The concept of one best friend..Do you still believe in it?

When I was a little girl, I used to believe in the concept of one best friend and I was so happy with that. Years passed, and I figured out that I do need more than one best friend. Therefore, I allowed my heart to open up. It works so easily. Now I have six best friends plus two best online friends. Let me count. Yeah, the total is eight best friends.



One to fight with..

Another to laugh with...or "At" huh why not… Continue

Spring

In December last year I wrote about winter in Bangladesh. Although the winter season lasts for just a couple of months, this year it has an adverse effect on the lives of the poor people. Still the cold wave might revive and send shiver down their spines as another half a month remaing before the cold officially subsides. Till then the rural people are still in danger.



Hopefully the sun has been shining quite brillantly over the past few weeks and the fog has been dispersed to a… Continue

Quotes - Sayings...

My friends, have wonderful days!!!



Only YOU



"Never try to compel others to change;

leave them free to change naturally and orderly because they want to; and they wil want to when they find that your change was worthwhile."

To inspire in others a desire to change for the better is truly noble;

but this you can do only by leaving them alone, and becoming more noble yourself."



Christian D. Larson (1874-1954)

Li'river in Yangshuo

It is a river called Li'river--漓江. It is in summer so it seems a little bit kraurotic.

Did Leonardo paint himself as "Mona Lisa"?



ROME – The legend of Leonardo da Vinci is shrouded in mystery: How did he die? Are the remains buried in a French chateau really those of the Renaissance master? Was the "Mona Lisa" a self-portrait in disguise?



A group of Italian scientists believes the key to solving those puzzles lies with the remains — and they say they are seeking permission from French authorities to dig up the body to conduct carbon and DNA… Continue

Boracay Beach

Two weeks ago, I was able to visit Boracay Beach, in Malay, Aklan, of course in my country. The last time I'd been there was 6 years ago. It was peaceful and the water was serene. Though the water was cold, still I enjoyed every moment that I'd been there. It was also a time to bond with my father and sisters.



Boracay Beach is known for its powder white sands, pristine waters and a tourist attraction. Anyone that had been there surely satisfied with what it offers.



I was… Continue

Do you agree or disagree with this statement: "Human being has exceptional diet unlike other creatures."

All beings in this planet (the Earth) provide their appropriate food in order to survive. They divided into three sections; one large group that produce food by absorbing light, water and carbon dioxide (we call them plants); another group are animals which eat plants, they are herbivore, and next type are also animals but eat meats calling carnivore, and finally, there is a special group that eats meats and plants such as human beings and a some number of animals, these… Continue
