Preparation for Severe Winter

It is getting cooler recently, sometimes even less than 70°F (equal to 20°C) in the early morning. It's really hard to imagine how it could happen in summer, especially for us, who is used to the extremely hot summer in Taiwan.

最近天氣開始轉涼了,有時候早上出門大概只有攝氏20度左右,其實還真的有點不適應,不是才九月初嗎...現在的台灣應該還很熱吧!!!!

Considering the coming severe winter, we bought some winter clothes and snow shoes last weekend. Since it is a big clearance for last winter, how could us let such a great shopping chance go? Haha...

想想隨即而來的凜烈冬天,趁著週末到REI添購保暖衣物和鞋襪,適逢去年過季商品清倉,當然不能錯過大採購的好機會囉~(並不想等到11月底感恩節折扣才買冬衣,那樣因該會凍壞吧......p.s 據某位去年在此過冬的印度同學說,冬天的感覺,就是把你丟進冷凍冰櫃裡之後...再冷一點就是了)


My Northface Jacket: Original price $59.95, Sale for $44.93. What I am most proud of is...haha, this is Youth/Girl's size. Same style for Adult/Women's Size will cost $20 more.

我的Northface絨毛夾克: 原價$59.95, 折扣價$44.93。哈...這件其實是美國14,15歲青少年的尺寸,不過大小剛剛好,成人一樣款式的夾克就要貴$20,當然選便宜的囉~~


Kambric's Northface Jacket: Sale Price $69.93 (It's Adult/Men Size)

Kambric的Northface絨毛夾克: 折扣價$69.93



Timberland Women's Snow Shoes: Original $90 Sale for $14.91

我的Timberland雪鞋: 原價$90,折扣價$14.91


Montrail Women's Hiking Boots: Gore-Tex and Vibram, Original $119.9 Sale for $34.93

我的登山健行鞋:Gore-Tex加上黃金鞋底,原價$119.9,折扣價$34.93

After finishing our shopping trip, we invited two classmates to come our appartment for Chinese Dinner. Well, it is indeed our first time formally showing our cooking skill to other international students. Of course, the main purpose for the gathering is to discuss our Statistic Homework. We are hard-studying students!

結束大採購之旅後,當天晚上我們邀請了班上同學來聚餐--試試我們的中華口味料理,嗯...因為庫存食材有限,只能邀請兩位...當然,聚餐更重要的目的是,吃完飯後要一起討論統計作業...


The girl next to me is Varisa, who comes from Thailand; the other is Won from south Korea.

在我旁邊的是來自泰國的Varisa,另一位則是來自南韓的Won


Ha...that's it, our main dishes. We have: fried beef with chinese broccoli, grilled chincken, tea-leaf eggs, boiled lettuce with oyster sauce, and the last one, sour-spicy soup.

哈哈,這就是Kambric精心準備的晚餐真面目,嗯...有芥藍炒牛肉, 烤雞,蠔油西生菜,茶葉蛋,還有酸辣湯...嗯,食材有限,時間也有限,第一次展現廚藝的成績是很不錯的了,哈哈...至少同學是笑容滿面地吃完的~


P.S Considering more reader with different languages, I tried to finished it bilingually.

P.S 考量越來越多不同語言的讀者,我試著以雙語方式完成這篇紀錄.....不過打起來還真的很累....
