Speaking

We went to a restaurant which is near from our office and there was a small summer party there to sell bbq. They made bbq and we bought a large number of porks, beef, and shrimp. We ate dinner for 2 hours and went back home. I think that was a very nice party because there were many foods and some playing tools like ball and some entertainments in the restaurant. There were 3 colleagues there and we communicated a lot and made some jokes. I think everyone were very excited.
