"Nǐhǎo ma?"

"Nǐhǎo ma?" or in English it means “How are you?”

Yes, I’m home, arrived save and sound around 9.00pm last night. It was a good break for us both. Mission to spend some “us” time together was somewhat accomplished. Unlike my previous trips where RT was the main mission, this Shanghai and Hangzhou vacation did not see me going in out shops buying stuffs. It must have been the cool fall weather that put us in the right mood to walk round unhurriedly, covering the unbeaten tracks of the cities.

And that was how the five days was spent - walking around, stopping to feed fish at the lakes, visits to museums and sitting around allowing time to slip by, as we watched throngs of people walk pass us.

Will share more pictures in the upcoming postings. As for now, it’s back to business as usual – where deadlines and task lists are attributes in the game plan.

Madam Tai Tai,

It has been a while since the last hols we went together. We have been pretty occupied with work and other personal matters. It was a good break for us both :)

Madam busymon101,

Frankly speaking, I was surprised at my ability to tahan all the shopping temptations. Hubby said I have such great determination when I put my mind to it. Unfortunately with shopping it doesn't happen often. This trip will surely go down into my "bad" shopping books :D
