However, if there was one particular fruit, which I would just love to eat for the rest of my life every day, then it would be “peaches”. Yes, it is absolutely obvious by now that “peaches” by far is my most favourite fruit, which stimulates my taste bud unlike any other fruits in this world.

And, she was never relenting in her pursuit, no matter how hard I tried to convince her that I would be her worst “drawing” teacher ever. So, why exactly she got the idea that I would actually be able to teach her “a

About 7 years ago, learning about computer repairing skills or getting a certification on this important trade skill wasn’t exactly an easy thing in my little old town, where I used to live, because there weren’t just many good IT or technical insti

It was about a couple of years ago, when one of my close friends was seriously injured in an accident, and I needed to see him in a hospital. When I heard the news about the accide

During my early university days, I was so passionate about owning a motorbike, mostly because I grew up riding on an old motorbike with my old but very “active” grandpa. Actually, my grandpa and I had such a loving and warm relationship

I also like to enjoy my day in the countryside whenever I get an opportunity, and today I would like to describe such an enjoyable day that I had spent about a few months ago.

When I was a university student, I was really passionate about riding a bicycle, either with my friends or alone. However, the problem with riding alone was that I never felt as energized as riding with my friends. So, one day, I, along with several other friends of mine, decided to hit the road on a day-long bicycle tour

But, the problem is, I couldn’t follow my own rule sometimes from my end because the other parties either had to cancel an appointment or change its schedule. It was about a few years ago, when I was suffering from some chronic abdominal pain, and I needed to see a specialist gastroenterology doctor. But, the problem was that getting an appointment with a good doctor was never an easy thing because there wer
