Shenzhen 1-day rush! Part 2: City Walk Walk

What a big a beautiful city Shenzhen has turned into!

That was what sprung into my mind when we drove slowing into the city struggling through the bad traffic jams on a holiday weekend.

Shenzhen look so different as compare to 10 years ago when I was first here. The whole city used to be so dusty, but now after their effort trying to built oasis up in over night, Shenzhen look so sophisticated in her own way.

Tall buildings are everywhere, shopping malls dotted the city streets. Wow...

Before we went to the Eastern Gate, we stopped by at the opposite road finding ourselves landed at a local market.

Dad was particularly interested at the food people eat here, and so we found him buying Cantonese style roast pork here. The roast pigeon seemed nice too but we didn't order it.

As usual, these chinamen always sell something illegal. Animal furs!!!

China (154)

As we walk a bit nearer to the Eastern gate, we found this big time distribution market distributing terrible things!!!!

China (168)

While awhile ago I claimed that all the sharkfins restaurant served these days must've been a clone one, at here, as you can see... millions and millions of sharkfin all dried up and well packed ready to be shipped out to prospective buyers, e.g. the restaurant in Malaysia, who knows!

China (162)

The fins are everywhere!!!!! Oh dear!!!!!

China (165)

China (166)

Apart from sharkfins, the seacucumber, starfishes, and seahorses met their creator here as well!!! We were busy with a pics, so much so eventually the security guard warn us to stop. Guess they know this business is not right!!!

Perhaps it is no more Sharkfin soup for me from now on!!! RIP to these poor sharks!!!

We then came to the Eastern Gate shopping street. People literally just hang around here, eating at the road side, window shopping mostly.

We follow suit on how people spent time here, by eating at the roadside standing too!

China (176)
Sour spicy noodle - Shiok!

China (179)
Cold koay teow peanut sauce - Yeek! Weird taste and vegetarian!

China (180)

Walk walk walk... found a lot of branded wanna be

China (181)
what the?!

Then went to the RBT (short form for Real Brew Tea) which serve my favorite bubble tea.

China (187)

Nearby RBT was this famous old shop (renovated though) that sells the Lou Porr Peng 老婆饼(wife biscuit) and good selection of crispy egg rolls 蛋卷 too.

Nearby the RBT place, there is this one isolated corner selling puppies. They seemed cute aren't they?

This pomeranian cost RMB1500 (can be bargained for a lot less it seems).

After the previous episode with the Sharkfin, I really feel the China people are terrible. Thus I tend to think that these dogs here were not treated properly as well. Most likely from an ill-managed dog kennel that deserved my boycott!!! Besides, I wouldn't trust them, when behind those alleys, they still eat dogs. Can never trust Chinamen!!!
