Hi hadia,
I've been hectic these days, what's up? :)
Well, that's interesting that you really wanted to have blue eyes ...! Really?
You know what, I've got a funny view about blue eyes (or gray eyes); their eyes actually look like glass balls!
I can't see where the eyes are focusing on! Naturally, it's hard to read their mind.....! (haha, see? This is one of my skills to survive!⭐️)

Lucky you, hadia with black eyes! If I had chance to see you, I could read your mind instantly and describe you precisely! ⭐️
So without seeing you, it's a bit hard for me to sketch you because I don't have a wild imagination like you!⭐️
But I'll try..., let me see... you've got a well-balanced shape of a body, which looks healthy, you've got a longish brownish hair with fringe... You look modest and are very funny actually (in a positive way)! Your character matches the image of greenery! Vivid green makes people's eyes restful, a flexible branch and whip never breaks, the leaves wave in a pleasant breeze. Surprisingly enough, greenery can take off even in the small space between rocks as long as it can get touch of the sun! Amazing! ⭐️
Are these true to you, hadia? It's obvious that you are smart, so I tried to imagine your inside without looking at your eyes! :))

⭐️⭐️⭐️My Dearest BFF ⭐️⭐️⭐️

'Hi there dear elsa.....
I got a new simile :)
⭐️⭐️⭐️As creative as Elsa⭐️⭐️⭐️
You've got such an amazing and innovative thinking......And still you think you don't have wild imagination...huh???
Try to love yourself a bit :P You're really an amazing thinker....
You captured the beauty and greenery inside me including the natural things......!!
While reading your beautiful comment......I just though you're frog! Analyzing the nature beautifully :P Ha ha just kidding....Remember you said the same thing when we just started our friendship??
well, Hm....I must say that you sketched me rightfully .....
And I wanna ask something......!! Did my writing about your figure true??
Do you really dress up in braids...huh/??
Um...
"Surprisingly enough, greenery can take off even in the small space between rocks as long as it can get touch of the sun! Amazing!"
Yeah, you're such an amazing writer indeed :P

Hi hadia, thank you! :)
I'm as happy as a clam! Did my imagination fit like a glove? :))
I still imagine you're as bright as a button; as innocent as a lamp; your soul is tough as nails; your smile is as snug as a bug in a rug, although we may be as different as a night and a day, I hope our friendship is as deep as the ocean! ⭐️⭐️
.... Oh, did I say the same thing? Wow, your memory capacity is as large as life, you know, life is like a box of chocolates!! :))

Me? A frog?? Ha ha, you're as cute as a kitten, hadia! :P
Well, to your question, honestly I haven't dressed up in braids..., because my hair is actually as thin as a toothpick and as light as a feather!! :P I must say you sketched me two out of six points rightfully....!! It wasn't as easy as shooting fish in a barrel...huh? :))

Anyway, you know what? A tree that takes off in the small space between rocks is as strong as an ox, compared with other trees on the ground which are as common as dirt. Have you seen such a tree in the nature? How do you feel about it? :))

⭐️As sweet as Elsa⭐️ (Don't take me as nutty as a fruitcake, please!)

I have a question? Should I spell color as "color" or "colour"? Because on the website it was "colour" but in other places I have seen "color" so...

Hi englishmeow!
Good question! Both spellings of colour and color are correct :)
Colour is the English spelling whereas color is the American English spelling. As we are an English website we use colour. I hope this helps ...
Best wishes, Tina (LearnEnglish Team)

My favourite colour is green.... and orange! But it depends on what it is. I rarely wear orange cloths recently.

You are so funny. SNSD is a girlgroup which has name in English is " girl' generation" including 8 members. They are from Korean. Their colour symbol is pink. They had several concerts in Singapore. They are in the same company ( SM entertainment) with Suju, F(x), Red Velvet, .....
Have you ever listened their songs ? I like the song " Dear Mom" most.

Yeah…. I think I can understand the lyrics….
The song is all about mum, and "I love you, mum", right? :)
To me, it's a little embarrassing. Maybe, our relationship might be too close to say so in a very artificial way. Or we have a distance because it was when I was an elementary school that I recognized my 'mother'…!
I wanted to get along with my mum much further……………….

Hi Elsa, I am very happy to become your good friend.
I think that I know what you want to say!
I believe that I can understand your feeling.
I guess I realise the difference between Giang and gianggiang.
Because we are good friends, we need to help each other. ( I mean if sometimes I am at mistake, please tell me,I will change,I promise:))

Hi Giang,
I'm very impressed by your positive energy which makes you out to be an evergreen fruit tree! You're a potential BBF! :))
BTW, I'm not a perfect friend to correct your language mistakes….., but I'll try to help you as much as possible! You know, we need friends who mirror us to grow up: Hey, what are friends for? :)))

Hi gianggian,
You're so cute! I'm very happy to have you as a BFF and hear your considerable encouragement!
Actually I grew up with a maid and I didn't know much about my mum who was always busy for caring my siblings.
Maybe because I was fuss-free...!? :))
What about you?

Hi Elsa007, I don't know what " fuss- free " means. I'm sorry. Could you explain clearly?
Ahhh, humorous Elsa + smart Hadia+ insightful Giang= ......
You answer is quite creative, but a mathematician rarely repeat his/her answer. The answer is "Venn chart" (*! *)
( I have a exercise, after finishing it, I hope you will feel happier! If you like, I will write it, if you don't like attending this game, I won't write any more. Are you ready?)

Hi Giang!
Thank you for the interesting reply! Well, as for the word, 'fuss-free', my mum knew she didn't need to take care of me entirely because I was healthy and I liked to go play outside all day. So her maid came to take care of a hyperactive kid instead of my mum….
By the way, giant! Yes! I'm ready to attend your game! What is it??

Well, you need a paper, a ruler, a pen. I very sorry because It is hard for me to write in English!!
It is a Math exercise. It is very easy!
We have coordinate axis Oxy, Step 1: point A (1,2) , B ( 2,2), C ( 2,1) ,D ( 1,1) , E (1;3/2) , F ( 2, 3/2). We connect A and B, A &D,D&C, E&F,
Step 2: We have points G (3;2) H (3,1) I ( 4,1), Connect G and H, H &I
Step 3: Points N( 6,2) M ( 5,2) R( 6,1) S ( 5,1) K ( 6,3/2) P( 5,3/2). We connect M and N, P &K, S &R
Step 4 Points T ( 17/2, 2) , Z ( 8,1) , Q (9,1) , connect T& Z, T& Q.
Can you guess what it is ?
I hope you won't think that I am a boring girl after finishing this exercise. Good luck!

Hi Giang!
Thank you for the fun geometric quiz! I'm almost…but I just want to make sure that if T (17/2, 2) is right??
You're a creative girl, aren't you?! :)))

Yes, right. The letter A is not perfect. point V is midpoint of TZ, U is the midpoint of TQ. We connect V&U

Thank you ginagginag! Then, my turn, ready?!
We have coordinate axis Oxy,
Step 1: point A (1,1) , B ( 2,1), C (1,2) ,D (2,2) , . We connect A and C, B&D, B&C,
Step 2: We have points E (3,1) , F (4,1) G (3.5,2) ), Connect G and E&F. point H is midpoint of GE, I is the midpoint of GF. We connect H&I
Step 3: Points J(5.5,1) K (5.5,2). We connect K&J
Step 4: Bookend the letters saying 'Gee'….. and read from right-to-left! Good luck!

Wow," Giang", Elsa- you are much more intelligent than me!! Singaporean students are said to be the most intelligent in the world. Uhm, Do you know about AM- GM, BCS, Nesbit, Holder,.... inequalities ? I am very interested in inequalities and Math exercises which have Porcupine -shape and Butterfly- shape.However, everyone will feel uncomfortable if we continue discussing about Mathematical problems. Here is very narrow.
