Happy Year of the Pig!

Image result for lunar new year pig


From ChineseNewYear.net:

Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite.

Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. They are a bit materialistic, but this is motivation for them to work hard. Being able to hold solid objects in their hands gives them security.

They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. They believe that only those people have the right to speak, and that’s what they want.

“Jinhee Is Coming to Class”

by Class W2


You better watch out

You better not be late

Better not pout

I’m telling you why

Jinhee is coming to class!


She’s making a list

And checking it twice

Gonna find out

Who was absent or not

Jinhee is coming to class!


She sees you when you’re speaking

She knows when you are on your phone

She knows if you’ve been bad or good

So speak English for goodness sake!


Oh, you better watch out

You better not WeChat

Better not text

I’m telling you why

Jinhee is coming to class!

Jinhee is coming to class!

The Queen in My Family

My mother is a queen in my family, because she has the supreme power in my house. Everybody must listen to her and follow her way. If you do not, you will be punished, including my father.

My mother is average weight and average height. My father is ten years older than her. When they stayed together the people all said, “Oh, your wife looks very young and beautiful!” When she heard that, she always said, “See! You are so lucky that you can get married with me!” We thought she was very narcissistic.

My mother is a talkative woman. Sometimes we felt she was very annoying. She always argued with my father. It was very funny to see them. My mother was taller than my father. When they argued, my mother always used her finger and pointed at my father’s head and my father looked like a kid who did something wrong. That was why he always lost.

But we still love her, because it was not easy to raise four children. Nobody helped her to take care of us. She was the first person who got up and she did all the housework every day. We knew she was very exhausted but she didn’t say anything.

Right now I am a mother, so I know how my mother felt. She is a great mother in my heart, and I hope my kids will love me as I love my mother.
