A Weekend of Thunderstorms... OR NOT!

on 05/27/2016 - 08:49 am

The weather report is driving me nuts. A couple of days ago they were predicting thunderstorms starting mid-week and going on through the weekend. I haven't seen any rain yet, let alone thunderstorms but they're still predicting them all weekend long. In fact, they forecast a 60% chance of thunderstorms on Sunday, 80% chance for Saturday and a 100% chance for today. Those are pretty cocky statements considering they've been wrong the last couple of days. Anyway, here's hoping that they're wrong again. Enjoy the weekend!

The 'I Love You' Weekend

on 05/19/2016 - 03:20 pm

Today is May 20th and the interwebs seem to be all abuzz with love here in China. Not officially any sort of actual holiday or celebration (yet), the hype around this day stems ultimately from human laziness. What better way to say I love you then via text with an abbreviation? The story goes that the numbers 5, 2, and 0, when pronounced together, sound like "I love you" in Chinese. 5 (pronounced "WU") sounds like "Wo" (meaning "I"), 2 (pronounced like the letter "R") for some apparently sounds like "Ai" (meaning "Love), and 0 (pronounced "LING") strangely sounds like "Ni" to some people; which means "you". It's funny how I've been here 9 years and I can't get a taxi driver to understand me ...

Friday the 13th Weekend

on 05/12/2016 - 08:02 am

If you spend any amount of time in China, you'll quickly see that the number four is their unlucky number. The counterpart for many of us is the number 13. Don't ask me why, it just is. Anyway, in case you haven't noticed yet, today is Friday the 13th! According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day, making it the most feared day and date in history. Millions refuse to even leave their house on this day. Across the pond, a study in the British Medical Journal, published in 1993, concluded that there "is a significant level of traffic-related incidences on ...

This weekend and beyond in Shekou

on 03/04/2016 - 12:07 pm

It's always rough getting back to work after the holidays. By now, it seems most people are running at full speed catching up and making up for time off over the last couple of months. The Spring time can definitely be one of the most productive times of the year, but it can also be stressful. Don't forget to take a load off every now and then. Go out to eat, drink some wine, do some shopping, pamper yourself, or just start planning for the next holiday. Whatever your choice, we've got some options for you here.
Before we jump into them though, I'd like to give a quick update of what happened yesterday...
