I have been to Lychee Bay before, but only once. Lychee Bay located on Sai Kwan, it is the place now people called “Liwan district”. Sai Kwan is famous for its delicious dishes. As a old saying: Eating in Guangzhou, Taste in Xi Guan(Sai Kwan).
Panxi restaurant was first built in 1974, near Liwan lake, with five streams around, one called Panxi, later the small house got a name “Panxi”.
Panxi has outdoor ecological garden, rockery, koi fish in pond, half island-restaurant on the middle of the lake, two dining hall.
These are the camera I used. Borrowed a Sony DV camera, it has HD quality, small and convinent for hand shooting.
The first day of my project filming should be July 16th. In Guangzhou now is the hottest season over a year, ought to Guangzhou is always being hot, I still get worry about the weather.
I do not good at filming in beautiful colour tone, and in my plan the sky would be bright white and does not look good as my imagine.
I was worried while I shooting those citizens, or tourists. There’re so many people walked passing by, and I do not get their permission about shooting them.
Lychee Bay Stage, on the other side of the road near Lychee river, opposite BanXi restaurant.
The team was a group of elders, they were Yue Opera lovers, everyday afternoon the Lychee Bay Stage open for free performance, started 2:30pm till 5:30pm. Orchestra seat on the both side.
Big logo of Pan Xi Restaurant. It used to be red, but now its colour faded.
People waiting outside BanXi restaurant for a traditional Guangzhou ‘dimsum’ meal.
It’s not the day after July 16th, temperature goes up to 30 centigrade, can’t stand in UK, not even in Guangzhou. I stayed at home for 2 days to check out those film material, and reconsider about the possibility
