The dead white light,


The scorching sunshine sticking to the dead wall like shit,


The bread and milk,


The cup of coffee or tea,


The screen with whatever on,


The colorless water,


The movie, the memories,


The book, the unfinished book,


The secrets, the pillow talks,


The dreams, the…

Fujian Trip Logistics

A couple of people have asked about this, so I’ll tell you what I know and what we did.

An expanded set of photos are here.

High Speed Trains

A fast way to travel and while you don’t have to be at the station as early as for a flight, you still need to allow time for the nuisance ID checks – passport against ticket – and the x-raying of baggage . The…

Stop and Eat the Roses

Yes, we all know by now that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. But would it taste as sweet? It may come as a surprise to learn that the rose is so much more than just a symbol of passionate love oft poeticized – it is actually edible!

It is not uncommon to encounter flowers in Eastern cuisine. The Chinese use lilies, lotus, and chrysanthemum regularly in their foods; Indians and Middle Easterners prefer roses. In India, every ice cream shop will carry…

Here's some photos of from a quick roam around Pingzhou, a sub district of Xixiang Baoan. The area is kind of interesting, it feels like it has a soul of sorts, it's a welcome escape from walking around the sterile shopping malls thats for sure.

Getting there is easy, just hop out at Pingzhou station and take exit C.…

Kids in Fujian - August 2014

My elder daughter and son visited China for a couple of weeks and we took a trip to Fujian.

We left SZ on Monday afternoon and took the fast train to Xiamen, getting into our hotel on Zhong Shan Pedestrian Street at about 8pm.  It seems that Xiamen eats early because we had trouble finding a good restaurant open at that time. We spent Tuesday wandering around that area and took a speedboat to Gulangyu Island.  It was hot, sticky and very crowded. Not as interesting as I'd…

Dubaiker Realtors, scamming foreigners

I initially came to Shenzhen for a day to view some apartments, after viewing I put a deposit down on a property I liked with the agreement i would move in, in 2 days time and we also agreed we would start the lease from that date.

On arriving and bringing all my belonging I sat down to sign the lease with the realtor and home owner who couldn’t speak English. At this point the realtor told me the rent had increased due to me being a foreigner and the rent was…

Finding the Yin to My Yang

Since moving to China (again), I figured I may as well take advantage of being in the Far East to indulge in activities – and food – which are not easily available in Western civilization. Last time I was here, I tried Kung Fu for a few months. While the warm-up exercises were a great workout, my feeble little mind failed to memorize the order of the movements and my studies were doomed from the onset.

This time, I’ve decided to commit myself to …
