Sweaters and sushi and Starbucks, oh my!

+FYI, "Week o' China" is now officially "Day o' China, Plus a Few Scattered Posts". I'd forgotten how annoying the censored Chinese internet can be (I miss unblocked Blogspot!). Plus, I've been running around Beijing marveling at amazing architecture and working, working, working. Okay, and watching the entirety of Ugly Betty season 1. Can you believe I haven't seen it yet? *Love.*
+The kitties are apparently waiting for me at home with gifts of amazing faux fur shrugs from Junction Vintage (a small but sweet little vintage emporium on U Street, where I was coveting said shrug last week). I head back to the U.S. on Monday and I can't wait. I'm having a complete blast in Beijing – I seriously love this city so much; there is just something new and fascinating around every corner - but really, there's no place like home. Especially if home is even slightly warmer than the sub-zero temperatures and the absolutely blustery, bone-chilling winds we've been experiencing here this week.
+I must thank my fellow Singaporean blogger Chubby Hubby and his fab assistant Daphne for taking me to lunch yesterday at Hatsune (a.k.a. my favorite sushi place ever, thanks in part to a fantastic dish called the Moto-roll-ah. It is heaven on a plate, I tell you). Also, let it be known that ordering lunch for a well-known food blogger is more stressful than one should be in the noon hour.
+Susie Bubble and I are currently freaking out over the same fashion dilemmas. Which is kind of reassuring.
+And, have you submitted your votes for the Fashion Blogger Awards? I found it just insanely hard to narrow down. Don't say I didn't warn you.
+You must click here and here. Trust me.
+I am also a little embarrassed to report that I have been wearing the same sweater for the past three days. It is the warmest thing I brought, by far, so I will probably keep wearing it until I leave (or until it starts smelling badly of secondhand smoke and fried meats, whichever comes first). Yes, it is really that cold here.
I'm off to swill some coffee and think (rather excitedly) about what to have for lunch!
