Well, I enjoy driving around in my spare time. I always drive my car with my friends or family out to the countryside during the weekends to relax. I feel that driving not only enables me to go where I want to at any time, but I can also make my own itineraries and discover the stunning places that others may not find.

Normally, I’ll hang out with my friends because I want to relax, but after being a father, I spend more time at home with my kid, telling stories to him or playing games with him.

If I had to choose between the two, I’ll probably spend more time at home with my kid, telling stories to him or playing games with him, whereas, hanging out with friends will reduce my quality family time with my son.

Oh, definitely not, you know, a modern lifestyle brings people more convenience, however, in this modern fast-paced society the fierce competition makes more people spend more time at work, resulting in less quality time with family and friends.

Yes, definitely. After a tiring week, people really need to relax. Apart from earning money, I still need to enjoy my family time, hang out with friends to socialize and travel around to experience different lifestyles.

Well, between the two, old people are fond of a slow pace of life compared to young people, for example, old people enjoy walking in the garden or chatting with old friends, on the contrary, young people are fond of energetic activities such as football and hiking in the mountains.

Well, it’s kind of hard to say but people that I know around me tend to hang out with friends for dinner, but maybe for others, they will probably go shopping with family in the shopping malls to enjoy themselves. Well, I’m really into taking my kid traveling around to the natural places around here during the weekends to relax. Although traveling to other places is really time-consuming, I still like going out because I believe that staying close to nature can cultivate people’ s mental development
