【看CP學英文】謝薩莉,來自德國法蘭克福,因為發現去德國的華人越來越多,覺得學習中文應該會有助於未來的工作發展,2015年決定來台學習中文!2017年回到德國,沒想到竟然與去德國留學的台灣老公擦出火花,兩人因想法和價值觀契合,迅速墜入愛河,相戀幾個月後,便決定結婚,並和老公一起來到台灣!

Sally Hsieh (謝薩莉) hails from Frankfurt, Germany. She came to Taiwan to learn Chinese in 2015, thinking the ability to speak Chinese would be helpful to her career since Germany has seen an increase in number of ethnic Chinese people visiting in recent years.

She went back home in 2017, where she met her now-husband who was studying in Germany. The two immediately hit it off as they both shared similar values. After dating for a few months, they decided to get married and come back to Taiwan together. 

蛋糕對於德國人來說,是日常生活必需,從小薩莉就跟著奶奶和媽媽學做蛋糕,薩莉認為蛋糕是一件會讓人感到開心和幸福的事,來到台灣後跟老公提出一起推廣德國蛋糕想法,老公和公婆都大力支持,薩莉手工蛋糕事業也就此展開。

Cakes are a daily necessity for Germans, and Sally had been learning to bake with her grandmother since she was little. She believes cakes can bring joy to people’s lives. After moving back to Taiwan, she proposed the idea of promoting german cakes, and with both her husband and mother-in-law’s full support, she began her handmade cake business.

薩莉發揮德國人謹慎和追求完美的態度,每天幾乎投注工作12-18小時在蛋糕上,不斷的調整,只想做出最道地的德國蛋糕,終於經過半年的努力,事業也逐漸有了起色!除了工作,婚姻生活也是薩莉的挑戰之一,薩莉結婚時才22歲與老公相差將近10歲,兩人婚後一起打拼事業,工作生活都在一起,需要磨合的地方也與日俱增,起初爭執較多,但雙方都希望彼此能一起牽手的走下去,便開始調整自我的態度,讓彼此的關係多了更多愛和包容,現在薩莉、老公和公婆四人,每天都過的和樂幸福,而這也是薩莉最珍惜最感恩的時光!

Sally carried out the rigorous spirit and persistence towards perfection that Germans are known for, working 12-18 hours a day on creating the best german cake. After six months of hard work and countless adjustments, her career began to take off.

Besides work, marriage had also been a challenge for Sally. She was only 22 when she married her husband with a 10-year age gap between them. Living and working together had caused conflicts to arise, making them argue a lot in the beginning.

However, they both wanted to work things out and thus decided to adjust their attitude. With more love and understanding in their relationship, Sally, her husband and her mother-in-law have been living together in happiness and peace, and their time together is what Sally cherishes the most.
