Shen Zhen, China
My vacation from work (February 23-29) was given justice because of this escape to Shen Zhen. Hogan and I just came up with the idea out of the blue. Nothing tops shopping so to speak in putting up your self-esteem. From Tin Shui Wai, it took us around 20 minutes to go there. By bus, then train. Walah! The border welcomed us. Got our visas in a matter of minutes then we're off. We've got a lot of stuff for a cheap price, that's what's important. But quality's good. Even if products from China are now considered controversial, we ignored the whole crap and just indulged with different offers. The very lesson that we learned today, is to go around and really go for the lowest bid. I speak of Hogan's experience. Don't just let go of your money right then and there folks. It helps when you would let them know of your price. If they don't agree, go out and let them run after you. Shen Zhen is the place where Mongkok merchants get their stuff. So, imagine how low prices could go. So, if you have plans of going there, be wise! Don't leave the place as well without getting a load of the foot spa (package: Manicure + Pedicure + Foot Massage) for just HK$55!!!!
