I have been resting a lot of late and in particular since I came back from Thailand. I have been napping in the afternoons. The only problem is the pain from the abdomen area. So, as usual the painkillers to the rescue. I am quite happy not just because I am still alive but I feel good. I think my current therapies are helping.
I have already planned my next trip to China which will take place around the third week of August. This is the first time I will be traveling with my parents as well as my siblings to visit our ancestral village in Dabu, Meizhou. Being of Hakka heritage, I thought it was good for us to visit our ancestral homes and see how people live there. Sample the Hakka food and see the differences, if any to the food that my mother cooked here. I was told the Dabu Hakka spoken there is authentic while the Dabu Hakka that I speak has been mixed with Cantonese. Of course, not forgetting to visit the Hakka Tulou or earth dwellings.
