There are many reasons why it is really a blessing for us to have been able to live and work here in China particularly here in Shenzhen. There are lots of topics to discuss and issues to note but it would take me forever to blog that.. Anyway, my intro for today is kind of uplifting our sweet home away from home because here in Shenzhen is where you can find lots of timeless things that my blog friend Deanna would gonna love to collect.
During one of my shopping trips, I had found a bird cage candle holders so I bought one for myself and one for our new-found-friend Deanna. I hope you would like this as a simple token of our friendship..
NEW TOWN PLAZA SHOPPING TRIP
Aside from shopping trips to hundreds of interior design and thrift shops for home decors here in Shenzhen, we also used to go shopping in Hong Kong for buying clothes, toiletries, apparels and a lot, lot more.. I used to work and submit my sales report every Saturday in our Hong Kong Office.. So yesterday, myself and my daughter after my office hour, had a fun time exploring the New Town Plaza in Hong Kong where we shopped till we drop.. My company being owned by a Hong Kong Chinese descent do not give our bonus during the usual Christmas season, we receive our 13-month-pay during the Chinese New Year which falls on Jan 26,27,28 this year.. And yes, I got mine yesterday so my daughter really had a fantastic day buying gifts for ourselves, for our loveones and friends to be given away on our supposed chinese new year party on the 26th..
This is our Hong Kong Office Building.. I took the shot right after my office hour and meet my daughter so we can do our shopping in New Town Plaza, about 10 minutes drive..
My daughter on our way to the New Town Plaza..
This was taken inside the New Town Plaza, wherein a gigantic chinese lantern is on display to commemorate the Chinese New Year!!
Maybe the reason why they called it New Town Plaza is because it was basically located in an old Shatin Town and had just embraced the latest development.. I had the chance to shoot the photo of the brick houses near the highly-modern New Town Plaza where thousands of people shop.. You can see here the startling contrasts of the old and the new..
This is the way to the parking area of the New Town Plaza in Shatin..
This is the KCR station where the New Town Plaza is located.
We took our time to get our brunch here.. Gosh, we're so tired from walking and carrying shopping bags full of toiletries, clothes, apparels, chocolates and more..
Our brunch.. It's not that yummy though.. The shop offers japanese foods except that the taste are so much Chinese.. hays..
My daughter getting herself a hand cream in Marks and Spencer.. Marks and Spencer Hong Kong are offering 50-70% discount on some of their adorable items.. I bought one shirt there and it's really gorgeous.. I'll gonna wear it on our b-b-que party..We just love shopping there..
We ended our day resting in Ciao Bella Caffe where we had our mint-chololate and vanilla flavoured ice cream before heading back to China... We arrived home at 10 pm and very tired...
