My best friend in EC is Anele. Almost everyone in MyEC knows her. She comes from Philippines. She is a  Filipina. Her native language is Filipino. She's also a fluent English speaker. She's a teacher and teaches many subjects including English language. She is has not been active in this club since for a few months because of her job responsibilities. However, when she was here, she was among the most active and helpful members of MyEC. She helped a lot of members in improving their English. She's a not only a good teacher, but also a very caring friend. She's got a great sense of humor and we enjoy a lot when we are together. Hopefully, she'll come back to MyEC very soon.

Irina, Natasha, and Rosenmaiden are my Russian friends. They are from Russia. They speak Russian. They also speak English. Interestingly enough, all of them are teachers. They are my friends since my early days in this club and are always very kind to me. I'm very fortunate to have such great online friends.

Another wonderful friend of mine is Rabab. She's Sudanese. Yes, you've guessed it right! She's from Sudan. She lives in Khartoum which is the capital and second largest city of the Republic of Sudan and of Khartoum state. She speaks Arabic. She also knows very good English, but according to her profile still considers herself only a beginner. She's a mutual friend of Anele and me. And like all other friends of mine, she too has a great sense of humor. These days, as she doesn't visit EC often, I'm missing her a lot.

Another mutual friend of Anele, I and Rabab is Yasemin. She's Turkish. She lives in Istanbul, Turkey and speaks Turkish. Her second language is English. To be honest, I don't have the guts to introduce her properly. She claims that she's a psycho. And it's not a secret! Just go to her page and you'll find out many proofs scattered here and there. The top of her page reads, "You are entering a HEAVY SARCASM ZONE. Please wear your sense of humor.," so be a little careful. I hope she won't kill me when she'll read this blog. No, I'm not exaggerating! Every other day, she threatens me that she'll kill me very soon. Apart from what I've already said in her honor, she is a very lovely girl and a wonderful friend. I really enjoy spending time with her.

Thank you so much my dear friends, fellow members, and respected teachers for dropping past my blog. I've so many wonderful friends here in EC and it was really hard to choose from them. I'll probably write another blog to introduce my other friends.

Please, do correct me!

Your help will be highly appreciated!

You've written the blog in an original way. I really love the way that you introduced your friends with.

I like your sense of humor and your arguments with my twin and Anele. I missed T.Anele by the way.


Comment by Yusra on December 11, 2012 at 7:17

Nide and Twin, I read your comments before the reading the blog itself.. :D 

I'm curious to know what's going to be on that date. -_-  

Comment by Yasemin on December 9, 2012 at 15:28

You know that I always guarantee my task! I myself will kill you on 12.21.2012!! I will never leave this matter to chance! Have fun on your last days old lady! 

Comment by Rajesh on December 9, 2012 at 15:12


We all are missing Anele, and hope to see her very soon.:)

Comment by nida on December 9, 2012 at 0:17

Yup, you're! But I'd again insist that I'm not afraid. If you think that I'm a weak-hearted person, then you're mistaken!

12.21.2012?? Don't tell me that you believe in those funny prophecies! I thought, you're a bit sensible girl!

Thank God for what? For watching your pic and reading your comments early morning?

Comment by Yasemin on December 8, 2012 at 23:04

Am I threatening you? No dear!! I am just kindly telling you what I am gonna do with you. Trust me! Even my threatening would be enough to cause a heart attack in you!

You blackened my precious reputation! -_- Your punishment has been voted and decided. You are gonna be killed on 12.21.2012! Can you see my good deed here? You should thank God for this!
