Oh, the things we do...

Mike is currently in Datong City in the northernmost part of China's Shanxi province, bordered by Inner Mongolia in the north and Hebei province (where Beijing is) at the east.

How far is that from here?

Well, we Filipinos do not express 'far' in terms of distance but by hours. Last Wednesday Mike travelled 2 hours by air to Hong Kong, then took a 45-minute ferry ride to Humen port in Guangzhou in Guangdong province to meet with some suppliers. From there, he flew for almost 4 hours yesterday to Datong.
Clocked 6 hours air travel, 45 minutes by sea, a few hours on land.
He's there to inspect some items and visit factories for our business, while I'm left here with the house to keep, kids to watch, a baby to care for and a business to run. Good thing I'm no longer in grad school, or my sanity would be hanging by a thread. (It's currently hanging by a ribbon. Haha.)

Oh, the things we do for a living.

Why AnneThology?

Anthology means a collection of poems, short stories, plays, songs, or excerpts. My name is Anne, and this blog contains a collection of my thoughts, musings and writings (poems, short stories), some songs I like, plus a sprinkling of excerpts I find worth sharing --hence, AnneThology.

Did you know?

Anthology derives from the Greek word ἀνθολογία (anthologia; literally “flower-gathering”) for garland — or bouquet of flowers — which was the title of the earliest surviving anthology, assembled by Meleager of Gadara.

Look, what I have -- these are all for you.
