【潔西家】照片寫日記 1 8/9 虎掌燒

 

去年的暑假去了迪士尼樂園,當時潔西的頭髮好長。現在的頭髮半短不長,自然捲又翹,吹了也沒用,只好對不起大家的眼睛啊。跟潔西家人一起拍照的三眼怪的英文大家知道是什麼嗎?就是 Aliens ,上日文課老師問說那是什麼,潔西查了一下,日文叫做「エイリアン」,所以三眼怪的日文跟英文其實都是外星人的意思。

【潔西家】照片寫日記 1 8:9 虎掌燒

 

 

每次跟大家說可以試著寫寫英文日記,大家對於英文日記的回應通常是說跟本不知道要寫什麼,每天生活都差不多,沒有什麼好寫的。那就拿張照片來寫吧!英文的五個 W 跟一個 H,光回答就可以說很多廢話了喔!今天沒有出去玩?那就拿從前有出去玩的照片來說。

潔西今天說的是虎掌燒的照片,因為小寶先前有跟潔西說想吃,今天去環球百貨公司的時候剛好看到,就拍了張照給她看,下次可以一起吃。今天唯一拍的一張照片,就拿來用了。大家有興趣的話可以看看潔西今天發了什麼廢文,就不翻譯了,太廢了,覺得沒有翻譯的必要性,哈哈。影片有講解就是了。

姿勢很重要耶!潔西前陣子腰痛,當然是因為姿勢不正確,這兩天特別注意自己的姿勢,儘量不要用感覺很舒服但是很不正確的姿勢坐著或站著,才練習了兩天就有明顯改進呢!習慣很重要啊!養成良好的習慣不容易,但是真的是有益身心健康。

今天上課講的說話的重要性,學生說覺得工作太簡單了 It’s too easy for me. 潔西提醒了一下,這樣聽起來給人的感受會有點自大。同樣的說 It’s not challenging. 沒有挑戰性,聽起來是同樣的意思,但是感受不同。言者可能無意,但聽起來很容易被誤解的話就最好不要說。

做人就是這麼辛苦,人家不想聽到的話,沒有必要的話也不要說。潔西的主管跟潔西說過,在別人買了衣服前,問你說好不好看,假如你覺得不好看,可以直說。但是呢假如別人已經買了衣服,問你說好不好看,即便你覺得不好看,還是不要直說。誠實不是永遠最好的策略。英文說 Honesty is the best policy. 誠實為上策。潔西不這麼認為,潔西從前是買前買後都會直說不好看,慢慢地年紀大了,就學到主管所說的話的真諦,不說謊話,但是也不一定永遠說實話。有些人覺得我就是你的好朋友所以我才跟你說一些不中聽的話,但是假如這些事無關緊要的個人觀點,說出來會令人不愉快,還是考慮一下。

今天去很熱的圖書館借了兩本小說,喜歡看日本推理小說,歐美推理小說都好厚,目前心情沒有悠哉到可以看那樣的長篇小說。晚上去很熱的麵店吃了麵,沒吃完,實在太熱了。節能減碳不是不能理解,但是開了冷氣還是熱到讓人待不住的圖書館跟麵店,覺得在裡面工作的人也是很可憐啊!

英文廢文沒寫夠又寫了中文廢文,我的日文廢文呢?睡前用日文想想今天發生的事吧!今天很自然地把日文跟英文混用,日文沒用都快忘花了啊,雖然每天還是盡量看一點日文新聞。比方說最近山P,腦海是日文,翻譯一下中文是山下智久的新聞,強迫自己不要看中文的看日文的,反正都是八卦,不重要,大概知道就好了。下午睡了午覺,現在居然又想睡了,才十點,就睡覺去吧,晚安!

潔西用 What, Where, When, Why, Who, How 寫的照片日記。照片因為是別人商店所以就沒拿來當作封面照。

Where

1 This picture was taken in Global Mall, Chungho.

 

When

2 I took it this afternoon.

 

Who

3 I went to Global Mall by myself.

 

Why

4 I did not plan to go there, but the people who sat next to me on the bus talked loudly. I really could not stand it, so I got off the bus. It happened to be the stop that was close to Global Mall. Therefore, I just went inside. My niece mentioned to me that she wanted to eat the “tiger’s paw-shaped cake” earlier, and the stand is there only for weekends. I sent her the picture and told her that we could try it together next time.  The ice cream looked yummy, but it is expensive. I said to myself, “You need to lose weight. Forget about it.” And then I walked away.

 

What

5 I just went window shopping. I did not find anything that was interesting or worth buying.

Because it was crowded, I did not stay for long.

 

How much, how often, how long, how far

6 Global Mall is only 15 minutes away from my apartment, but it was two in the afternoon, so I took a bus home. I like Global Mall, but I do not like to go there on weekends because it is too crowded.

【潔西家】no-brainer 的中文意思

no-brainer 的中文跟爽片的英文可以怎麼說呢?請看影片或下面的翻譯解說

Good day! 日安!一般縮寫 G’day! 這潔西老實講,真的是在澳洲的時候常聽到,但是其他國家的人潔西沒遇過會說 Good day! 的,當然日文的こんにちは (kon nichi wa) 是大家很常聽得了,早上開始要錄影片寫文,寫一寫都中文了啊!

真的是餓死潔西了。Jessie is starving! 用 hungry 飢餓的完全不足以形容,一定要用誇張的 starving ,原意真的是說沒飯吃餓死的非洲難民那樣子的,引申成超級餓的意思。

昨天是誇張忙碌的一天,早上出門去到小七吃一個喜歡吃的CoCo一番屋的咖哩雞排飯糰後認真的上課,下課後中午吃了不錯吃,辣醬超好吃的排骨炒飯後到公園看了一下 SMAP 的影片後去上下午的課。非常歡樂的課,下課後有點不好意思因為覺得自己實在笑太大聲了。

上完課跟去象山爬山的同學會合吃了晚餐,在市府站統一地下樓,餐廳名稱只記得是叫做 Yamaya ,剛剛查了一下,人家叫做博多天麩羅 山海,因為一點多才吃了排骨炒飯,下午又吃了一大塊好吃的起士麵包跟一大杯仙草,所以五點多沒有很餓,只把好吃的天婦羅通通吃光光,飯幾乎沒動到,潔西最後連一顆蛋都花了大概十分鐘才吃完,因為真的吃不下了,然後呢跟同學聊天後晃了一下,覺得已經累到背超痛的了。

回到家後倒了開水,做一下影片開頭,結果有點遲到了,不好意思,說好的九點直播到九點十幾才開始吧,用無線耳機回音居然超大的,又換耳機,弄一弄,講完翻譯應該是十點多嗎?肚子突然超餓,但是又超累超想睡,所以呢就吃了兩塊爆米花就上床睡覺。

早上起來超級宇宙無敵餓的,九點多就想吃蛋白質,又懶得出門,一直摸摸摸,後來決定午餐要吃叉燒飯的時候是十點多,但是便當店沒有那麼早開,所以就做影片止餓,也不是不能吃別的東西,但是有想吃的東西的時候就會想要餓著等吃那個目前很想吃的東西相信也是蠻多人都應該可以明白的道理吧。結果摸太久了,快餓死自己了,啊,我要出門買便當吃了。

祝大家一個星期的開始一切平安順利健康。Have a wonderful week!

【潔西家】涼麵與味增貢丸湯 Cold Noodles & Miso Soup with Pork Balls

上課前寫的短文有點小錯誤有改了,睡前路個中文講解在這裡,只想錄三到五分鐘,結果講了九分,刪掉再錄,還是九分多,放棄,可以當背景音樂聽,主要是想跟同學說怎麼樣寫日記,看圖說故事,不要用逗號分開句子,過去簡單過去進行的用法,簡單的形容詞子句,名詞子句,用英文句型去表達中文的概念
超想睡的,就不多說了,其實想說的超多的啊,但是累了,這星期幾乎每天都很忙,改天再聊了。

 

 

Cold Noodles & Miso Soup with Pork Balls

cucumber, sesame sauce, spicy oil, tofu, spring onion/green onion/scallion

I went to my high school class reunion the night before. We had a great time, so when one of my classmates invited me to stay over in her place, I said yes without hesitation.

Well, I underestimated my insomnia. We chatted until 3 in the morning, and decided it was time to go to bed. However, I didn’t get any sleep. I was lying there thinking about all the things that happened in my life lately, decisions I had to make, and this and that.

Anyway, at 6 a.m. I decided it was a better idea to go home instead of lying there. My friend’s place wasn’t too far away from my apartment. While I was wondering if I should take a taxi or take a long walk, I saw UBikes.

So there I was, riding a UBike early in the morning. While I was riding, I truly understood what the word rugged meant. The pavements were terrible. I had to ride very carefully so that I wouldn’t fall. It was exhausting. Therefore, I was very happy when I arrived at the UBike stop near my apartment. Even though I wasn’t hungry at all, I decided that I deserved a nice breakfast.

I’m on my way to class, almost there. It isn’t cold today, but the rain is really annoying. Stay dry and have a good day!
