Macao and Shenzen Story Continued….

I saw Shekou Port Station’s gate at the front. It wasn’t clearly visible because it was directly heading to underground.

My Friend “The Fat” suddenly stopped my step to down the escalator after he called me to waited for him to bought something. Somehow the transaction happened, I only saw the Moslem trader gave code  an index finger and I saw “The Fat”  was carrying a hundred yuan. Ohhh … I thought he just buy a hundred Yuan.

OK … I just waited. Another trader came to helped him cutted the peanut and cashew nut cake then putted it on a small scales…. “a kilo”, I thought.

#patforehead …. “What is this, Don?”, “The Fat” felt sad and wanted me paid a half …. I asked him to paid all….it was no funny. “The Fat” often made unnecessary problems”.

Apparently he must pay 400 Yuan for it….Crazy. Drama on Shekou Port toilet had continued to “the most expensive cake in the world” drama. A kilo of cake for IDR 800,000

OK….What was the next drama?

After the incident, I immediately rushed to the platform for going to Fumin Station. I would put my backpack in Shenzen FOMO Hostel.

Situation in Shenzhen Metro

Arriving at Fumin Station, I confidently walked along Jintian Road, I only needed to read a simple map. Turn right from exit gate, passed 2-junction then turn left at third-junction.

I couldn’t wait to checked-in in the tent room on rooftop Shenzen FOMO Hostel. Couldn’t wait for the night to enjoyed sky in Shenzhen by sleeping in a tent.

The final destination of a map that I brought was an apartment which was guarded by a fat security who only could speak Chinese language. I showed him the booking form … then he tried to explained as much as possible with sign language while speaking chinese language … yes, I still failed to understood … haha.

Then, a senior high school girl came, the security guard called her and told her to talked to me….Finally, he could speak english….”shutdown … shutdown”…. the security guard crossed his arms on his chest….owhh….the hotel was closed….closed because of bankrupt….OK, third drama had happened … the last one was really shocking.

I tried still relax before do next plan….finally, I stopped by at Mc Donald’s for lunch. Shelter bus was the best place to take a break whenever fatigued to brought a backpack on my back.

After lunch, I decided to went to Dongmen “backpacker area in Shenzhen” to looked for impromptu cheap hotel hotel5Shopping complex situation in Dongmen

Arriving at Laojie Station “The Boss” looked for Local Sim Card. He wanted to called “Anggi” in Jakarta to booked a dormitory for us. While waiting for “The Boss”, I tried to sat on stairs in front of the shop. I approached a local girl who sat for waited someone.

“Do you know a hostel for backpackers near here?” … he took out his handphone from his bag….I thought she was understood.

But….evidently She gave me a English-Chinese translator application in her phone. Hahahahah ….So We finally talked via handphone. Every english question that I typed, she would read it in the Chinese column….so funny.

The conversation gave a conclusion for me to went to the end of a junction and there was a cheap hotel that had triple rooms.

Finally we stranded at Xin Chao Business Hotel. Only 300 Yuan for 3 person was required to enjoyed this business class hotel. It was OK for forgetting the sadness of 3 dramas all day in Shenzen.

At that night, I went to the fountain and light show on a cruise ship which was changed to a hotel and restaurant….and there was a fourth drama there.

Drama that always challenged me to travel anywhere …
