Dear Daniel,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to thank you for the happy evening which I spent at your home last Sunday evening. The delicious dishes prepared by your wife tasted the same as those made by my mother and it made me feel nostalgic. Dancing and singing with you and your family made the weekend even more enjoyable for me.

Your little son is so cute, and I was surprised to hear him recite numerous ancient Chinese poems fluently. Your wife was so hospitable and the taste of dinner which she cooked impressed me a lot.

So, when are you coming to stay with me? There is a newly opened hotspot restaurant in my neighbourhood where they serve excellent food and drinks. Why not come and have dinner with me/us in this restaurant next Saturday, as I know hotspot is your favorite dish? On top of that, in the evening of that day, we can attend a music concert hosted in the national stadium which is about 10 minutes’ walk from my home. I know you are stressed out due to work, so attending a concert is an effective way to relieve yourself.

Hoping to see you soon.
