My lovely team at NetQoS threw the most amazing shower today. These guys are incredibly creative. They decorated the office in an Asian motif -- it was really beautiful--and served pink cupcakes and brownies.
I thought I was a seasoned shopper but these guys managed to find gifts that I've never seen before like a red and white onesie that said "Smart" in both Chinese and English. They also found a black t-shirt that says "Elmo is My Homeboy." I might have to go the Polkadot Whale and pick up "Word to Big Bird" for Alina. The piece de resistance (I have no idea if i spelled that correctly) was a large tiered diaper cake with red ribbons and a Panda bear on top. Plus they gave me all sorts of cute little clothes, blankets and socks.Zara will love them.
They also managed to find My Mei Mei (little sister)- a cute little book I read to Alina last night.
What a creative, fun group of people. I'll miss their stories and humor while I'm in China.
