Try to make your blog readable

Now that you've got such a wide vocabulary and have learned all of the grammar basics, you can write something wonderful for other members to read. Here're some tips for you:

Don't use the words which are hard to…

Labuan - The Pearl Of Borneo

A few weeks back, I took my Mom to Labuan to visit my brother and his family who are staying there currently. My brother and his family lives in Labuan and will be moving back to West Malaysia at the end of the year. Thus, it's like killing two birds with one stone. I've been to Labuan, a few century ago, but never really had the opportunity to explore the island.

Labuan is also known as The Pearl of Borneo. It's located about 8 km east coast of Sabah and derived from the Malay world…

A sweet escape

Last Sunday I took one day trip to the sea because I felt bored in the crowded noisy city and needed somewhere quiet to throw away my worries. I would not choose this place to visit in summer because it will be really crowded. But it is winter now and I love winter.

The place I visited is Halong bay where is not far from Hanoi city. It took me about 7 hours on the car and I had only 4 hours on a cruise ship sailing around the bay to enjoy the scenery. Well, with such schedule there…

Short Stories?

I'm that kinda guy who loves very much to read short stories . I visualize the characters coming in and love to make films out of the plot. The irony is that I haven't done any movie yet. The backup story sounds so boring that I don't want to share it here. 

To reveal the truth, I drove into EC through my passion to read short stories. I was just browsing on internet when I ran into a short story "The Chapel" by Josef Essberger. It…

Writing Prompt: Holiday Capitalization

I love holidays, who doesn’t? In Canada, there are usually one statutory holiday per month, and for 2015, I have already some plans. On Family Day, February 16th, I’ll be staying all day at home and watching the entire season of my favorite TV show. That’s the best use of my day in the cold February winter day. Good Friday, April 3rd, is a day of spirituality and I will be going for a long walk on a nearby trail to enjoy tranquil solitude. Easter…

I Feel Cheated

Nowadays EC bloggers has been sprouting like mushrooms. This is good news for EC. It means so many members are sharing their views, stories and just anything on earth. I love reading blogs in EC, well except maybe poems. But it peeves me when I read a very interesting blog and found out it's taken from another site(s) and written by someone else without proper citation by EC blogger(s). 

When I read a wonderful blog, I would feel amazed that such blogger could come up with fantastic…
