Notes
  • 'bù lěng yě bú rè' means 'neither cold nor hot'. The construction of 'bù...yě...' is a commonly used one in Chinese, e.g.

    'bú kuài yě bú màn' [neither fast nor slow]
    'bù nán yě bù róngyì' [neither difficult nor easy]

  • 'dào' in 'bāshí dù dào jiǔshí dù' indicates a range '80 degrees to 90 degrees'. More examples:

    'yì tiān dào liǎng tiān' [one to two days]
    'yì nián dào sān nián' [one to three years]
