No free lunch in Shanghai

We kept seeing these blackboards and banners, even cartoons on the subway in Shanghai…
The slogan was quite corny… 天上不會掉餡餅
How do I try to describe Shanghai? The place my maternal grandmother was bought by her family, who were shown a baby boy but carried home a baby girl… I have been there 4 times in 13 years… and each time I was repulsed and attracted…
There are the new ostentatious buildings… a modern version of the buldings on The Bund… impressive at first glance, but they seem to have no real soul.
