Shanghai

Saturday, June 26, 2021

It was when I watched Ang Lee's 2010 film Lust, Caution that I first grew fascinated with Shanghai. It's the history, the glamour, and the mystery of the city depicted in the movie that got me. I wanted right then to visit the place, but I never had the chance to do so. I forgot all about it until recently when I started watching a Chinese series on Netflix that's set in Shanghai. The show was so successful in showing the city's charms that I can't help but be enticed. However, no matter how tempting Shanghai—or any place for that matter—is, most of us still cannot travel. So for now I will content myself with reliving past trips and dreaming of future ones. l will just stare at the fridge magnet of Shanghai that D gave me and imagine that I'm there with him admiring the city's skyline.
