Two interesting businesses that I'd like to highlight:

  • The kebab place in the outdoor back walkway area of Grand Gateway in Xujiahui. I used to go there all the time back when I was single and working at Melody. They were closed for a while, and then Jodi and I found them opened when we went to see a movie yesterday so we went there for dinner tonight. RMB 18 or so for a plain single kebab, 28 for the combo with fries and a salad, and 8 more for a can of soda. Jodi didn't like it, but it's definitely a place I'd take a friend.
  • The Scholastic English program at the Super Brand Mall in Lujiazui. There are a few English training places lodged together near the back of the Grand Gateway on the 7th floor, and one of them is a newly opened club for kids that has a relationship with Scholastic Books. That has allowed them to outfit several classrooms in American elementary school style, and keep a big library of classic American kids' books. If only they sold books... perhaps they could be convinced to do so.

That kebab place is great. John Pasden took my wife and I there. My wife didn't seem to like it either, though its food doesn't seem like it wouldn't fit the average Chinese's tastes...
