Wedding presents

29 06 2010

We’re not into registering and aren’t asking for wedding gifts. That being said, I MUST share with you a pretty marvelous wedding present.

Chinese commemorative wedding stamp, complete with cartoon bride and groom.

That’s right. It’s customized. Wu Si Jie and Mei Li Xia will definitely live Happy Ever After.

Kinda makes me wanna open a bar so we can stamp people’s hands.

Sarah and Fiona, the lovely gift-givers.


The end is nigh… and passion fruit.

In keeping with my previous post, I’ll catch you up to date and introduce you to a new favorite fruit.

Today we are going to an engagement/wedding party being thrown for us by our Nanjing friends. The theme is Made in China and prizes will be awarded for the best Chinese costumes. I found a sequin appliqué of a panda talking on a telephone in Hong Kong that will attach beautifully to my new silk cocktail dress. Pictures soon.

We need to recap our trip from last week but I’ll tide you over with my new fruit obsession-
Purple passion fruit. For 1.5 quai (25 cents) the lady lops the top off and hands you a spoon. AMAZING!!!

And, just for fun, look at this little guy after a hard day helping his grandma in Yangshuo.

love, Missy
