Typhoon Nida Photos of Coastal Rose Garden Shekou

on 08/02/2016 - 10:38 am

We took a short stroll down Coastal Rose Garden at 8am this morning to have a look at what kind of damage Typhoon Nida caused. There were heavy winds last night with gusts as high as 145 km/h so we were curious to see how our little town held up. Nobody was open (voluntarily) yet except for HH Gourmet. Here are some photos from our stroll (click photos below to enlarge).

What Happened to Mind The Gap and the Stage?

on 07/18/2016 - 12:48 am

It seems no matter what you do, nothing is guaranteed in this world. It was just over a year ago that Mind The Gap (MTG) bought into a bar in Shekou. The hope was to secure a permanent home for the band. Once again; however, their contract wasn't renewed and they were back out looking for a new gig.

After 11 years of playing live music in Shenzhen, MTG couldn't seem to catch a break. They bounced around from bar to bar and even had to leave Shekou for a while to make ends meet. This wasn't by choice. The main issue being the high cost of securing work visas for a five, sometimes six, piece band.


NOTHING LASTS FOREVER

In May 2015, they thought they had it all figured out. Together ...
