We got back from holiday to find that we have another three days off, which is lovely. Gives us a chance to catch up with everything and do laundry (it takes ages, we have the world's oldest washing maching - you actually have to stand over it and hand spin it) before the term starts.
On Tuesday night, our first day back, we were in a party mood so Tarik, Benny and their friend Tom came over and we got pizza. We then went out to KTV and much alcohol was consumed, to the extent that even Tarik and I had a go at singing. I did take a video but will not be posting that one anywhere! Despite the pizza we also ordered food in KTV which felt greedy but meant that none of us suffered the next day.
Again, when we got back, we found out that a staff night out had been organised and, given that we live in Tonglu and there is nothing to do, it was dinner and KTV! Very different affair with lots of Chinese songs and not a lot of alcohol but still nice to see everyone outside of work.
that we also went to KTV in Shanghai with Shum (way better selection of music videos by the way) I am now suffering from overload.
Oh, and it makes me very happy to report that Tonglu is now a little warmer. I haven't worn my thermals once since I got back! Woohoo, Spring is Sprung.
