Huátíng Lù is the birthplace of the Xiàngyáng Lù market which is now located at the Science and Technology Center subway station. Nowadays it is a very quiet street connecting Chánglè Lù and Huáihǎi Lù. Some clothing stores and restaurants remain as the only indication of its ancestry. Along this road Pei Hua shares an intimate memory of her past love. Their first meeting was at the KFC at the end of the road which is still there. The table where they sat was occupied when we arrived so we sat at the table behind. Softly she spoke of her feelings about a man whom she met by chance. At that moment, who would have known what 起 点 : 长 乐 路 与 华 亭 路 克 丽 缇 娜 the future would hold for them?

spa on the way to her office on Yǒngjiā Lù [ 永 嘉 路 ]. I had just graduated from college and I had a lot of pimples on my face so my friend recommended that I come to this place. I started coming here for facials since 2005 until last year. When I first came to this spa I ran into this girl who was really interesting. Every time she saw me she ‘flew over’ like a little angel and said, “Come here, come here!” I used to have a ton of pimples on my chin but after the first treatment here I already felt much better. This place is quite nice, the technicians are all very polite, and I feel that they all genuinely care about me. They would ask me about my job, my family, and boyfriend and even if I was planning on getting married, so I really loved coming here. I used to come here twice a week because of my pimple issues. Then it became once a week, then twice a month. I started to realize that if I did not come for a long time I would really miss them, so I would come back often to chat with everyone. I feel really relaxed when I come here. The technicians would talk to me about interesting topics. Sometimes I would have a lot of pimples on my face and after she


华亭路 回去,也是对心理素质嗰挑战,因为 地铁上老多人会像看外星人一样嗰看 侬,因为面孔上老红,又因为油光光 嗰,就老搞笑嗰。 [2:56] [ 开 始 沿 着 华 亭 路 走 ] 箇 条 路 老幽静,一直觉着箇条路蛮灵光嗰, 所以箇搭嗰小姑娘也会介绍老多吃饭 嗰好孛相嗰地方畀我,所以后来畀同 事也会经常到箇附近来,发觉箇搭真 嗰老有老上海嗰味道嗰,老灵嗰。 箇搭就是华亭路了,其实就是襄阳 路 [ 服饰市场 ] 嗰最早嗰,[ 华亭路 ] 两旁侪是商店,卖老好看嗰衣服之类 嗰,大概七八年前畀拆掉了,就变成 襄阳路 [ 服饰市场 ] 了,搬去襄阳路 了。我觉着箇搭还是拆脱了好,因为 实际上箇条路蛮幽静嗰。

[3:46] 有一趟我记得老搞笑,箇是一 趟做完面孔,做得弗错,面孔上反应 小,所以就选择乘地铁回去。正沿着 箇条路走,突然发觉前头有嗰人,穿 勒老奇怪,戴嗰礼帽穿嗰西装,下面 穿嗰睡裤加皮鞋,我想:咦!箇弗是 以前上海最搞笑嗰穿着方式吗?弗晓 得伊为啥要箇么穿,而且走路还老有 台型。我又想:是弗是箇嗰人出来冒 充上海老克勒 1 嗰?弗过伊看起来四 十几岁,老滑稽。

湘菜的餐厅,是我和以前实习的公司 老板一起来吃的,这个女老板人挺好 的,有一次我们一起出去办事,在常 熟路下的车,和一个小姑娘谈了工 作、合作的事情,觉得我表现蛮好 的,所以就请我在外面吃了顿饭。那 时候在读大学,不经常在外面吃饭, 觉得在外面吃饭很开心的,里面的服 务员也蛮好的。

pretty good one because I did not have a big reaction – I decided to go home by subway. I was walking along this road and all of a sudden I realized a guy in front of me who was dressed very weird. He was wearing a dress hat with a suit coat, but with pajama pants and dress shoes! I was thinking to myself, “Oh! Wasn’t this how those old comedians used to dress up in Shanghai?” I had no idea why he dressed like that and he actually walked as if he was on stage. I was thinking, “maybe he is impersonating the Shanghai ‘Old Kè Lè’? 1 ” But he looked like he was only in his 40s… It was very ridiculous.

[3:46] I remember I saw something [4:58] 箇搭之前,勒前头路口有爿吃 [4:58] 这里之前,在前面路口有家吃 funny here. After one of my facials – a

已经换过好几家人家 [ 老板和品牌 ] 了,一般都是开了一年多了就开不下 去了。倒是长乐路上我做脸的这家, 开了有七八年了。这条路走着就觉得 很舒服,如果不是在做美容的日子 里,我就会慢慢的走,能听见周围的 许多声音,像是小鸟的叫声。两旁的 房子看上去是一直有人住着的,但是 没有门牌,也不像上海人的那种居民 小区类的样子,就觉得有些神秘感。 下次自己会来看一看。过一会我们就 会走到前面的一家肯德基,说到这家 店,因为我们还没走到,就先说些之

[4:58] There used to be a Hunan

Restaurant in front here at the intersection [Yanqing Lù [ 延 庆 路 ]]. I have been here once with my boss from my internship. She was a really nice person. One time, during a business outing around Chángshú Lù [ 常 熟 路 ], we met with this other woman and talked about co–operating and a lot of business–related things. She must have felt that I did a good job during the meeting so she invited me out for a meal. I was still in college at the time and did not really go out to restaurants so I welcomed the thought of eating out. It was so much fun to eat at a restaurant and the service there was quite good.

华亭路 回到家我妈看到了这个帐篷,问我哪 里来的。我支支吾吾的说是买来的, 妈妈要打开看一下,我不让,要拿回 自己房间。没想到第二天早上我爸爸 妈妈就自说自话的打开了,我回家的 时候我妈就问我哪里买的,我说是商 店里买的,我妈就说这上面有块油 渍,是别人用过的,是店里买的就退 了它。我当时就有点气,心想:这个 人看上去不错,还买饮料帮我拉门, 怎么卖个这么旧的给我。我一看这块 油渍还挺大的,闻闻还有小笼包的味 道,想你这个人怎么自己外出用过了 不想要了就卖给我,我当时心里很 火,就打电话发消息给他,质问他。 正巧他当时在广西旅游,听不清楚, 就发消息,我平时脾气还不错。从来 没用这么强烈的词语,没想到他也是 很强硬的,他就说你把帐号给我,我 把钱退给你,东西你留着。我就说我 不 是 要 “ 坑 ”[ 占 便 宜 ] 你 的 钱 , 要不你广西回来我拿给你看一下,究 竟是怎么样的,你广西回来请我吃 饭!他 当 时 就一口 答 应 “ 哦 , 好 的!” 那这件事就算平息了。

size clothing but he had a tent that I could use. He also mentioned that he could sell it to me for a low price since it was taking too much space at his place anyway. I agreed, and we arranged a time and place to meet. I thought it was very peculiar that when he found out that I needed the things for a long trip, he called me on the phone and talked to me about it for over an hour. I was thinking, “What kind of person would talk to someone they have never met like this?!” He told me a lot of things about traveling and tried to convince me not to go since I had never been so far away before. He said that it was better that I started somewhere close by first to get used to the experience. He said that if I had altitude sickness it would be hard for a girl like me to deal with and also my co–workers might not know how take care of me if that happened. I thought that he did make some sense but I heard that the scenery was so beautiful there so I still decided to go 过了几天,我陪我的同事去 “ 相约 anyway. We finally decided that we 星期六 ” 录节目,是个男同事,我 would meet in KFC on Huátíng Lù 6 for 过了几天,蛮滑稽 ,我陪我嗰同事 就在来福士 [ 商场 ] 里一个人逛逛, the tent. 去 “ 相约星期六 ” 录节目,是嗰男 那天正好下雨,想着等逛完了下午再 同事,我就勒来福士 [ 商场 ] 里一嗰 去东方路录节目,没想到他就打电话 Earlier that day, I went to the ‘Super 回到屋里向阿拉妈看到了箇嗰帐篷, 问我哪里来嗰。我支支吾吾嗰讲是买 来嗰,妈妈要打开看一下,我弗让, 要拿回自己房间。呒想到第二天早上 阿拉爸爸妈妈就自说自话嗰拆开了, 我回屋里向嗰辰光我妈就问我哪里买 嗰,我讲是商店里买嗰,我妈就讲箇 上面有块油渍,是别人用过嗰,是店 里买嗰就退了伊。我当时就有点齁, 心想:箇嗰人看上去蛮好,还买饮料 帮我拉门,哪能卖嗰箇么旧嗰畀我。 我一看箇块油渍还蛮大嗰,闻闻还有 小笼包嗰味道,想侬箇嗰人哪能自己 外出用过了弗想要了就卖畀我,我当 时心里老齁,就打电话发消息畀伊, 质问伊。正巧伊当时勒广西旅游,听 弗清楚,就发消息,我平时脾气还弗 错。从来呒用箇么强硬的语气,呒想 到伊也是老强硬嗰,伊就讲侬拿帐号 畀我,我拿钞票退畀侬,物事侬留 着。我就讲我弗是要 “ 坑 ”[ 占便 宜 ] 侬嗰钱,要么侬广西回来我拿畀 侬看一下看,究竟是哪能会事体嗰, 侬广西回来请我吃饭!伊当时就一口 答应 “ 哦,好嗰!” 箇桩事体就算 平息了。

华亭路 人逛逛,箇天正好落雨,想着等逛完 了 下午再去东方路录节目,呒 想 到 伊就打电话来了。伊就问我 “ 侬 勒 做 啥 ?我过两天就回来了,回来 请侬吃饭!” 还讲 “ 我勒广西箇搭 旅游嗰辰光却偏偏想道侬了 ” 我就 觉着有点滑稽,一方面也对箇嗰人蛮 有好感嗰,所以等伊回来就一道吃饭 了。箇天我特地穿嗰小西装西裤,提 着嗰电脑包,像嗰工作了好几年嗰女 工程师,箇天约勒徐家汇嗰美罗城里 嗰星巴克,伊已经坐勒箇搭了,旁边 放了根登山杖,我自己买了 杯 咖 啡 就 坐 下 了 。 伊一见 面 就 讲 “ 侬 自 己 买 了 咖 啡 啊 ?我前两天去朋友箇 里,一直觉着弗好意思,就拿了根登 山杖来,算是赔畀侬嗰。” 我心想 箇还算可以。呒想到吃完饭伊提出来 走走,反正决定了打车回去,也随便 走到哪里。于是两嗰人就沿着肇嘉浜 路走,走了一歇,太暗了,我讲想要 回去了,就拦了辆白色嗰锦江出租 车。有劲嗰是伊讲,车牌我已经记下 了,侬会老安全嗰回到屋里向嗰,万 一有啥事 车牌我记牢了。我就想箇 样嗰男小人倒是老细致嗰。 回到屋里向,收到伊嗰短消息,讲自 己晚饭呒吃饱,结果回屋里向勒路边 摊吃嗰柴禾馄饨(用木头生火烧嗰馄 饨)畀烤羊肉。我想箇嗰人老能吃!

来了。他就问我 “ 你在做什么?我 过两天就回来了,回来请你吃饭!” 还说 “ 我在广西这里旅游的时候却 偏偏想起你了 ” 我就觉得有点滑 稽,一方面也对这个人蛮有好感的, 所以等他回来就一起吃饭了。那天我 特地穿的小西装西裤,提着个电脑 包,像个工作了好几年的女工程师, 那天约在徐家汇的美罗城里的星巴 克,他已经坐在那里了,旁边放了根 登山杖,我自己买了杯咖啡就坐下 了。他一见就说 “ 你自己买了咖啡 啊?我前两天去朋友那里,一直觉得 不好意思,就拿了根登山杖来,算是 赔给你的。” 我心想这还算可以。 没想到吃完饭他提出来走走,反正决 定了打车回家,也随便走到哪里。于 是两个人就沿着肇家浜路走,走了一 会,太晚了,我说想要回家了,就拦 了辆白色的锦江出租车。有趣的是他 说,车牌我已经记下了,你会很安全 的回到家的,万一有什么事车牌我记 住了。我就想这样的男孩子倒是很细 致的。 回到家,收到他的短消息,说自己晚 饭没吃饱,结果回家在路边摊吃的柴 禾馄饨(用木头生火烧的馄饨)和烤 羊肉。我想这个人很能吃!结果我就 在网上看他写的帖子,没想到他能吃 一百三十几个小笼和两个肯德基的全

I had some make–up on but my face was oily from running around and my hair all was messed up, but I knew I was just meeting a stranger so I didn’t really care how I looked. I never thought that he would be wearing an ironed white shirt! It was unusual for me to meet a person wearing such a nice shirt because the people I work with are usually technicians, and they would never wear something nice like that. He also wore nice black suit trousers. He looked quite ‘modern’ [ 登 样 ] 8. He was tall and my first impression of him was pretty good. [Enter KFC and go downstairs sit at the table on the left at the bottom of the stairs.] We sat at a table downstairs. We sat here that time [Pointing to the table behind her] we met but today that seat is taken. He ordered a Coke first and asked me what I wanted. I said I wanted orange juice but I actually had second thoughts about letting him get me a drink. During that time there was 14

always news about how people were drugged by strangers who offered a free drink. I made sure he drank his first before I started drinking mine. Then we started talking. He gave me the tent and I paid him 380RMB for it. We talked for about half an hour. It was really hot that day and I wanted to go home. Actually, there was not much we could talk about, so we just talked about traveling and were very polite to each other. When it was time to leave he accompanied me to the subway. I was taking a train north towards the Shanghai Railway Station and he was going south towards Xu Jia Hui so we said goodbye with a handshake on the platform. When we left KFC, he let me walk in front of him but then he ran ahead to open the door for me. I thought that it was very courteous of him. I graduated from college only 2 years before and none of the guys around me were as courteous as him. They usually acted like kids joking about childish things. So I had a very good impression of him and I thought that he was a good guy. But the fact that he was dressed up like that and 所以之后我就给他做做兼职,给他公 was able to take so much time out from 司的员工做做培训材料,蛮开心的, work made me think about what kind


华亭路 所以之后我就畀伊做做兼职,畀伊公 司嗰员工做做培训材料,蛮开心嗰, 老厚嗰培训材料,有几百页!伊自己 订好了发畀员工,也畀了我一份。时 间到了 07 年 1 月,阿拉认得辰光是 06 年 8 月。伊箇趟正好外出办事, 伊打电话畀我让我去伊办事嗰地方等 伊,有东西要畀我,到了之后伊就畀 了我一本影印好嗰员工培训资料畀一 嗰红包,我想着原本就是兼职嗰后来 熟了也弗打算要伊付钞票嗰,结果伊 却畀我一嗰红包。还摸摸我嗰头,像 哥哥一样,讲 “ 侬乖乖嗰上班,我 还会来寻侬 [ 帮忙 ] 嗰 ”。阿拉碰面 嗰地方离我原来嗰大学老近,箇天心 里有点乱,因为老长辰光呒有碰到让 自己心动嗰男小人了,就去箇里转了 一圈,箇天也下着点雨,学校里老安 静,心情老高兴也老纠结。我回到屋 里向打开红包一看,有一千元,虽然 嘴吧上讲着弗要,但是刚毕业嗰小姑 娘能勒外面寻到一份弗错嗰工作又能 有箇么好嗰兼职就觉着老弗错,做嗰 事又有劲,是畀餐饮写培训材料。箇 桩事体之后伊会经常嗰夜道畀我打电 话,因为工作原因,伊一般侪勒两三 点打来,每趟侪讲好些事情,工作上 嗰,啥嗰,每趟侪会有一两嗰小时, 有辰光甚至是五六点,我就弗困觉直 接去上班。就箇样过了一嗰月,呒想 到有一趟打电话嗰辰光伊哭了!是伊

of work he did. It never crossed my mind to contact him again. After I got home, my mother noticed the tent and she asked me where I got it. I did not want to tell her the whole story and just said that I bought it. She wanted to open it and take a look but I refused and took it to my room. The next morning, when I was at work, my parents opened the tent without my permission. When I got home, my mother questioned me about where I got the tent, I replied that I got it from a store. Then she said that there was an oily stain on the tent and if I really bought it from a store, I should return it. I was kind of mad because even though the guy looked nice and was kind enough to buy me a drink, he still sold me such an old, used thing. The oily stain was quite large and smelled like a steamed pork bun. I called him to question him about it but he was in Guang Xi Province 9 for vacation and the cell phone reception was bad so I sent him an SMS message instead. I am usually very mild tempered but since I was really mad about this I was very stern with him. I did not expect him to be equally as defensive. In the end he 16

years. We arranged to meet at the Xujiahui Metro City Starbucks before dinner. When I arrived, he was already sitting there with a walking stick next to him. I bought a cup of coffee and sat down beside him. He saw that I had already bought my coffee and told me that he wanted to buy me the coffee but I said that he didn’t have to. He said he was at his friend’s place and kept thinking about how bad he felt about the tent, so he wanted to give me this walking stick as compensation for my inconvenience. I was happy to receive that; at least he knew that it was his fault and that I wouldn’t forget it. After dinner he suggested we go for a walk. I decided to take a taxi home so I just walked around with him along Zhàojiābāng Lù [ 肇 家 浜 路 ] where we could easily find a cab. After a bit of walking I told him that it was late and that I had to go home. He waved down a white Jin Jiang Taxi for me and said, “I have already memorized the license number of this car, so you will be safe”. He said, “If anything happens to you, I have the license number of this car.” I thought to myself how considerate he was.


华亭路

基本上就讲光了。

After I got home, I got an SMS message from him. He said that he was not full from dinner and he had to eat wood–fired wonton and grilled lamb skewers from the street vendors on the way home. I thought about how he had such a huge appetite. I later found out from his blog that he was able to eat 130 steamed pork buns, 2 buckets of KFC chicken, and a Peking duck in a single sitting. I thought to myself: “This guy eats a lot, knows so much about traveling, and also goes on camping trips with friends around Shanghai. What an interesting person.” I would talk to my co–workers about him and when they asked if I liked him, I answered “Yes!”. From then on, we started texting and calling each other often. Once I was on a trip to Xiamen and he happened to call me while I was at the beach. He heard the sound of the ocean and asked me to bring him something back. Since he collects cigarettes, he wanted cheap local cigarettes, the ones that cost 1.5 yuan per pack. He said that popular cigarettes could be bought anywhere but the local brands could only be bought where they were 20


Huating Lu made. He promised to take me out for a hotpot dinner once I got back. Then he told me about what he does in his company and I found out that he was in the restaurant business. He works for a high profile western restaurant and they were planning on opening a new restaurant on Héngshān Lù. He told me he needed someone to work on administrative paperwork related things. I offered to do the job but he said that I was in the engineering field and I was overqualified to work on this type of stuff. So I suggested posting an ad on BBS job sites to help him look for an assistant. Perhaps there were some students that would like to do part–time work for him. He agreed, so I helped him post the job request. What he didn’t know was that whenever I got a resume from someone, I would delete it and in the end, I told him there was no one suitable for the job. So he finally agreed to give me a try. Whenever he saw me working he would say that my spreadsheets and Powerpoint presentations looked very professional. I told him that the work I do at my regular job was a lot more complicated and that was why I could do these so well. From then on I would 21


华亭路 work part–time for him. I would mainly help him with his employee training materials which had hundreds of pages. It was a lot of fun. When the book was finished, he bound the finished product and distributed it to all of his employees. He also gave one to me. It was now January 2007 and we had known each other since August 2006. Shortly after that, he was out on business somewhere in Shanghai and he called me to meet him where he was and that he had something for me. When I got there he gave me a copy of the finished employee training material that I worked on and a red envelope 11. I was thinking that since we had been friends already, I was actually helping him for free. He gave me the red envelope and patted my head like a big brother and said, “If I need you to work for me part–time again I will let you know.” The place where we met was really close to my University. I felt a bit overwhelmed since I had not met anyone I had such strong feelings for in a long time, so I decided to take a walk around the school campus. It was gently raining and quiet. I felt happy 22


Huating Lu and at the same time still occupied. After I got home I opened the red envelope and found out there was 1,000 RMB inside. I kept telling him that I did not want any money for my services and that it was uncommon for someone who recently graduated to have a great full time job and a fun part–time job that paid so well. After our meeting that night, he would call me more often, usually in the evenings because of the nature of his business. He would usually call at 2–3 a.m. in the morning and would tell me so many things about his work, his life, etc… Our telephone conversations would usually last for 1–2 hours and sometimes we would stay up until about 5–6 in the morning. Sometimes I would go straight to work without sleeping. Once he called and started crying because his mother was sick. I tried my best to comfort him and told him that his mother would surely get better. After that, he would call me more often in the morning and at night and we were getting closer and closer.

[25:30] One day I went with some

co–workers to a Mexican bar for fun. He always said that he wanted to go to 23


华亭路 Karaoke with me and he suggested that we should go tonight. I agreed so he came to the bar to look for me. He dressed as if he was a gangster member all in black. He wore a black Chinese top, black pants, black shoes and black bag. When he walked into the bar I was really surprised because he really looked like a gangster and it seemed all people that worked in the bar knew him. I already had a bit to drink and I could feel that my face was burning. He told my co–workers that we were going to Karaoke. As I left, I saw from the corner of my eye that my co–workers were giggling in the corner. After we left he realized that I was a bit drunk so he was holding my hand. Actually, I really wanted to hold his hand too. We walked along Gao An Lù [ 高 安 路 ] and took a taxi from there to Melody Karaoke near the Shanghai Stadium 12. While we were waiting for the room we talked a lot and when we finally got the room and started singing, I found out that he could sing really well. I sang this song called ‘I really do love you’ and part of the lyrics said, “I am like a lonely leaf”. He asked if I truly felt so lonely and I said that it was it. We stayed there 24


Huating Lu

25


华亭路 until 4 or 5 a.m. and he accompanied me home in a taxi. I was really tired and fell asleep. I felt that he pulled me closer to him and was touching my hair. When he kissed my forehead I felt so special because none of my ex–boyfriends had ever treated me so intimately. I felt really warm and loved. I pretended to be asleep but I was pretty sure he knew I was awake because I was touching his tummy. After we got off the car he walked me to my front door. I told him not to hold my hand. He said, “I would hold your hands forever” and from that moment we were a couple. After that we went out for dates and also for fun. On Valentine’s day he took time off work just to come see me and in April we went to the Zoo together. But, shortly after that, his work got really busy and we were only able to meet once a month. As more time passed, he was so busy that we barely saw each other. Sometimes he would ask the waiters from his work to deliver food and snacks to me. I thought that was sweet of him to do these things but I still felt that something was missing because we 26


Huating Lu never could see each other. We started arguing about not being able to meet and by August 2007, I felt it was time to go our separate ways and broke off our relationship. Last year [2008] I went to the United States for my job. I still called him sometimes and I knenw that he still cared a lot about me. We would always meet up for dinner every time I came back to Shanghai. I would bring back some wine or a restaurant–related magazine for him. He would tell me that these were really professional magazines. Last year we even came back to this KFC. Today, we are still good friends, very close friends. We still tell each other everything in our heart. Even though our relationship didn’t last as long as we both wanted, we still see each other on a regular basis, so it feels as if we never separated. Whenever I pass by this KFC at the Chángshú Lù Subway stop I think about our story. Sometimes I come in to take a look and remember our first meeting together. I guess this is a little secret in my heart. 27
