Breakfast Revisited

This morning, I was going to have breakfast and wanted to tell my friends. This was no the preparing anymore, but the actual eating. I had no idea how to say that, so I made it a very simple 我早饭。 I figured it was not correct, but at least it would get through what I was doing and I wanted to practice using Chinese.

When I came back from breakfast, my bro had corrected my chinese already:

Ang: so didnt find you
but looks someone busy
btw it's dutch chinese

I will have to check whether I have any of that tea left, sipping jasmine tea now.

Welcome back

Nanny: welcome back
what would welcome back be in chinese?

Ang: 欢迎回来

huan1 ying2 欢迎 to welcome / welcome
hui2 lai5 回来 return / come back

Yes, I know, I have been away for too long. Life was a bit overwhelming, but I am going to try to study more chinese again. Even if it isn't much , keeping some study going will be beneficial, right?
