Sometime last week we were trying to redirect www.shenzhenparty.com/news to this site “NowShenzhen.com” as we are now using this site for all daily Shenzhen related news. We made an error in doing this redirect and accidently redirect all pages whose URL started with “/news”. This mean articles like http://www.shenzhenparty.com/news/shenzhen/560973-top-11-hotel-pools-shenzhen were resulting in 404 pages. This problem is now fixed and you can read about hotel pools. Sorry for the inconvenience caused.
The city is known for its world-building factories. Now it’s cultivating something else entirely: a global community with an experimental spirit.
Starting in Guangzhou Keepo 1979 opened in the new Xiamihu mall called 1979.
Now you can order cupcakes in Shenzhen for birthday parties, company parties and special occasions.
They offered me some coffee made of coffee beans from Kenya with a slight tomato taste.
I opted for the Strawberry cupcake which said it used Japanese milk.
Normally 25RMB they gave me a 20% discount which was generous and appropriate when I am eating cupcakes I am comparing them to the gold standard Sift in Hong Kong. Those are really the best cupcakes in Hong Kong and I regularly smuggle them over the border for friends and staff. This strawberry cupcake was filled with a a strawberry flavored filling and so gave me the feeling I was eating strawberry shortcake. Overall the taste was good but I am still partial to the Hong Kong cupcakes and the list price in HK is 25HKD and the list price in Shenzhen is 25RMB. Something doesn’t seem right here.
Keepoo is a good destination if you have a car or want to take a taxi you can sit outside looking over the Honey lake and abandoned Scooby Doo like haunted amusement park.
I saw a familiar face on their wall former long time Shenzhen resident Jesse Warren was sporting a cupcake filled grin.
