    Thanks for your answer.
    It's a strange co-incidence then. The Shi ZhengZhong group were using the name Peng Lai in Taiwan and USA but they mainly practice Northern Mantis, nothing to do with Southern Crane I suppose.

    According to Shi Zheng Zhong's bio, he started in White Crane as a young child.

    Restaurant is a bit far for me ,I live in Anping, but I will give it a try soon . About "Penglai" being old name for Taiwan , that is not true , there are no evidence to support that claim , although Taiwan is pretty nice place to live
