People will get to escape the office from Thursday, June 25th through Saturday, June 27th for the Dragon Boat FestivalOf course, days off don’t come easy so everyone will be back to work for Sunday, but we’ll (grudgingly) take it.

25号周四到27号周天整整三天!

虽然周天要上班,还(能)是(怎)很(么)开(办)心。

Originating from Guangdong province more than 2000 years ago, dragon boat racing has become popular with groups around the world. Watching a race is quite an event! It’s exciting to hear the drum beats and cheer as the paddlers work in unison to propel the boats through the water. 

划龙舟起源于广东,已有2000多年历史。

鼓生响,呼声远,振奋人心。

What’s also exciting is getting a break from work for some well-earned rest and relaxation.

How will you spend the holiday?

You could head over to the park for a picnic or get cozy at home with a pizza and beer delivery movie night!

户外野餐还是在家躺着享受外卖?

好好休息一下咯!

Have a wonderful holiday!

端午安康!

Following months of self isolation and quarantines, some countries are slowly starting to relax the restrictions put in place to help control the coronavirus. As businesses prepare to reopen their doors, restaurants and brands are having to come up with some inventive ways of keeping people safe and socially distant while they’re re-embracing the outside world.

From giant sombreros to cuddly toy companions, here are some of the cleverest ways restaurants and brands are helping customers stay a safe distance from each other.

数月之后企业重新开业,一些大小品牌都采取了有趣的措施,让客人们保持安全距离的同时也能迎接美好生活。

Burger King, Germany

In order to keep customers safe while they chow down on a much-missed Whopper, some Burger King branches in Germany handed out social distancing hats fit for a…well, king. These giant sombrero like crowns aren’t the only way the burger brand has been helping people socially distance. Branches in Italy made Whoppers with three times the normal amount of onions, in the hope that onion breath would help keep people apart.

汉堡王汉堡王,有了帽子才是王。德国一些汉堡王分店提供这种像王冠的毡帽给客人,这样大家就能尽量避免接触。意大利一些分店则利用洋葱冲鼻的味道让人们保持距离。

Maison Saigon, Vietnam

This restaurant in Vietnam has thought up a way to give customers some cuddly, coronavirus-free companionship at dinner time. To make sure patrons stick to one table per person, toy pandas have occupied seats throughout the restaurant to remind people not to sit there, and to make the prospect of eating alone not quite so scary for some.

这家越南餐厅利用可爱的熊猫玩偶占座,这样就能保证一人一桌,避免过多的接触啦,也不至于让人一人食很无趣,还有小熊猫的陪伴。

Five Dock Dining, Australia

This Sydney restaurant has tried to recreate its busy atmosphere by dotting cardboard cutouts throughout the place. In addition, the restaurant also pumps out crowd noises from the in-built speaker system to recreate its usually lively vibe for the ten customers it’s currently allowed to serve at one time.

悉尼一家餐厅利用人型立牌制造热闹的氛围(?),还会播放繁忙嘈杂的声音假装富有烟火气,虽然同一时间餐厅只允许服务最多10位客人。

Forest Road Brewing Co. England

With Londers pining for the pub, one East London brewer took to the streets to bring people their pints. He’s been stocking up his van with beer kegs every day and delivering fresh pints to thirsty Londoners right outside their homes. Cheers to that.

伦敦人没有夜生活可不行!伦敦一家精酿店把囤积的酒在店门口随机送给口渴的人,我想我也需要来一口。

Not a business… but here’s a cat in cardboard cars

Like many people, Jen in the UK has been doing plenty of online shopping while cooped up at home. With so many spare cardboard boxes from these deliveries, rather than chuck them in the recycling, she decided to treat her cat to some cars. Here are a couple of photos of Jen’s cat in his new set of wheels – let’s assume he’s smiling on the inside.

和许多人一样,Jen在家隔离时在网上购置了很多东西。大量的快递纸箱给了她灵感,给自己的小猫制作了许多纸车,小猫满脸写着高兴。

You can’t live with them, you can’t live without them!

It’s time to celebrate the most beloved, innocent, funny, cute little people in our lives – happy children’s day!

今天是属于天真无忧小朋友的节日!

In case we didn’t already dedicate enough of our time to the little emperors and empresses, we have a whole day to spoil them. To remind us just how much joy children bring to our lives, check out these hilarious exam paper answers.

The answers are so wrong that they must be right!

考试或许是小朋友的噩梦,但对我们来说这太快乐了。考试精选,谁又能说答得不对呢!

In our opinion, it’s quite an accurate answer

child1

“描述苏格拉底和哲学的关系?”

“是爱情”

Well, they found it didn’t they?

x找到了啊,不是吗

“求x”

“x在这儿呢”

令人深思,该拿高分

child3

“把厘米换成米”

“去掉’厘’字”

She did deserve a sit-down, this kid can relate…

好像没什么不对的…

child5

A truly superb answer

是这样没错

child6

“Mark和Mary想知道300名同学最喜欢的颜色,Mark问了150人,Mary问了30人,Mark认为自己的结果比Mary更可信,这是为什么呢?”

“因为我们男的都这样”

These are far better names

取名高手

child7

Did you have any classmates called Genghis?

你有叫Genghis的同学吗

Set them up, and they’ll knock ’em out

If there’s ever a time to celebrate the nurses of the world, it’s now.

12 May is International Nurses Day.

5月12号是国际护士节,就是今天!

nurse1

Perhaps International Nurses Day was never a date in your calendar before, but in light of the coronavirus pandemic that has changed the lives of citizens across the globe, it’s a perfect time to mark the date now and forever.

也许之前你都没注意过这一天,但今年提醒我们,要时刻保持感恩之心。

We have never been more collectively appreciative of the health care workers than we are today.

Even though a single day is not enough to praise the hard work nurses undertake every hour of every day, we want to personally thank them all, wherever in the world they may be!

衷心感谢医务人员的付出,感谢他们治愈着病人,也治愈着世界。

nurse2

Nurses are the true superheroes in society; they put themselves on the frontline, working long hours, often with little pay, all to save the lives of strangers. And recently they have risked their own lives by being the leaders in the fight against COVID-19.

Together let us celebrate International Nurses Day. Nurses of the world, we salute you, we thank you, keep up the fantastic work!

他们是真正的英雄,不分昼夜奋战第一线,不顾危险救人于水火。辛苦了!
