Speaking

One of my best friends come to SH from HK. She will stay here for maybe one week so we already booked some time to have dinner. She is my classmates in college. She get a master in HK and worked there. She already graduated. She moved there for four years. HK is horrible recently, so she cannot work so she’s free recently. But now, she cannot go back to HK.

Her job is very good but these two years it depends on the horrible situation, it’s more and more bad. Especially in this year, she have no clients. Last month, the tickets from SH to SY is just 90 yuan.
