Faces of people in Shanghai

Yes, I am still in Shanghai. I will be here for the next three weeks.. I missed home and would like to get back home as soon as possible.

The weekend is here again. The weather forecast that it will rain today but the meteorological department was WRONG. It did not rain. But then sun was not shinning brightly and the sky was foggy. I went on a journey to Puxi and managed to capture some shoots people on the streets of The Bund and Nanjing Road.

The Children

The children in China are the jewel to their parents because each family is only allowed to have one child. It is a rare scene to see a pregnant lady walking on the street in Shanghai. I was informed that the legal age to get married is 24 and once they get married they must register themselves at the family planning board where they will be made known when they can proceed to make a family.

These photos were shoot at The Bund where the parent brought them here for a visit. I cannot tell whether the they are residing in Shanghai or in Shanghai for their holidays. But all of them look really happy.

The Underprivileged

I managed to spot a few beggars on the streets on Shanghai. It is a rare sight as the Government here would take care of those underprivileged ones.

The Pretty

I need not say much about these picture, they speak for themselves.

The Famous one

Guess who is he? Jacky Chan. I caught him in Nanjing Road. Well, its not actually him in person but his "wax" twin. Shanghai has its own version of Madame Tussauds where the "residents" are famous Chinese singers and actors.

The Artistic

A bunch of youngster who were at The Bund sketching the buildings in the area/

The Visitors

There are so many people in Shanghai. 13 million people live in Shanghai not counting those who comes to Shanghai for their holidays and work (like me). Ocean of people at The Bund and Nanjing Road.

There are many leng lui in Shanghai. You will be turned on by their looks and their dressing. Make sure your wife is not around when you look at them.

The kids are looking very cute. With such weather in Shanghai, their rosy cheeks will stand out unlike ours which have been tanned!!
