​Just signed a new contract yesterday, a brand new start from next year.

Looking back what 2017 has offered: it is been up and down, down for a long long time, up only just some nights that I recall. 

But thanks 2017 brings me new friends i cannot ask more for. Thanks 2017 for a new opportunity to start over. I am still seeing a better me everyday. 

Meanwhile, love story is a bit sad. But when it is meant to be, it will be. Just like they always say.

Your heart in pieces is not the moment when you are breaking up with someone, it is the time when you realize that there is never ever a going back. You can break up many times, yet make up even more times. But when it is a clean cut, there is anything more to do, especially when you know that your formor love is connected with his new partner in a way that he was never with you, such as having a baby.

I am pretty sad, in a way that I can't help not to. It sounds ridiculous since we have not seen each other for 1.5 years. Somehow, I am devastated. I went back to those far-away memories and said goodbye, this time is for real.

We met each other in a Friday night out. That was a local bar near Järntorget, nothing special about it, beer and always packed with people. With some sort of twisted, our eyes met in the crowed, those beautiful big blue eyes. You were sitting there with your colleagues, or in another way, your employees. You are born to be a good leader, a cool boss. You work hard but meanwhile, you care. You care about the people you work for, the people you work with. You were everything all I ever wanted. You made a gesture to share the table with us. You didn't talk to us. I talked to you. Forgot what was my first line. You asked me about my age. You are 10 years older than me, you didn't laugh when I made a bad joke about the age. Later in the night, we exchanged numbers for a badminton competition.

The second time we met was in a crazy hippie party in Hsingen. I stayed for 10 minutes and you left with me. You made a move by putting my hands into your jacket pocket, soft and delicate. I went to your place and sat in the sofa while watching TV, quietly. Sometimes you don't talk so much, but for the first time, I enjoy the comfortable silence with you. That was a warm and calm winter night., just like the night before Valentines. Before I got the new job, I was so nervous and you confronted me, saying that "Your time is coming!". When the summer approached, you brought me to this unknown island in the coast, showed me the best of Sweden and the calmness with you. We just enjoyed the sunset, ocean and the company of each other. You told me that you were longing for your own kid. I was telling myself "I want to have kids with you" but instead, I didn't say anything because I didn't want to scare you. Another early summer night of our date, you said to me, "Here we are going home!".

The last goodbye we had was when you put me to the shore and you drove away with you boat to Hönö, giving me a big French kiss goodbye. You probably didn't think that would be our last time to meet. Me either. We just had our first time spending 24 hours together, what happened? You asked me what I thought about you and mentioned that you were scared of relationships. I freaked out. All the insecurity and jealousy just came all along. I said the things I should not have said and I made a decision. I was saying goodbye to you with a smile, but when I turned around, I was crying. Dramatically, rains started to pour off, just like a cliche movie. That night, you sent a picture of me, driving the boat for the first time. I texted you back, confessed my feelings for you, that I could see things moving forward to be more serious, was a pity that we were not in the same page. Story ended. You never answered me back.

I am surprised that now you move on so fast and settle down so quick. Part of me, still wish there is a day we run into each other in the beautiful Gothenburg city. We catch up and we catch up... We both change and can give it a second try. What can I say now? Gothenburg is because of you, shining the way she never has.

But I am happy that your dream comes true! You have your own baby girl and you can settle before 40 now. You will be a great dad! I am saying goodbye to you, for real, even though it is a silent one.

I guess at this moment, I am free, too!

Idag firar jag 4 år som Göteborgsbo!

Sorry for being away for 2 months. Well my midsummer didnot go with the plan because Smögen was such a catch and we couldn't find a place to stay. But we went to Askim at the end and it turned out to be a good night as well! Just the weather was not so pleased but I am happy to dance salsa in a traditional Swedish dancing floor setting and celebrating with some new friends.

Four weeks of vacation went really fast! I stayed in Florence for a week to visit aunt and three weeks in Göteborg to learn how to drive. It was fun to drive and of course it takes time to make it official! SOOO my plan is to have a nice road trip in Italy next summer!

Okay to the topic, four years in Gothenburg, Sweden, have to celebrate it in a classic way. So i will go to Toso tonight and bring my new birthday/anniversary gift with me!

Pictures will come later!

Yesterday I was invited to Malin's brunch. The time of year, the city is full of people as there are so many activities happening around: Summerbrust, andralångdagen (helalångdagen) and lots of after parties for the music festival. 

It was a very nice and cosy brunch at the terrace in the sun (sometimes it shows) with a bit of background music from the music festival at Ullevi. I have met 2-3 girls before in her house-warming party and the rest were all new to me. It was fun to meet new people and get to know each other. After 5-6 hours of food and champagnes (non-stop), finally we went to Stora Teatern for some fresh air and some more drinks 😜.

It was kinda spontaneous how i met Malin back in 2014. When I was in a shop in Kungstorget and we started to talk with each other because she also happened to study in Taipei before. So we connected immediately and still in touch!

Around 21, I left earlier to meet Claudia and Yalda in Andra Lång but seems like I have missed andralångdagen again as people all sort of left. I can only say to myself, next year, next year I will go.

Same as last year, that I was stuck in Summerburst and missed the andralångdagen.

It was a good day but I hope I can speak more Swedish so I can easily understand people more!

Yesterday I was talking to Claudia and Amanda about the midsummer plan. This year I really hope it can be Smögen! I have never been to Smögen before and that makes it extra exciting! 🌟

Amanda suggested that we would take the sailing boat ⛵️from Goteborg to up there, which will take about 10-12 hours in the sea. A bit crazy, isn't it? But if it really happens, I can imagine how much fun we will have, just imagine the sun and the ocean, probably a lot of work onboard also! 💦

I have submitted my summer vacation proposal today, if nothing goes wrong, I will have 4 weeks off, from July 17 to August 13! It will be my first vacation that be completely free and take this long break from my daily routine. I am thinking to go to Lisbon to visit one old classmate or just somewhere near the beach will make me happy as a clap.

Next Monday I will take my first business trip to Shanghai and will travel with Lufthansa (transfer in Frankfurt). It is cool in different ways, especially we will join CES Asia and be part of the exciting show. Also last time when I was in Frankfurt, I was traveling from China to Sweden with my two huge suitcases and a one-way ticket. How time flies! It will be a bit emotional I can just guess.

I have been working a lot this week, especially the preparation for next week. I haven't really given a thought about what I am doing here at Nouw. But I was thinking that I have read so many interesting posts and I have run my own blog back in China for 9 years so it will be nice to just make a change in English and via a new platform.

We will see how this will lead me!
