It's even 25 degree, but still furnace here!
Good evening everybody!
Dear Amy, I am doing homework now. How do you think about this title? I hope it is correct! Because my room is facing west, it is even hot after it gets dark. Ah, I really wanna move somewhere cool! :P
Well, here goes my answers. Please kindly have a look...
1) Even if / though
-Even though the flowers are more expensive than if we bought them from a big market we still buy them
-even if it’s raining cats and dogs.
This means almost same as 'Although / though'. 'if' is conjunction and 'even' will emphasize 'if'.
2) even + verb
- Sometimes they even polish the vegetables and fruit to make them look more appealing.
-They even deliver it at the end of the day!
-they even pay you for it!!!
- He doesn’t even let you glance at the monkeys without asking you for some money!
In those sentences, 'even' emphasize the meaning of verbs.
3) even so
-Even so, I sometimes sneakily watch from my terrace
This is also conjunction. I think, in this sentence, 'even' itself works for conjunction. 'so' here means 'I don't really agree with making animals perform'.
Today, the guy in my dept. brought the souvenir from Fuji!!! You've heard Mt.Fuji? At the foot of Mt. Fuji, there is a factory which my company has and he worked there before. It sounds really nice that he could live there for 3 years, but he said it was very shocked. Because, at the time he joined the company, he did not know where he worked, and suddenly the company assgined him to work there. It is really usual for many Japanese companies though.
Anyway, what he brought to us was 'Monaka'. Luckily I've found the description in my Japanese-English dictionary:) Monaka is : a wafer cake filled with red or white bean jam. I made a cup of green tea in the office and had that for break. It was yummy!! I definitely prefer the red bean one with maron! :)
Amy, thanks for your kindness. I hope my answers are correct. Honestly I believe I have some mistakes, because I only manged to find 3 ways of using 'even'. I am looking forward to reading your reply.
Good night everyone!

This is monaka. Can you guess how much calorie it has? It has only 80 kcal per monaka! I found it healthy... I will have it tommorrow if it is still left. hehe!
