WT’s younger brother, WW, has been living in shenzhen for 9 yrs.

after the really delicious pig organs soup + braised pork noodlesat 东贝爱面科学馆outlet,

WW brought us around first to look at the electronic retail shops at 华强北on 13.9.2017.

these are of course like 100 x sim lim square, entire blocks of buildings selling goods & accessories, like 10x that in JB.

after that we took the metro to i think children’s palace 少年宫 station and walk up 莲花山公园.

the view atop 莲花山公园山顶广 was magnificient.

we can see the world’s tallest office building ping an financial centre at 600m to the south..

wonderful vista…

the deng xiao ping statue邓小平塑像 sstanding atop the 莲花山公园山顶广 was completed nov2000.

shenzhen development of course owed largely to deng xiao ping’s modernisation effort, the 14 coastal cities, after visiting singapore.

for me, 邓小平 was a giant in history, having touched the lives of 100s of millions of chinese & turning them for the better within one generation.

in cooler weather, this 莲花山公园山顶广场  would have been a perfect place for picnic, family outing, relaxation, likely mass taiji & yoga venues..

& there is guy doing water caligraphy to chinese music. i think maybe 高山流水.

despite the heat, a great outing & good exercise…lol!

afterwards we had an unexpectedly excellent lunch at a restaurant at the underground mall at the station.
