A dialogue between grandpa (GP) and grandson (GS).
GP: Dearest Grandson, have you ever felt hatred to someone?
GS: Yes, Grandpa. I even wanted to squeeze the neck of that person whenever I met him.
GP: Oooh! Why so?
GS: He defamed me, mocked me, and always made me feel embarrassed in front of my friends.
GP: So, how did you feel?

The morning is so gloomy, and he is in a deep sleep. He wakes up when the sun shines right above the head. Finding his wife and his daughter no more around him, he recalls everything happened all of a sudden yesterday. He closes his eyes for a few minutes more. Afterwards, he gets up, throws on his only black jacket, takes the car key, and hits the road. Crazily thinking of committing suicide, on a highway, he very fast drives his car. In the…Continue
Good morning, everyone! :)
Borrowing the quote from Adaline, "Knowledge has no value unless we use and share it", I would like to discuss about grammar.
In this session, I will discuss 'Causative Verb'. From my observation, it is one of the grammatical mistakes commonly made by learners here. Please just ask OR tell me if you have any…Continue
Heyy you! Dare to love someone??

Random thoughts with Geography Idioms. :))
People are often on cloud nine after digging deep to find an item on online shopping. You know why? Because they found the dirt cheap one at last. You'll be surprised to know that some rich people do that as well. They said, "we are down to earth". D
A down to earth…Continue
There was a man who worked in an office. He often came to work late, though it was still in tolerant limit. He also went home hurriedly once the working hour ended, at the last second. But oftentimes, he would come back to office after an hour to work overtime.
Everyone in the office was wondering what was wrong with that person. They investigated him. One found that he went to the hospital in the morning, so did the other find in the evening, after work. They discussed about the…Continue
In front of a minimarket.

Once, I found a startfruit seller tried to deceive my elder sister by reducing the weights. But, I made her fail in doing that. I smiled knowing it and said, "Ma'am, it is still a half kilogram to reach 5 kg." -This was kind of dishonest way to earn money which make others be in loss-
A few weeks ago, I bought two packs of pen and a boardmarker. After counting the charge myself, I knew I…Continue
One day, at 07.00 pm, a sweet new couple was on their second date. The girl was with a sweet white blouse and a knee-length maroon checked skirt. She put high heels on her feet and beautiful pendants on her ears. The boy was with jeans and black t-shirt. They entered a restaurant and accidentally met a group of boyfriend's friends. They greeted them and she felt really awesome. After a while, they had their table, number 28, second floor.…Continue

The victory of his team (2-0) was filled with tears and hysterical weepings of the members and passionate fans of the team in the…Continue
