Well, compare with New York City, Shanghai still need to work out on its soft power.

Take a look at the Iphone 4S there, it was unbearable.

This is how city vs city wars start.

Once a person reaches a certain age, he or she should realize that one's favorite is not another person's favorite.

It's the Huangpu River, the main river in the city (there is one other minor natural river, Suzhou Creek, as well as a series of man made canals throughout the city) that splits the city of Shanghai into the eastern half (Pudong) and the western half (Puxi). It flows through the city and then joins the Yangtze River just as it empties into the East China Sea.

I guess the picture is not from this weekend, poor visibility today and yesterday, but the cranes were still visible.

Does anyone know where was this photo taken from exactly? Is it some rooftop bar or other public location?
