2018-04-25-Wed chinese sns told me i’m top 2% writer now
chinese sns announcement told me i'm top 2% writer now. :))) yeahhhhhhhh. hehe. i was announced as top 4% before, but again proceeding, i guess.
anyways, taiwan. you just get up very early and you are already here. so close from my town. isn't it amazing that all the seven elevens are "eat-in" ? and you can just use their wifi to internet eating sandwiches and oden that you bought with a beer? hehe.
you know when you arrive taiwan or hk, you get the relaxing feeling than you arrive other cities inside china? hehe. cleaner cities, shop service and taxi drivers all smiling and polite almost like japan, you really feel it immediately and nice. hehe. many nostalgic cafes in taiwan with taiwanese dessert and in hot weather like this, coffee with ice cream on top with wifi hanging out with folks after agenda is nice.
2018-04-24-Tue shirts to dry cleaning, 明日は別件で台湾へ
got back in afternoon, brought shirts to dry cleaning, 明日は別件で台湾へ. post surgery and still on medication but pretty busy. many projects. when it rains it pours（means something similar to モテ期 ), it is true!!! hehe. ;) glad finally i went to the seafood restaurant to eat the lobster set with folks. 5 dishes including fish, ducks, soup, and vegetables. lobster was real nice. so after bringing stuffs from this trip to dry cleaners, went to lobster supper, then to foreign supermarket and bought blue berry yoghurt ice cream and ate on the way home. we were lucky around the time we arrived home, it started to rain hard. now watching american sitcoms with nice coffee and chocolate.
2018-04-23-Mon so many foreigners in guangzhou
so many foreigners in guangzhou. bit surprised, we thought shanghai and beijing are cooler and have more cool people and places, but really found out how guangzhou is much better in that sense. many folks saying "wouldn't mind living here for couple of years." although, for me and some folks, our island city and hk are the still the coolest in ranking. hehe. :)
was nice, folk from europe that has own business met us up here and he brought very good camera, taking our pictures riding tuk-tuk in cool old back streets. we all wonder why we don't have tuk-tuk in our town. also, this person will head back to europe next wk, so we found some nice shop to buy cool chinese souvenirs for family and friends like small wooden buddhism bracelets and long necklace but more in cool design and good sense that foreigners like.
after nice expensive vegetarian restaurant, met many foreigners group in subway and by coincidence, one of our folks started talking with them and became friendly and all ended up the guangzhou expats taking us to cool expats bar streets together and hang out.

2018-04-13-Fri seafood lunch at outside terrace
seafood lunch at outside terrace. it's sunny summer in this island. today, although my post surgery condition is said to be still bleeding for about one more wk, folk took me for some slow walking for healthy exercise, and we sat on this seafood restaurant outside seat near my house that i won luxurious set for two or three people in chinese sns. had nice lunch that included clam and tofu fish, ginger duck in claypot, seaweed and shrimp pancakes, abalone steamed, and morning glory stirred fried. many many abalone. all was tasty. i'm not allowed to have constipation for my pain, so i took that medication, antibiotics, and the medication to stop my blood as usual. the medication for stopping bleeding however has a side effect that might cause a blood in vein to get clogged so must not continue more than couple of wks.
after lunch, we went to buy some milk, pasta, yoghurt, ice cream at the foreign market. met many foreigners there. came home a while ago. now preparing afternoon coffee to make a latte. folks here hanging out, sometimes taking care of business on pc and mobile. we finished watching fargo 3, so back to watching rest of mozart in the jungle, and this season, they go to japan and so many familiar japanese good actors are in there. not only american japanese actors like masi oka, but mieko harada, ryo kase, and etc... these american shows like the girls and mozart in the jungle, the producers really have good sense of using cool actors in japan, selecting cool very japanese locations, i must say.
yesterday, i ordered bunch of fererro rocher chocolates both normal packaging and gift packagings. normal ones for ourselves and gift packaging ones for surgeon folks that took good vip care of me in hospital for this time surgery, not only that but for long time friendship and always being good business associates. want to go give them in next meetings. taobao is so cool. i love taobao. i got so much discount on the chocolates, so convenient, i checked the delivery status and they are already in the distribution center in my town. so excited to receive them soon.
2018-04-12-Thu already discussing next shanghai trip

doctor told me it will still hurt for about a wk or so, so i just take medication and stay in bed. pain is better but everytime i go to bathroom it really is like hell still. people really should not take this illness easy.
finally after my surgery, wrote 5 articles in chinese sns. fans liking my stuff. real nice. pretty tired though.
hot and humid island life these days. want to order taiwanese or hongkong style dessert delivery today.
術後の自己治癒力、睡眠の力って本当にすごいなぁ。still on medication, but i feel pain healing little by little. eventually, last night had some chinese style steamed fish, shrimp and some razor clams, lots of petit tomatos, all good for health. today, folk came and made fruit salad with yoghurt and blueberry jelly with creme cheese toast. took me out for a little walk for healthy excercise. although pain, i walk slowly on the road.
back in bed reading these things real interesting. the united states trade war against china, i pretty much get the feeling they stepped into something serious, china is much stronger and have good reasons these days. what will happen? it is not going to be easy war. :
