#Starbucks can’t figure out how to make my chocolate blended cream (aka #frappuccino). . . . Sometimes it has #coffee in it (😖). Sometimes not (🤗) Sometimes #chocolate sauce. Sometimes #cocoa powder. Sometimes nothing. Sometimes #whippedcream. Sometimes not. At this point, I’m not sure what it is supposed to look like. It’s always a #daily surprise! At least it’s usually #cuteguys making it 🙂
These #dentist pillows from Walmart in China were HUGE – came to my hips. . . They were in the #backtoschool supplies. I confess – I don’t see the point 😂 To remind you kids when they wake up to brush their #teeth? For classsroom #decorations?
WHERE WOULD YOU PUT THEM?!?
Sooooo. I recently had to buy a new #laptop 😭 Lawrence the Laptop has a broken touchpad, broken microphone jack, crashing battery, a fan that’s competing with airplanes for loudest lift-off, and lose USB ports. Poor baby!
After exhaustive research I decidedto get a #Samsung notebook 9. At 13.3 inches and super lightweight, it’snice for travel. Unfortunately #Samsung US website SUCKS and I couldn’t get it ordered before my mom came to #China. So I thought, why not go to #Korea! I’m there on vacay – hone of #Samsung. No prob!
Big prob! The laptop was $400 more expensive for a lower quality product! Instead of i7 they had i5 and instead of 16RAM, it was 8RAM. 😡😡
BUT! I was headed to #China and had to have a computer, so I picked it up anyway. Lil – funniest thing. So, the dude waiting on me was the cutest guy. Very nice, good English, helpful. But I was complaining (spectacularly) about the price. So he promised to give me a gift 😬
My gift? – A selfie stick, a toothbrush holder (with toothbrush! woop!), and a car magnet 😂😅😜😝 In fact, he gave me another set to my mom as well. Lololol. Not sure it was worth $400, but you know? I’m still laughing about it – so they’re probably #priceless.
Couple notes for potential expats:
1) Did you know many #computer products bought in the #US require that you keep the product in theUS to maintain warranty?
2) Your US warranty won’t always work abroad – #Dell won’t service my #laptop in #China even though it has centers here Cause I have a US warranty.
3) Foreign warranty’s may not be as good as the US version. So be careful before agreeing to transfer warranty from one country to another.
When your fruit is too pokey to handle . . . 😂 The spines are really hard and pointy.
But! How else do I warm it up after I put it in the freezer to cool off?
When you run into #desserts that you’re just not sure about. . . . 🤔 😛 And then you actually try and are like, ‘Just say no to dessert!’
I’m just saying, I never meet a dessert I won’t eat and I left BOTH of these on the table. Still not sure about the second, but the first was #greentea jello with red beans and lychee fruit. 😮
Would y’all try it?!?
That moment where going home from work, you become an involuntary participant in the winter Olympics. . . . Ice Slip & Slide Gold Champion – that’s me! * This is why Changchun is home to China’s Olympic Ice Skating team. . .
