You should say:

  • where it was (or is)
  • when you visited it
  • what it looked like

and explain why you visited it.

Ok then, well the place that I’d like to talk to you about was actually a show home that I went to visit with my parents, which was in a newly developed apartment complex not far from where we live. And I suppose it must have been about two or three weeks ago when we went there.

As for why we went there, well it was simply because we’re thinking of buying a flat as an investment. You know here in China, this is a very common thing to do, because investing in property is seen as being relatively risk-free. And some friends of ours who had already been there to have a look recommended that we also check it out.So we thought, why not!

Anyway, with regard to what the flat looked like, well basically, it was really nicely decorated, as you can probably imagine, what with it being a show home and all. For example, the floor was mostly marble, and there was a huge chandelier hanging above the dining table. So yeah, it all looked pretty impressive. I mean, even the wallpaper was nice, you know, it was, um… I’m not quite sure how to best describe it, but you could just tell it was really good quality from the feel and texture of it.

The only downside was the price because I think it was something like twenty-five thousand RMB a square metre, so the whole flat came to about four million, or somewhere thereabouts, which was a bit above our budget, unfortunately!
