China touring car championship

We went to zhaoqing. there was the touring car championship. We arrived quiet early,  it was not packed in the beginning. So I thought that it was not going to be very spectacular . But the man of my dreams like movies like ' cars ' and ' turbo ' , so I did an effort to stay.  before the actual race there were stunt teams ,doing tricks with cars. They did quiet impressive things. But my children didn't understand why everybody found it amazing.  For me I parking my car already a huge stunt. i guess I'm not the... [Lire la suite]

Car accident

Mr p got a car accident. Somebody of the hospital called to inform me that he was in the hospital with a head wound.

( filling in all my forms had some use )  so I took a motortaxi to the hospital. the normal taxis only drive to guangzhou , not to xintang where the hospital was. Lucky me, the driver didn't know the... [Lire la suite]

Chinese medecin

I was shopping with my chinese friend. She wanted to buy some herbes / medicins to make a soup. She takes a hand of the herbes and the sales lady starts to cut them ( In a machine under her table ) . she gives my friend her bag cuted herbs.  The handful of herbed , cuttered seems to be a very big bag. this looked already strange. the bag is still quiet light, but it is weighted almost one kilo. (  I think there was some wrong with her balance ) . The hand full of herbs , cost in the end 800 rmb. my friend refuses to pay .... [Lire la suite]

you might think I m very busy now, but I'm ok.  Ayi is still here ;-) . She went to the hospital but the hospital is completly full. So she had to go back home. This week she went back to the hospital, but still no beds free. She is on Waiting list. She said that they only accept emergencies. but as no rooms are available, the emergency cases have to lay at the corridor.   so for the moment we don t kno when Ayi goes to the hospital. they estimated she needs to wait one to two months. Also my chinese teacher is on the... [Lire la suite]

Ayi told me she is leaving. She said that I should slowly start looking for another Ayi. I was surprised ( especially because I only recently gave a salary raise).  But apperently she has a swelling that needs to be removed. As she won t be able to work the next month , she assumes she lost her job.  I told her that she can back after the surgery. She didn't really understand. So I explained that I too can do some ironing, cleaning and if I really really have too , do the dishes. ( but I have to admit , I hate doing the... [Lire la suite]
