Hello Richard, LindaMy Classmates




Hello, Richard, Linda and my classmates,


How are you? I saw your pictures on the Blog. It looks like everyone is healthy and happy. You know? I totally miss the class. Now, I have been working more days in San Francisco since I got back from Thailand. I went to Thailand because my brother got married. I took some pictures in Thailand to show you.

The first two photos are of one of my favorite places. It is named James Bond Island. This Island was in the James Bond movie "The Man With the Golden Gun".


The last photo is my family with our new sister-in-law.

Enjoyed Dim Sums



Last month, 30th, teacher Linda Newman and part of our new and old students had a lunch together in Happy Valley restaurant.

The day before that day, Linda introduced several kinds of Dim Sum in the class with pictures and texts, since some of our classmates had never eaten Chinese food. So we enjoyed eating Dim Sums and fry noodle.

We had a chance to communicate each other with English and other languages in the restaurant.

Jie’s Jokes

When I walked up to the ATM at the bank, I noticed that someone left his card in the slot in the money machine. I looked up the person in the phonebook and gave him a call.

“I found your ATM card,” I told the man who answered. He then asked hopefully, “You didn’t happen to find my sunglasses, too, did you?”
