10 years. It took Kwai Lun-mei 10 years to walk from Blue Gate Crossing, to crown herself with the title of Best Actress of Golden Horse Award with Girlfriend, Boyfriend.

“I really love film acting! I will keep on acting, harder!” Five years ago, Kwai made the remark while receiving her award for Best Leading Actress at the Golden Horse Awards for her portrayal in the film Girlfriend, Boyfriend.

In Shanghai, do you know how much can the maximum per capita consumption of a dinner set be? Excluding some low-attendance senior private clubs,what I can tell is: RMB 8888.

However, such a meal is still very hard to come by. If you don't make a reservation one month ahead of schedule, you won't even get to know the address of where the dinner is taking place. About this, there are various comments from the society, but among them there is one kind of voice that attracts my attention. The voice says that the intention of those people who are willing to pay such a high price for a meal is not just for eating.

The countryside, Eastern aesthetics and the underlying emotional interaction between them, have always been the motifs in ancient descriptions of a dream dwelling.
The poetic idealism in the Imperial Palace, represented by designer Guo Ming, was supplemented by a touch of the attitude of modern living. Henceforth, at the core of a metropolis, a new residential masterpiece was born, hidden behind the buzzing streets.

“The spiritual part that branched from our fixed life, needs a space like theatre to hold our endless imagination,” said Wang Anyi.

For some old Shanghainese, the theatre is a place as familiar as old friends. Down the streets with all those London Planes, there had been good old times when the locals would slowly take a stroll after dinner, walk all the way to the nearest theatre, and settle themselves to a long expected film or drama for a lasting inspiration that would recall their memories of some wild and free fantasy from time to time.
