Reminiscence. Unequivocal sentiments and longing. This is the place in which I grew up and gradually grew to become fond of.
This is the mooncake shop ‘ 大中囯’ (Da Zhong Guo or literally ‘Big China’) which sells mainly traditional mooncakes during the mooncake festive seasons.

I’ve never known how much of a ‘Chess Paradise’ this place is. As the saying goes,
‘Men do not quit playing when they grow old; they grow old when they quit playing.’
