No time to write these days. Got my hands full with serious illness in the family. Might write more about it when I get above water level again.

As I wrote in the last post, we’ll have our son baptised in church soon. To be honest, it’s not really what I want, being a huge fan of FSM and not so much religion. In a weak moment a few years ago, I told C that she could decide whether or not our first [...]
27th July 2007 Yilan – Harbin – Beijing What a sucky night. C almost coughed her lungs up. At 2.30am we had to get up and stop C’s cough. I made some hot water that she breathed a bit of steam from, and also she drank a bit to soothe her worn throat. Sitting in [...]
26th July 2007 Yilan C woke me with some insane coughing and moving around in the apartment. She started munching down sunflower seeds and as always never closes the door to the bedroom. I later found out it was 5.30am, which to me is way too early. I was not to decide though, and soon [...]
24th July 2007 Yilan Up at 6.00am. C still has a sore throat and coughed through the night. She also insisted on keeping the window in the bedroom closed, as it would prevent draft. Nothing to keep you ill like a night of freezing. Guess she’s right. I sweated a while lot instead though, but [...]
23rd July 2007 Yilan Another cool nights of sleep. I’m still dizzy, but it doesn’t feel as bad as before. Not quite sure yet though, as I had done nothing but go to the toilet and sit in bed and write up on the last days doings. C went to eat breakfast at her parents [...]
22th July 2007 Gao Leng Woke up 30 minutes before C was ready to get up. I couldn’t sleep anymore, even though I badly needed the rest and didn’t sleep much or well that night. I put my lappie under my arm and headed down the stairs of the computer school and plugged her in. [...]
21th July 2007 Yilan – Gao Leng I slept ok again for the second night in a row. I’m still ill, so a good night’s sleep is essential. C had agreed to visit her sister’s house yet again today, so we had a bath and grabbed a taxi there. I had already turned down sightseeing [...]
14th July 2007 Yilan Hellooooooo hangover. Long time no see? Back to catch up on old memories are we, eh? I was wasted yesterday and it was my own fault. If I hadn’t been so set on getting C’s uncle’s respect at drinking, I could have faced another exciting day instead of spending the whole [...]
10th July 2007 Yilan Wrote a bit about yesterday in the morning. We got up at 7am and C saw an opportunity to go for breakfast at her parent’s home. This interrupted my plans for doing all of the writing about yesterday, but no sweat, I weren’t far behind anymore. We walked to her parents [...]
5th July 2007 Yilan Stardate 0 plus 5 moon days. Captain’s log. We’re orbiting the 3rd moon on the planet Quazar before vectoring to the sector 7 landing zone on Quazar. The Quazarians are a friendly race, but their customs are very different from us earth people’s. The planet itself is a strange sight and [...]
It’s soon now. Only 4 days before we’ll be on a plane towards Beijing. We’re as ready as can be with the obvious exceptions. We need packing the few things that can’t be fixed before the last day anyway. Stuff like toothbrush, shampoo, shaving gear, mobile phones, gadget-chargers and so on. Then there’s the note [...]
