Here are some photos from our Beijing adventures, in no particular order! We still have many other places that we visited and will post some more.



It must feel really nice to win after what happened in Athens! Congrats to the USA team for hanging in there. It actually was a tough game. Spain did not back down for moment. They were within 2 points in the 4Th quarter, but D. Wade put in a 3 pointer in the last 2 minutes, that put the boys over the top. GREAT GAME! Congrats to Spain for the Silver also!

Well I'm off the to closing ceremonies and all the after parties! Will tell you about all the fun after! And by the way congrats to all the Olympic athletes. You have provided us with memorable games, Thank You!

Shawn Johnson Finally Won Gold Last Night!

Good Morning from Beijing, where it is Wednesday August 20th, but evening Miami time. So you haven't seen it yet, but I don't care. Shawn Johnson finally won a gold medal on the balance-beam.

In some of the strangest gymnastic scoring, they finally didn't have a choice..she was the best and there was no stealing this one. Nastia took the Silver medal. Yeah!

I'm finally done with some of the events until this Friday and time to party in Beijing. We have been to a few clubs & bars while here. I loved the Lan Club, Suzie Wong & China Doll. We had a few American friends join us!

Next I'm going to show you some sights & sounds of Beijing. Also what we've been eating and the shopping is really something else. Everything is about bargaining here. You are suppose to end up at about 50% of whatever their offer is. Your suppose to say "No No" too expensive and walk away so that they come & chase after you. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don'! There are no "real antiques" in the market place, but still nice things for gifts and around the house.

Lili & I want to take a day trip to Lijiang, which has been declared an old historic city. It's like time stopped there in China. We have so much to share with you! We will return later with more pictures & information!

Giam Pa (I hope I spelled that right)

We Are Back Today!

We are uploading Bibi & Lili's adventures now. So sorry for the delay!

Congratulations! The holder of 16 Olympic medals, 14 Gold, 8 from this Olympics. The golden boy...he is, well PHELPIAN!


Friday, August 15, 2008


I don't know how he did it, but he managed to just reach out and touch the wall 1/100th of a second before the other guy. The water cube erupted with screams of jubilation!
Wow! Lili & I are just amazed!


This Is Turning Out To Be A Great Olympics!

Hello Bibites! I hope all of you are enjoying the Olympics as much as we are! Of course this is not just about USA, but I have to tell you this morning in Beijing (their time), was fantastic for the USA! Gold & Bronze for Nastia Liukin & Shawn Johnson, the first ever in woman's all around gymnastics. They nailed their routines. I'm personally having issues with the is starting to remind me of that ice skating judging scandal, some years ago. Does anyone remember that....hummmm?

And boy wonder? Well what can we say...Go PHELPS! Congrats also to Ryan Lochte (from Florida..Yeah)for his first individual gold. Let me not forget the golden girls of beach volleyball May-Treanor & Walsh. They finally had some serious competition from Belgium (that one girl was really big), but came from behind and still have not lost a match yet. What is it now that games or matches..I can't keep track.

Well it's time to cover other sports this weekend and finally Bibi & Lili have checked in and submitted some really fun stuff. They said they were really busy (Lili confessed...exhausted). Yeah right, excuses, excuses! Their fans have been waiting..okay worth the wait. Well this guest blogger is turning the blog back over to the girls.

Check out Bibi at Tianamen Square! Some people have all the luck!

Where Are Bibi & Lili In Beijing?

We are looking for those two woman...has anyone seen them? By the way the China won the gold in woman's gymnastics and USA took the Silver, and I'm excited for them, but...Bibi & Lili send us adventures!!!!

The Man of The Hour...Michael Phelps!

It's official! He is the all time Gold wining medalist in Olympic history! Another 2 gold medals this morning in Beijing. That's five this Olympics if your keeping count.

Bibi & Lili are at the woman's final team gymnastics and just text that the USA woman fell apart on the last 2 rotations. They are in 2nd place right now. China will really have to lose it for USA to get the gold.

Keep you posted!

Congrats To The Chinese Men's Gymnastic Team!

It looked scary for a moment, but there was little doubt that they would pull out a gold medal. The big surprise of course was the USA men's team stepped up and got the bronze medal! For a first time team, they were really good and very motivated. They slipped a little in the end, moving from Silver to Bronze, but I'm sure they are not complaining!

By the way Bibi & Lili have posted so many good images, we are editing to upload our current adventures.

See You Shortly!

Phelps Just Won His 3 Gold Medal

Phelps might be word..."Might". That is 2 world records he has broken. USA Gold & Bronze medal in this meet!

Natalie Coughlin just won Gold too in the backstroke & Margaret Hoelzer the Bronze medal.

And if that wasn't enough, Aaron Peirsol just won Gold in 100m backstroke with Matt Grevers taking Silver!



I'm Really Enjoying The Water Cube Sports!

Bibi, Lili & Louis are running around Beijing having way too much fun, as was President Bush. Every game they went to, there he was! They didn't nail an interview, that honor went to Bob Costas. I have never seen Bush so relaxed in interview. He was so giddy and Bob was doing a nice job of grilling him.

Well if you the missed men's 4x100m free relay race, you really missed one of the best swim meets I've seen. What a nail biter! I still can't believe USA won. I guess that is why they call Jason Lezak a closer. I'm very happy for Phelps, Weber-Gale, Jones & Lezak! I look forward to Phelps trying to get 8 medals.

The men's basketball game was exciting also, just because China really had their hopes high and there was electric energy in the air. Having 2 presidents in the crowd, China & USA, gave that extra spark. I personally think China has put too much pressure on Yao Ming to deliver a miracle. He can't do it alone, basket is a "team" sport and you need the whole team to help win, especially against Wade, Lebron & Kobe.


Carrie Walsh & Misty May-Treanor are just mopping up the competition in beach volleyball. After all these woman have won 103 straight matches. I had the pleasure of watching them in Miami Beach...they are good! So that is 2 straight wins for them.

China is 2 for 2 in diving. The synchronized diving is an interesting sport to watch. That is really a lot of work to be synchro like that.

A Spectacular Opening Cermony Friday Night!

Well what can Bibi & Lili say, but special, special special! It was over the top fabulous as opening ceremonies go! We certainly hope all of you got a chance to watch this on TV. My favorite torch lighting was the bow & arrow, until last night. Watching that Olympian run around the top of that entire stadium, defied logic, but it was great. Now that the ceremonies are finished until the 24th of August, time to report on some games.

Today Is The Day! Finally 8-8-8 Has Arrived! Tonight The Opening Ceremony!

Can you's finally August 8th, 2008 or 8-8-8 for the Chinese!
Tonight Bibi & Lili are attending the Opening Night Cermonies at the now famous Birds Nest Stadium.
There will be 100,000 spectators, 14,000 athletes, and we hear the fireworks are going to be over the top, with fireworks being launched from over 1800 sites around Beijing! Now that is what I call a fireworks show! We have so many great new photos to share with you, but because today is a very busy day, we will share everything with you starting tomorrow.

The first Olympic games have already taken place in Soccer. The American women lost their game on Wednesday, but the men are doing great.
US beat Japan, Brazil outskilled Belgium, Italy won against Honduras & Australia & Serbia are tied 1-1.

In the comic page of today, Bibi & Lili go dining at one of Beijing's hottest new restaurants & clubs...The LAN CLUB. Designed by Philippe Starck this place is fabulous! Located in the Chaoyang province of town, at the LG Twin Towers building,
12 Jianguomenwai Dajie, 4th Fl. Of course you have to be really special to get reservation during the Olympics.

Will I have much to do today, so signing off until very late tonight. By the way, I need you Bibites to start voting!

We Are Leaving Hong Kong! On Our Way To The Mainland! Five days To Go!

Hello Bibites! That is my new name for my fans and new visitors alike! It's to believe that after talking about this adventure for two years, this week has finally arrived. The Chinese must be getting nervous on many levels. This Olympics is their coming out party and I can't imagine how difficult it is to loosen your power grip. After all this is still a communist country with tight control. The story this week of the media storm over their blocking access to dissident information, caused the Chinese government to back down and remove the firewall on the internet (did not apply to Tibet). For the next three weeks, centuries of privacy are out the window. Not sure they will ever be able to close it ago, but this is Chinese we are talking, so don't under estimate them.

But anyway I have some Bibi advice this week. Remember Murphy's law...if it can go wrong, it will! So don't worry about being perfect and the best. Just do your best, have a backup plan, and we will love all your effort and showmanship the same. If something goes wrong, laugh it off (of course as long as no one gets hurt), say "Oh, Murphy's law" and keep moving. The majority of people only see flaws if you point them out.

Games Begin In 7 Days! Our China Adventure Starts With a Stop Over in Hong Kong!

Good Morning! How excited was I to just witness that beautiful solar eclipse in China. The next one in America is in 2017 and will be seen across America! But getting back to the Olympics, Bibi & Lili are in Hong Kong on their first leg of The Bibi & Lili China Adventures. They are pleased to be joined by the fabulous Louis Aguirre of Deco Drive in Miami. It seems that shopping, eating & more shopping is the thing to do in Hong Kong. This adventure will take place through The Adventures of Bibi & Friends Comics. As you can see we posted our our first pages and know that you will be pleased to join our adventures together! I will share all types of information with you over the next few weeks, so sit back & enjoy the ride! You can also follow the comics at
