The last thing that made you laugh?

At the moment probably Tokyo just because it is so interesting for me and my wife. already for several years. We wanted to visit this summer but this failed due to some complications with the visa process.
What’s your perfect breakfast?
The perfect breakfast for is no breakfast at all. Sure it is nice to eat in the morning, especially in Hotels but I just don’t like anymore eating in the mornings ever since I quited my sports. This is probably due to the fact that I might simply overeat and won’t be able to eat lunch later 🙂

Flogging Molly in Hamburg 2004
This is a touch one, but right now I go for “The Eye of the World” by Robert Jordan

Thanks for the nomination! Unfortunately, I am ineligible because I have more than 200 followers for some strange reason.
Let’s hope your mother in law is not reading this post. 🙂
I bet she has her own blog talking about me 🙂
Hi CrazyChineseFamily, It’s amazing how you found all these Chinese/Taiwan related blogs. I just about ‘follow’ each and every link you have on this page now. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
Thanks, I always try to find some nice new blogs related to Asia or china. However some of the blogs have been inactive for some time so I hope to reactivate them with a nomination
Congrats, Crazy! Not surprised since you have great content here 🙂
Thanks, I never knew about this kind of award befor and now I saw your collection of different awards :p
Heh. I’m not one for awards. Yes, it’s nice getting given awards – but I feel funny accepting awards. I hope more awards come your way soon, Crazy 🙂
Congratulations! I hope I’ll get nominated next year. Or gain more than 200 followers. Whichever one comes first. =)
Just realized that wanted to nominate you but in my haste (just hours before we started packing up) I ended up with only wordpress blogs
No worries! If someone bows out and you need a replacement, let me know. Otherwise I hope I’ll be nominated next year. Or get more followers. I understand the hell of packing too. Doing some right now myself but not for moving – I am in charge of packing all 4 of us for our Guangzhou trip. Stay tuned. There will be blogging about this. My husband, incidentally, is napping. NAPPING. Sigh. Meanwhile, I’m doing laundry, I’ve put the baby down for a nap and I’m planning outfits for all of us.
Oh my goodness I haven’t stopped laughing about the who to have dinner with question. As a Mother in law myself I hope I don’t conjure up that kind of feeling.
I have to be always careful with my mother-in-law at the eating table as she just piles up my plate with food non-stop. Because of that I don’t even want to imagine how a dinner alone with her might be when her whole focus is on putting more food on my plate as it is alreadz bad enough when she is busy talking with others etc…
Sounds like you need a dog under the table to feed the extra to. Yikes that has to be challenging.
