I like to go to bars, parks, and Chinese restaurants near the community. I like to go to bars because I can relax with my friends and relieve my tired spirit and body. I like to go to the park because I can accompany my wife and children and make family life more perfect. I like to go to Chinese restaurants because the Chinese food is delicious, and my wife likes to eat it.

My neighborhood has a very humane playground, and my favorite is the nearby Hair Cafe where the coffee is really good
