Describe a time when you received money as a present
You should say:
Who gave it
When you received it
What you did with it
How you felt about it
The experience I am going to tell you happened between my best friend and me. We have been classmates since high school and now we even live in the same dormitory. He is an energetic boy, crazy about basketball. He is also careless, not very good at picking gifts.
June the 13th was my birthday. This article is from Laokaoya website. Do not copy or repost it. He had been preparing for this since a month ago, mainly thinking about what he should give as a present. I was also curious, but I did not ask. On that day, he gave me a small box. I could not wait to open it and found 500 RMB lying there. He said he did not know what I wanted, so he left the choice to me.
With this money, I bought a shuffle, which is a small, convenient music player produced by Apple. I had longed for it for about a year, but did not have the enough money. I loved it so much that I carried it wherever I went.
When I received the money, I was a little surprised at first, because it is quite rare for people to do this in Chinese culture. But then I was happy because I could choose something I really wanted, not just accepted what they thought I wanted, which often went wrong. So I like this present.
