    I notice that your blog content is fit for the formal text in English class since that is what kids want to say and easy to understand! Our textbooks should be closed to life including science ones!

  • Young Female Liquor Taster Shares Her Story with Chinese Liquor 2018-8-17 09:29

    This is good post! But I am afraid that too much liquor might hurt her stomach and other organs! It is the payment for career just as everyone does in the modern society!
    I wish my blogs are also as tasty as wine for readers' enjoyment!
