Catch-up blogs

I think the Chinese censors are slipping, because I got onto Blogger tonight! So I caught up with my posts. This means that you need to read back all of the way until July 9th so you don’t miss anything. Sorry, but it makes more sense to put everything on the day that it happened.

The past couple of weekends we have been going to the Fabric Market and having clothes made. It’s great! Having clothes custom made to your body makes everything look good on you! and it’s so cheap. I’ll post some photos sometime. Any visitors, please note that we should go there right away to order some things. Suits run about $70 USD. Crazy, huh?

My friends from the NOC sent me a care package! It was amazing. It was a bunch of things I said I missed. For instance, I miss the smell of warm clothes when they come out of the dryer, so they sent me Bounce dryer sheets! Febreez, hand sanitizer (today I actually found a bottle here. It was $4 for the tiny purse size), a big packaged of Reece’s peanut butter cups, a scrapbook (made in China so it’s been around the world), a flag decoration, etc. And the invitation to Jessie and Seth’s wedding – sorry we can’t make it guys!!

Today we went to the Portman grocery store, which is where you can find international foods. The prices are outrageous!! For a jar of Fat-Free Mayo, it is $10. No kidding. They even have frozen foods like Weight Watchers meals or pizza – for about twice the price. Campbell’s soup is $2.50 per can. We paid $4 for a small bottle of vanilla so Jon could make a cheesecake. We’ll use it for other baking so it’s OK though. We looked for Graham Crackers for the crust, but none were to be found.
