Speaking

At the beginning when I just moved in Shanghai, I didn’t have much friends and money so I just choose work. As the time went by, I had more money so I wanted to recognise Shanghai and I had more friends here. So I had more and more activities to take part in, it is often I went outside. When I was in Shanghai about 5 to 6 years, I was still young at that time, I found Shanghai is very interesting, have many good things to look for. I usually don’t live at home on weekends. I usually go outside to attend some exhibitions or go out to go walk and see the view.
