I live in the 19th floor in one of the few towers of Luwan district – the former French Concession – sharing a flat with Kenneth, a Singapourian guy (owner of Manifesto, "Shanghai’s sexiest menswear store") and Yoko, a Japanese workaholic.

Please notice the empty area at the bottom left of the picture. This was an incredible flower market when I moved in this flat, and will probably be my worst nightmare in a few weeks, when construction work will start.
