  1. Happy Birthday. It is the same day as my partner’s, Robin, 罗彬. He will be so happy to know he shares his birthday with you, because I pass on lots of your blog posts about Shanghai. We are eating birthday cake for breakfast and watching a Chinese

    movie and imagining that we are in China. It is raining outside, but our imaginary Chinese world is much sunnier.

  2. Every year I think for sure I will send you a “Happy Birthday” message before you post about it…and every year (so far) I have missed doing that. Shame on me!

    I hope you have a wonderful day, feel well-celebrated, and are able to enjoy many many more such celebrations in the years to come!

  3. I was reading the website of the restaurant where you celebrated your birthday, to my surprise the restaurant features “French Concession” as a selling point. Since the Shanghai public concession has been abolished since last government, is people today still fond of the past history or they prefer the infrastructures left by the foreigners before the war?

  4. Jian Shuo,

    I wish I knew it was your birthday, as I was seeing you the day before it. Anyway, happy 33rd.
