New roommate? New hall life! / 新室友?新生活!

New semester is starting soon. Are you excited to meet your new roommate? After a year living in Hall 4, I can tell you that those times were the best part in my U-life! You can also create your own memories!

First of all, foooooooood… Friendship can always be bonded over food. Buying ingredients from markets nearby after class, then cooking your signature dishes in the common room can get you familiarized with each other’s eating habits or culture. What a day to begin with a homemade breakfast and end with sweet soup!

After filling your stomach, it’s time to move around. Each hall has its own recreational corners providing all sorts of board and card games. If you prefer more active activities, a wide range of res.life events like room decoration competitions, singing contest, food tasting parties, and cultural nights welcome you to partner up and join!

Don’t forget to attend classes the next morning. An advantage of having a roommate is like having a human alarm. Often times, your roommate is more likely to be bothered by your alarm clock than you do. After class, you spend those precious time sitting together back to back, studying for the same course (or not) with the same spirit – let’s nail it together!

Time flies for my first year in CityU. So will yours. Let’s share the fullest of it with your closest pal!

Enjoy cooking with your new roommate. 與你的新室友共享廚藝秘訣。

~~~

新學期快開始了。有新室友,興奮嗎?我在賽馬會群智堂住了一年,可以肯定地說這段日子是我大學生涯最難忘的回憶。你也可以和室友編寫你們專屬的時光!

第一當然是美食。美食當前皆友朋。下課後一起到附近超市買食材,回交誼室煮自己的拿手菜,聊東聊西,可以了解到對方的飲食習慣和文化。一早吃頓自家製早餐,一晚吃碗糖水,多麼美好的一天!

填飽肚皮,是時候動動腦、動動手了。每座舍堂有獨立的康樂室,有各式各樣的康樂棋和二人卡牌遊戲。動態一點的還有各種宿舍活動如房間裝飾比賽、歌唱比賽、試食派對和世界文化夜等,都歡迎組隊參與。

不過翌日別睡過頭,忘了要上早課。有室友的好處是他可以發揮人肉鬧鐘的作用。很多時候,被鬧鐘吵醒的不是自己,而是你室友。然後他再喚「早安」叫你起床。下課後,背靠背坐著自修,雖然不一定是在努力同一門課,卻抱著同一樣的精神 – 要過三爆四!

我這一年這樣就過去了,你的也將如此。所以,記得更加珍惜與你室友共享這一年!
