Guytai Yangshan Deep Sea Port Trip

“On Thursday, 18 guytais piled into three vans to pay a visit to Yangshan, the deepwater (and island) half of Shanghai’s port (which, collectively with the non-deepwater bit on the mainland, is the biggest in the world). Thanks to Maersk, our host, we saw 16 berths stretched over 5.3 km created by filling in the space in and around a small archipelago collectively called Xiaoyang, as well as the 3-km extension.

Factory visit at Delviel

On Thursday, 5 September 2013, 22 guytais pushed the northern limits of Shanghai to visit Delviel, a cosmetics accessories manufacturer. After a short lecture from husband-and-wife proprietor/management team Arthur Wang and Charlene Zhang, we got a gander at about 70 folks producing the cases, pouches, sieves, and puffs which most buyers of the world's high-end cosmetics--Dior, Guerlain, Chanel, etc.--get. The tour wrapped with an on-site meal--and best of all, each guytai got a free sample!

2013 F1 Practice

Shanghai F1, Shanghai, China

On April 12, eight guytais and a bunch of their kids (it being SAS’s parent-teacher-conference day) visited the annual Friday pre-F1 practice. Besides paying a scalper a lower rate (than the proper CNY80 ticket) to let us in with his three-day tickets (which he’ll presumably resell on the other days too), the Mercedes gull-wing stand, people-watching, the whine of the F1 cars, bargaining the roving earplug vendors down from CNY40 to CNY4, Larry burning his bald spots, and the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia, we checked out the 1.2-km karting enterprise nestled in the two right-jutting arms of the F1 track’s 上 shape (the first Chinese character in the word ‘Shanghai’). Next to Kart World was the Shanghai Racing School building, which set some of our minds a-thinking …

Guytai bowling event

Just to prove how much help we needed, the 12 guy tai's who spent the afternoon bowling on Friday March 22, all bowled one game before Bruce arrived. Bruce, currently the bowling pro at Orden Lanes in Puxi, was the national bowling champion of China for 3 years but on this Friday he was coming to provide much need coaching and advice to the 12 of us.

He arrived between the 7th and 8th frames or our first round and quickly realized he had a lot of work on his hands. His awesome bowling and coaching skills easily overcame both his limited English and our limited Mandarin. Everyone learned a ton and bowled a much better second round.

Bruce is an awesome coach and a very nice guy to boot, although he certainly looked a bit tired and haggard after 1 hour of running back and forth between our 3 lanes giving each of us some personal bowling advice between group sessions (complete with visual aids and quick tips).

A great time was had by all (except for possibly Bruce) and everyone learned a thing or two in the process.
