Hey I am back.

After a hiatus of many months I have to get back to writing again. A number of readers wrote that they missed my ‘kick-ass’ posts and they would like to hear from me again on their jade pieces or their gemstones or some other spins of a story.

Anyway, I am back to New York City, in the good Old US of A, where cars still run miles on their speedometer, where you pump petrol/gas by the gallons, where you buy fruits and vegetables by the pounds, where a foot run is 12 inches, the temperature weather is quoted in Fahrenheit and where the dime ( US 10 cents coin) is smaller in size than a nickel (US 5 cents coin).

Guess that America will stick on with the Imperial unit of measurement forever.

I have been traveling to a few countries and a few States in USA. In NYC my favorites are always the museums, Strand bookstore and Broadway shows on Times Square.

Now what do you do in the Big Apple without going to museums and Broadway shows?

Anyway I will catch up with some of the enquiries on jade and gemstones and I write some on my travels.

Thank you to all those readers who still continue to read my posts.

For two weeks the Chinese celebrates the Lunar New Year, so I wish all readers a Happy and Prosperous Lunar New Year, this year being the Year of the Sheep, immaterial of what creed, religion, color or ethnicity you are….

Life is one Great Celebration!
