This weekend in Shekou - July 21-25
Welcome to ShekouDaily's Weekend Newsletter... Many of us have recently been suffering from Scattered Showers Syndrome. If you're feeling uncertainty about going out because it might start downpouring at any moment, or get confused about how it could start raining when just one minute ago there were beautiful blue skies, don't worry. You're not alone. In fact it's common here in Shekou. Luckily we have many dedicated professionals here that have vowed to put on great parties and events despite the rain and help us overcome this debiliting syndrome. Don't suffer any longer. Read on for a list where to go for treatment. Have a great weekend!
We'll continue to update this post with events as they come in so check back often.
