Trip to the Great Wall
We were absent from our blog for the last 10 days as we went on our honey moon trip to China. It was a very wonderful trip with lots of interesting stories to tell.

This is usually a must if the husband is the oldest child as he does the responsibility of looking after the parents when they get older. Nowadays, unlike in the past, each family has only one or two children, and ...
