Usually, I am not that kind of person who can get along with others easily, that's why i sometimes keep quiet when meeting unfamilar friends. It's strange that , meeting NEW friends is totally not the case. I always have lots of thing to talk about with Fresh friends. But, after we move into the umfamilar zone (let me difine it as "Fresh 以上 好友未滿"), that's the most tough part for me...i am trying to figure out how come! ....perhaps it's just because i don't like the feeling of being 冷場....(it's really doesn't make sense though...why should i care about that..) Whenever we go across the line , i will somehow build up a kind of strong link with my friends, it could be very long lasting, really. I don't know it's good or not....but it's just my way of making friends.
The more i hang out with Cyril and Gerry , the more i can identify with them and appreciate what they have done for us. It's not only the nice Dutch meal they serve us,which includes green been soup..bread..cream and fruits...pancake..,but also becasue the every detail they are considering for us. Cyril always tries hard to introduce nice things about Netherlands, and take us to experience it as much as possible. He told us how to perpare for the cold winter, he informed us of the nice X'MAS markets around many places. He also recommended to pick up the falling leaves on the ground , and make a composition of the leaves in different colors, after dring it. Today, Gerry even landed us a nice hand-made tool for dring the leaves. For me,Cyril is a nice uncle who takes care of us very well, and Gerry is a super kind grandma who is full of energy and enjoys in stuffing us as much as she can ;-)with deserts, main dishes, chocolate, drinks, cheese..you name it....whenever she leaves for the kitchen, we know that Oops! we are going to eat more..It's pretty unbelievable that they treat us so nice out of a desire to share culture.I am considering doing the same thing after going back to Taiwan. But before that , I am going to think about how to return them for all the kindness.
