Some years ago, I was posted to Malaysia for work for about two years. Whenever my colleagues from my home country visited me, they would bring me a copy of the newspaper from my home country. Even if it is a day late or two, it was very welcome because it alleviated my sense of homesickness and helped me keep in touch with the affairs back in Singapore.
When I visited a friend of mine in Tokyo some years back, I also brought her a copy of the newspaper from her home country. Needless to say, I got some free Yakitori that night !
I know there are many versions of digital newspaper out there in tablet formats but this does not match the real thing!
Next time you visit your friend or colleague based in Shanghai, bring him/her a copy of the newspaper if both of you come from the same country. It does wonders to an expat that has left his/her country for a long time.
