My husband said a Japanese verb but I didn’t know the mean.I guessed it’s a kind of building style.
Actually,he will come back to Shanghai at Friday.We haven’t seen each other for 2 months.We want to date at Saturday but my husband need to measurements to order a suits fits his body at ordermade suits store because we will take wedding on March next year.

Once I let models dressed clothes as a fitter.I should help them to change next set as soon as possible.One model is a very nice person but he is always slowly to do everything.For example,When he tie the shoes,he will take up the two shoes ropes by two hands at first,and adjust both to same length.I can’t hate him even he is too slow because he is really handsome and he like to talk to me with a little Chinese that he knows.It’s cute but I really hope he can focus on his speed not weird things.

I asked him why you chose Spain? My husband said a Japanese word but I don’t know the meaning. I guess it’s a kind of building style / architecture.
Actually,he will come back to Shanghai on Friday. We haven’t seen each other for 2 months. We want to have a date on Saturday but my husband needs to have a suit measured at a made-to-measure suit store because we will have a / our wedding in March next year.

Once / One of the times that I was letting models get dressed as a fitter, I needed to help them to change into the next set as soon as possible. One model is a very nice person but he always does everything slowly. For example, when he ties the shoes, he will pick up the 2 shoe laces at first, and adjust both to the same length. I can’t hate him even he is too slow because he is really handsome and he likes to talk to me with a little Chinese that he knows. It’s cute but I really hope he can focus on his speed, and not weird things.
