隐藏技能

(yǐncánɡ jìnénɡ)

A: Why do you have so many cooking recipes in the photo album in your phone? Are you preparing to learn how to cook?

你的手机相册里面怎么收藏了这么多菜谱呀?这是为学做菜做准备的吗?

(nǐde shǒujī xiànɡcè lǐmiàn zěnme shōucánɡ le zhème duō càipǔ ya? zhèshì wèi xué zuòcài zuò zhǔnbèi de ma?)

B: Yup. I've seen so many food bloggers share their cooking recipes online that look both healthy and delicious. I just wanted to save them so I could learn to make them when I have the time. 

是呀,我看到网上有很多美食博主分享他们的烹饪食谱,又健康又美味,我就想记录下来等有空的时候也学着做。

(shìya, wǒ kàndào wǎnɡshànɡ yǒu hěnduō měishí bózhǔ fēnxiǎnɡ tāmen de pēnɡrèn shípǔ, yòu jiànkānɡ yòu měiwèi, wǒ jiù xiǎnɡ jìlù xiàlái děnɡ yǒukònɡ de shíhòu yě xuézhe zuò.)

A: Can this be considered a hidden ability? You save these like you have already learned them, but you basically have no time to actually go and make them.

这算是一项隐藏技能吗?就是记下来就好像自己已经学会了,但其实根本没时间真正去做。

(zhè suànshì yīxiànɡ yǐncánɡ jìnénɡ ma? jiùshì jìxiàlái jiù hǎoxiànɡ zìjǐ yǐjīnɡ xuéhuì le,dàn qíshí ɡēnběn méi shíjiān zhēnzhènɡ qù zuò.)
