amekurin: You can use lemon for nail polish! After use all the juicy part of lemon, peel the skin of lemon. Scrub nail with white side of lemon skin, then wash out by water. You can keep healthy and shiny nail.
eddie10: :) How about more review of factory canteen food items? Been to many a factories and partake in canteen lunches around Shanghai, I always appreciated the bits of healthy food that appears on my tray - like yoghurt drink, pickled turnips and seasonal fruits.
hjt84: Bellagio and Charmant are the same group i believe which is why their shaved ice is awesome in both places! Also a good option is Aniseed, either the main one in Xintiandi or the smaller cafe one in Xintiandi Style.
narsfweasels: I toatlly agree - Foreigners (because "Foreign" is a country) definitely need to check for outmoded, completely stupid and paranoid policies beforehand.
In fact, I think I'm going to start a business producing laminated wallet-sized cards for Foreigners (I once found "Foreign" on a globe, it was a pretty large country) filled with useful phrases labelled numerically with Chinese and Foreign (it's only one language, after all) translations on it.
The first phrase will be "Hello, sir or madam! I am from Foreign, do you have any ridiculous, out of date and chronically pig-headed policies that apply to me? I am only asking because apparently I need to man up."
editor_nick: Nothing to do with social media. It's simple: parental pressure for marriage is not yet decreasing. It likely will in 10, 20+ years, but hasn't yet. So people still marry without living together or knowing each other or themselves.
Divorce is also no longer the social tigma it was in the past, and when there's a social problem here, they usually act out on it in extreme and dramatic ways. So eventually all parties agree (the actual husband and wife, but the main protagonists, their parents and family) to divorce in order to get the hassles out the way ... and find another person to quickly marry instead.
hjt84: I've been ordering from Gracie's (and it's previous incarnation) for a while now on Sherpas and Mealbay - the lemon almond sorbet is delish and reminds me of the lemon ice i grew up eating in my seaside home town.
