ShenZhen '07
first time to ShenZhen was an eye-opener. the culture and the society was quite difference from SG. one of the largest mega-cities in the world, ShenZhen is home to more than 11 million people. thus, poverty is no exception. kids here are much better off....

there are a night me and gohgoh was walking along the street (Hua Qiang area), this little girl suddenly tagged along with us. begging for sales of her flowers in hand, she was filthy and tiny. we declined, the more desperate she was. we noticed her glancing to somewhere all the time, as if someone was watching out for her "performance". true enough, there was a woman sitting not far gestering for the girl to "keep going",

the little girl went into fits of exasperation and clutched on tightly to gohgoh's leg ! it did not matter if she was dragged along the dirty street full of humans' spits. she begged, almost in tears.

we wanted to help.... but not this way of help. the woman may not be the mother of the little girl. children with bunch of flowers in their hands begging for sales are very commom sight in ShenZhen. are these children under the exploitation of some adult organization ? i hope something can be done to help these street kids...
