We are coasting towards the end of 2015 and are ready to welcome 2016 with open arms.
It's time to ponder the past year as well as the city that has kept us company all along. The city is witness to our happiness and sorrows, to our struggles, to our happy weekends spent with friends, to our grouses about smoggy days, to the release of some of the box office hits like "Monster Hunt" and "Monkey King: Hero Is Back", and to the Disneyland's progress. Shanghai is a fast-paced city. In 2016, what Shanghai will serve up?
