Fianlly, find a place to stay...
Now, I take out my LP book, very last minute. But it didn't help. Checked out some places recommended, there're either full; dirty/smelly; or out of budget. As when I was terribly hungry and tired, I walked pass this Jim's Peace Cafe, asked if they have room available. It was Jim himself talking to me. At first he said no, then when he looked at my desperate look and keep asking if he know any place to where I can stay, I think he realized by Chinese not very local. He asked: where're you from? I said from Hong Kong. Then he showed me the room. I must say, the dorm was empty with only one Japanese girl staying there. He said he rent his place local mainland Chinese before, and the place got robbed, and it just happened the day before another hostels' guests were robbed inside the room.
