Where do you want to live? It seems like a popular topic. The location of your house will play an important role in your life. You like huge library, first rank hospital, train station, exotic restaurant, post office, pizza place, delicious bakery, subway station, banks, universities, playground, coffee shop, movie theater, central park, stadiums, museums and all convenient public facilities. You just need to choose the best location that you really want to live and near all of these places.

Why don’t we go to the swimming pool? How about going to the museum? I bet that if you have to spend 2-3 hours to go to these places, you definitely decide to play a game of cards at home. The distance is a problem. Sometimes we will lose a lot of fun, because we could not keep enough patience and passion to go to these places. Supposing you want to go for a walk in the park in the weekend morning, but there is no any parks around your expensive house which located in the suburb areas, your life will be plain and boring.

Actually, there are several public transportation for people to choose. You can go by plane, boat, taxi, car, train, bus, subway and bike. Or maybe you can walk to work every day, if your apartment is near the company. 

Some people say that both of them have pros and cons. In fact, in modern city, compare with the fresh air and spacious house, I think the convenient transportation and facilities are more important. Also, you can save time to do morning exercises or arrive at your office earlier.

If you live in the city center, you don't need to drive your car, just take bus and subway, you can go to everywhere in the city. You don’t need to bear the terrible traffic jam. During the rush hour, it’s hard to find a parking lot. If somebody asks you the transportation routine, you can give clear guide. First, take the number 9 bus to the subway station. Get on subway Line 11. Get off at the second stop. Change to bus number 8 there. Get off at Green Street. You will find the art gallery. It’s near the park, on the corner of Royal Street and Queen Street. It takes about 40 minutes.

I want to live in a great neighborhood with convenient public facilities.

  • Eating dinner with appropriate manners 2017-4-25 22:24

    I don't think the rules you cite in the blog for attending dinners or parties are universally applicable in China. A bottle of wine as a gift sometimes would be welcomed with both arms. And a bouquet of flower, or a box of chocolate in some cases would look pretty weird.
    As for western dinners, there are various types of dining settings where levels of formality vary considerably. What you raise as the appropriate manner for dinner are exclusively for a fine dining occasion, and there are a lot of more casual dining environments, like buffet, barbecue, where foreigners may engage in rowdy, hilarious hi-jinks with abandon. They are not always as gentle and suave as they claim to be, and not every westerner is well-bred and well-educated and knows how to behave himself or herself.

    A pile of problems without resolutions sets a negative tone on your proposal!
