After having now lived in Dallas for almost a year, I thought it was about time I provide a little Dallas Restaurant Guide, for our friends when they visit!

Hey there! I’ve noticed a lot of new followers lately, so welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I started blogging in 2012, to document my journey of living abroad. Despite occasional attempts to focus on specific subject matters over the years, I always come back to the personal blog format: I write about myself and the stuff I think is worth sharing. I thought it would be fun to reflect on this crazy journey by re-posting some of my favorite posts over the years. I hope you enjoy.

Built in 1855, under British rule, the original structure was influenced by the Colonial Renaissance movement, which was sweeping across Europe at the time. In the early 1940’s, under Japanese rule, the home went through an extensive remodel resulting in today’s more Japanese-neoclassical form.
Living in a world where being “politically correct” is a bad thing, where people are accustomed to saying whatever the hell they want, whenever they want, with little or no regard to those around them, makes me long for the good old days. I miss kindness. I miss respect and dignity. If you ask me, our world needs more polite-ical correctness!!!
It will come back. I know it will come back. It has to come back!
Around the globe, about 19% of the world’s population celebrate Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year. 2016 is the year of the monkey and depending on your zodiac sign, you may either come across good or bad fortune in various aspects of your life.
For all my Americans peeps living in Hong Kong, or anywhere for that matter, listen up! You might want to check your passports. The State Department recently announced it is ending the practice of adding new pages to existing passport books.
