Happy White Day to me.

Yesterday was of course White Day in both Japan and Korea, 30 days after Valentine’s Day. I’ve talked about White Day in the past, but traditionally it was a time where partners do something nice for each other (although I noticed it was more or less for the men to make up for screwing up [...]

China: Qingdao. Jim olu Market, Zhongshan Park and Zhanshan Temple.

One of the things we really wanted to do while in Qingdao was to go to some of the markets, especially the older Chinese ones. On the top of the list was Jim olu Market, a collection of markets selling cheap good, knock off products, and just about anything else someone would need in a [...]

China: Qingdao. Number 6 Bathing Beach.

Last Tuesday night, after I had finished work at 7:45, I came home via the bus (saving myself 15 minutes of walking) and picked up Em for our trip outside of Beijing. We had planned the trip about a month or so ago, not wanting to spend the week I had off for National Day [...]
