That’s Shanghai’s Best Of Shanghai 2009 Awards


Hi everyone. Sorry there have not been some new posts recently because I have been very sick. I am getting better now and will post more soon.

I recently receive this email from Helen who wrote about chinaSMACK in That’s Shanghai last year about the 2009 Best of Shanghai :

Fauna is a mysterious young Shanghainese girl who lives in the only place a Shanghainese person would ever want to live: Shanghai. In mid-2008, she started chinaSMACK to combine her hobby of browsing Chinese internet forums with her goal of improving her English. Through her tireless translation of popular Chinese internet news and phenomenon, her English has apparently gotten dramatically better. At least, reading and writing-wise. Unfortunately, she's still not confident enough to have written this bio, about herself, by herself.
