How many homes do Chinese own?

Popularity 1Viewed 593 times 2019-2-3 22:47 |System category:Life

Yesterday on a public bus I heard a schoolboy calling via WeChat his classmate for an outing.
"Hey, so-and-so, do you like to visit (a name of place)?"
"Yes, I like that."
"Where are you now? You can take (a bus route) to be there."
"I am at home now."
"Which home?"
The last sentence made my mouth open.
The voice of the other side gave a name, which is a high-class residential community in our city.
Then I realized that now people in our city seem to have more than one residence, they live in the one near their workplace or school of their children during weekdays, then change to live in another at the weekend and holidays, which is their permanent home.

    Well, your nephew apparently had a good time.

    voice_cd: Well, he doesn't look like he has any development problem. Give him some time and I believe he will catch up. Thanks for sharing your story.
    Seldom do I visit this section of the forum, where there are so many interesting stories that can be shared with many other China Daily website visitors. However, the front page of the section seems to have been frozen, with some of the authors fixed there, leaving the impression that there is no change at all inside. So it is necessary for the admin to do something.
