I'm so jealous! I finally got my Green Card, so I might be coming to see you. All I want to do is travel, travel, travel! Miss you, E.

Hi Guys,
Lovely to hear from you, and I love the new website. I had trouble getting onto the old one. I am meant to be working, but I think I will just catch up on what has been going on in your lives! That Palm beach resort looked amazing. You both look really well, and I'm glad you are still enjoying your stay.

Take care
Thanks Cathy, for this message and the other other mails you've sent. I'm sorry I've been a bit slack in replying to them but I want you to know they've been greatly received. Hope life is treating you well.
Take Care, Si and Em.

Hi Si & Em, Happy Christmas & Merry New Year! Was great to talk to you on Xmas Day, hope you enjoyed your film marathon! Not much festive tv to miss over here - it was dire & Eastenders was full of doom & gloom. Gearing up for the snow here now, will let you know how bad it gets... xxx
Hi bear,
It was great to see you on the webcam and speak to you as well. Hope you don't get snowed in! We are cold enough over here and it's 19 degrees! Can't wait to see you. Not many sleeps now.....
Em and Si xxx

Hello you 2
Hope you got my update mail (hotmail) the other day. Sent it from work and their emails are not particularly reliable. Great new site can't wait for more updates. Hope you are both keeping well.
Ciao for now!
Thanks for the update mail Mr Steptoe. I really enjoyed reading it and hearing what you and the gang are up to. Take care.

Emma, fantastic website. I've always said you write it all down. I'll get you published as a travel writer yet. May even use some of your entries with my Year Nine kids if that's ok? Isn't teaching great? Hope you're well - you both look great in the photos. Take care, lots of love and luck, Nicola xxxxx
Hi Nic, good to hear from you. Glad you like it. How much commission will you be after if we get published?!! Loving the teaching - you were right. (God forbid I may have finally found a career!) Feel free to use our stuff at school. Maybe I'll come in and speak Chinese to your kids when I get home! E x
From Sally-Ann - Monday, 7th November 2005, 12:34 (GMT)
Hey guys. Your website looks great and you both look really well in your photos. Em, can you believe it's only 11 days til this years CiN appeal - that's 2 years since you came and helped out! Oh and by the way - Kristina is married now and Stewart is being sent to China to work on Miss's all going on! Love you lots. Salxx
Hi Sal! Good to hear from you. Good luck with the appeal. When's Stewart in China? Maybe he can make a diversion and bring me a cadburys advent calendar!!!
Take care buddy, Em xxx
From Andy - Wednesday, 9th November 2005, 22:43 (GMT)
Psi you gibbon! Thought id add a message seeing all the others are for Emma. Sign onto MSN once in a while will ya! Anyhoo-top site and looks like ya having a great time. See ya soon mate
Cheers Dude,

I'll try and log-on to the old MSN a bit more often but with the time delay I'm normally tucked up in bed by the time most of you finish work. Although that probably doesn't matter for those of you lucky enough to have your own laptop.

Take Care,

From Steve - Monday, 14th November 2005, 07:21 (GMT)

From Percy - Monday, 3rd July 2006, 14:57 (GMT)
Nice to hear you guys are hitting the road again! Being a tour leader in Guangzhou, I've been enjoying my job for nearly a year, which has brought me a lot of fun and made me a brand new Percy. Now the boss of my department asks me to take a break and to help build up a purchasing group for the outbound tour market. Well, that means staying at the office and doing some paperworks. Anyway, I think it's good for me to do something different and learn more about how the department even the whole company works. Maybe it won't be long. During this period, I can pick up my Japanese and French courses and try to read books which I've collected from different countries.



By the way, I took a trip to Taiwan last month. TW is such a beautiful place! If you're interested, I can send you some pix.
Hi Percy,
Great to hear from you. Sounds like you had a great time as a tour leader. Good luck in your new job. Please send us some pictures and keep in touch! If you are in Beijing in the next year then we must meet up.
Take care,
Si and Emma
