Not business as usual yet

Well, the Chinese new year(Jan 23), has come and gone. But I’m still waiting for most of the businesses to open again. This usually takes a week to a fortnight. And sometimes then they’re not in any hurry. However, living here lo these few years I’ve come to expect it. The Chinese have a lot to teach Westerners about relaxing, de-stressing. And getting together with friends and family. While the world turns frantically for the next Wii, iPod or other gimmick and gadget, folks here are catching up on eating and visiting neighbors. Not bad, not bad at all. Oh, yeah, the express post, that’ll take about two weeks at least 🙂
