Yeah, I often meet new people when I survey factory with my team. Because if we want to develop new product for our company we have to go to the factory check every thing about material, their employee, factory, gallery…so that why we have to go a lot of factory and meet lots of new people in there.

I like to go to wedding party. I remember my old friends and I memorize the old situations.

I often meet new people at work because for some of them our job is only a temporary job. I like that because I always have an opportunity to get to know new people with different life experience to tell me.
