It has almost been a year since my last post and even the previous year I have not been that active in posting ever since my father passed away. That said, I would really like to thank the readers of this blog for your constant positive feedback. I am proud of the fact that this blog has been running in one form or the other with many ups and downs for 9 years now with three quarters of a million views. With that in mind I have resolved to resurrect the project and take it to the next level. You can expect a book on the subject in a year or so and brand new features on this blog and our website (tips on learning Chinese, primer on Chinese Muslim culture, learning Chinese calligraphy etc) from now on. Expect new and exciting changes. If you have suggestions for the blog then be sure to leave your feedback below.
