If you want the softness of a woman you'll have to be very patient. Her raw femininity with both blessings and liabilities. She can drive you crazy, to the extent that you might wonder why you even bother. The demands for her maintenance require a crew of hundreds. Her upkeep burns a hole in the municipal budget. And when your family and friends tell you to give it up; trade her in for something newer and shinier, your heart lurches with indecision. But after all is said and done, when you come home and watch the flaky Shanghai snow falling gently on her stately eaves and dignified facades, her faded awning over bright rows of fruit and fish, her smooth paved streets, and her now-quiet river, which once launched a thousand rowboats laden with produce and trade, you remember exactly why you hang on. She balances her emotions and her men on a thin line; don't leave her hanging. [Alexia Kalteis & Loo Ching Ling 吕晶琳]
