Greetings From China!

Hi Everybody!

Me and Missy are in still in China and having quite an adventure! Right now, we're in the city of Quanzhou, at this really nice hotel called the Yeohwa Hotel...we just found out that the people on our floor are entitled to FREE CAKE, so we're going to take advantage of that! This is the first hotel we've stayed at that offered free internet access, so I thought I'd write a quick little blurb. I'd write more, but me and Missy are really really hungry...we visited many factories today, and one of them were kind enough to buy us lunch from PIZZA HUT...we informed them ahead of time that we were vegetarian, and so they got us a veggie pizza and some other "funny" food items...the pizza had CORN NIBBLETS on it! On top of that, we got a tub of corn nibblets that had chunks of WATERMELON in it! I KID YOU NOT! I'd share the photos with you (over 600 at this point), but right now, I have no way to download them...so you'll have to wait till we get back. We spent 10 hours driving from Huangyan to Xiamen yesterday night, after a couple of our flights got cancelled. And now we are in Quanzhou...and now we're going to eat!

Anyways, we're having the time of our lives right now...this past week has gone by a lot quicker than we thought...so far, we can tell you that SHANGHAI is DA BOMB...waaaaay cool. It's a hipster shopper's paradise. And Xiamen is way cool too...kinda like China's version of San Francisco, but with a much larger Chinatown (haha). Too bad we couldn't spend more time there...Sunday we'll be in Hong Kong for a three days, and then we take a marathon flight back home...ugh.

Well, Missy is wanting some free cake, so I better log off...the next time I get to write probably won't happen again until we get to Hong Kong, and even then, who knows what will happen. This trip has been pretty crazy and unpredictable. But all in all, we're happy to be having this experience...

Dear Hater,

hmmmm...I don't even know if it's worth my time to address you. So I'll just address everyone this one and only time. Anyone with any sense or two pennies in their pocket knows why people hate on other people...mostly, it's because they are jealous of what others have going on in their lives, especially when they don't have much going on in their own; or, they feel a total lack of self-worth and/or self-confidence; or, they feel like the world has somehow short-changed them in some way and they feel that "life isn't fair"; or, they suffer from some sort of inferiority complex and they pump themselves up by bullying other people...anyways, these people vent their frustrations by projecting their self-hatred and anger towards something or someone else that seems like an easy target...by doing so through the internet in an anonymous fashion also shows that they are not only haters and bullies, but also cowards...

It's interesting that some people feel so strongly and negatively about what we do and how we think that they feel that it's their duty to write in and tell us in an effort to somehow hurt our feelings. Our feelings aren't hurt - both Missy and I have had to deal with haters for quite some time now - it just comes with the territory. Our standard response to haterism is like, "whatever"...we're actually pretty blasé about it. Instead of having hurt feelings, we just feel very sorry that some people's lives are such that all they can do is waste their time and energy writing hateful things to our blog or some other public forum in an effort to discredit us, make us look bad, make us angry, or make us sad. Instead, they should just use those resources to make their own lives better and more enjoyable. Most of the time, I tend to think that most haters are just plain lazy - instead of using whatever energy they do have to make their own lives cool and whatnot, they'd rather spend their down time hating on others...I mean, that must be easier to do that then to do something that requires effort, dedication, talent, hard work, etc...right? See, I wouldn't know exactly, because I'm not a hater...

Anyways, regardless of what anyone thinks, me and Missy are going to continue to do what we do best - have fun and find wonderment and awesomeness in the world around us. If that makes us "lame" in anyone's opinion, then so be it. That's just how we roll. And we're not about to apologize for being who we are. We love the skin we're in. So, maybe you haters out there should try having lives of your own and concentrate on making things happen for yourselves instead of concentrating on hating on ours. Because really - all this hating on us - it's not worth your time. Your opinion means very little to us. The only opinions that matter to us are those of our family and friends. Everthing else is just dirt on our shoulders - dirt that is easily shrugged off.
