Dear All,

I am Flora and it is indeed my pleasure to give you guys a warm and fun night.

Nowadays most people are always busy with their work regardless of their personal life. It seems a trend to work overtime in office and the home is seen as a hotel, a place for sleep. Even if it is a beautiful sunny weekend, they may prefer staying at home or just hanging around with some close friends to exploring the excitement by all means, not to mention the opportunity of meeting their soul mate. As a result, matchmaking agents have been mushrooming in these years, especially those on Internet. Do not just stick to your folly and do nothing. The first step might be critical for your own happiness. How would you introduce yourself attractively whether on a match.com or in front of people? How do you describe yourself in an impressive way? If you are always charismatic, I would sincerely invite you to share your opinion and idea with us. If you consider it difficult to attract others’attention to your self-introduction, it is even a must for you to learn some experience from others!


- Session One -
Please give us a brief self-introduction in about 2-3 minutes. I would suggest you to compose a script beforehand and apply some adjectives below in your speech. Be yourself instead of being too exaggerative. Everyone will have others’ feedback.

- Session Two -
Play a game. Warm up for the next session!

~Take a Break for 15 minutes~

- Session Three -
The last part is not that kind of necessary in a romantic relationship, but it does help heat up your feeling somehow. It is so-called Love Letter. You may use some descriptive words from last session or just express your affection into words. Try your best to make a touching letter and show your sincerity.

Memo from the Dept of Fundamental Sentimental
Ladies and gents...
it is never too late(or too early) to fine-tune this timeless art of self-promotion. But, isn't it almost unethtical to promote one'self too successfully? "Truth in advertising" does seem like an oxymoron...
The fire of marital crisis burns slowly but surely. The warning sign may seem small, far away and easy to ignore for now, but before you know it, it hits you right in the face and knock you senseless. Consider yourself warned.

今天 很感謝大家的熱情參與 雖然外面飄著小雨
雖然主持人自己也遲到 雖然時間延誤了很久 :oops:
Anyway, 看到大家認真的玩遊戲 寫情書 總算完美結束了8)

與會者:Austin, Ariel, Alex, Chris, Christine, Carrie, David Chen, David Liao, Jessica, Julian, Laura, Richard, Salina, Wei, Wayne
New comer: Allen, Iris, Maggie

另外 特別提供由Salina, Richard, Wei, David, Laura一起創作的Love Letter

My yummy darling,

In my heart, you are a sweet angel with innocent eyes standing at the rainbow to catch my soul. Everything you do completes my life. Every temptation and intimacy give me good memories forever. The most romantic moment in the world is to be with you. I desire giving you the most unbelievable dream. One day, you gave me a bundle of roses. It is so touching and adoring. Lover, your sweet smile seems like the sun rising from the ocean. I am so jealous of you because you own the most wonderful love, my Queen. When I get together with you, every day is a happy holiday.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

誠如Austin所言 有些時候 再多的形容詞也不足以表達個人形象
每個人散發出來的魅力 氣質 還是得靠自己多多培養
了解自己的特質 特性 接著加以擴大 便能成為獨特的個人
寫情書 當然也不是男性的特權了 更不需要正經八百 文情並茂
只要誠懇並用心 許多支末細微的瑣事 也能浪漫入文 更令人動容 :roll:

Additional vocabs:

Eccentric- same as "weird" but in a slightly more positive sense and less annoying.

Erratic- that which follows no predictable pattern and is the opposite of calm and serene. But not necessarily in a bad way. Some believe that one's mind is most creative in this state of uncertainty.

The bonus word of the day is...

"crock pot" = 悶燒鍋
(a descriptive word for emotional dimension not readily understood by native English speaker when applied out of context)

Also, the ultimate rhetorical question of the night is...

"Who do I have to sleep with to get into ASUS?" This is a good question to ask, if your interview with ASUS did not go as well as planned.

Just to go with the flow, here is a song lyric for this occasion.

The Rose

Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
and you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dyin'
that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long,
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose.
