Going thru the family web page on our kids’ school and realize that Chloe loves school so much last semester she even went when there was no school 🙂

Well I guess eating in the back streets of Beijing and bargain mojitos will be next time…

Temple Restaurant of Beijing it was. He still knows how to treat me well 🙂

Coal.

You don’t see those around town as much as you used to. In fact I actually had a hard time photographing one last year (I did see a few but was never in a position to photograph them).

The Beijing Municipality is stopping the supply of coal in the city and will ban the use by 2020

On our way to celebrate our Sweet 16 Anniversary 😉

If I’m really nice hubby said I might get lucky… and get 2 Mojitos (they are a steal at 15rmb – $/€2!)

Friday is no ayi day.

Friday is messy day or as I like to call it “well lived interior”

I actually like the not so well arranged pillows, it reminds me that we sat there the night before.

The mix pile of DVDs we might have watched.

The tourist guides we looked at before deciding where to go on our next vacation.

The cup left on the corner of the coffee table by daughter because the kitchen sink is way too far after we told her for the tenth time that she’ll miss her bus if she doesn’t hurry up.

The teddy bear who landed miraculously on that same coffee table not knocking down the previously mentioned cup, tossed by my son who thinks Barry Beat can double up as a last minute soccer ball.

It even has the magazine I was reading, still open on that same page so I can keep reading while sipping my coffee!

I like it but only one day a week 😉

If it wasn’t for the exams you need to sit I would totally go back to (this at least) High School. Not sure my daughter would like it though 😉

China fashion

Tumblr notified me that “A Total TaiTai Tale in Beijing & Beyond turned 1 today!”… I think it’s a little bit over a year now but can’t I really blame a robot to forget my Tumblr anniversary 🙂

I’m just short of 20 posts and I would have had an average of 2 posts a day!! Not bad
