Been awhile

It's been over two weeks since i've updated this page, and there are very good reasons for that. I literally haven't had any time. I now work from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm, and by the time I get back home, meet up with some people to eat dinner, I have maybe an hour to myself before I go to sleep. And since I don't have internet access in my apartment, it's a little difficult to update the page. when I do have time, I don't really like walking down the street and using the internet "cafe"...internet cafe's in China (in chinese it is translated as "net bar") are more like biological hazard zones. Generally they are filled with cigarette smoking computer game addicts who sit there playing RPG computer games for days at a time (the bar near my house has a special discount if you stay for 12 hours straight). They also really enjoy hawking up lugies on the floor and generally being disgusting. Not to mention, the keyboards usually barely work.

Aside from not having internet access, my apartment is pimp as hell. I took a bunch of pictures of it the day I moved in, and will now take you on an exciting visual tour of my temporary domecile.

The first thing you will see as you pass through the door way is the beautiful faux cracked glass divider that separates the entrance from the living room.



The exsquisite (how do you spell this word?) divider latticework masks the rustic yet retro-futuristic living room decor that lies just a few feet beyond...



Notice the large TV, it is since been complemented by an aquamarine colored DVD player bought and paid for yesterday. By far the most remarkable characteristic of this masterpiece of fengshui interior design is the plush comfortable couches furnishings. Also notice the massive air-conditioner...when that bitch is cranked up it feels like a 25mph ice cold breeze is running through the room. Next, I take you to the balcony...



From the balcony there is a quaint view of the luscious urban jungle that is Shanghai. An excellent place to relax after a long day at work, kick back, as the sounds of jackhammers pounding pavement and publics buses flying by lull you to sleep. Next, the dining room...



The dining room is a holy place in most households, and the interior gods who designed my apartment nod to this notion with a dining room table that if not carefully examined may be mistaken for a museum quality work of art. Too bad it is now mainly being used as a piling point for the random junk I take out of my pockets when I return home. Without further ado, I present you the least used room of this apartment, the kitchen



The kitchen is complete with a gas range, and rice cooker...both of which have been used exactly twice...Next, the hallway with full-sized primping mirror...



This hallway-mirror combo is maybe the most important part of the whole apartment ensemble...it is here that I spend at least 5 minutes primping myself before venturing out to the mean streets of shanghai each morning before work. It is also here that I practice my break dancing and ballet moves each night...pirrouetting myself to a twirling sleep. And finally, the master bedroom...



This, my friends, is where the magic happens. This room is very special to me for reasons that should be obvious.

Stay tuned for next time, when I show the two bathrooms...yes, you heard right, two friggin bathrooms. What can a man do with two bathrooms? well you'll have to wait till next entry to find out...
