Wot. No visitors?

Dear Bloggers,

wot

Our visitors left today and it seems very quiet around here. After I finished my homework we went for a walk this afternoon, & didn’t have to run to keep up with G’pa’s long legs!

Here are this weeks key features:

-It poured with rain on Mon & Tues as a typhoon came over & we had record rainfall – more than 15cm the highest in 24 hours since 1961!

– A present from Dong Tai Lu (“Russian turtle seals”)

Image

-Fish & chips at Sailors – I think G’Pa enjoyed sitting on a box for his dinner with a Boddington’s beer!

Image

-On Saturday we visited 2 houses – Soong Ching Ling’s former residence in Shanghai & Sun Yat-Sen’s former residence museum

Image

-Picnic in Fuxing Park

-Boat trip on Huang Pu River

Image

we went from the Bund (above) all the way to the Yangtze River (funny to see the following on Google maps)

Image

-The Commune Social for dinner to celebrate (early) G’Pa’s birthday. I helped the dessert queen (Kim) to make G’Pa’s Birthday cake (5 layers, 1 for each of us) & Micheline’s dessert!

A few G’Pa quotes:

  • “wagons roll”
  • “come on team”
  • “you gotta have a pudding”
  • “I bet you would eat that if I gave you a hundred pounds”

Funnies:

-We could hear Roy Orbison playing in the car & the most surprised person was G’pa, when it was his iPhone playing the music

-Stopping the lift to go back to look for the picnic bag that G’pa had over his shoulder all the time

-G’pa trying to get the bill for a hotel & Mum said “Make us!” (give you the bill) with *tiny punches*

And out & about we also saw:

Chinglish? (no herds of rhinos in sight)

Is this house really held up by one pole?

I hope that all you bloggers had a good week too.

  1. Just read three in a row, seems you’ve been very busy as always. Great to see some pictures with your mum in (she’s much prettier than your dad!!).

    It must seem very quiet now that your visitors have gone home – you seem to have had an action packed two weeks while G’pa was staying with you. Lots of excitement and fun – so now it’s back to normal with a bump and back to school.

    Another interesting blog Thomas. There is a definite food focus each week and I wonder when Commune Social are going to employ you on a permanent basis.
    All well at this end with secrets to be revealed soon.
