I’d like to talk about a cheese cake I made for my mother’s birthday. It’s a rich, creamy, cheery-top cheese cake. I made it at a dessert store about 2 weeks ago. If I remember correctly, it’s a raining day. I just got out of the underground station and planned to buy a birthday cake for my mother in her favourite dessert store. In order to take shelter from rain, I passed by a newly opened dessert store and noticed they offered semi-self-service that people can make a cake by themselves under the instruction from professional baker. I decided to make a birthday cake by myself for my mother.
It was the first time for me to make a cake and I followed the baker’s instruction. I did every step of barking from toasting, to whipping cream, to decorating, and I tried to make every step perfect because I wanted to surprise my mother. I spent six hours in the kitchen to bake this cheese cake. And I felt exhausted when I walked out of the store.
I was willing to spend six hours to make this cake because I wanted to give a surprise to my mom for her birthday. My mom liked my cake and said the taste is unforgettable and the sweet cherry perfectly highlighted the flavor. When there’s nothing left on the plate, I had a sense of satisfactory.
How do people usually choose gifts?
First, people will consider the price. It is important to give right-priced gifts to people. Then people will choose the gifts based on the receivers’ like. People hope the receiver like their gifts and appreciate the gift. If they do not know the receiver well, people will choose some common gifts.
Why do some people find it hard to choose gifts?
Because it is difficult to presume others’ interests and demand. People hope the receiver appreciate the gift but different people have different tastes. Besides, the gift can not be over-priced or under-priced. Because the receiver will feel pressure or under appreciated.
Do you think useful gifts are always more suitable than those useless ones?
I agree. Useless gifts can only be put as decorations or be put in the storeroom. The gift will lose its value. In contrast, useful gifts can be used very often and the receiver will remember the giver every time he or she use the gift.
Do people give the same gifts as they did in the past?
I don’t think so. I think it is impolite to give the same gifts to same person. The receiver would think they were under appreciated and felt not being respected. Therefore, people will not give the same gifts to their friends unless they are asked to do so.
