Dragon Boat Festival? Tuen Ng Festival? Learn the history behind the 2009 celebrations, to be held May 28.
May 1st is International Labor Day in China, or May Day. I will spend May 1 taking part in another ancient ritual: Happy Hour.
What is the Qing Ming festival ( or Qingming or Ching Ming)? Good question.

Once upon a time, there was an orphaned cowherder. One day he spotted seven fairy sisters skinny-dipping in a lake…The story of Chinese Valentines Day.
The above photo was taken of a beautiful Asian model at the Interphoto Shanghai show. I’ll keep shooting or another 2.5 days.
Delivering Babies in China – One man’s experience. As with most things in China – having a baby is not an easy task.
Mrs. Stevo and I will go to the hospital this morning – the goal being the birth of Baby Stevo. My lovely wife is not due until June 11 but during a recent hospital visit the doctor suggested Mrs. Stevo induce labour.
Mrs. Stevo is quite round and moving at a snails pace. We have finally moved into Chateau Stevo, freshly remodeled.
The weather in Shenzhen, China – actually across the entire region – has been dark and dreadful as of late. It’s not winter anymore, but the March/April rainy blahs can get you down.
I have moved. Not into the freshly renovated Chateau Stevo – that’s not ready yet. Mrs. Stevo is living with a friend and I am couch surfing.
