Foot Massage in China

Sometimes comfortable - sometimes painful but always a lot of fun!

Limes Anyone?


Spotted today in the mall...I think this is taking the couples dressing alike thing a little too far!

Happy International Women's Day!

Today was Women's Day in China and some other parts of the world.  What better way to celebrate than to eat some Hunan food at Zhuhai's biggest and best Hunan restaurant! This is the main floor of Huo Gong Dian the largest and the best Hunan restaurant in Zhuhai.  This is HALF of the main dining room and there are 6 more floors in addition to this one.


Roasted and stewed pork shank in Hunan mushroom and pepper broth.


Fish head in peppers.


Silk potatoes...finely sliced potatoes...kinda like hash browns but boiled not fried.


And no Hunan restaurant would be complete without the obligatory statue of the most famous person from Hunan province - Chairman Mao.  Who once said "Women hold up one half the sky."  


Happy Women's Day from China!

Getting Away from All the NOISE

Sometimes you just have to get away from the hustle, bustle and NOISE of China.  What better place to do that but in the mountains!  National park outside of Jiangmen City in Guandong Province.

China Hi Tech Toilet

Saw this in the home improvement store here in Zhuhai this past week. There is also a row of buttons on the other side that controls the heated seat. I understand all the buttons on the control panel except the "light" button. Who needs a light?

I promise next time to post something a little more substantive....but I couldn't help it, I had to post this one.
