Reading

I had a very nice meal at the Orchard restaurant. The food was lovely – really delicious and full of flavour. The only disappointment was the dessert – the apple pie was far too sweet and it was cold too. We chose to eat in the garden which was full of beautiful flowers and very relaxing. The service was quite good but as we were in the garden it was more difficult to find a waiter when we wanted to order something. Apart from that it was an enjoyable evening. As for the price – what a bargain, excellent value for money!

Speaking

The last gift that I gave my friend, it is a graph. I bought it from a girl who is selling something on WeChat. Friends recommend her to me. My friend is very happy because the price of the scarf is very expensive. The last gift I received maybe a dress, my mother gave me during the Spring Festival. My birthday is on 27th January so she bought the gift for me. But, that dress she bought it with me, we together.

I think flower is a good gift, especially if one of my friends she moved house or invited us to have dinner at their home, I think it’s a good gift. But, for other situation, it’s just so-so, not bad. Sometimes I gave the flower to my mother, the mother’s festival. I usually choose the flower, there are some specially meaning. It depends on the situation, if I receive flowers on my birthday, I would not be happy.
