Speaking

Because in the morning my friend picked may problems to me, yesterday night we also had social dinner. he thought I did not very good. He thought the dishes I ordered were not perfect, some of them not adapt, at the end I  didn’t order the taxi for our clients. so he’s not happy.

I think, when he told that to me, I must be sad, but `I know thats my problem so I can accept it and I have to sing more next. I must calm down.

Actually I have three friends who are very close to me but we only meet one or two times in months. We are very busy and everyone has different things to do. Its difficult to find time to meet. I almost don’t meet them for half a months. Have dinner/brunch/afternoon brunch, red tea. Many red smell like flower or fruits.

I usually shop online by tabao, everything, clothes and daily products, two dresses. `One is blue and another is yellow, both are for dinner parties or casual events.

Recently there is Shanghai international film festival, it is playing many famous movies. This event would happen every year in summer, is a little different because every year during this festival include actors and movie reporters/directors. They are meeting in Shanghai, includes famous international actors because of the virus, there are only a few people in Shanghai. Last weekend I went to cinema to watch. movie.

I like stories or biographies. I want to buy a book called becoming. Its a book by Michelle Obama, I will buy it. Education is also an English book. It seems like it talk about, a woman who is very poor when she is young, she is a success now. The story tells how to get success. For me I want to find some way, when she meets a problem, how she can solve it .
