Austin – day nine & ten

*it’s all about food now.

day nine
– had some Mexican for lunch. I have been eating so much Mexican food that I belch Spanish now.
– cheecheongfun paid for my bill. And Dave’s bill. And Jason’s. Maybe he isn’t that bad after all, if for not for his bad breath and noisy eating habit.
– lab was moved to another building which is kinda old and dilapidated.
– left work at 5pm. Had an appointment at 7 for dinner with colleagues.
– dinner at Joe’s Crabshack. Had crab as big as a Malaysian sewer rat. Enjoyed myself there. Think gonna go there again for more crabs before I leave this Saturday.

day ten
– had an unbelievable lunch. 5 bucks… for an eternity supply of the best pizza I ever had. And that included some splendid tasting pasta, salad, choc fudge and lasagna that you can ever imagine. 5 fucking bucks.
– pizza was so good, that I completely did not notice how much noise did Cheecheongfun make when he was eating. A Mexican patron there did though.
– went for more shopping after work. Bought a lot of stuffs for friends and Emily. I’m officially broke.

Some mandarin that I’ve learned from Cheecheongfun

loong lungber – the number of a portion of space within a building or other structure, separated by walls or partitions from other parts. a.k.a. room number

mekloluh – a famous american fast food chain/restaurant that serves shitty food. a.k.a. McDonald’s

joong – a male given name. a.k.a John

poh se – the last name of current president of United States a.k.a Bush. (Keith swore that he actually heard it as “pussy”).

flung fly – thin strips of potato that have been deep-fried. a.k.a french fries.

sung – the star that is the central body of the solar system, around which the planets revolve and from which they receive light and heat. a.k.a sun.

few as it may seem but, this is my first step towards Chinese literary. I believe I can do it.
