语言文化点 Language & Culture Points:

驴友 lǘ yǒu
The word literally means "donkey friends", but it actually refers to "tour pals" or friends to travel with. It is a play on the word "旅游"(lǚ yóu ),which has a similar pronunciation.
Eg. 酒店为驴友们推荐最经典的旅行线路。
    The hotel recommends the most classic travel routes to the travelers.

讲究 jiǎng jiū 
be particular about/be picky about/stress
Eg. v. 公司讲究实际效果。
     The company stresses practical results.

   adj. 讲究的早餐/服装
       fine breakfast/elegant dress

对 duì
When using " (duì)" as a preposition, it means "to" or "towards" an object or target. The structure is basically:
对 + Object + Verbal Phrase

Eg. 她我很客气。
   She was very polite to me.

"对" is also used in such structures: 
对……来说 ("as far as ... is concerned") 
对……感兴趣 ("to be interested in...")
对……的印象("the impression of …").

Eg.
川菜我来说太辣了。
To me, Sichuan cuisine is too spicy.

中文很感兴趣。
I am very interested in Chinese.

她的印象很好。
She left me a good impression.

Cultural background: Chinese Lucky Numbers

Some Chinese people are superstitious and desire what they consider “good numbers”, thus they would pick a lucky date when it comes to wedding, traveling, laying the foundation of a new house, opening a business, or holding a funeral. The so-called lucky date refers to one that can bring happiness and avoid disasters. Nowadays, Chinese people tend to like dates that end with 1, 6, 8 and 9, as 1 stands for the best, 6 indicates luck, 8 means fortunes, and 9 sounds the same as the word “longevity”.
