Lost

2L3Bs is a subscriber of the only english newspaper in SZ. The Shenzhen Daily (SD) became our major source of news about what’s going on around us. Since the US economic recession, the SD has added new article entitled “Crisis Hits Home”. There’s this daily article about local or foreign-invested companies and people who had been affected. But I agreed in Shenzhen Mayor Xu Zongheng’s views that even though there are at least 682 factories that had shut down prior to the recession, its impact to Shenzhen is limited..

Why?

Infrastructures are everywhere... New high rise has been sprouting like mushrooms almost on a monthly basis. Believe me, my son’s godfather who is staying here in China for a couple of years had travelled to Thailand from August 2008 and when he came back last Sunday he was surprised by the newly erected skycraper looming two blocks away from our home... That area was once a driving range so naturally, it was a flat land in August but now stands a 30-story high-end condo..!

Not only that... on my way to my China office, there’s this newly paved road few months ago, and you know what? They dug it out and replaced it with railroad tracks.. Traffic are everywhere caused by dump trucks and confusing leeways giving pain in the ass to the commuters.. Our office here in China was once a conducive place to work now irritated me because of the noise coming from the new factory buildings being constructed nearby.. One thing that comforts me is the belief that that particular factory buildings shall be finished in a flash anyway...

That’s how China do their thing, it is fast and efficient because they have enough manpower and resources to support.. This is one reason why I entitled this “LOST” because if you come and visit Shenzhen today and you get back after two months to the same place you first visited, there's a big chance that you’ll gonna get LOST...

For simple reason, the hotel you stayed or the road you travelled might no longer there to give way to my-so-called china’s new "Demolish-Build-Demolish Policy" to create more jobs to chinese people...
