I went to a restaurant at the weekend. The decoration of the restaurant was very beautiful and the atmosphere was good. I ordered a number of dishes, including a seafood platter with fresh shrimp, crab meat and oysters. The dish is delicious and the meat is tender. I ate happily all night and had a good weekend.

I think there are many different kinds of goods in the shops nearby, which can meet my daily needs, and there is a park not far away, which is great!I think there are many different kinds of goods in the shops nearby, which can meet my daily needs, and there is a park not far away, which is great!
