— You’re hungry, go in the kitchen, open the refrigerator, and see that the refrigerator is empty. What would you tell your room mate about dinner? What would your room mate tell you?

  1. Good morning.

    In my city, in the neighborhoods, the children play sports in the streets; they don’t stop if the covid-19 is in the place. They play basketball, softball, and soccer; all of them in different ages. The little children play in a team and the older play in other one. They have no problem with the sun, or the heat land; they play like the weather it is cool. We can see them playing every day of the week. They are happy doing that.

    Once of my hobbies is going for a walk in nature. I do it two or three times a week. Sometimes I go along and walk around my neighborhood; for one hour. But when I walk with friends I go to the park next to the lake, and walk for around two hours. I enjoy that moments early in the morning, greeting friends, drinking juices, knowing that the exercises are healthful.

    In my country people don’t go to the restaurants as frequency as American people do. My family enjoys eating at home with family members and friends that come over our home. But we go to restaurants once or twice a month. We enjoy different types of food; Chinese food, fried fish next to the lake, pizzas, ribs soup outside, and so on. Last weekend I prepared a barbecue at home; chicken and sausages, lettuce salad, and yucca and lots of soda. It was very delicious and there were 4 family members with us. Of course I drank some beers.

    Thanks a lot.

  2. Part 1: Sport
    In our country, Myanmar, one of the most popular sports is boat rowing competition. It is famous for rowing boats by legs in a small water village, Innlay (Nyaung Shwe). I would tell my guest from America about this sport because it is a rare sport on the world. This sport is not only our traditional but also a national sport. It is very famous throughout the country. As it is our national festival, it also shows our solidarity.

    Part 2 : Walk
    I would ask my partner to have a walk during the lunch time in the park at the back of our office. I would explain her the benefits of doing some kind of physical exercise. Sitting at one seat and giving concentration for a long time is not a good living style. Therefore, I would advise her to do walking exercise during her free time.

    Part 3 : Dinner
    In our country, eating out is very unusual. Families like to have dinner with all the family members at the home dining table. Likewise, if adults were at the hostel for their studying or job, they would prepare their meal and have the meal together. Eating out is very occasional in our tradition.

  4. Spending all of our free time sitting on the couch is not a good idea. This could be pernicious to our health. If we don’t use to workout, at least we should take a walk, even better if it’s a nature walk.
    In my case, some days during the week I take out my dog for a walk. It’s name is Kiko .

    Thanks for reading.
