  • 此則為私密回應
  • In the garden of life, friendships are the flowers.
    I would interpret it as:
    Life is like a garden and friendships are like flowers which need cultivating and attention to blossom and grow strong.
    To insinuate love relationships, I would say that:
    Life is like a garden and relationships are like flowers which need cultivating and attention to blossom and grow strong.

  • Hi Elisa, Happy Valentine's Day  How do you spend the day?and i'm just curious about your amazing english. I mean how do you write them so creative? any tips? would you mind leaking some to me?^^ I'm appreciate that^^
  • I am staying at home working my butt off this week because my husband is out of town on business trip.  It would be too time consuming commuting to work alone and to drop off and pick up my kids from the summer program/daycare.
    I don't keep track of Chinese Valentine's Day.  It is too remote to me.  I do remember the Valentine's Day in February though. 
    As for creative writing, thanks for your compliment.  I don't think that I am creative, but anyway, I think that if you read more, you will improve your writing.
    Trying to learn from how others write is a way to improve your writing.  When you read more, you may become more creative in coming up with new ideas.
