We asked our readers to write an essay titled "My Day out with Shawn Mendes". Here is one of the entries. It has not been edited.

There are many places in Hong Kong for people to spend a whole day with excitement.If I had the chance to spend my day with superstar Shawn Mendes,I would definitely take him somewhere special.

In the morning,the Tin Hau Tmple at Causeway Bay,which was built over a century in the Qing Dynasty,is a very good place to visit.I would tell Shawn about the story of Tin Hau andthe traditional festivals we are still holding nowadays such as celebrating the birth of Tin Hau.The fantastic lion dance show is indispensable.After that,we would go to a cha chaan teng for lunch.Cha chaan tengs are unique restaurants in Hong Kong.These kinds of popular restaurants have been set up since the 40's in Hong Kong.I would recommend Shawn to try Yeung Chau Fried Rice and egg tarts because these are Hong Kong people's favourite dishes.

In the afternoon,we would ride on the peak tram and enjoy the fantastic view of the Victoria Harbour.We would visit The Sky Terrace 428,which is the highest viewing platform in Hong Kong offering a stunning 360-degree panoramic view accross Hong Kong.After undergoing the fascinating Peak tour,we would go to the Temple Street Night Market.We could browse around the narrow and hustle streets.We would search for budget goods and delicate souvenirs.The night market is a signature of Hong Kong where we could buy lots of things ,like trinkets,tea wares,electronic products and even valuable jade.We could enjoy the remarkable night view in market which has served as the backdrop to many memorable movies.

Dai Pai Dong is a great place for dinner.Shawn can experience eating at an open-air street stall.Eating at a Dai Pai Dong is a truly Hong Kong dinig experience as we could take a close look at the local street life.Dai Pai Dong provides a huge variety of stir-fried dishes.They are delicious and incredibly tasty.We would head to Mong Kok Sai Yeung Choi Street South and go busking with some buskers.I think Shawn would love this event because he loves music and wants to share his music with people over the world.We would join the buskers and perform in the busy streets.People must be crazy about the show as a worldwide superstar is performing in the street.It would be a wonderful day for both Shawn and myself.

If I really had the chance to meet Shawn,I would extremely be owed.I hope I can have the chance to see him personally one day.
