1. My mum is learning English every day and translating every piece of my blog using online tools. In my last updated blog I mentioned the word of “shit” and “fart”, which are not totally healthy in my mum’s opinion. So the other day she made her suggestion to me like, “Hey son, it’s not that you are not allowed to write dirty words, but you should use them as less frequently as possible…”

3. We were hanging out in the kitchen and discussing about one restaurant. I told Amy and Zoey that that restaurant’s owner is well known to be kinda horny among Chinese students. Whenever some pretty girl customers came in, the owner would propose to take a look of the girls’ palm to predict their destiny.
Amy and Zoey were kinda surprised saying they were in that restaurant before but it never happened to them. I kidded them like, “Maybe because you guys are not pretty enough…”
4. I was trying to submit a paper with Guanqun as the co-author. After I sent the finished draft to him for his approval of submission, he kidded me like, “Huh, I think a number of experiments have to be done before the submission.” I kidded back like, “Well, since there is no way that we can do these experiments, we have to remove you from the author list…”
