Editor’s Note S

o here we are. 2015 is almost over and we’re rushing into a brand-new year.

As the past 12 months flash before our eyes and the air fills with promise, fireworks and general merriment, I often find myself thinking about that little word that has hit most of our minds these days: resolutions. I don’t know about you, but my resolutions tend to be rather straightforward. The funny thing about resolutions is that while they’re nothing but a fluffy, Champagne-fueled flight of fancy on the night of December 31, they also hold the power to inspire small to significant life changes throughout the year. Many of us vow to better ourselves while others chase their goals or follow a lifelong dream. Some will stick their resolution onto their everyday life like a bright yellow Post-It, while others will forget they ever promised as soon as the bubbly haze wears off around midday January 1. Resolutions truly come in every shape and shade, and we thought we’d ask a few in the PRD about their declarations for 2016 (p46). My 2016 resolution will be about one word: sparkle. Through the next year, I’ll try to add as much sparkle to my life as humanly possible. It can be about appreciating the beauty in the little everyday things, like a caramel soy cappuccino (a rarity!). It can be about putting my best dress on and going out on a night with the hubby when I’m feeling depressed and too lazy to move. It can be about doing good deeds: donating to charity or volunteering. Last but definitely not least, it can be about things that might seem small but are huge to me. Like this magazine, which will be in its fourth year come 2016. In this sparkling fashion-themed issue, Urban Family has boldly and bravely taken on the challenge of bringing you ideas on how to make you the most chic and stylish you can be (p25). With the most mouthwatering recipes (p56) for the festive season and the most interesting events (p64), we’re happy to present you with the best community and family-friendly magazine in the PRD. I hope you have an absolutely joyful Thanksgiving, a very merry Christmas and a fantastic New Year’s Eve. I hope you spend it with people you love, wearing clothes that make you feel fabulous, eating amazing food and feeling excited about the year to come. I hope you start your year with a light heart and curious eyes. Here’s to a sparkling 2016! Lena Gidwani Chief Editor, Urban Family

Selling your kin Grim news, indeed. In China, anywhere from 20,000 to 200,000 children are abducted annually, either sent into forced labor or sold to quasilegal adoption brokers. A curious reporter from China’s Southern Metropolis Daily recently studied public court documents from 364 cases involving a total of 380 abducted children and 508 suspects. While many of these children were taken away by strangers in public places, the court documents indicated that child traffickers often have a willing accomplice – the child’s biological parents. In 40 percent of the cases, the child’s biological parents sold their own children to other people, who sometimes went on to traffic them. The court cases also reveal more about China’s marketplace for trafficked children. Of the 380 trafficked children from the court cases, 248 were male and 120 were female. Daughters tend to sell for an average of RMB10,000, while sons go for much more – an average of RMB45,000. One can only wonder if this will change now that China has further liberalized its family-planning policies.

urban blurbs Banking for the future Parents looking to save their newborns cord blood stem cells can breathe a sigh of relief. China Cord Blood Corporation, China's leading provider of cord blood collection, laboratory testing, hematopoietic stem cell processing and stem cell storage services, announced on October 30 that the company's Guangdong subsidiary, Guangdong Cord Blood Bank, was accredited by the American Association of Blood Banks (AABB) in October this year. China Cord Blood Corporation is the first and largest umbilical cord blood banking operator in China in terms of geographical coverage and the only cord blood banking operator with multiple licenses. Under current PRC government regulations, only one licensed cord blood banking operator is permitted to operate in each licensed region and only seven licenses have been authorized currently, making this very good news for those looking to save cord blood stem cells for future generations.

Two-child policy From street corners to social media, Chinese have hailed the end of the one-child policy. China announced that all couples would now be eligible for a second child on October 29, reversing a controversial 35-yearold policy. The news is a major liberalization of the country's familyplanning restrictions, already eased in late 2013 when Beijing said it would allow families to have two children when the parents met certain conditions. In 2012, for the first time in decades, the working age population fell; almost 30 percent of the population is considered to be senior citizens. But it seems that this two-child policy may not have an immediate impact considering that it will only immediately affect 90 million citizens. We may be waiting a while before we see any real changes.







n Saturday, September 19, over 100 athletically inclined parents and children gathered at Nanshan’s Shenwai International School for the first edition of the Urban Family Sports Day in Shenzhen. Families enjoyed the time together while participating in a variety of sports activities. Children above five years of age played games provided by Soccer Rangers™, Five-Star Sports, GolfJoy and Skyway Football. Children four years and younger worked with coaches from UP Children to play a variety of games. After working up a healthy appetite, attendees bought food from onsite vendors Nogogo Online Groceries, HH Gourmet, Maison Delice and Loft Eatalicious and all sipped complimentary Vittel Water. Captivating International, the event charity partner, raised RMB2,655 during the event.

BLURBS What sort of activities have you organized to date?

A Heart for China

Sharing is caring

Compiled by Lena Gidwani, with contribution from Ronny Verdoodt


ounded in May this year by Ronny Verdoodt, A Heart for China is a charity organisation in Shenzhen for children and elderly people. We had a chat with Ronny to learn more about this new charity and how they are changing lives. Tell us how you started A Heart for China.

I founded the charity in May 2015 in Shenzhen to help poor people, elderly folks and young children in China who need aid and affection. Instead of giving money, shoes or clothes, we decided to donate food that is bought from cash donations made from members. Many people also bring rice and milk to the event place to donate to them. The basic principle though is to give love and affection to them who are missing this. This are the basic needs that all humans need, as some things just can’t be bought with money or material things. With simple gestures like playing games, talking, caring and give love to them, we can make a hearty difference.

How do you spread the word? We use WeChat as a platform as it's the most effective. The groups, divided into a main group and a volunteers group, have approximately 1,100 members and many are from all over China. Our



official account is followed by almost 600 members and growing. As of August this year, A Heart for China has a license to operate legally in Shenzhen, with myself being legally responsible, and with an official administration. Our logo is also registered in China as of September 2015. We have more plans to grow consistently and hope to launch this initiative in more cities around China.

How do you fund your activities? As we have different costs and sometimes need to cover expenses such as transport, funding, sponsorship and donations are necessary. Right now, members or myself are covering it, but it's always possible if we want to grow and provide more assistance. Our plan for spending is targeted, and we try to make use of the donations in a way that they are helpful in daily life for the children and people in need.

We have organized more than 22 activities to date, in orphanages, shelters and elderly homes since May this year, as well as a pool party and dinner party to bring our members together. We have donated over 1,000 kilograms of rice and 60 liters of shampoo and soaps. Numerous liters of milk and other food items were also donated, as well as small things such as toys and clothes. The autistic school that we visit regularly has about 140 children aged 4 to 16, many mentally and physically disabled, orphans and others. Our future plans are to start English classes in poor desolated villages and poor children in the main cities that are not rich to follow English or foreign culture. We want to truly help more poor places in the main city by giving food and care, planning sports activities for poor children such as football, set up a donation storage space so we can send out clothes, shoes and books to very poor villages in China, and train volunteers and help them to understand how to help people. The most important thing is that our organization and our volunteer members can contribute to our common goal, which is to make children and elderly people in need happy and to care for them with all our hearts.

Movember Madness

Raising money for men’s health Contributed by David Pollicutt and Stuart Geraghty


ovember is traditionally the time of year where people’s energy can start to wane in school: shoulders may droop, and rings of fatigue appear under eyes as people grimly march towards the promised rest of the Christmas holidays and Chinese New Year. This November is different, as teachers at Utahloy International School Guangzhou and The British School of Guangzhou celebrate Movember! This is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as depression in men, prostate cancer and other male cancers.

At Utahloy International School Guangzhou, 23 brave teachers from both Primary and Secondary have accepted the challenge of growing a moustache for the month in order to raise money for charity. Headed up by the charming Head of English, Mr. David Pollicutt, the end of the month will see ‘The Great Shave-Off’ in school, where students will get an opportunity to bid at an auction to shave off teachers’ moustaches. Perhaps students can finally have some razor-blade revenge enacted on that strict science or maths teacher! To help out, go to www.justgiving. com/uisgz

At The British School of Guangzhou, several male teachers have braved the challenge by growing their moustaches to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK. But it’s not just the men that are supporting this good cause. Female staff members, known as Mo’Sistas, will be helping out during the month by encouraging everyone to make donations and by selling moustache merchandise such as badges and stickers during the last week of school so that everyone in the school community can join in the fun. The last day will of course be a spectacle for students, with lots of fan‘tache’tic fun for all! To help The British School of Guangzhou

out, simply make a donation in person at the school’s front desk before November 27.




When your hip hurts

Understanding hip injuries and pain By Erick Chen, Athletic Trainer, United Family Guangzhou Clinic

Causes of hip injuries

tabular Impingement (FAI). FAI may affect the hip joint in young and middleaged adults and occurs when the ballshaped femoral head rubs abnormally or does not permit a normal range of motion in the acetabular socket. Damage can occur to the articular cartilage or labral cartilage (soft tissue bumper of the socket), or both. FAI-related pain is often felt in the groin, but may also be experienced in the lower back or around the hip. Patients can also feel clicking, grinding or stiffness in the joint. Joint stiffness is often described as needing to “pop the hip to make it feel better.” Patients with FAI will also report discomfort with prolonged hip flexion activities like sitting. Diagnosis is commonly made by testing the range of motion for the hip and can be confirmed with diagnostic imaging. Typically, the first type of intervention would be oral anti-inflammatory medication and physical therapy. The initial goals would be reduce pain and inflammation, followed up by increasing strength of the hip joint and lumbar pelvic stability. In more severe cases of FAI direct steroid injection or surgical intervention will be required to fix the problem.

Battling this disorder By Dr. Li De Zhi, Shenzhen HarMoniCare Women & Children’s Hospital


norexia is no joking matter. Also known as anorexia nervosa, this health issue is becoming a larger problem day by day.

What is anorexia? Anorexia nervosa is a serious, often chronic, and life-threatening eating disorder characterized by a distorted body image and self-starvation despite extremely low body-weight. People with anorexia place a high value on controlling their weight and shape, using extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with activities in their lives.

What are the types of anorexia? It can be divided into infantile anorexia and adolescence anorexia. Infantile anorexia is related to improper feeding



times and bad eating habits. For example, not eating regularly is an issue. You won't have an appetite if you eat snacks or candy before a meal. One must always have something in your stomach so that blood sugar levels do not drop. Adolescent anorexia is more common in women who are excessively pursuing a slim figure. It occurs in women, and tends to start between the ages of 13 to 25 years old. Because of the longterm eating control, some people even try to constantly stimulate the pharynx with their fingers in order to spit the food out. This disrupts the normal nerve reflex artificially, and leads the brain to no longer get stimulated when seeing food. The reduction of secretion

of digestive juices, peristalsis of stomach and slowing down of the bowel – all of these are reasons why people suffering from anorexia don’t feel hungry when they see food. Instead, they feel disgusted and sick. Consequently, it affects the pathological nerve reflex. Anorexia is often accompanied by changes in personality, malnutrition, decrease of cardiac function and metabolic and endocrine disorders. For example, the female suffers from amenorrhea. Around 5 to 15 percent of people die from issues like cardiac complications, multiple organ failure, secondary infections and suicide.

How to treat and prevent adolescent anorexia? For patients who haven’t eaten food for a long time, their gastrointestinal function will weaken. So when having food, one should start with a soft diet, or more meals but in smaller quantities. If you eat excessively at one time, you will feel bloated and have abdominal pain. You should take oral medicine to improve appetite and digestive function. Some people with light symptoms can use traditional Chinese medicine to nourish the spleen and the stomach. One must also get enough sleep to ease psychological pressure and use zinc supplementation therapy to increase the appetite. Severe cases will require medicines to correct water electrolyte disorder and malnutrition. The use of behavior therapy and psychotherapy will also help patients, especially those who are above 18 and whose history of the disease exceeds three years. Those who cannot be helped by medicine and therapy can resort to surgery, although it is often not needed. A balanced diet, good habits and enough sleep can help you to prevent anorexia.




Battling body image issues

Learning to see your body in a new light By Jenny Ostermiller


was horrified. As a part of my sixth grade health class a few years ago, students learned how to set goals. While looking through the responses, I noticed a lovely, healthy girl had written the following: “I will lose 3 kilograms.” She had listed several things she would do to achieve this goal – cutting calories, exercising several times a week, weighing in. When I asked her why she thought she needed to lose weight, she told me that she thought she was fat. Despite my protestations, nothing could convince her otherwise. She was 11 years old. As much as I would like to say that this kind of thing is an isolated incident, I recognize through my work as a school counselor and my experiences as a woman who doesn’t live in a cave devoid of media influences that this is typical. I would venture to guess that most women (and the majority of men) can quickly list off all of the physical flaws they possess – muffin top, cellulite, too much junk in the trunk, thunder thighs – the list goes on and on. Most of us have tried some kind of diet or exercise regimen to remedy our issues. Most of us fail. A 10-day juice cleanse rarely leads to

one feeling good about themselves in the long term. But again and again, we hop on the treadmill of diet advice and exercise fads hoping that the next big trend will lead to a romping on the beach in a tiny bikini, America’s Next Top Model style. So how do we, as human beings, and especially women, regain the right to feel good about our bodies? Is there a magic pill or workout move that can solve all of our diet and size woes? My answer is an empathetic no. There is no magic. There is no quick fix. However, there is hope.

My own experience in the last year has taught me that when we eat healthful, nutritious food we can transform how we feel about our bodies and how we feel in general. My own journey this year saw what some would consider a radical change in the way I eat and view food. For me, adopting whole foods and a plant-based diet (with no animal products or added oil) has helped me to understand and appreciate the gift of a healthy body and mind in a way that I couldn’t imagine before. By fueling my body with real foods that haven’t been processed or refined beyond recognition, I have finally developed a relationship with my body that I am happy with. I no longer look in the mirror seeking flaws. Rather, I understand that taking care of myself leads to a host of physical and emotional benefits, including feeling good about how I look in my skinny jeans. The best thing we can do for ourselves or as parents and role models to children is to seek out good health and stop looking for quick fixes. By truly nourishing ourselves with our food rather than chasing a certain size through, we can’t help but change the way we view our bodies.

Are dental implants for you?

Finding other solutions to missing teeth

Dr. Cheepeng Sum, Dentist, Eur Am International Medical Center


patient recently asked me if we offered implant service. The question came up because the patient had a space between his back teeth and wanted to have an implant. We do. But instead, we offered the patient the provision of a bridge prosthesis. We informed him that the teeth adjacent to the space both needed to have crowns as there were very large fillings in them and that these teeth would make good retainers for a bridge prosthesis instead of using an implant retained prosthesis. He was surprised. Bridges have been in use in dentistry for a very long time and they offer excellent long-term service to patients

over two to three decades. Implants are no more successful than bridges. We are bombarded by the media on a daily basis, giving us information that implants are the most modern and best solution to replace missing teeth. They are, but there are at least four important provisions: 1. You are in very good health – you do not smoke, have no diabetes and are not osteoporotic or have taken medicines for osteoporosis. 2. You have a very healthy mouth – you do not have active gum disease and practice good oral hygiene. 3. The bone where the implant is to be buried is of sufficient width and height, otherwise additional procedures to build bone may be necessary. 4. You are willing to put in the time and effort to maintain your implant after insertion.

The relationship between the implant surface and bone, whilst it is special and not like that of the tooth, can suffer gum-diseasetype inflammation and infection. Good oral health and good hygiene will aid the implant to last longer whereas poor oral hygiene practice will be followed by implant failure. Implant loss is also closely associated with smoking (less than 10 sticks a day). Ask your dentist about what is the best method of replacing your missing tooth. The implant need not be the best solution for you.

The art of Feng Shui

How it can influence your home By Alyssa Wieting


eng shui is one of those terms everyone is familiar with but no one
can quite define. This is hardly a surprise as feng shui is incredibly complex and mysterious in nature and intention. Over time it has developed and progressed into different schools and areas of application. However, if you are able to immerse yourself in the art and embrace its ideology, it can not only improve your home, but alter your life for the better. Feng shui explained The term feng shui literally means 'wind and water,' and is all about balancing one’s environment in order to bring good karma to your life (or company if practiced in an office).
 The fundamentals of feng shui revolve around the relationship between five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal and water. All of these elements affect different areas of one’s life. Feng shui has developed as a lifestyle that brings harmony to one’s life and home.

The history of Feng Shui

Tips to help you tweak your home

Feng shui is an ancient discipline that began in China thousands of years ago. It was originally used to identify safe dwellings that would allow farmers’ crops to flourish and also to determine appropriate burial sites for deceased relatives. As the years went by, it developed into a way to identify suitable locations for palaces, monuments and even entire cities, so that they could thrive and prosper. Although its popularity has waxed and waned over the years, feng shui has always been an integral part of Chinese culture. Today, it is used across the globe for interiors, predictions, and even bettering one’s business or karma, but it will always treasure its Chinese roots.

1. When buying a new home, a road should never lead directly to your front door as this brings bad luck. The road in front of your home should also not curve in a semi-circle away from your front door. 2. Your apartment should not neighbor a building that is made completely of glass. The glass from the next-door building will reflect into your home and this also brings bad luck. 3. A mirror in the bedroom should never face directly towards the bed, nor should one face directly towards a door in the bathroom. 4. The front door should also never be placed directly in front of the end of a stairwell. 5. Do not have fake flowers in your home; everything should bring real life into your home. 6. Every home has a different directional system that is associated with a meaning, such as wealth, love or wisdom.

Seeking Advice For a better understanding of feng shui, we ask Mr. Yuan Feng for advice. A feng shui consultant from Shanghai, Yuan has been consulting across China for over a decade. Although he mainly offers his expertise for private homes, both local and international companies have turned to him for consultations so as to improve their karma, wealth or knowledge in an industry. When appraising someone’s home, a consultant or master will use antique tools to assist them in directional methods, since the north, south, east and west are key to the fundamentals of feng shui. Yuan is only able to reveal the basics of his trade as the rest are kept secret and never revealed. It is very important for clients to believe in feng shui, or else they will not be able to participate in the consultation. For example, Yuan explains, “In the traditional way, if the client is a couple and the wife does not believe in feng shui, and they are both present for the consultation, the wife has to drink a cup of wine and hold it for the entire process, so that she is unable to say anything that is not good luck.” It is essential to always bring luck and good karma upon the home and to exhibit decorum.

It is important for different family members to be placed in rooms that correlate to the element they most want to achieve. (This is different for every home and a feng shui master will need to be consulted.)

Yuan believes that families in particular can benefit from the art of feng shui in their homes. It can help the essence of a home; however, it cannot solve all the complex problems of a family. “We believe that feng shui is part of the solution, but still you need to work together as a family in order to have good outcomes,” he explains. By altering the positioning of their room and bed in the home, feng shui can also help couples improve fertility if they are trying to start a family. In recent years feng shui has grown increasingly popular in China and consultants are widely available. However, Yuan cautions that one must be careful when hiring a feng shui consultant or master. “There are few people who really can access the true information and techniques, so there are frauds in the field. In the past development of the feng shui technique, there have been gaps and breaks, so you don’t get the right information if you don’t follow a true teacher.”




What’s in your child’s clothing? The toxic truth By Rosa Deluca


veryone knows that China is the world's largest garment exporter, and kids' wear is one of its fastest growing sectors. However, at the expense of price and ease, how safe is the clothing that China makes?

Tests conducted in Britain by Greenpeace have found residues of hazardous chemicals in children’s clothing and shoes sold by major brands, including fast fashion, sportswear and luxury brands. Eightytwo items were studied and traces of toxins were found in all but six. The study confirms that the use of hazardous chemicals is still widespread – even during the manufacture of clothes for children and infants. Let that sink in for a moment. Yikes. The chemicals detected included hormone-disrupting nonylphenol ethoxylates and phthalates,



reproductive and immune toxins in the perfluorochemicals family, and antimony (a material similar to arsenic and organotins), which can damage immune and nervous systems. Greenpeace said that while amounts were small and there’s no evidence that children wearing the items would be harmed, precaution nevertheless called for an end to their use in textile production. But until manufacturers change their ways, here’s a few things parents can do: •If you buy something that you suspect is toxic (like it smells bad), wash it, wash it, wash it! The more you wash it, the more the toxins will be removed. •Just say no to sandals, shoes, boots or raingear made entirely or predominantly from rubber or plastic-like materials. Keep an eye out when shopping for shoes treated with antimicrobial chemicals. •Rid wardrobes of garments screen printed with plastisol, the

thick, rubbery material used to create slightly raised designs and logos. •Don’t purchase clothing promising stain-resistant, waterproof or odorfighting performance technologies, which utilize toxic chemicals. •Steer clear of polyester, which frequently contains traces of antimony. Stick to natural fiber clothing, preferably certified organic cotton, or select clothing manufactured in the US and Europe where regulations are generally stricter. Or buy or accept pre-loved clothing from friends or second-hand shops (the more the fabric is washed, the less toxins the fabric will retain). •Don’t add insult to injury. Wash clothing in plant-based detergents without synthetic fragrances, which can contain hormonedisrupting chemicals. Let your clothes line dry. Literally, air them out. The sun will also help the toxins to break down faster.





Your crowning glory

Hair tips to help you shine Compiled by Lena Gidwani, with contributions from Joseph Fernandes

“I think that the most important thing a person can have - next to talent, of course - is their hairdresser.” ― Joan Crawford

Joan Crawford is right. Your hairstylist may be a magician, but psychic they are not. In the imperfect real world that we live in, we walk into a hair salon, all dressed up and living in a fantasy to look a certain way, and then often leave frustrated at our hairdresser, wishing he or she had a bit more knowledge to make you look the way you want. But whose fault is it really? Joseph Fernandes, owner and stylist at Joseph Fernandes Hair Studio, works in both Guangzhou and Dongguan, and has plenty of experience with non-Asian hair, which often tends to suffer more in the weather we have here. A Brazilian native, Joseph was kind enough to share what hairstylists wish you knew before you walked through the door and sat down in their chairs. Prepare to be (re)educated, folks. Here’s to a more fashionable you.

because you're afraid to voice your opinion. This is your head, and a stylist's end goal is for you to be happy. 2) If you're not protecting your hair at home, you're making your life harder than it should be. Stylists want you to use a hydrating hair mask (either storebought or even homemade) once a week. This is especially true if you're planning an extreme shift, such as

3) Using permanent dye does not mean that your hair color will be brighter, last longer, or stay in better than it would with semi-permanent dye. Permanent color lifts and takes out original hair color and deposits new color in. Semipermanent dye does not lift out color – it only adds/deposits new color. Both dye types fade equally fast. For precolored ends, you don't need permanent dye, because the natural color has already been lifted out. Only use permanent dye on roots and grays. Use semipermanent dye to freshen up all-over color. It is less damaging, lasts longer, and is way shinier. And your stylist will be happy, because you won't walk in with a home hair dye disaster. 4) If you have dark brown or black hair, and want to go silver or pastel, it's going to take a lot of love and a lot of work. If you have ever dyed your hair dark, even if it was years ago, the ends are not untouched hair. If you have dyed it more than once, you have layers of color that need to come off. Don't be scared if the first two layers of bleaching result in a yellowlooking funk. Be patient. It's a process.

Sea Taste Mall was one of the first highend apartments built on the water. Now the sea has been filled and residents gaze out at the newer Coastal Rose Garden 2 across the street. The inside is well worth a visit as it’s mostly targeted at kids, so there’s a play area, a variety of classes like pottery and many tiny kids clothing shops.

Zhongda market is not hard to find. Rumored to be the biggest fabric and accessories distribution center in South China, this market is located at the intersection of Xingang Xi Lu and Lixin Lu in Liwan District. It is just adjacent to the distinguished Sun Yet-sen University, about 200 meters from Exit D of Zhongda metro station.

If you want your fabric of choice and an excess of decent tailors, this building is your best bet. It's small and retail sales are welcome, making it easier to navigate around. A tip for the newbie: bring along pictures of what you want made, and if you happen to have a garment that you want copied, even better. Remember to buy a bit of extra fabric too, just in case. Want curtains? Look directly across from the entrance, and voila, a whole building just for you!

Tackling Taobao for kids' clothes

If you’re looking for more upmarket fashion, the fifth floor of Grandview Mall and Level M of TaiKoo Hui has several boutiques for branded kids' clothes and products.

It was the spring of 2014 when Jennifer and her daughter Vivian, as her assistant, went to Hong Kong for a handmade sale in Discovery Bay. She had her usual array of items, but had also included a few last minute headbands that she had managed to glue together mere moments before leaving. Unfortunately as they were soon to find out, doing an outdoor sale in May during typhoon season is not a great idea. As gale force winds smashed against her windows and the sky grew ever darker, they went down for some solace and afternoon tea. And what to their amazement did they see? A parade of cute hats and truly fascinating fascinators. There was a wedding taking place in the hotel and Jennifer was overwhelmed by the beautiful array of 100-plus ladies with feathers, crystals, bows and flowers being worn on their heads. She was hooked. She had found her calling, her destiny.

As for the typhoon-soaked outdoor sale, the only sale she made was the flower-

covered headbands. With trains cancelled due to the flooding, she reached home at 3.30 in the morning. Exhausted but with a new spark of inspiration, Vivian Blooms, Hand Made, was born. An en-

chanting collection of millinery creations and hair accessories filled with fun and whimsy for all ages, it has the perfect accessory for weddings, cocktail parties, a day at the races, or an unfor-

gettable night on the town. Girls will find butterflies, flowers, headkerchiefs, sun hats and more. Women will find a collection of wonderful hats and fascinators, each one unique and hand made by Jen herself. The hats are decorated to delight and enjoy with crystals, pearls and, most of all, flowers. Jennifer creates each flower using the French millinery technique from the finest nature fabrics – velvet, silk and linen. With this process, the natural fiber is starched and then hung to dry. The flowers petals are then cut out of the stiffened fabric. Each one is then crafted by hand. The flowers are manipulated by heat, twisted and turned, then worked into arrangements and attached to the custom-made base. And to think that all this was inspired from a procession of ladies… To order one of Jennifer’s creations, email vivian.blooms@yahoo.com

The art of a goldsmith IKoNA sprung from Giulia Santini’s passion for art and the harmonious beauty of nature, as well as from her unspoken need to somehow counterbalance the very male nature of her profession in research and development. It is the perfect combination of her lifelong passions: natural gems, designing and the patient, empowering art of handcrafting.

How did you start off?

It all took off in 2010, when an Italian jeweler trained me to source gems to be used in his creations. It broadened my knowledge of precious stones and introduced me to the universe of a goldsmith’s laboratory. Since then, my passion for jewelry designing has done nothing but deepen, and in 2013, I started crafting my own gold and silver creations under the IKoNA brand.

IKoNa is an interesting name. What does it symbolize? IKoNA stands for artistic expression. The logo itself has a silhouette of a graceful capital 'I,' which symbolizes the collector’s intimate and individual connection with the design. Each unique piece of jewelry is aimed at collecting and conveying the inspiration I derive from surrounding human or natural worlds. Each piece is hand-made

All about pearls Meet Maggie Melkonian, owner of Coquette, a fashionable pearl jewelry line. Known as the queen of gems, pearls are the epitome of class and elegance. Known to enhance any outfit from a little black dress to a ballroom gown, pearls are coming back into fashion in a big way, replacing diamonds as a staple amongst fashionistas worldwide, thanks to the influence of celebrities like Kate Middleton, Michelle Obama and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Tell us about yourself.

I'm French, and I am originally from the fashion capital of Paris. My husband Leon and I have been in business for 20 years. When in Paris, we had a family business manufacturing and specializing in ladies fashion clothing. A few years ago, Leon decided to make the move to China to try his hand in the food and service industry, something completely different from what we know! I followed him soon after. Our son and daughter still live in Paris. Usually the children leave the nest and seek adventure and new horizons; it's the opposite with us! Leon owns and runs Chicken Express in Guangzhou.

How did you get your business started? When I first moved to Guangzhou five years ago, I was aware that China has the world’s biggest freshwater pearl production farms. My quest for stylish, modern designs was very different from the classic pearl necklaces that were being sold. The choices were also limited and it was nothing really creative. Although I admit I do own a few store-bought generic designs, it was never enough and I was always on the lookout for more. Whenever I saw a row of pearls, I would instantly think of presenting it differently and that it truly what got my creative juices flowing. The desire to hand-make what I love to wear became real this year. I created my brand Coquette, and my designs

from scratch, and each detail is cured to perfection, with patience and love. It can take as much as two weeks for a masterpiece to be completed. It's a true labor of love. It gives me pride and joy to see each piece 'emerge' slowly before my eyes, as it was conceived by my imagination. The highest reward is to observe the collector look at the finished piece for the first time and recognize it as his own. I truly enjoy the sudden burst of emotions of somebody who feels reunited to a long-lost and finally recollected extension of their persona. To get in touch with Giulia, email d.auradia@hotmail.com

What’s on the horizon?

I am working on a new collection which will be presented at the GWIC Christmas Charity Bazaar on November 17 at Gold Arch residences on Ersha Island, as well as other upcoming community bazaars. As for the future, this summer I had a pleasant surprise when a retail jewelry shop in Paris bought the few styles I had with me to sell in her shop. They want to further collaborate with me, and this is a great opportunity for me to be exposed to the Parisian market. To buy pieces from Coquette, email magd999@hotmail.com



COVER STORY From home baker to jewelry designer Santi Kehoe, 31, is fresh faced on a Sunday morning considering she was up late last night hosting a fabulous dinner party at her house complete with homemade cupcakes fresh from her own oven. The mom of two has been running a home-based baking business for the past year and is now setting her sights on a new project in the year to come – the introduction of her own jewelry line.

“I love wearing jewelry and I like pretty stuff and it encouraged me to start making my own. When you buy it at the stores then people have the same stuff as you, sometimes you’ll see people wearing the exact same pieces. I wanted to create something different and I discovered this passion in me.” With a background in fashion from her native Indonesia, Santi says that her taste in jewelry draws strongly from her love of 1960s fashion, though she also draws inspiration from modern trends. She is currently enrolled in a jewelry making class to upskill and gain more design experience in her craft. “There is a huge bead market in Guangzhou but it is rather a journey to

make and it’s not always possible with two young children to care for. However, there are little nooks and crannies around Shenzhen that I have found over time. This is what I like about living in Shenzhen, you discover shops where you can get great stuff.” Santi says that while her current focus is on creating individual pieces of jewelry, she will in time create a proper collection and expand into custom orders. Her plan is to launch her jewelry sales through online means and is considering vendor platforms, particularly Alibaba. Watch this space folks!

Small people, big business Children’s wear market is one of the most lucrative segments in the global clothing industry. Estimated to hit a value of USD173 billion dollars by 2017, the kids wear market tends to be recession-proof. Realizing this, brands like Oscar de la Renta, Fendi, Marc Jacobs and Roberto Cavalli have expanded rapidly into children’s wear. But it’s easy to feel a sense of nausea at the prices they sell for and at the idea that children, especially little girls, are being groomed to be future shoppers, though a Gucci bib is scarcely a prequel to a Gucci bag. Enter Ruba Sibai, mother of three and resident in Guangzhou. Seeing a niche in the market when she was younger, she created three brands that are now sold in stores across Australia, the USA and online.

I was born in Sydney, Australia. I originally studied Information Technology but my real passion was fashion. I opened my first women and men's

love for girls’ wear began. I sometimes head over to TaiKoo Hui and spend hours in the boutiques touching and admiring the incredible craftsmanship and fabrics of the designers. I’m very excited about the future of my three brands and I hope to keep on doing what I love. To purchase Ruba’s dresses, email sales@dollfaceclothing.com.au

Why did you make the move to Guangzhou?

We opened our factory six years ago in Dongguan and were travelling back and forth from Australia to China on a monthly basis. This was getting really hard with a young family. We made the decision to move to Guangzhou three years ago and have been here since then. Our expectations of the city were very low before arriving and surprisingly, we were blown away. My inspiration comes from high-end luxury designers, as that's where my true

boutique when I was 19 and later expanded to five and became very interested in girls’ wear. Three years later, I had my second daughter Alyssia. While I was pregnant I realized there was a gap in the market for people who loved the look, feel and quality of luxury kids wear but at middle market pricing. So I started designing and creating my range. The first label I created was called Petite by Celine. This brand is for girls’ fashion from birth to 12. Soon after, I started a second label called Alyssia Couture, which is special occasion wear and for girls from birth to 12. Three years later, my baby Lara was born and I created a luxury baby range called Lullaby.

Maternity style guide

prices were shockingly high and while there were some non-frumpy choices, they tended to go too far in the other direction, with too much “crazy bling, rhinestones, and diamantes”.

How to dress your baby bump


f you’ve seen pregnant Chinese women, it is no surprise that one of the biggest divides between locals and expats is maternity wear. Chinese maternity clothing can look either incredibly frumpy, childish, or both. The signature look is a shapeless pink dress in a heavy fabric over a white long-sleeved shirt, with leggings underneath. For sure, every culture had its stage of heavy, conservative maternity wear. It was almost taboo to be fashionable and show off the curve of the belly–and shape of the body–while pregnant. China is still behind the times for a number of other reasons as well. The onechild policy made women secretive about their pregnancies, looking to hide a bump, not show it off. Also, very strangely, “anti-radiation” clothing has been a huge trend in maternity wear, exclusively in China and a few other Asian countries. There’s zero proof that it works, but women here tend to wear relatively fashionable versions of the metal aprons you put on when getting an X-ray. Forty percent of maternity wear in China is still marketed as “radiation proof”.

Blogger Ruth Silbermayr-Song was encouraged to try this fashion for another reason. On her blog, China Elevator Stories, a friend encouraged her to wear the signature clothing to get a seat in the subway. Terribly nauseated, but not showing her bump yet, she wanted a way to be recognized as pregnant. However, most of us who come from overseas don’t want to look like an extra from The Handmaiden’s Tale. So, what’s a pregnant foreign lady to do? H&M is a go to for many women. They always have a good selection of stretchy tops and dresses to slide fashionably over that little (or not so little) bump. Pregnant lady Janice Zheng tried to visit some maternity stores around Shenzhen, like Octomama in All City, but the

Everyone raves about Asos, which claims to deliver to China. Online commenters complained that deliveries were lost or delayed for several months, which is probably a result of the overall hassle of getting things delivered here from overseas. Shenzhen moms tend to hop over to Hong Kong a lot, where the maternity wear selection is almost endless, from high end boutiques to nursing bras at Marks and Spencer’s. How about Taobao? 孕妇服装 (Yùnfù fúzhuāng), maternity clothing, or simply 孕妇 (Yùnfù) is what to search for on the site. The selection is vast and tends towards the aforementioned metal aprons and tents. The cute clothes are often just oversized shirts and sweaters that don’t really say “maternity”. There are a few shops if you dig deep, and the prices are usually very reasonable, so why not take a look?

Here are some Taobao search phrases: 孕妇连衣裙 Maternity Dresses 孕妇裤/托腹裤 Pregnant women pants/leggings 孕产妇内裤 Maternity Underwear 哺乳文胸 Nursing Bra 孕妇装秋冬 Fall and Winter Maternity Fashion

Child modeling Dos and don’ts


ot an adorable kid? Thinking of letting your child be a model? Maybe all your friends are doing it with their kids, or an agent approached you via WeChat. Here’s what you need to know before getting started. DO make sure that your son or daughter are going to have a fun time. If you have a fussy baby, they probably won’t do well on an all-day shooting. If your child is old enough, make sure to sit with them to speak about it and be excited to do it. The ideal child is an artistic, creative child. DON’T jump at anyone who gives you a business card on the street. Modeling scams exist here just as in other countries. You may find an 'agent' who asks you to pay a high fee for access to their clients. This is a scam. Have a Chinese friend Baidu the agent and verify their credentials. Better yet, try to find jobs through friends who have personal experience with that client or agent. DO make a model card for your child with their age, height, weight and shoe size on it. This should also include a nice, professional looking photo on it. DON’T pay an agency money for photographs. This

34 www.urban-family.com

can be another way for agencies to make money (though not always). A reputable agency will accept professional photos taken by an outside photographer. DO understand that different clients look for different things. Don’t take it personally if your child isn’t selected for a job. DON’T expect to make a career off your child’s modeling job. That is far too much pressure on your child. Whether you use the money from a job for a fun luxury, or keep a small savings account for the future, remember to stay focused on what benefits your son or daughter. DO keep your eyes peeled and ears open to any avenue for child modeling. Especially in Shenzhen and Guangzhou, there’s no main source for modeling jobs. People post on WeChat, ask friends of friends, or even approach you at Starbucks. Especially if you have a distinctively foreign looking child, you may end up getting approached often on the street. DON’T hesitate to walk away. You are your child’s advocate, while agents often simply care about money and others might see your child as a prop. Be sure to negotiate every single detail before-

hand. If an agent says the job is three hours, be sure they don’t expect you on set for 12 hours and only shooting for three. The client may push for one more photo, until they get an extra free hour of work. One agent demanded a mother wake up her sleeping baby to shoot. She refused, knowing it was better for everyone if her baby had a nap, especially the baby! DO try to be flexible. This is China, after all. Don’t storm off because the shooting starts late or everyone seems confused. Prepare as best you can – no food on set? Make sure to pack sandwiches and snacks and bottled water. Three-hour lunch break? Bring toys and coloring and some movies on an iPad. Worried about language barriers? Bring a sympathetic Chinese friend. Last but not least, having your child model here in the PRD can be a fun experience that can earn some nice money. Generally speaking, a three-hour shoot pays RMB1,500, with more for overnight/long jobs, but can be more or less depending on experience. Just be prepared for all the challenges that child models (and parents) may face.

PRD’s next top models Meet our fashionistas


ant to be on top? Like Tyra Banks says, age doesn’t matter when it comes to fashion. Meet these uber-fashionable kids out and about in the PRD. They prove that age doesn’t matter when it comes to looking fabulous.

London Reese London Reese is one of Shenzhen's most noted fashion icons. She's one of those people who looks effortlessly put together in a Parisian-style striped top, skinny pants and flip flops, sunglasses propped on her head. By the way, London is just 6 (and a half!) years old. Her mom, Sherley, isn't sure where she gets it from. She says that London is vocal when they shop together and seems to know exactly what she wants – and what she wants is fabulous. When asked for her fashion inspiration, London said it was her mom that inspired her, which brings a tear to Sherley's eye. Why does she pay so much attention to her clothes? "I love it when I look nice and it makes me happy." She adds, "People tell me that I look stylish all the time!"

London is currently digging boots and leggings for winter. "I love my boots and all my leggings. Can we get some more soon?" she asks. Sherley and London shop all over Shenzhen, and London likes to mix and match her outfits. She enjoys name brands like H&M, Gap and Mini Boden, but also spends a lot of time digging through the boutiques at Sea Taste Mall in Shekou. Sherley says that she's never really asked her daughter about her fashion obsession before. "I guess I took it for granted that she loved clothes and has been experimenting with them since she was 3 years old." London has been living in Shenzhen since 2013 and attends Shen Wai International School in Hongshuwan.

Sophia, Bianca and Emilia Sori Meet Sophia Yukiha, 6 years old, Bianca Seina, 4 years old, and Emilia Wakana, 2 years old. The Sori girls attend an international school in Guangzhou and love posing for the camera, as Mom always has it ready. We asked them a few questions about their preferences.

Where do you usually shop? Sophia: We love picking up select pieces when we head back to Japan for holidays. Japan has some great independent designers for children’s wear. Korean brand apparel is very popular as well, and all three of us love the styles. Our favorite material for dresses is chiffon, especially in colors like blue, pink, silver and gold. We love traditional Japa-

nese costumes too, which helps us identify with our heritage and culture.

As sisters, do you have similar or different tastes in clothes? Bianca: We always follow what our eldest sister Sophia wears. She sets the trend for what’s hot and what’s not, and Emilia and I follow suit. This also means that there are plenty of handme-downs for Emilia in particular!

Any tips for our readers? Sophia: Always take care of your skin. It's a very important organ and must always be pampered. We love make-up too but it’s not normally allowed as

Mommy says we must be older to use it. Also, when thinking of what to wear, make sure you choose the right combination of colors for your skin and body type.

The PRD is a hive of fashionable social events and there’s always something or the other happening. Here are some snaps from two recent fundraising events, both for wonderful charitable causes.

Guangzhou Australian Community Melbourne Cup 2015 It’s been called a race that stops a nation, and this could not be truer. On Tuesday, November 3, in the ballroom of The Ritz-Carlton, Guangzhou, more than 150 race-goers attended the Melbourne Cup event in Guangzhou – the Aussie version of the Kentucky Derby. The Cup is famed for its fashion on the field, with ladies wearing elegant dresses and 'fascinators' – fancy, formal headwear with a decorative design made by a milliner – and gentlemen in smart suits. Everyone turned out in chic attire for an afternoon of free flow of drinks and a buffet lunch. It was a feast for the eyes! The charity event raised funds for local charity Hopeful Hearts, which assists children in China with heart conditions.

Saturday, October 17, marked Captivating International’s 7th Annual Charity Gala & Auction once again at the Futian Shangri-La Hotel in Shenzhen. Attended by a record-breaking 597 guests from Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the evening was awarded the “best event ever” label by many long-term event attendees. Special thanks go to their amazing auction committee and team for so many hours of detailed work. The results were worth it. A massive RMB1.36 million was raised to support the work of Captivating International in Western China and Nepal. This will enable Captivating to reach out to over 5,000 children over the next year.

Student Roundtable

Fashion passion


ashions fade, style is eternal. — Coco Chanel,

So true is the above quote from one of fashion’s greats, that we simply had to ask some students at Canadian International School of Guangzhou what they made of it. Edward, Renee, Purity, Julia, Amml and Raghd sat down with Urban Family to discuss what fashion means to them, their personal style, their fashion mentors and why they look up to them.

Special thanks to Canadian International School of Guangzhou for conducting this student roundtable. 38 www.urban-family.com

Renee, aged 11 - Grade 6 Fashion to me means wearing the clothes that work for you and what is popular today. I like the way that Emilie de Ravin, who plays Belle in Maleficent, carries herself and the clothes she wears, like longer skirts. My style is more fancy, but I also like to be comfortable when I'm home. I don't think that style lasts forever, it will change as you grow older.

Julia, aged 8 - Grade 3 Fashion simply is the clothes that I wear and what others wear. I look up to my mom because she likes to dress up and looks beautiful. I like dresses, mostly, wearing hairpins and lots of color. A colorful style is my style. I agree that style is eternal – your style will always be the same, but fashion today may not be the fashion of tomorrow.

Edward, aged 11 - Grade 6

Purity, aged 7 - Grade 4

Fashion is not about looking good but about showing your creativity. I consider my mom to be my mentor when it comes to fashion because when I can't make a decision on what to wear or what is suitable, she always has the right answer. I like casual, simple styles, but on special occasions, I opt for nice denim pants and long T-shirts – that is what I really like to wear. I agree that fashion trends will change, but your style will always be the same.

I like to express my feeling with clothes and no one should feel bad about your own fashion. Zendaya, the singer and dancer, has great fashion, and she follows who she is. I feel like my style is more like comfortable and tomboyish, but I still want to feel like a girl. The older you get, I think you forget about the older fashions that were popular, but my style will probably always be the same – it's who I am.

Amml, aged 10 - Grade 5

Raghd, aged 10 - Grade 5

Fashion means dressing the way you want and choosing different styles of outfits. My mom chooses lots of colors that match, those that mix and match, and knows what looks good on me. She always looks for that perfect combination. I feel that the style of matching colors will never fade, but the clothes that you wear will show your individuality.

I like clothes that are comfortable and with more dark colors, so that's the fashion that works for me. My friends and I talk about different fashions, so I look up to their advice. They like to wear fancy and colorful clothes, which is what I like, too. I think that the fashion of colors will always change, but my style and the type of clothes that I wear will never change.

I absolutely love birthdays. That amazing feeling of the best day ever. Happy energy bounces of the walls, Shiny, steamy candles. Gifts stacked as bricks, Divine, crunchy cake. A parade of friends, and flashing lights. Cake, it’s just as good as steak, but more heavenly. Now I can’t wait for my next brthday!

Dinosaurs … Friends or Foes? By Shaan Nankani,

The British School of Guangzhou

A Pterodactyl flew through the big blue sky, Unfortunately it got trapped and gave a big loud cry, "I was searching for food in this scorching heat. "What a dreadful situation! There is no way to escape or find retreat." Along came a T-Rex stomping his feet loudly, He looked at the trapped Pterodactyl and said proudly, "I create havoc and crush everything in my path. You poor soul, you don't deserve such fury and wrath." The T-Rex chewed the net and set the Pterodactyl free, And he flew back to the top of the tree. The T-Rex yawned and stomped back home to rest, While the Pterodactyl curled up in his nest. Could it be true… That a T-Rex and a pterodactyl can be friends too? That would change everything about the pre-historic time, And dinosaurs could be walking on earth fit and fine.

Hajira Kamran


s student director of the Shekou International School annual fashion show, Hajira Kamran is no stranger to fashion and the limelight. The 17-yearold has been involved in the event for the past three years, and the show is a big event that is attended by school community and general public, and raises money for worthy charities. The participants, from models to designers, take it very seriously. So how does a high school student pull it all off? Urban Family recently had a chat with this entrepreneurial student. Let’s hear it from Hajira! Hajira, Tell us a little about yourself. I was born in Pakistan and moved to Chicago with my parents and sister. Later we moved to Malaysia with my parents, sister and brother, then to Singapore and finally to Shenzhen when I was 13.

How did you become interested in fashion? What are your main interests now? I think I got into fashion how every other normal teenager does: through watching Gossip Girl, Project Runway

42 www.urban-family.com

and all of that. My main interests right now are more geared towards politics and literature. Not the most exciting stuff for everyone, but I think I got into it because of its relation to society (or fashion). Understanding how certain things work has helped me develop more of an immunity to certain pressures. How girls dress and how it is perceived has always been a topic that I’ve been interested in, like some form of a societal issue I guess. I guess being more accepting of all dress senses and types of people through this interest in political/social issues has helped me expand my own fashion.

How has your fashion sense evolved? My dress sense has definitely evolved into a much more original one, versus the generic tween fashion I followed as a freshman. As I matured, and my interests did alongside, so did my fashion sense. Currently my dress sense is best described as artsy, probably. I’ve gone from skinny jeans and awkward crew necks, to flowing tops and boyfriend jeans, or I try to change it up with skinny jeans and floral tops. This will evolve after I graduate because being in Western countries, the US/England, will give me the opportunity to adopt their type of fashion. This basically means that brands like Topshop, Forever 21 and independently owned thrift shops will be of easy access.

How did you become the director of the Fashion Show? I have been involved with the fashion show since I was 14 years old. I'm 17 now and managed to somehow make my way up the ladder to become the direc-

Hajira Kamran

tor of the show. As fancy as the title is, I definitely don't do all the work. Currently, I am lucky enough to be backed up with a team of creative students who have similar goals to me when it comes to the show. As for the directing, I guess it comes pretty easily to me because I did step my way up the ladder – from designer, to photographer, up to what I am now. I also know what I need out of this year’s show, so it's just a matter of ensuring it all comes together on the big day. I have been involved with the show since I was 14 and seen the failures and successes. My favorite part of the event is always the last few weeks, which are an accumulation of stress and excitement and runway walks and arguments. I am determined to make this show more than just clothes that will later be thrown away. I am excited for it to have a greater purpose and impact beyond one night.

What do you mean? What is your ultimate goal for this year’s show?

My first goal is to have a completely student-run show: models, designers, photographers, set, everything. My second goal is to give back to a larger community. That is obviously the larger, more important aim. I am currently looking into multiple national and international charities. My focus is on education equality/supporting women's entrepreneurship. This is a really big issue in Pakistan, where I'm from. Young women are forced into marriages and when they eventually get out, are unable to be self-sufficient. It's something that I think needs to be both helped and also publicized; the show will be a platform to achieve both things. Even though it's still early days, I am already planning the next fashion show in February and look forward to doing much more after I graduate from school.



orking in the fashion industry isn't easy. Sometimes you have to start early. The best time to start is when you’re young, as time is on your side and you will have decades of creative evolution ahead of you. And if you’re wondering where and how to start, look no further than your school and in your art and design class. Your school is a wonderful place to get those creative juices flowing; it will set Tell us about yourself. I am 17 years old. I am a student at Utahloy International School Guangzhou, and currently in Year 12 doing my International Baccalaureate Diploma course. I hope to go on to study in the US For my final DP Art project , I chose to handmake and present two pieces, both of which I hope will be well received by my audience .

Grace He

you in good stead for a great future. Urban Family spoke to Grace He from Utahloy International School Guangzhou, who is making her mark designing fashionable pieces whilst still at school.

Tell us about what you have created. This piece (pictured left) is titled 'Life.' It is one of two pieces entitled 'Life and Death.' It symbolizes the coming of springtime and the rebirth of nature in the month of spring. The shape of the dress is inspired by a cabbage and also by tradi-

tional Chinese clothing from Taoism, an ancient tradition of philosophy and religious belief that is deeply rooted in Chinese customs and worldview religion. My second piece is still a work in progress and will only be ready in December. I look forward to showing it off soon.

What does fashion mean to you? Fashion design is a unique way to express ideas and imaginations. I love this field because I have always wanted to be a fashion designer ever since I was a kid, and I love to create dresses for my dollies. So this time I tried doing things that I have never done before, such as creating fashion pieces for humans. I am also very interested in animation, and would also love to study this in the future.

So it’s not surprising that come January, many of us feel the need to set some pretty lofty goals. The thing is, only 8 percent of resolution makers

Work smarter. Rather than overtaxing my brain and body, I want to find ways and resources to smarten up the process, starting with little things like a neater showroon to help me work more effectively and inspire me more.

My new year's resolution is to keep in better contact with family and friends back home and to share more of my experience here with them by writing a blog. I also want to do more things that I have been afraid to do out of fear of the opinions of others. My series of terrible lounge cover songs is due out Summer 2016.

Our family favorites

Guangzhou families share their top tips


eet Teun and Nausikaä, parents to Aiden (9), Jools (7) and Lenn (5). They have lived in Guangzhou since December last year so their first year is almost a wrap! They hope to stay on in the city, and they have really enjoyed exploring the many attractions. They have also embraced the language, with the children taking regular lessons in Chinese. The three children go to The British School of Guangzhou and really enjoy it there. Urban Family spoke to them to learn more about their family favorites. Favorite restaurant

We have a few favorite restaurants but Roku Roku is definitely on the top of our list. We normally like to go out with the kids to have something to eat at a pub or bar, so that they can run around a bit. But if we want to have a good meal, sit at a table and really enjoy our food, Roku Roku is a recommendation! It serves quality Japanese cuisine, with a beautiful interior and friendly service. If you want you can also sit in the teppanyaki room, were you can eat in private. There’s plenty to choose, from different sorts of sushi to fish and other Japanese dishes like curry. 1/F, Xiang Long Garden, No.175-181 Tianhe Bei Lu, Tianhe District, Guangzhou

Favorite chillout cafe

One of our most favorite chill-out cafes is the Tavern. Every Friday night we meet up there after work, to start the weekend. The kids can play, while we enjoy some pool. And if Uncle Johnny is there, he is always busy with them! They love him! We always eat in a tapas way, ordering small bites during the night. The food is mainly Western but really good, it's made fresh (like the fries and pizzas) and it's just really delicious! Sometimes, for a change, we also like to go to Hooley's on Xingsheng Lu. It’s usually busy when when we come, but the service is always friendly and the food is just great, like their burgers, nachos and pizzas!

Favorite place for Thanksgiving and turkey

Since we are from Holland, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving! For us, it's just a regular day,

48 www.urban-family.com

so sadly there is no turkey! But because we live in a residential area with people from all over the world, we will probably join in with the festivities like we do, for example, with Halloween. This is the first time the kids have been involved in trick or treating. And we loved it! Hopefully this will also be the first year we enjoy Thanksgiving by having dinner with our friends!

Favorite fashion designer

Since I, Nausikaä, have two online shops selling kids clothes, I love to go to the wholesale markets like Zhongshan Ba Lu and look for new, small and creative brands for my shops. And most of the time, I also shop there for my kids too! And just like in Holland, we also just buy our basics at H&M and Zara. But mostly I like to buy small, unknown brands that sell unique clothes. My husband, on the other hand, prefers the bigger brands. He loves to wear Hugo Boss but we haven't found a good shop (read: not fake!) here. So he shops for his clothes and shoes when he goes back to Holland.

Favorite Christmas holiday spot

Last year, we arrived in Guangzhou just a week before Christmas and we spent our holiday here. It was just lovely, as it was the first time that it was just the five of us exploring our new home. We had dinner at Paulaner Brauhaus, a German restaurant at the rooftop of TaiKoo Hui Mall, and it was just perfect. Good food and great atmosphere! It was a really nice Christmas, even though it was the first time without our friends and family. This year we will go back to Holland for Christmas to celebrate the holidays there. Just at home with our friends, visiting family and enjoying wintry days with our loved ones. Paulaner Brauhaus: L307, 3/F, TaiKoo Hui Mall, No.383 Tianhe Lu, Tianhe District, Guangzhou

Our family favorites

Shenzhen families share their top tips As we are vegetarian, I leave the turkey to the meat eaters! But I love all the sides! I never liked cranberry sauce until I made it from a really easy recipe. Now I'll eat it year round if I see cranberries. At Thanksgiving, I'm usually baking sweet potato casserole and pumpkin pie. China has shown me how to do a lot of food from scratch and it tastes so good. We don't eat alone though. We join our expat community, who are our family overseas. Everyone brings a dish or two. As I'm making Thanksgiving preparations, I always listen to Alice's Restaurant, musical monologue by singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie. It’s a family tradition. But there's never too much festive food in my opinion. To enhance the celebrations, we'll also most likely go to a restaurant that serves us Thanksgiving favorites and meet other expats and kids in our community, which is Luohu.

Favorite fashion designer

Favorite restaurant

We love this pizza place near Changlong metro station called Pizza Pi. The owner is a Westerner. He and his wife make the best cheese pizza in our opinion. They make many kinds of pizza, and also do coffee and pastas. Their little girl is also a sweet playmate for Rosi while we're visiting. It might not be convenient for some foreigners in the western parts of Shenzhen, but if you're ever in the area, it's worth getting off the beaten path to find this cozy pizza shop. Sometimes they even have live music, with guitar and singing. The owner also plays bagpipes, and it’s good fun! No. 41-5 Buji Chang Long Lu, Longgang District, Shenzhen. (Beside Buji Middle School and High School, 400m from Changlong Metro, Exit C2)

Favorite place for Thanksgiving and turkey

My favorite fashion designer is Zooey Deschanel because of her simple, feminine theme. However, Rosi is really into fashion designing for herself. She's designed a floral cape with hood for herself and dresses for her dolls. She's always drawing dresses.

Favorite Christmas holiday spot

The first thing I learned to say in Mandarin was how to order something even better than hot chocolate with marshmallows, it was hot chocolate with pudding! We haven't been in Shenzhen for Christmas before, but in other cities we liked to find Santas (statues or real) and take our pictures with them. So we'll probably be visiting the malls. It's sort of like our Where's Waldo. In the past, when she was younger, places like Gymboree would have open holiday parties, but we will probably look for something a little more 'big kid' this year. We look forward to seeing what Shenzhen can offer.


eet the Haleys. Cory is a full-time high school teacher. She works in the international department, preparing high schoolers for college overseas. Cory’s daughter is Rosi, aged 7. The family arrived to Shenzhen this year in June and didn't think finding a school would be such a hassle, since Rosi has attended school for years in other parts of China. However, it was not as easy as they thought. Luckily, they found an online international school called Connections Academy that is meeting Rosi's educational needs at the moment. For now, they are content with the path their lives have taken and are looking forward to 2016. Urban Family sat down with the Haleys to learn more about their favorites.

Conghua and Qingyuan

Hot for hot springs this winter By Lena Gidwani


he healing powers of hot springs have been used for thousands of years and are widely accepted as natural treatment options for various common ailments. The therapeutic use of water, or balneotherapy, could be just what the doctor ordered when it comes to relieving pain, stress, skin woes and more. The water found in natural hot springs contains a variety of different minerals, including calcium and sodium bicarbonate. When you bathe in a hot spring, your skin soaks in these minerals and your hydrostatic pressure rises. As this process continues, circulation and oxygen flow increases, much like when you exercise. An oxygenated circulatory system is beneficial in keeping not only your heart, but also your body’s other vital organs and tissues, healthy and strong. In the PRD, both Conghua and Qingyuan are very popular for natural hot springs. To get the best experience, opt to stay in a resort this winter; it will truly make the getaway sweeter and warmer. Here are our favorite resorts in Qingyuan and Conghua.

Dusit Devarana Hot Springs & Spa

Consisting of 133 villas and guestrooms, the Dusit Devarana Hot Springs & Spa, Conghua is the first internationally branded lifestyle and hot springs luxury resort in Conghua. The resort offers a full range of facilities. For relaxation, soak in a choice of indoor or outdoor hot springs pools, situated amidst lush greenery. There’s a wide array of therapeutic and aromatic pools and spaces to unwind in the resting area. The renowned Devarana Spa offers Thai-inspired massage treatment where guests are pampered and rejuvenated by the warm, gracious service synonymous with Thai hospitality.

GIVES International Food and Fun Fair By Matt Horn


ny parents looking for a fun family way to spend a Saturday, while helping charity at the same time, should bring their kids along and head to the Canton Tower on Saturday, November 28. Guangdong International Volunteer Expat Service (GIVES) is hosting its annual International Food and Fun Fair at this very special venue as the charity celebrates its 20th anniversary. As always, it will be an exciting mix of fabulous food and drink from around the world as well as fun activities and entertainment. This year there is the added ingredient of seeing the Canton Tower’s Christmas lights turned on, fol-

lowed by an evening concert. Opening at 11am and closing around 9pm, it is expected to be the biggest and best event in its proud history. GIVES President Rosaline Yam, one of the founders two decades ago, said: “It is a great venue that offers us the chance to get more people involved, offer an even wider range of food and fun, and reach out to the whole community here in Guangdong, both locals

and expats. At GIVES, we have the motto of working ‘Hand in Hand,' which means we want to work together with the local community to continue to make a real difference. Our current focus is to make a difference in the way autism is treated here in China.” Raising money for charity has never been more enjoyable, so head to the Canton Tower on November 28 to experience all the fun of the Fair. . Date: Saturday, November 28, 11am to 9pm Venue: Canton Tower For more information or to participate, check gives.cn or email volematt@hotmail.com




Date night

Keeping that spark alive By Lena Gidwani and Christine Gilbert


Date your spouse!" the relationship experts always say. Just because you're hitched with a loving family doesn't mean the spark has to die down. So what do you have to lose? Find that time and don that sexy dress or suit, and make it a point to get down to a new spot for some good food and wine, sans the kids. Urban Family scoped out two places that will help you get your groove on.




Date night luxury Housed in Taikoo Hui, on the same level as the likes of Tiffany and Dior, TWG, which stands for The Wellness Group, is doing to loose-leaf tea what a haute couture fashion designer would to raw fabric. More than 800 single-estate fine harvest teas and exclusive blends are painstakingly handpicked. Stored in flamboyant artisan tins on wood-paneled sliding walls that surround hardwood tables, the brews are gently concocted on an oldfashioned tea counter by trained connoisseurs, accompanied by fine bone china and an 18-karat gold teapot.

The place to see and be seen tossed in Blue Pavilion teainfused vinaigrette. The lobster timbale (RMB200) is a deep sphere of marinated lobster and avocado sprinkled with coriander and chives, then drizzled with a to-die-for Love Me tea-infused vinaigrette. The trio of mini burgers (RMB180) is an indulgent selection of foie gras, chicken and beef paired with shallot confit and fresh apple chutney, and the crunchy herb-crusted salmon (RMB180) is exquisite and melts in your mouth with every chew.

Accompanying this, try the dulcet rose (RMB80), a pinkIf the attention to aesthetic ish mocktail of lychee juice detail is already making you and Bain de Roses tea; the swoon with desire, the teaprestige (RMB100), a tall infused gastronomy will flute of sparkling white wine surely send you over the with cinnamon notes from edge with lust.

Shark has achieved mean girl-like status in Coco Park: some Shenzheners love it, some hate it, but all know it. With few fine dining options available in the immediate area, Shark quickly became the place to see and be seen shortly after opening earlier this year – with some customers even proposing there. However, this wine and oyster bar with its international team of cooks, servers and hostess is happy to make any occasion special, proposal or not, should patrons contact them beforehand and request help planning. Also, it’s not only a wine and oyster bar as their daily lunch buffet (RMB68) features a wide assortment of cold cuts, cheeses, soups and desserts, making it a solid contender for an economical yet swanky ‘date lunch.’

For those wanting to go big though, make a dinner reservation for Saturday or Sunday night and sit at one of the tables on the spacious outdoor wooden deck. Each gleams with soft candle light and a single rose in a glass bottle, completing the romantic vibe. Order the La Lune n°2 oysters (RMB288/six pieces), the Hokkaido scallop carpaccacio (RMB158) and the Australian Angus prime rib (RMB880) for a filling meal and pair it with one of Shark’s many fine wines, like the Bisol, Belstar Prosecco (RMB55/glass). 1/F, Shopping Park B, Mintian Lu, Futian District, Shenzhen 深圳福田 区民田路购物公园B区一楼 (0755)

Kid-tested, parentapproved

Restaurants that welcome your youngsters By Lena Gidwani and Christine Gilbert


hile a fantastic atmosphere, menu and location are essential, the questions parents are always left asking are, “What will my kids eat?" and “What will my kids break?” Urban Family wants to know the same, so we reviewed a couple of restaurants to see if they're worthy of our 'kid-tested, parent-approved' stamp!

S.E.Asia Kitchen & Bar


Asian comfort food at Shangri-La Hotel, Guangzhou If you are a transient family like many of us, chances are that you’ve brought your kids up in more cities than just Guangzhou. That can only mean that your children have been exposed to food cultures and cuisines that span the tastes of many countries. One of the most satisfying cuisines is that from Southeast Asia, and the best place for such food is S.E.Asia Kitchen & Bar at the Shangri-La Hotel in Pazhou. Featuring a grand selection of the most traditional, authentic and popular dishes and street food from around South East Asia, the restaurant has an

ongoing rotation of visiting chefs to keep it interesting. It serves up favorite Asia comfort foods with some lively drinks such as Thai lemonade (RMB50) for the young ones, and a lemongrass capirinha (RMB98) to make it a great night for all. Adults will love the Singaporean chili crab (RMB298). Arguably one of Singapore’s greatest culinary inventions, the

Pizzeria Alla Torre


Authentic Italian fare

What could be better for a child than fresh sea air, aquatic entertainment and a heaping bowl of Bolognaise? Well, maybe multivitamins and learning to share, but regardless, Sea World’s Pizzeria Alla Torre offers Shenzhen kids the good life: Italian favorites and front-row views of the water and light shows. A simple kid’s menu makes ordering easy with classics like spaghetti alla Bolognese (RMB48) or penne pomodoro (RMB45). The more adventurous youngsters can opt for pollo alla Milanese (RMB48), a plate of

chicken breast, mashed potatoes and spinach. Mom and Dad can sip a glass of Botter Prosecco (RMB38) or choose one of many options from the wine bar on Alla Torre’s second level. Pair with an appetizer, like the insalata di bufala e pomodorini confit (RMB55), a fresh mix of tender greens, Italian ham, cluster tomatoes, red onion and buffalo mozzarella. To follow, order the prosciutto crudo pizza (RMB78/8 inch, RMB118/12 inch), topped with parma ham, cherry tomatoes, fresh basil and shaved parmesan cheese.

chili crab is the dish that is fiery, juicy and imaginatively authentic. Also notable are the flavorful chicken skewers with satay (RMB88) and Indonesian beef rendang (RMB158), which is mildly spicy and rich. The char kuay teow (RMB98) and Hainanese chicken rice (RMB140) are recommended for kids – not too spicy and very delicious. Malaysian bubur cha cha (RMB48) is a great dessert for little ones. With colorful root vegetables and tropical fruits, the thick coconut-soupbased sweet concoction is the perfect end to a meal.

Thanksgiving Day Recipe

Seasonal roasted pumpkin soup with cinnamon and nutmeg By Magdalena Skalkowska


umpkin is one of the quintessential flavors of fall and an iconic Thanksgiving staple. But you know, it doesn’t always have to be about the pie...

This Thanksgiving, cook up this easy, seasonally spiced pumpkin soup for a great starter – wholesome, healthy and warming – with really very little effort required (unlike that pie). Naturally low in calories but high in fiber, pumpkins are a great addition to meals to aid weight loss. And, like other brightly hued edibles, this most vibrant of vegetables is a good source of the antioxidant beta-carotene, which, according to America’s National Cancer Institute, may play a role in cancer prevention.

For everyone to enjoy

All members of the family can enjoy this festive treat. The perfect texture for babies to eat, pumpkin is a great way to introduce that youngest member of the family to spices and herbs. Most pediatricians recommend waiting until eight months to do this and always follow the four-day-wait rule – introduce new foods individually, and with a four-day period between each food to monitor reactions. And, of course, discuss with your baby’s pediatrician before anything else.

Ingredients (for 2)

600 g of pumpkin (we used 3 mini yellow pumpkins) 500 ml of vegetable stock 1 tablespoon of olive oil Half an onion 2 cloves of garlic A pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg Cream and fresh coriander (for dressing)

56 www.urban-family.com


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. 2. Wash the pumpkins, cut into halves and scoop out the seeds. 3. Place the pumpkins on a baking tray, sprinkle with olive oil, season with cinnamon and nutmeg and bake for around 40 minutes (or until soft). 4. While the pumpkin is roasting, chop the onion and garlic, and gently fry in one tablespoon of olive oil, until soft – you can skip this step if you’re preparing the soup for little kids. 5. Now it’s time to add the vegetable stock, heating gently. 6. Once the pumpkin is soft, scoop the flesh from the skin using a spoon. Add it to the vegetable stock. Take the pan off the heat and carefully blend everything together, until smooth. 7. Return the pan to a low heat, season and continue to cook for a further three minutes, stirring as you do. If the soup is too thick, simply add a little more stock or mineral water. 8. Before serving, drizzle with cream and sprinkle with leaves of fresh coriander.

A white Christmas

White chocolate almond bark


'm dreaming of a white Christmas, with every Christmas card I write. May your days be merry and bright, and may all your Christmases be white... It's time to sweeten up the festive season with white chocolate, sweetened further with the lyrics of this song from Irving Berlin. This ivorylike treat has none of the cacao mass, hence the delicate color. It’s rich with cocoa butter, which gives it that suave, subtle taste that complements dark chocolate desserts and bolder flavors. This Christmas, compliments of The Garden Hotel’s Western Executive Chef Robert Conaway, we learn to make white chocolate almond barks, guaranteed to make you look like a gourmet dessert home cook!

Ingredients (makes 500 grams): 170 g almonds, whole palettes or chopped 200 g white chocolate, chopped 130 g golden raisins

Instructions: 1. Spread almonds in a single layer in shallow pan. Place in cold oven and toast at 350 degrees Celsius for 12 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until lightly toasted. Cool. 2. Melt white chocolate in top of a double boiler over very low heat. Remove from stove and stir in almonds and raisins. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto waxed paper. 3. Refrigerate until cool and hardened.

Chef’s tip: You can use dark or milk chocolate to create different flavor barks, just substitute using the same amount.

Special thanks to Chef Robert Conaway from The Garden Hotel, Guangzhou, for this lovely recipe!

Chef Robert Conaway is an American national with more than 27 years of experience and a passion for food, specializing in American regional, Californian, Italian, organic, pan-Asian and steakhouse cuisine. Best known for his Californian cuisine, Chef Conaway uses local ingredients with a twist, emphasizing freshness and authentic flavor. Each signature dish incorporates his unique style; rich flavors and colors elevate the senses and evoke the sunny shores of California. He brings his extensive knowledge and experience to provide an unforgettable American regional dining experience at The Garden Hotel, Guangzhou.




School events in Shenzhen O

n September 25, Shenzhen American International School organized the SAIS Terry Fox Run in Shekou, Shenzhen. The Terry Fox Run is an international event where people work together to raise money for cancer research as well as support cancer patients struggling with finances. The run raised RMB42,627, which was donated to the Shenzhen Children’s Hospital.


n October 14, Shenzhen (Nanshan) Concord College of Sino-Canada and the International School of Nanshan Shenzhen held their fifth Global Mental Health Day event as part of an international campaign for mental health awareness. This year’s theme was “Understanding + Respect = Hope.” Students enjoyed interactive activities such as the balloon toss, free hugs and face painting, while senior pupils taught their younger peers how to release stress in beneficial ways. All proceeds from the event were donated to Spring Care.


n October 24, 200 kids and their families from Buena Vista Concordia International School (BCIS) celebrated international cultures as part of their annual UN Day celebration. Over 30 booths representing more than 16 countries were available for children and their families to visit. About 450 visitors had a large range of activities and food choices available from around the world. There was even a live band. Special thanks go to the BCIS parents, faculty and students as well as our outside vendors for making this possible. Proceeds from the event was donated to charity.


hings have really been heating up in the Art and Design Department in Green Oasis School! The school held an ice cream making competition to bring the temperature down. Students were asked to create their most delicious flavors and came up with some weird and wacky ideas. Some of the initial sketches and drawings proved to be of a very high standard and it was obvious right from the start that the project would be a real winner. The project offered a wonderful opportunity for students to promote their product and impress on others the beauty of their creation by taking part in a photo shoot. Although only made from cardboard, string and paper clay, the appearance of the ice creams was incredibly realistic. The display certainly lightened the mood at the entrance to the school as it looked just like the real thing. It brought a smile to the faces of adults and children alike.



School events in Guangzhou C hinese Mid-Autumn Festival activities were held in the month of September at ISA International School Guangzhou, consisting of a series of events on the theme of maintaining Chinese traditions and the promotion of the national spirit of China. Another purpose was to further students’ understanding of Chinese festivals and customs.
