See you IN or See You AT?

Image
  See you IN the restaurant or see you AT the restaurant? Whenever I say “Both are correct” to my students, they get surprised.   See you in the restaurant simply means we are referring to the situation in which the speaker is surrounded by walls or a place, we refer to the inclusion of space. The speaker is surrounded by something, enclosed in space. See you AT the restaurant simply means that we are referring to the exact spot. W can use this preposition in with many other words. You can watch the YouTube video for more examples. Thanks, see you again very soon! Enjoy reading my grammar blogs, and enjoy watching my grammar videos! Always have a nice day and stay safe! ~

Adverb or Adjective?

Image
Adverb or Adjective? In English, some words can have the same spelling and pronunciation but have different meanings, depending on their position in the sentence. Some learners of ESL (English as a Second Language) are often confused with these words.  Here are the words that are most commonly used as adjectives and adverbs. Fast Hard High Slow How do we know if it functions as an adverb or an adjective? Take a look at the following examples. Fast Mike is a fast driver.  In the example, the word fast describes the word driver , and driver is a noun. Therefore, the word fast functions as an adjective. Compare: Mike drives fast . The word fast describes how Mike drives. The word drives is a verb.  Therefore, the word fast in the given example functions as an adverb. The same principle applies to the following examples: Hard Mike is a hard worker. (adjective describing the noun worker) Mike works hard . (Adverb describing the verb works)   High

King Sisig-Bulalo World

  The brown crunchy thing was of course yummy! The egg was perfectly cooked! My bowl of hot, comforting complimentary soup in a Bulalo World bowl, my King Sisig waiting number showing my favorite number 11!  If you happen to be in Ever Gotesco Shopping Mall, Commonwealth Avenue Quezon City, or even if you just happen to be nearby and all of a sudden, hunger pangs strike, go to King Sisig-Bulalo World located at the lower ground floor. That’s just what happened and that’s just what I did when I was there, running errands. After inspecting (and smelling) the other restaurants nearby, I decided to just go to King Sisig-Bulalo World. Ooops, don’t get me wrong, haha… I also (in fact, always) eat at those other restaurants nearby but at that particular moment, my body chemistry was not in synch with the smell of the other places, and the aroma coming from King Sisig-Bulalo World was what my stomach was craving for. Of course, the place is clean, and the people who prepare the meals are r

Fashion Jewelry by Ellize

  Each flower has its own unique, alluring beauty. In the same way, each woman has her own charm and loveliness. We want to think that our natural beauty, coupled with our innate gracefulness and even lovelier personality, is enough…but admittedly, sometimes, we need a little help. This is where Elizze comes in. Today I am officially launching my online store, Elizze. This store offers apparel, cosmetics, and anything that makes the already lovely modern woman even lovelier. And today, I   have the honor to present my latest collection, Elizze Fashion Jewelry. Currently there are six items available, and all of them are priced reasonably.

Webcam And Other Stories

  I’ve always been a fan of Logitech camera. (I love all Logitech products but this will be featured in another post.) I love Logitech camera because it’s affordable, reasonable, and the image quality is clear. These images are taken using my Logitech camera, screenshotted from my laptop. No special lights, just my room light.  image screenshotted from my laptop with my Logitech webcam  another screenshot using my Logitech webcam, with some of  my paintings on the wall  One day my beloved Logitech cam had reached its lifespan, and I had many more classes lined up, so I had to run to the nearest computer store to buy one. Sadly, the store ran out of Logitech webcams, so I had no choice but to settle with any functioning webcam that the store had. I got this.    a webcam without a name...                                                                  ...but it's reliable and I like it.  It came with this box...  ---and these are the only specifications indicated in the bo

My Personalized Purse

Image
Yay! ^_^    Elizabeth When it comes to bags or purses/wallets, I don’t go for the brand. I go for the style, the color, and practicality. For as long as the item is durable, no matter how unknown the brand is, I go for it. The amount of money inside the purse is infinitely more important than the cost/brand of the purse. I’d rather have a plastic envelope or even a piece of paper for a purse with $1000   inside it than to have an expensive purse with almost no money in it. I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this small stall in our local shopping mall. The lady was making personalized purses, and so I lined up to have one. I don’t know what material was used for this purse, but it’s definitely durable. And of course, it has my name on it, so now I like it even more.   I can see years of us being together. Hahaha! By the way, the words above my name say Forever Young. That's the brand of the purse. ^_^
