This week I’ve started evening Mandarin classes and I feel quite lost. I signed up for Level 2 because when I took the evaluation test, I scored enough to be in Level 2… but the students in the class seem to be much more advanced than me… it’s going to be tough but all I can say is that I’ll do my best. I have class Monday and Wednesday evenings for 2 1/2 hours so we’ll see how long I can last with working and taking classes.
Today I got to meet up with Joyce and we had dinner together at Holland V at Thai Express. It’s the first time we’d been there and the food was either really good or we were really hungry. We ordered pad thai and green curry. I liked the green curry because it was spicy but still a bit sweet. But I think my favorite part of the meal was my avocado shake, I love the creamy texture of the shake and the flavor of the avocado. It’s pretty hard to find avocados here and if you do find them, they’re quite expensive.
Since Joyce has been having a tough few weeks, we thought we’d better go have some decadent dessert. So I suggested Coffee Club for their mud pie.
She and I were very happy girls. She got her chocolate (she ate the whole piece by herself!) and I got my fruit tiramisu. My camera ran out of batteries so again I used my camera phone…
