Espina/GTOnce upon a summertime, at a bar in Beijing's Sanlitun bar street, a woman drinking a margarita approached me while I was drinking with friends.
She leaned forward and whispered in my ear: "Tiara, you might not know me, but I know you."I looked at her with a confused expression, trying to remember where we had met. She is in her early 30s, wearing a little black dress, sexy and cute at the same time.
