pass time in the open air between the blocks
I used to like going out in the city streets where you can't understand a word. I randomly ended up here in one of the new quarters somewhere close to Nanning provincial bus station, it's not even suburb here anymore because Nanning grew so huge, with block after a block mushrooming with irreperssible speed. These open areas, paved with concrete and surrounded by buildings, offer niches for people to hang out and socialize - and in the middle of day these activites were selling and shopping, playing cards and mahjong, playing pool and taking out the kids.
People pass time outside... yet these paved squares offer little of shadow, and behind high fences noises from another nearby construction site constantly penetrate somehow calm and moody air. As a foreigner here, you are noticed but there is atmosphere of some indifference towards strangers. They even don't get upset when you snap pics of them but from little of Chinese I could understand they said something of a Meiguo ren', which is often heard when they think we come from America because of light skin.

"Fire in the Wok?"
When it comes to frying - i mean real frying, the Chinese really does it best!. The fire is so strong and the wok is so hot that the fire just "flies" into the wok ....... The food that comes out from this frying is definately "thoroughly" fried! and to most Chinese, these are really tasty!

Free Reading - News for the Public
I love this! Everyone gets to read the news of the day for free. Newspapers are being pasted on framed glass panels for public viewing. These are normally found at entrances to parks , along pathways or nearby bus stops. We saw this panel at People's Park.
A great way to share awareness of what's happening!

A little peanut oil is rubbed on top of the "cake" The taste is a bit bland except for the smell of the millet.
5 Coloured Glutinuous Rice
Made by mixing the glutinous rice with 4 coloured plants leaves of Chinese sweet gum's leaves(black colour), yellow ginger, Hong Lan Cao (red colour) and violet plant (purplish in colour) and then steam in a wooden food steamer to cook.
