Farewell Dora Chow

Dora Chow is gone.

I sent her away for the X'mas Charity.

Dear Janaya,

This is probably not the Princess Dora you wished for, but her name is also Dora. Dora Chow, she is my princess.

I made Dora Chow almost 3 years ago. I designed clothes for her. I took her to photo shoot. She is one of a kind.

Yesterday I saw your wish on the Angel Tree and I took it. I didn’t know Princess Dora until I Googled it back home. I hesitated if you would appreciate my Dora. Nonetheless I decided to send my Dora to you this Christmas. She’s been my angel, and I hope she will be yours too.

If you have any questions about Dora Chow, about making clothes or doing any other needlework, I’ll be very happy to hear from you.

I wish you a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!

Love and peace,

Shanfan Huang

The Jew and the Chinese

A Jewish man saw a busy highway exit and thought: A great opportunity to open a gas station here! The second Jew saw the first man doing very well, so he opened a restaurant next to the gas station. The third Jew came over, thought: Wow they got so many customers everyday! Wouldn't it be nice to open a convenience store here! Not long after, this never-heard-of highway exit has grown to be a prosperous little town.

On the other side of the world: A Chinese man saw a busy highway exit and thought: A great opportunity to open a gas station here! The second Chinese saw the first man doing very well, so he opened another gas station just across the road, and priced his gas slightly cheaper. The third Chinese came over, thought: Wow they got so many customers everyday! Running a gas station is indeed a promising business! ... Not long after, everyone went bankrupt.
