Wishing All My Friends A Very Happy Chinese New Year Of The Wooden Horse. May you have a successful and peaceful year with your family and friends. ~Anand Nav
Chinese New Year is an important traditional Chinese holiday celebrated at the turn of the Chinese calendar. In China, it is also known as the Spring Festival, the literal translation of the modern Chinese name. Chinese New Year celebrations traditionally run from Chinese New Year’s Eve, the last day of the last month of the Chinese calendar, to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the first month, making the festival the longest in the Chinese calendar. Because the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the Chinese New Year is often referred to as the “Lunar New Year“. For more Wikipedia.org info click here.

1001 Days completed of mine for having closer ties with the Chinese friends. A era this long will only keep on getting better always. Just need stronger business tie-ups to expand other sides of life. ~ Anand Nav
So yours truly Anand (me) , Marek and Leo went to McDonalds to eat some burgers in Shantou at the South China Shopping Mall in Shantou
First thing that we noticed was it being very crowded and it had no place to sit as well.
So while Leo was taking the order of our Chicken burgers, me and Marek were offered seats by 1 college girl and guy who spoke little English. But since we needed 1 more seat we could not sit with them. So we said thanks for their kindness and left.
Finally we got our order and quickly got 1 big seat while the family over there was leaving.
The burger was amazing and the French Fries were good as well.
While eat suddenly a beggar showed up!
It’s kind of amusing how a beggar came inside the this big shopping mall and no security staff took him outside in this South China Shopping Mall.
3rd thing that I noticed was the McD Toilet being in a terrible state. I hope that they really improve their hygienic things as its an international brand after all.
The staff told me that photography is not allowed. Which was kind of strange! o_O
Anyways the burgers were great and we will check back over here someday again for sure.
That’s all from me over here.
Enjoy the pictures and keep in touch.

Yesterday I tried Chinese bus for the first time. It was nice but the driver drove the bus in rough way all the time and Marek almost fell over a girl due to it.
Angry Shantou Bus Driver:
Later when we were riding in a tricycle, we were taking pictures and videos. At that time the Shantou bus number 24 came in the middle of my video recording. That bus driver got angry after I took pic of him and he stopped our ride and shouted ‘Why are you taking my picture?’
It’s kind of weird as he was the one who come in middle of my video. So I had to delete the video due to his bad/weird behaviour.
Anyway he left in short time and we got to learn something new from this incidence.
Okay that all for now.
Enjoy the pictures and travel safely in any country.
