China Once, China Twice

What I had never planned to do

A Chinese Wedding Scrap-Book April 17, 2012

Married on 5/10/2011

To understand why I used print media to create a Chinese Wedding scrap-book that I mailed to China, is explained in short chapter blog posts.

This post ties them together, the reader has all thirteen links in sequence.  It is a 100 page scrap-book scanned in, but it’s also a rather romantic non-fiction story.

I’m happy to report that the two main characters, Sam and Daisy, will once again be landing on US soil in late May of 2012.  It will be Daisy’s second visit to the USA.


Why a scrap-book?

Chapter 1 – Welcome to New Jersey

Chapter 2 – Doylestown, PA

Chapter 3 – Qingdao

Chapter 4 – Qingdao Dinner Celebration

Chapter 5 – Mother’s Day in Wuhan

Chapter 8 – More on the Wedding Ceremony

Chapter 9 – Wedding Cake and Guests

The Scrap-Book For China, Chapter 10, The Day Continues January 29, 2012

Six scanned in scrap-book pages will briefly show you where we rested, and then visited the home where Daisy grew up.

From the USA, six guests attended the wedding.  Myself, Sam’s father, and from Texas his aunt, uncle and two cousins were there.

Jeff was born in the USA, his parents were born in China.  He grew up on the west coast, and spoke Mandarin at home.  Today, Jeff lives in China.

A very comfortable place to rest

Some were more tired than others

It was an hour ride from our hotel to the wedding

The warm slippers, I thought, were the best gifts

Not sure he will actually use this
