to get people to eat brownies, he says before conceding, Of course, I don t know if I would eat something some crazy person in an elf suit handed me. // Dec 12-15, 8pm, RMB Sasha s, 11 Dongping Lu, by Hengshan Lu 东平路 11 号 3 楼, 近衡山路 ( , tickets@ We have a pair of tickets to The SantaLand Diaries to give away.

Fact: they re not actually nuts, but the tubers of a marsh plant, so it s important to peel off the dark skins before eating. Choose deep purple ones with unwrinkled skin and few soft spots.

Dark chocolate truffles By James Stockdale, British Kitchen Rich, silky smooth and devilishly moreish, these make fantastic Christmas gifts for family and friends, or a little treat for oneself of course! Although this recipe celebrates truffles in their basic form, you can include all sorts of additions to create endless delights try adding extras to the cream like cinnamon, cardamom or even a little chili if you d like a spicy lift. Ingredients: Makes 48 truffles 300 g good quality dark chocolate (around 70 percent, I like Callabaut dark chocolate from Belgium) 300 ml cream A good pinch of salt 1 shot of brandy or rum (optional) 30 g cocoa powder for finished coating Using a knife, chop the chocolate into small pieces and add to a heatproof bowl. Pour cream into a saucepan and place over gentle heat. When it reaches the simmering point, turn off heat, add salt (and brandy/rum if using) and stir. Pour cream over the chocolate. Allow it to rest for a couple of minutes. Then slowly stir the cream and chocolate together until evenly combined. If you find the chocolate doesn t completely dissolve, simply place the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water to coax it on! Pour chocolate mixture into a loaf tin lined with baking paper, and let it cool for two-three hours. Cover and place in the fridge for five hours or overnight so it completely sets. Once set, remove from the tin and cut into cubes (hint: warm your knife in hot water before each slice). Roll truffles in cocoa powder to finish, and then keep in an airtight box in the fridge until ready to serve. 72 December 2013 //

75 Christmas Pudding By James Stockdale, British Kitchen A good Christmas pudding recipe should never be tampered with, but given the difficulty of obtaining certain ingredients in Shanghai, I think exceptions can be made. A traditional pud uses suet, but butter offers an acceptable substitute. Candied peel is also quite difficult to source, so try dried kumquats, available at most dried fruit shops. In addition, pudding basins are tricky and expensive to buy, but a glazed ceramic plant pot does the job just as well! Due to alcohol content, a Christmas pudding keeps remarkably well if stored properly (a cool and dry environment). Just remember to feed it a little whiskey every few weeks, which helps develop flavors nicely. Ingredients: Serves six 250 g raisins 75 g dried apricots, chopped 75 g dried cranberries 50 g dried kumquats, finely chopped 150 ml stout/dark beer 50 ml whiskey 150 g butter cold butter, grated 100 g flour 1 tsp mixed spice 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 175 g brown ginger sugar 200 g breadcrumbs 2 eggs Zest & juice of 1 orange Zest & juice of 1 lemon Place the raisins, apricots, cranberries and kumquats in a large bowl and cover with the whiskey. Stir together well, then cover and leave overnight. Add the butter to a bowl with the flour and spices and mix. Whisk the eggs in a bowl, then add to the flour mixture along with the sugar, orange and lemon zest and juice, soaked fruit and stout. Mix until everything is evenly combined. Liberally butter two plant pots (each approx. 0.5 liter in size) and add a small disk of baking paper to the bottom of each one. Fill both equally with the mixture and smooth the top. Place another disk of baking paper on top of the mix, then make a small hat from tinfoil and secure in place with string. Place in a large saucepan and fill with cold water to one third the height of the pot. Cover the pot and place over a gentle heat and simmer the water for three hours, checking occasionally that it doesn t boil dry. Once cooked, remove from the water and leave to cool completely, then store for one to two months in a cool and dry place, feeding every couple of weeks with a little whiskey. To reheat the pudding, simply follow the saucepan instructions, but only cook for two hours. Serve on a large plate. If you like, once brought to the table pour a little whiskey over the pudding and very carefully set fire to it you ll amaze at dinners and create the perfect ending to a lovely Christmas day. // too much work?

76 eat / drink NEW RESTAURANT EL LUCHADOR GETTING YONGKANG IN ITS GRIP BY NED KELLY Elliot debruyn DaDAdadaDAdaDAda, DaDAdadaDAdaDA, Tequila! It is time we accepted it. Yongkang Lu is an irresistibly increasing force. Just when it seems to have no room left to expand and has all culinary bases covered, someone opens a new concept, and in one of the biggest spaces on this mini-strip. That someone is the team behind the Camel, DOC and closer to this new home Sliders and the Blarney Stone. The concept: a Mexican wrestling-themed cantina. The venue: a two-story lot on the southern corner by Xiangyang. Similar in décor to their popular Italian spot on Dongping Lu, the interior features stripped-down simplicity with splashes of personality in this case, exposed brick walls painted over with large portraits of masked grapplers, plus photos and masks adorning throughout. Red tiles, wooden stairs and doors and no-fuss furniture complete the look. The menu follows a similar ethos. Chef Eduardo Gomez (who cut his teeth at Nobu in his native Mexico City) formerly cooked at Mi Tierra and then Mexo at the Bund, where he turned on the haute flair. It worked for us, but never seemed to quite take off in either place, and maybe wouldn t with the Yongkang crowd either. What surely will, and what Gomez seems to be doing here, are traditional favorites with the occasional twist. We went looking for that twist, and the like-minded should go beyond the great-as-a-snackwith-your-margarita staples of chips and salsa trio (RMB30) or nachos (RMB45) you know what you re getting, no explanation necessary. Order choriqueso (RMB55) instead, a pan of chorizo meat and roasted mozzarella with a few jalapenos thrown in for good measure. The meat has engaging spice and lacks oiliness. Served with four homemade flour tortillas, it is a great sharer. Squid rings vs las salsas Ground pork chorizo piqued our interest, with thinsliced pieces of the spicy sausage atop the tortilla adding crunch (RMB50) are also a great bite, the batter satisfyingly crispy and well salt n peppered, with three dips to liven them up. As for tacos, they are an enticingly priced, soak-up-a-yongkangsession RMB30 across the board and there s even talk of a taco window opening straight onto the street. It was once again ground pork chorizo, this time marinated in red adobo sauce, which piqued our interest, with thin-sliced pieces of the grilled spicy sausage on top of the tortilla adding depth and crunch. As for specialties, sizzling fajitas could do with a more generous portion to justify their RMB80 price tag, but the chimichanga (RMB70) hits the spot. Essentially a fried burrito stuffed with chicken (or beef), mild poblano chilies and pico de gallo, the pan time gives the outside a nice shell feel, the inside has satisfying gooey goodness, thanks to cheese and refried beans. El Luchador will happily welcome you in for drinks alone though, and invariably that means margaritas. A wide selection hits the spot at RMB50 each or RMB200/jug, but head in between 11.30am and 3pm any day and get free-flow margaritas and Corona for the dangerously good value of RMB125. We see messy weekends with a Mexican twist on the horizon. // 85 Yongkang lu, by xiangyang nan lu 永康路 85 号, 近襄阳南路 ( , www. 74 December 2013 //

77 Jade Garden Canto hits in the Kerry Centre Shanghai is getting an influx of dim sum options this year, with Jade Garden the latest to wade into the culinary fray. Backed by the enormous Maxim s Group which operates more than 800 dining outlets in Hong Kong and China this Cantonese spot is a jewel in their many-pronged crown. Marking their first time opening a Chinese restaurant in Shanghai, the group has gone big. Very big. Taking up the entire fourth floor of the Jing an Kerry Centre s South Wing, the main dining room seats 338 people and has more crystal dangling from the ceiling than you can possibly imagine. Suited, attentive waiters flit around the hall; monogrammed tablecloths and napkins meet the eye at every glance. Despite ritzy decor, Jade Garden which has one Michelin star in Hong Kong has kept its prices reasonable, especially at lunch when dim sum is served from 11am-3pm (and from 10am on weekends). The place is packed every day with lines of hungry hopefuls, eager to get a bite of the restaurant s signature yum cha. The dishes certainly boast beautiful presentation and flavors that ring true. Blocks of pan-fried turnip cakes with preserved meat (RMB18) are perfectly crisp, with a savory, creamy center. An enormous baked pineapple bun (RMB18), filled with chunky pineapple jam, feels like eating a puff of hot air and butter, while smoky, sweet barbecued pork puff pastries (RMB24) maintain a delicate, flaky exterior and gooey center. Shrimp dumplings (RMB28) are competent, but nothing to write home about, but vegetable and bamboo pith dumplings (RMB24) are surprisingly flavorful, the thin rice flour skin bursting with the crunch of lightly oiled greens. There are worthy dishes on the main menu also, like delicate, trembling egg custard crowned with a sweet steamed tiger prawn, drawn into sharp relief by fragrant Taidiao rice liquor (RMB48). Crispy barbecued suckling piglet (RMB88) is, quite frankly, gorgeous. The little porker is stuffed with a savory marinade so the succulent meat is infused with garlic and brown sugar, crowned with crackling auburn skin worthy of a spotlight. Jade Garden succeeds in making heavy dishes feel weightless and light ones seem significant, making this a sure bet for yum cha enthusiasts, even after the new sheen wears off.

78 eat / drink NEW RESTAURANT Morton s Steak and Seafood Grille What should we call me? BY Monica Liau Elliot debruyn Seafood is edging in on Morton's turf A high-end Chicago steak house and mid-range Texas seafood chain meet in Shanghai and settle down in the IAPM Mall to make a baby. After some delay, they give birth to a cerulean-hued new life, replete with an oyster raw bar and a new menu developed by a Greek chef. What do you get? Give up? The new Morton s concept a lovechild of the Lujiazui steakhouse and American restaurant brand Landry s Seafood, whose parent company acquired Morton s last year fully resides in the category of other. Gone are those plush red seats and that posh old-boys-club darkness (though prices are still skyhigh), replaced with full-length windows, white carpets and a neon blue lighting scheme that makes the place feel like an aquarium come evening. As for the Greek chef, so heralds the return of Panagiotis Kalamidas. After closing his lovely, but cash-strapped Mediterranean restaurant 1228, Kalamidas took up the Executive Chef mantle at Capital M Beijing, sister restaurant to M on the Bund. The food he has brought back embodies a cultural fusion not usually associated with the Morton s name, served in jaw-dropping, mountainous portions meant to share. It all falls safely within the realms of corporate approval, of course (the menu had to be okayed by the board), but reflects a business dining world that no longer prefers to eat in shades of steak and potato. Instead, the suits might dig into tender piles of deep fried chili squid (RMB95) served over a stirfry of julienned vegetables in a cheeky teriyaki-like sauce an unexpected nod to China and the Mediterranean. Then, there might follow three large sea scallops, broiled and wrapped in bacon (RMB220), the smoke The food reflects a business dining world that no longer prefers to eat in shades of steak and potato and sea flavors intensified with spicy apricot chutney. There s also a whole ocean s worth of sweet shrimp, lump crab meat and fresh lobster in the seafood martini (RMB298) though we would have preferred the jumble less drowned in mayonnaise and onion, as the kimchi in the dressing already brings a pungent enough punch. Then, there are times when we leave America behind all together. Fin & shell fish stew (RMB595) taps directly into Kalamidas roots; a luscious, rustic bouillabaisse of mussels, clams, shrimp and more crab floating in a broth resonant of crashing waves, emphasized with a splash of Pernod. Find yourself missing that old Morton s attitude? There are still offerings that speak to the original host, like a massive Chicago bone-in ribeye (RMB768/650g) that s perfectly cooked and big enough for four. Complement it with some of the raw bars nine different live oysters (RMB42/Pacific from New Zealand to RMB90/Perle Noire from France), an order of fat crab cakes (RMB210) and some ridiculously indulgent creamed spinach (RMB90) to land safely back in surf and turf territory a comforting place indeed, if not necessarily fresh. // 4/F, iapm mall, 999 Huaihai Zhong lu, by Shaanxi nan lu 淮海中路 999 号 4 楼, 近陕西南路 76 December 2013 //

79 Light & Salt Fine art for the stomach BY Lauren Hogan It seems 1920s- and 30sstyle is just the bee s knees these days. Down at the Rockbund, there s another tribute to Prohibition. But, much to our delight, this one really resonates. Owned by restaurateur Ethan Tian, also behind bookstore-based Bouquet wine cafes, Light & Salt is a diverse and ambitious project, but complicated in its many parts, so try and keep up. By day, you can pop into their vintage shop Wondullful Archive full of artistic curios, artisanal printing studio Printolabo or L&S Books bookshop by day, wine bar by night. But in the evenings, this is the realm for food and drink aficionados heading to Ms. Ding Dining for dinner. Named after an early founder of China s YWCA the building s former resident the restaurant menu takes a page from the 1930s and is characterized as Old Colors style cuisine. Potato salad seems an odd choice to start, but dressed in lime aioli and adorned with caviar, quail eggs and candied bacon, it s by far the best we ve ever had. Beef tartar, topped with a butter poached egg yolk, is tender, just barely held together by avocado mousse as it melts away in our mouth. Rich duck pie an amalgamate of silky bone marrow and foie gras encased in a crisp shell and sided with mushy peas and duck jus is a heavenly combo, while roasted miso cod served with savory purple potato dip is nearly as good a choice for those preferring a lighter main. Still in soft opening, the menu is priced at RMB350 for three courses, an extra RMB45 for dessert. Manager and sommelier Brandon Ho is also there to present wines for each course, another element of art added into this masterpiece meal. For dessert, we are presented with a tray of rainbow dumplings, each filled with a different flavorful jelly and served with dry ice streaming from underneath the plate. Digging into the last sweet morsel, we think this magical exhibit is nearly over but, of course, there s an encore. The Library Distillery, a secret speakeasy hidden behind a wall and needing a password to enter, proves the highlight of the evening. Inside is Rick Starr, an engaging young bartender just moved from New York who infuses his passion for both art and literature into his drinks. From behind a roulette table, he mixes creative cocktails and talks Kafka, creating one last, delicious chapter to this wonderful evening tale. //6/F, rock Bund, 133 Yuanmingyuan lu, by Beijing dong lu 圆明园路 133 号 6 楼, 近北京东路 ( ) November 2013 // 77

80 eat / drink NEW RESTAURANT Cha Ma Garden Tasty treats from Southern climes BY Monica Liau Elliot debruyn Sultry bowls of rice noodle soup speak of southern climes Bordered by Southeast Asia, Tibet and Sichuan, playing host to microclimates ranging from rainforests to high-altitude plateaus and home to 25 out of China s 50 ethnic minorities, Yunnan is China s stewpot for cultural and biological diversity, giving rise to cuisine that is exotic, puzzling and given its diversity and reliance on local ingredients often impossible to recreate authentically outside of its native soils. So overwhelming are the choices, it s easy for restaurants to boil Yunnan down to a quick list of greatest hits. Not so the newly opened Cha Ma Garden. Presided over by the restaurant group behind high-end Shanghainese chain Yuan Yuan, the management has brought in chefs from Yunnan in an admirable bid to hit every region in the province. This makes it very possible to get lost in a tome of a menu nearly 100 pages of dishes that channel both street food and haute eating cultures. Do you want to tap into Naxi culture with an order of modern little babas (RMB18), the simple rounds of puffy, layered bread lighter than you might find on the streets of Lijiang, but just as addictive? Or are you more in the mood to pay tribute to Kunming with a bowl of small pot rice noodles (RMB15/person), where slippery, tremulous tendrils swim in a vibrant sauce of chilies, pickled vegetables, sesame oil and ground chicken? Trying to recreate a meal in Xishuangbanna might prove disappointing. The grilled fish (RMB78) for which the southern city is famous is appropriately split in half, roasted over smoky coals and covered in a layer of fragrant herbs and chilies. But the outside comes so impossibly charred that it s hard to get through the hard skin with our chopsticks. When we do, we re rewarded with rather muddy tasting meat, and soon give up the fight. However, another specialty turnip skin pickled in rice wine (RMB18) is a good complement to the meal, the crisp Pay tribute to Kunming with a bowl of small pot rice noodles, where slippery, tremulous tendrils swim in a vibrant sauce and tart slices cutting through the grease of other dishes. A trip to the northern regions proves fruitful with a gamey, fragrant ham and organic cauliflower clay pot (RMB38) and basket of cured beef jerky fried in chili oil (RMB68) both bolstering us against the cold. The chefs also specialize in chicken soup cooked in a clay pot (RMB22/person). While you can add all sorts of special herbs like ginseng and trumpet flowers, we prefer the clean flavors and tender meat of the original recipe. Yunnanese restaurants have a tendency to either cater to a more up-market crowd the atmospheric Lost Heaven and rowdy Southern Barbarian have both made killings or go very local, diners snacking on weird bugs and local baijiu perched upon stools beneath the blaze of neon lighting. Cha Ma falls somewhere comfortably in between, with lots of windows and a patina of calming azure and light wood. It is a great place for a relaxed lunch or dinner, affordable and far from the frenzied crowds you ll find at other popular joints in town. A dish of the Grandma s potatoes (RMB26) alone is worth the trip. The creamy spuds come exuberantly spiced up with chili and herbs, a simple homage to the greatness of Yunnan cookery and impossibly delicious. // 598 longhua lu, by Hangguang lu 龙华中路 598 弄正大乐城 6-204, 近船厂路 ( ) 78 December 2013 //

81 Soprano Hitting the high notes BY Jamie Barys Adding to their cache of F&B establishments named in homage to illicit activities, the owners of Kartel have gone gangster with Soprano an Italian restaurant whose chic interior and home style flavors would make the entire DiMeo crime family very proud. With floor-to-ceiling windows that open onto Wuding Lu s bustling restaurant and bar strip, Soprano incorporates romantic influences from the Apennine Peninsula. Rustic hewn tables are illuminated by candlelight, while the wooden walls hold shelves of shadowy, slightly sinister wine bottles and a blackand-white book collection worthy of Fellini. Happy hour on house wines and beers runs 6-8pm, just in time for dinner (for us non- Italians). Quaffable Trentonian Pinot Grigio (RMB40) is an absolute steal at buy-one-getone-free and pairs perfectly with the crostino misto appetizer (RMB48). Crunchy slices of toasted baguette are successful with fresh, simple toppings, like chopped cherry tomatoes whose flavors pop with the help of a slather of rich pesto and a julienned basil crown. We wish the goat s cheese option had come with honey, as promised, but the sleeper hit was fresh mozzarella that melted like a warm blanket over garlicky mushrooms. Insalata di rucola con pere (RMB68) showed restraint in its dressing a light trickle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil was all the peppery greens needed after being tossed with salty goat s cheese and succulent chunks of pan-fried chicken thigh. All the bells and whistles make this a big get for the price tag, and it is a great option for lunch in the area. The theme of affordability echoes throughout the menu; only one pizza tops out at more than RMB100, with the rest falling within a reasonable RMB78-88 zone. While the char-speckled crust could have been crispier, the price makes these pies worth savoring and a Reina (RMB78), laden with pungent homemade mozzarella, shingles of prosciutto, cremini mushrooms and a whisper of tomato sauce, wowed with its subtlety. While our first three dishes arrived in rapid order, we waited a solid 15 minutes for our lasagna (RMB78) though it was soon brought out after we mentioned its absence to our helpful waiter. It was worth the wait. The layers of spicy Bolognese, al dente pasta and melting mozzarella over a puddle of marinara sauce transported us to Tony Soprano s dinner table in one glorious bite proving that, while there may be a lot of big Italian dogs in town, there s still room to find new pleasures. // 993 wuding lu, by Jiaozhou lu 武定路 993 号, 近胶州路 BUFFET DINNER MENU Selection of starters from the buffet Oysters, Shrimp, Mussels, Sea Bass and Yellowtail Sashimi, Baby Pork etc. MAIN COURSE SELECTION Pizza Trifola Pizza Black truffle, mozzarella & mache leaves ********* Choice of Main Course ********* Veal fillet wrapped in bacon with Asparagus and King Prawns Argentina Buffet corner of dessert, fruit & cheese (16 different types of home made dessert) Coffee or tea Dinner Buffet Meal is not for sharing or take away 488 Rmb All prices are subject to 10% Service Charge IFC Pudong, 4/F, 8 Shiji Da Dao, near Lujiazui Huan Lu 世纪大道 8 号, 国金中心 IFC 商场 4 楼, 近陆家嘴环路 - phone: with WEEKEND 4 COURSES SET LUNCH MENU AND PROSECCO FREE FLOW VaBene salad Or Selection of mix cold cuts Or Carrot soup with bread croutons ******** Linguine with clams and chilli Or Maccheroni Mancini with Porcini and sausage in light tomato sauce Or Pizza Margherita ******** Pan seared seabass with citrus salad Or Pan seared veal tenderloin with mashed potato, mushrooms and marsala sauce ******** Fruit salad with sorbet Or Chocolate pudding with vanilla sauce 298 Rmb Xintiandi, North Block, Lane 181 Taicang Lu, near Madang Lu 太仓路 181 号, 新天地北里, 近马当路 - phone: November 2013 // 79

Covered in a brulee of melted sugar crust that eases into a chewy center, they prove a great snack with coffee though we would have preferred more crispness. There are also towering burgers (RMB58) literally so tall, you have to eat them layer by layer. To compound the modern vibe, every person is given a handheld television upon ordering, which runs commercials until your drinks are ready then it asks you kindly to retrieve them. There s no way to turn the sound off, by the way we tried. But the Wi-Fi is strong and the nooks, numerous, making Café Kacao a great place to work in comfort and minimal disturbance.

The odd names of the homemade sweets reflect the (we imagine) quirky nature of the owners. A simple mango mascarpone pudding (RMB28) is deemed Little Rabbit Monster* ( 小兔子妖怪 ) perhaps because its demure beige exterior could release a wild beast in all of us, intent on demolishing this creamy treat in record time.

There s also an array of sweets. Durian chiffon cake ( 榴莲戚风蛋糕三角, RMB23) is a favorite, a whole layer of fruit swaddled with mousse on top and cake below, the whole becoming a cheerful melt-in-your-mouth experience. There s even fried durian spring rolls ( 榴莲春意浓, RMB21/three) with hot crispy skin and frozen stuffing. bitter green tea cake (RMB26) is The Marvelous Green Cake ( 了不起的小青 ).

83 the find Ding Yuan Classy river dining By Tongfei Zhang Tucked away in the renovated warehouse of Wharf 1846, high-end Shanghainese restaurant Ding Yuan offers a luxurious environment that thoroughly outshines its humble exterior. Furnished in sleek wood from floor to ceiling and twisted trunk decorations that climb the walls, the venue offers 15 bright, spacious private rooms, seven of which boast a fantastic view of the Huangpu River and Pudong skyline. Echoing its smart decor, the fusion of Shanghai and Cantonese dishes on the menu caters to a select set of high-end consumers who have a fat wallet and a need to be wowed. Start your journey with an appealing dish of baked little fish (RMB88), which sees a school of fried anchovies brought hot to the table. Dunked in sticky, savory secret sauce, the sweet and crispy results are reminiscent of a local favorite, xunyu. The signature stewed pork with soy sauce (RMB168) aka hongshao rou also didn t let us down, despite there being loads of renditions around town. The streaky pork belly (taken from the section nearest the ribs) is the perfect balance of meat and fat, managing to be rich but not greasy beneath its sweet and sticky sauce. It shows that the kitchen has a masterful grasp of controlling temperature, and surely counts as a must-try dish if you re having guests in town. However, sauteed wagyu with BBQ sauce (RMB298) is a disappointment. Wagyu is supposed to impart a delicate beef flavor with gentle ribbons of fat, but there is so much heavy sauce that the meat loses its distinctness and comes across fat and oily a waste of money, as you could add any beef and it would taste the same. Tropical pudding with papaya (RMB38/person) is a nice surprise. Doused in creamy coconut milk, the mix of sago and fruit is so deliciously luscious that you ll find yourself wishing the bowl was bigger. While there are a variety of drinks, including baijiu and wines, we chose the refreshing and nourishing cucumber pear juice (RMB38/ glass, RMB168/pitcher) to help lighten the oft heavy fare. This may not be a great place for a casual family dinner, but Ding Yuan is certainly set to be a hotspot for private parties intent on showering guests with items to impress. // 3/F, warehouse 3, 601 waima lu, by Zhuxingmatou Jie 外马路 601 号三号库 3 楼, 近竹行码头街 ( ) December 2013 // 81

PITT Not Brad, but good Sneaking into a prime position on Donghu Lu, Karma feeds the area s appetite for worthy tipples sans overpowering beats. Taking up residence in a former clothing store, this small space offers six low sofas, a little bar and darkness deeper than King Tut s tomb (in spite of full length windows).

However, this new spot on Yongjia Lu strives to be so much more.

There s also a fun list of cocktails that aim to please. Fresh ingredients are the main draw, with cast players like ginger, lemon juice, passion fruit and mint making frequent appearances. Ginger float sparkling (RMB70) is a buoyant combination in a champagne glass the muddle of ginger-infused vodka, sparkling wine and fresh lime juice a good balance of sweet, spicy and effervescent. Going with the piquant theme, ginger old en Francais the new menu highlights gin and bourbon drinks that hark back to America in the 1800s and early 1900s. Women dressed in era-themed attire stand at the entrance, ushering new arrivals through black, floor-length velvet curtains towards the bar, where mix-masters in bowler hats dutifully attend to our needs. While run by the same management, service has certainly stepped up from its previous lackadaisical state. Drinks have also been revamped, tipping the price scale On the menu, you ll find a scant two cavas, starting at RMB40 for a glass of Covides Chenine Brut (RMB240/bottle). It is slightly sweet, lovely bubbly and easy for sipping. However, the list of about five red and white wines (RMB40-55/glass) proves more tantalizing, including a generous pour of smooth, full bodied Chilean Private Reserve Cosmo merlot (RMB45). There s also a full range of cocktails (RMB55-65) that tap more into the owner s Latin American fashioned (RMB65) is a pleasant sip, although rather a waste of good Makers Mark bourbon lost beneath an onslaught of caster sugar. There s even a cheeky fruit punch (RMB60) that mixes citrus vodka, green tea and seasonal fruit for an easy sip.

Since then, the innovative altruist has looked to our expat weekend habits for inspiration, creating Funday-wear to pay for materials on future trips.

She believes these tales will be encouraging for young minds to hear, and once she s finished the collection, she ll bring the little book of life lessons to distribute on her travels. I believe it s important to teach self-esteem to children and to enable creativity so they are empowered to work towards achieving everything they want and need in life. This is the catalyst where my life lessons originate, Watson says.

88 community WORLD CHRISTMAS CULTURES STRANGER THAN A STRANGER SLIDING DOWN YOUR CHIMNEY BY TREVOR MARSHALLSEA tiger father This family has big plans for Christmas. First we re going to euthanize Santa. Then we re going to hang out on a beach in Vietnam. It s probably time. I ve never been to Vietnam before. As for Santa, our eight-year-old, Lani, has started asking awkward questions, like Daddy, are you a liar? Ok, perhaps not that pointed, but the inevitable question about the North Pole s most famous resident came up over dinner last week. Since there was a six-year-old also at the table, I made the very clever parent move of telling Lani that we would talk about this later. I then winked at her and slashed my throat. Only with a finger, mind you. I don t find these parenting situations that troubling. But it is probably time we labeled as fiction this tale about an exotic place where lots of not very tall people work feverishly to make presents for the world s children. For one thing, everyone now knows that place is called China. For another, there are some other fantastic Santa-ish Christmas tales around the world. As citizens of expat-land s cultural melting pot, maybe we should try a few. There s the Russian one. Just to confuse things, Russia s Santa delivers presents not on Russian Christmas (January 7) but on New Year s Eve. He goes by the name of Ded Moroz. Now, I don t want to claim our Christmas is any jollier, or point at Russia s famous national vibe of melancholy, or misère de vivre, but by God their main spreader of joy sounds perilously like dead morose. Ded Moroz sounds to me like a heavy metal band. Or perhaps a stun grenade. Or a used condom. But the Internet said it meant Grandfather Frost. When you become a grandfather in Russia, straight away they just Dear Flemish people, the 19th century called they want their blackface back Ded Moroz sounds like a heavy metal band. Or perhaps a stun grenade. Or a used condom. But the Internet said it meant Grandfather Frost start calling you Ded. I can see walking sticks being shaken angrily everywhere. As for Moroz, there was confusion. For clarification I turned to my friend from the gym, Roman. He s not Russian but he is from Estonia (motto: it s not exactly Russia, but it ll do till we get some). As this large bald man and I sat naked in the sauna talking about Santa, I finally found understanding. Moroz is actually the term for when the temperature drops below about minus 10 Celsius. So really, Father Christmas in Russia is more like Grandfather F**king Freezing. Russia also has none of this North Pole business. Ded Moroz lives in Veliky Ustyug, a town of 32,000 people a few hundred kilometers northeast of Moscow. You can probably see him there in the summer doing whatever Russians do trimming his roses, running an export-import business, etc. I d heard the Dutch Christmas had a crazy twist. So I grabbed the first Dutch person I could find, a man called Fred at a friend s wedding, and asked him. It started with a shock. Well Santa Claus turns up with his whores, he said, as I spat my beer all over him. I liked this Santa better than ours already. I pictured him in a sleigh, jacked right up at the front, with a set of really big speakers booming out something a bit more gangsta than Jingle Bells. No, his horse, said Fred, more clearly. Still the story was astounding. The Dutch Sinterklass used to be a Greek bishop in Turkey sometime in the first millennium AD. He retired to take up the position of Dutch Santa, residing in Spain. No one is sure why he lives there, but my money s on the weather. Where would you rather live: the North Pole, Veliky Ustyug or Spain? Especially if you re the wrong side of 1,000. Usually, Sinterklass goes around with a much-loved colored man named Zwarte Piet Black Pete. He is usually depicted in all sorts of garb, like curly hair and made-up red lips, and performs functions like distributing candy. By the look of him it wouldn t surprise if his roles also include tap dancing and singing My Mammy (politically correct it ain t). In fact there are usually a handful of Black Petes, who since the mid 19th century have been called Sinters umm, servants. Early on, Dutch Santa and the Petes would turn up, and if children had been good he d reward them with presents. If they d been bad, they would be punished by getting no presents. They would also get a good kicking and a beating from Santa. If they were especially bad, a Pete would bundle them into a sack and they d be dragged back to Spain to a mysterious but presumably wretched fate. Since the 1950s, however, this tale has been softened up. Now if children are naughty Santa only pretends to give them a good kicking and beating. The Dutch story which is replicated in Belgium is so bizarre it has caught the attention of more and more people in recent years. These include people from the United Nations High Commission for Human Rights. They couldn t help noticing the story might be a wee bit racist, especially since people playing the Petes in Christmas parades wear blackface makeup. Hopefully the Petes will soon be retired, replaced by a more universally loved breed of Christmas helper. For as the old saying goes, you re alright as long as you ve got ya elf. // Trevor Marshallsea was a foreign correspondent in Beijing in the 1990s and returned a decade later.

89 health Winter Skin Care Top tips to stop you cracking up Shanghai s cold winter is finally here. As the moisture seeps out of the air, our skin begins to naturally lose the vitality it enjoyed throughout summer and fall. But keeping your skin healthy and fresh is possible by following a few simple tips. Change your products Choose a rich, fragrance-free soap for everyday body cleansing. If your skin is dry, it is important to lock water into the skin directly after you take a shower or wash your face, so moisturize when skin is still damp. If your face remains stubbornly dry, your lotion may be at fault. Try a heavier cream on pesky dry patches. For other parts of your body, petroleum jelly is good, especially for the feet. Rub only a small amount into the skin as the product is greasy. Wind-swept lips Dry, cracked or bloody lips are just the worse. Fortunately there is a simple solution: keep lipstick or Chapstick in your pocket at all times and apply as needed. Also, drinking lots of water will help you stay hydrated. Avoid the winter sun as it can also harm your lips. If you feel your lips starting to lose moisture, don t lick them! It may feel better for a few seconds, but it only speeds up the process. Give yourself a hand Your hands will probably suffer throughout the cold months. Often exposed to the elements and with poor blood circulation, they easily dry out. Moisturizing is essential. Washing your hands often will help protect you and others around you from contracting or spreading cold and flu germs. An unfortunate side effect of hand washing in winter is it increases dryness, so keep that moisturizer nearby. Not too hot a shower Hot showers are a staple for many throughout winter, but you are better off if you keep them short. After a while the high water temperature will begin to draw moisture from your skin and strip away your skin s natural oils go with lukewarm if you can stand it. Aim for five minutes under the shower head, but absolutely no longer than 10 minutes. Winter sunscreen seriously Just because you aren t on a beach in blazing hot weather doesn t mean you will avoid sunburn. Just ask any mountain climber. In snowy conditions the sun is even more dangerous due to its rays reflecting off light surfaces. If you plan to be out and about, bring a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher and reapply every two hours. Humidify As we hibernate in our homes with the heat turned up, the warm air sucks moisture from the air and your skin. A humidifier will restore that balance, so put one in your bedroom while you sleep and any other room in which you spend long periods of time. // Dr. Guo Chunying is a dermatologist at Shanghai United Family Hospital & Clinics ( advertorial FROM HEARTLAND TO MOTHERLAND INDIANA WESLEYAN UNIVERSITY MBA PROGRAM FILLS A NICHE Foreigners lucky enough to work in China for a year or two will cherish their time overseas and mark it as a highlight of their career. Many multinational firms require a foreign posting prior to being promoted to the high rungs of the corporate ladder. An advanced degree is another requirement for career advancement, especially an MBA. However, until recently, there have been few options for foreigners to earn an MBA while working in China. This all may change soon, as Indiana Wesleyan (IWU) is now offering its MBA degree in China. Most Chinese universities have business schools, but the programs are delivered in a traditional, residential format. Although local universities are gaining good reputations around the world, most still lack Western accreditation, so a foreign degree might not be recognized by employers and universities back in the West. IWU has partnered with Zhejiang University, the largest university in China, to deliver the MBA. IWU instructors teach business courses and ZJU professors teach short courses such as consumer behavior, culture and economics in China. Students earn both a degree from IWU and a professional certificate from ZJU. Unlike most MBA programs in China, the IWU/ZJU program is designed for English-speaking expats who work full-time. Each course starts with a three-day weekend in beautiful Hangzhou with IWU and ZJU professors. Students complete their remaining coursework through a distance model. It is also a cohort-based program, meaning the same group of students completes the courses together. There s no need to switch to a student visa, as expats can continue with their current visa status. In each spring and fall, a new group of about 15 students will begin, with a degree program completed in about two years. Students who leave China before the end of the program can finish their degree through IWU s online or face-to-face programs in the US. December 2013 // 87

104 listings Open Door Gianluca Piaggi Freshness, simplicity and olive oil! six months ago, gianluca piaggi became the executive chef of shanghai marriott hotel pudong east. Discussing his wealth of rich culinary knowledge, which stretches back 25 years, gianluca shares his understanding about cooking with us. What motivated you to become a chef? i used to help around in my parent s restaurant. But my first kitchen experience was gained in a hotel training program in college. then i found that i loved working with all types of ingredients and i decided to become a chef. How do you get ideas for new dishes? i would say the customers feedbacks. especially at casalingo. people come here to dine in an inviting, family-friendly restaurant. i want to introduce traditional homemade italian dishes to make sure they work right with the atmosphere here. How would you define authentic Italian flavor? to me, authentic means traditional. it should be the classic flavors that have been kept by and passed down by generations. that kind of flavor is always comprised of fresh ingredients and olive oil. But they vary region to region. Does it concern you that authentic flavors may not suit the local palate? well, i do have a bit of concern about that. But as a chef, i don t want to go too far from the origin either. it is essential to seek a balance inbetween. What do you feel like being an Italian Chef in China? Before coming to shanghai six months ago, i worked in five-star hotels in guangzhou for more than six years. i used to worry about culture adaption, but cooking has never been an issue. i am very happy with what i can find on the market. What would you recommend on the menu? well, pizzas and pastas are best-sellers. personally, i would suggest merluzzo. the ingredients are simple; you take the tender part of a cod fish and some vegetables. pan fry the fish, making sure it s not over cooked. then, i stew vegetables in an italian style that works well with the tender texture of the cod fish. // casalingo, shanghai marriott pudong east, 15 xinjinqiao lu, by hongfeng lu 新金桥路 15 号, 近红枫路 ( , boiled soup and and chef specials. 2/F, 1525 Dingxi Lu, by Changning Lu ( ) Daily 11.30am-2.30pm; 5.30pm-10pm 定西路 1525 号 2 楼, 近长宁路 YUE A Chinese restaurant offering all local favorites and regional specialties plus authentic Cantonese cuisine which creates a warm and unique dining experience.
