不对！ ;) It is possible to walk your turtle! I saw a woman walking her turtles in a park, already a few times (in Western district Hong Kong Island)! ;-)
Posted on: Renting an Apartment through an Agent 3September 24, 2010, 06:06 AM
Ha ha, fitting topic for me! ... I just rented an apartment through an agency here in Hong Kong. My 墙有点脏 too, but compared to the other 破 places I visited and the prices I heard I think I made a good deal. Love my new place! :-)

Just for the record...: It is not true...that 女孩子不喜欢 beards!!! I can think of at least 5 of my friends who definitely look so much better when they do NOT shave!!! :-)!! Maybe not ZZ Top style...but beards can be very 帅， 漂亮 and 辣 ：－）！！！！

白水她不喝。。。said my Chinese friend yesterday. (telling me that her baby refuses to drink pure water, only mixed with apple juice or tea...)
This is strange about the question 你好吗？... I remember that Jenny and Ken mention in several lessons that it is a typical beginner textbook sentence and not very common in China. But my former Chinese teacher (hometown somewhere close to Shanghai, about 40+ years old) and my language exchange partner (hometown Beijing, 35 years old) both use it. I also was asked so in restaurants in Zhada/Tibet owned by Sichuan Chinese mostly. It does not seem to be a regional thing (after my personal experience). I don't know where those different opinions from native Chinese come from (for example now: Jenny and crystal_c.) ... Any ideas anyone?
B.t.w: My language exchange partner also uses 马马虎虎， which is, as I learned from cpod lessons, a phrase that foreigners like but Chinese don't really use.
