  • 礼物

    lǐwù - present

    This is one of the first nouns I learnt in Chinese. Today Victoria wrapped my present and immediately tried to get me to open it.

    他抱了礼物。
    She wrapped the present.

  • 野餐

    yěcān - picnic

    Today we went out for a picnic with some Flickr friends. Victoria and the more musical friends played guitar and ukulele. We thought we had brought some chilled white wine, but it turned out to be sherry. Didn't stop us from drinking it though.

    这是一个出外野餐的理想日子。
    It is an ideal day for a picnic.

  • 其他

    qítā - other

    Today we watched The Lives of Others, which I bought on DVD about two years ago on the recommendation of a friend. I've only just got around to watching it; it was very good. We also went out with friends for breakfast at Atomic Burgers, went to Go shop where Victoria bought a book on Joseki, went to a new old-style sweetshop and played a long game of Go. All in all, a good day.

    其他的生活。
    The Lives of Others
