Just a few more pictures I collected for fun in Shenzhen over the weekend.
1. The brand new Don’t go breaking my heart movie (named after the 1976 Elton John-Kiki Dee duet? not sure) showing in the Golden Harvest Cinema. I wasn’t brave enough to go and see it (thought it would be all in Chinese) but I see the trailer at http://www.mediaasia.com/dontgobreakingmyheart/ does have English sub-titles (and yes – totally what we would call a chick flick in the USA).
2. Looks like there’s scuba diving at the start and a cocktail party at the end of the blue line of this schematic of the Shenzhen metro lines ! The Eiffel Tower is a miniture one, from the Window of the World theme park.
3. Or there’s always Starbucks for coffee, this board from the location at Coco Park shopping mall . Here is a partial translation : 星巴克 xīng bā kè is Starbucks and 40 周年 zhōunián is 40 th anniversary of Starbucks/ 可可 kěkě is cocoa and 卡布奇诺kǎbùqínuò is cappuccino – the drink denoted by the characters in the five pink stars/ 巧克力 qiǎokèlì chocolate – an ingredient in one of the popsicle cakes/ (T)all (G)rande (V)enti – Starbucks for large/ even larger/ and enormous.
4. The model for a cell phone advertiser on a phone booth on the sidewalk is borrowing the iconic pose from Marilyn Monroe in movie The Seven Year Itch (1955).
