Job hunting in Shanghai

Posted by – May 30, 2006

I received a call from a friend in Ningbo today. I was a little surprised that she wants to come to shanghai to seek a job. Whether it’s just a joke or not, nonetheless, I want to say some words about it, because I have been full of sense of job hunting in shanghai and have suffered impressed of it.


A Special Day

Posted by – May 18, 2006

I suddenly find that the pronunciation discrimination between British English and American English is so distinct that I can hardly understand the English spoken by a guy from Europe when having dinner with him today. Maybe I have listened to too much American English or Chinese English. To avoid today’s embarrassed situation, I think I should choose some British English material to listen from now on. Also I find that there is lots of things to learn. Anyway, I am too naive now.


Happy Birthday to Myself

Posted by – May 16, 2006

Remeber when I was still a child, Mom and Dad celebrated my birthday.
Remeber when I went to school,friends give me wishes and gifts on the special day.
Now I am in the office, Neither special program, nor candle and cakes.
I am 23 years old now, too young to some and over-the-hill to the others. To myself, I am not exactly where I supposed to be.
I am proud of myself for the goals I have achieved.
I am proud of myself for the courage of love even when I am afraid.
I am proud of myself for the passion I bring to life.
Life is not easy, but I am still searching the way to live my life with more grace and love.
Thanks to my mom who gives the life to me, and
Happy Birthday to you, Zhu Xinquan.


Back from Ningbo

Posted by – May 14, 2006

I am on the train back to Shanghai now. It’s almost one year since my last trip to Ningbo. It’s a very wonderful weekend and memorable trip to me this time. Thanks to Haidi’s hospitality and congratulations to him for getting the admission to graduate school. We all don’t know what time we will meet again.

It was a casual catch-up, having supper and singing together. It has been a while since last time we were so crazy and drunk! 

Now the party is over, and I am looking forward to the next time we get together. 

However, I missed a telephone interview from Morgen Stanley. I received the call when I was about to get on the train and my mobile phone’s battery ran out. I hope they will call me later. Finger crossed.

Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum

Posted by – May 3, 2006

Yesterday, I took Jessica to the newly opened Shanghai Madame Tussaud’s. Madame Tussaud’s famous waxwork exhibition was originally established in Paris in 1770 and moved to London in 1802. The Shanghai branch is located on the 10th floor of the New World Department Store on Nanjing Road. It is not a surprise that the place was very crowded. After waiting in a line for a ticket for about half an hour, finally we got into this wax museum.

However, the place was amazing. I have never been to such a wax museum before. The 75 wax figures initially installed were so vivid, and more to be added according to the guide book. I took pictures with “people” I would not be able to meet in my lifetime, I think.

The Adult ticket cost 125 RMB (15.6 USD).
