It is the city where my father and my grandfather and my ancestors lived; it is the city where I am now in love with.
The very first time that I set foot on Shanghai a couple years ago, I immediately fell in love with it.
“I like it here! I love it!” I exclaimed.
“You lil traitor! You’ve never lived here yet and you just came from the city you were born and grew up in!” teased my husband.
But hey, I have in my veins the blood of a Shanghai native.
And finally, after all these years I’ve come back to embrace this part of me, of who I am.
Shanghai, my city, well, among my cities, that is. I love thee.
