30 days of waiting

Well i saw my wife to airport and to check-in before she went to the international side of the metal detector. She was really not happy about been apart from me at all... neither did i but nothing could be done about it. Now i going to focus on my school works for whole month that i can finish all my things that can be done before going to china.

It seem at first that kin kin was the only one on the plane, but 
few people also come with this flight to Amsterdam.

I think now would be good time to put second readers competition for my finnish viewer and i will explain in later about the details and how you can join the competition to win awesome package.

Counting remaining days

Well it happened again, a bit more snowier day put my country s' railways in a pickle. From here to the coast city called Vaasa the railway s'  was disconnected and they had to replace them with buses until it will fixed. This storm didn't just disconnected railways thousands houses are without power again due the heavy snow fall on trees branches that has broken power lines with trees falling over them. This year is bit different from last for sure, but last few years wasn't actually normal in either way.

But in any case got my Flight ticket to shanghai booked and ready to go. Now i only have few things to do while waiting for my departure day to china. First i have see my wife to airport on 28ht of this month when she returns to Japan and get her own things straighten up and taken care. Second will be to get mu things packed up and ready to go before i leave and then there is the apartment issues again with going now again  and returning on  summer. I m really hoping that i got work practice and thesis idea done at the same visit. I m thinking about taking the one year multi-entry visa for one year to China that way i can stay longer just in case.

With just six weeks to go until my second travel plan is going to be in effect, i will just get my last remaining classes done and done then i can concentrate on working on my thesis if i get place in china after my school there. Kin kin said that she will take me around China to see all sort of cool things. One special place will be panda breeding and research center near Yan s' home town in Sichuan. It will be really something when i get there. It is one big country and more than enough people in it ;D Just hoping that my flight will be on time when i  go to China. My new passport is now bio-metric and has my finger prints and stuff in it.Only thing that remains to be get is Visa from the Chinese embassy.  It will be pain it the butt to gather all my things again and move them  to fathers care, also i gotta go leave annoucment for my move to the office. so i dont have pay extra month. Got some issues in school still but i think i will get them fixed out with no problems after we come back from China. i m keeping my fingers crossed and hopping that i could get my work done in there and maybe do base research for my thesis. I need some motivation drug to put me into gear on my school work... today i got my Swedish assignments done finally and now i have to do the other ones too. It is a pain in the ass to write all this stuff but i have only six weeks to go until i m off to China. Main goal is to graduate in year form now in this years December 2012 or next years January 2013. I don't plan to be studying more than six months over my planned graduate day which should be this spring :P

Next Destination - Shanghai, China

I got my admission and visa application for the three month exchange program in Shanghai University. I am so excite about going to able go my wife country for such a long time kind for free since my school and Social Security System are paying all the big expenses like flight ticket and living, but also since my wife going get support from the SSS which will make our life bit easier there. The main help i'll have is my wife since she is Chinese so she can help to translate things for me and teach me more on free time that i learn in the University.
One thing still kind of wonders me is that will the school be as easy as Japan 's university life for exchange students or will there be some much prepared programs for us that we can't really go outside from Shanghai... although is pretty big city itself. Anyways after my school is over in Shanghai it's nose towards Harbin my wife hometown. (which is by the way still bigger in population than Finland all together XD ) There will be our second wedding and the time i meet rest of her family like she did here in Finland for my family. I hope her other relatives are nice as she and her mother, because i have begin to have doubts that they look me to be good enough to my wife to have, but we will have to wait and see what happens when i get there.
Today we were planning to get Kin Kin her support money from the SSS and get her own bank account here in Finland, but i didn't remember that today was holiday so we ended up going to town and noticed every shop are closed so we just decided to walk around for awhile and build up our appetite to go eat in a "all you can"-buffet which was good change to all the plain food that we have cooked here at the apartment.
Nothing is better meal than all you can eat buffet after few weeks of plain potato,meat,chicken,vegetables and other things. While we were walking around town we saw these small piles of snow in the yards of one of the markets and i told kin kin to go and act like kung fu panda which was so funny to watch and when she tried to slide down this little slope she totally got stuck. She couldn't slide at all with her jeans even it was little frozen snow.
