My Camera


On November 25, in the morning at 6:00, I began my busy day with friends. My friend Xu got to my house with his new second hand car. He was going to drive us to Best Buy. We knew that we must hurry up. As expected, we found many people were already shopping inside. We rushed into Best Buy immediately. I planned to buy a SONY Cyber-shot camera. It has 7.2 Mega pixels. I thought it was the best one I had seen. It cost $369.99, but if I could buy one today, I would get a 40 dollar rebate! I lined up behind 20 other shoppers. I knew it would cost me a lot of time, but I didn't care. After one and a half hours, I got my turn. The sales clerk told me that they had the last Sony camera for me. God bless me! I was so luckly!

My Brand New Car

Last week, my husband bought me a brand new car. It's a B M W car. It's silver color.

I love the B M W car's color very much, because it's a popular color. Now, I have to be very careful for using this car. I told my children to keep this car very clean, because they liked to eat junk food in my old car. Sometimes, they dropped chip crumbs. This caused a smell in the car.

My husband wanted to buy me a car few years ago, but I said: "Wait, don't buy it yet. It's not the right time to have it." A few weeks ago, his car broke down. We had people fix. It was expensive, so he decided to buy this B M W car.

He wanted to buy this car for me to drive, but I didn't think I needed it, because my work is close. I only drive to pick up and drop off my kids at school. I'd better let my husband drive the new car, because he works in Freemont. It's a long way.

He said, next week, he will return the car to me to drive. I am a little bit worried, because in Oakland it isn't very safe. If somebody scratches my car, I will feel bad, because I love it very much. I don't want to see any scratches on my brand new car.

This is the first time in my life I have a brand new car. I have to keep it very nice all the time.

Friday after Thanksgiving Day

On Friday, I was the driver for my kids, because they wanted to go shopping. They felt bored to stay home on a holiday. They wanted to look the crownds of shoppers on the day after Thanksgiving.

In fact, we went shopping just to take a look more than to buy, because we already have enough of everything. We only buy if something is very inexpensive and looks nice, because we are frugal shoppers.

We went to the New Park mall to take a look. It was crowned! Every store was full of people to getting into long lines. It's lucky for us. We didn't find anything that we liked. We would have to spent a lot of time in line.

It is not long before, we left to go to the South Land mall. We stopped at an In & Out Burger. We had our lunch there. It was full of people. We couldn't find the seats. Finally, we found one seat. The food came. Two of us had to stand to eat. Although we were standing to eat, we enjoyed it very much.

Soon after, we get to the South Land mall. It was a little bit hard to find a space for parking. We went round and round for a few blocks and finally we got a parking space.

South Land was just like New Park mall. We went around and took a look. It was crownded also, but no one wanted to take a picture with the Santa at the picture place. It was, maybe, still too early.

Eventually, we bought a few things and then we went home.

We enjoyed shopping on the day after Thanksgiving, because it had a different atmosphere than other days.

Ceramic Chickens

I had a couple of ceramic chickens. On Wednesday, I gave to my teacher one of the chickens. So I still have one left at home.

A few days ago. When I was eating dinner, I saw the chickens in front of me. It was so cute. Suddently, I thought I had to give to my teacher one of these chickens on Thanksgiving day to made him smile. I picked a nice one to give to him. I didn't know if it was a boy or a girl chicken.

My daughter complained to me. She said: "Mom, you should not have separated the chickens. They were a pair. They needed to be together. They will miss each other." She made me laugh a lot. Then she said again: "You should give your teacher a pair of chickens".

Then, later, my son came out from his room. Joanna told him: "Mom gave her teacher one of your chickens". He said: "Never mind, she can give me $5 dollars."

Thanksgiving Day

Today, my family and I went to San Jose to eat Vietnamese food. We are rarely have a chance to go out together, because most holidays my husband has to go to work, except for the big holidays like Christmast or Thanksgiving Day.

We like to enjoy food in San Jose, because it is very good. We enjoy driving in the car for a long distance from Oakland to San Jose. Especialy, I am lazy. I don't like to be the driver. Sometimes, it can't be helped. So I have to drive.

After we ate, we drove around to take a look and we bought some food that we like.

My children are happy when they go out with their parents. They like holiday atmosphere very much, so that, if there is a chance like today, I never miss it.

After we got home, my daughter said "Tonight we have no food for Thanksgiving." I had to cook a cury meal to symbolize our the Thanksgiving holiday.

Anyway, my family had a very nice Thanksgiving holiday. We enjoyed the food and being together very much.

Happy Thanksgiving to Classmates!

Happy Thanksgiving to classmates!
Enjoy your long weekend!

The Greatest Gift to My Teacher

It was supposed to write this letter on Thanksgiving day, but we have no school.

If today is Thanksgiving day. I don't know what gift to give to my teacher to make him feel happy, because he is a "teacher." The only thing he needed just write something very nice to him.

I'd like to say "thanks" very. . .very much to my teacher. He is the one who gives me the resource in English. However, it's not a lot , but it enough for me to feel confident to socialize at my job. I really like it with what he has helped me, because this is only right thing for me.

I'd like to appreciate to my teacher again for the organization of the blogger; to let me have a opportunity to develop my writing and speaking skill.

I feel very lucky a student under his teaching, because he has given me many chances to improve in my studies.

I'll never foget my teacher for the enthusiasm he has given me as student.

Your student

Cam Hong

Happy Thanksgiving!

Customer from Chicago

Today, I have a customer. She came back from Chicago. She is Vietnamese. She is my old client. She came to my shop to get a hair cut.

She told me, the reason she come back to me was because I'm sweet and she like the way I'm talking to her. She said she knew my husband. Her father bought a car from my husband. They both talked to each other and told her father I'm the one cut her hair. She complemented about me to her dad. Her dad said, my husband is a handsome and honest man. He like him

She said her dad rarely to complements people, but he complemented my husband. She said: It's very rare to see a couple like me and my husband.

My Customer

Jay is my customer for six years already. When I had grandopening my shop. He is the most of my new customers. So that, he and me the relationship almost close untill now.

Jay is Indian. He is a big and tall man. He likes talking. Sometimes, he comes to get a hair cut and dyes his hair. He takes advantage for color his hair and then he talks a lot. I'm just the one hear more than I talk, because I can't talk much, but he didn't feel bored with I'm very quiet.

Now, he moves to Freemont, but he still comes to my shop to get a hair cut and color. Sometimes, he passes by and horns to let me look out andwaves hand with him.

Jay has the same with my age. He likes to say: If he going out with me, people think he is my father, because he is too big and I'm so tiny.

My Hats

I have read the essays from Kaiyan. It have written about my umbrella. It has made me remember about my teenager's time.

When I was a teenager. Most of the time, I had forgotten a few hats in my class room. Everyday I come to class andput my hat in the drawer and then my backpack next. untill I get out from school. I had forgotten about my hat. It happened a few times a year.

Therefore, I had always have a new hat to wear. My mom had always said I spent too much of her money on hats.

Misunderstood

I have one Mexican's customer. Sometimes, he come for hair cut. So I can't remember his style how does it cut. I asked him: "How do you like to cut." He said: You don't remember me? I answered: I remember you, but I don't remember your hair cut.

Sometimes, on my job, it make me laugh and feel funny, because the customers and me misunderstood each other. It looks like duck and chicken talking together.

Good Dinner

I'm used to cooking good dinner for my family, because they are little bit picky on eating. So that, I have to pick and choose the food that they like it for every dinner.

Everyday, after dinner, I have to prepare food for tomorrow. If not, I don't enough time to have done for the dinners. My time is very tight. So that, I can't cook a very good meal for my family. Except my day off.

My daughter, after Chinese shool. She come home, she like to say: "We study hard, but come home, we have good food to eat. My children, when they are hungry. They like to come in the kitchen look what food do I cook. If they like it. They want to eat as quikly as possible.

Most my family are count on me. Therefore, I have to keep good in shape myself. I have to keep my physical heathy. If not, a lot of thing are waiting for me everyday.

In America, most wives' life are harder than husbands, because they are always the care giver of the family. They have so much chores to do. Beside of making money. After work, they have to take care of children, cook and clean up the house. Oh no! It's so hard life for the women in America.

I thought the women in America is on the top, because there is a phrase "Ladies first". In fact, it is not true. Ladies are at the bottom. They work so much and so hard.

Women are not an Eden in America!

Oakland Chinatown Restaurants

Here is a restaurant in Oakland's Chinatown:

The Silver Dragon restaurant is on the corner of Webter & 9 st in Chinatown.

Busy Days


This week is the busiest one in my life since I have born.

I wanted to apply EOPS(Extended Opportunity Programs & Services) Monday, I filled out a form of my personal information and took it to the Financial Aid Office. That's the first step for all the thing. The worker told me that I have to show my ID to proof I stay in CA for one year. Unfortunately, I got my ID for not enough one year. I was nervous. Suddenly, I remembered I got a certificate of attend in adult school, maybe it can help me.

On Tuesday, I left my adult school early and brought it to Laney. The certificate could work! I was so excited; however, I found the other problem: they had to make a copy of my Greencard. I didn't bring because I don't know that! I took a bus and went home immediately......I finished them before my writing class. After class, I took my EOPS form to the EOPS office with a friend, who also planed to do the same thing as me. God bless us, we saw 30 people outside the office, and the closed time would come after 20 minites......

Wednesday morning, I was absent, you know why......

Today, I thought everything was going well. But after school, my counselor gave me a phone: she made some mistakes in my files, she needs my help at 8:30 tomorrow. Sorry, classmates, I will be absent againt......

I didn't mention many details, I' m so tired. I booked a counselor to talk about my major in the affternoon next monday and a new Assessment Test next Tuesday......I absolutely sure I will take a long hibernate in the Thanksgiving holidays.

Have a good weekend, every one!!!

Enjoy!
Coffee from this country is also available in Decaf.

My First Post

My dear Teacher, Richard,

Recently, you advised me to write something in order to let you correct it. I really appreciate your kindness to the fullest.

I am proud to be your student. I realize that I have learned more than I expected and I have met many friendly classmates.

I admire how they continue to progress in their studies. On the other hand, it is not that easy for me to learn something new. Spelling is especially difficult for me. I have to look up many words in the dictionary because of my failing memory. It is a shame!

At the same time, I would like to take advantage of this opportunity to say "Hello" to everyone in our class.

Have a nice day!

Sincerely, your student,
King

My Teenager

I remember, when I was a teenager, I was always get high score for my essays. My teacher liked to call me up and read to the class. Sometimes, she tell me copy it nice and post my essays on the board. She was always give me good comments. I like to read it very much!

One day, I saw her bring a vase of paper flowers to put on her table. I really like it and then I asked: Who made it? She said: She did. I told her show me how to make it. She agreed. Then next week I came to her house with the flower paper that I bough. She showed me and we made it for a few flowers. Later on, she said: I just showed you only!

On summer time, some of my classmates and I liked to ride bicycle to visit our teacher. She lived in suburband. She moved from outside country. So that, she is lonely. She liked students visit her very much. One time, she kept us to having dinner.

I like to close to my teacher. Therefore, every summer time I like very much to let my teacher wrote me something on my book and then my classmates wrote me, next. I liked to keep this book like a souvenia.

Last three years, I've been back my country. Accidentally, I saw the book in a draw. I opened and read it. I saw a picture of classmates have taken with teacher together. I'd like to visit her very much, but I didn't know where is she now?

11.11 SINGLE'S DAY

In the USA, Nov. 11 is the day to remember the soldiers who died in World War I. But in China that’s the day for all single people.

The Chinese invented this modern festival by themselves. The four “1” make them think about being single. In China, when we say someone is single we mean that they do not have a boyfriend or a girlfriend.

Some one said 11.11 is a sad day for single people. A single person has no lover but still life continues. 11.11 is also a festival for young people. Some undergraduates think Single’s Day is not a sad day. It gives them a happy reason to relax .

In school, Single’s Day is very famous. Every 11.11 at 11pm , students knock pots, bowls, cups make a lot of noises and shout “Long live singles!” As students graduated from school, and moved into the world, they brought Single's Day with them.

In China Single’s Day’s lucky object is 4, “you tiao”+1 “bao zi”, put them together is “11.11”.

We already have Valentine’s Day, we also need Single’s Day.

Do you hear about Single's Day before? What do you think about it? Do you like it?

Seafood


I come from a Chinese family, and I love China very much. My hometown is GuangDong, TaiShan, a middling city beside the Pacific Ocean. Since I have been here, I realize that the most special thing to me about my hometown is fresh seafood absolutely.

Most of the fish is frozen in America, and the other is also not very fresh because they came here by air transportation. If you go to China, you will discover that the fish in supermarket is swimming in many sinks and is not keep in iceboxes. They still alive, include many kinds of fish from the deep ocean. The cookery of GuangDong is very famous in the world, you will feel pleasantly surprised because the seafood is much fresher than your imagination. It tastes very good and can takes you to a state of the fantasy. You mon't forget the flavor. Go to China is the best choice when you would like to have a beautiful recall.

My Country

Vietnam is small country, but it has many valueble mines as: gold, silver, petroleum and coal. Beside that, Vietnam still has a lot of good lands.

Apologizing to Our Teacher

Perhaps we misunderstood our teacher anyway, we made him angry. We felt regret and promised: "We'll never make our teacher get angry again!" We'd like to keep him smiling all the time. We don't want to see him get angry anymore, because when he gets angry, his face turns red and he looks like he may lose his hair.

Oh no! "We are sorry about that!" From now on, "Don't be angry! Be happy!" You'll look younger and heathier. We need your teaching very much! We're really afraid of you losing your hair and then we won't recognize our teacher!

I was too tired on the weekends

I am tired every weeked. I work every Saturday and Sunday from 8:15 to 5:00 pm. I feel very tired after my weekend of work.

My husband and I are teaching Chinese Kung Fu in my Kung Fu school. We take turns teaching students everyday and on the weekends, also. When he is teaching a class, I can relax, I can eat some food, drank some water and sometime type something.

I feel tired on the weekends, but I like my job. I like teaching my students. I really enjoy it. when my students perform or got medals in competitions.

My Classmate

My classmate, Mei, is from China. She is a beautiful and smart girl.

I really like to sit close to Mei, because she lets me copy her grammar excercises. When the teacher is in a hurry, I can't finish on time. I'm a slow student. I am scared the teacher will call on me, so I copy from Mei first, and then I go home and do it again.

I like talking with Mei, because she is so cute and very sweet. She likes me to hold her hand to let me warm it up when she gets cold. She looks like my little sister.

She likes to help me when I don't understand the meaning of the words.

Sometimes, I don't understand her because Chinese is not my native languge.

Every Friday she says, "I will meet you on the weekend." Although, the words are not true, she makes me feel good.

We had known each other for a very short time when we sat together, but I felt Mei and I had a special relationship. I like her very much!

I need her picture to post under this essay. Can any classmate help me do that. Thank you very much!

My Class

My class room is not very big, but it is full of students. My class is the advanced low level. Most students are very good. Just except me, I'm the slo. . . . . . .west student in the slass.

Sometimes, I feel sad about my slowness. I try my best to study every night. I read the story many times. I try to read it clearly, but I feel still have a Vietnamese accent. I don't like it. I want my reading to be perfect, because I practiced it many times already. I'd like to sound like a professional. Am I so greedy?

I read the grammar sheet for understanding. Then I practice reading each sentence. I want my reading to go moothly. Sometimes, I can't get the meaning right away, so, I have to take a long time for my reading. Sometimes, I don't have enought time to study.

I like my class, because the classmates are frendly. They are modest and help each other.

I like the atmosphere of this class, it makes me feel so comfortable. I hope this class can last longer and longer. . . . . . .

Lucky Cat


Do you want to be rich? Here I got a great idea that can help you. Have you ever heard the story about the lucky cat? even you don't know the detial about the story, but you should know this famous cat in the picture. This is a lucky cat, and whenever you be his master, he will bring you a lot of lucks. New year day is approaching, how about buy one home to decorate you home? This may bring you many many extra money in the year. Or that's mean you might be win the super lotto. No kidding, this may be true for you. But not me, I know that, Because I set a lucky cat in my home for a few years and he never bring me any extra money. Perhaps I need to buy another one, I guess only one is too lonely so he has no mind to help me. I want to give him a lover. Oh, s%*#!, I don't know my cat is a male or female. That is a big problem! ( How about buy him/her a rat, teacher told us the fat cat married the black rat.) Do you get a lucky cat at home, if yes, don't forget buy them a big and beautiful/handsome rat. They will very happy then will bring you lots of luck.

My Lovely Son

My son's name is Randy. He is twelve years old. He's kind of short and thin, but he looks cute.

Randy has been a well behaved son from the time he was a baby. He likes to play by himself and gives me time to do another things. He is a wonderful son.

Randy spends too much time on his games and T.V on the weekends. I don't like it, but I can't make him play less. I have to work on the weekends, so I leave my children at home. They both can do whatever they want.

Lately, Randy doesn't speaks Vietnamese with me. He has changed a lot. He doesn't care whether I understand English or not. He only talks English. Now he is making me learn English as quickly as possible.

Randy is twelve years old now, but he still crys when I yell at him. Sometimes I forece him to study Chinese for the test. He doesn't like it and then he cries.

I seldom bring my kids go shopping on the weekends. Sometimes, I feel I am not doing the best job as a parent because I don't spend enough time with my children.
