I've been in China about 3 months now and I've noticed a few things that might seem strange to English folk, most are understandable like in our part of southern China there are no chimneys on houses and no fireplaces in rooms just an air conditioning unit hidden away somewhere, and for most of the year they are as necessary as our fireplaces were in winter before central heating.
However there are other things not so easily explained away like when I buy bread there are no…Continue 继续

Two months ago I decided, like countless expats before me, that it was time to leave China. Well, after spending two months home in America, I’ve decided to come right back.
Now I know what you’re thinking:
I don’t have time to explain all that right now,
Since arriving back here, I’ve had many people ask me, “I thought you were sick of China. What convinced you to come back?”
First of all, I never said I was sick of China.
Second of all, I’m even…Continue 继续

Shopping done our Christmas started On Christmas Eve with a meal of English style sirloin and chips with Chinese food thrown in for good luck there were about 10 of us so after food we played some sort of poker I've never played poker before and I found it to be slow and boring I think Snap is far better suited to my high level of intellectual understanding of all forms of gambling, later Noah and his lovely wife Tracy O turned up and kept us entertained until…Continue 继续

Well what a lovely place China is, well it is for me anyway I have so much fun just trying to get simple things, I went to the DIY man (woman) the other day the one just past Woggies, all I wanted was some cable ties, my internet didn’t work there so Google was no help at all, I drew pictures and tried very hard to do mimes of what they did, but I think they thought I was miming choking someone, I looked around the shop as best as I could, 30 minutes later I walked away empty handed, I’m…Continue 继续

Now what did I go and do that for .... Let me explain .... I’m what I suppose people would call a portly gentleman when they are being kind and a fat old git when they are not, I also have white hair, white as snow and while we are talking about snow this is the time of the year when portly and white hair get people thinking about Santa, now Santa used to be a friend of mine, bring me presents and things but he hasn’t dropped by for quite a few years now,…

Just FYI, if you noticed your VPN is not working atm, you could try this:
If you are currently unable to connect your VPN account, chances are you are using UDP Protocol which is now blocked in China.
To fix your VPN account, you will need to change some settings inside the customer area maybe.
You can try to change your protocol to TCP and…Continue 继续
I think I’ve at last worked out what China is all about for the retired gentleman, (me) it took me a while but I’ve cracked it.... China is all about finding things to do in-between meals, so the longer you make a meal last the less time you have to worry about what to do and where to go. Several years ago when I was a working man, May said to me come to China dad and I can take you to a different restaurant every day for the rest of your life, and now I’m here I believe her, there is an…Continue 继续
Here's a letter I just wrote to my old English teacher back in the States, about me and John Galli competing in the half-marathon race in Macau over the weekend. Thought you might enjoy a laugh or two over our suffering.
"I may have mentioned to you before that I was planning to run in a half-marathon with one of my friends in Macau. Well, the race was last Sunday and man was it something.
I had been having some physical issues leading up to the race, including but not limited…Continue 继续
