In the two years i've lived in China now, i've built up lots of friendships and alot of memories.

My daughter is back with me in China now. Last night i went out to the bar for one last dance and to say goodbye.

I walked in to the first bar. The Dj sees me and right away walks up to say hi. ASked me how long since i've been in here. I told him about a month. I used to be in these bars atleast once a week. I'm a dancaholic, but now other things to take care of again. I didn't tell him it was my last night i'd ever be in here to dance again, the thought was too strange. The other Dj's grabbed my purse and coat and put it behind the Dj booth as always.  i danced away as everyone tried to pull me up on the stage to dance, wasn't much in the mood for it. sometimes better to stay humble  to take everything in one last time.  Went to see a waiter friend of mine shook hands. The MC roars a good " Hey Canada Girl". Crowds'  moving up and down, lights flashing in my face ( i forgot my sun glasses) Then just like that, i walked out the door for the last time.

Then it was off to my other bar. Probably the one i'm most famous for attending. Not soo much cause i like it, but it became my hang out long before it became the place to be. I made my way over to my reg spot beside the Dj booth away from the speakers blasting those highs  into my ears.. horrrible speaker set up! Right away this middle eastern guy asks me to sit with him. Declined with a smile. He fallowed me around for a while and kept trying to get me to come with him. shhheeeesh
Then my FOO, Foo is a nickname i gave this guy  his surname is Fu. Foo, i met last year in a disco, probably my oldest Disco friend. He has been great with me. 2 years now we dance together, he gets me lots of free drink introduces me to a ton of people. For a while he was telling everyone i was his wife ( was a on going joke for a while). He dances horribly , tried to copy how i dance.. Guys cannot dance like a girl it's weird.
BUt Foo as long as i've known him, probably the ONLY guy that never tried to sleep with me that i met in a disco.

Anyways Foo comes up to me and with his little english says " I love you , I need you". We hugged told him i love him too in my crappy chinese.  I told him this was my goodbye night. He kept repeating" you're not comming back?" in chinese and giving me big hugs. I think he was in disbelief a little. We've both just been around soo long sometimes didn't see eachother for a while. but we always seem to have eahothers backs and i could always count on him. It was because of him, I know most things i know about China. He taught me tale ettiquitte, he taught me chinese for the most part, it was through him and his friends i learned alot about relationships.
I danced my night away in there with him, all our little funny dances. ( I would never dance like this with anyone else or anywhere else, just weird)
Then up was a Dj friend of mine, he past me on the dance floor said his hello. I passed him a piece of paper later as he was Dj'ing. Told him to make it a extra good set for the night it would be the last one i hear.. He looked at me in disbelief, then told me we'd meet for coffee the next day if i had time. I was trying to explain i wasn't leaving for a month but just wouldn't have time to be back here, but no point i'll explain it over coffee today.

Then at about 3:30am i walked outta the door from the oozy ,smelly disco. On the cab ride home all i wanted to do was cry. I watched carefully all the buildings with chinese writting, it was as if i was trying to make a movie and  put it to memory. All of this will be nothing but a memory to me in a nother month. This chapter in my life is comming to a close and no more extentions on it. Last year it's when i realised all ths i decided to stay , i wasn't ready for goodbye.  No choice this time around.
In the Next month there's a lot of no mores, Vacation's over, Parties over. it's really hard saying goodbye.
