  1. Do you often have breakfast?

Yeah, every day. Normally, I eat a bowl of cereal with milk/ most often because it is easy to digest. Sometimes I eat banh mi or pho to make something new for the day.

My brain can’t function properly without breakfast. I can’t focus on my work when I’m hungry. In fact, I usually have a light breakfast when I wake up. I don’t know how people live without breakfast.

  1. What kinds of fast food have you tried? [Why/Why not?]

When I was a child, fast foods were not really prevalent, but now there are a variety of fast-food restaurants, so I had many chances to try things like pizza, sandwiches, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, pancakes, muffins, noodles, milkshakes, However, I don’t like eating all of them because they’re not good for my health because they can cause a higher risk of obesity, depression, digestive issues, heart disease and stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and early death.

  1. Do you ever use a microwave to cook food quickly? [Why/Why not?]

No, but I’m considering buying one because it’s really convenient. It saves a lot of time and energy to cook or reheat food.

  1. How popular are fast food restaurants where you live? [Why/Why not?]

As I live in the center of HCM city, fast food restaurants are really common, especially among children and teenagers. They are everywhere,  just within walking distance.

Especially in the evenings, I see that a variety of fast food restaurants are crowded with many customers.

  1. Why do so many people love eating fast food?

Fast food is popular because the food is inexpensive, convenient, and tastes good.

I believe they are popular among children and the young generation because they are very fond of sugary and /ˈkæləri/ calorie-packed food items that usually satisfy their taste buds. /ˈteɪst bʌd/Vị giác

  1. When would you go to a fast-food restaurant? [Why/Why not?]

Answer: I am the kind of person who prefers homemade food these days, but that does not deter or stop me from visiting a nice fast food restaurant once in a while.

I believe I eat at a fast-food restaurant around every 6 months.

So I only go to a fast food restaurant on special occasions, like a birthday party or just a normal gathering with my friends.

  1. What did you do on the weekend?

As usual, I and my husband enjoy seafood, or Thai Tom Yum, at my home because we are big fans of seafood, so we have it every week. We had a really great time.

Sometimes we go to seafood restaurants to enjoy ourselves.
