    MLNL.HOST has straight line for services not labeled "no China bandwidth", open for millennials only.
    HostHatch and GreenCloud don't have straight line, avoid.

    Translation: "straight line" in MJJ-English means "direct connection without going through Japan or USA".

    Food vendors at Shanghai EXPO 2010 are expected to charge prices comparable to city center:

    • Coca Cola: ¥6
    • ice cream: ¥20
    • burger: ¥28
    • coconut rice: ¥40
    • steak: ¥70

    Gift cards and coupons are not accepted at the food vendors.
    List price is 30% higher than similar products sold in suburban area that my family lives.
    Hence, I cannot afford much food there.

    It's premitted to bring solid foods for personal consumption.
    Hence, before each visit, I go to the bakery and buy 6 cupcakes for ¥18 on the gift card.

    I visited Shanghai EXPO 2010 ten times.
    Admission ticket costs ¥160 per person from official ticket booth, or ¥100~150 from big yellow cows, but I never paid this price.
    Each residential address in Shanghai receives one free ticket (restricted to one particular month), and I used two of them.
    My mother received a dozen free tickets from her workplace, and I used seven.

    I purchased one ticket from a bus tour operator for ¥180.
    It includes bus transportation and more importantly a guaranteed admission into China pavilion, which otherwise requires waiting 3 hours outside the gate.
    I got the money by selling a normal ticket for ¥160 cash to a colleague who doesn't want to wait in line at a ticket booth or risk buying a fake ticket from big yellow cow.
