When we got engaged earlier this year, Jiajia's best friend said she would like to buy us a little oven (something we had been thinking of buying for a while). However, as the months rolled by with nothing received, it became increasingly embarrassing to ask about it, and yet too risky to buy one for ourselves, just in case! Finally, Jiajia dropped a heavy hint last week and our oven finally appeared! We tested it yesterday by making some little pizzas. They were tasty, I thought, but Jiajia's Mum had one bite and pottered off to make herself some noodles! Oh well...

If I were you, I would ask him or her for it directly. And the traditional food is more favourable for older people in China, I think. Maybe they couldn't get used to the taste.

The pizza in our oven looks like dog poo!
