It’s the year of Italy in China, actually also the year of Russia and the Year of the British Poems in the Shanghai subway, but I digress.

From the Year of Italy in […]

Wishful Thinking | Opinions Shanghai Daily

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2006

Three opinions in todays Shanghai Daily. Up to you whether you agree with me or with them:

A female friend once said that she doesn’t want to get married yet (she’s living together) as the pressure on becoming pregnant right away after the big day would be too big.
