I got tired of accessing this site through Tor so I bought a new domain and moved the site to http://oneeyedpandasjournal.com. Please switch your readers to http://oneeyedpandasjournal.com/feed/. But it’s still the same great content at a new location!
Monday marked the end of the project which has been taking up much of my work and personal life for the last couple of weeks. I haven’t been blogging since them I’ve been spending a lot of time just reading other people’s blogs. One that I am really enjoying is Peijin Chen’s A Shameful Waste of Madhouse Time.
This guy is a complete polymath. He reads a ton of things in both English and Chinese and give his opinions on this multiple times each day. Every post is short and to the point and definitely not a waste of time to read.
Check it out!
I’m in the middle of a major project at work — no that’s not right. I am struggling with a major project at work at the moment. and that is seeping up all of my time and desire to blog so posting will be a bit light here for another week. I hope to get on top of things this week so that I can write something soon — as this space is a real outlet for me. But I don’t want to turn this blog into a spot to rant about the failures of PowerPoint (or my failure to master the program), so I’ll just stay semi-silent until I finish the project.
On a more positive note though, Winnie and I did watch the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremonies on Friday with some friends at a Greek restaurant in Gubei. It was simply awesome especially the fireworks. I do hope that this put a lot doubts to rest about whether China was ready to host the Olympics or not. I’ve also been watching the Olympics on and off all weekend. As of right now, China has six gold and two silver medals.
It was sad to hear about the murder of an American at the Drum Tower yesterday. My thoughts are with the family, but I am wishing deep in my heart of hearts that there is no backlash against China for it. It sounds like it was just a deranged man and the family was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Look for posts again soon.
