We came a long way for you dear Snitta.

For some obscure reasons, steak knives are not available at the IKEA near us (you know the one I can drive almost without GPS and 2 kms down the road!) no no we had to drive to the burb, a whole 16 kms away (for reference the Island is 50 kms/31 mi long and 27km/17mi wide!). Ok we also had to go there for a desk 🙂

Reminded us of a total ban on knives sale when we arrived in Beijing. Almost no knife to be found anywhere and also for some weird reason forks were out of stock for a couple of weeks (at the IKEA). Do you know how hard it is to find forks in a country who use chopsticks to eat?!
