The Wilson family and the Chen family live together in a
large apartment near Town Square.
This helps both Alexandra and Suzanna to run their businesses easily.
The Living Room and Kitchen
Alex cooks all of her Chinese dishes on this stove every day, and you can always find a nice simmering pot
of white rice going. The radio on the stove keeps her busy as she listens to Nafy and Elizabeth V and the local jazz
station while she cooks.
Alex likes to cut out pictures and articles from the newspaper
and tape them up to the wall above the stove. This helps her follow the newest recipes and makes her smile when she
looks at the drawings of her friends and family.
Alex uses Feng Shui in her decorating
strategies for the apartment. This corner is the relationships gua, which requires a lot of pink. She found the
perfect squishy couch at a garage sale, and it fits the corner perfectly! It is also where she practices her special
instrument that was purchased in Oyghur, China.
To keep the apartment cheery and warm,
Alex hung Chinese lanterns everywhere. These make her feel happy and light up the space.
and Elinor keep their many clothes in their dresser, along with pictures of their family members back in Wisconsin, and drawers
full of old school papers and letters.
The Wilsons and the Chens both eat their
hurried meals at this bamboo table. It is also a nice place to sit and read letters or answer bills, since Alex always
keeps a nice pot of tea ready for anyone who may want it.
3. Suzi's Desk
This is where Suzi works
on the articles for her newspaper, answers letters and bills, does her homework, and puts together her newspaper for distribution.
also keeps a large black observations notebook and likes to take time to write down everything in the vicinity exactly as
she sees it.
Suzi and Elinor both share this bed, which has a trundle bed underneath that
Elinor can roll out at night to have her own bed.
Suzi likes to keep it as neat and nice-looking as possible, but Alex
always manages to Feng Shui it somehow.
All through the house are Alex's special Chinese
carpets, which she brought back from her Chinese restaurant when she lived in New York. They were her great grandparents'
when they lived in China.
dresser holds all of her trendy clothes and Mei Mei's funny little dresses, as well as holding her birdcage with her little
nightingale in it.
Alex's bed is on the ground, the way she likes it, and holds her cozy
stuffed panda bear.
Alex hasn't been home for a while, so she has a huge stack
of letters and bills to get on top of.
4. Chow - Ping
Mei Mei's stuffed orange dragon named
Chow Ping has a place of honor in the bedroom. Mei Mei still prays to him every day to try and fix his broken head,
but so far it hasn't worked out.
5. School Pictures
Alex keeps all of her friends' school pictures
taped up on her wall to make her smile when she wakes up in the morning.
