Millie getting back to normal.

The other day I mentioned about the strange behaviour of Millie, our pet rabbit and honorary daughter. After a few days, she seems to have calmed down, although she’s still very protective of us at certain times. We’re still not sure why exactly she acted this way, although a few people have suggested it may [...]

Strange behaviour.

I have to apologize for my lack of posts this year. Aside from some increasing work hours, additional projects, and general living measures, I haven’t had a great deal of time to plug away on the computer. In fact, it can go days that I don’t even touch the computer at home, no doubt one [...]

White Chocolate Fondue.

One of the really cool presents we got this Christmas was a chocolate fondue set from my parents. While I’m not much of a chocolate eater, I have to confess that I do enjoy consuming it when it’s done in a fondue. Not only is it fun, but it’s something you can do with a [...]

We have a new dog.

With the temperature plummeting during the nights, we can no longer leave Millie, our rabbit, in her cage in the living room. One side of her cage opens onto our balcony, which basically sucks the heat out of the apartment, and it just wouldn’t be fair to keep her in that. The last two nights [...]

Late night basil thief.

You may have remembered me mentioning that I had grown some basil seedlings the other day. You may also remember how happy I was to soon have some fresh basil to add to some of my dishes and that I was quite happy with the numerous seedlings I had (about 10 or 11 all up). [...]

2 month update from Beijing.

I’ve had a few people write to me, in different forms, asking how things are going for me here in Beijing. In short, things are going very well, and both Em and I have settled down fabulously well in the two months we’ve been here. Yes, it’s hard to believe that I’ve been working for [...]

Fake goods in Beijing.

One of the things China is infamous for is the peddling of fake and phony goods, such as you high quality merchandise from Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada. It’s so bad that when you see someone wearing a Louis Vuitton bag, or a pair of Gucci sunglasses one immediately  dismisses it as a fake without [...]

Millie on the mend.

As mentioned yesterday, our poor pet rabbit Millie was suffering a bad infection, and paid a visit to the vet’s. This morning we’re delighted to see that she had eat some of the carrot we had left in her food bowl overnight. She also looked a little less lethargic, although not exactly 100%. A second, [...]

Millie fighting an infection.

Our poor rabbit daughter, Millie, has been sick over the last few days and when she finally stopped eating yesterday, we knew it was something serious. Em spent the whole day phoning veterinarians around Beijing, but all of them had either little or no experiencing treating rabbits. In fact, surprising as it was, a few [...]

Getting Millie. No wireless.

We finally made it to Beijing, and when I say we I mean Em, myself, and the rabbit. It was nice to be able to have a goodnight sleep without having to worry about any of our travel plans of the rabbit. The flight to Beijing was incident free, although as expected, we were overweight [...]
