Hello gang! It's me! Angel Chu! Yes, that's right, Beijing's own native party girl is back! They gave me my old job again! Kitty has moved back to Hong Kong for a while. She sent an email saying this was because 'Beijing is a total hole and I hate everyone in it, especially the gou-rou.com editorial team'. Hahaha! Oh Kitty is such a kidder! I can't wait till next time I see her by surprising her in Hong Kong when she least expects it.
Anyway, the main event right now is.. you guessed it! Did you guess it? No, of course you did, it's the Olympics. How wonderful it's going to be! So many people coming to see how great China is, and Beijing in particular. It'll be a tra-la-la-lympic two weeks. And don't think I'm not involved, because I am. I've been put in charge of a very special VIP drinks reception for the marathon competitors. The great thing is its really novel location. Get this - it's actually going to be on the route of the marathon! Yeah! I'll be there with a buffet and handing drinks to the athletes, playing the whole chief party hostess thing. The original plan is just to give them mineral water. But I think I can talk the managers into a few cocktails as well. I mean, sure they're health conscious, but what lady athlete is going to turn down some cool Manhattans? It's just a shame that most of the athletes won't be able to stay long. Apparently they'll 'just grab a drink as they run past'. But I guess many of them are celebrities and have busy schedules.
My boyfriend Neville, who is from one of Britain's most vibrant cities - Scunthorpe - made a joke about how they should update the name of the marathon to 'the Snickers'. I laughed but I didn't actually get it.
The other big news is the gou-rou.com Olympic gin & tonic reception. Arabella says it will be so exclusive even I won't be allowed in. She's joking of course. You can't have a party without Beijing's original party girl! Eventually somewhere will tell me where it's being held.
OK everyone, have an amaaaaaazing Olympics! Toodle-oo!
