Expector can't add comments

Sorry I was absent so long from MyEC, but I can't add comments - I can see your blogs, but 'Cancel' appears if I try to leave a comment. Even Josef has no idea what's wrong with my account. That's driving me up the wall or I was banging my head against a brick wall. 

Yes, I've just signed up with a new account. It seems I can add comments now under the new one - what a relief! You won't recognize how disappointed you are until you can't add comments…

A Drama Queen Sister

Pt1: Birthday

The package didn't arrive yet. I had no heart to tell him happy birthday with no prize. So I left home and spend times with my friends instead. No worries about my brother, he had his own world, which was not preserved for me.

I got to home not too late, found him reading in his room. I searched the package or something looked like that, nothing.

"I have a request!" I said

"what is it?" He answered with his eyes on the book.

"please carefully unpack your… Continue

The Beggar and the Poor Old Lady (First part)

One cold winter night, there was a beggar, who was busy searching for her food in the garbage bin, it was the day after Christmas’ Eve, and she was positive that she will feel the same festivity. She knew that rich people couldn’t eat all they had prepared and will end up throwing some delectable cuisines to her filthy dining bin.

The Wisest King’s Verdict

One day two women who were prostitutes came to their wise king. As they stood before him, one of the women said, “My master, this woman and I live in the same house. I gave birth to a baby while she was there with me. Three days later this woman also gave birth to a baby. No one else was in the house with us; it was just the two of us. One night this woman rolled over on her baby, and he died.  So she took my son from my bed during the night…

More Explanations: the Infinitive or the Subordinate Clause?

Well, my friends and learners, as usual I’d like to explain some sentences from my tests for you to gain some knowledge. Today, I will explain some infinitive constructions as you seem to have a lot of doubts about using them.

Here are my incorrect sentences from my tests.

1.  The question was very unexpected that I could not answer it.

2.  You know English well enough so that you can write such great blogs.

Of course, you…
