Hello dear MyEC friends,

I'm glad to see many of you sound and active on MyEC. I'm sorry for making you worry. Alhamdulillah, I'm very well now. :)

It's true that I had been through the hard day last month. But it's not really bad. I'd thought the worst thing but then I focused on the recovery. If you would like to know, here is the story.

It starts from Saturday, 17th July, 2021. I had a fever and catched a cold, fair pain. I consumed honey every morning, but in three days, no much effect. Tempera

After taking a deep breath, I stood up on my toes, and dived, passing through the cool air, my fingers touched the base of the stream, then swam up back to the surface, looked here and there, no sign of the bouquet. The flow of water was fast. I dived again and swam blindly. After a while, I saw a bouquet that was far away. I had to swim carefully to avoid hitting myself with stones. I swam up back to the surface and took a deep breath. Once again, I dived and after swimming for a

Beauty of Pakistan

 

 

Beauty of Kohsar

 

 

I was on vacations and all my cousins visited our home. After dinner, we sat all together. Suddenly one of my cousins Ahmed asked Farhan, ' Where did you go in your last vacations?'

We went to a wonderland by plane from Rawalpindi to Gilgit. After a one-night stay, we left for Hunza. All the views were very marvelous. When we reached Karimabad passing through the Dour, there was a magnificent scene. The most beautiful of the peak of Raka Posh was in front of us.

    Sometimes people tend to give a judgement or believe in things related to some of the world big and rich culture . Just like that giving a false generalization according to one thought known about them . I have call it stereotype culture . We related many nations around the globe to one single form of act , food or manners in the same way we do with individuals.
Here we go to our comfort zone for a quick judgement , while we need more to judge and a lot of evidence .

Circulation

Seawater evaporates and becomes vapor. It is cooled in the sky and becomes clouds. Clouds make rain and it falls down on the ground and sea. Water circulates like this.


Herbivorous animals eat plants and carnivorous animals eat herbivorous animals. They die in due time and their dead bodies become nutrition for plants. Life also circulates like this.


People work and get money. They buy things and services from companies. Companies get a profit from customers and distribute the profit to their work

Heat of love

The train is moving fast.

The heat of love increases.

Try to be happy in your love.

If that love is too much for you, do not surrender

your heart to the days' behaviors.

Because the train is moving fast.

Love exists in the world, from eons past.

Stars twinkle at night, and darkness likes light.  

birds love each other,   

There is a beautiful song in the garden,

 Our nightly encounters were nice.

gentle and peaceful whispers.

That train is still moving fast.

Building on my last blog post, which was 7 years ago, what book, especially fiction,  from your native country or territory would you recommend to me?

And I am interested in modern authors more th

I`m returning!

Hey!

I have not been active here for several months. This is mainly due to the fact that I moved to another city and settled down here. I constantly have new plans reborn, how to help others and myself in learning English, and I constantly do not have enough time to start realizing them with high quality.
This evening  I was doing a task that sounds like this: Write a short but exciting story, beginning with the phrase "Jack was asleep in the chair, dreaming, when the phone rang ". I bring my ess

A cozy place at home...

 

Home is a place where we almost feel safe, delighted, relaxed and comfortable. And every home has a cozy place which is extremely special to us, provides the warmth of protection, a pleasant feeling always whenever we sit there. If I talk about my private place at home then it's the open space outside my room where I can stay for hours without seeking any company. The grace of the sky is noticeable apparently from there and it seems that the sky has opened its arm like a mother whenever u need

One of the goals when we are learning English is to put it into practice. Sometimes, it is difficult to achieve this goal due to the fact that we do not have someone to practice or because you feel stuck in the process. Here, I am going to comment on my personal experience in order to make English part of my life. Remember, the more you practice, the more you are going to improve.

FIND THE SNAKE

 Of all camouflaged animals, this might be probably one of the most invisible I’ve ever seen :/

P.S. This could be a Rorschach test to check what kind of crazy stuff you can spot among the dry leaves. But no... I swear there's a f*kin snake! :/

P.S. II. There will be a prize for the first member who finds it.*
