Tired in Shanghai

The recent Shanghai Daily Article We’re tired, say office workers caused some discussion about the pressure level of office workers in Shanghai.

FEELING tired is the top complaint of local office workers, followed by worries over their jobs and emotional problems, according to an online survey.

And the following finding put a smile on my face:

Global travelers and artists were considered the people with the most enviable lives and the survey found that the best sources of happiness and satisfaction came from going to places they had never been before and staying with family or people they loved.

Exactly. At least I feel the same – to go to places I have never been before is one of the key happiness source I can imagine, and the other one, staying with family members or people I love is also a great source. I want to say, at least the survey revealed exactly what I feel.

Am I Tired?

Sure. I am pretty tired these days after the Spring Festival. The fast pace of Shanghai drives people crazy, and some people even escaped to villages (Do Chinese Move to Small Cities)

YouTube Blocked in Shanghai

Just got message on twitter, and then confirmed by myself: YouTube.com was blocked here in Shanghai (I am using China Telecom ADSL). When this happens, you know there are either conferences going on in Beijing, or something happens. Hmm… It is not news at all for any content site to be blocked, especially user generated content site like YouTube.

Tera Wellness Club

Tera Wellness Club is a premium gym. It is building a new gym near my home, and to be completed very soon. @dianakuan said on Twitter:

Shanghai tweeps – How do you excercise? Gyms and yoga studios here seem way overpriced.

I do agree – over priced gym + yoga is a characteristic of Shanghai. But anyway, to have a new option near my home is a good thing – I can use not to use it, but I cannot choose if it does not exist.
