Home Sweet Home

Home sweet home, literally.

Warning: There will be many puns

My stay in Chengdu, China keeps getting sweeter and sweeter as the days go by. Popular department store IFS celebrated their first anniversary in Chengdu with a SWEET surprise. Artists Craig & Karl created a “Sweet as One” campaign and sugar coated the outside streets of IFS with a candy mosaic. But the sugar didn’t stop pouring on the streets; the artists also created an art installation for inside the department store.

The candy isn’t just good enough to eat- it’s good enough to wear!

Sweet, Sweet Respect.

On Saturday the 31st, the YMCA/YWCA of Chengdu held an activity for the short and sweet members of the Y community- the children. The activities were all about giving that sweet, sweet respect. To show just how sweet respect is, the kiddos, a few staff members, and myself made posters out of candy portraying different versions of respect. (Yes, everyone got to fill their pockets with candy before leaving. Duhh.)

I’m keeping this post short…and sweet. But keep checking back for more adventures here in Chengdu, China! Oh, and here’s that panda I promised you.
