I’m not sure if future mother-in-laws go to a special day-camp for training on how to impress their future son-in-laws, but I wouldn’t be surprised.
Maggie mom just arrived from Dalian on a 23+ hour train ride. Rather than bring things she may need to make her stay more comfortable, she instead brought me chocolate and Maggie breakfast porridge. You can tell whom she loves more. 😉
Her mom will be visiting for the holiday, and as I can’t say much to her in Chinese and she can say absolutely nothing to me in English, it should make for an interesting few days.
Currently both her and her daughter are taking mid-day naps. Mom because of a long and mostly sleepless train journey, and Maggie from the pressures of having her mom here all week (I assume… because really, she’s not the most go-go-go person I know).
I’ve recently set up Lost Laowai’s blog, and as such I will be splitting my time/posts between these two blogs. The focuses of the two blogs are slightly different, but as they’re both about China and observations thereof, there may be a bit of overlap. The cool part about the Lost Laowai blog is that it’s not just me. I’ve designed it to be a collaborative effort among a few friends/fellow bloggers.
It’s JUST started, so there’s not a lot in the way of posts yet and likely still much to tweak, but check it out and give us some feedback in the comments.
