Back from the US

I had an amazingly wonderful time visiting my family and friends. I've now been back in Taiwan less than 24 hours and already I miss my kids so much. Still trying to figure out how I'll get back into my former routine.

I have lots of photos to go through, and will post them as soon as possible.

In the meantime, here's a little video from my favorite city, San Francisco, featuring my son.

Chinese language update

It's not really a full update, because I'm busy getting ready for my trip to the US on Saturday! However, I'm proud to report that I'm still on track with my New Year's Resolution of studying everyday, even if it's just for 10 minutes.

So, I have to share a cool word I just learned. It's 臭美 (chòu měi). It means something like 'smug', 'conceited' or 'showing off your looks.' I'll never forget this word, because the characters literally mean―get this―"stinky beauty."

Isn't that awesome?
