With a green allele in his hand, it was not a limited commodity, not a promotion, but a bowl of sugar water.Such scenes are not unusual for Hong Kong after nightfall, even a unique night scene.

People in Hong Kong call it "sugar water", and desserts are more important to Hong Kong people than dessert."People in Hong Kong live under a lot of stress. Eating sweets can help people relax and be happier."The storekeeper of the small shop "private room of the con-sister-in-law", feng xiuzhen, said to the reporter.

Drinking sugar water and worrying can sometimes evaporate like the sugar water.

Sugar water occupies an important position in the system of health maintenance in the pearl river delta.Summer drink green bean sand, horse hoof shuang shuang heat;In the winter, black glutinous rice, red bean paste has the effect of invigorating blood and invigorating qi.

The original sugar water is simply made from various beans, milk and fruit. It is added to the yellow ice sugar, which is slowly turned into a traditional dish, such as sesame paste and sweet potato syrup.Later, it has been improved to include all kinds of fresh fruits and coconut milk, mango juice, submarine coconut, and western rice dew.

The most typical as dew bakyjib na (or Yang Zhijin dew), is mango, grapefruit and the mixture of evaporated milk, sweet mango, grapefruit acid into flowing milk incense, as its beautiful name aftertaste letting a person is boundless.The continuous culture of sugar water has been passed on and carried forward in this way.

However, the charm of Hong Kong's "keeping guests' stomach" is facing a serious challenge to the growing business rents.Hong Kong's causeway bay has been the world's most expensive retail store for the second year in a row, overtaking New York's fifth avenue and Paris's champs-elysees.
