Hello! I am a Japanese woman who live in Japan. I like Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, and UK.
I am learning English. Please tell me when my English grammar is wrong. I often make a mistake.

A part-timer lady's daughter who bought the box in England gave us cookies.
She is a Japanese teacher and has returned home to Japan.
We eat it with some tea. Taste wonderful!
It seems to be high in calories though...

11th Oct 2005, 12:37

teflon says:

Shortbread is really tasty.. but it does have a lot of butter and sugar in it!

11th Oct 2005, 12:46

bmal says:

pah suger and butter arent that bad

11th Oct 2005, 12:48

teflon says:

Did I ever say they were? :)

11th Oct 2005, 12:48

bmal says:

no no you didnt

11th Oct 2005, 12:52

yoshiko says:

Oh,damn it, that was biscuits but cookies.

nice to meet you, UKMARI. I envy you because you live in LONDON!

Hi, bmal, You like these, too? I forgot to ask her where she bought it. Is it anywhere?

11th Oct 2005, 12:58

bmal says:

you can get them anywhere but they seem to have a scottish theam.

11th Oct 2005, 13:01

yoshiko says:

Hello teflon, nice to meet you.
I always like some cake in which sugar and butter included:)


11th Oct 2005, 13:02

yoshiko says:

thank you for teaching me that, bmal.

May I ask you the meaning of "a scottish theam"?

11th Oct 2005, 13:04

bmal says:

sorry spelt it wrong theme as in 'theme park' does that help?

11th Oct 2005, 13:10

yoshiko says:

What you mean is.. the biscuits usually seld in a scottich theme park?

11th Oct 2005, 13:12

teflon says:

I think what bmal meant is that shortbread is a Scottish food - although you can find it in most supermarkets.

11th Oct 2005, 13:20

teflon says:

(and there aren't any Scotitsh theme parks that I know of, but it's an interesting idea :))

11th Oct 2005, 13:20

yoshiko says:

Anyway, my English is insufficient still.
Thank you for helping, bmal and teflon! I was glad.

11th Oct 2005, 13:20

bmal says:

no not scottish theme park sorry for confusing you they are pakaged with pictures of scottish things.

the biscuits come from scotland originally but they sell them every where but make them 'look like' they are from scotland. soory for any confusion i cant explain things very well.

11th Oct 2005, 13:22

yoshiko says:

bmal, you should not say sorry. You explained me very politely.
Thank you really!

11th Oct 2005, 13:27

bmal says:

thats ok just trying to help

11th Oct 2005, 13:29

yoshiko says:

teflon, I hang my head in shame...
OK, there is not any scottish theme park.
But I also think that is a good idea:)

11th Oct 2005, 13:35

teflon says:

while Walkers look very Scottish, it's because they are - the factory is in Aberlour, in the north of Scotland.

11th Oct 2005, 13:35

teflon says:

yoshiko: no need to be ashamed!
I know a pub in Glasgow which you could probably count as a Scottish theme park - it sells just about every whisky you can think of, the staff wear kilts, and it's got memorabillia from all over the country.

11th Oct 2005, 13:37

bmal says:

i think a scottish theme park would be excelent i think you have found a new thing for th scotts to do.

11th Oct 2005, 13:40

yoshiko says:

teflon, may I ask you in addition? Is the label of the whisky tartan?

bmal, thank you. You made me cheer up.


11th Oct 2005, 13:53

teflon says:

Ooh, I'm sure some of their whiskies have tartan labels :)

11th Oct 2005, 13:55

yoshiko says:

Thank you for your reply.
I would like to look these things at the first opportunity.

11th Oct 2005, 13:58

teflon says:

yoshiko: I'll make sure I pay a visit to Uisge Beatha next time I'm in Glasgow, and I'll take some pictures..

11th Oct 2005, 14:06

yoshiko says:

You don't say! That's great! I'm very happy! I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Dhamaka says:

my favourite biscuits - second only to jaffa cakes!

11th Oct 2005, 16:56

yoshiko says:

Hi Dhamaka, what is "jaffa cake"?
Is it a famous cake?
This?

">http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/alabaster/A185104


It seems savory:)

12th Oct 2005, 12:52

Dhamaka says:

yes exactly! soft, sweet sponge underneath, succulent orange flavoured jelly in the middle and light chocolate covering on top

yum yum... :)

12th Oct 2005, 14:53

yoshiko says:

I've not known the word "yum yum".
I feel it's interesting. I'd like to use it when there is a chance.
Thank you for using an interesting word, Dhamaka.

13th Oct 2005, 13:37

bmal says:

ooooh jaffer cakes are lovely.

13th Oct 2005, 13:52

Dhamaka says:

I have friends in Florida who prefer me to send Jaffa cakes to normal Christmas presents..

I just sent them those new Jaffa Cake Cake Bars to see what they think

13th Oct 2005, 17:06

bmal says:

have you had mini jaffa cakes?

13th Oct 2005, 17:14

Dhamaka says:

yes,

I don't like them so much. I think the size makes the chocolate and orange out of balance so there's too much chocolate and not enough orange.. Do you like them?
