You’re so busy every day that you don’t pay much attention to your health. I’m worried about your health all the time. I’d like to give you some suggestions. I hear walking is the best sport. Your company isn’t far from home, is it? Why not walk to the office? You’d better take exercise at least once a week, such as playing tennis in the gym. Going to swim is also a nice choice, too. What’s more, it’s necessary to have healthy food. Try not to stay up too late. Having enough sleep can help your brain work better.
Dad, please accept my advice. I really wish you healthy!
Your loving son (daughter)
During the Duanwu Festival, a glutinous rice pudding called zong zi is eaten to symbolize the rice offerings to Qu. Ingredients such as beans,lotus seeds(蓮子),chestnuts(栗子), pork fat and the golden yolk of a salted duck egg are often added to the glutinous rice. The pudding is then wrapped with bamboo leaves, bound with a kind of raffia and boiled in salt water for hours.
The dragon-boat races symbolize the many attempts to rescue and recover Qu's body. A typical dragon boat ranges from 50-100 feet in length, with a beam of about 5.5 feet, accommodating two paddlers seated side by side.
A wooden dragon head is attached at the bow, and a dragon tail at thestern(船尾). A banner hoisted on a pole is also fastened at the stern and the hull is decorated with red, green and blue scales edged in gold. In the center of the boat is a canopied shrine behind which the drummers,gong(銅鑼)beaters andcymbal(鐃鈸)players are seated to set the pace for the paddlers. There are also men positioned at the bow to set off firecrackers, toss rice into the water and pretend to be looking for Qu. All of the noise and pageantry creates an atmosphere of gaiety and excitement for the participants and spectators alike. The races are held among different clans, villages and organizations, and the winners are awarded medals, banners, jugs of wine and festive meals.

Boys and girls,
I’m the chairman of Student Union, Li Hua, and I have big news for you. To enrich our life on campus and improve our English, we, Student Union, set up an English club. Obviously, besides study, there are also other things beneficial to us. It is believed that the club can make our campus life colorful and rewarding. There goes the plan.
It is arranged that we will see English films in the auditorium on Tuesday evening. Apart from that, there is going to be an English debate or discussion on Saturday evening; yet, the specific topics haven’t been settled. If you have wonderful ideas and suggestions, please let us know.
I’ll highly appreciate it if you are actively involved in the club. You will never regret joining us. So, just do it.
