Saturday: Didn't do much today, just took it easy. Rented some movies and just relaxed :) Sunday: We had the boy come over again (Erik) and his grandparents brought us a Christmas tree and some Beijing duck...it was a really nice gesture :) Now we have a tree, but it still doesn't feel like Christmas is in 2 days. It's going to be a hard Christmas this year, but next year we'll be back with our family. And I think it will make our time together more special.... read more

Thursday: Nothing too exciting happened today. I had trouble with one of my classes. Very loud, one kid was talking a lot and being stupid...so I stared at him for about a minute and he sure stopped talking after that. It makes my job 100 times more difficult and stressful when I have a kid like that in my class. Went to do some groceries, got some movies (Spiderman 3, Transformers and something called Flashback...it's a German movie (in English)...horror/slasher type...it was half decent). Just relaxed the rest of the evening. Happy Birthday Grandma Abma! Friday: End of the week! yay! I had 4 classes, 3 in the AM and 1 in the PM. I thought I had class at 1:40pm like Ben...but I showed up and the teacher was like "next class". I looked at ... read more

After Ben's class, we went with Mr. Yang into the major part of Xinghua. We got our visas done, money exchanged, some phone cards to call family and for lunch...Ben and I went to KFC and I got a Mexican twister basically ranch sauce with salsa with lettuce and tomato, chicken and a tortilla wrap! I got a side of mashed potatoes and those were pretty good too! Mmmm!!! I had 3 classes in a row...my 2nd class was super sweet. I didn't get to meet them 2 weeks ago because that was the day we didn't go in because of breach of contract. So, they asked me a bunch of questions and they said I'm like a superstar to them and it was really sweet. One girl gave me a card that says "Happy Everyday" ... read more

Saturday: We got invited over for lunch across the street. The family wants us to tutor their 9 yr old son every weekend (Sundays) to improve his English. They cooked a large meal (like most traditional Chinese meals) with some different types of food. Some were good, most were really bad. Especially "river crab"...tastes NOTHING like ocean crab...yuck. I tried most things, and they kept bothering me to try more. I can only push my limits so far without throwing up on the table. They were really nice, but I hate when people force feed me, especially when I've been feeling sick lately. Sunday: The boy (who we named "Erik" for his English name) came over for an hour. We showed him pictures of Canada and food, and pictures of animals. Found out today that I ... read more

Today is a short day since it's their weekend off...so classes end at 11:30. It's complete mayhem outside after because all their parents are picking them up to take them home (it's a boarding school, so most of the students live on campus). A homeless woman begged for money right outside the school and hit me with her cup when we walked past her. The night before leaving KFC a homeless man wouldn't let me shut the taxi door. They're crazy here, most homeless people in Canada aren't as aggressive! This afternoon was one of Ben's students ("Jay") birthday...so he invited us to go to KTV which is a karaoke place. It's pretty neat...private rooms with a big leather couch, karaoke selection thing and tv. We sang a few English songs and the guys sang some ... read more

Monday: I felt super sick when I woke up, I had no voice...so I wasn't able to go into work since I'm pretty useless as an English teacher with no voice. I stayed home and rested. The girls stopped by at lunch and asked me a bunch of questions about Canada again (which was hard to do w/ my voice being gone pretty much) and they offered to bring us shopping on Friday since we get paid. We'll probably treat them to dinner as well. I hope to get a warmer sweater at least and maybe new sunglasses. Tuesday: I felt even worse, but I at least had my voice pretty much back. Still have a hard time talking loudly in class with my sore throat though. Classes went alright, I showed them pictures of Canada ... read more

Saturday: One of Ben's students dropped by at lunch. We played Guitar Hero and he's improving! Really sweet kid. We went out and got KFC for dinner and it was really good...much better than KFC in Canada. Way less greasy...we got chicken sandwich with a piece of chicken on the side and Pepsi. They serve dessert there too, so we each got a strawberry sundae which was also really good. We might get a bucket deal with mashed potatoes & gravy for Christmas dinner since we're going to be alone here. We also did some groceries, got some beer (Bud) and it was pretty cheap about $4.30 for 6 Canadian funds. We went home to drop everything off and then went to get some movies...some didn't work in the PS2 or VCD player so we had ... read more
