International night part 2

    This afternoon, it was another orientational activity- chancellor's reception in Krannert center for Performing Arts. Originally, I didn't want to go based on experience of activities I attended days before. However Krannert center is so famous, I thought it's worthy to check it out. After attending the hall, I felt disappointed, again. Reception is held without seats for students. So, everyone just stood listening to the speech for the whole time. ISSS prepared some cookies, cheese and drink. The cookies are so delicious. Not too tough, not too soft. Maybe a little bit too sweet. On the other hand, the cheese is so disgusting that I got to throw it away.
    After the boring speech, there was a short introduction of this center by staff. They tried to explain how great this center is. They said that Chicago Orchestra borrowed this center to record their CD album. In addition, Ma Yo Yo performed this year here. Wow....
    After that, it's time to meet new friends abroad. And I thought that's really awesome. I met a lot of students from Taiwan and China. The best of all, I had a great deal of conversation with students from Europe, Korean, Australia and Canadian. About 15 students went a coffee shop to continue talking. After that, we went to Green St. to have dinner in a grill restaurant. It's a kind of buffet that you put things like meat, vegetables and sauce into a bowl and then the chief will cooked that for you. So you gotta be good at choosing and mixing, or the meal will hardly be better than the one you cook at home. Obviously, I am bad at it. 
    conclusively, I felt great and so international tonight.

Hi, again! My name is Fred and I'm a grad student in U. of Arizona. FYI, it's far away from your school. Frankly, I like your blog very much. It's cool. Actually, I love Chinese culture. So can you introduce some cool things to me. I really appreciate. By the way, what's your name?

Hi, My chinese name would be pronounced like Wei-Ying. Or you can call me Isaac. I am glad that you felt cool about Chinese culture. I hope I can introduce some chinese things here. But, you know I just arrived at US and it's the thing happened in US that made me feel cool. Ha~
Anyway, welcome again and thanks for your feedback.
