Speaking

i went to da lian last week. My boss asked me to went to dalian to the designer company because I’m management the buyer for a hotel. I went there to make a communication with a designer. We talked the materials and furniture and the stone and they took me to eat the sea food it’s very delicious and I am very surprised dalian is a very clean city. I lived in Shanghai from my born to now so I think dalian’s a very different from Shanghai but it’s very surprised me it’s very clean and the person is very passionate. This is a business trip so when I get off the plane they came to the airport to pick me up and they took me to eat the very delicious sea food and they booked the hotel for me.
