You'll never guess what I did today.
Well, if you've been reading my blog regularly, you probably do. I went shopping :-)
I went to Guan Qian, since I didn't go yesterday. You know there were still things that I wanted to get for some other people. Sheesh, I wish that I didn't know anyone that reads this, cause I'd love to tell you what I got! Instead, I have to keep it a secret. Anyways, I got another necklace for me, and a bunch of things for other people. *sigh* I want to tell you! Okay, here's what I got—something for my bosses, some things for people at work, and two of the greatest gifts ever for Chris. I'm happy. Then I came back to my room and took a nap. Oh, wait. I forgot about lunch. I ate at a Chinese curry restaurant. It was good. I had vegetables in curry sauce with rice.
Okay, now back to my hotel room. I took a nap, then went to eat. I had the concierge write down "beef", "vegetables", and "rice" in Chinese, and I took it to a restaurant down the street. I thought I'd get something like stir fry, but I got a divided plate with a section for rice, one for that kind of melon that sort of tastes like zucchini (but more bland), a fried egg (didn't eat that, obvi), beef, and a small section with peanuts. It was not what I expected, but it was good. And I can even pick up individual peanuts with my chopsticks. You'd be proud.
Mom, I got my picture taken today, just like you asked me to! It is in front of the Hall of Learning, and it's with a bunch of Chinese people :-) Love you!
