I took this photograph because it reminded me of the DHL advert. They do a lot of transporting this way. Not only do they carry bamboos for scaffolding, they carry boxes of goods and furniture along the streets of Shanghai.
While walking towards Xintiandi one night, we heard this lady singing in French and wondered which live stage the performance was at. It turned out to be a CD vendor on a motorbike, blasting the music on this old custom-assembled speaker. The sound system was just amazing. I had to stop and buy one cd, okay I bought 2.
Check out the Christmas tree outside Simply Life where I got some cute magnets of local Chinese paintings. They also had these beautiful bone china ceramics by a Beijing-based artist. Lots of beautiful stuff there.
