认识新的合作伙伴(03:00 PM)

I’m Glad to Get in Touch with You

It’s 3 p.m. The market has just closed and there comes a lull.

Now it’s time for a coffee break. I turn on my mobile phone and see 2 missedcalls, 3 text messages.

Oh, it will be a busy afternoon just preparing for the business trip to Hong Kongthis week.

Where would be a good place to takea client out for lunch in Central HongKong?

I ended up choosing “L16” which islocated in the center of Hong Kong Park anddialed then for a reservation.

“Hi, I would like to make a reservationfor lunch this Thursday at 12 p.m.”

“May I have your name please?”

“My name is Liv Kim and I would preferwindow seats, please.”

“How many people will therebe?”“Only 2.”

“The reservation is completedunder your name. Thank you forcalling.”

I should also remember to give Tony, whom I will meet through Andrew, a call.

I have to call him right away to first introduce myself and then schedule the timeand place to meet.

TRANS

下午3点,刚闭市,周围笼罩在宁静当中。
现在是喝咖啡休息的时间。我打开手机,有2 个未接电话和3 条未读短信。
哎呀,今天下午单是准备这周香港的出差之行也够我忙的。
想在香港中心区请顾客吃午饭,有什么好地方吗?
我决定在香港公园内的L16 吃饭,于是给饭店打电话预约了座位。
“你好,我想预约餐桌,星期四中午12 点的。”
“您贵姓?”
“我叫金慧莲,我想要订靠窗户的桌子。”
“几位?”“两位。”
“以您的名义预订的餐桌已经预约好了,感谢来电。”
这次出差还要通过安德烈认识托尼,不能忘记给托尼打个电话。
我还是先给他打电话做自我介绍,然后安排跟他见面的时间和地点吧。
