UGC China Blog Entry by David Lomke

On Friday we visited General Electric, which employs 3 members of our group. We were given a tour of the campus, which is beautifully designed. In addition to the normal office features that you would expect, the campus also has a full gym, gorgeous break rooms, and plenty of space for leisure.
As Friday was one of our last days in Shanghai, I though I would give a recap of some of the more exciting moments that I personally experienced. First and foremost, I got to meet Shaquille “The Big Shaqtus” O’Neil at the airport, with made my trip amazing within the first 5 minutes of being in China. Shanghai is an interesting place to say the least. The dichotomy and general spectrum of wealth is exemplified by a Bentley dealership being located within 100 feet from the ghetto. There is so much visible wealth concentrated in such a small area, yet there are massive amounts of poverty right beside it.
Just a quick note on the food scene here in Shanghai: McDonald’s and KFC are not nearly as good as back in the US, but a lot of the local cuisine is actually pretty good. Even if the lunch or dinner was mystery fish with a side of mystery plant, everyone has been open to giving it a shot. For me, ignorance is bliss and as long as I don’t know what it is, then ill eat it. However, I do look forward to the moment when I can get my hands on a juicy cheeseburger from Five Guys the moment I land in the States.
The night before, we somehow gained access to the 58th floor of the Ritz-Carlton and were able to get an amazing view of the entire city at night. Everything is lit up in extravagant color, and the view was honestly breathtaking. It is crazy to think that just 25 years ago, the exact spot we took the pictures was 100% farmland.
Since my blog entry is a litte late, I thought I would write a little bit about our first 2 nights in Beijing. Personally, I like Beijing a lot more than Shanghai. The city seems a bit more relaxed than Shanghai, but still has all of the Shanghai luxuries. The people are incredibly friendly and the city seems to have a lot more of the older feel to it. The forbidden city was amazing and I cannot wait until the Great Wall tomorrow morning. On a sadder note, there are no pandas here, so my promise of smuggling home a baby panda may be scratched.

  15. Plan out when you will take a break. Taking a break to eat, drink, and kick up your heels is often a good idea. However, don’t let yourself become too distracted during your break! Plan out a chosen amount of time that you will take a break for. It is best to take a break after you have completed an entire task rather than in the middle of it. One example could be that you plan to take a break after you have cleaned out under your bed and before you start organizing the smaller things in your room.
    • Don't take a break if the time of your break comes around and you feel as though you're on a roll. Use that feeling of being on a roll to get even more done!
