“I think that I shall never see A poem lovely as a tree.” - Joyce Kilmer, Trees & Other Poems
Between every two Faguo Wuton trees there is a door leading to a new way of life. Here we like to call it Haipai (海派) which literally translates to “Shanghai style”. The rebellious, mutinous, and distinctive “East meets West” culture that is so ubiquitous to this hodge-podge of a city. The term’s origins date back to 1920, coined by a group of Beijing writers to criticize this new cultural manner of paintings and dramas. And yet, over time its meaning has changed into one of the most darling styles in the country! Haipai is wearing those charming blue plaid pajamas out in public for everyone to see. It’s the transformation of the traditional qipao (旗袍) into a shorter more fitted colorful garment! It’s the treasured short stories we find in between Sinan and Fuxin Zhong Road. 
It is often said the ocean absorbs the flow of hundreds of rivers. This is the cherished way of living in Shanghai. Darling, you are a work of art!
