Shenzhen Weekly Round Up – Jan 23: Wishing you a Happy Holiday Week: Notes of Gratitude

Now Shenzhen   |   January 23, 2023

Dear Shenzhen-er,

As nothing of significance has come out in the news this past week - and in line with the holiday spirit - I thought I'd take the opportunity to express some of my personal gratitude to you, our community, and the world we occupy. Thanks to those of you that follow us and read our content - without you we have nothing. Thanks to our team for their tireless efforts to keep our platform relevant and up-to-date - I couldn't do it without you. In particular, a big thanks to Matt Ponchard who's efforts truly far exceed his obligations. Thanks to our collaborators and contributors - your input and expertise keep us informed and connected. Thanks to our customers for their trust in us and for their business. And finally thanks to the friends and family that support me and our respective team members - I think it's safe to say our collective sanity is in no small part thanks to your understanding and hugs.

Peace & Gratitude,

-David & The NowShenzhen Team

P.S. - Greetings from Thailand! If you're in need of information about traveling in and out of China please directly get in touch with me personally on wechat: david-d-ho. We've access to some of the most authoritative info on the topic which unfortunately I cannot share with you here. Thanks!
