Shanghai Mart Post Office, Shanghai (上海 世贸大厦邮政所)

I happened upon another post office earlier today while visiting Shanghai Mart, which in its proper Chinese name should be known as the World Trade Building or the World Trade Shopping Center (“世贸商城”). Built in 1999, presumably in anticipation of China’s accession to the World Trade Organization and its subsequent opening-up, the complex still retains …

Tianshan Rd. Post Office, Shanghai (上海 天山路邮政支局)

Featuring: Postal vans, postal electric bicycles, EMS logistics and stamps. As promised, a second go at Shanghai’s postal facilities the day after my first, this time the postal branch office (“支局”) on Tianshan Rd. Being a “branch” and not a “station,” it is visibly more spacious than its Zhongshan Rd. West counterpart, equipped, other than …

Zhongshan Rd. West Post Office, Shanghai (上海 中山西路邮政所)

Well well well, to duly follow up on my earlier post introducing some of Shanghai’s more idiosyncratic postal facilities, today I went to one that is decidedly commonplace — a postal station (albeit titled still as a “post office”) on the section of Changning Rd between Zhongshan Rd. West and Kaixun Rd., which is entirely …

Postal Facilities of Shanghai — A Very Basic Introduction

Any habitual reader of my blog (a species that I suspect does not exist) must know of my interest in things postal, as my quests to several DC post offices hopefully have made clear. However, since this interest grew out of my visit to the National Postal Museum, ever since when I have yet to …

First Stamps of the Year — Constantinople to Danzig to China

*Originally published on another blog of mine, Miscellaneous Notes, now republished here with slight edits and modifications* Alas, while the USPS and its army of postal workers take a well-deserved break on Jan. 1, a postal tourist knows no reprieve, and — as not one of DC’s post offices is open — went back to …

Double Reduction, What Do The Tutors Say?

This is one of the assignments I did for “The Culture of Journalism” at Brandeis University by Professor Ann Silvio during Fall 2021. We were to pick one issue and conduct interviews on it. It was a few months after China announced its “double reduction” policy, putting a stop to the expansion of fee-based extracurricular …

中国乳制品行业研究

这是我之前几周在汇添富实习时完成的一项行业研究,简单考察了一下中国乳制品市场的构成、竞争、发展前景和成本分布,以及相关的上下游产业。不构成投资建议也不代表汇添富基金或其他相关人员的意见。 This is an industry research I conducted during my internship at CUAM, in which I explored the competitive landscape, future prospects, costs, as well as the overall supply chain of the Chinese dairy industry. I wish I could attach an English translation of this study, just like I did with the two earlier posts, …

China’s Foreign-Related Legal Services Market

[This is my English translation of the previous post] This is the second major article I wrote during my internship at Intelligeast; posted here is the same draft that was published by its official WeChat account. UPDATE: In the paragraph concerning the WTO dispute over the export of steel fasteners, note that AllBright Law represented …

Legal Services Market of Hainan

[This is my own translation of my earlier post] This is one of the two articles I wrote during my internship at Intelligeast. Note that this post is my own final draft and is slightly different from the version published by Intelligeast’s official WeChat account. Should disputes arise, the WeChat version shall prevail. Again, I …
