Wuxi Expats can all agree that the Queen of the Wuxi China Expatdom, Ayira: The Chosen One, is looking mighty fine a year after having given birth to the WCE Royal Triplets.
The Expatdom got to see the Queen at a press conference where she commented on her being nominated for the 2012 Wuxi Expat Best Legs Award.
Queen Ayira, who is also an economist having studied under the great Milton Friedman and a champion female boxer, put her careers on hold to raise her triplet sons, Buckley, Hayek, and Friedman who were born on Christmas Day 2011.
“It was a big change for me. Going from reading economic statistics, pointing our the silliness of the Paul Krugmans of the world, and constantly training for boxing bouts, to changing diapers and cooking meals for my sons. But it is very satisfying. Women, I have come to realize, are meant to be mothers. This career stuff I was doing was sheer egotism on my part. I don’t know what the heck I was thinking!” said Ayira who could have easily chosen to have nannies look after her children but insisted on being a hands-on and roll-up-the-sleeves kind of parent.
Ayira, however, is coming out of retirement to box in one more bout. “I am scheduled to fight Sandra Fluke at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas on February 1.” said Ayira. Pausing to choose her words carefully, Ayira then said “That woman, so-called, needs a some common sense knocked into her! And I got the fists that can do it!”
Asked how she kept her legs looking so good, Ayira told the press conference that she took her three sons for a run around Tai Lake everyday. The 50 km run is good for growing boys!” said the Wuxi Expat Queen with the authority of one who should know.
Her proud husband: His Majesty, the King of the Wuxi China Expatdom, Gorzo the Mighty, told the press conference that he was more in love with his wife now than the day he first laid eyes on her. “Pretty soon, I think our marriage will have a passion to rival that of Caesar & Cleopatra and Archduke Sir Harry Moore & Miss Moneypenny!” exclaimed His Majesty with a pride that was blushing, as only that of a divine Monarch was capable.
His Majesty then proclaimed to the nodding agreement of all in the audience that his wife had “great gams.”
