One of the most “visited” places in Shanghai is the famous fake market. There you will find pretty much anything you want: watches, bags, shoes, headphones, or any kind of electronic devices.

Of course, as its name suggest, everything is fake. That way, you will be able to bargain and manage to pay much lower than the originals product’s price, but again, it is all fake so don’t expect any warrantee or for a refund in case of a malfunction. You get what you’ve paid for, not one bit more.

This place is famous for its fake products at its beyond cheap prices, however nowadays we witness more and more cases of fake merchandise sold online as original and authentic brands.

For those looking to work in China, getting a work visa is of absolute importance. The Chinese laws require that any foreign national must obtain proper approval or documentation in order to work in the country. Violation of the laws can result in severe penalties: fines of up to RMB 500 a day (for overstaying a visa), deportation, or even worse, imprisonment.

Chinese work visa is known as Z visa. They are issued by Chinese embassies and consulates to non-Chinese citizens traveling to China for posting or employment. The Z visa is the only valid work visa.

What is the opposite expression of a ´silver lining´? The dark side? On the other side of the world, Brazil and other countries are enjoying the patriotic enthusiasm surrounding the FIFA World Cup 2014. While the streets also flood with many demonstrators who criticize the fortune invested on stadiums and FIFA related infrastructure when the population suffers from lack of food, clean water, and reliable transportation amongst other basic needs. Meanwhile, right here in Shanghai on metro line 1, a modern recurring tragedy has taken place.  This event occurred on the same day as the first kick-off the World Cup. A young man was slapping an old man’s face, followed by kicking in his stomach in the subway despite the man´s age and state (a beggar). It has been semi-officially reported that this young man had donated money to the old man but soon regretted his generous gestures. He asked the beggar for the money back defending himself with “a professiona

Once a year, when the Dragon Boat Festival comes around, the rice dumpling (zong zi) is a preferred food in the local gourmet streets. It’s a bit embarrassing that this “popular” food is not as welcomed or encouraged in western countries. Germany, France, Spain and other 23 countries reject “zong zi” this food from mainland China coming into their domestic food markets in the official announcement due to doubtful “unknown” ingredients. On the other hand, several localized “Chinglish” phrases are successfully collected into American online Urban Dictionary, and it brings up a sudden hot attention and widely accepted by worldwide readers.
