i suggested in one of my linkedin updates that, for all the troubles we've gone through, each every shanghai resident should get a free pass to expo 2010. the wish comes true, sort of. shanghai city government is sending out free expo gift pack to each shanghai household. we receive it this weekend. it includes one expo pass (cny160), one public transport ic card (with cny200 value), and a haibao pin. it's smart move, qualified household is family based on hukou card or shanghai residence permit, and single is not included.
