Coming back to Wuhan, I spent the rest of my golden holiday shopping.  I found these re-usable pocket heaters that lasts 24 hours at an outdoors shop.  Although it looked very appealing, I’m not sure how to get its heat source since it’s completely written in Korean.

All the foreigners in the company came to Wuhan for a 2-day training.  The day before the training it was shortened to one day.  When we had the training, it was shortened to half a day (Thank god, I could see a couple folks falling asleep in the training…).  After the training we went one of the best restaurants near the office.

As soon as I have arrived BeiJing, I went to China Mobile to get my phone number.  As soon as I arrived to the register, I was told to get my number online.  So I did, and I got the confirmation number, but then I was told that the confirmation number was useless, what I need is the phone number itself.
