I have been living here for 17 years,

As long as the time I was at my hometown
Though I had lived in three other places
I like it here, good or bad
It is my second hometown.

Guangzhou...Crazy!

[size=-2]I have lived here for about a year. I find that almost everything is crazy here.
1. People here are crazy!
    a. Catonese are forced to speak Manderin. I am from Zhanjiang, Guangdong. My native language is also Cantonese, as well as the standard cantonese dialect both belong to the same language family, which is called "Bai" in Guangdong. The Cantonese branch spoken in my hometown has the same sound, but it's a little different from Guangzhou dialect in accent. I think people in Guangzhou are crazy. Some of the silly people in Guangzhou, actually troublemakers find that I speak cantonese with a different accent and make fun of me. Usually they speak Cantonese first. I usually reponse them in Cantonese to show friendliness. They get extremly excited and speak Manderin at once. I have to respone them in Manderin. Then they reply me in Cantonese. When they find that I almost can't reponse fluently and continue the dilague with difficulty, they become very very happy. A strange smile appear in their face just like people just escape from a psychiatric hospital. More and more people, including those used to speak cantonese as native language now speak Manderin now. I think my case stands for one of the reasons.

As to the above post... I have to say something

Yes, I know that Shenzhen is just an imitator. It's inferior to Shanhai in culture enviroment and city developmental level.But it is still much better than Guangzhou. Guangzhou is acctually a desert of culture.  It just keep copying almost everything in Hongkong. Ten years ago, I came to Guangzhou and I found it a good place because of the good social public order. However now everything has changed. Please look at the rising rate cases of of murder , sexual crimes, robberies, swindles and commiting suicide. At least one fourth in the internet happen in Guangzhou. Here in Guangzhou wether rich or poor, you have to wear well otherwise others will look down upon you. People here are very superstitious, in most of the restaurants, you can see the statues of Guanggong, which never seen ten years ago and it's just an imitation of  Hongkong. The appearances of Guangzhou is ok, but please go into most of the residential areas, of course I don't mean the luxuriou ones,  you feel they are very dirty, crowded and messy. When you go to do business, some of the people here will  just sit here and let you wait for a long time. You can often hear cantonese vague and obscene words, which abuse women's sexual organ every now and then even in a university campus.

just come here for 3 months, when talking about culture, GZ cannot compare with BJ&SH generally, but when come to business, how is it?
what about the development of each industry dept here?
i think different industry will bring in different people who will effect the life&city.
Where your heart is, where the treasure will be..
