This is a little segment I like to call... XING BU XING. (行不行?)

sooo... "xingbuxing?" means "is this OK or not?"
here are some translations from the internet: " all right; capable; competent; OK; okay; to go; to do; to travel; temporary; to walk; to go; will do"

to explain this a little better, I've thought of some illustrations.

Case #1: You want to add some hot spice to the soup you are sharing with your friend, you ask "xing bu xing?" and she replies "xing" "OK, that's fine".

Case #2: You are riding in a taxi to the train station because you are extremely late, and the driver has the audacity to try to pick up another passenger and not use the meter (so he doesn't have to pay taxes). He starts to pull over and you yell, "BU XING!!" "HEY! That is NOT OK!"

Case #3: You make your morning coffee, add the sugar, and then go to the fridge for your milk/creamer. You find that the milk is.. oh no.. expired.. for like 3 days. You are feeling really sad because your coffee is just not complete without the creaminess. Then you remember there is a tub of vanilla ice cream sitting in the freezer.. you add a spoonful of ice cream to your coffee.. all the while thinking to yourself, "行不行?"

xing in my book.

tis a new year!

I know its been a while since I've posted - been way busy, as usual.

But, its been so beautiful these past few days, I just need to share these photos with you. Yesterday, the doggies were needing some attention, so we went to the park aka the vacant lot next door that used to have a volleyball net.

Buddy and I laid under a tree and watched the squirrels..

and Daisy fetched the ball..
perfect day for some glamor shots!

Happy New Year!
