I apologize for my hiatus. Here’s a video I did recently about a new form of a selfie — a mini figurine you can get made of yourself called a shapie.
I wrote a story about purses that charge your smartphones, and made and starred in a video to go along with it. Check it out (it also features my Beijing hutong home!)
Last week, my softball team, the Sweet Jizhes (jizhe=journalist) won our league’s championship after winning four games back-to-back (although the final game got called about halfway through due to some intense rainstorms).
I like to think I’m keeping up my streak of being on winning media teams wherever I go (our WSJ team was the league champ when I played on it in New York too).
I recently had a few days off, so I decided to go on a little Seoul-searching expedition to South Korea, one of the Asian countries that was still my to-do list.
Let’s be real. My primary motivation for going to Nanjing (for anywhere in China!) is the food. And on that count, the city didn’t disappoint. Dumplings, dumplings and more dumplings—I even had e what quite possibly may have been the best dumplings I’ve ever had in my life, and I don’t award that title lightly.
B&I decided to go on a weekend jaunt to Nanjing (south capital, whereas Beijing=north capital). This is the city where he first studied abroad in China waaay back in 2008, and therefore one of the first Chinese cities I ever visited (before I even lived here, and before this blog was even begun!).
