現在十月二十八日星期二、早上十點三十二分

Mom's getting her hair dyed. After Aunt Cyndee left on Sunday, we heard that Grandma was doing well, that if anything it was just a minor stroke, and it seems only her speech is affected for now, so she's ok and there's no need to rush over there. Mom and I went to East Nanjing Road to check out the eyeglass places there, but they were hella expensive. We ended up going to a massage place instead. I got a sixty-minute foot massage and a "scrape of foot" while Mom got a ninety-minute full-body massage that turned into a 120-minute thing. That night we had dinner with Auntie Jin Hua's son, daughter-in-law, grandson, husband, and sister, and also Auntie Xia Hong and her husband.

The next morning we got Mom's eyeglass thing taken care of on the way to meet Uncle Steve. Then we looked up one of Aunt Cyndee's old friend's older brother and he and his father and wife took us to this really high-class restaurant called .. um Dynasty Restaurant I think. I took a picture of it. Then Mom and I wandered around a department store but it was boring. We went back to Uncle Steve's hotel to wait out his safe deposit box thing and get some RMB from him, then we went to dinner. For some reason or another, I started feeling really nauseous on the cab ride there and had to bail before we even started eating. I went home, but there were two phone calls that interrupted my rest.. Both calls for my mom of course. I informed both callers of the situation with grandma, etc. the best I could with my limited Mandarin, and finally was able to get some rest.

We'll meet again with Uncle Steve today and then hopefully get to Xintiandi today before dinner with Auntie Xia Hong and her daughter tonight.

Seriously, simplified characters confound me. I wouldn't have had even half a clue what I was writing if I wrote using simplified. Taiwan, you are my only hope.
