  • 01:27  Just finished watching the movie "Deconstructing Harry" directed by Woody Allen. It was really funny and I laughted a lot during the movie!

  • 01:31  Among Woody Allen's works, I like "Manhattan" the best, but I also like his recent works shot outside of

  • 01:34  Luckily my wireless Internet connection just got fixed. I will do my online shopping tomorrow. There are tons of books and DVDs to buy!

  • 10:08  'Morning! Woke up a short while ago. Started my day by surfing the Net with my iPhone. It's going to be another wonderful day today!

  • 11:40  Watched the Spanish movie "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" this morning. I've seen it a dozen times, but I still love it!

  • 12:57  Now that I've finished my sumptuous lunch, I need to get back to my French learning!

  • 14:37  Am taking a breather from my French learning now. I'm already halfway through today's portion. It's fun as usual!

  • 14:40  正在聽大陸歌手孫楠於幾年前所推出的『燃燒』專輯。他的歌喉確實不錯,我很喜歡!

  • 15:08  今日のフランス語の勉強がさっき無事に終わりました。これからネットで買物をします!

  • 18:06  ネットでのショッピングは完了です!商品を厳選していたので時間がかかりました!

  • 10:54  Morning! Woke up at 9:45, but stayed in bed until just now, surfing the Net using my iPhone.

  • 10:57  Will watch shortly the remainder of the movie "The 400 Blows". I have roughly 20 minutes remaining on this film.

  • 12:11  Am now at Arab Street, sitting at a French restaurant, waiting for the food to be served. This restaurant serves excellent food!

  • 12:48  I'm about to finish lunch. After I get back to my flat, I need to study some French as usual!

  • 12:55  Finished watching the movie "The 400 Blows" this morning.

  • 12:57  Now I want to see the movie "Stolen Kisses" by the same director.

  • 15:27  I've just finished learning French for the day. I'm really thrilled that my French is improving day by day!

  • 16:59  これから買物をします。と言っても、出かけるのではなくて、ネットでフランス語のイディオム関係の本を幾つか購入しようと思います!

  • 23:09  There's something wrong with the wireless network at my place and I can't get connected to the Internet with my PC. It sucks, big-time!

  • 23:12  Given that I can't surf the Net with my PC, I'll do some reading or watch a DVD to kill my time! Hope the problem will be fixed tomorrow!

  • 01:48  今夜はフランス語の勉強中に仲良しの友人から電話が入り、そのまま長電話をしてしまいました。今やっと勉強が終わったところです!でも友達とのお喋りって必要ですよね!

  • 10:48  我從3點鐘一直睡到了10點鐘,真舒服!現在正在一邊喝咖啡,一邊看『魯豫有約』。今天的嘉賓是電影『花木蘭』的導演跟幾位主演。我覺得趙薇很漂亮,很性感,人也特聰明。我也很驚訝地發現房祖名的國語講得超流利,真想知道他是在哪裡學會了這麼好的國語。

  • 10:56  真的,我一點也聽不出房祖名的廣東口音,聽上去跟臺灣的男孩子一模一樣。我也想重新好好學習普通話!

  • 12:42  又學了25條法語的成語,真是越學越過癮!

  • 14:39  僕は今、フランス語のイディオム辞典で良いのがないか調べています。例文が載っていてイディオムの使い方が分かりやすいのが必須です。

  • 14:53  とりあえずフランス語のイディオムは500項目マスターしたいです。1日25項目で、約3週間かかる計算です。イディオムができるとフランス語の理解度もグンとアップします!

  • 15:07  やっぱり僕は単純暗記が苦手なので、イディオムもスラングも例文を通して学びたいです。

  • 15:13  それにしてもフランス語のイディオムって、中国語の四字熟語ほど辞典類が充実していないので、良い辞典を探すのが結構大変です。

  • 15:35  それにしても、英語でもフランス語でも、普通の小説を自由に読みこなせるレベルに到達するのって、すごく大変なことですよね。僕のフランス語は、まだそのレベルには到達していません。

  • 18:55  今日は語学の勉強に関していろいろ考え事をしました。のちほどブログにまとめて発表します。

  • 08:06  大家早上好!我睡到7點15分自然醒,感覺很爽快!

  • 08:09  今天早上,我又看了一點杜魯福的『四百擊』。覺得這部電影挺好看!

  • 09:07  One of my best friends in Singapore might be migrating to Hong Kong soon. I'm saaaaaaaad...

  • 09:23  Could it be that if I twitter too much my iPhone batteries get used really fast? Maybe I need to recharge them more often!

  • 11:15  I make a point of drinking a cup of water at least twice during the day. Believe it helps me control my weight and prevent bad breath!

  • 14:22  My lunch break is finished. Took a little nap after lunch. Am feeling wonderful!

  • 21:09  Finished work for the day, finally! Tomorrow is a holiday, luckily!

  • 21:39  フランス映画『400 Blows』は、今朝から英語字幕に切り替えました。英語字幕は翻訳が上手で読んでいて快適です。香港産のDVDの中国語字幕は、「広東なまり」が強いことがあるので要注意です。

  • 11:59  By the way, this coming Friday is a public holiday in Singapore, so we have a long weekend coming up! I still don't know what I'm gonna do!

  • 20:07  終於回到了家,可以鬆一口氣!吃完晚飯之後,我還是會照常學法語!真是越學越有趣!

  • 21:32  剛剛看完了今天的『魯豫有約』。今天的嘉賓是演員余榮光。我覺得他的人生故事非常精彩!他所做的努力與敬業的態度,很令人欽佩!

  • 21:33  現在開始學習法語!

  • 23:27  フランス語の勉強は無事完了です!これからブログをアップデートして寝ることにします!

  • 07:06  Good morning! Had another good night's sleep and am feeling wonderful!

  • 07:42  今天早上我開始看了法國著名導演杜魯福的電影『四百擊』的DVD。這盤影碟是在香港製作的,所以它的中文字幕不免有一點"廣東腔",水準遠遠不如臺灣的中文字幕!我覺得中文字幕還是應該堅持使用標準國語!

  • 08:09  既然這樣,這盤硬碟還是乾脆改用英文字幕觀賞吧!

  • 10:29  One-minute break from work right now to do some stretching! By the way, I've got 9 followers of my tweets as of today.

  • 15:25  Am taking another 1-minute break, as I was getting a bit drowsy. Did some stretching as usual to refresh my mind, and am feeling better now!

  • 19:32  吃完了晚餐,現在是享用甜點跟咖啡的時間!真開心!

  • 20:31  勝間さんの『断る力』を読み終えました!この本は読みっぱなしにするのではなくて、得られた知識を実践に応用したいです!

  • 22:15  現在在一邊學法語,一邊聽蔡健雅的My Space專輯。超好聽,超舒服!

  • 22:39  我最近一直在學法語的成語。覺得非常有趣。我希望能夠學會上百、上千條的成語!

  • 22:50  今日の勉強は無事に完了しました!25個フランス語のイディオムが学べて、とても嬉しいです!

  • 14:48  『断る力』は半分まで読みました。これからまたフランス語の勉強に戻ります!

  • 14:51  Like the concept of "return maximization" put forth in Ms Katsuma's book!

  • 17:33  ただいまフランス語のイディオム勉強中です!現在ちょっと休憩中。イディオムは面白いです!

  • 17:34  As of now I have 8 followers of my tweets. Hope the number can increase in the coming weeks!

  • 17:43  今天下午看了鳳凰衛視關於中國跟阿爾巴尼亞兩國之間的經貿援助關係的紀錄片。內容非常有趣。我覺得鳳凰台製作的節目很有質量!我最愛看的節目是『魯豫有約』!

  • 17:46  For those of you who follow me, do you find it disruptive that I switch from language to language? Code-switching constantly occurs to me!
