This is a wonderful time , to look back .
This is a time , most of us ... that married a chinese Lady are looking forward to . To finally bring her Home , where she belongs ... to be with her LaoGong . Wherever that might be . This is where Qing and Myself are at this very moment . Waiting one last time to be together for good . This time it will only be for a few more weeks and you can bet the BEE is happy as can be . Of course the same goes for his FLOWER . Knowing my Sweetheart almost two year's and anybody that thinks waiting is easy , have not done it on our scale . I think this is by far the hardest thing we both have done in our Life . Does that change the Relationship ? You can bet it does , this is a foundation to build a marriage on and keep it strong .
This keeps me thinking of course ?
What my LaoPo will and will not like , ones she arrives in the States ? this is now on my Mind , full time . As I want her to be as comfortable as I can make her under the circumstances . I know my Sweetheart " thinks " she know how it's going to be . All nice and beautiful in America , freedom to go and do as one pleases . But that is far from the thruth , it maybe was like that a long time ago . Things have changed and sadly to say , not alway's for the better .
So , what worries me the most ... for my LaoPo ?
I guess , most would say the Culture change ... or the Language difference ... the People ( not as friendly ) ?
I truely think it's none of those , that Qing will have trouble with . The one and only thing on my Mind is , the difference in the Food we eat in the west . One might not think of this as that important , but that is exactly what has me worried . I know , for me it was easy to adjust to chinese Food . Because , I love to try everything ... well that looks good ... anyway . I had no problem to adjust there . Knowing Qing and her eating habit's somewhat , from my Visit's to China . I can conclude honestly ... she will not be too happy with what we are used to eating . I of course wish that I'm wrong , deep inside me say's no you're not .
Can I not say , us westerner's eat at least 50% of our meals from Fast Food places ... either for Breakfast , Lunch or Dinner . Why else , would those places be alway's packed with People ? My Sweetheart , does NOT eat at any of those places , does not eat Potatoe's or Cheese . Go figure ... how much we consume of these two item's alone ? I don't mind the change to chinese Food after she get's here , but will she ???
This say'd , there is one more thing ... that also needs attention . Driving a Car , which is an obsolute must here in the Los Angeles area . The public trans-portation is just about as good as walking ... aweful to say the least . But , I have two Car's ... so I'm getting my little Truck ( which is easy to drive ) ready for my LaoPo . All she needs is lesson's , easy ... right ?
I dont think so , as our Laws and driving style is like day and night . But my LaoPo is smart and will learn fast , I'm sure of that .
So as far as I'm concerned , it's the Food to worry about .
