This year I spent my Christmas holidays and New Years celebration in Shanghai. 今年的圣诞假期和跨年节庆我都是在上海度过的。 3 iVZyZdu-ISB8ZIbWUvcmPb8r7mPtnEfLnoWxoX1Knv8 uwWYN489PQMq0FzOVs9j3jc1K63PEe8aymJawhC_vzs As I visited I could see the huge globalization in Shanghai. Almost all world-wide brands have gathered in Shanghai and you can see the growth in the city. 来到这里后,我目睹了上海如今国际化的巨变。几乎全世界的品牌都汇聚到了这里,您能亲眼看到这座城市的日新月异。 2 1QJcaGSrVRQjRPMFtFBg3kkiI7ZsB010sRME7qThhb8 qNwAbBkJPobIAiKXASsQHHUgohPUOsiQBAkISf6JJFc,wvX7I08iv0go-gG7h5hxoWebE0VPgWWx75-6aEpGKs4 NGwfOPzx69KC4y_vj-_9kHfLBpQlJip0eHzKwUgCPQE,awPtUSP4bU0VadMNJCb4BS0Hmpc06OA-1SuB32pZeQQ There has been much powerful and sustainable development in Shanghai. It made me reflect on HSBC’s slogan, “The world’s local bank”. For Shanghai it is “local globalization.” 上海的发展翻天覆地、经年不衰。这种势头让我想起了汇丰银行的口号“世界的本土银行”。套用到上海上,就是“本土的全球化”。 jd3fCVBGFHYjE1CRNgVpj43tC5tw_gLBfi7X27AkioQ Shanghai 02 During this trip I was so impressed by Shanghai’s Uber service which is incredibly amazing especially in a busy city like Shanghai. Within minutes, the car you order arrives on time. The cars are clean and well serviced and the drivers are very friendly. 这次旅途中,我对优步出租车在上海的业务也印象颇深,尤其在这样一座繁忙的大都市里,仅需几分钟,叫的车就能准时到达,着实让人惊喜。车辆的清洁程度很高,司机也很友善,给到客人们高品质的服务。 W7lh-E7wR40mc8tKyEeVkxJFHyC_Yfc50CI_QpFNnI8 HPFREi7CV8n7h_AgAIxJ9xDYX7Wlz4kg5hQeBygTSdo,QdiI1iAEKIFkot-4bVa6uaylkpIxj768SbmmOICTB64 Only thing that made me sad was the PM 2.5 that was over 500 that created a smog over the clear sky of Shanghai. I made an ironical question that is "where is Orient Pearl Tower" , while I was standing against the same glass of the 41 floor of shanghai bund center and looking at the same view toward to Pu Dong. 唯一让我失落的是现在上海的PM2.5指标超过了500,让这座城市原本清澈的天空笼罩在浓浓雾霾之下。我甚至还问了一个可笑却无奈的问题,“东方明珠去哪儿了?”,而此时的我正站在上海外滩中心的41楼,透过它的玻璃窗向浦东鸟瞰同一片景色。 Shanghai 05 Shanghai 04 Shanghai 06 The air of Shanghai is seriously polluted and really terrible, but I still have a dream and high hopes for this city...... 上海的空气受到严重的污染,目前境况堪忧,然而我仍然对这座城市怀揣梦想,寄予厚望…… PTjoT9A5niCEaGdjx6mEIXmm2ROYKE-1PhGhhd0uGpo,XtjkHLRzqvwENPjAY8EWLXrlF61EEmXqdwabaSlOq5c,cyHZSfx492dG8r8GDSTnbPnMymmjGGA2XAKgq7YBvWg 5 I know that as Shanghai grows, it will become powerful and sustainable. I pray for the Shanghai's local globalization. 我深知,上海发展的脚步不会停歇,它必将日益发达强大。我为上海本土的国际化而祈福。 angela-signature2-a-moved-out
