There is never a dull moment in Shanghai, so much so I decided to write about it. From teaching the likes of Fluttershy, Banana and Puppy (to name a few of my students names), being asked to dress up as Snow White at the New Year ceremony and my first role as directing and producing the school production of Little Red Riding Hood, there is always a moment of madness.
