It’s 1.1.2011 here in Shanghai! I know that most of you are still in 2010, so happy early new year! see you in 2011! 😀

My life in shanghai continued to be extremely relaxed. Every morning I wake up with no plans but a full day to do whatever I feel like. It could be just stay at home, watch TV, talk with my mom and snack all day long; it could be a dine out with my mom or friends; it could be a movie with tears and laugh; it could also be a full day of shopping. 😀 Boring? it might sound like, but it is not for me because I know this kind of 100% relaxed vacation will reach to an end soon.

Few words of recap for 2010 and expectations about 2011.

Important events in 2010:

Expected events in 2011
