Probably the best Chinese noodles I’ve eaten in Japan. Three years spent in China allow me to say that it was the real stuff :) Somwewhere in Akasaka, can’t remember the name of the restaurant but will not forget the location !
Bored at Macau Airport…
Most of our furniture come from China (bought all of it in Beijing before moving to Tokyo). Unfortunately, because of their eating habits, Chinese dining tables tend to be too high (easier to put your face in your plate). So this morning, after years of procrastinating, I decided to shorten the table: took me almost ...
This photo of lucky charms taken during the Chinese New Year celebaration in Beijing has been the photo I have sold most :-) All my chinese new year photos in this nice gallery.

I like the way my Chinese colleagues raise their hand :D
Pictured above, some infamous Sochu ;-)
Now, that’s what I would call a foreigner-friendly power plug !
After being stuck for 13 hours in a meeting room, strange things start to happen! Pictured above, an improvisation of privacy screen :D
mmm… maybe not ;-) and yes, that’s where we had lunch !
Little moment of calm before the storm.
Plethora of sichuan food for ~2€ each!
Poor design for the quality label logo in China, at least from European viewpoint: difficult not to be reminded of the Schutzstaffel SS.
It has arrived: made in Australia, sold in US, delivered in China, will be used in Japan :)
A lot more impressive in Mummy 3 to be honest ;-)
