In the warm light over mottled shadow, the graceful outline is covered with layers of vivid hues granted by the wind and dew ... No matter which majestic ancient castle or the soul of a temple foundation with one corner dilapidated, intangibly all of them are narrating, even singing, the evolution of time is so incredible.

The beauty of time resides in the inevitable transmigration of spring flower, autumn moon, summer shine and winter snow.
The beauty of time resides in the inevitable subtle traces, fragmentary city, dilapidated wall, cramped house and tumbledown roof.
Looking back on the Republic of China in the past 100 years, it seems not far away. The ruins of that time could be seen everywhere, and we often linger among them. Our parents' complex of the Republic of China is "Shanghai Beach", Xu Wenqiang's white scarf, Feng Chengcheng's braided hair. While our generation's complex of Republic of China is "Moment in Peking", Yao Mulan's elegance, Niu Suyun's arrogance ... Scenes of old-fashioned stories are replayed in our minds, such as cheongsam, old theater, emerald bracelet, gold pocket watch, small flower pattern ceramic tile and colored glass chandelier.

[Tiger Buddy] Hunan homestyle cuisine restaurant is located in a prosperous area of Loudi City in Hunan Province. It has been in business for more than 10 years, establishing a good reputation and a wide range of social contacts in the local area.

At the meantime, in order to coordinate the aesthetic tastes and preferences of contemporary people, numerous modern materials and manufacturing methods have been selected in terms of crafts and textures, so that the new and the old, the tradition and the modern could be seamlessly connected.
The designer does not deliberately pursue the novelty of the modelling but adopts a plainer design method as far as possible to reflect the technological quality of the space to the greatest extent, reflect the Republican temperament of the space, and create an elegant and sumptuous dining atmosphere. The diners seem to view from the window, creating a vague, real, simple and rich feeling of experience.
The rapid growth of age is disturbing. Although the hair on the sideburns is gray, he still keeps a young and surging heart. Playing with a gold goblet in hand and listening to the familiar tunes in ears, he remembered the music ever heard when he was young but drunk ...
