It's so nice in the kitchen by the wood stove. It's so very, very cold upstairs in the bedroom. Nights like this, when we were kids, our parents would bring our mattresses to the kitchen and we would all camp out. I miss that.

Who is around telling you that you can't camp out in the kitchen now?

Well, Eor doesn't go for it, but also we don't have decent camping mattresses. I guess I'm a bit of a princess, but I want an inflatable! These little camp-pads don't do it for me. When we were kids we always slept on 4-inch thick rubber-foam, easy to move. Now we have a real mattress, king sized. Not easy to move. :)

We would get dressed in front of the gas oven during those very rare Hong Kong winters when it would get cold enough to be uncomfortable.
