I’m a stenographer.

*not actually me

I’m from here.

*not actually here

For the past six years, with my husband and kids, I’ve lived here.

*as above

In my spare time I like to flit around between too many interests, achieving little in any of them.  My main one, currently, is my ill-advised but dogged pursuit of Cantonese fluency.  I also like swimming, hip hop, European royal families, jewels, history, writing, and reading lots of stuff, especially hilarious obscure Aussie suburban narratives.

    Hi Jade,
    So glad I found this blog, and I’m really enjoying reading about it. You seem to have a very positive spirit and it’s fun learning about a different part of the world. I’m also an expat mom living in Western Kenya, so a different set of adventures to write about. I’ll be sure to keep reading you!

    Know you’re already well-loved by many, but I’ve just tagged you in my list of funny expat women blogs (or what I re-christened the “Versatile Blogger Award”). No pressure to “pass it on,” just wanted to let you know you’re blog is a hoot. (my post is here http://wp.me/p2ctSb-qO)

    Now…if you have a solution to the hideous sandfly problem endemic in my corner of the New Territories, I’d pay good money for it…

  8. jadeluxe says:

    That is so sweet! I’m fully chuffed – thank you! 🙂
    Also, I am FULLY BITTEN by the bastard sandflies!!! Arghghghghg! Which particular corner of the NT are you in? We’re just outside Sai Kung and unfortunately our village has a creek running through it. I don’t think that helps with the bug problem.
