Zao shang hao - Good morning!

Wang shang hao - Good evening!

It is over 2:00AM London time now…I have just finish my queued works before my next book tour in 30 hours…

I have been very busy in last week with two book events, two parties, then because US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is visiting China, I was busy with BBC -5 interviews today from 11:00am to 21:00pm.

Therefore I couldn’t get my homework done as I planned: check the travel details, go through 8th events’ schedule (it should be the final one), prepare the clothes for the weather between -5’C to 25’C…two PPTs and one 12 pages presentation…and birthday presents for my husband, by the way, I feel very bad about this…how could I go on my book tour when he is on his birthday alone? I have made a gift by my hands for his birthday, I hope it could help our both hearts.

Anyhow, I have done all of the works by now. I thought I should set a vacation response for others email…just now, one new email jumps in from my friend in US — is that truth you are coming?

Yes, I am, here is the information for her, for you as well, if you would like to meet me at one of the following events…
