I have decided to self-teach myself the rest of Japanese Elementary 1-2 (I mean, since I have the textbook, and I only covered till Lesson 18 because of absenteeism :x)! As I was revising Lesson 15, I came across an answer I wrote and read out in class that made the teacher give me the “WTF why are do I have such a kok student?!” look. I can remember her half-exasperated, half-amused look like it was yesterday!! HAHAHAHA. I reproduce my answer with translations below.
It was a reading comprehension exercise, with a passage describing someone who lived in a cold country, liked to wear red, was single, only worked on Christmas Eve etc. We were supposed to guess who it was. (For those of you who have Minna no Nihongo, it’s Question 7 of Lesson 15.)
3) この 人の 名前は 知って いますか。(Do you know this person’s name?)
4) あなたも この 人に プレセントを もらいましたか。(Did you receive presents from this person too?)
答：いいえ、わたしはわるい子ですから。はは！ (No, because I’m a very bad girl. Haha!)
-Cue Sensei’s priceless WTF?! look-
In other news, Caits, FY, Linlin and I had our “Reunion Dinner” at Newton today! (As if we don’t reunite for the most trivial of reasons every other day. LOL.) It was quite awesome. We ordered crabs, stingray, mantou, fried rice, chicken wings and some super long chinese name veg. Ask FY what it is we ordered. I have no idea what that string of Chinese she babbled off was. HAHAHA.
Caits drank THREE coconuts and ONE watermelon juice. All by herself. She is the Champion 水桶。Or maybe 果汁桶 is more appropriate. Haha! Her juice drinking powers are damn awesome!
