But one cannot stall forever and Mr Li leads us to THE ROOM. As he opens the door, a roach flies straight into his face. This is not good. THE ROOM looks ominous and smells like mouldy clothes at the back of a closet. pic.twitter.com/pIOZ8yQMaY— Elizabeth Law 思敏 (@lizzlaw_) April 16, 2019

I thought hiding in a doorframe near the exit was safe since it was far from the shelves. Then Mr Li's daughter shone a torch and I looked up.

The moment he flings the rack, it’s sheer pandemonium: the cockroaches swarm, they’re moving A LOT faster and no longer avoiding us. THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. WZ & I are jumping but @LeoRamirezAFP is calm. Which results in this pic.— Elizabeth Law 思敏 (@lizzlaw_) April 16, 2019
