Ice cream addiction

Hey guys,

We all know how good ice-cream can be :) For me is like a illegal drug.

Eating ice-cream in winter time is my favorite activity :) I love Italian ice. They have the best flavors ever. When I`ve been working in a Ice Cafe, my boss show me how he mixed the ingredients.He had 40 different tastes. Every day after work the ice-cream cone was my best "companion" for the way back home.

My favorite flavor is yogurt. Which one is yours? Do you like Italian ice…

Make an impression

You will find many definitions on happiness and many of them may be true.

Happiness is an act of kindness.

Have you ever helped a needy and felt how it feel?

You feel empowered, satisfied, grateful and happy.

It feels great to be able to help someone, to bring a smile on a poor's face.

Sometimes the best things that you can do with a few cents is to give to a needy.

Man is a social animal. Man can't get happy alone no matter how rich… Continue

I don't think it's acceptable for a passenger to open the emergency exit of a plane for no proper reason

Did you hear that an angry Chinese passenger opened the emergency exit of a plane? That can be so unbelievable but really happened.

The plane was on the way to the runway, but the runway was so busy that the plane had to wait until it was allowed to use the runway - all the passengers had already been stuck on their seat without air conditioning for quite a while. Suddenly, a passenger unfastened his seat belt and went to open the emergency exit (door).  The passenger was arrested for…

The slang word of the day is Wicked, which means very good, excellent or outstanding.

Is there another meaning for this word?  Maybe the Wizard of Oz can tell us something.

Writing Challenge : MyEC Holiday Cookbook (The Not So Festive Recipe)

I love eating, but will drag my feet, and hand, and every organs in my body to do any cooking. Sometimes, I do wonder how do I survived having eaten some of my so called 'home cooked' dishes. Anyway, I tried my hardest to search, well more like rummage, through my very limited knowledge of dishes and came up with this recipe.

It's a very simple recipe, and unfortunately not limited to holiday season. I chose this recipe because it's simple, and the ingredients, I hope easily available…

When It Rains, It Pours

On 14 January 2015, once again I had to travel to Sandakan to attend a meeting. Since there was only one direct flight to Sandakan, as usual, it was going to be a 2-day trip. I reached Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) with an ample time to spare since I had checked-in through my mobile. 

As you may have known, it's a monsoon season in Malaysia, so it's always raining, though lately it was not that bad. The flight was 2 and 1/2 hour, and there was no in-flight entertainment.…

Expector’s Writing Challenge: Online shopping vs in-store shopping

It depends on what I’m buying. For weekly grocery shopping, my preference is getting into my car and drive to the supermarket to buy them. Nothing replaces the touch and feel of a tomato or an apple to see how ripe they are. Quality of these items is important and I won’t buy our groceries online. The same is true with shoes and clothing. They must be tried before being taken home. You can never be certain of the size and the way they look on you when you buy them online. With in-store…

Expector's Writing Challenge - Living On My Own

I live on my own and I am happy like this. Only my family - I mean my husband and my kids. Some of you might opose that families should stay together but from my point of view it can sometimes create many generational conflicts. Here in my country living with elder generation isn't so common, maybe more in the villages but in the city we definately prefer own privacy.…

Expector's writing challenge : Trying to eat known local food.

I always try to get known local food, I mean Bangladeshi cuisine when I step out from my country. Though, sometimes, I like to taste other cuisines also.

In true sense, I am a bit scared person. I scare of many things. May be it is one of the reasons of my local food loving habit. Secondly, I always like to think in this way that if I try new items of food, it may kill my time. You know during traveling how important time is!…

Expector's Writing Challenge: Argumentative Essay

Are you ready for another writing challenge? I hope so. Let's try to write an argumentative essay.

Essay is a short piece of writing. Argumentative writing is different from narrative writing, descriptive writing or expository writing. Argumentative writing can be so useful, not only in taking an English test such as TOEFL, but also in sharpening your writing skills. Writing or composing an argumentative essay can be so challenging, though. 

First, you need to know what an…

I have become a member of EC on 31 Dec 2014 in order to improve my skills of writing and speaking English mainly.

I learned English at grammar school in the seventies last century. In 2011, I realized that commanding this language would become more important privately as well as professionally. Therefore I decided to reveal my knowledge and abilities and commenced learning English at a school for adult education. Firstly, I was being taught fundamental matters which made it obvious…

Sometimes It's Not What It Seems

My family loves cats. As far as I can remember, we always have cats in the house. No matter how annoying they can be sometimes, but they always chose our house to be their sanctuary. I guess we are just born lucky to be picked by them.

So it really bums me when I noticed that I'm allergic to cats, well to all furry animals actually (and I always say in the main chat room, to all furry animals and hairy men). But that doesn't stop me from…
