Hello teachers,  The context is: In a restaurant, a waiter is attending a customer. He takes his/her order. The customer orders for a soup and the waiter brings him the soup. He (the waiter) puts the soup on their table and walks away saying 'Sir/ma'am, here's your order for xyz soup. Enjoy your soup!'. After a while, the waiter comes back to the customer and asks ' Sir/ma'am, how did you find the soup? '  Teachers, I want to ask you what sentence in bold means, please. Is it correct English? Thank you....

I am working on a simple application which predicts you the wake up time if you go to bed at the moment. In example: if you go to bed at 12am and set your alarm, you should set your alarm to 8am. Is it correct if I write that "Wake up time for getting up lively: 7.30 - 8.30"? Also I want to predict the bedtime if you set your alarm to 8am the app says you that you should go to bed at 12am. Is it correct if I write that "Bedtime for getting up lively at 8am: 12:00 - 12:30"? Thanks for your assistance.
