I had been heading East during the early part of my school and career : onto Los Angeles, Manhattan and Paris . it wasn’t until after I had achieved my ultimate dream that I reverted to a now-booming continent : China just across the Strait, West from the Capital of SEOUL . but before Hong Kong : first stop was their cosmopolitan city long before, in ShangHai .

Yet you cannot help but recognise the humble, rigid culture it grew-up on, as a hair-dressing salon employees gather in front of their shop at opening time for daily excercise and sing-along .. in what would seem like police uniform elsewhere with lines divided by sex .
