1. How often do you buy others gifts?
I always buy gifts for my friends on special days, such as certain holidays and birthdays These special days are usually distributed among different months, so it is hard to answer this question. Normally, I will buy more than 20 gifts in a year for my friends.
2. Do you like to send others expensive gifts?
No, I never send my friends something expensive as a gift. Maybe expensive gift in somebody’s eyes better expresses your love and care towards her, but it also brings about a lot of pressure on your friends for receiving it. In my opinion, the simple but heartily elected gifts are enough.
3. What kind of gifts are popular in your country?
It depends on the age and gender of people giving and receiving gifts. For example, women over 25 might choose cosmetics for their female friends and belts or wine for male friends. People in 40s or 50s generally receive health care products as gifts. Customs in certain areas will also affect the gifts people choose.
4. Why do people send gifts?
Sending gifts is a social tradition for people to enhance relationships with others. When people give someone gifts, it means that they take this relationship seriously and have never left the receivers behind their mind. Also, the young send gifts to the old to show their respect and care about the life and body of the old.

Today, I’m going to share with you a place I often go visit with my friends. It is a small café near my home named ‘ABC’.
Though it is just five-minute walk to my home, it was actually my friend Lily who took me there for the first time. I remember that day, when the two of us were both worn out after a tiring day of school, Lily suggested we took some time off to relax ourselves. And, that’s why we ended up in that small café.
As a full-time student, I have to go to school 5 days a week. Therefore, the time left for me to visit this lovely place and spend some leisure time with my friends is mostly weekends. Fact is, my friends and I have made it a habit to visit this small café every Saturday night, and we usually go there by bike.
This small coffee house is located on a quiet street with a lot of trees planted on both sides. It also has a patio with hanging gardens which I like very much. Every time I sit reading there, it somehow makes me feel that I’m sitting in a tranquil paradise of my own. Separated from the hustle and bustle of city life, this small café allows me to ponder quietly, taking some precious time off to relax myself after a week of hard work. Here, I can concentrate on doing a personal project to writing diaries without being interrupted by other people.
Except for its peaceful environment, this café also serves great coffee and cakes. The employees working there are all very nice, showing appropriate waiting manners. In fact, I have already made friends with a lot of them, given the fact that I am no strange face to their shop.
As I said, I go there a lot with my friends. Over a nice cup of coffee, we get to share our little stories with nice scent around. At moments like that, we can escape from reality for a little while and enjoy ourselves.
