Yumi 的旅行手记 Yumi’s Travel Diary: New York 1

Yumi 的旅行手记 

yóu měi de jué dìng hěn tū rán

由美的决定很突然。Yumi’s decision was very sudden.

zhǐ jiān suí yì qiāo dòng le jǐ xià jiàn pán, xià yī miǎo, qián wǎng niǔ yuē de jī piào yǐ zhuǎn zhì yóu xiāng zhōng
指尖随意敲动了几下键盘,下一秒,前往纽约的机票已转至邮箱中。

After a few clicks, the flight tickets to New York is in her mailbox.

yòu guò le yì zhōu, rén jiù zài niǔ yuē le

又过了一周,人就在纽约了。

Another week later, she is here.

她想见一个人。一个在东京遇到的纽约韩国人。

tā xiǎng jiàn yí gè rén.yí gè zài dōng jīng yù dào de niǔ yuē hán guó rén

他很高,很直率。向大多数纽约人一样喜欢健身,而且有些自恋。

tā bú shì diǎn xíng de yà zhōu hǎo nán rén. bù wēn róu, bù tǐt iē, yòu jīng cháng shuō xiē mò míng qí miào de huà lái qì rén

他不是典型的亚洲好男人。 不温柔,不体贴,又经常说些莫名其妙的话来气人。

There is someone who she wishes to see here. A Korean New Yorker she had met back in Tokyo. He is tall, very straightforward. Like most of the New Yorkers, he loves the gym and is a little bit self-obsessed. He is not the nice, traditional Asian guy; not  gentle, shows no consideration to others, and always says ridiculous things to annoy people.

dàn shì yóu měi xiǎng niàn tā dà dà de yōng bào. suǒ yǐ zài jīng lì le cè yè nán zhuǎn de jǐ bǎi gè yè wǎn hòu, tā lái dào le zhè zuò chéng shì

但是由美想念他大大的拥抱。所以在经历了侧夜难转的几百个夜晚后,她来到了这座城市。

But Yumi misses his big hug. So after hundreds of sleepless nights, here she is, in the city of New York.

zài dōng jīng guò guàn le fán huá yōng jǐ de chéng shì shēng huó, yóu měi yì kāi shǐ duì niǔ yuē bìng méi yǒu tài dà de chōng jǐng

在东京过惯了繁华拥挤的城市生活,由美一开始对纽约并没有太大的憧憬。

dàn hái shì bèi shí dài guǎng chǎng rè nào de chǎng jǐng suǒ zhèn hàn

但还是被时代广场热闹的场景所震撼。

Living in Tokyo, Yumi is used to the busy and crowded city life, at first, she did not expect much from New York. But was still amazed when she saw the Time Square bustling with noise and excitement.

shòu měi guó diàn yǐng wén huà yǐng xiǎng, zǒu guo dà dà xiǎo xiǎo de jiē, jiù xiàng zhì shēn yú diàn yǐng qíng jié zhōng

受美国电影文化影响, 走过大大小小的街,就像置身于电影情节中。 

Due to the influence of American film culture, Yumi walked pass various kind of streets, feel as if she is in the film.

yóu měi zài xiǎng, rú guǒ zhè ge shí hòu tū rán zài jiē shàng pèng dào tā, huì shì zěn yàng yī gè qíng xíng ne? huì gān gà ba. tā men yǐ jīng hǎo jiǔ méi yǒu lián luò le

由美在想,如果这个时候突然在街上碰到他,会是怎样一个情形呢?会尴尬吧。他们已经好久没有联络了。

Yumi thought that, what would it be like if she suddenly sees him on the street? Bet it is going to be awkward. 

 

The song summarises the story so well

Lyrics can be found: 遗失的美好 My Lost Happiness
