pippa_ourbaby_corgi Hello IG Friends: (We somehow managed to get a VPN service to enable us to log into our IG page) I jwant to share that as we are approaching our 11th year and final leg of our stay as Diplomats in Beijing, I must say there are two (2) highlights of our China foreign posting: One is experiencing the thrill of watching the Games of the XXIX Olympiad - the Beijing Oympics. Tickets were not easy as buying from a ticket outlet. To ensure a fair and even distribution to its 1.3 billion inhabitants and the whole world including alien residents like us, the Chinese government brilliantly orchestrated to raffle off all event tickets and only those who enter to win are eligible to watch the games. As much as we would want to cheer the final or semi-final heats of swimming, gymnastics or 100-meters, we can only hope and pray our names win for just any event. And so we did. And we won not just one but two games- the elimination round for Rowing and semi-finals for Handball. Best day ever! These tix bagged top award in our Beijing hall of memories.
But look closely in the picture and you will see who really ranked GOLD in our 'Best of Beijing' category (clue: it's white, black, brown and furry all over). We believe we won in this category and are bringing home our very own "gold" - Pippa! P.S. We got Pippa here in Beijing when she was only a teeny weeny 8-week old pup and now she's almost 4. And as we are winding up and finalizing our move back home, we already brought back Pippa ahead of our scheduled departure date and entrusted her to the No.1 and best pet hotel in the country (whose clients are either celebs and media personalities and other bigwigs as we want only the best for her). The main reason for processing her papers in advance would be that should there be hitches in her documents, she would not be left behind on the day we leave (which also goes on to say that we are not leaving Beijing without her should that happen). Have a great and wonderful week everyone! We all missed you and we love you so! #ourbabypippa #pembrokewelshcorgi #goodbyeBeijing
