After moving in, the very flakey internet has not been working, even after they installed a new router. So I’ve been dying to post….dying! Ok, a bit over dramatic. This is the crazy and complicated thing though, any kind of social network is banned here, as in, if I go to C&C or Facebook or twitter or anything like that, it will show up with a blocked or can’t find it page. So, another thing I’ve had to work around. So, I have TONS to catch up on. Emails, posts, family, sewing, pictures and yadda yadda yadda.
Beck is horribly jet lagged, so currently, I’ve been awake since 2 thanks to Beck. Hence me typing up a blog post in hopes that I get the internet today. Yesterday, I found Beck and Danny asleep like this on the couch, it was a rough night for all of us. So glad my husband is freeing me up some sleep.
The food here is not what is to be expected, it is actually NOTHING to be expected. Chinese food is way way way different, not bad, just different. Something I will have to get used to. For example, I walked by one of those food stands and it had cooked chicken feet, yum. In the pictures below we ate some Japanese food, which is also completely different than what I expected, and thanked to Darcy (Danny’s coworker) we got TONs of random looking things to eat that I actually avoided eating. I have noticed though that there are lots of yummy dessert and pastry places around, so delicious. You better believe that we are going to get something from there every day.
And some great awaiting news I’ve been excited to hear is about a 4 story mall full of all kinds of fabric. I almost started to cry when I heard of this awesomeness. First thing next week, I’m headed over there and hopefully scoring exactly what I need.
Which reminds me, I have SO many things planned, literally a huge list I’ve made out over the last month. And it is all doable and simple. So, I hope you like!
Loved these lots.
Didn’t love these so much.
This is Darcy, he was so friendly. Made life 10x easier the first day we were there.
I’m laughing here because a random person is taking a picture of Beck at the same time Danny is. I don’t blame them, he is quite cute. People everywhere stare at him and try to talk to him in Chinese. Literally, like 9 out of 10 people. Also, in this pic, Beck and I are wiped out, as we were taking the long walk back to the apartment, I kept telling myself to keep my eyes open. So tired.
