Exigent Shanghai Celebration

Exigent Shanghai Celebration (41 of 96)

Exigent Shanghai is officially open for business! We just threw our grand opening celebration at the new studio (don’t miss all the pics; Facebook no worky through the Great Firewall of China). People came from far and wide to celebrate with us, including Garland’s entire family.  I miss them so much and it was great to see his wife and all the kids.

Exigent Shanghai Celebration (54 of 96)We started with a studio open house with snacks and drinks, and then had a ceremonial unveiling of our brushed-steel logo in the lobby after some speeches by Garland and our primary outside investor. The mood was very excited and upbeat as we laid out our plans for global domination.

Exigent Shanghai Celebration (76 of 96) After some more mingling we moved on to dinner at a nice hotel. Paul talked a little more about the company and the people while George and Sarah continued to translate everything into Chinese (they had been doing this all day). We ate and schmoozed until about 8 PM and then called it a night!

Well, except for Paul and I. This IS Shanghai, afterall.

Food, fun and movie nights!

Pics from the weekend and midweek, hanging out with the friends! I introduced a bunch of new people to sushi @ Tamura on Saturday, and they in turn showed me to a good time at a dive bar near Connaught Place. It had a hallway made entirely of mirrors. And was awesome. Tonight was my first trip to a new Expat Movie Night, which turned out to be particularly relaxing due to great weather and a nice breeze on the rooftop. We watched the controversial Indian movie “Fire“, which is about two lesbian lovers married to sub-par husbands who are brothers (making them sisters-in-law). It has no singing and dancing, plenty of on-screen kissing, and bare breasts in a sex scene, and was made around 1998. I’m not kidding! It’s got to be a conspiracy to bring down the Indian culture from within. Canada.
