1. husband called to say he wanted to buy an apartment in china

2. spend ten days driving to places some as far as three hours away to acquire proper document/authentication etc

3. flew to china and signed contract

4. husband actually came earlier than my landing and waited for me at the meeting point – a rare thing – he is always late – he prepared tea for me to test it out too – it was real sweet of him

5. rode a night train to beijing (second time sleeping in a train, i think? )

6. husband wanted me to educate his housekeeper to cook – turned out to be a very difficult task – some people is not meant to learn about new things after school finishes

7. beijing the city always turned out with great pull for me – felt the less humidity of a summer than the south – hope one day i can lay down my roots here and really get to enjoy the city, my childhood city

8. mom lectured me like four hours about at least a dozen of her friends whose daughters bought them a new apartment – after meeting up with college friend, turned out she also increased the unit price from 13000rmb/sq m to 18000rmb/sq m when informing me of her options

9. in retrospect she expressed her desire of wanting to visit america again back then

10. good thing of going back to china during a world cup season: watched many matches with husband in the wee hours, sometimes with me sleeping through most of a match – husband later reported killing mosquitoes for me during my sleep

11. first time leaving from beijing airport, previous time was four years ago, when i came back for a dying grandmother, the last of barely normal days
