Maggie and her family.



 Maggie was one of my IELTS students at Jiahua in Shenyang,

and became a second daughter to me.

She told her mother that I liked dumplings,

and so on 22 December 2002, their home was the very first

household that I visited in China.

Her mom prepared enough food for an army.


I was introduced to the Chinese love affair with the Kareoke phenomenon.



And to the delight of her mom,

I even pretended that I could dance.
