October 21, 2009
I went to the IMC center at lunch hour yesterday. I saw people queuing for the free hot drinks. Actually, when I first heard about the free drinks in WMG, I appreciated a lot. Since the weather is cold in the UK, it's a good idea for the students to have hot drinks after they arrive at school.
I remember I saw a kettle in the center in the first week. But it disappeared when I went there the next time. Sometimes, I just think that what we need is a cup of hot water. I wish we can have the kettle back.
One important thing I have noticed is that, students love to put the free hot drinks in the empty white cups. This is because it is too hot to hold the cups with their hands. I just hate to see this! This act produces lots of wasted plastic cups. This is definitely not good to our environment! At the beginning, I thought it is the practice of the people here because I am new to this place and do not understand what people think about environmental protection here. I just thought that they do not realise the Earth is actually in risk because they have this very beautiful natual environment here, which is unlike that in Hong Kong. However, when we have the class on monday, I heard Paul say he would like to reuse the exercise sheet. Then, I found people here actually realise the concept of environmental protection. So...
Please, be good to our Earth and don't use the white cups to hold your hot drinks next time!
