Been sick and partially bedridden for the past three days. The only pleasure of being sick was to legitimately receive a day off. However, considering my state of unemployment, I just wallow in a bout of self-pity wondering why my water bottle is always empty and looking for yet another tissue. No, not a pretty sight. So sore it's difficult to move. Who gets the flu in summer! Been extremely . . .

That's one thing that I love about Shanghai - the multitude of events on every week. There's anything from drinking beer and seeing who's the hottest Hooter's girl in Shanghai, to 'blue' moon parties with buckets of booze, jello shots and body paint, to watching a film screening of Darjeeling Limited, to streetboarding World Cups, to visiting an exhibition filled with Olympics posters, to hearty . . .

On the topic of Valentine's day, these entertained me. I can imagine these pick-up lines being used by the Sheldons of the world, who upon delivering them, smile to themselves (creepily) and reminisce on how clever they are. If you believe they could aid you in your quest to find the perfect girl, you can order them on Nerd Dirty's Etsy. Perhaps they could print it on a t-shirt for you. Good . . .
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!! Yes, China seems to have two for some reason. "Qixi Festival aka the Night of Sevens aka Chinese Valentine’s Day is Thursday, August 23rd. While the festival used to be associated with getting married, these days, it’s more like a second Valentines Day. According to legend, if it rains during this holiday, it means that this couple that were separated by a Goddess are . . .
I'm one of those people that think that the elderly are extremely cute. Especially elderly couples lovingly taking strolls in parks. Definitely an 'aww' moment, considering how long they've actually been together. However, despite being cute as a button, perhaps they should not take up painting as a hobby. Some of them at least. One in particular... A piece of art by a 19th century painter Elías . . .
I love stumbling across awesome pieces of street art. via haha.nu . . .
I have a confession. This post has actually already been posted previously (on the 14th of August to be exact). Shock horror. But it's my first proper China post so please pretend I never told you and just continue reading, pretending that it's fresh new material. Much appreciated. Here it goes. The enormity of the move to China hadn't really hit me. I'd already moved to Sydney and had my crazy . . .
Okay, so I decided to finally move along and get a new blog. A blog layout transformation was considered but after much thinking, decided that was time for something brand new. I mean, my pink phase is over and my header picture no longer relates - do not even remember the last time I consumed a lollipop. I no longer eat cookies by the packet (usually) and my yellow car is long gone. My favourite . . .
