Ray Hecht asked me a couple of months ago whether I am interested in an interview. Of course I was! Two months ago? This is a bit embarrassing but I took my sweet time getting my part done but now it is finished in all its glory. In case you don’t know Ray Hecht, he is hailing from the US and lives already for many years in China. Besides his blog he is also an author with his latest title being published “South China Morning Blues” (available on December the 7th, at least according to Amazon!). What else to tell about Ray? Just too much but in case you are into comics or want to learn more about the history of comics such as from DC and Marvel you will find tons of material on his blog! (Really tons, got even me into buying some over the past half-year).
So here is a little snippet of the interview:
You get personal in your blog at times. Have you ever gotten in trouble with your wife or mother-in-law by sharing too much?
My wife has no troubles about what I write about and truth to be told, my mother-in-law has no clue about this blog. I can’t even imagine what her reaction might be. It could be anything from being pissed at me, forcing her daughter to divorce me, or feeling honored and what not all else. She is a very unpredictable person so anything is possible.
However I have no doubt that she has her own micro blog on Weibo writing about her crazy son-in-law. As I never really write anything about myself my readers actually don’t know what kind of wacko I am myself but I have some blog posts planned to give more insights about that weird guy who writes about his crazy Chinese mother-in-law, but this is still work in progress soon.
Check out the rest of the interview and of course all the other great things on the blog such as my favorites Chinglish and of course the Comics.
Thank you Ray for this this interview with me, even though I wasn’t the fastest to work everything out!

Thanks for being such a fascinating subject, Timo!
Well, I dont know whether I am a fascinating subject but I do my best to be slightly different then the majority 🙂
It really made me laugh thinking of your MIL blogging about her “Crazy Finnish Family” 🙂 I really enjoyed reading your answers, and as for favorite MIL stories, m favorite is also the one with MIL in the zoo:)
Thank you. It was nice to have this interview opportunity. I wonder how MIL’s blog might look like but then again I am too scared to imagine too much!
Timo, don’t feel bad. I have a few interviews in the works for many months now. I blame it on 2015 as it has been a difficult year, but it is ending a happier note.
The zoo story is one of the craziest things I have heard about an adult in a long time. But, I think her greasy fingers story is the one that I will always remember! 🙂
Yes, 2015 is also for me not really a good year…
Hoping for 2016 to bring a refreshing new start 🙂
A good start in revealing more about the author 🙂
Interview are always a good thing, thankfully I got it done this year 🙂
Haha I’m interested to read more about your craziness too! xD Imagining your MIL writing a blog about you is such an amusing image…
I have already some ideas what to write about myself/ how to introduce some things of me 🙂
Lovely wedding pix.
A write-up about you! You are brave.
This write ups always are a great time to reflect on what all happened and remember things you might have forgotten otherwise soon. Brave? I don’t know but could be, I wouldn’t have done this two years ago when I just started with blogging 🙂
I know about procrastination ^^ I’m glad you finished the interview and I will go read it now! Reading about your life is very interesting for some reason ^^
I read your interview on Ray’s blog and left a comment there. Love it. Looking forward to more posts from you in the future. Would love to read more posts about you and your wacko self, as you put it 😉 I’m sure there’ll be a lot more MIL posts – and maybe at one point you might catch her saying something about you and you’ll write about that… 😀
Thank you Mabel. I hope to be able to work on the posts about myself in the beginning of next year. Right now there is just too much other stuff which keeps me away from the blog/ computer
So… You’re a wacko yourself, huh?! Can’t wait to read more about that!
Yeah, i ain’t the standard family dad around, not that I am some psycho but there are some special things ….
Can’t wait to read about them!
