My favorite weekend activity is shopping.
Sometimes, I just want some time alone, so I stay home, reading books or catching a few flicks.
go for a drive in the countryside
The most popular weekend activities in China are shopping, playing mahjong, singing Karaoke and playing on the computer.
I think weekends now are more interesting, cos there’s so much I can do, watching TV, shopping, doing sport, singing, you name it, whereas in my childhood, the only thing I did was just watching cartoons.
I think weekends in my childhood are more interesting, cos I was totally care-free, and I didn’t have much homework to do, so I could spend most of my time playing with other children. We liked to play some simply games like hide and seek, but they gave us enormous pleasure, now, we had more things to do on the weekend, but they don’t seem to have so much fun. And, as a student, I’m under the constant pressure from exams. I’m not really happy.
Music is magic.
Music is my passion.
download the latest tunes
an accomplished/excellent pianist
The music is great to dance to.
go to a concert
I’m a terrible singer. I always sing out of tune.
I love singing. It’s my favorite relaxation and stress killer.
I’ve got an ipod, which I take with me wherever I go, so I can have the company of music all the time.
Music is really important for me. I really cannot imagine my life without music.
Without music, my life would be so dull.
For me, music is just like a loyal friend, who is always there when you need him/her. He gives me comfort when I’m sad, gives me passion when I’m high, and gives me company when I’m lonely.
Actually, I’ve got no particular preference for music. I just listen to anything that’s pleasant to my ear. And in fact, what I listen to really depends on my mood. Say, when I’m in a bad mood, I usually choose something that’s slow and soothing, whereas when I’m in a good mood, I prefer something fast and strong and passionate.
traditional Chinese musical instrument, like Guzheng, which is a string instrument, something like zither. It’s got about 20 strings, I don’t know exactly how many, and you play it with both your hands, the left hand plucking the strings and the right hand touching the strings to control the pitch. It’s got a unique sound, very beautiful.
I used to learn the piano for a while when I was in primary school, and then I had to stop it because of the heavy study pressure.
They say playing instruments makes kids more intelligent, imaginative and creative.
Playing a musical instrument is a marvelous hobby that can continue for a lifetime, and also it’s highly desirable skill.
If you’re really good at playing an instrument, you can make a living out of it if you like.
And it’s a really useful social skill, like you can show it on a party to entertain your friends, and you will be star of the party.
And if you can play an instrument, you have a unique way of expressing your feelings. Like, you can play music to express your love to someone without actually say “I love you”. It’s special and romantic. And it always works wonders.
Learning to play a musical instrument takes time and energy, and lot of money as well.
I’m not very musical, so learning an instrument is really a tough job for me.
16. Reading and writing
sci-fi/kung fu fictions
fantasy novels, like Harry Porter
some on-line fantasy stuff
biographies/autobiographies of celebrities or successful CEOs or entrepreneurs, or politicians.
story books/picture books/fairy tales/fables/ancient poems
Books that teach you how to become more attractive, how to become successful and make big money, how to manage your money and invest your money, and books about celebrities, they’re always the best sellers.
I’m into historical stuff. I’m really curious about what happened in the past. It always fascinates me.
I don’t read much in my free time.
I just do some light stuff, like newspapers and magazines.
And I also read some interesting news and blogs on the Internet almost every day.
I’m in the habit of keeping a diary.
I’m never a good writer.
We had composition lessons at school, but they were just for exams.
I think good writers should first be an avid reader. If you don’t read extensively, it’s impossible for you to write something good.
