local newspaper story

I'll try to put up a copy of the article from the local newspaper.  Many people have seen this article and I have become somewhat of a local celebrity.  Last night we were stopped by a family in a restaurant after eating.  They had recognized us from the news article and pictures which had been sent to them in the text message version of the newspaper which was sent to their cell phones.  Here it is (sorry it's only in Chinese).

more wedding photos

My friend Joe has some of the most stunning photos of the wedding on flickr  I'll try to put a link on here, but it may not work since I have to post these with my e-mail. the photos should be here .   If the link doesn't work just copy and paste this ...  .  Some of his great photos can also be seen on his blog "Sweet and Sour Wimp".  There is a link to his blog on the left.

Wedding day!

The wedding was amazing.  More than 400 people attended.  It was very traditional (lots of red instead of white).  I put lots of pics on snapfish and Joe has some on flickr, so I'll try to provide links soon.  I'll write about it here on the blog in the next couple days when I get some time.

so busy!

I'm sorry we have been out of touch recently.  It has been crazy.  For example, yesterday we posed for wedding pictures for 5 hours, shopped for lighting, purchased a new bed, and a new sofa.  We also took some friends out to lunch, went to the new place to take some measurements, and met with a wedding planner that we will probably hire. And that was my only day off from work this week!  I want to thank my friend Joe for taking our pre-wedding photos.  He has spent hours taking photos of us and will, no doubt, spend many more editing photos and photographing our wedding.

marriage certificate

here's what a Chinese marriage certificate looks like.  It looks sort of like a passport..  This picture shows the outside of Cheer's and the inside of mine.


demo class

Today I taught a promotional class at the school.  It was open to the public and was supposed to be for students age 12-18.  Cheer took some pictures and made some video clips.  I'll keep the video to myself since I act like a real dork when I teach.
