Adjective vs. Noun

Apparently CNN's writer cannot distinguish between an adjective ("dark") or noun ("darkness").

Rescuers faced bullets, grenades, dark

Pathetic. Or in l33k speak, FAIL!

Writing gig

My first post for Download Squad is now online!

I am very flattered by Victor who invited me to blog for the Download Squad. Thanks Victor!

(Not bad for someone whom English is second language and doesn't have an English degree…)

QotD: Speak To Me In…

How many languages can you speak?  Which languages can you read or understand?

My shameful answer is that I can speak one and half languages, English and Cantonese. I barely have any opportunity to speak Cantonese nowadays that I hardly know how to. But give me couple of weeks of living with my parents or in Hong Kong, I'll be back to a more respectful level.

As for reading and understanding, I can only claim one now. Chinese is a lost cause for me. Reading and writing are so different from speaking that I'll need lots more time to (re)learn Chinese. (Not that I was good at Chinese before I immigrated to Britain but that's kind of beside the point, isn't it?)
