I went to Kinokuniya Bookstore in Senayan, Jakarta yesterday. They sell books in Indonesian, English, Chinese, and Japanese. I was excited that I could browse their Chinese book collection now that I started learning Chinese. I was surprised that the Chinese books were about the same price as local books (and to think that they were imported…). There was even “Lee Honggi Nail Book” (“이홍기 네일북” ) in Chinese but I didn’t take a picture of it. I remember the Korean book was out-of-stock on YES24 Indonesia.
Imagine that. One day I will be able to read all these Chinese books. 😍😍😍 In 5-10 years?
And these are 2 books that came home with me: 我可以请你跳舞吗？Can I Dance with You? – ‘Chinese Breeze’ Graded Reader Series Level 1 (300 word) with mp3 CD, and a picture book for children 伊索寓言 [yīsuǒyùyán] (Aesop’s Fables) with VCD.
I want to start reading them right away but the HSK Level 1 preparation book I ordered from Korea has also arrived so I think I will finish it first. It has already been 2 weeks since I ordered it? Time flies!
So now I have 4 physical books and 3 e-books (Naver’s Chinese phrasebook app in Korean, Easy Chinese from Zero app in Japanese, and NHK Everyday Chinese in Japanese). 😍
OK, then, bye! 再见！###
