A Busy Street:

 A Busy Street:

I am once again in that street where I first saw you.  It is one of the busiest places in the whole city.  I remember the smile on your beautiful lips.  Even today the slight trembling of your lower lip tickles my entire self.  I remember you were strolling in the street, which was looking narrow and so small because of heavy rush of traffic…

English is now taught by people of all ages. Not only pupils and…

I've made a huge mistake

First off, don't hate me; I'm just a messenger. Second, how many times have you bought a famous brand name and kicked yourself for doing it? I'm not one to judge (I am, actually), but it seems like that some companies tend to decrease the quality of their products drastically the very moment they make sure that they won't end up like The Bluth Company! I could name a dozen real enterprises who failed miserably, but let's not go there. To add insult to injury, some companies don't even bother…

Dear....

" There is no heart as big....as your smile, when u laugh, cry, or even when you are sad; fallen like a star, mad; looking upset from afar, or even glad, with your eyes sparkling like million flashes of brilliant light in the cold, and dark night.

Before visiting china

I want to tell you what measures you should take before going to china. Don't get me wrong. Of course, it is a nice country to visit. But I think we should know something.

1. First check out the weather forecast. Its northern part is colder than the southern part. So, if you are going to visit Beijing and near of it during winter or in the beginning of spring, please bring your winter clothing more.

2. Although it says spring begins from February but believe me it is cold and windy…
