One unusual fact about Shenzhen is within few walks from the city's industrial area comes a protected bird sanctuary. Famously named as "Hongshulin" by locals, the bird sanctuary stretches over a kilometer, its a major hub for migratory birds. Beside it is another long stretch of park dedicated for bird watchers. The bird sanctuary is barricaded with mangroves and bringing a good telescope and a good telescopic lens for your camera is a must or else you will be staring dots on the seaside.

Finally, Philippines will be sending a "lean and mean" team for the 2011 Universiade that will be held here in Shenzhen. Basketball team will playing on a nearby (my place) gymnasium (photo above) and expect me to bring a flag to cheer for them. ^_^
Teams from different countries will be setting their foot on Shenzhen Bay stadium (below) on grand opening of the said event this August.
The city rumoredly planned to held a 7 day holiday for the said event. (I'm crossing my fingers.) hehe.
