2009 New Years Beers N Noodles To You All

Hey Hey and a Big G'Day toya, The Festive Season [/i] Part 2 - New Years 2009 Mate![/i] Ha Ha Ha! Just like when I was writing my Christmas Blog. I am sitting comfortably and warm before my computer and Luo Wei is out like a light. Happily for me, this time she is sleeping soundly on my couch right behind me. What a lucky boy I am! Poor little bugger is so tired, she got here mid afternoon today and has been sleeping ever since. I've written about her work hours before so I won't bother you with that but over the last two months they have also included two or more hours of dance practice every day. She has today, tomorrow and most of Friday off but has to work Friday night, all weekend, all next week, all next weekend and so it will continue until the end of term for her. The end of term! Yes let's talk about the end of term shall we! Mine finished at two thirty this very afternoon and I am now free until the middle of February 2009. I will head to Xian with Luo Wei on Friday and sadly we will part there and I will head to the very south east of China to Guangdong Province where I will have my passport renewed. I was going to fly but the thought of kicking back on the train relaxing for two nights before I begin walking six hours a day like I usually do is just too much. I love Chinese trains. I just have to decide between Hard Sleeper and Soft Sleeper. But on the other hand I dare say that I probably won't have a choice and will be lucky to get either. So it's now 11:00pm on New Years Eve 2008. I have a case of beer cooling in the fridge, a sleeping Chinese Beauty on my couch and one hours left of yet another fun filled year in the life of Living The Dream here in Mysterious China. I could have been out at a bar partying it up like everyone I know both here and back home but instead I chose to stay home and watch my little Peach while she slept some well deserved sleep. We could have gone out for a huge festive dinner but instead when Luo Wei woke half an hour ago I made us both a steaming bowl of instant noodles each. She the stewed beef from the green pack and me the seafood one from the blue pack. To each I added a whisked egg to make it all the more special. What a beautiful evening! Beers N Noodles toya.....shane <u>I'll leave you with the text message my sister sent me a moment ago.</u> Before the sun sets on the year 2008. Before the memories fade. Before the networks get jammed and long before I get pissed enough to get naked and lose my phone. I'm wishing you all and the happiest of happy New Years! To my beautiful family and all my happy friends from all over the world. All the best in 2009, may your Beers N Noodles shine! </b></b>______________________________________________________ The soundtrack to this entry was by Jimmy Page & Robert Plant The album was 'No Quarter' ______________________________________________________
