I should go shopping with them in the Nanning Department Store in the city center.
The car is coming. This is the first time I took a quick bus. Look up. There are doors on both sides of the car and there are fewer seats. The car is for people's parks. Many passengers are elderly people. All along the way is the warmth of people's seats: You sit, you sit … the original 50-year-old 60-year-old, 60-year-old 70-year-old, 70-year-old to 80 years old. A big sister gave her seat to a 78-year-old brother who said she was 73 years old. Big Brother said that 73 and 78 are not the same? The older sister said that he is 5 years old! I was funny when I listened to it. What was 5 years old? The 50-year-old snaps a finger.
As the city is building a subway and the bus cannot reach the city center, I had to get off early and look for the direction of the department store along the street.
The streets are lined with trees and high-rise buildings. As the so-called "half-city green trees and half-city towers", and the blue sky, white clouds and the sun, it is picturesque and pleasant. Many years ago, after moving with the work unit to the Jidong New Area, I seldom went to the center of the city. This made me strange to many people. I rely on the guideline of the unit number of the old day to get on the road. Once I encounter a unit relocation or no The door number, I was paralyzed.
A big sister came right up and I stepped forward and asked, "What is the direction of the department store in Big Sister?" she said with a smile: "Go straight and turn left." The stare at me seemed to meet an alien People, I hurriedly said "thank you" and fled. After walking up the road, I looked up and saw several characters in the "national mall." More than 20 years ago, this place was the most frequent place for me. I managed to manage my mother’s oil painting and still vividly remembered. From the mall's main entrance, it is Chaoyang Plaza and department store.
Half of the Chaoyang Square area has been occupied by the subway project under construction. In the past, the crowds were no longer crowded. Chaoyang Road, in front of the department store, was always full of people's heads when I was a child. It was very busy. Nowadays, except for a small number of eDonkeys who are rushing to work, there are very few people shopping. The roar of excavators and mixers was heard not far away, and subway works were underway in the streets.
I met my girlfriend in front of Mencora's department store and everyone entered the mall with a smile. It feels that there are more salespersons in the mall than customers, and most of the people who come in from the outside are just taking the road.
We also visited the oldest and most prosperous Xingning Road and Xinhua Street. In the past century, the foot of the water tower of the iconic building of Nanning, which was ranked with Nanning Department Store, Railway Station, and Minjiang Bridge, stands at the junction of Xinhua Street and Dangyang Street. Now it has become a protected cultural relic that witnesses the historical development of Nanning. Shops nowhere on both sides of the street are contrasted with scenes that flowed through the streets many years ago. Once I was engaged in the business sea, I couldn't help but have a sad, depressing business. How do the merchants still stick to it!
Later, I learned from a businessman’s conversation about their vision of the future: The central part of Nanning is still a commercial center, because the Xinhua Street underground passage pre-embedded a number of subway exits. Once all lines are opened, tourists from all over the country and even the world It will come one after another. Businesses can sell a variety of goods, and they can also set up vendors' information platforms to allow manufacturers to sell their own products through the Internet. As a result, the company's human resources and financial resources are the sources of value for renting paving traders. A business model in which information is pervasive, mobile soaking, complementarity, and win-win cooperation is coming. Now it is just silence before prosperity, and it will soon pass.
From the blueprints described by the merchants, my mind has also shown a spectacular picture: The criss-crossing overpass bridges the city's main roads and expressways, extending the high-speed rail, subway and airport routes in all directions, carrying Nanning to the world, and moving toward the unknown. future.
Although the old city of Nanning is being transformed, the construction of the new town on the outskirts of the city has long since erupted: the beautiful exhibition center, the ASEAN business district with high-rise buildings, the magnificent Nanning Bridge, the beautiful scenery of Qingshan Mountain, and the eco-friendly Fengling Homeland, the beautiful southern villa of Azure Aqua, exquisite and elegant European style town…
Traditional trading patterns and employment patterns in life will gradually be replaced by ever-changing technologies: WeChat deposits and withdrawals, WeChat payments, and a machine to know everything in the world; online shopping, online sales, big data forcing physical stores, banking, and insurance Reshuffling and rethinking the imagination; The smart light bar integrates lighting, video, air monitoring, and information release. A smart city that is spread throughout the smart system is approaching us at a pace that is getting closer and closer.
Nanning will become more beautiful and old Nanning will be replaced by the new Nanning. It can be determined that after a few years, it is not only our generation that disappears, but also the old Nanning that we have come along this way.
South was my birthplace. From babbling to old age, I never left her. Here, I recorded the joy of my childhood, the enthusiasm of youth, the rush of middle age, and the sedimentation of old age.
The scenery at each stage of life is like the four seasons of the natural world: Chunhua, Xiahuo, Qiushi and Dongshen. The difference is that the evolution of nature can be cycled, and the rhythm of life goes from flat to high, to low, and finally to no.
No, an era, a past, this is just a moment in the long history of humankind. We come from chance. It's just a dust in the red dust. What's so sad? Even if you are sad, you must feel grateful. Thank you for your destiny. Let us taste the bittersweet and sorrow, let us see the flowers bloom, let us walk through the colorful years.
All things are accustomed, and come and go without a trace, the commander is calm, contentment is often fun.
