Beauty Face Masks from Korea

Image
My niece has an online shop. She sells face beauty masks from Korea.   The masks bear the highly-coveted ISO logo. Not only that, the masks proudly bear the GMP logo, or Good Manufacturing Practice logo—which is a symbol of excellent products manufactured in South Korea. This symbol ensures Efficiency, Safety, and Stability. The  masks are authentic, directly from the Korean supplier. The masks are cute and colorful, so I got inspired to feature them here.

Shout to or Shout At?

Shout to or Shout at? Watch this video! ^_^  Prepositions really make a big difference. A change in preposition means a change in the meaning of a sentence. The phrasal verbs Shout to and Shout at are sometimes interchanged, but this SHOULD NOT be the case, because the two phrasal verbs are very different. SHOUT TO SOMEONE means you speak louder than usual, because your intention is for that someone to   hear you, because he or she is far away from you.   SHOUT AT SOMEONE, on the other hand, means you are angry or upset at a person. The person may be in front of you, or he/she may be in the other room, or maybe you are talking to him/her on the phone. In any case, you are upset with that person, and so   you talk to him/her emotionally. Japanese Translation by: Google Translate 前置詞は本 当 に大きな違いを生みます。前置詞の 変 更は、文の意味の 変 更を意味します。 Shoutto と Shoutat の句動詞は時 々 交換されますが、 2 つの句動詞は非常に異なるため、これは 当 てはまらないはずです。   SHOUT TO SOMEONE とは、あなたがいつもより大 声 で話すことを意味します。なぜなら、あなたの意 図 は、誰かがあなたから遠く離れてい

Head and Shoulders Pink Shampoo And My Super Long Hair

Image
evening lights, vines, long hair...  It's pink! ^_^  I have tried many other brands of shampoo before—and all of them were of course really good---but this is the one that suits my lifestyle and my hair the most. I have long hair. It’s super long, in fact. I blog, I vlog, I help my brother at the hospital with his dialysis twice a week, I teach, I make customized lessons for my students, I assess their levels and give supplementary classes to make sure that they reach the target—I do my laundry, I scrub my sink and pans, I scrub the bathroom floor and walls, name it, I scrub it--- I run errands for me and for my senior citizen neighbors---yeah—but does this mean that I have to give up taking care of my hair? Nah. Head and Shoulders Shampoo makes sure that my scalp is clean no matter how busy I get. This is very important. I live in a tropical country, and the air pollution can of course damage my hair, so I use Head and Shoulders to clean my hair and my scalp.  (Fortunately or

My Mini Makeup Kit

  Bobbie Makeup Tools  My students would always tell me, “Teacher, why are your eyebrows square?” “Teacher, I want to… (checks dictionary)…revolutionize   your makeup!” “Teacher, your eyebrows don’t look natural!” and many other sentences and questions that all mean the same thing—I can’t put makeup on correctly. (Putting makeup on, ironing clothes, and frying fish are the three things that I’ve been trying to learn but I haven’t succeeded so far…) I use a brown eyebrow pencil to draw my eyebrows albeit incorrectly, and I use the same eyebrow pencil to color my eyelids, I put some lip gloss on, and that’s it! I want to have the more polished made up look, but I don’t know where and how to start. Well, one day, I went to Robinsons Supermarket to buy some home essentials—and imagine my pleasant surprise when I found this kit in the small beauty section. Haha. I make vlogs, so I think these will makeup tools will be useful for a start. I hope I will look better in my next vlog. Haha

The Active and The Passive Sentence-Basic Examples

Photo credit: Freepik  The Active and The Passive Sentence-Basic Examples A lot of ESL students get confused with Active and Passive Sentences, so in this post, I am going to discuss the difference between the two, using simple sentences as our examples. We will use the more advanced and TOEIC-level sentences in my next post.   In the Active Voice, our focus is what the Subject does. In the Passive Voice, our focus is what happens to the Subject.   Simple Examples: John cleans the room every day. John-Subject (The doer/performer of the action) Cleans- Verb (What does the subject do?) The room- This is the object of the verb, this is the receiver of the action. Every day- This is an adverb, we will not focus on this for   now. Let’s focus on the structure of the sentences first. Note: In a Passive Sentence, we don’t have to repeat “by someone” again and again . It’s understood, it’s implied that somebody did it. We are just interested in what happens to the subject,

Every Day or Everyday?

  Both of these are right. The problem is, many people are confused with the usage of these two. Let’s discuss the difference. Every day is an adverb. It simply means Each Day. It answers the question How often, so this is an adverb of frequency.  Example Sentences: I go to school every day. (How often do you go to school?) She reads the newspaper every day. (How often does she read the newspaper?) He is a delivery truck drive. He drives to different parts of the city every day. (How often does he drive to different parts of the city?) The word Everyday, on the other hand, is an adjective, because it describes a noun. Example Sentences: Jogging is my favorite activity. A lot of people have difficulties dealing with everyday concerns such as paying bills, putting food on the table, and managing their schedules. You can watch the  video I posted above to have more insight on this. Thank you very much for reading this, and thank you for watching the video! See you a

Safeguard the Family!

  It's pink!  This bath soap is very much a part of my childhood. Growing up, I remember my mother buying some equally popular bath soaps for us to try, but eventually, she chose   Safeguard for all of us. She would buy the beige one, for she said it was the “hardest” and thus it would take a long time to use. With a lot of people in the family, her choice was logical (although it remains unproven, down to these days, if beige is really the hardest among all the Safeguard variants. Or maybe, it was just her imagination at work.) I still use Safeguard. I like the pink one because it’s pink, that’s all. I also think it’s the sweetest-smelling of all, because it’s pink. Someday, if I get a husband and kids or even a kid, I would pass this Safeguard (sort of) tradition to them as well. ^_^
