The December issue of That’s PRD is out now, in both paper-and-ink form citywide and digital PDF form on our website. Here, Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons introduces the magazine:
And another one bites the dust: 2019 is just about over and we’ll soon be welcoming a new year on the Gregorian calendar. Prep those resolutions, folks!
In short, 2019 was a hell of year for me, personally; there were lots of grand adventures, new friends and colleagues and some difficult goodbyes (here’s looking at you, Byron). At That’s, we had some great cover stories and long-form features over the past 12 months, as well as some fantastic news, sports, lifestyle and arts coverage. On pages 34-43, we recap the year that was – the highs, the lows and the downright absurd.
Elsewhere in this issue, we provide an introduction to legendary writer Paul French’s newest project – a multi-episode podcast titled Murders of Old China (page 12). We also have a rad Christmas gift guide (page 20) and an informative Harbin travel guide (page 22) in our Lifestyle section, both of which are worth checking out.
I’d like to wrap this up by thanking everyone who attended our 2019 That’s Food & Drink Awards in Guangzhou last month, it was an absolute riot and I think I speak on behalf of all my colleagues when I say that we’re already looking forward to next year’s event. For those of you in Shenzhen: The 2019 edition of the prestigious awards ceremony will be rolling into town this month, so be sure to snag your tickets quick – before they’re all gone.
Until next month,
