English entries in early June

The Dragon Boat Festival is coming up.

Next Monday is the Dragon Boat Festival, so we’ll have a three-day vacation starting tomorrow.

The traditional food eaten during the Dragon Boat Festival is zongzi, normally made of sticky rice.

I learned how to make zongzi from my great-grandma when I was a kid, so I can make them myself.

Every time I make zongzi I remember my great-grandma and the generous love she had for me.

For most Chinese people, the purpose of the Dragon Boat Festival is to remember the famous ancient person Qu Yuan. For me, it’s also a time to remember my great-grandma. 继续阅读“English entries in early June”

One-Day Trip

I’m going on a one-day trip to Suzhou City tomorrow.

My train departs at around 9:30 and the train station is not far from my apartment, so I’ll sleep in tomorrow morning and head out at roughly 8:20. Then I can have around 40 minutes to check in at the station — That will be enough time even if the station is busy.

The distance from Shanghai to Suzhou is approx 85 km, so I will reach Suzhou Station in 25 minutes.

My return ticket is set for 19:50, but I would probably need 45 minutes to get to the train station, which means I need to finish everything before 18:30.

Have a nice weekend! 继续阅读“English Entries in late May”
