We woke up pretty early to catch the train to ShenZhen.. So we took a cab to the Guangzhou East Railway station. Each of us had to pay RMB75 to get to Shen Zhen. Here's mum and Dad on the train. We were supposed to meet my Bro-in-Law at ShenZhen. Guess wad? On the way there, we met someone at the Dong Duan station.. And its my Bro-in-law!! Louis!! wahaha... So we dropped off at Shen Zhen at the Luo Hu station. The same place where people from Hong Kong alight to reach Shen Zhen. We were pretty tempted to make the trip to Hong Kong though.. haha.. We took the Ba Da Tong (Octopus Line) to Lao Jie.. The population in Shen Zhen is really scary.. So much more than Guangzhou!! Kind of had problems deciding where to eat.. So we settled for Ichiban Ramen... It was kind of s copycat version of Ajisen since the logo is a little boy holding a bowl of noodles instead of a girl..
This moment made me realise how brave my sister was to live in this area alone for 2 years. The trip to Dong Guan made me increase my respect for my sister by hundred times. Guess she suffered alot in this place during her two year stay there. Its no wonder why she quit her job at Fuyu to return here. The life there is worrying. If I knew how this was like earlier, I would have sleepless nights about my sister in Dong Guan. But I'm proud of her. She is really brave and independent.
After which, we made a trip to my sister and bro-in-law's place in Dong Guan. It is a nice place despite being located in a secluded province. There were nice gardens, clubhouse which u need to pay to use, and most importantly, security guards... Couldn't take the night scene though cuz its too quiet. But I had a few snaps of her house..
This is my sister's living room. They have a big and super flat LCD TV. This is kinda like the storage room where my sister stores her stuff.. I was really touched to see pictures of me, mum and dad in the room. Check out the frame on the table. That's my sister and bro-in-law together. Here's the kitchen!YAN wei: I'm not YAN can cook
YAN wei: I'm YAN can eat Here's the Balcony. The balcony is so big that I think the total area of the house excluding the balcony is the size of the balcony. Here's my sister's bedroom. It basically for sleeping and nothing else. So we made the trip back to the Dong Guan station to catch the train back to Guangzhou East. I felt so sad for my bro-in-law. Having to live in Dong Guan alone. The place is so dangerous. I'm surprise he's still alive in one piece.. Poor Louis.. But he said he is like a Warlord there. So no worries. Haha..
We entered a fakes shop and I saw the Gucci bag I liked.. After some bargaining,I manage to buy it for 60 yuan. Its silver and it had a scarf tied to it. :D Dave and I took another snap on the train back. Back to Guangzhou. Have to wake up early for our return the next day.
Guangzhou Day 5
Day 5 of Guangzhou was nothing much actually.. Except that we had to wake up at 6.30 am to get to the airport. The journey there from Tian Long hotel took 40 mins. So we had a good view of Guangzhou before we left.
