We’ll be announcing the winner of Greenwave’s ClearFall shower filter (worth ¥998) on Friday afternoon.

Let’s be honest. If you look past the abundance of cool new restaurants and things to do every week, Shanghai has a fair share of problems that could make living here very stressful. The first thing that comes to mind is, of course, the environment. “Do I need to wear a mask today?” has become a routine thought in the beginning of each day.

it isn't fair

*Sorry, Beijingers*

We are all aware of the lihai air pollution, but did you know that China’s rapid industrialization and urbanization has also had serious effects on the quality of water? A quick research online points out to problems like high heavy metal concentration in the local water supply that runs through largely outdated pipelines. This results in undrinkable tap water, and there’s a consensus yet to be reached if boiling the H2O makes it okay to consume or not. 

greenwave info

To help put your mind at ease, it’s highly recommended to use filtering systems that ensure the safety of water use. Already celebrating their 8th anniversary, Greenwave is one of the most established companies on the market. Greenwave is also our partner for this week’s Winning Wednesday. Yay!


This third generation shower filter, combing the features of the previous shower filters run by Greenwave, removes chlorine effectively in both cold and hot water, reduces sediments, water rust and part of the metals, and makes water softer for better shower experiences. Showering in the filtered water, your skin and hair will feel so much better. Say bye to brittle hair, itchy skin or red eyes.

pocketful of sunshine

Unlike most common shower filters affecting the water pressure with one spray mode, the new ClearFall is thoughtfully designed. It will not just improve the water quality, but also intensifies the water pressure. With all these features, the product will help bring a more enjoyable experience than any other filter.

Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? Answer the question – how do you keep your environment clean and safe – before Friday to win. Because you deserve better. Good luck!

For your chance to win: What is your go-to late night meal?

Leave a comment by heading to this post on our WeChat account and tap the ‘Write a comment’ button on the bottom right hand corner of the post.


Scan to visit the WeChat post.

We’ll pick two lucky entrants to each receive a ¥88 dine-in meal including a crunchy taco supreme, chicken quesadilla, choice of shrimp avocado burrito or sesame chicken burrito, snack platter, and 2 free refills from Taco Bell.

Needing little introduction for expats from the U.S. and Canada, Taco Bell’s roots stretch all the back to the early 1950s in California, and they’ve been serving up tasty Tex-Mex under the official Taco Bell name since 1962.

They’ve saved countless numbers of people with their late night drive-thrus and affordable, munchie-satisfying treats over the years.


After a brief venture in China from 2003-2008 (any Shanghai expats remember Taco Bell Grande?), Taco Bell relaunched in Shanghai in early 2016 to the delight of homesick expats across the city; and improving on the hometown Ohio Taco Bell of our youths, they now serve up awesome cocktails.

Whether you’ve never known the earthly pleasures of this great chain or you’ve been ticking off the days since your last bean burrito, you’re in for a treat.

The brand’s fun, tasty, and special DNA is the same, meaning they’re offering great tastes just like back home, but with a beautiful selection of completely new flavours. The entire menu has been revamped and tweaked for a unique (and delicious) China only experience. You can’t get these bad boys back in The States. Don’t miss out on this exclusive feast.

Check out their core ‘Hero Products’ line-up that’s ready to impress your taste buds.
