Chinese Society Together

晚上6点多去参加了中国社团的迎新会。说实在的,在这里读本科的3年里都没有真正的去参加中国社团的活动。大学一年级参加过香港社团并且在春节大年夜去birmingham聚餐,这好像是我印象中唯一的一次社团活动吧...今年只是想说既然是新的开始,应该去认识一些新朋友吧...原来我们学校有那么那么多的中国学生,a huge Chinese population,也许有1000人?感觉上社团是比之前的成熟和有组织了,虽然组织人员全部都是新生,大一或者大二的居多,而且组织人员人数也差不多要20多人...说的上是学生会里屈指可数的巨大社团了吧!坐在一起的时候,突然有一种在国内大学里上课的感觉,不知道是好事还是坏事?

今天果然认识了一些新朋友,一开始找不到人说话幸好没有狠狠心走掉。WMG里认识了Parris, Carrie还有一些名字要慢慢去记了。新朋友好像反而比本科时的朋友来的亲切呢...可能和原来的同学一开始就没有建立好关系吧...总的说来,今天晚上挺开心的,希望在这一年时间里大家好好相处。

I went to the Chinese Society New Term Party this evening. In fact, I spent 3 years in Warwick and almost haven't taken part in any of the Chinese Society events. The only time I can remember is going to the Chinese New Year dinner party in Birmingham, which was organised by Hong Kong Society. So this year I think, well, postgraduate, it's a new start then. I really should know some new friends and be more sociable. I eventually know that there is a really huge Chinese population in Warwick currently. Maybe 1000? The Society itself is more organized and mature, thought most of the committee is in their 1st or 2nd year. Moreover, the number of people in the committee almost reaches 20, which means Chinese Society may be one of the largest societies in Wawick. When I was sitting among these people, I suddenly had this feeling that I was in a lecture room in China. Is this good news or bad news?

Just like what I expected, I met some new friends tonight. There were Parris, Carrie and of course some other people. I just need more time to remember their names. I feel that I am even closer to some of these new friends than to my old friends in undergraduate. Maybe from the very beginning of my university life, I just haven't built a healthy relationship with them. I had a lovely time tonight after all. I wish in the coming new academic year, I will mix in well and have a good time.

Big just got BIGGER

I received the Rowan knitting book "Big just got BIGGER" today. Rowan yarns are just sooooooooooo expensive that I have to ponder the expenses a lot before I can make a decision to make a scarf or so…

So finally I believe I will make a scarf and a hat, if and only if I've got the money.

The scarf:

The hat:

They are both made of Rowan Big Wool and require JUMBO needles to knit them. (which means I have few chance to find them on Ebay) There are pompoms on both of them, so I hope they will match with each other. Here are the expenses:

The scarf: Tricky x 2 + Smooch x 1=20.25 + 15mm needle=5.50
The hat: Smooch x 1=6.75 + 10mm needle=3.15 + 12mm needle=5.50
Postage: 3.50
Total: 44.65

See how expensive is that! Maybe I will wait till my birthday and try to convince my boyfriend to buy them for me…hoho!

BTW…I hope I can still use this blog after I graduate…

Mid-autumn festival


Happy Mid-autumn festival! 中秋节快乐!
I've got two small moon cakes remaining!
(Hehe..I am not complaining that I don't have enough moon cakes la! It surprises me that lots of people know about moon cake! cool!)

For anyone who don't know what this festival is about:
It is 15 of August today in Chinese calendar year and also the mid-day of autumn. The moon tonight is supposed to be quite big and round. In old times, the moon represents reunion, so today is the day when families get together. Another convention to celebrate mid-autumn festival is to eat moon cake, which also represents reunion, as its moon-liked shape.


Finally made an appointment

Follow-up to Wisdom tooth == Love tooth from TEss's Knitting Blog

I went to see dentist this morning and made an appointment on this Friday noon. So I think I will just continue to take antibotics and wait…
I've also registered with the university Health Centre, so I guess there is no problem with my NHS then…

Wisdom tooth == Love tooth

Writing about web page http://www.nhsdirect.nhs.uk/en.asp?TopicID=734&AreaID=4847&LinkID=3922

Do you know wisdom tooth can also be called love tooth, which means it erupts when you fall in love with someone for the first time. But it really hurts and not at all as cute as it sounds…I've been taking antibiotics for 2 days and the swelling hasn't been better...nor it has been worse...so hopefully it will stop swelling in next few days so that I can go to the dentist and get it removed. It's just so hard for me to chaw and swallow food now...

BTW..it's lovely to have some comments to my entries…I'm so happy to read them!

Wisdom tooth

Writing about web page http://www.umanitoba.ca/outreach/wisdomtooth/wteeth.htm

It starts after I arrived in the UK. The area around my lower left wisdom tooth becomes more and more swollen…I am planning to go to dental service next Monday or Tuesday after I've received the student id card.

I am totally confused with the NHS. Currently, I've got 2 NHS cards with 2 different NHS numbers on it and neither of them has the right address. I am also not sure if I have to register with the university health centre first to get a new NHS card or I should just call NHS to change my address.

Despite of all these confusions, I am ready to pay for my dental examination and hopefully can get a refund by claim. The thing I am worried about most is that if my face is going to swell so terribly that I won't have the courage to walk outside and face people…

画魂



《画魂》
有我喜欢的胡军,刘烨。拍得非常漂亮,台词也专业。很喜欢李嘉欣的这件绿色衣服。

Beautiful View in Heronbank!


今天去买菜,顺便在附近拍了一些照片。前几天在这里骑车,外面真的好漂亮啊~ 蓝天,白云,绿色的草地,几棵高低起伏的大树,连成一片的小房屋,好像每天都在旅行一样!
对了,还有很多的鸟,是不是大雁呢?或者是heron,中文是苍鹭,我不知道什么是苍鹭啊...

On my way to Tesco, we took some pics of the surrounding area in Heronbank. In last few days, when we were on our bikes, we found the really beautifual view — blue sky, white clouds, green grass, some big trees and a row of small houses. It's like be in vacation everyday!

Oh! These birds are called heron? I thought they were wide geese…

The Sims 2

Writing about web page http://www.gamespot.com/pc/strategy/thesims2/index.html?q=the+sims+2

The sims 2 模拟人生2 终于是上市了...店里面卖34镑99,好贵...
(Amazon原来卖27.99啊!便宜了好多!但是我还在考虑中...还是好贵啊..)
想在bt里面当,但是一直连不上...
在costcutter里面的杂志上看到非常有创意的sims2的广告,觉得鬼佬真的能作出很多中国人做不出来的东西...好厉害...

The Sims 2 is finaly on the market…It is sold as 34.99 pounds… really expensive…
(Amazon is currently selling it for 27.99! Great! Thanks to She Bevan~ But still very expensive for me…still considering…)
I wanted to download it from BT, but always couldn't get connected…
Just now in Costcutter, I found a really interesting and creative advertisement of The Sims 2 in one of their magazines. These foreign people really can do things which we couldn't do…superb..


过暑假的时候就看好了要买的书,还要再等几天...因为刚开学,post system可能还有一些混乱吧...现在对织围巾帽子之类的很感兴趣,觉得戴出去的机会比较多吧~

When I was in summer holiday, I already have planned to buy this knitting book, but I have to wait for a few days longer, coz the term just started, the post system maybe isn't quite normal yet. I am quite interested in knitting accessories, such as scarves and hats…Maybe I will get more opportunities to wear them..

先看了一下图片,作了以下打算:


这条织给震华 This one is for Isabel.


这条织给帆帆 This one is for Fanfan


这条给自己 This one is for myself

My Warwick Blog

我们学校新开发的功能,每个人都可以申请免费的学校blog了!
所以我也来玩一下!

国内的网站ftp超级难连上...我可能用这里来写日记也不一定...
最主要的我想把这里作为写关于织毛衣的blog..

A new (or not?) function developed by our university, everyone can apply for a personal blog for FREE~
So here I am!

It's really hard to connect to the ftp service of my Chinese homepage,
so maybe I will use this one to write diary and stuff..

Most importantly, I would like this blog to be a knitting blog.
I hope it can last…
