Three days of labourâ€™s day holiday started at May 1st. We made a big mistake to go to a most happing shopping street â€œGuanQian Jieâ€ at the fist day. There were people everywhere. We managed to go to a flower and bird outdoor market which sells plants, flowers, Chinese gardening decoration stones, and various pets. The market was actually very nice. A lot of greens made us relaxed.
At the market, we found a rattan furniture store and found a hanging a rattan chair I have wanted. The chair is attached to a metal bar and swings and bounces like a rocking chair. We almost bought it but we didnâ€™t know where to put it. It takes too much space on our balcony although it is kind of nice to hang around there.
We stayed the market by lunch time. I wanted to eat, but there were many people at every restaurant. Jesse completely lost his apatite by the noises. When he doesnâ€™t want to eat or doesnâ€™t know what he wants to eat, we will have a problem. Most the time he doesnâ€™t like my choice although he says he doesnâ€™t care or he is not hungry. It is better for our family to let him decide what we eat. We wondered around on the crowded main street and checked out a couple of restaurants. Finally we decided to go to a small Japanese curry restaurant/bar. It was Jesseâ€™s decision and good one (my decision was MacDonald. Now you know why he doesnâ€™t like my choice). The restaurant/bar is on a small street from one block away from the main street. I felt it was like an oasis. The restaurant was so quiet and played jazz. There was a bar counter and six stools, and two small tables against the wall. It is very small and narrow space and remains me restaurants and bars in Tokyo. The owner is a quiet cool looking Suzhounese who studied in Japan. We had a good home made curry for 15RMB and charged back our energy there. Unfortunately I didnâ€™t get the name of restaurant or street for you guys.
