I posted this last year, but since it is March 17th, I thought a reposting was appropriate.
Like most Americans, I grew up not ever knowing who St. Patrick was. I just made sure I always wore green on March 17th so I wouldn't get pinched. Weird. I highly recommend clicking on the links below and learning about this great man of God.

|We've stopped here a couple of times to play games over the years. You pay a little money for a bunch of|
tokens that allow you to play a million games. It's much cheaper to visit arcades here than it is in the States.
|Grace only wanted to play this drum game once. It was givin' her arms a workout that wasn't fun, but |
my mighty pythons didn't have any problemos drumming away.
|Grace scored five points in this basketball game. Shewas hesitant to play because |
she didn't think she would score any baskets, but my girl got game!

|Last Saturday Megan went to Tianjin's new IKEA, and today she went antique |
shopping. That meant Rose, Grace, and I had another daddy's date. We decided
to go to a restaurant Megan does not care for much - a chaincalled Golden Hans.
|The girls and I really like this restaurant. It's a churrascaria (Brazilian steakhouse), but they also function as a |
"German" brewery. Our waiter chuckledwhen I chose not to order any brewskis. I chose to get some Coke,
instant coffee, and warm milk. Rose and Grace approved.
|The waiters wear cool cowboy hats and bring around lots of meat on bigsticks. |
It is a good thing we aren't vegetarians.
|Grace is enjoying some ox tongue. I chose to skip the taste buds, but I did hunker down on some pig heart. |
The girls thought it was too spicy.
|These are fried pumpkin cakes and they are lip-smackin' good. Unfortunately my Chinese readin' skillz are pathetic |
so I'm not sure what the cake says. If I had to guess, it might say, "Put me in your mouth 'cause I b so tasty."

|I was really excited about the chocolate ice cream.|
|I was not happy when all of my ice cream was gone.|

|Before heading back to school for the start of the second semester, I told Rose and Grace that I would|
take them on a daddy date. We decided to walk to a nearby mall and eat at Maky Bakery.
|Of course the girls love the giant cakes. They probably look a lot better than they taste. Cakes here |
have approved tremendously over the years, but they still tend to be less sweet than in America.
I am all about the sugar.
