Speaking

My husband and I took the subway to Disneyland, the last three subways were on the road, the window on the building are very small. Six years ago, Shanghai is not as strong as today, at that time, HK is same as today’s HK. When my husband and I went to a traditional restaurant, they will throw the menu to me.

When I went to another country like Canada or New Zealand, they are lazy, they are not care about their job. My friend live in New Zealand, they are very enjoy their life, if they want money, they go out for part-time job. I think almost people there similar.

In China, the Chinese parents always ask their to study hard, then you can go to the big city. Once I went to a traditional Shanghai restaurant, the service there was Shanghainese girl, you will found she mop the floor, she just mop before you.

First month when I live in Pudong, I always lost myself. Every restaurant close early, I’m very familiar of Pudong.

Writing

I have been to Hongkong 6 years ago before I get marriage. Before I have been there, all the impression of that city was from hongkong series. I went to there to buy our wedding rings because the Hongong is a tax free market. To be honest, I don’t like Hongkong after I visited there. The people at there were not friendly and the view of Victoria Harbour was similar as Huangpu river, the crowed street and the expensive price. All the things left a bad impression of Hongkong to me.
I am not surprise that Hongkong became today’s Hongkong and this is the inevitable result.
