a brief encounter in pantry
Hi all, please let me know if there are more natural expressions for the paragraphs below.
H is a Hong Konger working in an international company in Hong Kong. S has just joined the company from Spain. One day H and S met in the pantry of the office and H struck up a conversation with S.
H: How's work?
S: So far so good.
H: Is this the first time you have been to Hong Kong?
H: How long have you been in Hong Kong?
S: Around one month.
H: How do you like it here?
S: Good. It is a lovely city. I think it is like Barcelona without the antique buildings. (S is actually thinking: I don't really like this city. Everywhere is so crowded. The air quality is not good.)
H: It's great that you enjoyed your life here. What did you do during the last week end?
S: I took a short trip to Guangzhou, China.
H: Was that the first time you had been to Guangzhou?
S: Yes, actually this is the first time I have been to Asia.
[To be continued]
